What’s fixed in May 2023 updates

Microsoft says the update fixes a race condition in Windows Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS), where a bug caused the Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS) to stop responding.

This occurs when the system processes multiple local account operations simultaneously. The access violation error code is 0xc0000005.

After the upgrade, you can now effortlessly sync your language and region settings whenever you update your Microsoft account display language or regional format. In addition, by enabling Language preferences sync in your Windows backup settings, your customized settings will be automatically saved to your account.

Additionally, the company has resolved an issue that previously affected Microsoft Edge IE mode. Pop-up windows will now open in the foreground instead of in the background. Another issue impacting Edge IE mode was also fixed, as the Tab Window Manager should no longer stop responding.

Thanks to this update, you may also notice a fresh look for specific mobile provider app icons. 

Moreover, the company has resolved an issue with the Chinese input method where the first suggested item was not entirely visible.
