Microsoft finally announced that the Windows 10 May 2020 update is finally available for everyone. The Windows 10 update will target mainly the major bugs issue. Initially, when the update was rolled out, it did not reach all PCs, and now, Microsoft announced that everyone can access them as all the locks and installation prohibitions were removed from the update only in January 2021.

Microsoft also mentioned that users can now directly install Windows 10 May 2020 Update on an earlier version of Windows 10.

Among the major bug issues is an issue that made it impossible to open documents stored on the desktop and another one pertains to the rogue behavior of the Alt+Tab command. Other issues addressed in the new update includes the following:

An issue that causes a device to stop responding when anyone plays a gale in full-screen or tablet mode.

An issue with using Ctrl+Caps Lock and Alt+Caps Lock to switch to Hiragana or Katakana mode respectively after upgrading to Windows 10, version 2004.

An issue that creates duplicate cloud provider folders in the File Explorer navigation pane.

An issue with some special key combinations used in DaYi, Yi, and Array IMEs that might cause an application to stop working.

An issue that fails to show Extract all on the shortcut menu when a user right-clicks an online-only ZIP file.

Before installing the new update Microsoft draws attention to the following issue, “System and user certificates might be lost when updating a device from Windows 10, version 1809 or later to a later version of Windows 10. Devices will only be impacted if they have already installed any Latest cumulative update (LCU) released September 16, 2020, or later and then proceed to update to a later version of Windows 10 from media or an installation source that does not have an LCU released October 13, 2020, or later integrated.

This primarily happens when managed devices are updated using outdated bundles or media through update management tools such as Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) or Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager. This might also happen when using outdated physical media or ISO images that do not have the latest updates integrated.”
