Windows 7 officially reached the end-of-support deadline on January 14 and KB4534310 is the final update for the OS. After more than a week it shipped the update, Microsoft admitted that the final update indeed has a bug that breaks down the desktop wallpaper.

Previously, Microsoft said that the hotfix will be shipped to the organizations who are paying for Windows 7’s extended support. In a surprising move, Microsoft has today updated the release notes of KB4534310, adding that the fix will be released to everyone including the consumers and enterprises.

Microsoft has decided to roll out the update to everyone after the backlash from consumers on social media. Users and enterprises weren’t happy that the final update Windows 7 breaks down a key feature and they have to pay Microsoft for the fix.

“We are working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release, which will be released to all customers running Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1,” the updated announcement reads.

Microsoft previously said that the hotfix will be released to Windows 7 paid customers by mid-February, but it’s not clear when a home user still running Windows 7 on their system will get the fix.

According to Microsoft, Windows 7 KB4534310 has a bug that breaks down personalization settings. If you install the update and the wallpaper mode is set to Stretch, the desktop wallpaper turns into a black background. This affects all editions of Windows 7 and we were able to reproduce the bug on our devices.

Until the update arrives, Microsoft says you can fix the black wallpaper bug on Windows 7 by using any other mode than Stretch. If you switch to Fit, Fill, or Center, and reboot the system, the wallpaper of your choice will apply to the desktop.

Windows 7 could theoretically get a fix on February 11 when Microsoft will be delivering Patch Tuesday updates.
