Update failures for Window 10
Hi everyone Is anyone experiencing updates failures for 'cumulative updates for Windows 10 version 2004 for x64-based systems #KB4550936. This has failed four times or perhaps even five times. I have gone through the usual routes of trying troubleshooter - unsuccessful. When I have clicked on the support thread, I am taken to a landing page which indicates 'sorry page not found'. I have to think that this will be fixed. I would just like to understand what has failed and why. I am a curious person. Views anyone?
What do you think of Microsoft's UI Design?
Since Windows 8, Microsoft's taken the lead in pioneering modern UI design standards. The goal seems to be to make a cohesive touch-friendly UI across Windows, with an emphasis on flat, sharp elements and icons as well as tiles that have defined a lot of Microsoft's design language. With the inclusion of fluent design, subtle references to skeuomorphism, like lighting, highlights, and texture have been added back to Windows, without compromising any other modern design guidelines. These efforts are commendable, and demonstrates Microsoft's progressive design standards. However, the focus on mobile-friendly and touch-friendly interfaces has become concerning, especially since new designs have changed from a mobile-first to a mobile-only style. Large fonts and buttons, excessive padding, and limited customizability might be fine on mobile apps because mobile devices are limited, and more difficult to work with, but these same design elements are hostile and inefficient to mouse-and-keyboard users. If you compare Windows 10 apps to their Windows 7 counterparts, you can see that the newer apps take up more screen space while doing more or less the same function. This is a problem. A focus on Mobile-friendly design should not ever mean mouse-and-keyboard unfriendly, especially since this is the primary method of input on desktop computers. I was once especially fond of the Microsoft Office interface as an example of crisp, modern design that does not compromise mouse and keyboard usability. Most importantly, Office came with a "touch mode" and "mouse mode" option, creating the most optimal interface for each input method. However, the latest redesign of the Office ribbon seems to move further and further from these sensible design guidelines. The new simplified ribbon has no changes for mouse and touch mode, along with a host of other issues. I'm concerned over the direction of Microsoft's UI design, and I'd like to bring up these issues for consideration.
in place upgrade vs. reinstall
Sometimes, our devices may run into issues that doing the sfc /scannow command or creating a new user account, etc. will not fix the issues. Here are two popular methods to fix problems. 1) in place upgrade: What is an in place upgrade? It is basically reinstalling Windows while we get to keep our files, folders, settings, etc. It basically gives us a fresh couple of the Windows system files. Meaning, we might do the sfc /scannow command and it found corrupt system files that cannot be repaired. The in place upgrade will give us fresh system files. pros: We do not lose any files, folders, settings, etc. when choosing the in place upgrade. cons: When choosing this method, it will take a while to complete. It requires several restart of the device. If the device has a good CPU, etc., then it will be a little quicker but will still take time to complete. p.s. After the in place upgrade is finished, we might have to update few drivers again. Usually, the in place upgrade will revert the newer drivers to the previous ones. Remember, it will create Windows.old. That will take a lot of space. The best way is to go to storage under settings and Storage Sense to delete Windows.old. You can free up over 10GB of temporary files and can regain some C drive disk space. 2) reinstalling Windows 10: What this does is basically reinstalling Windows 10 again. Giving us a fresh start. pros: This method is usually quicker than the in place upgrade. cons: The cons of choosing this method is it wipes out everything. p.s. When choosing this method, I generally only wipe out the C drive but do not wipe out the D drive. If you want to choose this command, I suggest you to copy everything in the desktop or if you have put files, folders, etc. in the C drive to a portable drive. Also, download the bookmark from Edge, Chrome, etc. and save it to a portable drive. It is because after reinstallation of Windows 10, they will be gone.
When is the Inbuilt Support to Mirror iPhone to PC arriving?
Does anyone know if Microsoft has any plans to manage smartphones (iPhone, Android devices specifically) from PC ? I am talking about features like Mirroring your phone notifications to PC (Call, Text notifications etc.), Mirroring screen to PC etc. Currently, there are only third party apps that enable users to do that. But that comes at a cost.

Widows Update 2004 Problems 3 months OEM support+ no help
Problems with updating my Yoga C940-14IIL (Lenovo) from 1909 to 2004. Officially Lenovo premium support claims there should be no problems on there end for my device. Not driver related software etc. But i'm still stuck on the not device not ready screen. I Also tried to force the update like they instructed. Without being rude in my opinion there premium support is tier 1.5 at best. The conversation basically is them approving my suggestions or providing ridiculous extra information to them. Basically telling me which button i should click or explaining something in English i provided them by sending a screenshot etc. For example i ran the Intel driver support assistent and pointed out Intel has newer graphic wifi and Bluetooth drivers than the ones they provided. Asking if that might solve the issue but i pointed out Intel recommends OEM drivers not generic ones (It's in the screenshot). They replied its worth trying and that the lines i pointed out mean they are not officially tested. I'm thinking this is a bad joke or something i pointed it out and informed them and they reply with "might work and explain te words in a sentence i provided them" This is just one example out of dozens. Half of the suggestions or questions i made mentioned on the 2004 Official known issues/problems page (provided screenshots) they didn't understand i think. I attached the screenshot and even underlined the sentences i send them. Basically they told me to do the windows clean start or start over thing by holding a reset button (whatever it's called) . It's a brand new device with almost no software except for a single licensed office 2019 professional plus (not linked to a account) and mapped in my fairly complex new "secure"network and has things like SMB shares configured with my Linux and FreeBSD servers etc. It's also a wifi only device so it's on my IOT Vlan so it's a pain in the ... to setup again. Advice or answers would be appreciated before i do a clean install.
