Windows 10 May 2019 update fixes .gov.uk websites accessibility issue

21 May 2019 1

Ever since the tech giant Microsoft introduced Windows 10 with all the new life to Windows platform with new features and UI, the company made the users install the updates forcibly with no control over them which was like practically pushing the updates down the throat of the users. This resulted in automatic malware installations if the updates were infected.

Now, the company has rolled out an update recently bringing back those vital controls that a user had before Windows 10 to pick and choose within an update to be installed. Now in the latest update for May 2019 to Windows 10 in the release preview and the slow ring, we get a fix for ‘gov.uk’ website accessibility.

With build number KB4505057, the company addressed an issue that prevented the access to the gov.uk website when they were accessed through Internet Explorer 11 or even on Microsoft Edge. This happened with the websites that didn’t support HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS).

Another fix in the latest Windows 10 update is for the error “0x800f081f – CBS_E_SOURCE_MISSING.” In case you’re willing to install this update, you can head over to the ‘Updates’ section of your PC settings. It’s expected that the full rollout of the update to the general public would also be happening in the upcoming few weeks.

Actually didn't hear about the accessibility issue as it was almost non-existent to access the UK government's website. But still, it's always a good development to see update fixing problems.
