  • 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.

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.

Thank you. Now I know. I had three disks for a short while this month, but I decided that the third was superfluous for my uses and needs, so I'm back to two now. No entertainment stuff on my PCs, so no need for massive storage. Looks as though Media and Series are your major data collections. Nice. Thanks.

I use Karen's Replicator to keep Disk1 and Disk 2 the same.
I just run it manually, every now and then. The 4TB is my "working" hard drive.
The 8TB is just in case the 4TB dies.

Do you use externals as well, to replicate Disk 0 and/or Disk 1?


No.
I use Macrium backups for the Windows Disks.
The backups are stored on the hard drives.
And the 4TB hdd is backed up to the 8TB hdd with Karen's Replicator


Image1.png


F = copies of installed programs, etc.
G = Macrium backups
H = Movies, pictures, music, etc.
I = TV series



In Karen's Replicator, I have four "jobs". All can be run at the same time, with one mouse click...

F is backed up to J
G is backed up to K
H is backup to L
I is backed up to M



I back up the Macrium backups by hand. Aka copy/paste...

Image1.png

The game Icewind Dale, stores it's save files in C:\Users\account name\Documents, instead of the game folder on the F: drive.
So the first "job" in Karen's backs that up to the F: drive.
That way, if I do a Macrium restore of the Windows drive, I don't lose my Icewind Dale save game.

I install all games to the F: drive. Fortunately, only Icewind Dale stores the save games on the C: drive.

These are all my currently installed games on the F: drive, and they all get copied via Karen's to the J: drive.
Only Icewind Dale causes problems. All the other games, have their save games in the game folder. :-)

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 make vivetool /fullreset
and after that these two commands:
vivetool /enable /id:37634385,36354489
vivetool /enable /id:40729001,37634385

and explorer same doesn't work the toolbar icons at all.

Any suggestions????
I have done all win11 updates


It may be easiest to just do an In-Place Upgrade (repair install). This will ONLY fix "Windows" problems.
If your problem is caused by a 3rd party driver or program, an In-Place Upgrade will NOT fix that.




For Windows 11...

An In-Place Upgrade "compares" what is installed on the computer, with the Windows ISO image.
Then, it overwrites any corrupted Windows files, with clean copies from the ISO image.
This is how it "repairs" Windows while allowing you to keep your programs and personal files.




Here is the short version of the In-place upgrade tutorial...

DISABLE non-Microsoft:
a) antivirus software
b) firewall software
c) drive encryption software


Make a full OS backup with a program like Macrium Reflect or AOMEI Backupper Standard
Making a backup is optional, but always a smart move.
Macrium Reflect
AOMEI Backupper Standard (free)


Get the Windows 11 ISO (Option #2), and save it to your desktop...


Right click the ISO image and choose: MOUNT
Open File Explorer and you will see a new drive letter. It will "look" like a DVD optical drive.
Double click the new drive letter to open it.
Find setup.exe and double click it to start the in-place upgrade.

Choose the Keep personal files and apps option.

After it's all done... to UNmount the ISO image, right click the new drive letter and choose: EJECT.

The ONLY thing you will lose is some of your personalizations.
Your drivers, programs and data will be intact.

Really the solution is to make the win11 install again???

This is the reason i love win7... still the most stable windows os.

I haven't install any program.
only the explorer patch that i uninstall it now to try fix the windows explorer issue with vivetool.

Please if you know tell me a way that doesn't need to install all win11 from start.
This is not an option at all for me.

It's not a fresh install. It's a repair install. All of your applications, data, and almost all settings will be retained. It was introduced at some point with Windows 10 and is one of the best improvements Microsoft ever made. It allows repairs of the OS without having to start from scratch.

Microsoft is really bad at coming up with names for things.

They should have called it... Window's Fixer-Upper. :D

Or.... Windows Repair Tool

No. A cloud reset is a full reinstall of Windows that uses the latest source and gives you the option to keep your data, but your settings will be gone and your applications will have to be reinstalled. A Repair Install is much more like installing a major Windows update.

I dunno. I don't DO anything cloud.

In-Place Upgrade does just what I said.
It uses a Windows 11 ISO that you download, and compares the files in the ISO image, to your installed Windows files.

If it sees that any of your installed Windows files are broken... it replaces them with good copies from the ISO image.



It's just like Window's System File Checker (SFC), but it's much, much stronger.
Here's how things are done... most of the time...

1. Run sfc /scannow, then see if the problem is fixed. If not...
2. Run Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth, and see if the problem is fixed. If not...
3. Do an In-Place Upgrade, and see if the problem is fixed. If not...
4. Do a clean install of Windows.




Of course the BEST way to deal with Window's problems is to use 3rd party backup software.
Like one of these...



How to use backup software...

1. When everything is working perfectly... make a full Windows backup.
2. Then, if something breaks... restore from the latest backup.
3. Then... try "whatever you were doing" a different way. If it still breaks Windows, then... go to step #2.
4. Repeat until you find a way to get "whatever you were doing", to work properly, then go to step #1.


Really.... that's all you need to do, to be able to use Windows, and NOT have problems all the time. :-)

@Gregory In another thread your posted:

"Yes, but why this is happening only at 23h2 win11 version and not to previews versions of win11?"

The reason appears to be that, before the latest update, you were running the non-App-SDK version of Explorer (the one with the address and search bar below the toolbar) either because you hadn't updated in a while or because you had disabled feature 40729001 using ViveTool or StagingTool.

The latest update removed the 40729001 feature switch, forcing you to use the app-SDK Explorer which appears to be incompatible with your display driver (as was mentioned in that other thread).

So, barring an update to your display driver, or a fix from Microsoft, you'll need to switch back to the previous Explorer or the Windows 10 Explorer.

You can use the WindHawk mod to get the previous non-app-SDK Explorer.

You can use SwitchExplorer to get the Windows 10 Explorer.

Note: WindHawk also supports switching to the Windows 10 Explorer, but since it uses the same registry entry as SwitchExplorer there's no point in installing WindHawk, in that case, (i.e. more overhead) unless you are using it for other mods.

Even that.
I don't to damage something else cause windows11 the most stable os.
So if there is a solution without need to install win11 again i accept this.
