Wow! Windows 10 May 2020 Update has a LOT of issues
Microsoft had previously warned that the latest feature update for Windows 10 would be released with one known issue, but it turns out it has a lot more than that.
The Windows 10 May 2020 Update, also known as Windows 10 version 2004, started rolling out to users yesterday, being first made available to users running Windows 10 version 1903 or 1909.
To get the update you need to go into Windows Update and check for updates. You will want to think twice before you do this though as Microsoft has published a very long list of known and unresolved issues.
