Windows 10 KB5004296 Update Rolled Out

Windows 10 KB5004296 Rolled Out For v2004, v20H2, and v21H1, Solving Gaming Issues

Microsoft has rolled out a new KB5004296 update for those in need and is available through Windows Update Center. This new cumulative update is aimed at solving the issues that the August Patch Tuesday update fixes.

But, if you can’t wait until then, get the KB5004296 now. This is available for Windows 10 2004, 20H2, and 21H1 versions and is available as an optional update under Windows Update Center if checked.

Since it’s optional, it won’t be installed automatically and needs manual intervention. If you’re unable to see in the Windows Update Center even after checking, try offline installers that Microsoft provided officially.

For offline installing, you should know your system version, though. Go to Settings > System > About to know information on your system.

Windows 10 version 21H1 installing this update will have their build bumped to v19043.1151, and Win10 October 20H2 will see it as build 19042.1151. The KB5004296 update aims to solve printing problems caused by the wrong output on devices using USB connections.

Also, gaming issues like not opening few games and having reduced frame rates since April this year.

Further, the power plans like “balanced” or “high performance” are not working properly on some configurations, and the inability to detect internet connectivity when connected to a virtual private network (VPN) service.
