  • Wonder if this will fix the Bootlocker randomly insisting on entering decryption key on startup (even though not necessary). Do wish the changelogs from Microsoft would have more details in them. Slightly related, Installed the latest Intel drivers (after uninstalling Microsoft's ones because apparently they weren't the new Universal Driver Framework, which is weird), seems to be working fine. Away from school because of shelter in place so can't test if it improved the surface dock though.
