  • Parmar: A fix for the bug(s) in Win10 1909 File Explorer is on the way

    While there have been bugs and complaints about the latest version of Win10, version 1909, the one that keeps coming back revolves around Search in File Explorer.

    Mayank Parmar just posted an article for Windows Latest that boldly predicts Microsoft will fix the problem in January.

    In the changelog of Windows 10 20H1 Build 19013, Microsoft noted that it has resolved an issue where it is not possible to set focus to File Explorer’s search box… It’s worth pointing out that Build 19013 was shipped to testers a few weeks before the [Win10 1909] November 2019 Update release.

    The implication being that Microsoft knew about the bug(s), knew they were in Win10 1909, had two chances to fix it (in the November and December Patch Tuesday volleys), and simply didn’t.

    Tell me again how Windows patching is getting better…
