Give the new Windows 10 update a try if you’ve these critical issues

Windows 10 optional patch

This month’s optional cumulative update is now available for
Windows 10 version 20H2 / 2004 and you can give it a try if
your device has been crashing frequently or if you’ve issues
with games and browsers.

A new
Windows 10 update titled ‘KB4598291’ is rolling out to fix
issues with fullscreen games, system crashes, performance
issues, and a bug that breaks the authentication process in web
browsers.

In the detailed changelog, Microsoft confirmed that it has
finally fixed an issue where users might get logged out of
their accounts on every system reboot. This problem was first
reported and acknowledged in April 2020, and it’s finally
getting fixed in the latest batch of optional updates.

For those wondering,
Windows 10’s built-in password manager gone seriously wonky
after the release of May 2020 Update, with web browsers and
Microsoft apps not able to remember the passwords saved by the
users. As a result, users were getting logged out of their apps
or websites.

At this point, users have struggled with the frustrating
problems for several months now, but Microsoft’s Erica Lawrence
has confirmed that the patch has
finally fixed the issue.

Game crashes

As confirmed by Microsoft, it seems that some Windows 10
installations have a critical bug causing crashes and other
performance issues when playing games in the fullscreen or when
the device is using tablet mode.

It seems to be a rare issue, but it has been critical enough to
raise some alarm among the Windows development community.

“Fixes an issue that causes a device to stop responding when
you play a game in full-screen or tablet mode,” Microsoft noted
in the changelog.

Multitasking

Microsoft has finally fixed an issue in Windows 10 version 20H2
‘October 2020 Update’ where the option “Windows Only” wasn’t
working when using Alt-Tab apps switcher.

In Windows 10 version 20H2 or newer, you can see multiple Edge
tabs listed in the task switcher, so you can more easily switch
between apps and browser tabs.

By default, Windows 10 is now configured to show five Edge
tabs, but users have reported a weird bug where
Alt-Tab switcher won’t remember the order of the apps and
it will open incorrect app window.

How to get the patch

The update is ‘optional’ and you need to manually check for
updates to get KB4598291. Or you can also skip the update for
now and install the Patch Tuesday update instead, which is
scheduled to arrive on February 9 with all these fixes.
