  • This update addresses a known issue that affects BitLocker data-only encryption. A mobile device management (MDM) service, such as Microsoft Intune, might not get the right data. This occurs when you use the FixedDrivesEncryptionType or SystemDrivesEncryptionType policy settings in the BitLocker configuration service provider (CSP) node.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects Access Point Name (APN) profiles. It stops you from automatically configuring APN profiles for cellular enabled devices. This occurs when you run the “netsh mbn show readyinfo *” command.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects Trusted Platform Modules. On certain devices, they did not initialize correctly. Because of this, TPM-based scenarios stopped working.

  • This update addresses an issue that affects a remote desktop client. It might connect to a wrong instance of a user's session. This occurs if a user has multiple sessions on the host.
  • This update addresses an issue that occurs when you change the keyboard language. The change fails to apply to RemoteApps in some scenarios.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects Windows Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS) Post Authentication Actions (PAA). The actions occur at restart instead of at the end of the grace period.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects Active Directory. Bind requests to IPv6 addresses fail. This occurs when the requestor is not joined to a domain.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects the LocalUsersAndGroups CSP. It stops processing group memberships if it cannot find a group.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects Group Policy Folder Redirection in a multi-forest deployment. The issue stops you from choosing a group account from the target domain.

  • This update addresses an issue that causes your device to shut down after 60 seconds. This occurs when you use a smart card to authenticate on a remote system.
If you installed earlier updates, only the new updates contained in this package will be downloaded and installed on your device.

Windows 11 servicing stack update - 22621.3073 and 22631.3073​

This update makes quality improvements to the servicing stack, which is the component that installs Windows updates. Servicing stack updates (SSU) ensure that you have a robust and reliable servicing stack so that your devices can receive and install Microsoft updates.

Known issues in this update​

Applies toSymptomWorkaround
All usersWindows devices using more than one (1) monitor might experience issues with desktop icons moving unexpectedly between monitors or other icon alignment issues when attempting to use Copilot in Windows (in preview).This issue is addressed on the service-side for Windows 11, versions 22H2 and 23H2 on devices with updates released January 9, 2024, or later.

Note Managed devices in your environment that have been used or are currently being used in a multimonitor configuration will not yet have Copilot for Windows available.

How to get this update​

Before installing this update

Microsoft combines the latest servicing stack update (SSU) for your operating system with the latest cumulative update (LCU). For general information about SSUs, see Servicing stack updates and Servicing Stack Updates (SSU): Frequently Asked Questions.

Install this update

Release ChannelAvailableNext Step
Windows Update or Microsoft UpdateYesGo to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update. In the Optional updates available area, you’ll find the link to download and install the update.
Windows Update for BusinessNoNone. These changes will be included in the next security update to this channel.
Microsoft Update CatalogYesTo get the standalone package for this update, go to the Microsoft Update Catalog website.
Windows Server Update Services (WSUS)NoYou can import this update into WSUS manually. See the Microsoft Update Catalog for instructions.

If you want to remove the LCU

To remove the LCU after installing the combined SSU and LCU package, use the DISM/Remove-Package command line option with the LCU package name as the argument. You can find the package name by using this command: DISM /online /get-packages.

Running Windows Update Standalone Installer (wusa.exe) with the /uninstall switch on the combined package will not work because the combined package contains the SSU. You cannot remove the SSU from the system after installation.

Also, ExplorerPatcher and WindHawk no longer work to restore the older Explorer.

Hi guys.

The KB5034204 update won't install on my PC, error 0x80070002 (computer N100). Are any of you experiencing this problem ?
I've seen other people on the web with the same problem. I've never had installation problems with other updates, this is the first time.
Do you have a solution ?

Thanks.

That still does function, but you have to use another method:
Select the 'text' on the adress bar by moving the cursor from right to left on the adress bar or clicking the far right end of the adress bar and type (or paste) the new adress.

Also, ExplorerPatcher and WindHawk no longer work to restore the older Explorer.
StartAllBack (without updates) still manages to recall the old Explorer of Win10 / Win7.
So presumably patching that still is possible, but the maker of ExplorerPatcher has to work on that.

Maybe for WindHawk the same is true, but I never used that before, because one should not mix too many tweaking apps at one time.

Switching to the Win10 Explorer is much easier. It can be done with an HKCU registry setting:

Switching to the Win10 Explorer is much easier. It can be done with an HKCU registry setting:






Unlike the Vivetool tweak for classic File Explorer, @Brink 's reg patch works and doesn't break File Explorer after the KB5034204 update. The Tabs are gone (which I like). And right clicking ThisPC in File Explorer and choosing "Open in new window", does open File Explorer in a new window...

Option #3, step #2 from the tutorial...
Image3.jpg



And... the "Default Modern File Explorer does return File Explorer to the way it was (without affecting personalizations), after the KB5034202 update. Plus, it has the "Open in new Window" and the "Open in new tab" options on the right click menu...


