A new Windows 11 update has just been rolled out and it fixes one of the most critical bugs encountered through the operating system. This one left many PCs brain dead – with a reboot only happening after 40 minutes of waiting. 

Normally Windows 11 should only take a few seconds to load. It is therefore unacceptable to have to wait for almost three quarters of an hour. Fortunately, the optional Windows 11 KB5012643 update should fix this problem.

Since this is an optional update, it won’t be installed automatically, but it’s worth getting if your Windows interface is taking too long to appear.

The update also includes fixes for various other issues, including misaligned video subtitles and app window resizing issues.

It’s worth checking Microsoft ‘s release notes related to this update. If an issue you are experiencing is listed, waste no more time and install this valuable patch.
