The new update fixes a problem with certain printers only working as scanners. Now, they should function properly.
Also, soon, you’ll get a better weather display on your lock screen. It’ll show more details about the weather and let you interact with it, making it more dynamic and useful.
This update doesn’t focus on security but brings some improvements in quality. Microsoft has been busy ensuring they follow the Digital Markets Act (DMA) rules in the European Economic Area (EEA).
They’ll slowly introduce these changes to Windows 10 PCs, version 22H2, in the EEA to meet the regulations by March 6, 2024.
Changelog of update KB5034203
- This update resolves an issue that was causing trouble for certain single-function printers, which were only functioning as scanners.
- There will be exciting enhancements to your lock screen’s weather display in the upcoming weeks. You’ll notice more dynamic and interactive weather updates. You’ll see additional weather details when you hover over the time on your lock screen. If you click or tap on the weather card and sign in, Microsoft Edge will open with the complete forecast in MSN weather.
- If you’re already using Weather in Settings > Personalization > lock screen > Lock screen status, you don’t need to take any additional steps. Moreover, this new feature will be turned on automatically if the lock screen status is set to “None.” As usual, the lock screen status will appear when you lock the screen, no matter which customization option you’ve chosen (Windows Spotlight, Image, or Slideshow).
