Windows 10 update is finally fixing a particularly annoying bug

Image Description

Windows 10 is getting a solution for a longstanding bug, with Microsoft finally acknowledging that there’s a problem with a driver update getting stuck in an installation loop, and promising that a fix is now being worked on.

So what’s going on here? As Windows Latest reports, this problem with Windows 10 has been hanging around throughout 2020, and affected users are witnessing the OS attempt to install a previous (older) version of an Intel graphics driver – with Windows 10 doing this repeatedly. Which as you can imagine, gets old pretty quickly.

While attempting to downgrade the driver, Windows 10 informs users: “A current driver on your PC may be better than the driver we’re trying to install. We’ll keep trying to install.”

Drastic measures

There were potential workarounds to this issue, but none of them were particularly satisfactory: aside from drastic measures like reinstalling the OS, some users reportedly cured things by removing the existing graphics driver entirely, and installing the driver update again via Windows Update.

The good news is that a fix has apparently been implemented for those testing preview versions of Windows 10, and in the feedback hub, a Microsoft employee confirmed: “We’ve made an update with the Insider Dev Channel builds so that this error will no longer be shown going forward.”

So, with any luck, this fix will be deployed within the release version of Windows 10 before too long, and anyone who has been frustrated by this particular error will breathe a big sigh of relief.

As we’ve seen lately, Windows 10 updates continue to be problematic on a regular basis, and have caused some nasty Blue Screen of Death crashes among other issues in recent times.

  • Reddit update for iOS and Android promises to free you from your echo chamber

    Reddit has released an update to its mobile app for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices that adds a Discover tab, allowing you to find new content and subreddits that you've not come across before, similar to TikTok's 'For You' tab.

    The platform is a place of many communities that can apply to many franchises, products, and brands. Its users, or Redditors as the company calls them, usually subscribe to these, which are called subreddits.

    But across the site and the app, you would usually find new categories and topics by the algorithm showcasing trending content on the main page, or by searching for something manually.

    However, Reddit is aware that there are better ways for its Redditors to discover new content thanks to this update, available for iOS and Android.

    Analysis: About time, Reddit

    It can be difficult to find new content on Reddit, compared to other social media apps such as TikTok and Instagram.

    While the website had a design refresh 2018, it didn't go far enough when making it clear how you could navigate subreddits, or being accessible for new users.

    With its app for iOS and Android, Reddit feels much better to navigate thanks to its different design compared to the website. But Apollo, a third-party app does the same function with an even better interface.

    The new Discover feature is going to help close the gap for Reddit against Apollo here, but the next step should be how this can work for its website, which arguably still houses a design that's from the late nineties.

    If it can attempt another redesign of its site that makes it easier to navigate to new users, alongside making existing content look more appealing, Reddit may appeal to an even bigger userbase than it has now.
