fix KB4495667 font bugs

Microsoft recently acknowledged that KB4495667 may sometimes trigger various Excel issues.

The company says that some fonts can affect the layout of documents created in Microsoft Excel after the installation of the update.

When using the MS UI Gothic or MS PGothic fonts, the text, layout, or cell size may become narrower or wider than expected in Microsoft Excel. For example, the layout and cell size of Microsoft Excel sheets may change when using MS UI Gothic.

The tech giant recently release the May 2019 Patch Tuesday updates fixing this problem. If you don’t want to download the latest Windows 10 updates, Microsoft suggests there are two options to get rid of this issue.

You can either uninstall the recently installed optional updates or use a switch to a different Japanese font like MS Mincho or Yu Gothic.

As a quick reminder, Microsoft didn’t release any new features in Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB4495667. However, the update came with a series of performance enhancements and bug fixes.

Windows 10 finally overtakes Windows 7

As we reported earlier, the latest statistics released by NetMarketShare prove that the popularity of Windows 10 is increasing now.

The market share of the OS is increasing as more and more Windows 7 users are upgrading their machines.

Some recent reports suggest that around 825 million active devices are currently using Windows 10. Microsoft is very close to hitting the 1 billion user mark.

Microsoft announced that it would no longer provide official support and security updates to Windows 7 users beyond January 14, 2020. Hence, the Windows 10 user base is expected to increase by the end of this year.
