Recently,media reported that Windows 10 May 2020 (20H1/Version 2004) feature updates caused the “Fresh Start” feature to function. Themedia TechDows then went into the depths and found that there had been reports on Feedback Hub eight months earlier, suggesting that these problems were not isolated.

Basically the same as before, Windows Insider members discovered the problem early on, but Microsoft’s response mechanism was too slow. As of now, the Windows 10 Version 2004 Feature Update website has not listed any known issues.

Since the 2017 Windows 10 Creators Update, Microsoft has introduced Fresh Start in Windows Security, which allows users to reinstall Windows 10 systems while maintaining data integrity. It’s important that this feature doesn’t try to preserve the user’s existing applications, providing users with “Fresh Start” as if it were the first boot. However, in the Windows 10 May 2020 feature update, the “Get Started” button was removed because this feature was not working properly.

The “Additional information” link still exists, and users click to direct to the web page with information about this feature. However, under “Fresh start, select Additional info, and then select Get Start startexecution” and still jump to the page. It’s unclear whether Microsoft intentionally removed the Fresh Start feature, or whether it’s just a neglected BUG.
