Slowly and steadily, we are getting there. Microsoft today released a new optional cumulative update for Windows 10 version 2004. And as is usually the case, this one came with a bunch of fixes.
Build 19041.423 is optional, meaning if you check for updates on your system you will see it listed in the Optional updates section. It will not be installed automatically, but you will have the option of deploying it if you want.
And you will want, as KB4568831 contains a notably amount of fixes.
Including many for the newly released Windows 10 May 2020 Update. This latest version of the OS has struggled with a whole bunch of problems ever since release. But the good news is that Microsoft finally seems to be getting around them.
Many of these issues have been resolved today, and only four more problems remain before the update blocks can be completely lifted, and Windows 10 version 2004 becomes available for more users.
The two main glitches that have been fixed are the one where Windows 10 machines had trouble connecting to more than one Bluetooth device with certain Realtek drivers, and the one where these systems had trouble with variable refresh rate not working on Intel integrated GPU hardware.
The software titan has another issue listed as being mitigated, the one for older NVIDIA display drivers, though this one will likely be fixed in the August Patch Tuesday.
Microsoft also introduced a new issue today, which the company is still investigating. This one relates to devices with apps or devices using certain versions of aksfridge.sys or aksdf.sys.
If you are affected by one of these issues that have been fixed, you theoretically have the option of force installing version 2004 on your PC and install this optional update. Of course, this is not recommended, but the choice is now here.
Alternatively, you can wait for the blocks to be lifted next month.
