New Light Theme Introduced In Windows 10 19H1 Insider Build 18282

The next major update to Windows 10 will include this new light theme. It is also matched by a new light default wallpaper only available in 19H1. This re-release follows incidents that Michael Fortin, a corporate vice president at the Windows team, classified as "a small but serious issue", otherwise known as data loss.

If you were seeing certain games fail to launch with an error citing unexpected kernel modification detected, please check the games for available updates.

The new update should start rolling out soon to Windows 10 PCs, or you can manually check for updates and get it right away.

Meanwhile, if you downloaded and installed the update and still have files in your Documents folder, you're one of the lucky ones who avoided this problem.

The update brings new features like a dark mode for Microsoft apps and clipboard history/sync.

However, this is changing with the new Insider build form Microsoft. Microsoft had originally issued Windows 10 version 1809 on October 2, but later suspended it due to data loss issues for some users.

More features may be added before the final build will be released. Microsoft's "customer service call and chat volumes" have been decreasing even as the number of Windows 10 users has been rising, he added. However, this does not mean Microsoft won't release ISOs.

Windows Update options have been improved with the ability to pause updates being easier to discover and Active Hours is now becoming "Intelligent".

"We will offer the October Update to users via Windows Update when data shows your device is ready and you will have a great experience", Mr Cable continued.

There was no word on when Microsoft might push the update out to all users, something it has done in the past, although Cable noted that Microsoft was slowing the rollout "to more carefully study device health data".

Microsoft published a workaround on the support page; the company recommends that a script is run on affected systems that reconnects mapped network drives automatically when users sign in to the operating system.
