    Seems that the issue of not being able to ad Gmail accounts to the mail app has been resolved, at least for me.

    So no more "...… something went wrong …… error. ……. 0x8000000b...… "

    Thanks Bill !

    Upgraded two Dell XPS 8700 desktops successfully but on one the multiboot menu no longer works and on the other several ites were removed. Good thing I had a BCD backup.

    Update: Restored the previous build from a Macrium image and upgraded again using the MCT and not the Upgrade Assistant and the multiboot menu was fine. I should have known better than to use the Upgrade Assistant.

    Windows Spotlight is still a bit goofy on my system. Image changes between 6 hours and 2 days just like in 1803. And, a new minor glitch -- if I hit the 'not a fan' in the upper right, instead of a new picture, I get the one from the day before and then it changes to a new one. At least it's not stuck.

    Drag and drop of a file from a zipped folder fails to replace a file of the same name in the target directory and gives no indication of the conflict or failure.

    Microsoft earlier this week released Windows 10 October 2018 (version 1809) update. You can either get it through Windows Update, and install it leaving your personal files and settings largely unchanged, or perform a clean install by making yourself an install media using Microsoft's Media Creation Tool. PC Watch noticed something curious about getting the new Windows version through Windows Update on their notebook. The process was sapping too much power from the battery, and the update process is interrupted by an incompatible driver dialog (screenshot below).

    Intel processors running with Gen 9.5 iGPUs enabled (that's 6th generation "Skylake" or later), expose an integrated audio controller to the operating system. This controller is responsible for digital audio output through the iGPU's HDMI and DisplayPort connectors, and is similar to the one NVIDIA and AMD integrate with their discrete GPUs. Users with driver version or older for this controller, could run into problems when Windows Update is re-loading the drivers as part of the upgrade process. Intel has since released driver version part of the latest Graphics Drivers If you're still on Windows 10 version 1803 and use your iGPU, it's recommended that you update your Intel graphics drivers before initiating Windows Update to version 1809.

    What about laptops with custom drivers?

    Hope the OEM releases a new driver version so you don't have to use the generic ones from Intel.

    Unfortunately I just see many users falling at this step. It's no mean feat to force override Windows deciding you want the customised, dated OEM ones.
