  1. Microsoft release fix for dark external monitor Windows 10 2004 bug Microsoft has issued a fix for a bug in Windows 10 2004 which has caused some users to have a non-functional external monitor when using some applications. The bug, which showed up in June, caused external monitors to go back when drawing in some applications including Whiteboard and Microsoft Office. It also caused an error to be raised in the Windows 10 Device Manager, with their graphics card being marked as having an issue. The fi
  2. AdDuplex: Windows 10 version 2004 is now the most popular version As is the case every month, AdDuplex has released its report detailing the usage share of various versions of Windows 10 based on data surveyed from more than 100,000 PCs through over 5,000 Microsoft Store apps that use the AdDuplex SDK v.2 or higher, as of October 26, 2020. This month’s highlight is that Windows 10 version 2004 (May 2020 Update) is now the most used version of the OS. Just last month, version 2004 overtook the May 2019 Update (version 1903) to become the second mos
  3. Microsoft releases Windows 10 build 19041.546 - here's what's new It's that time of the month again. Microsoft has released its latest optional cumulative update for Windows 10 version 2004. This update was actually released yesterday for those that are in the Beta or Release Preview channels of the Windows Insider Program, although they're on Windows 10 version 20H2. The update is KB4577063, and it brings the build number to 19041.546. You can manually download it here, and these are the highlights: Adds a notification to Interne
  4. Microsoft is removing the Miracast Connect app in Windows 10 2004 Microsoft has updated the list of features and technologies deprecated in Windows 10 2004 ie the May 2020 Update. New on the list is the Connect App, which is used to connect to wireless displays. Feature Details and mitigation Removed in version Connect app The Connect app for wireless projection using Miracas
  5. More blocks being lifted from installing the Windows 10 May 2020 Update It's been a bumpy road for the Windows 10 May 2020 Update, which was released nearly three months ago. Windows 10 version 2004 has been plagued with known issues, and many still haven't been able to upgrade their PCs. Now, more blocks are being removed, as spotted by Windows Latest. It is, however, expected though. As we reported after last month's optional cumulative update was released on July 31, a number of key known issues were fixed. But being that it was a preview updat
  6. Windows 10 Version 2004 is now available for Surface Pro X, Surface Laptop 2, Surface Pro 5 users It’s been three months since Microsoft announced Windows 10 Version 2004(a.k.a. Windows 10 May 2020 Update) for the general public, but as was the case with previous major Windows 10 updates, Windows 10 Version 2004 was not made available for every device. While this is understandable, many of Microsoft’s own Surface products didn’t receive the update, leaving everyone no choice but to think that Microsoft released the May 2020 update to the public too early.
  7. Most of Windows 10 2004 issues now resolved If you are a late adopter the time may be close for making the jump to the Windows 10 May 2020 Update. Yesterday Microsoft released cumulative update KB4568831 which brought along a large number of fixes, with the result that there are currently only 4 outstanding issues with Windows 10 2004. Those are: KNOWN ISSUES Summary Status Last updated
  8. Microsoft resolves more issues blocking the Windows 10 May 2020 Update Today, Microsoft released a new optional cumulative update for Windows 10 version 2004, and as usual, it came with a wide range of fixes. This is notable, because ever since the company released the Windows 10 May 2020 Update, it's been struggling with a whole bunch of known issues that have plagued the feature update. The good news is that some issues have been resolved today, but the bad news is that the upgrade blocks are staying in place. That's because today's update was o
  9. Windows 10 version 2004 is rolling out to more users with old versions of the OS Microsoft released Windows 10 version 2004 back in May, and it's been a bit of a bumpy road with known issues that are causing upgrade blocks. As is typically the case when a version of Windows 10 is nearing the end of support, Microsoft started force upgrading those on version 1809 to 2004 back in June, despite the fact that it promised to move them to version 1909 back in December. But of course, even with automatic updates, there are still a whole bunch of blocks in
  10. AdDuplex: The May 2020 Update is now installed on 7% of Windows 10 PCs Today, AdDuplex published its monthly report on Windows 10 and Surface usage. The data is based on the over 5,000 Microsoft Store apps that use the AdDuplex SDK v.2 or higher, and it was collected on June 29. While the Windows 10 May 2020 Update has been available for over a month now, it's still on only 7% of Windows 10 PCs. Of course, it's been a very slow rollout, and there are still a bunch of issues blocking it. Perhaps more strange is that the year-old version 1903 is still the most po
  11. How to enable hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling on Windows 10 May 2020 Update Last week Nvidia released version 451.48 driver update for Windows 10 users. The driver update introduced DirectX 12 Ultimate but also added support for hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling for Windows 10 users running May 2020 Update. In case you do not know, hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling allows the GPU to manually handle its own memory, removing the operating system from the loop. In theory, this could lead to better performance and will reduce latency. Microsoft
  12. Malwarebytes acknowledges performance issues on devices running Windows 10 v2004 Last month, Microsoft officially rolled out the Windows 10 May 2020 Update via Windows Update. Nevertheless, the update was seeded to a limited number of users as the company blocked it on a vast number of devices due to the numerous known issues. Now, Windows 10 v2004 users are facing issues when using Malwarebytes. According to users on the forums, Malwarebytes on v2004 is causing devices to freeze, lag and is even preventing apps from launching. The
  13. New Microsoft Edge browser uses up to 27% less memory on Windows 10 version 2004 If you keep an eye on memory usage on your Windows devices and run a device with Windows 10 version 2004, you may have noticed that Microsoft's new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge web browser uses less memory on that version of Windows. The new Microsoft Edge web browser uses the same core as Google Chrome, and Google's browser is notorious for using a lot of RAM when it is in use. Memory use depends largely on the activity on the Internet; users who open just one or two sites will see less
  14. Windows 10 version 2004 slams into a Storage Spaces brick wall According to official sources, the latest Windows upgrade contains a bug in the Storage Spaces feature. Information, as usual, is sketchy. We have no idea what triggers the bug, or whether rolling back to 1909 will fix it, but … why is Microsoft still driving this train wreck? Thinkstock It’s too early for the villagers to haul out their rusty pitchforks and oft-hoisted torches, but it looks like another Windows version upgrade has another data-eating bug. The bug infec
  15. Microsoft acknowledges the Storage Spaces issue, offers a way to avoid it Last month, Microsoft officially rolled out the Windows 10 May 2020 Update via Windows Update. Nevertheless, the update was seeded to a limited number of users as the company blocked it on a vast number of devices due to the numerous known issues. One of the issues that people complained about was Storage Spaces. Today Microsoft published a support page (via Techdows) acknowledging the Storage Spaces issue. According to Microsoft, users might face issues trying to access Stor
  16. Some Chrome users are getting signed out automatically on Windows 10 version 2004 Some Google Chrome users who use the browser on a device running Windows 10 version 2004 are reporting that they are getting signed out of their Google account and other accounts automatically. Microsoft released Windows 10 version 2004, also known as the May 2020 Update, last month to the public. The operating system is being rolled out over time to devices. The company published several issues when it released the update, some of which block the update from being offered to a device.
