Nvidia's Studio drivers for GeForce GPUs revolve around creative applications rather than games, but they just swiped a nifty trick from the company's Game Ready drivers anyway. The April Studio drivers, released this week to coincide with Nvidia's GTC 2021 conference, added a one-click optimization option for creative apps in Nvidia's GeForce Experience. It's pretty darn cool for people who use the best graphics cards for both work and play.

The Patch Tuesday focus for April: Windows and Exchange (again)
On Tuesday, MIcrosoft rolled out another broad series of updates across its Windows ecosystems, including four vulnerabilities affecting Windows that have been publicly disclosed and one security flaw — reportedly exploited already — that affects the Windows kernel. That means the Windows updates get our highest "Patch Now" rating, and if you have to manage Exchange servers, be aware that the update requires additional privileges and extra steps to complete.

It also looks as if Microsoft has announced a new way to deploy updates to any device, wherever it is located, with the Windows Update for Business Service. For more information on this cloud-based management service, you can check out this Microsoft video or this Computerworld FAQ. I have included ahelpful infographic which this month looks a little lopsided (again) as all of the attention should be on the Windows and Exchange components.

The Full Nerd ep. 173: Ryzen 5000G APUs look great, Nvidia's GPU crunch continues
In this episode of The Full Nerd, Brad Chacos, Alaina Yee, and Adam Patrick Murray discuss long-anticipated AMD Ryzen APUs that you might be able to buy soon, and Nvidia graphics cards that you won't.

We kick things off with AMD's Ryzen 5000G processors, the first Ryzen APUs announced in two years. They check a lot of the boxes enthusiasts have been asking for, offering integrated Radeon graphics clocked at up to a blistering 2GHz and as many as eight Ryzen cores—bursting through the former 4-core maximum—but it's not quite all sunshine. Fast PCIe 4.0 SSDs won't hit full speeds with these chips, and they'll be coming to prebuilt systems first before launching in DIY retail form later this year.

Microsoft launches Kids Mode for Edge: Here's how to use it
Microsoft is formally launching Kids Mode for the Edge browser today, providing a protected space for kids to browse the web.

Microsoft announced what it's calling a new, native browsing mode in February, and Kids Mode started rolling out to the stable Edge browser platform on Thursday. Edge Kids Mode is specifically designed for two different age ranges: 5-8, and 9-12. While parents need to have a Microsoft account, the kids don't. 

Here's what Kids Mode offers. First, within Kids Mode the Edge browser will maximize, filling the screen and preventing kids from migrating to other applications. Tracking protection is set to Strict, blocking the majority of trackers. Bing's Safe Search is turned on, and set to Strict, preventing them from performing mature Internet searches. Ads won't be shown on new-tab pages. Finally, only 70 kid-friendly sites are allowed, though adults have the option to block or add sites as they wish.

Users condemn Microsoft for removing KB IDs from some bug documentation
Microsoft's decision in February to strip an identifier used for decades from some Windows update release notes continues to draw the ire of customers.

On Feb. 18, the company announced on its Windows IT Pro blog that it would no longer include the KB identifier — KB for Knowledge Base — in the URLs of all online release notes associated with Windows update release details. The KB identifiers have been used by Microsoft for several decades to pinpoint individual bug fixes and guide customers to the appropriate documentation.

[ Related: Microsoft revamps Windows Insider release vernacular ] "One of the primary ways that many find release notes is through the use of a KB identifier (KBID)," Christine Ahonen, a program manager at Microsoft, wrote in the post to the Windows IT Pro blog. "We use a unique identifier for each Windows update. Once a KBID is created, it is then used to identify the update throughout the release process, including documentation."
