Windows 10 version 2004 update KB4571744 with massive list of fixes released

Microsoft released KB4571744 for Windows 10 version 2004 as a preview. The fixes will be integrated in the cumulative update for Windows 10 version 2004 that Microsoft will release this September.

The update is beta and designed for testing purposes, and for Microsoft to receive Telemetry data from systems the update is installed on to fix last minute issues that the company's automated systems detect.

Administrators need to go to Settings > Update & Security, and click on the optional updates link on the page that opens, and on the next page on "other updates" to display the preview update. Long gone are the times in which these preview updates were pushed directly to systems when administrators activated the check for updates button.

      I can confirm it works fine now. The date at which the last trim was done is recorded.

    Sheesh, what a massive list of bugs…I mean fixes. They realize if/when these bugs occur the user doesn’t know what’s causing them, so runs around trying all sorts of other fixes like a chicken with its head cut off. ‘blurry screen’….’applications won’t close’…’prevented resizing windows’ etc. Then find out it might be Win2004 bugs. What a lunacy.

    So is Win10 vers.2004 now debugged enough to adopt?

      That is a long list!

      Wednesday I went ahead with the 2004 install. I used the .iso file and Daemon Tools Lite for installation.

      The upgrade changed a few simple things like removing “copy to,” “move to,” “Take Ownership” from the Context Menu, but I use the UWT to put it all back.

      I haven’t really noticed any major problems; had to change a couple of default apps.

      So I guess for now I’m good.

      Install on laptop and desktop.

        Yikes…you know that Win 10 can natively mount .ISOs? Just right click, “Open with Windows Explorer”. One of the best features of Win10. No need for Demon tools, PowerIso etc….

      That’s for you to decide. I’ve been using 2004 since ISOs got published and don’t have any issues with this build.
      But to be fair I always update my Windows whenever ISOs get released and I never had any issues worth mentioning with Windows updates.

      I did install version 2004 on a HP laptop and HP desktop and it runs without any problems here. The only thing is the update took a long time to download and install, about two hours, with several restarts.

      seems a common issue: https://www.tenforums.com/windows-10-news/157138-known-resolved-issues-windows-10-may-2020-update-version-2004-a.html

    well Martin at least with KB4571744, the MS defrag app now remembers its previous defrag status after a reboot instead of forgetting it

    A few more updates and maybe Windows 10 might be ready for release.

    I installed this on my 6 computers right away because Windows 10 can’t get any worse. It needs every update and it needs them faster than fast. I don’t care if they’re good or not, hand them over! Nothing exploded, my files are intact, internet works. Life is good.

      Same here, except I have 25 Windows 10 computers. With that many computers, I’m hoping I’ll have at least one working computer after this update.

    Does this update bring back the classic file explorer seach like 1903?
    If not, is there any way to enable it?

    Windows 8.1 never seems to have these problems.

    upgraded to win 10 ver. 2004 and have a TON of issues. Even did a rese to no avail. Takes my very fast (was) machine from 45 sec. to boot to 6 minutes. After I finally can get online I run task manager and my memory stays “pinned” at 100% for very long time. Called my computer geek and he knew my issue before I even told him that my memory usage was “stuck” at 100% even when I am doing NOTHING on my machine. He said his shop is doing 2 machines a day with this same issue and others. He said solution to fix my 1 week old update was to update again to version 20H2. spoke to a Microsoft agent who said he would transfer me to an “expert” on this issue and was on hold for over an hour and hung-up. What customer service. They force updates on users that don’t work and then they are gone. BTW Mcrosoft case # is 1012749459. Looked online for this symptom and did not see my issue described as I just described it, but see a massive number of errors and no solutions. I want a Microsoft tech service person to call me and tell me if my issues can be done with remote access to my laptop as I have read 20H2 upgrade has issues of it’s own. Wish I had bought an Apple…..
