Windows Update has a nasty habit of updating your PC at the worst times, but sometimes Microsoft will release optional updates, which you can download when it’s best for you. Microsoft has just released one of these optional updates called KB5000842, and it contains a lot of nice fixes for Windows 10.

What’s in the Windows 10 KB5000842 Update?

As you might expect from an optional update, there isn’t anything huge or important in the patch notes. However, some nice additions make it a worthwhile update to grab if you can spare the time.

For instance, if you use HDR and notice things are a little darker than they should be, the update will fix that nasty buy and get your colors back to normal.
