WINDOWS 11 KB5008295

Windows 11 KB5008295 applies to the beta and developer channels. The version number is unchanged but the installation can be verified in the update history.

  • We fixed a known issue that might prevent some users from opening or using certain built-in Windows apps or parts of some built-in apps. This issue occurs because of a Microsoft digital certificate that expired October 31, 2021. This issue might affect the following applications:
    • Snipping Tool
    • Touch Keyboard, Voice Typing, and Emoji Panel
    • Input Method Editor user interface (IME UI)
    • Getting started and Tips
  • We fixed a known issue that prevents the Start menu and Settings app from opening as expected (S-mode only).

The expired certificate will also impact all unsupported versions of Windows. Updates will no longer work. The impact will be seen far and wide.
