The Windows 10 April Update just got a new patch: KB4284848. This cumulative update focuses on fixing a series of video streaming issues affecting the OS, as well as Remote Desktop connection bugs. Without further ado, let’s dive in and see what’s new in KB4284848.

Many users reported that the Video Settings HDR streaming calibration slider often stopped working. This problem is caused by a conflict with the panel brightness intensity settings configured by certain OEMs. The good news is that update KB4284848 finally fixed this annoying problem. This patch also addresses streaming compatibility issues with certain live TV streaming content providers.

As we already mentioned, KB4284848 also fixes the issue affecting the Remote Desktop client in which pop-up windows and drop-down menus don’t appear and right-clicking doesn’t work properly. The patch also fixes Remote Desktop connection failures specific for a proxy that has multiple entries. If the Remote Desktop connection problems persist after installing this update, you can find a list of useful solutions in this troubleshooting guide.

Update KB4284848 changelog

  • Users should no longer receive the error message ‘An invalid argument was supplied”‘ when accessing files or running programs from a shared folder using the SMBv1 protocol.
  • The update also addresses Windows Mixed Reality performance issues on some laptops with hybrid graphics adapters (Surface Book 2).
