Microsoft Rolls Out Android-to-PC Screen-Mirroring Test

Microsoft Rolls Out Android-to-PC Screen-Mirroring Test

You can manually download the latest Windows 10 cumulative updates from Microsoft Update Catalog (link).

To stop Windows Update trying to install what Microsoft has delicately described as "problematic" updates again, the borked patches are blocked for 30 days while engineers work on the issue. There have been some notably bad updates automatically foisted upon Windows 10 users in recent history, but when bad things happen Windows can often automatically recover, or users can pop into safe mode and dig out the offending software/update. This new feature in Your Phone app was first demoed at the Surface event in October a year ago, and it's now up for testing in the latest Insider build of Windows 10.

Having Windows cease to operate after updates is a rather scary occurrence.

Announced today, a new Windows 10 preview build (Build 18356 - 19H1) supports wireless Android screen mirroring for select devices, allowing you to control your smartphone from your computer.

"Your device has recently recovered from a startup failure if you have received this notification: 'We removed some recently installed updates to recover your device from a startup failure.' If Windows detects this, it will try to resolve the failure by uninstalling recently installed updates".

This isn't the first time a seemingly innocent Windows 10 patch has caused sudden drops in performance, and its unlikely that this issue only affects desktops. The image above is the message that Microsoft used when Windows XP reached its end of life. As a result, you're getting fixes related to Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer browsers, the Windows kernel, and the Windows Scripting engine.
