Microsoft Pushes out Major Bug Fixes for Windows 10 May 2019 Update

A new Windows 10 May 2019 update patch fixes issues with external storage, removing the block, while remedying strange behavior with game bar, night light, and other features.


Every feature upgrade comes with numerous bugs. The Windows 10 May 2019 update has been a fairly uneventful one compared to last year's releases, but it still has some annoying issues.

is rolling out fixes for a number of those this week, bumping the build to 18362.145. One of the biggest fixes is a remedy for strange behavior for external USB and SD cards, which were reassigned to the wrong drive during installation. Updates were previously halted on such devices for this reason, so those users should now be able to upgrade.

The patch also fixes issues with Night light, which would often disable when switching display modes. On the topic of display, Direct3D games should no longer enter full-screen mode if the monitor's orientation is changed.

There are a number of other more minor and major fixes, including distortion of full-screen games when Game bar is visible. Here are the full patch notes:

  • “Addresses an issue that may prevent Custom URI Schemes for Application Protocol handlers from starting the corresponding application for local intranet and trusted sites on Internet Explorer. 
  • Addresses an issue that prevents certain apps from launching when you set folder redirection for the Roaming AppData folder to a network path. 
  •  Addresses an issue that prevents the removal of Bluetooth® peripheral devices from some systems with specific Bluetooth radios. 
  • Addresses an issue that may cause event 7600 in the Domain Name System (DNS) server event log to contain an unreadable server name. 
  • Addresses an issue in which the dots per inch (DPI) of the guest does not match the host. 
  • Addresses an issue in which a File Share Witness does not remove Server Message Block (SMB) handles, which causes a server to eventually stop accepting SMB connections.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents an application protocol URL from being opened when hosted on an intranet page.
  • Addresses an issue with BranchCache when it is in distributed cache mode. BranchCache may use more disk space than assigned for the republication cache. To fully address the issue, devices that have exceeded the disk space assignments should empty BranchCache using the netsh branchcache flushcommand. 
  • Addresses an issue with creating a Windows catalog file on an x64 system using Windows System Image Manager. For more information, see What's new in ADK kits and tools.
  • Addresses an issue that causes a delay when loading many unsigned Domain Name System (DNS) zones related to the Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) feature. “
