[German]Microsoft has released the update KB4533028 for Windows 10 Version 2004 (20H1 development branch, see Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19033 (20H1) in Slow and Fast Ring – will be Windows 10 Version 2004) for insiders on December 4, 2019. This cumulative update raises the build to 19035.1000. Within the announcement of this build, Microsoft informed use also about some other changes. They say that the Notepad store app dies, for instance. The cumulative update is used, according to the Windows blog, to test the ‘Service Pipeline’. Microsoft’s blog post contains several interesting changes and messages.
Notepad store app died
In 2015 Terry Myerson announced, that Windows editor Notepad shall be moved to Microsoft store and will be available as an app. Since then, a Notepad app has been available (also in Insider Previews). Now Microsoft pulls the blog and says in the Windows-Blog:
So this experiment comes to an nasty end. Notepad will remain as an Win32 executable, as we know it from the first Windows versions onwards.
Driver update option removed
I hadn’t mentioned within the blog, but Microsoft has also experimented in 20H1 Insider Preview-Builds with a new option Optional Updates in Windows Update settings. Now Microsoft has removed that option:
Currently it’s till unclear to me, if this plan to allow users to control driver update delivery in Windows Update has also died finally. Anyway, Microsoft seems to be heading to complete Windows 10 20H1 developement.
