Windows 10

Microsoft has a known history of Windows bugs which come and go due to their updates. Windows 10 October 2018 update was launched a while back but it had only been received by a few users. Microsoft then re-released the same update with fixes which had previously caused some user files to be deleted. The Redmond-based company has now resolved a series of bugs that were preventing users from downloading the latest update from their servers.

The issues were caused by several third-party software such as iCloud, VPN clients, and Trend Micro’s security suite. It clearly states on the Windows 10 support page that the update is now available for the mass public:

Rollout Status as of December 17, 2018: Windows 10, version 1809, is now fully available for advanced users who manually select “Check for updates” via Windows Update.

After a year of patching Windows 10, Microsoft is finally going to focus on improving the quality and user experience of their flagship OS. Windows 10 currently runs on more than 700 million machines so obviously any changes in UI/UX or system functionality have to be tested through many variables and by different development teams. Hence any improvement becomes difficult to roll out.

What changes would you like to see in Windows 10 in the coming year?
