New Weather and News update for Windows 10 October 2020 with the latest version of the Insider Program

Microsoft has released a new version for Windows 10 in the 20H2 branch. A release that is numbered 19042.962 with the KB5001391 patch for users who are part of the beta channel and preview. After going through other more advanced channels, this Build has, among other improvements, access to news and weather in the status bar.

This is an improvement that members of the Development Channel had already been able to test, although in the beginning, in this compilation, it caused a high consumption of resources. Now, the new shortcut is for insiders using Windows 10 October 2020 Update.

Changes and Improvements

Microsoft allows the new access to news and weather feeds from the Windows 10 taskbar to the beta and release preview channels. Fixed an issue that prevented a site from not using Microsoft Edge IE mode as expected. Fixed an issue that did not completely remove mandatory profiles when logging out when using the “Delete cached copies of roaming profiles” Group Policy. Fixed a bug that caused blank thumbnails to appear in the Start menu with names like “ms-resource: AppName” or “ms-resource: appDisplayName”. These blank tiles represent installed applications and appear for approximately 15 minutes after upgrading to a newer version of Windows 10. Installing this update prevents these blank tiles from appearing on the Start menu. Fixed an issue with Microsoft’s Japanese Input Method Editor (IME) that prevented an application’s custom application window from displaying correctly. Fixed a crash when installing inventory apps. Addresses an issue that includes kernel mode rules for .NET applications in Windows Defender application control policies. As a result, the policies generated are much more important than necessary. Addresses an issue that turns off Safe Mode when you enable System Guard Secure Launch on a device running Windows 10 in S mode. Fixes crash with lsass.exe memory usage increasing until the system becomes unusable. Fixed an issue that caused Azure Active Directory authentication to fail after logging into Windows Virtual Desktop machines. Fixed an issue that caused AAD work accounts to unexpectedly disappear from certain apps such as Microsoft Teams or Microsoft Office. Fixed an issue with a partial service connection point (SCP) configuration that prevented dsregcmd.exe from working. This issue occurs because of a case-sensitive domain name comparison that occurs when joining a hybrid Azure Active Directory domain using single sign-on (SSO). Fixed an issue that accidentally enables AAD Hybrid Junction when the “Register domain joined computers as devices” Group Policy is set to OFF. For more information, see Post-configuration tasks for Azure AD hybrid join. Added the ability to adjust the amount of idle time before a headset goes to sleep in the Settings app for Windows Mixed Reality. Fixed an issue that could cause a stop error when Docker containers were running in the sandbox. Addresses an issue that caused automatic enrollment and certificate retrieval to fail with the error “The setting is incorrect”. Fixed an issue that could prevent Microsoft Defender Application Guard virtual machines from responding when Microsoft Defender Application Guard for Office opened a document. This problem can occur on some devices or drivers that use GPU hardware accelerated programming. Addresses an issue that prevents some media players from playing content on hybrid devices running dGPU on iGPU displays. Fixed an issue that resulted in high CPU usage. As a result, the system stops working and crashes occur. Fixes a deadlock issue in the New Technology File System (NTFS). Fixed an issue that prevented DWM.exe from working in some cases. Addresses an issue that could prevent an application screen from functioning when using a Remote Desktop ActiveX control embedded in an HTML page. Windows Server Storage Migration Service has been enhanced by: resolving various issues and improving reliability.

If you are in the Beta or Release Preview Channel version of the Insider program, you can download the update by following the usual route, ie “Settings> Update & Security> Windows Update”.
