Microsoft is now rolling out this year’s second last security update for Windows 10 version 2004 or later. The update is rolling out via Windows Update. Additionally, Microsoft has also published direct download links for Windows 10 KB5007186 offline installers.
KB5007186 is part of the company’s usual Patch Tuesday cycle, which is a popular term for the day when new security updates are released for Windows. This update patches security vulnerabilities and includes previous fixes as well. That’s because Microsoft gathers older fixes into the latest update, which is downloaded automatically.
If you’re on May 2021 Update, you should get Build 19043.1348 when you download and install this update. If you’ve already upgraded to version 21H2 aka November 2021 Update, you’ll receive the same set of bug fixes and improvements, but the build revision would be Build 19044.1348.
For those still running version 20H2, they’ll get Windows 10 Build 19042.1348. In case you’ve version 2004, Microsoft says this would be the last security patch for consumer editions of the OS version.

What’s new and fixed in Windows 10 Build 19043.1348
With today’s security update, Microsoft has fixed an issue that prevents subtitles from appearing in certain video apps, but Movies & TV was not affected. According to official release notes, Windows 10 bug also blocked subtitles on certain streaming sites.
Another bug has been fixed where the lock screen background appears black when you’ve configured a slideshow of pictures as a lock screen background.
For enterprises and consumers, Microsoft has also addressed a bug that could prevent some users from viewing the out-of-box experience (OOBE) pages. This bug was experienced on devices using credentials of Azure Active Directory and if you press the Windows key five times.
Microsoft is also rolling out fixes for a bug affecting Assigned Access kiosks that use Microsoft Edge as a kiosk application. Microsoft has patched an issue where App-V causes black screens to appear when users sign-in on the credentials page.
It’s worth noting that Windows 10 version 2004 will reach the end of service in December 2021 and those still using it will be automatically updated to version 21H1 or 21H2 whether they like it or not.
Early next year, we’re expecting Microsoft to forcibly install Windows 10’s latest updates on devices running certain outdated versions. By early 2021, most users of version 2004 will be required to download and install version 21H1 or newer. If you’re using an unsupported PC, you will be notified of the end of service via a notice on the Windows Update.
