The magnifying glass function also stopped the service when it was called up in Excel. As a result, Microsoft also crashed Excel. However, two issues with Edge’s IE mode have been resolved that occurred when opening SharePoint documents and processing anchor links.

In addition, problems with displaying the start menu in a VDI environment should be a thing of the past. Also some apps in .msi format could not be installed recently, but only if the app folder was moved to a network folder by group policy.

Other bug fixes include Microsoft Outlook, opening new windows on servers configured for high contrast, and IoT devices. The latter were no longer activated after the installation of previous cumulative updates.

In addition, Windows Hello’s face detection is said to work more reliably and Microsoft Defender ATP is better able to detect certain harmful code injection processes. Another bug recently led to the family filter not working properly on ARM64 devices. As always, a complete list of all fixes can be found on the Microsoft website.

Microsoft also used the restart of the monthly non-security updates for Windows 10 to introduce general changes. If there were up to two additional updates with release dates in the third and fourth calendar week (C and D update) before the Corona crisis, the company is now restricting itself to one C update in the third calendar week. In addition, this update is now referred to as “Preview”. So it is optional – all of its corrections, changes and improvements are also included in the update, which is automatically distributed on the following patch day. In addition, Microsoft does not offer the preview updates via the Windows Server Update Services (WSUS).
