My printer (a HP Photosmart 5520) works without problem.

And Notepad is still available in version 2004.

Everything seems good to me.

Printer works fine, but it is a fairly new model, I replaced it a year or so ago as the old one needed SMB V1 to be enabled on my computers, this is the insecure protocol that wannacry used to propagate around networks.

Notepad is fine.

... I understand that version 2004 no longer has Notepad as a text editor. Do you know if that is true? Thanks1
I am using Notepad regularly in Win10-2004.

Cheers

Thanks. My printers are a bit older but I hope when I have to install ver. 2004 there is no problem. I am surprised about Notepad. I have to quit believing what I see on the WEB. Today I searched again and now here is what I see about Notepad and other apps. "It's also worth noting that Microsoft has made WordPad, Notepad and Paint apps optional in Windows 10 version 2004; they can be removed via the 'Optional features' page in the Settings app."I also use Paint a lot and would miss having it if it were not there.

Thank you for that information. I know a while back I saw where it was going to be available only as a downloadable app because it wasn't going to be an integral part of Windows any longer. However, today I searched again and found what I posted above. Glad to hear it and Paint are remaining in this new version of Windows.

Optional is not the same as absent! It means that you can disable those apps if you feel you don't need them, not that they aren't available.

I am still confused about the 2004 update.

Just today I got a notice that I needed to restart to install Windows updates. I did so and find this info in Settings > System > About . . .
version 2aug2020.PNG
I then go to Security and Updates and find this . . .
uptodate 2Aug2020.PNG
I read in this thread that my system might not be capable of handling the new version. How do I find out if this is the case?

Confused in central Texas . . .

@BobH,

18363.997 is the last cumulative update for version 1909. If you are not being offered version 2004 it is likely Microsoft has detected something on your machine that might make the update not install. You are probably better off waiting but if you want to try to updgrade see this post http://eileenslounge.com/viewtopic.php?p=272216#p272216 from HansV earlier in this thread. It has links to two tools to download the release.

In the same article that linked me to the site I posted above it was mentioned that MS does not make it easy to know why you are not being offered the update and perhaps you will never know.
