Microsoft are getting close to the release of the Windows 10 version 2004 (20H1), probably to be known as the April 2020 Update. In preparation of the release Microsoft have updated build 19041 on slow ring with a new cumulative update. KB4540409 takes the build to 19041.113 and it fixes a number of issues with the OS. I expect the update to go on general release at the end of March or early April. You can read all about the changes in What’s new in the Windows 10 April 2020 Update article.

Here are the fixes and known issues:

  • We fixed an issue that might block digital rights management (DRM) video playback in apps that depend on the Windows 8.0 or later PlayReady Store Framework for content protection.
  • We have updated the copyright date for Windows 10, version 2004 to the year 2020.
  • We have fixed an issue that causes the Notepad icon to appear on the Start menu after uninstalling the Feature-on-Demand (FOD) version of Notepad.
  • We have fixed an issue that might cause some systems to stop responding at sign in because several background services are being hosted in the same service host process.
  • We have fixed an issue with the Your Phone app that might cause the copying of large PC files (such as images) to certain phone models to time out.
  • We have fixed an issue with cellular data for certain mobile carriers that might prevent connectivity on Microsoft Surface Pro X.
  • We have fixed an issue that fails to pin the new Microsoft Edge icon to the taskbar after a user installs the new Microsoft Edge and creates a new user profile on the device.
  • We have fixed an issue that prevents some users from signing out because the user session stops responding.

Known issues

  • We are aware Narrator and NVDA users that seek the latest release of Microsoft Edge based on Chromium may experience some difficulty when navigating and reading certain web content.

  1. poorly written article – take a Tech Writhing course! Windows 10 “Windows Update” is a product key word. On a gigabyte internet service, checking for updates takes 30 minutes! During the crisis, Microsoft Quality Assurance has failed, potentially adding unnecessary cost and personal risk to many users.
