Windows 10 May 2020 Update problems

Free up disk space

As with previous major updates for Windows 10, the May 2020 Update requires a certain amount of hard drive space to successfully download and install. If your main hard drive (where Windows 10 is installed, usually the C: drive), is almost full, then you'll encounter problems when trying to install Windows 10 May 2020 Update.

The May 2020 Update requires 32GB of free space on the hard drive where Windows 10 is installed.

So, the first thing you should do if the Windows 10 May 2020 Update install fails is to check your drive space in Windows Explorer. If it is running out of space, try typing in "Disk Clean-up" in the search box on the taskbar and select the system disk (usually the C: drive).

Windows 10 May 2020 Update is causing problems with OneDrive

We've seen reports that Windows 10 May 2020 Update is breaking OneDrive for some people.

OneDrive is Microsoft’s cloud backup tool which allows you to save files on the internet, and access them from any Windows 10 device as if they were stored locally. By storing your important files in OneDrive, the idea is that they are backed up and safe.

Some people are finding that they cannot access their files that are saved on their OneDrive account.

Others are also reporting they are getting an error message that says "OneDrive cannot connect to Windows”.

It seems there is a way to fix this problem, which is by resetting OneDrive.

To do this, press the Windows key + R on your keyboard to open the Run dialog window. Paste

%localappdata%\Microsoft\OneDrive\onedrive.exe /reset

into the text box, then press ‘OK’. Now try opening OneDrive.

For people who are getting the ‘OneDrive cannot connect to Windows’ error, you’re going to need to go into the Windows Registry. Be warned – you need to be really careful with editing the registry, as editing the wrong thing can break Windows 10 even more.

Type ‘Reg’ into the search bar (next to the Start menu) and select ‘Registry Editor’ when it appears. In the left-hand menu, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\CldFlt\Instances. You should see ‘DefaultInstance’ in the right-hand pane. Click it and change its value from CldFlt to CldFltUpper.

Apparently, Microsoft is aware of this problem (it should be, if it has indeed been knocking around for a while), and is working on a fix. Hopefully that won’t take too long to arrive.

Windows 10 May 2020 Update problems with Lenovo devices

Microsoft and Lenovo have acknowledged that the Windows 10 May 2020 Update is causing big problems for some Lenovo laptops and tablets.

Read on for Lenovo's official list of known issues and how to fix them.

Synaptics ThinkPad UltraNav driver issue

Lenovo has found that some of its devices are showing an error message that says “Failed to load Apoint.DLL, Alps Pointing device application has stopped” when users try to use the system recovery feature.

According to Lenovo, to fix the problem do the following:

  1. Open Device Manager.
  2. Expand ‘Mice and other pointing devices’.
  3. Select 'Think UltraNav device'.
  4. Right-click on it and update driver to the latest version. 
  5. Restart your computer.

Yellow warning mark on the disk drive

If you see a yellow warning mark on a disk drive that uses the BitLocker encryption tool in Windows 10 after installing the May 2020 update, then try the following steps: 

  1. Right-click on the disk drive. 
  2. Turn on Bitlocker and turn it off. 
  3. If you don’t use BitLocker, you can disable the feature from Settings > Update & Security > Device encryption. 

Movies & TV app green borders issue

Some people have been complaining that when watching videos in the Movies & TV app, a green border appears around the footage.

According to Lenovo, this is due to a compatibility issue with an old AMD graphic driver and the Windows 10 May 2020 Update.

To fix the issue, make sure your AMD graphics drivers are up to date.

F11 key not working after installing Windows 10 May 2020 Update

It seems like the F11 key may no longer work on the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet Gen3 after installing the Windows 10 May 2020 Update.

There doesn’t seem to be a fix at the moment, but Lenovo says it is planning to address the bug later in June.

Lenovo devices suffering from Blue Screen of Death

Lenovo is looking into an issue where owners of its devices are encountering Blue Screen of Death errors when they resume from sleep or hibernation.

Unfortunately, at the moment, the only way to fix this problem is to uninstall the May 2020 Update and roll back to Windows 10 version 1909 (or earlier).

Windows 10 May 2020 Update forces you to use tablet mode

We've been seeing reports that people running the Windows 10 May 2020 Update who have installed the cumulative update KB4557957 are being forced to use tablet mode - even if they have a desktop PC.

This changes your desktop to behave as if you were using a touchscreen, and it can be very annoying.

Those reporting the issue note that uninstalling the cumulative update in question gets rid of the problem, but fortunately if you want to keep the update – and relevant security fixes – in place, there is a workaround here.

The simple fix for those running the May 2020 Update as described on Reddit is to tweak Windows 10’s tablet settings.

Windows 10 Tablet Options

To do this, click on the Start button and click the Settings cog, then click ‘System’, then ‘Tablet’. 

Click on ‘Change additional tablet settings’, and make sure that all the options under ‘When I’m not using tablet mode’ are turned off. 

Reboot your PC, and the problematic interface changes should hopefully be a thing of the past.

How to uninstall Windows 10 May 2020 Update

If you're still encountering problems with the Windows 10 May 2020 Update, or you don't like the changes Microsoft has made, then you can uninstall the May 2020 Update and revert to a previous version of Windows.

We wouldn’t actually advise doing this, as you might miss out on future security updates from Microsoft, but if you would rather go back until all the bugs and problems with the Windows 10 May 2020 Update has been fixed, then follow these steps.

First, go to Settings > Update & security > Recovery and click on 'Get started' under where it says 'Go back to the previous version of Windows 10'.

A window will appear asking you why you want to revert to a previous version. Answer the question (this helps Microsoft improve future versions of Windows), then click 'No, thanks' from the next window. This is where it asks you if you want to check for any updates.

Click 'Next' on the window that follows, then 'Next' again, making sure you have your Windows log in details handy. Finally, click 'Go back to earlier build' and the Windows 10 May 2020 Update will uninstall.

If you wait 10 days to uninstall the Windows 10 May 2020 Update, you might find the option is gone. Unfortunately, the only way to uninstall the May 2020 Update after that is to perform a fresh install of Windows 10 using an ISO file of an older version.
