Windows 10 KB5036892 is now available to everyone and comes with some new features such as: B. the Bing Spotlight integration on the desktop. This Patch Tuesday security update can be installed via Windows Update or you can also download offline installers for Windows 10 KB5036892 in .msu via the Update Catalog.

KB5036892 is a major update with MSN feed and other features. For example, you can now use Bing-provided wallpapers on a desktop and try MSN Maps on your lock screen. Some may not like the MSN cards on the lock screen, but Spotlight on the desktop is a pretty good addition to Windows 10.

It works really well and can be configured through the personalization settings. If you like this feature, you can download the update from Settings > Updates & Security > Windows Update. When you click Check for Updates, you will see the following patch:

There's a new feature called Windows Spotlight for your desktop background. This means that your wallpaper will transform itself into various beautiful images.

Next, the lock screen becomes more and more interesting. Now, in addition to the weather, you can also get up-to-date information on sports, traffic and money matters right on your lock screen. You can enable this in the same place as the wallpaper. Just search for “Lock Screen” in Settings. Like the wallpaper function, this will also gradually be available to everyone.

Microsoft also fixed an issue where the keyboard you use by touching the screen would sometimes not appear as intended.

When you log in to your computer, you may see a message asking if you want to upgrade to Windows 11. This will only appear if your computer can upgrade to Windows 11. And again, this is something that not everyone will see right away.

There's also something new for companies that use Windows Hello. IT staff can now use a special setting to prevent a prompt from appearing when users log in. This is intended for both Windows 10 and Windows 11 devices and is intended to make signing in smoother.

Finally, if you're in the European Economic Area, the search box in the taskbar will display highlights so you can get updates and information quickly. To learn more about this, there is a place on the Windows website that explains it.

All of these updates are intended to improve your Windows experience. However, if you discover any new issues, let us know in the comments below.
