On March 18, Microsoft made available yet another update (KB5001649) for Windows 10 to address more printing issues caused by the first fix released on March 15.
According to the company, after installing the update KB5001567 (March 15 update), devices may receive unexpected results when printing from some apps or to some printers. Some problems include missing or solid color graphics, misalignment and formatting issues, or printing blank pages.
As a result of these problems, the company is now expediting a new out-of-band update to resolve the issue. The update is available as an optional update, so you need to download and install it manually through Windows Update.
You can do this by going to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update. Then, click the Check for Updates button, and then under the “Optional quality update available” section, click the Download and install option. After the installation, the version number will bump to build 19041.870 and 19042.870, depending on whether you are using version 2004 or 20H2.
The update is also available for download through the Microsoft Update Catalog website. Once you download the package for your version of Windows 10, double-click the file to install it.
Alongside the update for versions 20H2 and 2004, Microsoft is also making available the fixes for Windows 10 version 1909, 1809, 1803, 1607, and 1507.
