The issues also affected voice typing and the getting started and tips sections of Windows 11.

Microsoft started testing a patch for the problems with Beta and Release Preview testers of Windows 11 and has now released the fix for all Windows 11 users.

Those running Windows 11 will be offered the KB5008295 update, and it will automatically install from Windows Update. This patch does require a reboot, and Microsoft noted that it will address all of the issues from the expired certificate, including the accounts page in Windows 11 with S mode failing to load.

Microsoft was relatively quick to address these problems after the company discovered the certificate issue. It's unusual for Microsoft to issue out-of-band patches that aren't security-related for its Windows operating systems, and this is one of the first emergency-style fixes for Windows 11.

Microsoft's latest Windows 11 patch comes just two weeks after the company had to issue a fix for AMD CPU performance in the OS. A bug was slowing performance on Ryzen processors by up to 15 per cent in certain games. (ANI)
