Windows 7 receives its second “final” patch
Software updates can be frustrating for tech giants at times. When the “Final” patch before EOL of Windows was pushed, there was a bug that was causing a “Wallpaper issue” when users tried to use the “stretch” option in “personalization” options, which resulted in a black screen when Windows was restarted.
Users on social media were demanding a fix, and it looks like Microsoft has heard to them. At first, it said the new fix only would be for those who subscribed to its extended security updates (ESU) program followed by a statement “We are working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release, which will be released to all customers running Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.” soon after that.
It is good to see Microsoft listening to the users, but, at the same time, it was quite embarrassing as well. Tech giants are not usually known for buggy final EOL patches and to see that coming from a company like Microsoft was quite surprising for us.
