Microsoft users faced quite a tough Windows 10 version 1903 update as they encountered five update bugs in a row. What does Microsoft have to say about the issues?

High CPU Usage

After the August 30 release of the KB4512941 update, complains surfaced the internet that the Cortana process SearchUI.exe caused an abnormal increase in their device’s CPU usage. Ten days later, Microsoft released a statement that it has fixed the Windows 10 version 1903 update Cortana CPU spike bug.

Screenshots Orange Tint, Orange and Red Screen

Lenovo users started complaining about their screens turning orange or red after while in some cases screenshots having an unnatural orange tine after their Windows 10 version 1903 update. The problem later turned out to be because of the Lenovo Vantage’s Eye Care Mode.

Microsoft suggested their Windows 10 users refrain from updating to prevent the said problem. Lenovo on the other hand, suggested their users to temporarily turn off the Eye Care Mode which is originally designed to lower the blue light from LEDs.

Lower Game Volume

The Windows 10 version 1903 update resulted in an unsatisfying volume to hardcore gamers as game audio went lower than the usual. Multiplayer games such as PUBG felt the change the most.

Microsoft claimed that as per some of their audio partner’s request, they have implemented a compatibility change that the company is now reverting due to their customers’ feedback. The software giant added that this was also because multi-channel audio rendering is not available to some devices.

Wi-Fi Compatibility Issues on NEC

NEC PCs equipped with Intel Centrino 6205/6235 and Broadcom 802.11ac Wi-Fi cards showed a yellow exclamation point in the Device Manager after the Windows 10 version 1903 update. The loss of Wi-Fi connectivity then followed.

Microsoft responded with the issue saying that a resolution with NEC is in process. Meanwhile, disabling and re-enabling the Wi-Fi adapter might help.

Start Menu and Windows Desktop Search Issues

On a small number of devices, the Windows 10 version 1903 update stopped the Start Menu from working and caused the Windows Desktop Search to display a blank. Microsoft suspects that since there is a small number of affected users, this could be due to a third party software or hardware.

As of the moment, the safest thing to do is to wait for a few months before updating to the Microsoft Windows 10 version 1903.
