Windows 10’s November 2019 Update, also known as version 1909,
is a service pack like-update with fixes and improvements, but
even the November 2019 Update isn’t perfect for many consumers.
Many people are seeing
annoying problems with File Explorer’s search box after
deploying Windows 10 November 2019 Update. Microsoft said that
November Update includes a new feature that adds online results
from services like OneDrive to File Explorer’s search box, and
it also enables suggestions in the search box.
Our findings revealed that Microsoft broke the File Explorer
when integrating its new search experience. After delaying the
patch for almost two months, Microsoft has finally shipped
Windows 10 KB4532695 with fix for all your File Explorer
and Control Panel issues.
In the changelog, Microsoft noted that January 28 update
addresses an issue that prevents File Explorer’s search bar
from receiving user input. Another bug has been resolved that
prevented everyone from pasting copied text into the search bar
with mouse’s right-click.
Microsoft’s Windows Insider team were aware of File Explorer
problems and they fixed it in beta Build 19013, which was
released on October 29, but Microsoft officially shipped
November 2019 Update with this bug on November 12, apparently
creating another mess.
Windows 10 update with File Explorer fix is currently rolling
out to seekers or those who manually check for updates and
select ‘Download and install now’ option. If you don’t want to
install this particular update, you can fix your File Explorer
issues with February Patch Tuesday release.
Current status of November 2019 Update
Windows 10 November 2019 Update is deliberately low-key with a
limited set of improvements rather than a boatload of new
features. Some people have described this release as a service
pack with small and subtle changes.
Microsoft is expected to release another
November 2019 Update-like service pack codenamed ’20H2′
later this year.
