Microsoft releases Windows Update KB3070365 to fix an issue with Flyouts in Windows 10 Build 10130
Microsoft has released a Windows Update KB3070365 to fix an issue with Flyouts in Windows 10 Build 10130.
The Redmond company released Build 10130, on May 30th, to the Fast Ring of the Windows Insider Program.
Microsoft also announced that the Build had some known issues, which we reported here. One of the issues was related to Flyouts.
If you aren’t sure what that is, here is a brief description:
When you click on an app’s shortcut on the taskbar, system tray, a window will pop up. This is called a Flyout.
Windows 10 Build 10130, had such issues, which prevented the icons on the taskbar, the Start Menu (and Screen), the Cortana app, Network, Battery, and even the Action Center from opening. The only work around for this issue was to click multiple times on the icon for the app to Flyout.
Microsoft originally announced that it would be fixing this issue, as well as some other bugs, with a Windows Update, but it never gave users a clear idea of when the updates would arrive. But that changed today with the released of the following update.
Windows Update KB3070365 has been made available for all users who are on Build 10130. The update should automatically be downloaded and installed on your computer. But you can manually check if the update is available too.
To do so, click on Start and then on the Settings app. Now select Update and Security, and you will be taken to the Windows Update tab. Click on the “Check for updates” option, and it will download and install KB3070365.
You will need to restart your computer to finish installing the update. So make sure, you have sufficient power on your laptop to install the fix and reboot.
Note: This update is available for both Windows X86 and X64 bit computers running Build 10130. Refer to the official support page for KB3070365, for more information.

Microsoft is working to kill more bugs to ensure that Windows 10 will be ready for launch on July 29th.
