Microsoft has just released this month’s Patch Tuesday updates for all PCs running Windows 11 and supported versions of Windows 10. For Windows 11 users, the key change in today’s KB5009566 patch is a fix for bug causing text to appear out of order when using Japanese Input Method Editors.

The software giant is still working to fix a known issue causing some image editing programs to not render colors correctly on certain high dynamic range (HDR) displays. The company expects to release a fix for this specific Windows 11 bug in an optional update later this month.

If you’re still running Windows 10 version 2004, 20H2, 21H1, or 21H2, you can download today the patch KB5009543 that fixes the aforementioned bug with Japanese IMEs. Microsoft also highlighted a second fix for “an issue that prevents Active Directory (AD) attributes from being written properly during a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) modify operation when you make multiple attribute changes.”

That’s it for the January 2022 Patch Tuesday updates, which are available to download from Windows Update as well as the Microsoft Update Catalog. If you have yet to install Windows 11 on your Windows 10 PC, you may also see the new OS being offered as a an optional update in Windows Update.
