    I seem to remember a problem with the mobile versions but my memory is vague on this. I have noticed that I installed 365 on my 32gb machine and there must have been a reason for that, because with the limited space I am sure I preferred the lighter version.

    Non-working apps can sit for years in the Windows Store.

    Update to 1809 wiped out touch functionality as usual.
    I re-installed SOC driver 10E but forgot that I had to run the .bat file separately so was left fuming for a few days. Now everything is okay.
    I have left a complaint on Feedback Hub.

    Thanks for that tip. I am now going to wait and see. I will report.

    I sorted it. Had to delete the app and reinstall it. And then force a subscription update in the About screen. It'll still say View-only but edit started working again.

    Okay. Here we go again. Now it's 1903 time.

    1903 installed on my 64gb machine with no problems.

    On my 32gb machine it failed and reverted to 1809. However it left the 1903 WLAN and Bluetooth drivers. Now it won't show wireless networks. It will connect to a bluetooth mouse but the mouse pointer will not move. Then the touchscreen failed to work.

    I solved the touchscreen issue by reinstalling SOC package 10E as normal.
    I tried to reinstall the ATK package but halfway through it asked for a disc. Repeated attempts produced the same result.
    I updated BIOS to version 213 without seeing a difference.

    This website
    https://www.techrepublic.com/articl...ndows-10-may-2019-update-heres-how-to-fix-it/
    is showing that the wifi and bluetooth faults are known to Microsoft but new drivers need to be installed. The Asus website is not showing new drivers for wifi or bluetooth.

    The Asus website is showing the new BIOS file and a new Asus online update file but it's too late now to use the update file after the wifi connectivity is gone.

    Anyone know about this?

    EDIT: My 32gb version on 1809 will now not connect to anything on bluetooth.

    Off topic: You still use a 32 gb model? I have a 32 gb Envy Note 8, and it's completely useless now--absolutely no space and no way to make space.
    How does your 32 gb M80TA work as far as storage space is concerned?

    I have a 200gb sd card.
    I don't keep any files on the tablet.
    W10 takes 10.12gb. 365 takes 1-2gb.
    After my other apps I have 10gb free.

    The AVTN8 32 gb puts the recovery partition on the supplemental sd card, so that probably makes a difference. It's been a while since I've checked, but I bet my HP Envy has a built in recovery partition of around 10 GB, which would account for why you have 10 GB left over while my Envy has none.
    With the HP Envy Note 8, using a supplemental SD card doesn't make any difference. The *&% thing is so overstuffed just with basic Windows 10 that there's no room to do anything.

    I have reinstalled 1809 and everything is fine except the wifi and bluetooth still don't work.
    Does anyone remember which driver package missing causes that?
    I installed the W10 ATK and the 8.1 SOC.
    On the SOC I got setup.exe to run but not setup.bat.
    Setup.bat produces Access Denied in the Command window.
