The July 2024 Windows security update is now available

The July 2024 security update is now available for all supported versions of Windows. We recommend that you install these updates promptly. For more information about the contents of this update, see the release notes, which are easily accessible from the Windows 11 and Windows 10 update history pages. To learn more about the different types of monthly quality updates, see Windows monthly updates explained. To be informed about the latest updates and releases, follow us on X @WindowsUpdate.

Highlights for the Windows 11, versions 23H2 and 22H2 update: 
  • This security update includes improvements that were a part of update KB5039302 (released June 25, 2024). 
  • We are advancing the Copilot experience on Windows. The Copilot app is now pinned to the taskbar and behaves like an app. This gives you the benefits of a typical app experience. For example, you can resize, move, and snap the window. For existing Windows 11 PCs, the timing of availability and delivery method will vary. This might not be available to all users because it will roll out gradually. 
  • This update addresses an issue that affects Windows Installer. When it repairs an application, the User Account Control (UAC) does not prompt for your credentials. After you install this update, the UAC will prompt for them. Because of this, you might have to update your automation scripts.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects Remote Desktop MultiPoint Server. A race condition causes the service to stop responding.
