  1. Update to 1903 causes start menu and explorer issues


    Greetings,

    I ran the update to bring my system up to version 1903 last night. As a result when windows starts I just get an empty screen - I do not see the start bar, I can not see any desktop icons, when I press the windows key nothing happens. I CAN access the task manager through control-alt-delete.

    my system:
    Dell xps 15 9550
    windows 10 home 1903
    10.0.18362

    thanks for any help!

    :)

    Annoying issue with tiles in Start Menu in 1903


    Hi, I've recently updated to 1903 from 1809 and now I've found an annoying issue with tiles in Start Menu that I didn't have before in 1809:


    Update to 1903 causes start menu and explorer issues [​IMG]


    I can't move those tiles up like I had before. I've tried reseting Start Menu layout to default with a .reg file and I've tried solving Start Menu problems with the Microsoft Start Menu fixing tool. Nothing works. Any suggestions?

  3. Local profile issue after upgrading to 1903


    Hi roblinb

    Not listed in the Known.

    Known issues for Windows 10 May 2019 Update version 1903


    As far as Wifi any chance it is Qualcom inside USB adapter, if Qualcom then yes known issue.


    I might create another user (Local) and when if try again see if this issue occurs on both users.

    Would also suggest you run the first 5 steps in this tutorial to see if you have any corruption with current build.

    Use DISM to Repair Windows 10 Image
