YOUR Windows 10 PC could be at risk as major vulnerability exposed

Microsoft will focus exclusively on security updates for Windows 10

Starting in May 2020, we are pausing all optional non-security releases (C and D updates) for all supported versions of Windows client and server products (Windows 10, version 1909 down through Windows Server 2008 SP2).

This is kind of like a halfway step between the normal desktop and the Tablet Mode which kicks in when you fold your keyboard back (or remove it entirely, in the case of a detachable like one of Microsoft's Surface range). First, the Taskbar icons are more spaced out, so you have some leeway when you're tapping at them with your finger or a stylus. Furthermore, the search box on the taskbar will be collapsed into an icon-only mode.

While true believers continue to wait for a taste of things to come in the form of the interface tweaks teased by Panos Panay or a Windows 10X build that doesn't require an emulator, the Insider team had another go at rolling out a new tablet experience. Microsoft has rolled out Windows 10 v1909 to everyone which explains the increase of the market share.

Discussing the Windows vulnerability, Microsoft said: "Microsoft is aware of limited targeted attacks that could leverage un-patched vulnerabilities in the Adobe Type Manager Library, and is providing the following guidance to help reduce customer risk until the security update is released".


The other major change with build 19592 is that Windows 10 search is being graced with improved logic so it can more intelligently determine when to perform the indexing of your files. While this is good news for Microsoft, it has dropped around 2%.

So there you have it: everything except the most critical updates will be halted for the time being.

As ever, the full list of tweaks, fixes and known issues is present in Microsoft's detailed blog post on the new build.
