Microsoft confirmed the existence of a second issue affecting the Windows 10 operating system. This one may alter the appearance of the Windows 10 device’s desktop or taskbar.
According to Microsoft, it is possible for the device to temporarily vanish or become unresponsive. Microsoft confirms that the issue affects devices running Windows 10 versions 20H2, 21H1, 21H2, and 22H2. Windows 11, Microsoft’s most recent operating system, is not affected by the issue.
The issue has already been resolved using Known Issues Rollback. Known Issues Rollback is an update function that restores a feature to its previous state. Microsoft has recently made extensive use of the functionality.
Known Problems Rollback is only supported on devices that are not managed. The majority of Windows 10 users should not encounter desktop and taskbar issues at all, or they should already be resolved. Microsoft states that propagation can take up to twenty-four hours.
The situation is different for devices managed by an enterprise. These do not automatically receive the Known Issue Rollback command. System administrators must configure the rollback using the operating system’s Group Policy.
Administrators must download the Group Policy data from Microsoft as the initial step. The download link can be found on the website listing known issues and notifications, which are linked above.
Then, this must be configured in Group Policy. Administrators must then open the Group Policy Editor and navigate to Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Name of Group Policy> to configure it. Once configured, the device applies Known Issues Rollback.
Recently, Windows 10 and 11 have been plagued by numerous issues. Microsoft confirmed a Direct Access issue this week, which it also resolved with Known Issues Rollback. In addition, Kerberos authentication sign-in failures and domain join processes that may fail have been confirmed.
Additionally, Windows 11 users may encounter performance issues with certain games and applications.
Microsoft responded swiftly to the taskbar and desktop issue, confirming and resolving the problem on the same day. It may still be encountered on some devices, particularly if automatic updates are disabled.
