According to the source, the new Windows 10 update with the build number KB4559309 disrupted the normal operation of computers. The boot takes longer than usual and there is a slow down already in the OS itself. Both regular applications and web pages load longer. The problem is that KB4559309 is installed automatically, and Microsoft itself has not yet figured out exactly what the problem is.
Since the update is related to Edge, the browser development team is working on the problems caused by its installation. In the meantime, the solution to the problem is to manually remove KB4559309 update from the system.
Windows 10 turns 5 years old with over one billion user
On July 29, 2020, Windows 10 turned 5 years old. This operating system was released in mid-2015 and was offered as a free upgrade to Windows 7 and Windows 8 users. Using this trick, Microsoft hoped to very quickly increase the number of active users of the new OS at that time – up to 1 billion in 2-3 years! But, it did not work out. Microsoft reached the coveted billion only this year.
Microsoft also failed with the voice assistant Cortana. Moving from the already forgotten Windows Phone mobile platform, it was supposed to seriously compete with Apple’s Siri and Google Assistant. In fact, the system did not take root on the PC platform, including due to Microsoft’s too zealous attempts to impose it on users, for example, by adding Cortana to the Start menu search bar.
But with the Edge browser, everything is not so bad. After switching to the Chromium engine, it really began to gain popularity, albeit slowly.
Windows 10 updates
With Windows 10 updates, everything is also somehow not good. As an example of the October 2018 update is fresh in mind, the distribution of which even had to be stopped due to the large number of bugs and problems that it caused. The current May one did not go smoothly either. In general, Microsoft is going to change its strategy and update Windows 10 not twice a year, but only once. It is hoped that such updates will be tested more thoroughly, and the problems caused by their installation will decrease.
As for Windows 11, Microsoft will just keep updating Windows 10 all the time. So the current OS will clearly live to see its decade. Well, next year Microsoft should release Windows 10X – a version designed specifically for laptops and mobile computers with two screens. But is it going to be a hit? We will see.
