Microsoft releases fix for desktop PCs on Windows 10 systems • The Register

Microsoft has fixed another issue in some versions of Windows 10, a bug that causes the taskbar and desktop to temporarily disappear or the system to ignore you.

According to Redmond, users “might encounter an error in which the desktop or taskbar might disappear momentarily, or your device might become unresponsive.” The issue affects PCs running Windows 10 versions 22H2, 21H2, 21H1, and 20H2, the company wrote on its Windows Health dashboard.

Microsoft didn’t describe the exact cause, but did note that it was related to cumulative update KB5016688 220820_03051 and later.

The software giant is using its Known Issue Rollback (KIR) feature – which allows IT admins to roll back unwanted changes from an update – to fix the problem, adding that it could take up to 24 hours for the fix reaches the unmanaged. enterprise systems and consumer devices. Restarting the device may speed up the delay.

Organizations that use company-managed devices can install and configure a special Group Policy by going to “Computer Configuration”, then “Administrative Templates” and “Group Policy Name”.

If the resolution does not work, users can try restarting the Windows device, according to Microsoft.

Latest patch comes after a number of other issues have been resolved this week.

Over the past week, Microsoft has addressed issues in Windows 10 and 11 systems caused when users installed update KB5019509, leaving some unable to reconnect to Direct Access after temporarily losing connectivity with the network or the transition between the Wi-Fi network or access points.

The company also used the KIR tool for this fix.

Additionally, updates released on November 8 or later for particular Windows Server systems caused issues with the Kerberos authentication protocol, including group managed service accounts, domain user logins , remote desktop connections using domain users, access to shared folders on workstations, file shares on servers, and printer connections. ®
