Windows 10 2004 update issue.

Recommended Posts

I did have one computer that told me I had the update out of 8 Windows 10 computers that I have. I did the update to the 2004 and it is running normal except that it seems to turn on the Task View thingy and shrinks up my opened programs into small windows on the screen. If you know what Task View is then you will know what I mean. For example. I have Word open and Chrome(this is on a laptop). So what happens is that I have Word open and I open up Chrome and my finger moves on the touchpad to the right and Word and Chrome shrinks up to two 3X3" boxes on the left upper side of my screen. I do not have the Task View on my Taskbar because I don't use it and I had removed it. But with this new update the Task View works like it is initiated. It usually shows up on the Task Bar as it's own icon. My icon is not there but the Task View is working it's magic and ignorring if it is on or off. I hope this makes sense. It only happens on the laptop that I updated to 2004. My other computers are not showing me that I can download the update yet. This is very annoying when you are trying to get something done on your computer.

I fixed it but turning off scrolling on my touchpad and now it doesn't shrink up the screens I am using for the stupid Task View capability.

The touchpad (Synaptics) software on my laptop with default settings initiates Task View if it detects swipe-up gesture using three fingers. It doesn't matter whether the Task View button is hidden or not.

I think there are good reasons for not updating to 2004. Although, I'd have to admit, I have always been cautious. Every release feels like a mystery box of some sort..you never quite now what awaits you next! I've had issues with a printer since I upgraded to 1909. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Maybe it will get magically fixed in 2004? We'll see..one day. :D

Maybe it would do Microsoft wonders if they looked back on their current stable OS at the time in the year that the build number happens to share and took a lesson from that time's book

I did two 2004 updates on 2 Dell Latitudes and they seem to work the same as they did before the update. So all is well with my two Dells, so far. One was maybe 6 years old as well.

Wha, wha, what? I read that three times and gave up to figure out what that means.
