As of last Thursday, MS added recently — and widely — reported issues with Windows Search to its Known Issues list for 1903.

Last week, MS first dropped CU KB4512941 into the 1903 Release Preview ring to Insiders. Then on Friday, August 30, that update hit general availability. Interestingly, lots of folks have been reporting issues with this update. This includes yours truly, who blogged here at Win10.Guru about the 0X800F081F install error (and its fix). In the
