KB5014699 is a cumulative security update and is available as part of the June 2022 Patch Tuesday cycle. Since Windows 10 is no longer Microsoft’s primary operating system, you won’t see any major changes in the latest update or upcoming cumulative releases.

As we reported recently, Windows 10 users have reported an annoying bug that causes apps to crash with useless messages. As a result, some people have paused their Windows updates to minimize app crashes. The bug occurs when the user opens their favorite app with .NET Framework and it only affects people who have the latest updates.
Thankfully, Microsoft has finally fixed the remaining app compatibility issues and most apps should work just fine on Windows 10.
