  • Windows 10 gaming issues fixed with known issue rollback

    Posted on April 24th, 2021 at 12:32 Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    “A small subset of users have reported lower than expected performance in games after installing KB5000842 or later updates. Most users affected by this issue are running games full screen or borderless windowed modes and using two or more monitors,” Microsoft stated in the Windows 10 2004 and Windows 20H2 known issues and notifications site.

    This fix is being rolled out using Microsoft’s Known Issue Rollback (KIR) feature to send out a minor fix via Windows Update, which should propagate to affected users within 24 hours.

    “This issue is resolved using Known Issue Rollback (KIR). Please note that it might take up to 24 hours for the resolution to propagate automatically to consumer devices and non-managed business devices. Restarting your device might help the resolution apply to your device faster.”

     

    AH that Known issue rollback is kicking in.
