Windows 10 Bugs: Installation, Download, Copying, Start Menu Apps and More
Not that it isn’t expected, but Windows 10 despite being all beautiful has its fair share of bugs. Even after extensive beta testing there are issues that are still loose in the operating system.
For instance, we have had ample supply of complaints from people who were having trouble even with the Windows Media Creator which has been prescribed by Microsoft for downloading the operating system in the first place.
So when and if the .iso is saved to directory junction the “something happened” error pops up.
Interestingly, people have stumbled upon a rather unexpected issue where having more than 512 items in the Start Menu apps makes all of the apps to vanish – looks like someone at Microsoft didn’t want you to over clutter your Start Menu!
However, the developers working on Windows 10 are definitely going to fix this one soon.
Similarly, we have picked up reports that the “copy” function sometimes doesn’t work. Even when you have directed the computer with “Ctrl+C” the file would not get pasted when you press “Ctrl+V.”
Moving on to the Windows Store; some of the users tried installing certain apps from the store but somehow they weren’t able to do so. While some of the users claimed they couldn’t get Cortana downloaded, others bemoaned the bug that didn’t let them download any of the apps whatsoever.
Also, people have complained that once you mute the sound while using headphones, the computer will not unmute it no matter how you try.
There are numerous other bugs that Windows 10 is facing, so don’t think that this is a comprehensive list.
Before ending it here let me assure you that Microsoft is working on the fixes and they are even encouraging users to report bugs and provide feedback so that new updates can be rolled out as soon as possible. Most notably, their UserVoice forums are proving to be effective in providing feedback that doesn’t go waste.
