Windows 10, new cumulative patch released: finally solved the problems with printing?

Microsoft has released the optional upgrade package KB5006738 its Windows 10 2004, Windows 10 20H2 e Windows 10 21H1. The new update fixes the latest printing issues resulting from the early mitigations of the PrintNightmare vulnerabilities. With these patches, also released separately on Windows Server, this cycle should be definitively closed.

KB5006738 is part of the monthly updates “C”, type of update that allows voluntary users to test the fixes provided for on the next Patch Tuesday. It is therefore an update aimed at the public and released on stable channels, but still optional and without security fixes. It can be installed via Windows Update by checking for updates and selecting the Download and Install button. Alternatively, the package can also be downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog.
