There had been countless debates online about how great or awful Windows 10 is. There’s no denying that the operating system created by Microsoft had some issues, but Microsoft keeps updating it since its initial release in 2015. Some tech lovers even speculate that there won’t ever be a successor for Windows 10, as Microsoft will prefer instead to update its latest operating system as much as possible.
While only time will tell if it’s true, what’s certain is that not all updates received by Windows 10 brought some benefits. It’s also the case for the May Update, and Microsoft itself admits it.
10 issues investigated
Microsoft is currently investigating techical issues that Windows 10 has to deal with while updated with the May package. There are unexpected errors or reboots with always-on and always-connected devices. Microsoft Surface Pro 7 or Surface Laptop 3 are among the devices affected.
The Windows 10 May update is also blocked on PCs with apps or games installed that are using the GameInput Redistributable. It’s unknown exactly which apps and games are targetted, but the company has found that “affected apps or games might lose mouse input” while installing the May 2020 Update.
While Windows 10 received the stable update for May 2020, this was supposed to add some worth-mentioning features like an overhauled version of Cortana, Your Phone feature for Windows on ARM, Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) 2, and even more. Although those features came, issues also came along with them.
Microsoft itself said about its update:
“Save time finding what you need and enhance your productivity with the new chat-based Cortana experience in Windows 10. Sign in with your school or work account and ask Cortana to quickly check your schedule, connect with people, set reminders, or add tasks in Microsoft To Do. Simply type or click on the microphone button and speak commands such as “Am I free at 9?”, “Find time with Nestor to talk about the budget”, “Join my meeting”, “Remind me to review expenses every Friday at 3pm”, and more.”
We can surely trust Microsoft to be doing its best to fix the situation ASAP.
