Windows 10 Version 2004 released
« on: May 30, 2020, 04:28:48 AM »

Windows 10 version 2004 has been released by Microsoft.

Some of the changes are at https://www.neowin.net/news/windows-10-version-2004-is-coming---heres-what-you-need-to-know-about-it/ though I think their are lots of under the hood improvements as well.

Before upgrading it might be worth looking at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/release-information/status-windows-10-2004

I'm still on 1903 and it works for me.

I don't know if its just me who thinks this, but why do Microsoft feel the need to keep updating the entire OS twice a year? That's not even matching the old cycle when we had to buy physical editions and updates.

The OS only really needs security updates and bugs fixing.

I was disappointed that a well known American tech guy did a livestream the other day advising people to update their windows to the latest version, even saying something like "people worry about bugs but 99% of you won't be affected". It seemed like an unwise decision with a blase attitude.

Because the OS when they moved to Windows 8 became a complete clusterfsck of mismatched components.

They are trying to move everything over to a single more simplified UI and correct the many issues in legacy code, including some security vulnerabilities that have been around for decades as they never put the resources into fixes for fear of breaking compatibility.

Its not a great situation but I do believe this ultimately needs doing to secure the OS.  Its clearly a difficult process and they are naturally running into the very compatibility issues that prevented them doing it years ago.  Why they seem to keep finding them AFTER release rather than before is anyones guess.

I think I'll be leaving mine until this is resolved. ;)

I have two PCs running W10 Pro and a laptop running W10 home.

I've updated the laptop. Only minor issue was that after the upgrade Google Backup and Sync lost sight of the Documents folder, but after repointing it to the correct place that is fine.

I'm about to upgrade the wife's PC.

On my PC Windows update is displaying the attached. I can't see an obvious way to force the update now.

All the article is saying is that if some people are stupid enough to override the delay M$ have in place for some configurations they may have problems.

Where's the issue?

If someone wants to upgrade once a year, I would suggest getting the second update each year.

The first update seems to be the big one, while the one issued in H2 is minor - in fact most of the code for 1909 was actually included in 1903 but needed a switch to activate it - and that seems to be the pattern MS are now following

Slightly different minor issue with Google backup and sync on the wife's PC but otherwise all nominal.

I still need to get my desktop and laptop to win 10, but this is going to be the LTSC build, which I know will feel slightly out of date, but I just cant get my head around the mentality of upgrading my entire OS every 12-18 months to unstable builds.

After that point I would likely update to newer LTSC builds perhaps every other build so every 6 years or so.

Installed 2004 on my old i5, dual boot, Win 10 Home/Linux Mint desktop PC a few days ago, no ill effects to date, not had much time to investigate any changes or new features as yet.

Will hold installation on my main Ryzen-5, Win 10 Home desktop PC just in case any issues come to light.

My main PC updated yesterday, was surprised how long it took to install, by far the longest update that I can remember.

Only ill effects was my jumpy mouse problem occurring again (easily fixed), and some default programs reset, other than that so far so good.

Just noted one anomaly which I can only assume is associated with the feature update.
Local network devices not displaying on Win explorer.
This known anomaly goes back a very long time since v.1809 with MS failing to produce a solution, ironically until very recently, there is a work around for the issue which I have installed on my main PC, will have to look the details out again.

Good old MS, there's always at least one issue with their updates, most likely more, just a matter of finding them.

It is bizarre when you consider that very thing is why some people stuck with Windows rather than moving to Linux.

The "work around" for this issue now appears not to work with 2004 so MS seem to have not only re-introduced the issue but stopped the long established work around from working !

Rather long thread relating to the issue:
