Microsoft has released a new optional patch for the Windows 10 May 2020 Update today. The build 19041.546 (KB4577063) fixes an issue with spatial audio in games, as well as distortion problems for users of Windows Mixed Reality headsets. You can read what Microsoft highlighted about this optional patch below, and the full release notes are available on this page:

  • Adds a notification to Internet Explorer 11 that informs users about the end of support for Adobe Flash in December 2020. For more information, see KB4581051.
  • Updates an issue that causes games that use spatial audio to stop working.
  • Reduces distortions and aberrations in Windows Mixed Reality head-mounted displays (HMD).
  • Ensures that new Windows Mixed Reality HMDs meet minimum specification requirements and default to a 90Hz refresh rate.
  • Adds support for certain new Windows Mixed Reality motion controllers.

As usual, this optional update has to be downloaded manually from Windows Update. Those of you who choose to skip it will still get all these quality fixes in this month’s Patch Tuesday.
