Recently, Microsoft pushed the optional update of the new version of Windows 11 KB5007262, which updated the system version to Windows 11 Build 22000.348, bringing new emojis and new features such as the taskbar. With this update, the blue screen of death has appeared again-don’t get me wrong, it’s not that the system has become more unstable, but Microsoft decided to change the screen of the crash from the black screen to the classic blue screen.
It is understood that Windows 11 KB5007262 is an optional cumulative update, which is part of Microsoft’s November 2021 update cycle. This means that the update will not be downloaded and installed automatically, but users can manually install the patch if they need specific improvements and fixes.
Windows 11 KB5007262 supports Microsoft’s Fluent style new emoji, which Microsoft has been promoting in the past few months. Before, Microsoft officially stated that the new emoticons are 3D, but the actual emoticons brought by this push are 2D, and the 3D emoticons did not appear.
But it should be noted that the new 2D emoticons are also unique to Windows11, at least for now. I don’t know if they will be provided to other Windows systems in the future.
Like Win10, cumulative updates for Win11 are also provided in msu format through the Microsoft Update Catalog. If you cannot get the update through Windows Update, you can download the patch and install it through this link.
It should be noted that Win11 patches are divided into x64 and ARM64 versions. After finding the corresponding patch, click the download button, the Edge browser will start the download directly, while other browsers may need to copy the msu link and open a new tab to download it manually.
