    One thing I have discovered is "Change the size of all items" or "Change only text size" has no effect on the Font size or size of the Start Menu so if you were running a resolution of 1920 x 1080 @ DPI at 200% (Extra Large) or even increased the text size the start menu remains at its default size and the text would be hard to raed.

    I've got to admit I don't like not being able to alter the size of the icons on the Start Menu.

    Attachment 5594Hi there



    Attachment 5595
    I've already made a comment on that -- Menu is almost UNREADABLE on a 4K enabled monitor -- in spite of being able to change text size and other desktop items.

    Application menus are OK but the start menu text size doesn't seem customiseable in any way -- perhaps I'll send Ms the cost of my next Eye test and glasses if I need them !!!!

    Cheers

    Can you put different wallpapers on each desktop?
    Only if the desktops are on different displays.

    Getting W10 TP to run like my W8.1 installation only requires that I switch W10 back to using the Start Screen and then installing Classic Shell in the Desktop mode. I actually like W10 TP better, because so far, it seems to be a bit snappier when it comes to opening up programs, although my boot times aren't much different using an SSD.
    I've noticed that the new window animations are quicker and it makes 10 feel way faster than 8.

    I will say that the Preview is more brisk and speedy (more responsive). I suppose I found 8.1 to be more customizable that's all.
    Can you imagine if in the coming months, something is added to the Preview that slows it down? LOL (just our luck!). I doubt that though since it seems they've largely cleaned up what was in the 8x codebase.

    I installed the tech preview on a new Dell Latitude e7440 at work, and it installed without any issues pretty quickly.

    Overall, i'm not blown away. It's not bad in any way, but it's not revolutionary in any way either. Thus far very subtle visual changes. It's really like a service pack for Windows. It's about the equivalent thus far of the change from 8.0 to 8.1.

    Agreed. It's perfectly fine, but I wonder why the rave reactions as compared with 8.1? I think 8.1 with a start menu replacement was just as nice. I suppose windowed Metro apps are nice too, but I won't be using that many.

    The preview is faster because it's a fresh install, and you haven't cluttered it up with stuff yet

    Remember, this is an early technical release, and it's missing a lot of stuff that will come in later builds.

    Agreed, at least for me. Some may have upgraded through bringing along a lot of crud.
