Windows 10 Version 2004 Continues Creeping Towards Release

Posted on February 28, 2020 by Paul Thurrott in Windows 10 with 7 Comments

Microsoft completed developing new features for Windows 10 version 2004 back in December, but it’s been updating the code with quality updates ever since. On Thursday evening, Microsoft released the third such update and pushed version 2004 into the Windows Insider Slow ring, another milestone on the way to its pending public release.

“We’re releasing [Windows 10] 20H1 Build 19041.113 (KB4540409) to Windows Insiders in the Slow ring,” the Microsoft announcement notes. “This Cumulative Update [sic] includes [only] quality improvements.”

Those improvements include such minor matters as updating the copyright date to the year 2020, and fixing some connectivity issues that are specific to the Surface Pro X and related to sign-in and sign-out. Nothing major, basically.

This week’s update is at least the third cumulative update that Microsoft has issued since the product was finalized in late 2019. Previous CUs were released in mid-January and mid-February. And earlier this week, Microsoft released the ISOs for Windows 10 version 2004.

      I'm not experiencing that problem with build 19041.113 on some of my PCs that have this build (an old Dell Inspiron 2007 laptop and a custom built desktop PC with a Gigabyte board).

      again I ask you want kind of computer do you use?

        X299 board with Cascade Lake X. I have talked to other people, some people do have problems some do not, there is really no specific hardware combo causing this whether is new AMD/Intel CPU, AMD/Nvidia video card. It really could be down to just display drivers. We shall see.

          better but that's still NOT good enough. there are several different motherboard makers who make X299 boards. what BRAND is that X299 board?

          maybe install updated graphics drivers or even disable "fast startup"

          I immediately turn off fast startup or "fast boot/quick boot" on all my PCs running any Win10 version
