Microsoft gave us fix for its stupid KB5000802

So, as I wrote before, MS broke LibreOffice work (and just broke many Windows 10 system) with its stupid update KB5000802.

OK, they gave us the fix for that problem. But it will be optional (!!!!). You should install it manually if you have the problem!

For Windows 10 20H2 and Windows 10 (2004) install KB5001567

For Windows 10 (1909) — KB5001566

For Windows 10 (1809) — KB5001568

For Windows 10 (1803) — KB5001565.

Why they made it different for different builds of ONE OS Windows 10, I don't know. And I think they don't know too.

You can find your Windows 10 build number in system options - system - about (I can show you only Russian variant):

    After Windows 10(Home) "Feature" update to 20H2 I can not save files in Libre Office - it goes into an endless wait loop and had to be killed by Task Manager. (It was the same for notepad at first...)
    Just tried KB5001567 as per your post, only to find it was already installed on 18/03/21 - so it no longer has to be installed manually.
    Will try updating Libre as I am still on version 6.
