Microsoft has had one heck of a time fixing bugs in its last couple of Windows 10 variations. Many customers, myself included, stuck with version 1809 longer than we anticipated due to all of the bugs in version 1903 when it rolled out the previous year. One bug prevented customers from upgrading to version 1903 if that they had a USB device or SD card linked to their PC. Other bugs affected the Microsoft Game bar.

Most of that has been resolved, and version 1903 is now fairly steady, which is sweet since you most likely need to stick with it for now. Version 2004, which was launched at the end of May, has reintroduced a bunch of new bugs that seem like they’re not getting fixed any time quickly. One of these has damaged the Fresh Start function, which helps you to reinstall Windows 10 without shedding any of your private information. That characteristic is a greater choice than resetting Windows 10 again to factory default, as a result of it doesn’t reinstall bloatware that OEMs generally embody with their PCs.

Windows Insider users have been reporting the damaged Fresh Start characteristic to Microsoft for the last eight months, but Microsoft hasn’t publicly acknowledged the issue—it’s not listed on Microsoft’s website as a known issue.

To enter the Fresh Start function in version 2004, Windows 10 customers ought to go to Settings > Windows Security > Device Performance & Health. But according to Windows Insider customers, there isn’t any ‘get started’ button on the most recent model, simply the choice to click on on ‘additional info.’ Clicking on that opens up a webpage in regards to the Fresh Start characteristic. It looks as if the actual problem is the missing button, and the extra information hyperlink works as supposed, however, is including to the confusion. The Windows Update tab on my PC lists the version 2004 update, however, apparently my device is just not appropriate with the update in the meanwhile. According to a Windows blog, Microsoft is “initially limiting availability to…devices running Windows 10, versions 1903 and 1909 who seek the update via Windows Update,” but I have version 1903 and it’s unavailable for me. It’s not clear why my PC is incompatible with the update in the meantime.
But that’s OK—We don’t need it anyway. In addition to Fresh Start lacking its ‘get started’ button, different presently identified and unresolved points with version 2004 include: variable refresh fee not working as anticipated on gadgets with Intel iGPU; issue connecting to more than one Bluetooth device; cease error when plugging or unplugging a Thunderbolt dock; and a problem with older drivers for Nvidia display adapters (GPU).
Hopefully, Microsoft can sort out its issues so we will all update without worrying about annoying damaged features.
