We know, lots of years passed since most of us left both Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 behind and moved on to newer, safer, more performant versions of the operating system.
And, seeing how we’re already using Windows 11 now, you can understand just how much time has actually passed ever since.
But Microsoft hasn’t forgotten about these two obsolete operating systems, even though they have reached the end of mainstream support and are now in extended security update (ESU) support.
Thus, during this month’s Patch Tuesday rollout, the Redmond tech company also provided a cumulative update for users will on these versions.
KB5011552 doesn’t bring that many changes for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, just some small administrator management tweaks.
The release for this OS is a bit larger than the one for its predecessor, but the difference is barely noticeable. KB5011564 actually addresses an issue in which some low integrity level process apps might print unexpectedly.
As usual, these updates should be delivered automatically but if you’d like to hurry Windows along head to Windows Update and try to get your system to update manually.
It’s worth noting too that this update on Windows 7 is only for customers paying to keep their system up to date.
