Unfortunately, the patch also has a “delete all files in My Documents” bug.

That bug didn't hit me. Could be because I didn't have much in My Documents.

And the update has been pulled due to a large number of issues including the My Documents issue:

Guess I'm lucky I didn't have more problems then I did.

I haven't had my Windows 10 office computers on in a while which is probably a good thing after hearing about this :o
I have a lot of important stuff in My Documents folders that I need.

Well, since I was one of the ones that installed the October features update, I did get an update to the update, but it looks like for everyone else the features update is still on hold.
Again, the "my documents" deletion bug never effected me and the only problem I had with the update was with my VPN software (which works with an old version of my VPN providers software or with OpenVPN). But I still can't tell what features were added if any.

Had an annoying problem after the latest "features" update. Trying to open Microsoft Excel files through File Explorer would cause File Explorer to crash. Files would open fine if I navigated to them inside Excel, but clicking on them in File Explorer wouldn't open them and would just cause File Explorer to crash.
Microsoft recommended fix- reinstall Windows 10.
Fix that worked without reinstalling Windows 10- uninstalling and reinstalling Microsoft Office.

Probably just a messed up registry entry for how to open Excel files.  Easier thing to try would have been to right click on any excel file and use "open with" to change the default program from Excel to something like Notepad, open a file or 2 that way, then change it back to Excel.

Thought of that, but couldn't even right click on them. Highlighting them in any way in File Explorer caused a hangup and crash.
