  1. Any release names or links to images with the lastest updates? " The Rain" at Team OS does them but tags the system info..I could wipe them with a .reg but that defeats the point of a "clean" image. https://lookimg.com/image/fhx8m
  2. Despite a 'no builds' call for the week, Microsoft today released Windows 10 build 17677 to Insiders on the Fast ring, introducing some minor new features, most of which have to do with the Edge browser. It's from the Redstone 5 development branch, meaning that it's a preview for the next feature update to Windows 10 that's due to arrive this fall. But along with the new features comes fixes, improvements, and known issues. Here's the list of what got fixed and improved: And here are the known issues: Once again, there's also a separate list of known issues that have to do with Sets and Office integration: If you're not happy with the known issues, make sure to check back on June 22, when Microsoft will kick off its next Bug Bash. To install today's build, head over to Settings -> Update & security -> Windows Update -> Check for updates. If you're not on the Fast ring yet, go to the Windows Insider Program tab and click 'Get started'. Source

  4. POSTER NOTE: I found this article concerning a problem with Windows 10 update and RDP and mapped drives. I don't run Windows 10 so I don't know how prevalent the problem is, but here is one solution that was found for it. This guy is a professional tech support person and has provided valuable information on fixes for various windows problems over the years. PROBLEM I own two computers that automatically upgraded to Windows 10 17134.1, dubbed the 'April 2018 Update'. Ever since the upgrade to 17134.1, my remote desktop (RDP) and mapped network drives no longer work. Also when I click on File Explorer -> Network to view my shares, it says it can't find the computer on the network. It's strange because I can access computer A from computer B, but not the other way around. I have been trying to fix this for over 3 days now and no one on the Internet seems to have a solution. Can you please help me with your remote desktop support service? " SOLUTION I connected with Robert using my remote support service. Below I'll describe how I went about troubleshooting this issue. How to Fix: Windows 10 April Update: RDP, Mapped Drives Broken For the record, the remote desktop (RDP), mapped drives, network shares and printer shares are all related to the same issue because they rely on resolving an UNC path (computer name) to an IP address. If this mechanism is broken, then any associated service you use - whether it's RDP, file and print sharing, mapped drives, etc won't work. The main issue Robert wanted solved first was remote desktop, so I started there. I looked at the remote desktop settings on both machines via the System Properties -> Advanced settings. Both machines had remote desktop protocol (RDP) connections turned off - I am not sure how this happened, though I suspect this setting got flipped during the Windows 10 April 2018 upgrade. Here's what strange: even though this setting was set as "disabled" on both machines, I was still able to remote desktop into his second machine. At any rate, I set the remote desktop to "enabled" on both machines and RDP but it still would not resolve the computer name. It's important to note that whenever you have issues where you can connect to one machine but not the other - whether it's a network share or remote desktop, you should temporarily disable the firewall on both machines to see if it helps. In this case, the computer names (UNC paths) still would not resolve on the network. That said, I was able to remote desktop into Robert's machines using IP addresses of either machine. That is a well known system administration 'trick' if resolving UNC paths does not work and you need to access a machine. I researched this issue on Google and was not able to find any relevant suggestions, though I remembered an issue I had with OpenVPN not working properly with UNC paths when I had IPv6 enabled. I decided to disable IPv6 and network shares worked again, meaning RDP and mapped drives, printer shares, etc would work as well. Problem solved for now - at least until Microsoft can fix it properly. Robert said he had mixed success in the past 3 days where his network shares would work one day and not the next. I suggested to him it was likely a cached setting with IPv6 and IPv4 conflicting. With IPv6 disabled, this should no longer be an issue, though if it happens again I set both his computers with a static IP address. That way, accessing the systems using an IP will be easier to remember (if needed). Source
  5. The next Windows 10 update is set to arrive on Monday, April 30. Most Windows updates are pretty boring affairs, consisting mainly of security and reliability tweaks, but next week Windows 10 users will get some interesting new features including the ability to go back in time. The focus of the update is time and the efficient use of it. The first new feature is called Timeline, and it allows you to go back in time up to 30 days to find your unfinished stuff. By that, Microsoft means anything you do using Microsoft Edge or Office 365 on your Windows 10 PC, iOS, or Android device while logged in to a Microsoft account. If you are part way through an online order, or wrote a document on your smartphone and want to finish it on your PC, Timeline is meant to make searching for and accessing that content seamless across devices. The ability to retrieve stuff up to 30 days in the past is a nice added feature. Next up is Focus Assist, which is all about removing distractions when trying to work or relax. With Focus Assist turned on in Windows 10, all social media updates and notifications in general will be muted. When turned off, a summary of what you missed is presented as a quick recap to see if you care. It's also possible to automatically turn Focus Assist on for regular periods of the day when you don't want to be distracted. Microsoft Edge is also receiving new features which aren't exactly new. Audio can now be muted per tab by clicking an audio icon, there's a full-screen distraction-free reading mode for web pages, e-books, and PDFs, and Edge will offer to save your address and payment details securely for easier online shopping. You'll also see a new Grammar Tools button, which can help with text comprehension by breaking down words on a page into syllables as well as highlighting nouns, verbs, and adjectives. Finally, we have improved voice control in two forms. The first is Cortana, which once the April 2018 update is installed can control your smart home if compatible devices are present. Smart home appliances from ecobee, Honeywell, and Nest should all carry out the commands you give them via Cortana. Then we have Dictation, which has been much improved for recording your thoughts. Pressing Win+H allows you to talk and everything you say is written down. Microsoft is confident everyone will be impressed with how accurate Dictation has become. If your Windows 10 computer seems to be working harder than usual on Monday, that's probably the April 2018 Update downloading and installing in the background. It may not happen until later in the week, though. Source