Option #3, step #3 from the tutorial...
Image1.png


Neither of the Option #3 registry patches affected my "personalizations" at all. Which is a "good" thing.


I only run Winaero Tweaker, TranslucentTB and ViveTool. No other tweakers

LAB TESTED.png







The only "issue" that seems to remain, is that there is no "title bar", on MS's new and improved File Explorer.
I don't see any option IN File Explorer to "enable" the title bar.




Here's the two unaltered registry patches, from the tutorial (Option #3), for Classic or Default Modern (Win 10 or Win 11), File Explorer...
for the lazy among us. :-)

Well, I spoke too soon. I started having problems with MailWasher Pro (MWP) fetching and filtering my Live Mail account. I have reported the issue on the Firetrust MWP7 Forum. They are going to send me a beta version.

There have been some reports there of MWP having some issues in the past with Outlook/Live Mail. Now, I am getting whacked with repeated MS Credential Requests to confirm MWP access to the account, which, when granted, accomplishes nothing.

I ran SFC and DISM ... /scanhealth scans, and both came back clean. I can't say for sure this update is responsible, . . . yet, but the timing is very suspicious . . .

I will report back after I get the beta, which could be Monday since Firetrust is located in New Zealand, and it is the weekend there now.

Have a great day.

Regards,
Phil

With this release, the Game Bar now opens when pressing the Guide button on an Xbox Controller, even when the setting to enable that behaviour is turned off both in Settings->Gaming->Game Bar and in the settings in the Game Bar itself. Pretty annoying when using Steam and trying to open the overlay with the Guide button!

TranslucentTB works with this update.
Disable File Explorer tabs, doesn't work starting with this update.

For anyone that used ViveTool to disable File Explorer tabs, you need to run these two commands to "enable" File Explorer tabs...

vivetool /enable /id:37634385,36354489
vivetool /enable /id:40729001,37634385

This has been updated...

I wanna meet some MS employees in a dark alley somewhere.
I wanna "Personalize" them. Buahahahaha !!
trying this too.
its a pity that we can no longer deactivate the tabs.

i used to work with the QTTabBar, much more clever and efficient.
functionalities like double click on open area (of the folder) back on step.
middle click to open another tab...
and memorize all the tabs open...

just a few among other nice functionalities. and its open source.
but sadly the last version date 2013 😥. (and i'm really impressed on how well it worked until today (WIN11H2).

and it worked. my explorer returned to open.
but at the cost of having to uninstal the QTTabBar 😥.

they both don't work well together. wen i open a new tab, file explorer just capture the middle click and evoque another tab, that happens to not work with QTTabBar (it seems to work just on the fist tab).

@Edwin

I know you've been a long-term user of QTTabBar, so I'd like to see what your reponse is to this discussion. Has this update messed up your QTTabBar deployment?

You can still deactivate the tabs.
Just choose the "Classic" File Explorer registry patch like in post #108, and you'll get this (BLUE box)...
(just the top part. The rest is MY personalizations)

Upper pic = File Explorer ribbon bar with the "Classic" reg patch.
Lower pic = just shows what will be under the "View" menu, with the same "Classic" reg patch.

Now this is what the File Explorer ribbon bar (BLUE box), looks like with the "Default Modern" reg patch...

If using the blue boot -- you can re-create the boot entry.

It also works with the legacy boot menu.

This update caused me to lose my macrium reflect in the boot menu. When I tried to roll back to a backup I had made using a usb stick with macrium restore files the backup was gone. Darn MicroSlop

And all you need to do is use Macrium to add it back in.

Also, ExplorerPatcher and WindHawk no longer work to restore the older Explorer.
After resetting my VM and testing again, ExplorerPatcher still could not enable the "Classic address bar", but WindHawk worked!

That is, the WindHawk "Classic navigation bar" option worked to restore the older Windows 11 Explorer interface. Apparently, my previous build was corrupted in some way that prevented the option from working. Ironically, the "Classic ribbon UI" option, that should be easy, did not work in WindHawk, but that's no big deal, since we have a reg hit for that. The developer is aware.

So, if you want address bar drag and drop, but don't want to go all the way back to the Windows 10 Explorer, give WindHawk a try.

Update: Switching to any older Explorer using WindHawk, ExplorerPatcher, or StartAllBack or the ribbon reg patch does NOT revert to the older Details pane where you could edit metadata directly.

The only way I know of to access the old Details pane is to launch the Windows 10 Explorer via the Control Panel (or by using a launcher, such as OldExplorer).

Has this update messed up your QTTabBar deployment?
The only W11 version I'm running is Insider Canary.
If I enable StartAllBack, then QTTabBar version 1038, it works perfectly.

nice!

i will try this combination soon...

but form now on, i will give a try without any mod.

i work with a lot of graphics (photography, illustration video and animation) and just yesterday, i noticed my workflow more stable without the QTTabBar (maybe it led the explorer to some unstable process... i don't know...).

but i will give it a try on any moment. thakyou for the tip. 😉