  17. The Windows 10 May 2020 Update is causing major hard drive management issues We reported earlier that Microsoft has been informed of the Fresh Start issue with Windows 10 2004, but that at least this did not result in data loss and was therefore not that serious. It seems that issue was just a harbinger of more serious issues, as Windows 10 2004 appears to have multiple issues with hard disk drive management, with uses reporting issues even with the RTM version. The first is the most serious – users are reporting issues with Storage Spaces – Microsoft’s
  18. Microsoft broke Windows 10’s Fresh Start feature in the May 2020 Update Since the Windows 10 Creators Update in 2017 Microsoft offered a Fresh Start feature in Windows Security which allowed users to re-install Windows 10 while keeping your data intact. Importantly the feature would not attempt to keep your existing apps, which would in many cases get rid of lingering compatibility issues and registry bloat, and offer users a “fresh start”, just like when they purchased their PC for the first time. The description of the feature reads: Start afresh with a cl
  19. Windows 10 Version 2004: Forced upgrade without user consent The new Windows 10 May 2020 Update (Version 2004) has been generally available since May 27, 2020 and is being rolled out only slowly. But I have already seen reports that systems are automatically updated to Windows 10 Version 2004 without any user interaction. Feature update: This is how it should work Since Windows 10 version 1903, feature updates should be offered as optional. The user must explicitly trigger the download and installation, as shown in the following screenshot for version 1903.
  20. Dell and Lenovo publish list of tested devices compatible with Windows 10 version 2004 How do you find out if a particular device is compatible with Microsoft's latest version of Windows 10, Windows 10 version 2004 or the May 2020 update? While you could give it a try and see how it goes, it is usually better to find out if a device is compatible before you run the update. Windows Update might block the update on the device as Microsoft tends to roll out updates over time and blocks certain devices from getting the update. All bets are off on the other hand if you inst
  21. It's a bumpy road for the Win10 version 2004 rollout Microsoft’s been testing the “final” version of Win10 May 2020 Update - better known as version 2004 - for almost six months now. The number and nature of extant problems at this late date hits a new low, even by Microsoft’s standards. Mark Hachman / IDG Microsoft’s revised-revised Windows 10 update scheme now entails a “major” release in the first half of the year, followed by a “minor” release in the second half of the year. The
  22. Here’s what Windows 10 2004 brings for IT Pros Windows 10 2004 or the May 2020 update brought a large number of tweaks for consumers, but Microsoft worked even harder to add features for IT Pros, including Windows Subsystem for Linux improvements, deployment improvements, improved virtualization and much more. Below is Microsoft’s list of new and updated features and content that are of interest to IT Pros. Besides those improvements, the update also contains all features and fixes included in previous cumulative updates to Windows 10, version 1909.
  23. The Windows 10 May 2020 Update still has a whole bunch of known issues Today, Microsoft released the Windows 10 May 2020 Update, also known as version 2004. It's actually been in testing with Windows Insiders for 15 months, with the RTM build being released in December, and serviced ever since. There are a few reasons that it's been in testing for so long, but one of them is because Microsoft changed the way it delivers feature updates. Version 1909 was nothing more than an enablement package. For all intents and purposes, it was just a serviced version of 1903.
  24. Here is how you can fix the “Cortana is not available” issue in Windows 10 May 2020 Update(version 2004) Microsoft’s Cortana is currently the least popular digital voice assistant and the fact that it failed to live up to the expectation made Microsoft reshape its strategy in this space multiple times, but none of its strategies proved to be successful so far. While Microsoft has been struggling to make Cortana a viable digital assistant, some Windows 10 users running the latest May 2020 Update(version 2004) are not being able to
  25. Here is what is new in Windows 10 version 2004 The next version of Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system is Windows 10 version 2004 (formerly known as Windows 10 20H1). While it won't be released for a while, it is more or less feature-complete already. The following information is based mostly on Insider builds but also on information that Microsoft provided, e.g. on its development blogs. Windows 10 version 2004: features The list is subject to change, as some features may not make it into the final version. Reset the PC using the c
