Windows 10 May 2020 Update Starts Rolling Out to the Public

Microsoft began rolling out the Windows 10 May 2020 Update (version 2004) to the public. You can have Windows Update check for updates, and offer to upgrade Windows whenever it's available; or head over to the Microsoft website in the link below, and get the Windows Update Assistant and upgrade now. Windows 10 May 2020 Update introduces improved Network Connections, particularly with Bluetooth; the new DirectX 12 Ultimate API that enables richer gaming experiences, the Windows Hello. Hitting the Windows key + . (period key) invokes the new emoji menu that includes Kaomojis. Improvements have also been made to Edge, Cortana, and Windows Accessibility.

I tried that just for shits and giggles, and emotes popped up on my screen. Who knew? :roll: :roll: :roll:

I think it's older? The feature (the emoji menu/panel) has been referenced as far back as 1709. The Kaomojis themselves are a newer addition...

They're working on it, from what I read of one of their reps on Reddit. But it's not available in 20.5.1.

Nope. Kaomojis have been made available for quite some time now.

Wait a month for any show stoppers before updating. Still on 1809, I think that was the 4th update in place, think the PC is due for a format and fresh install.

You're right, they've been around since 1903 at least.

It's disappointing that Microsoft has forced users to be even more cautious than usual about Windows updates...

I installed it on my notebook, so far it hasn't blown up.

2020. 350k+ died of corona. And we got kaomojis built in the world's main OS.

What a year

I installed it on my main rig. Running fine so far. Only thing is I need to reinstall Creative driver, but perhaps that is because it somehow default to SPDIF after the update. Playing a couple of games, Witcher 3 and Planetside 2, no problem at all.

Sadly the majority of the world's users are apparently toddlers who are only able to communicate in pictures instead of using words, and Microsoft - like every other company - has to pander to said toddlers.

didn't work, adding that key did nothing. What worked for me was adding DisableExpressiveInputShellHotkey key with value 1.

I’m actually a fan of these kaomojis over emojis. I’ve had a few saved in my shortcuts for years now. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Has anyone noticed any performance improvements in gaming with this release coupled with Radeon Settings 20.5.1 or 20.4.2 WHQL ?

I think in this update they added a couple of new kamojis. But a lot of articles say they added the Win + . shortcut. The biggest thing is the addition of WSL 2 In my opinion. :)

Nope, the shortcut has been around for quite a while, since 1709.

I was not contradicting this. I was only stating that the perception that this is a new thing is spread by a lot of articles.
