This month’s Windows 10 cumulative update quietly removes pre-installed apps such as Notepad

On this month’s Patch Tuesday event, Microsoft released the KB4565503 cumulative update for the Windows 10 May 2020 (20H1/Version 2004) feature update. However, there is user feedback that after installing the cumulative update, some pre-installed applications are quietly removed, and users can only reinstall one by one.

Judging from the current user feedback, the default uninstalled applications for this update include Notepad, Tablet, Drawing, and possibly some other applications that were not found. The good news, though, is that if the user wants to reinstall these applications, they only need to go to the optional feature interface of the Windows 10 system to install it.

The cumulative update also improves the user experience on the OneDrive desktop side:

Fixes an issue that might prevent you from connecting to OneDrive using the OneDrive app. This problem occurs on some old devices, or on devices that use older apps, which use traditional file system filtering drivers. Therefore, this may prevent these devices from downloading new files or opening files that were previously synchronized or downloaded.
