WINDOWS 10 2004 UPDATE, Many Problems and ERRORS

Copper Contributor

I just registered today, on this site, just for me to be able to rant and ask for help. So, when I upgraded to the November 2019 updated, it broke my search capabilities, and many windows errors happened. So I did not revert back, cause I was like waiting for them to update to a new one and probably fix the many errors after few months, but then I heard of news for May 2020 update, and goodness grief, I ordered a new SSD, so I can install the new update, and make my computer faster. I waited for May 2020 update so it could fix my search problem, until I updated using May 2020 ISO clean installer. But there had been so many errors. I have updated all my drivers and make sure windows update are updated but here are the problems:

1. No matter what, I cannot sign in on my STICKY NOTES. Where my important notes are written, because they are saved on cloud and not on my pc. but how can I access them now if signing in is impossible.


2. Keep On Top, some application stays on top, for example I pressed certain file explorer and it won't keep on top of notepad. Sometimes I click notepad, and it won't go on top of a file explorer. I can hold and drag, but it won't go on top like normal.

3. SOUND IS BROKEN. While I was moving my files on May 28, cause I finally have downloaded the ISO from Microsoft site, I was listening to music, and my left and right sound of my earphone work well. Until I format my laptop, installed the new ISO, and then the sound, is broken. No matter how hard I try to adjust my earphone's input, only the right ear has sound, and the left has very soft sound. I plugged it to other laptop and it works, and plugged it on my phone and it works. You have broken my sound/music listening experience.


4. IRRESPONSIVENESS, LAGGING, STUCK. there are moments I'm using file explorer, chrome application, microsoft edge, that I tried to click, but it won't respond at all, it won't do anything, it won't allow me to do much, not resize, not click anything, but I have to wait for mercy. It's not happening before in previous windows update, I can easily kill anything not responding, but even trying to open control alt delete option won't show, let alone trying to make something resize or whatsoever, they happen multiple times on different application.


5. When you pin an application on Windows Start Menu, the "Pin To Start" doesn't change to "Unpin From Start" so you have no Idea, if you have successfully pinned something or not, just a little thing but bugs me, so I have to check on Start Menu to know if it is really indeed pinned or not. Even you click many times, the Pin To Start will not change to Unpin From Start.

6. I TOLD MYSELF, THE NOVEMBER 2019 UPDATE WAS THE BIGGEST MISTAKE I MADE, AND i will never update again, but lo and behold, I updated, and the MAY 2020 update tops the November.


7. Please fix this, I need all things fixed. I hope someday you have patches to release, that will break again my laptop/OS, so I can be joyful that you guys are good at breaking things. Nah, just kidding, just please fix these things for me, cause I waited for years for this update to come, only to see it will break even more my desktop work experience.

Hello @kalxn,


I recommend you to please submit these issues to Windows engineering team via Feedback hub app, so they gets to the right team, which could fix them via upcoming updates.  


Good luck!

@KapilArya How exactly would one do that ? I'm having mega problems to the point where I may just have to scrap my trusted 3 year install. (lots of work and data on it as well:sad:)

@CmonStoke Press Start Button, or key, and then, type feedback hub, and an app will show, click that, and you can submit from there.