  6. Hello everyone, I'm thinking about changing my laptop hard drive to SSD as this is the age of SSD now. Now, my concern is that, my laptop came pre-installed with Windows 10 Professional & I have an OS recovery DVD but it's older version. I'm stuck here with the activation process, as repository threads are removed now, which I'm not. And I don't wish to recover from the original DVD, because I've to update again my whole operating system, which will be a waste of both time & bandwidth. I have the latest ISO of Windows 10 & I'll be installing from it. My question is, will the OEM product key automatically slipstream to the OS if I install the latest version & activate itself over internet or I have to insert a product key separately & activate it? Please help.
  7. Intel has released a new integrated graphics (GPU) driver bumping the version up to 15.65.3.4944. The driver is compatible with Apollo Lake, 6th, 7th, and 8th generation processors and comes with game optimizations. The driver introduces a new feature with the ability to automatically configure game settings for Intel Graphics on 6th Gen Core Processors or higher (including systems with 8th Gen Core Processors with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics). To find the new setting, look for the ‘Gaming icon’ in the Graphics Control Panel. The feature is still in beta, so game availability and functionality is limited. Intel is also looking for feedback on the new feature, which you can provide here. The driver and new automatic configuration adds support for the following games: Age of Empires: Definitive Edition Launch Driver Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age HD Launch Driver Battlefield 1 Battlefield 4 American Truck Simulator Call of Duty WWII Destiny 2 DOTA 2 Grand Theft Auto V League of Legends Overwatch World of Tanks In addition, Intel notes the following changes and enhancements with this driver: Enhanced performance of graphics workloads for 6th Gen Core processors or higher with intelligent power management under maximum load. Improved performance in video encoding for all codecs. Power saving optimizations during video playback and UHD gaming is now available on all 7th Gen Core processors and higher. You can check out the full release notes and download the driver using the links below.

  8. We've all been there. When Windows 10 is trying to download and install a big update, it takes a long time, and sometimes you'll have to shut down or reboot your PC before it's finished. Once you boot back up, you'll find an error message in Windows Update with a 'Retry' button, and it's time to start the process over. But according to a report from Windows Central's Andy Weir, that's all about to change. Soon, you'll be able to resume the download/install process, instead of starting from scratch. This is good news for just about everyone. Many users have slower connections and older PCs that would take longer to install these updates, but even those with fast connections might find themselves traveling and on slow hotel Wi-Fi, which might disconnect from time to time. The news came from Windows Insider head Dona Sarkar, and she wasn't specific about when this feature will actually be available. But the good news is that, at some point, if you have to throw your laptop in your bag while an update is still at 50% downloaded, it will still be at 50% when you open the device back up. Source
  9. Remember when people used to freak out about Facebook News Feed changes? Something similar is happening right now, but for Snapchat. The app's major redesign has finally reached the US, and some people hate it. Petition website Change.org said more than 30 petitions have been launched in the last day protesting the new Snapchat update and asking developer Snap to change the app back to the way it was before. Most of this new activity is being driven by US users, though the largest petition against the Snapchat redesign was started on Jan. 10 by a user in Australia, a Change.org spokesman told PCMag. "With the release of the new Snapchat update, many users have found that it has not made the app easier to use, but has in fact made many features more difficult," the Australian petition, which has garnered more than 66,000 signatures as of Thursday afternoon, reads. "There is a general level of annoyance among users and many have decided to use a VPN app to go back to the old Snapchat, as that's how annoying this new update has become." A similar petition with more than 4,000 signatures laments that the app is "too over complicated" now, with one supporter noting that they're "more likely to win the lottery than be able to get the hang of this shitty update." Another commenter said the redesign gives them "bad anxiety." Users are complaining that it's not only harder to find their friends in the app, but that some contacts aren't even showing up. "People that you may never Snapchat are now right at the top, making it difficult to find the people who you do Snapchat," petitioner Emily Andrews from Roanoke, Va. wrote. "What pisses me off the most is that people are not given the option to update or to not update." Ironically, the redesign was intended to make the app simpler to understand and use. First announced in November, the update separates content from friends and content from publishers. The app opens the camera, as usual; you can swipe left to see what your friends are up to, or swipe right to access the Discover section, which includes content from publishers, creators, and the Snapchat community and is populated based on your interests.

