This news is particularly for MS Paint Fans all around the globe.

We all felt sorry for our dear MS Paint when Microsoft announced its demise after 32 memorable years in July 2017, as it wanted users to move to the modern 3D Paint.

Users who attempt to install the Windows 10 May 2019 Update when an SD card or USB device is plugged in to their PC will see an error message informing them that the installation can not proceed due to a hardware incompatibility, and that there is no need to worry.

Nope, Damian Lillard's series victor wasn't a bad shot
However, Lillard clearly got the best of Westbrook in the matchup and he ended the series with an incredible walk-off 37-footer. Regardless of whether Lillard's game victor was a "bad, bad shot", one thing is for certain: Dame is a bad, bad man.

Installing the Windows 10 May 2019 Update (1803) may take a little longer than expected if you insist on leaving Dollars devices or SD cards plugged into your PC all the time. Users observed that Microsoft stopped warning about the future removal of the Paint app. Doing so will block the update from happening.

This is being done to avoid drive reassignment error. SD cards and USB thumb drives are specifically named in the advisory, though all types of storage devices including internal hard drives and SSDs could also have their drive letters changed unintentionally during the update process.

The May 2019 update Build 18362.1 or above is the RTM candidate, the version that gets shipped to OEMs and system builders. Which, by definition, probably means that some may be permanently blocked from the Windows 10 May 2019 update. That error will appear with the message "This PC can't be upgraded to Windows 10", which sounds quite ominous, but that's far from the case. The drive letter reassignment is not limited to removable drives.

Body of missing U.S. boy found in shallow grave, parents arrested
The body of a 5-year-old suburban Chicago boy who's been missing for almost a week has been found, authorities say. The search began last Thursday morning when his father calmly called police and reported him as missing.

The workaround is fairly straightforward: unplug any USB drives or other devices, and take out any SD cards. The bad, however, is that it won't be ready until "a future servicing update" for the OS.

Microsoft has been working to update some of the older elements of the Windows experience.
