................................I have just amazed myself AA.

I have managed to find out that my system is running on Windows 10 Edition 1903!! 8) 8) ;D

On older Bluetooth devices windows 1903 will disable it if it as not secure.

That is interesting :y

I tried two different dongle types that were brand new and they both would not connect the Bluetooth devices in my home to the PC, which is what others found to be the case.  I sent them back for full refunds and having given up on making my PC Bluetooth connectable again; it is not worth the hassle! ::) ::) :D ;)

Whenever windows 10 do an update it comes on the screen not to turn off computer and then starts counting upwards as a % figure of completion.As soon as this reads 30% complete the computer automatically shuts down,then next time I turn it on it resumes the count until 100% is reached.Why doesn't it do it all in one go?
Normal. Happens with all updates.

It cannot update system files that are in use at that time, so that 30% is mostly to "queue up" the files to be installed early in the next boot.


Over simplification, of course.

Anyone installed ver. 1903 yet?

I've heard it can disable Bluetooth on some devices :-\
Not noticed any issues.  All my stuff is on 1903 (ignoring my works laptop), and all my bluetooth stuff still works.

My problem with the Bluetooth dongle started way before June. ;)
Clue is in the update name - 1903, is Mar 19 if you were an early adopter

Ah, right, that makes sense! :y

Yes it was about then that my old dongle stopped working.

I just update as they automatically come through as I have not got the confidence or knowledge to do anything else.  I also know that users of PC's are warned to keep the updates current to ensure maximum protection, although I also have F-Secure loaded. ;)

Yesterday, when the update menu came up with the restart now or delay the restart, I choose the latter to find my laptop had restarted this morning & requiring my password, thus confirming the manual update is nothing of the sort & if you have critical things running like long term reliability tests or things like a 3DMax render farm then you need to turn the updates totally off.

Or do the correct thing and adjust the hours its deemed you are not using it ;)

Disabling Windows updates is a bit silly really.
