Windows 10 gets cumulative update KB5008212 to fix many bugs

On the last Patch Tuesday event day of 2021, Microsoft released cumulative update KB5008212 for Windows 10 Version 2004 and 20H2/21H1/21H2 feature updates. The update can be obtained through Windows Update or WSUS, but Microsoft has also released an offline installation package.

If you have installed the optional cumulative update last month, KB5008212 is just a security update. However, if you only installed the November 2021 Patch Tuesday update, this cumulative update will also fix non-security issues with your Windows installation.

This is because cumulative updates include fixes from previous months in a single package. If you skip the past few updates or the November 2021 optional patch, installing today’s update will also apply the fixes of these updates. Windows as a service method ensure that a single monthly update can satisfy all missing updates.

This cumulative update also applies to Windows 10 Version 2004, but please remember that this will be the last patch received by the old operating system. As you may know, Windows 10 Consumer Edition supports 18 months, and Enterprise Edition or Education Edition can get 30 months of updates. Windows 10 Version 2004 Consumer Edition has reached EOL today.
