    KB4541335 caused a desktop display problem?


    I just had a baffling experience, thus the title stated as a question

    On 3/24/20 I installed KB4541335, the 2020-Cumulative Update and

    it installed and worked fine...

    Then, the last day or two, whenever I opened an application the desktop world disappear

    Desktop was still there, Rt-click on Taskbar & Show Desktop brought it back

    I first noticed it after exiting web browser that had been full screen (Opera)

    So, put on my troubleshooting cap

    First I uninstalled the last update (KB4541335) and everything now worked. Tested it and desktop stayed showing even with complex server logon boxes

    So, liking pain, I re-installed KB4541335 and this time the desktop worked normally

    So, faulty update or maybe something broke after a few days ?

    I updated 4 days ago and it started messing up yesterday

    Really hate intermittent problems, if that's what this is

    BTW, my PC is configured lean & mean for gaming using Only native Windows control panels

    That is why it is Optional. It is a D release so IT personnel can check it out before Update Tuesday which will get the same fixes. I will wait for Update Tuesday.

    Thanks for the quick reply

    So, the problem is me. Mucking about with pre-release updates

    Didn't know that. Update Tuesday is the second Tuesday?

    Update on "Beta" KB4541335, the 2020-Cumulative Update

    It broke again. desktop gone

    So, I uninstalled it and will wait for the official release

    One feature Of Windows 10 I really appreciate, no re-booting into "safe" mode to uninstall a defective update

    For sure. MS has enough things to fix.

    Take care and stay safe.