  10. Today is the 15th day this month that we’ve seen Windows patches, yanked patches, patches of patches and re-re-re-patches. Welcome to the third cumulative update for Win10 Fall Creators Update this month. Thinkstock/Microsoft Microsoft told us three weeks ago that Win10 Fall Creators Update, version 1709, was ready for enterprise deployment. Since then, we’ve seen the early January patch yanked because it tanked AMD machines. Then, after the first patch was reinstated, we got two more cumulative updates. In the past three weeks. I guess that’s what Microsoft now means by “Current Branch for Business” and/or “Semi-Annual Channel.” The latest salvo in the story arrived today with KB 4058258, which brings Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, version 1709, to build 16299.214. It’s headed out the Windows Automatic Update chute right now. Along with the 1709 cumulative update, we’re getting another “WaaSMedic” Remediation Shell, KB 4074608 — a Servicing Stack update released yesterday that, per @abbodi86 on AskWoody: Fixes and resets update-related parts to their “supported” configuration. It restores registry settings, services statuses, schedule tasks, it clears out disk space, and launches UpdateAssistant.exe if installed. Mainly it’s meant to pave the way to receive the latest updates, whether quality updates, or feature update to latest Windows 10 version It’s an MSI package not a regular update, doesn’t require a reboot. It has more than 12 releases so far. He goes on to say: Servicing Stack updates are bundled with cumulative updates in version 1709. You may notice that the 1709 SSU has a distinguished version (i.e. 16299.122.1.0), not the generic version like other updates before (i.e. 10.0.1.2). Servicing Stack updates won’t be listed in Windows Update history, but you can find it in Installed Updates Here’s this month’s hall of patching shame: Jan. 3 — The initial round of Meltdown/Spectre patches Jan. 4 — A re-issue of several Meltdown/Spectre patches Jan. 8 — Microsoft decides to pull Meltdown/Spectre patches for some AMD machines and releases a Win8.1/Server 2012 R2 Monthly Rollup Jan. 9 —56 “Patch Tuesday” patches arrive, many of them flawed Jan. 11 — New Meltdown/Spectre patches get released to some AMD machines, with no details on which ones Jan. 12 — “Unbootable state” patches for Win7, 8.1 (KB 4073578, etc.) show up Jan. 17 — 14 patches, mostly previews, arrive — along with two new Win10 cumulative updates Jan. 19 — Win10 cumulative update metadata changes (to alter installation logic) appear, along with a Win10 1709 preview Jan. 22 — There’s a fix for Outlook 2016 that lets you forward files attached to plain text messages Jan. 23 – The Win8.1 Preview Monthly Rollups are modified, apparently to avoid installing them on Win8.1 PCs running both PIC and APIC controllers. Jan. 24 — Standalone Win8.1 patch to fix crashes on PCs running both PIC and APIC controllers and a standalone Win7/.NET 4.7.1 patch to fix crashes using Windows Presentation Foundation. Jan. 26 -- .Net Quality Rollup preview KB 4054992 Jan. 29 -- Win10 1703 update component update KB 4073543 Jan. 30 -- Win10 1709 Servicing Stack Update KB 4074608 Jan. 31 -- Yet another Win10 1709 cumulative update KB 4058258 There’s also a newly updated KB article, KB 4073757, that covers many details with Windows, Meltdown and Spectre. It has lengthy lists of links to Security Advisories — Microsoft, Intel, AMD, Nvidia and more — guidance for all sorts of different kinds of hardware, a list of computer manufacturers — Acer, Dell, Epson, Fujitsu, HP, Lenovo, LG, NEC, Panasonic, Samsung, Toshiba and Vaio — with links to their advisories, and a promise of patches yet to come for Server 2012 and Server 2008 SP2. Something to look forward to. Join us for a CBB break on the AskWoody Lounge.

