Share your current (or past if they’re good) update road bumps you’ve encountered with Windows below.

  1. My Yoga tried to download & install the big update twice. On the second go, download and install only took about two minutes, so it was most likely confused. Aside from that, losing the kb sound on my touch devices has been my biggest gripe. Oh, and on my office desktop, it’s much more difficult to view open apps when I move my mouse to the top left corner. Have to slam the pointer in the corner multiple times to see the list of apps. Almost as if Microsoft is encouraging me to use the task bar with a Modern app open, which just does not seem natural for me.
