With the supposedly polished release of Windows 10 coming in two days, Microsoft should be putting its finishing touches on the operating system. Instead, it’s scrambling to fix a bug in its latest update, sent out through its Windows Insider Program last Saturday.
According to CNET, the latest test version of the Windows software, build KB3074681, triggered unexpected behavior when some people attempted to uninstall programs through Control Panel instead of using the newer Settings screen. In the site’s tests, doing so crashed the Control Panel app, kicking users back to the desktop.
Since the company wants Settings to replace Control Panel, this would be one way to force people to stop using it. But it wasn’t intentional. Microsoft’s Gabe Aul, engineering general manager for its operating systems group, told tech blog SuperSite For Windows on Sunday to stay tuned for a fix, which he promises should be coming soon.
