Windows 10 May 2020 update flaw causes external monitors to go dark

Microsoft has disclosed yet another wave of problems affecting systems after they install the most recent form of Windows 10.

Of these latest issues, which increase the original batch of flaws with the May 2020 update, is really a bug that triggers your monitor to visit black when you try drawing in an application. Microsoft specifies the bug is the place drawing in an Office app, like Word, but that other third-party drawing apps (like Whiteboard) can also initiate the issue.

If you’ve already installed the most recent update and wish to check if the body is affected by the external monitor flaw, go to the Device Manager and graphics controller. You will notice a yellow triangle by having an exclamation mark onto it warning you that your system might have problems.

Microsoft says the problem should be fixed when you restart your laptop. This is an annoying solution, but the only one until Microsoft releases a fix inside a future form of Windows.

Another bug removes your laptop’s USB printer port once you restart the system using the printer connected. The problem occurs when you connect a USB printer to some Windows 10 machine, then shut down Windows and switch off the printer. When you begin your laptop back up again, the USB printer port is no longer listed.

The issue stems from a Language Monitor contained within the driver for certain USB printers. Microsoft’s option would be to connect the printer and power it on before you begin Windows. Again, the organization is focusing on a fix expected in a future update.
