A rose by any other name..
I seem to have ignited a little dispute. I'll try and document my steps with the ISO, not the Media Creation Tool, downloaded from MS, Build 14332.
Any ideas why my desktop backgrounds are borked in this update? I've always had it on slideshow, and it puts a different background on each screen, changing every 30 minutes.
Now they don't change. It's got one image on both screens. If I switch to a single image, it's duplicated on both screens. Switching back to slideshow, changes nothing. Clicking the option for "Next desktop background" does nothing.
It also asks be for my password to unlock the screen. Not the PIN. Even though I've disabled the option to lock the screen and require a password. It is additionally ignoring the setting to disable the "tips" on the lock screen. So basically all of my lock screen settings and slideshow settings are being mostly ignore, or are not functioning as they should.
After some tinkering with the background settings, I got it to choose two wallpapers from the collection, but it never cycled them. Tinkered further, and I'm again stuck with one image on two screens that never changes.
When each new build arrives it may tend to reset things back to factory defaults. You also have to remember these are "Developer" not general release type builds each having their own tweaks necessary at times as well as quirks to contend with. That will be one of the main reasons for the plans to keep the Redstone 1 anniversary update on for some time unless that should turn buggy like the TH2 update did after about two months up time.
For a dual display set up you have to go back in there with each build at times when not using a 3rd party software like UltraMON or DisplayFusion to once again change the display settings for things like extended desktop, enable taskbar on both displays, and other things. UltraMON and DisplayFusion allow a Smart taskbar option for each of those programs as well as setting up a separate wallpaper for each screen. A good one for slide shows has been the IrfanView app.
It's not an issue of things resetting to defaults. I expect that. It's an issue of changing settings not having any effect. I don't use 3rd party software for my dual-display since Windows does everything I need for it well enough.
I imagine a clean install will resolve the issue. Of course it will.
It would be nice to find out what caused the issue, so that a fix that doesn't require a wipe can be implemented.
It also could be a bug caused by something in the upgrade process that needs to be fixed.
Any idea guys why my PC after updating to this build after 10 minutes rebooted with no reason and now it just keeps rebooting and rebooting?
Did you try with new user? If the problem shows with new user then it is probably corrupt system and you can try repair.
There was an option for "Windows 10 Pro Technical Preview or Windows 10 Technical Preview".
The install continued as previous builds.
the other thing I noticed the there was a Repair windows option which was missing on previous IP builds.
I think I finally found a wallpaper that will sum thing up much better in this regard! It definitely asks a question!
A clean install and seeing how things go then would be a nice fast solution since upgrades even by the WUpdates can end up having impartial moments where things just simply do not go on fully as they would had under other more ideal circumstances! Here I will be waiting for the 342 ISO to show up finally on the MS download page now still only seeing the 295 Enterprise and Education editions along with the 332 iso for quick grabs without fuss of need to convert this to that but an instant mount of iso if not immediately written to flash drive.

With this build I have a recurrence of a previous dialog box saying 'there is no email associated to perform the requested action'. I have MS mail program selected, as I have for multiple builds on this machine.
