A new week brings a new Win10 bug from Microsoft to start you on your way. This one is far less serious than previous ones, merely removing your ability to use the seek bar on Windows Media Player. While this will not prevent you from getting work done, it is yet another blow to the confidence of anyone who has managed to retain even a slight belief in the success of Windows as a Service. The Inquirer offers information on this bug as well as one that will interfere with your iTunes as well.
Roll-up your patches to win, eh?
"This time, its an issue with media playback, and specifically the "seek bar", which we're given to understand is the bit that lets you find the specific bit of a song. This only applies to the default player. That iTunes borkage? Separate bug."
