Windows 10 May 2019 user reported bugs

Microsoft  recently rolled out Windows 10 version 1903 (aka May 2019 Update) to the general public. This feature update brings some exciting new features for you.

Some of these include a new light theme, an improved Windows sandbox feature, and more. The company even decoupled Windows Search and Cortana.

Microsoft announced a new Windows Health Dashboard that came along with this release. This dashboard informs users about the update rollout status as well as known issues.

Microsoft is completely depended upon Windows Insiders to extensively test their new OS versions. Unfortunately, the company didn’t fix all the reported issues.

It seems like Microsoft may have to spend this summer fixing the long list of bugs reported by users.

Apart from these bugs, we can’t deny the fact that this release fixed some major issues as well. For example, this Reddit user stated that Windows 10 May 2019 updated fixed the following issues:

This update fixed some major bugs for my PC. 1.Previously versions of win in task manager always showed me wrong mhz memory speed (1333mhz) now its right 2.

And performance is waay better now Im happy.