  12. TinyNvidiaUpdateChecker is a small open source program for Microsoft Windows devices to update Nvidia drivers without relying on Geforce Experience. TinyNvidiaUpdateChecker is a small program for Windows that checks for driver updates when you run it, downloads updated drivers, and runs the installer. The program depends on the HTML Agility Pack which you can download from the project's website and place in the same directory as Tiny Nvidia Update Checker. The application attempts to download it otherwise (it is just 130 Kilobytes). Note that you need to have WinRAR installed on the system to make use of the minimal installer method the program supports. The standard Nvidia setup is launched otherwise with Express selected by default. NVIDIAs drivers also come with telemetry which this application can remove from the installer, but requries WinRAR in order to extract the self-extracting archive, and will only extract the core GPU drivers. (no Physics, HD Audio, Geforce Experience, 3D drivers, etc). Windows may display a SmartScreen warning when you run the program. You need to bypass the warning.

  13. A botched wireless update for a remotely accessible smart lock system has bricked hundreds of them. The locks suffered a “fatal error,” according to device’s manufacturer LockState, rendering them unable to locked. Customers are asked to either return impacted locks for repair, or request a replacement. “We realize the impact that this issue may have on you and your business and we are deeply sorry. Every employee and resource at LockState is focused on resolving this for you as quickly as possible,” wrote Nolan Mondrow, CEO of LockState in an email sent to customers last week. More than 500 customers using model 6000i RemoteLocks are impacted, the company told Threatpost. In total, about 11 of the company’s keyless lock systems in use today are affected. The 6000i allows customers to remotely manage and monitor doors, and alerts them when assigned codes are used to open a lock using a keypad. “After a software update was sent to your lock, it failed to reconnect to our web service making a remote fix impossible,” Mondrow said. In lieu of using a keypad code, many impacted customers can use a physical key that comes with the locks, according to LockState. The company told Threatpost that on Aug. 7 the company mistakenly sent out an over-the-air firmware update to its 6000i systems meant for its 7000i model locks. The update caused first-generation models of the 6000i locks to malfunction, rendering them unable to be locked and no longer able to receive over-the-air updates. “After the push happened, we immediately notified those who received the update, and a few hours later we wrote with repair/replacement options,” according to the company in a statement to Threatpost. The 6000i locks were commercially available to anyone, but were also part of its Airbnb Host Assist marketing partnership. Approximately 200 Airbnb customers were impacted, LockState said. A number of Airbnb customers took to Twitter to complain about the problem. Airbnb did not return a request to comment on this story. The botched update and bricked locks come as more pressure is put on IoT device makers to focus on shoring up device security and reliability. It’s also not the first time a keyless door system has caused owners headaches. In May, the New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman settled with Safetech Products over the sale of insecure Bluetooth door and padlocks. The issue in this case had less to do with a fatal error and more to do with Safetech sending clear text passwords via Bluetooth between the locks and the user’s smartphone. Last year, SecuRing warned a growing number of Bluetooth devices used for keyless entry and mobile point-of-sales systems that are vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks. Article Another Article

  18. The Aug. 8 Word 2016 nonsecurity patch renders merged cells useless in both Word and Outlook. The only known solution is to uninstall the patch. RAJasonCampbell If you have tables in a Word doc or Outlook message and you suddenly can’t see or click on specific cells, chances are good that 1) the tables have merged cells, 2) you’re using Word 2016 or Outlook 2016, and 3) you installed this month’s KB 3213656. The buggy patch was pushed out the Automatic Update chute on Aug. 8. Microsoft hasn’t yet acknowledged the problem, but there are several credible, detailed reports about the bug. The only solution is to uninstall KB 3213656. Poster RAJasonCampbell on the Microsoft Answers forum describes the bug thusly: Windows 10, Office 2016 Pro Plus both fully patched. Have a Word document that includes multiple tables, in each table there are merged cells. If the cell is merged you can't click on the cell or see the data in the cell. If you copy the table out of Word and paste it into Excel, the data shows. If you un-merge the cells and paste it back into Word, it shows all of the data. I tried this on a system that is not patched and the merged tables display properly in Word. Why would an Office update break pasting merged cells into a word document? Any advise on this will be greatly appreciated; this is impacting over 4600 documents at this time, and I am sure we will be finding many more. Poster Jase L dissected the problem on the Microsoft Answers forum and in the Technet forum: We have applied KB3213656 to our Office 2016 