Windows 10 May 2020 Update and June 2020 cumulative updates are causing a host of problems yet again, with users reporting several issues including problems with Google Chrome and desktop UI over the past few days.

Windows 10 May 2020 Update, also known as version 2004, has been in testing with Windows Insiders for around 15 months, but there are several issues in the update, many of which could break key features or prevent apps or drivers from working when you force the upgrade.

Microsoft last month outlined the issues with May 2020 Update in its support documentation, noting that each of these problems will be fixed or mitigated in a future cumulative update.

Microsoft initially acknowledged the following bugs:

   • Bluetooth connectivity problems

   • Audio driver issues

   • Blue Screen of Death due to thunderbolt dock

   • Nvidia, Realtek and Intel driver issues

According to reports, Windows 10 May 2020 Update and recent cumulative updates are plagued with the following issues

Chrome login

After installing June 2020 update for Windows 10 version 2004, users are reporting that certain apps such as Google Chrome lose their saved passwords, extensions, cookies, and credentials on every reboot.

For example, one user noted that the update is breaking the authentication mechanism, while others claim that their cookies and extensions are also reset to the default values.

Both Google and Microsoft are actively investigating the reports.

Optimize Drive broken

Many users have confirmed that Windows 10 May 2020 Update breaks down the Optimize Drive tool, which allows you to defrag your hard drives. After the update, users report that the legacy defragmentation tool does not record scans and it reports scan was never run on the hard drive.

Before and after a system reboot

Some users have also claimed that the Optimize Drive tool optimizes the SSD more often after the May Update.

Microsoft is planning to fix these issues later this year.

Storage Spaces

Microsoft has acknowledged widely reported Storage Spaces issues in Windows 10 version 2004. According to Microsoft, some users might face issues when trying to access Storage Spaces after installing May 2020 Update on their systems.

The bug affects some configurations and you’ll see ‘RAW” under the partition in the Disk Manager tool.

At the moment, Microsoft is not aware of any workaround and you should avoid upgrading to version 2004 if you use Storage Spaces.

Windows Update drivers loop

Many users are reporting that their computer is stuck in a driver update installation loop after upgrading to Windows 10 version 2004.

“Windows Update keeps trying to install an Intel Graphics Driver and keeps failing to say the better driver is already installed. And it still keeps retrying. Infinite loop,” one user reported.

Microsoft has yet to acknowledge reports of a driver bug causing installation loop. For now, it appears that you will need to pause Windows Updates until a fix is issued.

Breaks desktop

Users have also reported that Windows 10 June 2020 patch for version 2004 is forcing the tablet mode interface on the normal desktop.

According to reports spotted on Reddit and Microsoft’s own forum, Windows 10 bug forces tablet mode even when the feature is turned off.

As a result, the Search box would not appear on the taskbar and File Explorer will have more white space and gaps between icons or folders.
