Microsoft Edge for Windows 10

The most recent cumulative update for Windows 10 version 1903 (May 2019 Update) is causing a series of new problems. On Saturday, Microsoft confirmed that Windows 10 update could break down the Start menu with a critical error and promised a fix in the coming weeks, but it appears that the same update breaks down yet another feature.

According to several reports, Microsoft Edge appears to be broken on some PCs and there are reports of installation failures, too. In some cases, you will experience Start menu, Microsoft Edge and other problems after installing KB4517389.

Windows 10 KB4517389 was released on October 8 for all consumers as an automatic update, and it resolves an issue breaking down printers.

In a community post, the Microsoft engineer stated that the software giant is aware of classic Edge browser issues and a fix will be delivered to devices in October.

“We are aware of this issue and estimate a resolution to be released in late October,” the employee stated.

Microsoft is planning to fix Windows 10 Start menu issues with an optional update in late October as well and it’s possible that the same update will include a patched Edge browser.

At the moment, Microsoft says it’s not aware of any workaround but you can always remove this update altogether to address all the glitches. However, your PC would be left without security fixes and it could be vulnerable to security problems if you remove updates published by Microsoft on Patch Tuesday.

A growing list of problems in Windows 10 v1903

Unlike the October 2018 Update, Microsoft correctly handled the rollout of May 2019 Update and the update was also in the phase of testing for a considerable time. As a result, Windows 10 May 2019 Update rollout went well enough and fewer users reported major problems.

While Windows 10 May 2019 Update itself offered a bug-free experience, the cumulative updates have been plagued by several problems. The latest monthly updates affected Printing feature, disabled networking, broke Start menu, and even caused performance issues.

In related news, Windows 10 version 1909 or November 2019 Update is nearly ready for release and it’s likely to be a performance-friendly update.
