In what is the last scheduled update for Windows 11 this year, Microsoft released the KB5008215 update. The update takes the operating system up to build 22000.376 and includes numerous security fixes.

Among the changes introduced in this update are new emoji, as well as a fix for an issue that prevented the appearance of File Explorer and desktop shortcut menus. The fixes for SSD performance problems addressed by the previously released KB5007262 are also included.

Microsoft's support page for the update contains very little information about what anyone who installs it can expect. The company simply says that it "updates security for your Windows operating system".

Despite the rather sparse release notes, Microsoft has shared a video that not only gives some detail about the update, but also includes various tips for Windows 11. Other issues that are addressed are Bluetooth volume control problems, and an issue that caused File Explorer to stop working.

There is also speculation that MSI and VPN fixes are also included.

The KB5008215 update is available to download via Windows Update, or from the Microsoft Update Catalog.
