    Microsoft warns Windows 10 KB5015878 (July) could break notification area


    A bug in Windows 10 KB5015878 (July 2022 optional update) affects the notification area which typically appears in the taskbar. As a result, some users may be unable to switch the input method or language as the notification area bug blocks the language and input bars in the taskbar.

    KB5015878 is an optional update that won’t download or install automatically on your device unless you manually check for updates, and click on the “Download & Install” button below the clearly worded “optional updates” section.​

    Windows 10 July 2022 optional update comes with a couple of new features. For example, you can now receive important notifications when focus assist is on. For those unaware, Focus Assist is a feature similar to “Do not disturb mode” on your Android or iOS device, and it hides annoying notifications when you want to stay focused.

    Another new addition is specifically aimed at enterprise customers. Microsoft noted that it has enabled “restores functionality” for Windows Autopilot deployment scenarios. Likewise, the update also improved the OS upgrade experience. Microsoft also fixed an issue that causes consecutive video clip playback to fail in games.

    Microsoft acknowledges a new bug in Windows 10 July 2022 update


    In some cases, the update is causing more trouble for users.

    In the updated support document, Microsoft noted that Input Indicator and Language Bar might not appear in the notification area. The bug has also been reported in the mandatory Windows 10 KB5015807 update, but it doesn’t appear to be widespread.

    Thankfully, Microsoft is aware of the reports and it has already started pushing an emergency update that resolves issues with the taskbar notification area.

    According to Microsoft, it only affects devices that have more than one language pack installed, and it’s particularly hitting the ‘switcher’ feature of the notification area that lets you quickly toggle between input or keyboard languages.

    This has been fixed in a server-side update that simply turns off the code change causing the issue. Since it’s a server-side update, it may take up to 24 hours to propagate automatically to your devices, but you can always restart the device to apply the fix to your device faster.

    Enterprise customers can also manually configure a special Group Policy in Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates to deploy the fix. As always, you can also directly download the patch from Microsoft’s website.

    Other issues in KB5015878


    Remember that KB5015878 is an optional update and it may cause other issues for some folks as well. For example, users have reported that the July 2022 optional update fails to install on their devices with a vague error message.

    Startup and Notification area

    R]I ran this batch file, but it did not help (which I understand, because Task Manager > Processes does NOT show WinDates).

    I am back to the conclusion that Win 10 can run WinDates manually, but not automatically at startup (via link). If I double-click on the link C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\WinDates.lnk, WinDates opens fine.

    My next step will be to run a scan of system files to see if something is corrupt. However, any other suggestions are welcome.

    windows 10 update KB5015878

    Hi,

    I am having a problem with a windows 10 update, it is that the update KB5015878 keeps failing and reinstalling.

    I have tried numerous solutions to try to fix it, such as clearing the SoftwareDistribution directory, setting certain windows 10 features on or off but it keeps trying to reinstall and then fails when the machine reboots and attempts to finish the update.

    Also I cannot find any information in Microsoft or a on Google about update KB5015878 and I am wondering if it is a real update?

    I am very grateful for any suggestions or help

    Regards

    Tom
