Issues plague Windows 10 update

If you are thinking of not waiting for the notification and decided you want to get the latest feature update to Windows 10 [i.e. build 17134 or v1803 or Redstone 4 or April 2018 Update], you may wish to hold off for a bit.

There are a serious number of issues that are affecting some users.

Among them are: mouse problems, microphone problems, problems with Microsoft Office, problems with Cortana, problems with Edge and problems with Google’s Chrome browser. There may be others.

Microsoft says these issues will be fixed with the first big update coming this Tuesday [on Patch Tuesday]. There has already been two small updates since the release this past week.

Personally, I may wait at least two months. Windows 10 Pro editions allows delays of feature updates.

[Update 2018/05/10:] While the update for Patch Tuesday has supposedly fixed some issues, there are reports that some are getting a black screen for a lengthy amount of time after installing the update and rebooting.

Adding to the issues of the update [going from v1709 to v1803] are issues with Intel SSD 600P series and 600P Pro series. They could be others but these two series are known to have issues.

Another bug ids that you can’t upgrade if the installation detects an empty drive. Yup. As well, you got ALT+TAB is slow while gaming. Disabling all the options from Focus Assist seems to fix the issue.

Additionally NVIDIA GPU settings are unavailable and finally some audio settings may be lost. I have encountered the reset [or loss] of audio settings after every upgrade.
