Microsoft has just released the November “Patch Tuesday” updates for Windows 11 and Windows 10, which are now available to download from Windows Update and the Microsoft Update Catalog. If you’re already running Windows 11 on your PC, the KB5007215 patch (build 22000.318) is now available, and the key change is a fix for a bug causing rendering issues in certain apps.

In the release notes, Microsoft explained that “certain apps might have unexpected results when rendering some user interface elements or when drawing within the app. You might encounter this issue with apps that use GDI+ and set a zero (0) width pen object on displays with high dots per inch (DPI) or resolution, or if the app is using scaling.”

If you’re still running Windows 10 version 2004, 20H2, 21H1, or the upcoming version 21H2, the KB5007186 patch is also available for download today. In the release notes, Microsoft only highlighted a single key change for “an issue of a 0 (zero) width Pen to render one pixel regardless of transformation.”

As a reminder, Windows 10 version 2004 will reach end of servicing on December 14, 2021, and Microsoft now recommends these users to install a newer version of the OS. Windows 10 version 21H2, the latest version of the OS is expected to start rolling out later this month, and it’s already available for commercial customers and Windows Insiders in the Release Preview channel.
