  • Two major bugs continue to dog Win10 version 1909 — A mysterious persistent wake-up call, and the ubiquitous File Explorer Search bugs

    Microsoft said the 1909 upgrade would be easy — a “master switch” change to an already altered Win10 version 1903. It didn’t work out that way.

    I see two persistent bugs with Win10 version 1909:

    • An uncanny ability, on some machines, to wake itself up every day
    • The long-documented File Explorer Search bugs

    This, in addition to all the bugs you expect with changed versions — drivers, installation problems and the like.

    I think that “master switch” metaphor is yet another piece of Microsoft Marketing drivel.

    That said, I fervently hope that Microsoft will revert to one major upgrade a year.
