Weekly Digest: Windows 11 news, PrintNightmare update, tech tips

In case you missed, a new preview of Windows 11 releases, Microsoft tries to fix the PrintNightmare issue, and more tips to get the most out of your PC.

This week on Pureinfotech: Microsoft released the Windows 11 build 22000.65 for devices enrolled in the Dev Channel with new changes for the Start menu, context menu, and Settings app. Also, this flight comes with a slew of improvements and bug fixes.

The company has been quietly publishing details about version 21H2 for Windows 10, including more improvements for Windows Hello, account management, and TPM attestation support.

Outside the regular schedule, the update KB5004945 for Windows 10 begins to roll out to fix the PrintNightmare vulnerability that could allow attackers to execute malicious code to create new administrator accounts, install programs, and access data without the user’s consent.

In case you missed it, you can catch up with all the major UI changes and features that Microsoft made available with Windows 11 build 22000.51 in this hands-on video. I also uploaded another video showcasing the clean installation process of Windows 11 Home and one explaining the hardware requirements and compatibility check to upgrade devices to Windows 11.

Although Microsoft has said that Windows 11 Home will require an internet connection and Microsoft account to complete the initial setup, it appears that won’t be the case since there’s a way to skip the requirements and continue with a local account.
