    Sorry that I cannot bring a solution to this topic, but I'd like to say I have the exact same issue here (after an upgrade from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10).

    Hello Magafe and Alex, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    If you like, you can use OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to change the name of the OS.

    Worked like a charm to me! Thanks!
    Wonder why "Windows 8.1" was still there after the upgrade to Windows 10. I don't even have a dual boot. What I do have is a Factory Recovery Partition (my Samsung laptop came originally with Windows 8, not 8.1).

    Glad it could help. I suppose a quirk with the upgrade.

    This may have been a deliberate decision. This is a user preferences setting and the OS upgrade does not change it because the user may not wish it changed.

    Strange one that like my system shows W10, what's going on some systems show windows 10 some 8 some 7, it's crazy this like, this is probably the problem why people can't get back into their computer after upgrade.
