    Add another issue which is going to keep 20H2 off my PCs:
    Task Manager - Startup tabs does not update after a power up after installing 20H2 on my PC. The same stale data will be present after every power on. It works fine before 20H2 and after I uninstalled the 20H2 Enablement KB.

    This is an issue which @f14tomcat has apparently made aware to M$ weeks, if not months ago.

    Great... the conexant audio issue is not fixed with this update either, so I'm stuck on 1909 for the forseeable on this machine.

    I would call installing the update over & over a bug.

    I had to uninstall it because WU would keep searching for the update and reinstall it over & over & over.

    I then needed to run Shawns Reset_Reregister_Windows_Update_Components.bat to fix windows update after.

    Seems like you would be better off to install the 20H2 version available rather than going though all of that. Make sure you backup all personal items and then do a fresh install. It is available here: How to get the Windows 10 October 2020 Update version 20H2

    No, I would not be better doing that.
    It's better I catch this now, give feedback, before they do roll this out to billions of devices, and screw up all the machines.

    Here are two huge 20H2 issues.

    1) It has completely eliminated ability to use Legacy Edge.

    2) You cannot directly do a repair upgrade and keep anything. There is a workaround i.e. you have to remove the enablement update from old program and features menus. It is not shown in windows updates.

    #2 is disturbing to me. Do you happen to have any reference links to confirm this. Sorry if I'm asking a dumb question but I've had to do repair upgrades with 2004 several times recently in the last few weeks.

    I too, would like to see some proof of this. As far as I understand it, the Enablement package is purely to "enable" things in v2004 only, that are already there, but un-activated. I used the enablement package this morning, and it was only about 80MB.

    80MB sounds to me like, it just enabled things in v2004. The Oct 2020 monthly update was 300+MB by comparison.