environment in order to fix the Outlook spell check issue mentioned in the KB article. We have since noticed that this has broken tables in both Word and Outlook. Basically if you merge two or more cells, as long as at least two of the cells are in different rows, the resultant cell becomes completely unusable. You cannot click into it, type into it or right click it. That is unless the merge includes the top row. If you open an existing document that has cells that have been merged previously. Any of those cells will appear completely blank. Doesn't matter which view you use in Word. Microsoft has not acknowledged the problem or offered a solution, and the official help on the forum runs in the usual “Re-install, start in safe mode, new user profile, go away” vein. The patch is still available for download, but there’s at least one report that it’s no longer being offered through Windows Update. Fortunately, uninstalling the patch clears up the problem — but that raises another concern, voiced by BenutzerserviceK: This time the patch introducing the issue can be uninstalled without security concerns. But I'm seriously concerned that the next patch containing also security updates for Word 2016 WILL reintroduce the issue if Microsoft does not investigate and fix it in time. Note that this problem is different from the bug in the Office 2016 patch KB 4011051, which broke hyperlinks in Excel 2016. That bug was fixed with another patch, KB 4011093, earlier this week. More joys of automatic updating. Discussion continues on the AskWoody Lounge. Source: Word, Outlook merged-cell problem arises after install of patch KB 3213656 (Computerworld - Woody Leonhard)
  19. If you’re updating the Anniversary Update, version 1607, it’d be a good idea to take a screenshot of your Update History before installing this month’s KB 4034658. Jamie Eckle/IDG (IDG Worldwide) It’s still much too early to tell if we’re going to have problems with this month’s Patch Tuesday trove, but one irksome bug has cropped up with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update cumulative update, KB 4034658 — the one that brings Windows 10 version 1607 up to build 14393.1593. When you install KB 4034658, the installer wipes out your Update History (see before and after screenshots). Woody Leonhard/IDG Update History before Woody Leonhard/IDG Update History after I’ve seen no acknowledgement of the bug, explanation for it, or any workaround. Your smartest course of action is to take screenshots of any Update History that you wish to retain. Surprisingly, I haven’t heard of similar bugs in the updates for other versions of Windows 10.

  23. You have to patch sooner or later, but there’s no reason to directly expose your machine to malformed missives from Microsoft In case you hadn’t noticed, Microsoft has had a tough time with patches this year. From a total lack of patches in February (except for a late IE patch), to yanked and reissued botched patches that followed, to a jumble of problems with Windows and Office patches — including seven admitted bugs in last month’s Office patches — Microsoft has proved itself adept at Jack-in-the-box patching. You don't have to join the legions of unpaid patch beta testers. Don’t get me wrong. You need to patch eventually. But you don’t need to march to Microsoft’s tune. Many — dare I say most? — advanced Windows users don’t let Microsoft’s poorly tested patches onto their machines until the initial screams of pain have subsided. To be sure, your sainted Aunt Martha — the one who’s afraid to use Windows for anything but mahjong — should stay on Automatic Updates. And if you have ultrasensitive information, such as nuclear launch codes or transcripts of meetings with Russian lawyers, you shouldn’t rely on Automatic Update anyway. But if you’re a savvy Windows user, smart enough to be reading this, you’re advanced enough to keep the dogs at bay until we’re sure the major problems have passed. I’m particularly concerned about the Windows 10 patches for this month. If you’re running the Creators Update, version 1703 (which hasn’t yet been declared good enough for business), you got a massive bunch of problematic bug fixes a few days ago, labeled KB 4022716. It’s likely that Microsoft will roll similar massive patches for earlier versions of Windows 10 out the Automatic Update chute this month — and it’s anyone’s guess if they’ll trigger the same amount of angst as the 1703 version. Blocking Automatic Update is easy for Windows 7 and 8.1. It’s harder, but doable, for Windows 10 — and the method varies depending on which version of Windows 10 you use. (Pro tip: If you have a Win10 machine that uses Wi-Fi to connect to the internet, all you have to do is set up a metered connection.) I have full details and step-by-step instructions in the Computerworld article Woody's Win10Tip: Block forced Windows updates. Take a minute right now and make sure Automatic Update is turned off. The machine you save may be your own. I’ve set the MS-DEFCON level to 2, and opened the topic for discussion, on the AskWoody Lounge. Article source
