  • The latest “optional, non-security, C/D Week” patch for Win10 1903 and 1909 is out

    Posted on January 28th, 2020 at 12:23 Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    According to the KB article:

    • Updates an issue that prevents File Explorer’s Quick access control from pasting clipboard content using the right mouse button (right-click). 
    • Updates an issue that prevents File Explorer’s Quick access control from receiving user input.

    Those are the infamous “who says that’s a bug? we haven’t confirmed any bug!” well-documented bugs in Win10 version 1909 File Explorer Search. As far as I know, the bugs don’t occur in 1903.

    It looks like we’re getting a new version of jscript9.dll, so it probably fixes the ADV200001/CVE-2020-0674 security hole. The Security Advisory ADV200001 page does not list this update. It was last updated a week ago.

    If you’re running Win10 1903 or 1909, you’ll only get KB 4532695 if you go into the Windows Update setting app and in Optional Updates available part, click Download and install now. It’s just now being rolled out, so your machine probably won’t show it for a few hours. (Mine don’t.)

    Of course, I don’t recommend that you manually install it. Let’s see where the fur flies.

    UPDATE: Windows uber guru Rafael Rivera has further details:

    • You can left or right click inside the File Explorer Search box. (Oooooooh! Aaaaaaaah!) But if you want to right-click, you must first left-click.
    • It takes two clicks at times to reset the caret position
    • You can’t delete items in the “remembered” list

    ANOTHER UPDATE: As of Wednesday morning, it still isn’t being offered on my production machines.
