As an optional update, KB5009596 is more secure than the preview builds provided to Windows Insiders. Windows 10 users who are having issues with their installations and can’t wait for February’s Patch Tuesday update should install the optional update.
Users who have upgraded to Windows 11 should note that Microsoft has released KB5008353 updates which increase the build number to 22000.469. Windows 10 users who are running 1809 receive KB5009616, which bumps the build number to 17763.2510. For devices that are using Windows 10 1607, the build number of KB5009546 rises to 14393.4886.
With this non-security update, you will have access to a new feature called “Sync your Settings”. The backup feature allows you to keep track of the apps you have installed on your Microsoft account, helping you to restore them if you migrate from Windows 10 to Windows 11 on the same device or another.
It is expected that Microsoft will roll out this new feature to everyone in the near future so migration to Windows 11 becomes easier. Microsoft also addresses a problem that might prevent PowerShell’s Get-TPM command from reporting Trusted Platform Module (TPM) information. It fails with an error showing “0x80090011 Microsoft.Tpm.Commands.TpmWmiException,Microsoft.Tpm.Commands.GetTpmCommand”.
