Windows update users October 10, 2018, cheer up! Microsoft threw a big patch to fix a lot of things that were broken in the update of the damned.
Released last night, KB4469342 is full of updates, with two major changes lurking at the end of the list of changes. The error of the mapped drives to reconnect after the startup and access to a Windows device, which was an obstacle for many companies and users with home servers, has been corrected, as well as the mysterious problem that prevented the default setting of Win32 programs for certain files and app combinations.
The other elements of the long and long list of corrections include the ordering of the brightness slider to restore the screen to 50 percent on reboot, which affects the deactivation of Bluetooth headsets after a few minutes and the sorting of the display settings is borked on a multi-monitor configuration for some users.
Companies will also be pleased to see the bug fixed where Intune would mistakenly flag a device as non-compliant due to a firewall that returns a "Poor" status, which means that the affected device may lose access to corporate services such as e-mail.
There are, of course, known problems. The search bar in Windows Media Player is as fragmentary as it is, well, pretty much another supported edition of Windows 1
Not in the list of known issues for this patch is the Blue Screen of Death error experienced by Surface Book 2 users, which currently plagues those with the April 2018 update on their expensive devices . Attempting to install the KB4467682 patch, released last week for 1803, left many remixes for the uninstall option. Microsoft has updated its update recommendation, instructing users who are interested in uninstalling the ASAP and stopping the flagship hardware from receiving it.
A fix is expected for the December security update version.
Windows Insider on the preview ring of the version, of course, had the KB4469342 update from last week in order to shake up any lurking problems. After all, what is the purpose of the preview ring of the version. If only Microsoft had decided to do something similar with the same Update of October 2018, eh Brandon?
It is not irrelevant. We have just made a small change in our approach. The 1809 will go to the RP today and will be essential to help kick start maintenance. Slow was helpful to help ID stop any bugs this time.
