Microsoft releases Windows 10 Build 19640
The Windows 10 May 2020 Update is currently rolling out to users of compatible systems, although Microsoft is blocking it for some with a 'your device isn’t quite ready' message.
That’s not a problem for Insiders on the Fast ring though who today get another new build to play around with.
- How to boost your privacy and remove unwanted features from Windows 10
- Upgrade to Windows 10 Professional for only $39.95 and test untrusted programs safely with the updated Sandbox
- How to disable Cortana in Windows 10 May 2020 Update -- or even uninstall it
Build 19640 is, like most recent Insider builds, far from exciting. In fact this particular release only includes two general changes and improvements. They are:
- Based on feedback, if your Downloads folder is synced to a cloud provider, Microsoft is disabling the option to have Storage Sense automatically clear out your Downloads folder on a cycle.
- Microsoft has updated its login logic, so if your PC is set up so you need to type in your username when logging in, accidentally starting your username with a space will no longer result in an error.
Known issues in this build include:
- Microsoft is looking into an issue where some devices booting from eMMC storage bugchecked when resuming from hibernate.
- Microsoft is looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build.
- Microsoft is working on fixing an issue for a future Insider Preview build where in Settings > Privacy, the Documents and Downloads sections show a broken icon next to their page name (just a rectangle).
- Microsoft is looking into reports that taskbar preview thumbnails aren’t rendering consistently (showing a blank area).
