    Everyone is seeing that.

    It is a known issue in 14905, as you would have known if you had read the Microsoft blog post about this new build before upgrading: Insider Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14905 for PC and Mobile - Windows 10 Forums

    Just blindly upgrading without first finding out about any known issues is not very clever. Screenshot from the announcement of build 14905:

    But that's the MS model isn't it - blind updating

    No, it's not.

    Not a single new build has been released without a blog post about known issues.

    The MS model is automatic update
    - the fact that Release notes exist is non-sequitor for non-commercial users

    Updates do not ask you to review the Release notes before updating - they just update your machine.

    What on earth are you talking about? Please check the facts and topic of the thread before posting. I'm talking about, and this thread is about apples, you are talking about oranges.

    We are not talking about Windows Updates here. Were are talking about Windows Insider build upgrades. They are not automatic and can never be compared to automatic updates; each user can turn Insider upgrades off or switch to slow or release ring after a successful build upgrade thus not receiving next build automatically, then read the release notes when a new build is released and only then decide if he / she wants that build or not.

    User's choice, not automatic. Even if in Fast Ring, a downloaded upgrade does not have to be installed.

    The sentence from my first post in this thread which you criticized quoted:

    Where in that sentence do I mention Windows updates?

    Windows as a service makes updates and upgrades indistinguishable - let's not argue semantics.
    Windows 10 November Update
    Windows 10 Anniversary Update

    but Settings is defer Upgrades


    No criticism and not worth more time - even the thread starter dropped out of this thread .

    Yes, I agree, we both know you will never admit being wrong which makes this useless.

    Updates and Upgrades are not same. Windows Updates are automatic whereas build upgrades can be unselected, even downloaded upgrades don't have to be installed. A wise user never upgrades without checking the release notes first.

    For your information, you started this with a totally irrelevant post:

    Upgrades are not blind, they don't have to be downloaded and installed if user does not want them after checking the release notes. It is totally possible never to download an Insider upgrade build, or skip a few builds and when release notes say no known issues opt back in and so on.

    This thread was done after OP's post and my reply in post #2 from which BTW the OP gave me rep.

    Your effort to be clever started then this unnecessary conversation in post #3.
