Windows 11 gaming bug fix is now rolling out to everyone

Windows 11 was hit by an unfortunate bug in November which caused stuttering frame rates in some games with the 22H2 update, as you may be aware, but the issue has now been fully resolved by Microsoft (after the cure was implemented in testing last month).

Clearly everything went well with that testing process, as Bleeping Computer flagged up that the rollout of the full fix to all affected Windows 11 users is now happening. So anyone previously affected by the block Microsoft put on the 22H2 update (or safeguard hold, as the software giant likes to call it) will be able to install the upgrade.

Microsoft observes: “This issue was resolved in KB5020044 and the safeguard hold has been removed as of December 14, 2022. Please note, if there are no other safeguards that affect your device, it can take up to 48 hours before the update to Windows 11, version 22H2 is offered.”

So, while some may have had to wait a couple of extra days for the 22H2 update to be provided to their blocked PC, by the time you read this, it should have been offered up – or be ready for installation if you check for it under Windows Update.

Analysis: Full steam ahead with security tweaks and UI goodness

Obviously, it’s good news that the full fix has been implemented with no hold-ups, and the 22H2 update is now being piped to gamers who were affected by this nasty bug (and it hit some apps too, we shouldn’t forget, although Microsoft never actually clarified which ones).

Those folks can now benefit from the honing of the interface that 22H2 brings with it, including some important smoothing and changes to core elements of the UI in the latter case. Not to mention some work on the security side of things, with bolstered phishing protection for Microsoft Defender SmartScreen to pick out an example.

From what we can see going by reports on various online forums, it seems that there are satisfied customers noting that the fix did indeed work for them in terms of there being no more stuttering post-22H2 update, and these appear to be the majority (with the odd complaint still hanging about, though it’s possible that could be caused by other issues rather than this particular bug).

Android 12 will bring the end of third-party share menus

Apps like Sharedr will no longer be able to replace the default share dialog. What you need to know Third-party apps will not be allowed to replace the Android share menu in Android 12. You will no longer be able to set apps like Sharedr as the default. Google says it never intended to allow third-party apps to replace the official Sharesheet. One of Android 12 's biggest highlights is the new Material You design language, which brings major changes to nearly every key UI component. Android 12 will also introduce a major change to the way users share links and photos, according to a report from XDA Developers . On Android 11 , Google allows third-party apps and OEMs to fully customize the Android Sharesheet, which is the reason why the share dialog differs from one app to another. It is even possible to completely bypass the official Android Sharesheet by setting an app like Sharedr as the default Sharesheet. In addition to providing a more consistent experience, Sharedr

The new Amazon Fire HD 10 is growing into a viable productivity tablet

An already good entertainment device finally gets productive. Amazon has been busy churning out a whole host of new devices and upgrades to existing devices over the past several months. Earlier this year, I reviewed the excellent Echo Buds (2nd Gen) , and even the fantastic Echo Frames (2nd Gen), have since been updated to include options with sunglass and blue light filtering lenses . In early May, we also learned that Amazon was refreshing the Echo Show 5 and Echo Show 8 and that it was even rolling out its first Echo Show for kids . While newer and more novel products like the ones mentioned above often see a faster update cycle, more mature devices like Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets go longer between new versions. In fact, the last update to the Fire HD 10 line was back in 2019, so, understandably, Amazon was ready to reinvigorate its flagship tablet. Not only did it update the specs and colors on the Fire HD 10, but it also gave us a second version in the Fire HD 10 Plu
