Speaking of the Control Panel, it seems to take quite a while to come up on my computer. Since I get impatient, I click on it a few more times to "hurry it up". So then I have multiple copies of the thing, heh. But if I click on one of the god mode shortcuts still working, it comes up instantly.
And THEN just try to find something like Device Manager in the new Settings folder. Instead, they hid it on the right click on the Start button. Time to find out where all the new shortcuts are and create a new god-mode list.
BTW, I was at the Otis elevator test rig (30 stories tall!) doing a calibration of their HP test equipment (they even had a calibrated hammer with a cal sticker on it!) and I asked about elevator buttons. It turns out that Otis deliberately ignores anything after the first push. "Otherwise", he said, "we will be creating monkey like behavior of rewarding pushing the button a whole bunch of times to make the elevator stop here first."
So far the buggy start pinning has gotten better and i've found apps can be pinned to start. However, once you've done that and go to download another app and pin it, it won't pin. I have to delete all the apps off the start screen and start a new start screen with all the apps I want pinned.
Another wish is that they incorporate the hacked ability to change the title color or at least have it match the accent you pick. Looks much nicer with it on my machines.
Also, if they could make tablet mode task bar fully transparent or option to hide it, this would complete the "bug squashing" as far as the ux to me.
Then there's the dark theme in Edge and Music, and I can get it hacked onto settings and store, but not implemented as a toggle in settings, store, outlook or file explorer. Why are they half-assing dark capabilities?
W T F?!
Please, everyone, for the life of your battery and our eyes, take a moment to go to the feedback app and upvote all the dark, email, calendar, file, explorer, settings, store categories you see that apply so they'll take notice.
I have clean-installed this build from the official MS ISO. At last, I was very happy to see a new ISO! After approx. ten hours of usage, and after installing the majority of the applications I use on Win 7, my main OS, I'd like to say that I really like this build. It works fine on my system and I enjoy it.
Here are a couple of bugs (?), though, that I have observed, at least on my system - fully shown in my specs :
1) Still there is "an application preventing my computer from shutting down or rebooting". Nine out of ten times, or 99 out of 100, this application is the "Program Manager". It proceeds after a couple of seconds or if I force it. I do not know why this is happening. Any ideas?
2) The text blurriness in all those Windows components, like the Device Manager, the Task Scheduler, the Windows Firewall, the Resource Monitor, and many more, still exists at 125% "zoom". I'm not expecting them to correct/fix this, I have to mention it though.
3) When trying to "Change only the text size" from Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display, after setting for example the Title bars and the Menus to "12", when I set the next available feature to "12", as well, the text in the menus returns to "9", or anyway decreases its size. Does this happen to you?
These are the things I have observed so far. But I really like this build!
Thanks for the suggestion, Kari, but I don't think it will fix it. I have not tried Clear Type on this build but on the previous ones it did not have any effect. It's just that Windows 10 do not like any of my monitors. I'm beginning to realize I'll have to live with this, and thank God I'm not spending my days and nights in the menus of all those Windows components. IF you have some free time, and the pleasure, you can read my thread "blurry text" referring to this issue in detail.