  24. Microsoft announced this week that it is testing a new update targeting framework for the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update release. When Microsoft releases feature updates to Windows 10, these are delivered as staged roll outs and not pushed instantly to the whole Windows machine population. There are several reasons for doing so, including bandwidth and control. While Microsoft has a powerful infrastructure in place to ship updates to users, it is not designed to distribute a Gigabyte sized update to hundreds of millions of machines on a single day. This goes along well with the extra bit of control that a staged roll out offers. Microsoft may monitor the initial deployment on machines to catch any issues before it affects the whole Windows population. Windows Update Targeting Framework While Microsoft revealed that it is testing a new update targeting framework, it made no mention as to what is new or changed. While we don't know anything about what has changed, we know at least where the test will take place. Microsoft plans to test the new framework on the Windows 10 Insider Slow Ring, and there when it releases the forth Windows 10 Fall Creators Update build. With the forth coming release of a new Windows 10 Fall Creators Update build to the Slow ring, we are testing a new update targeting framework and will be delivering the build in staggered phases. This will simulate the rollout process we use when we release major Windows 10 feature updates to retail customers. The underlying system remains the same from a user perspective. The feature update will be rolled out to the machine population gradually. Users have options to wait until it is their machine's turn to receive the update, or may hit the "check for updates" button in the Settings app under Updates & Security > Windows Updates to bypass the queue and get the update immediately. This method works for release versions of Windows 10 as well. There is also a third possibility, but it is only an option if Microsoft released an ISO image of the new version of Windows. The change replicates the updating system that Microsoft used on stable versions of Windows. Microsoft made no mention as to whether it will use the system in other Insider build channels as well. It seems likely that it will keep the system in place on the Slow Ring only for the time being. Article source
  25. The Thunderbird team has released Thunderbird 52.2.0 today, a new stable version of the popular cross-platform email client. The new version of Thunderbird is already available through the email client's automatic update system. Most users who have it installed will have their Thunderbird client updated to version 52.2.0 automatically. I ran into an issue with the new version, and would like to talk about it for a moment before I look at other things that are new. The problem that I ran into was that some mailboxes, one regular Gmail account and one Google Apps Gmail account, would not list any folders whatsoever. While the account is still listed in the Thunderbird sidebar that lists all accounts and folders, it does not list information about emails, an inbox, spam folder or anything else. To make matters worse, a click on the account title lists a generic page that does not function at all. Even stranger is the fact that this seems to affect one or two of the accounts randomly. I restarted several times to see if it would resolve the issue, but one or both of the accounts showed the same symptoms most of the time. Related to that, it seems at the least, is that entire mailboxes or headers of emails are downloaded anew when Thunderbird starts. I was not able to fix the issue. What I did was roll back the client to version 52.1.1. You can download that version from the Thunderbird download website, and install it over the current version to go back to the older version of the client. Not ideal, as Thunderbird 52.2.0 includes security fixes, but better than working with a client that won't display some accounts properly in its interface. This did fix the issue on my end however. I tried upgrading to Thunderbird 52.2.0 twice, and I ran into the display issue both times. To download an older version of Thunderbird, head to the download page, and copy one of the download links to the clipboard by right-clicking on the link and selecting the "copy link address" or comparable option from the context menu. The US English link for Windows looks like this for instance: https://download.mozilla.org/?product=thunderbird-52.2.0-SSL&os=win&lang=en-US To download an earlier version, replace the version part with the earlier version. For the link above, that would be https://download.mozilla.org/?product=thunderbird-52.1.1-SSL&os=win&lang=en-US What is new in Thunderbird 52.2.0 Thunderbird 52.2.0 ships with the following changes: Clicking on links with references/anchors where target doesn't exist in the message not opening in external browser Mailing list (group) not accessible from macOS or Outlook address book Calendar: Invitations can't be printed Messages sent via the Simple MAPI interface are forced to HTML Large number of blank pages being printed under certain circumstances when invalid preferences were present Multiple requests for master password when GMail OAuth2 is enabled Attachment not forwarded correctly under certain circumstances Detection of non-ASCII font names in font selector Embedded images not shown in email received from Hotmail/Outlook webmailer There are also two unresolved issues, none of which describes the issue that I'm facing: On Windows, "Send to > Mail recipient" does not work. Workaround: Install the Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 redistributable runtime library or the Universal C Runtime for Windows Server.
