Microsoft has recently released the KB5030219 update, also known as the September 2023 Patch Tuesday update, for Windows 11 version 22H2. Similar to last month’s update, this release is relatively minor. However, we are eagerly anticipating the public preview of the first update for version 23H2.
According to the release notes, this update addresses a specific issue related to the Sticky Keys menu. Specifically, it removes a blank menu item that appears after installing the KB5029351 update. Additionally, this update includes security fixes for the Windows operating system.

Looking back at the August update preview, Microsoft introduced several improvements that are part of this September update. These enhancements include a new hover behavior for the Search box in the Taskbar, minor default behavior changes for certain apps, and a new “Enable optional updates” policy for managed businesses.
Looking ahead, Microsoft has scheduled the delivery of the next cumulative update preview for Windows 11 version 22H2 on Tuesday, September 26, in two weeks’ time. This update is expected to be Windows 11 version 23H2, also known as “Moment 4.” The general release is anticipated to take place on Patch Tuesday next month, specifically on October 10.
