Ah yes, they made a lil change. Notice something? Gone is disabling hardware driver updates. Very sneaky. Policy Editor here I come....


I made a clean install with a usb. It didn't forced Nvidia drivers on me like the RTM did. It also didn't try to download wrong Intel chipset drivers. Basically it didn't download any driver. I like this. It was a hell when WU tried to install the wrong old Nvidia drivers even when I had newer installed. Windows Updates need to change though. We need release notes and manual installing for those who want to check what to install. I'm Ok if they make auto updates by default but we clearly need control on them. The new version feels smoother and faster for me. It looks and feels less of Beta-ish OS. Seems more polished. Still there is work to be done here and there. It's clear MS rushed the OS to release it fast.

And that's the problem. 'Free' things always have a catch to them. Even though they sell Win10, I want to know the % of people who've used the upgrade option. It has to be 90%+.

Then you lucked-out. When updating it installed the AMD 15.11 Beta driver, even though I already had it installed. lol

Did Microsoft finally address its stupid decision to remove the biggest indicator of an active window, or do the title bar colours really only apply to Explorer and built-in dialogs?

Yay, targeted adds baked in and sold to me as a "feature", my favorite.

Quick fix for that: Don't use Microsoft Edge.

Maybe this is why (how) they rolled out Win10 "free" for most users... lol

Skype app from Windows Store?? Or the proper downloaded program?? Personally I steer away from most apps from the Windows Store (Skype, FB, etc) as the functionality is oftentimes somewhat hindered - and updates are probably somewhat delayed.

Did you click "Check for updates" button? You sure it downloads only updates? No hardware drivers?

From shots I've seen, it should apply to almost all active windows. Exceptions of course, such as Steam, CCC, Spotify ext.

Their mass collection will be their downfall. Far too much information to manage.
