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


    Tho ya it's similer to a fresh Win8 install. Which was pretty snappy itself.

    I was able to open IE on two different virtual desktops. One desktop showed it with one tab and the other had it with two tabs. If you hover over the icons, you can see the open windows and what is in them. That way you can tell which one you need to choose, but it has been that way for a while.
    I can't achieve what you are saying.
    In steps, what I mean:
    1. Open say, Internet Explorer (from the pinned icon) on Desktop 1.
    2. Click on "Task View" and create a new dektop and choose that desktop.
    3. Left Click on the pinned Internet Explorer icon.

    What should popup is the Internet explorer from Desktop 1 and you will actually reswitch to Desktop 1 too. If I left click on Internet Explorer on Desktop 2, I should be able to open a new instance without Middle clicking or right click -> Software name.

    Not bad once clearing out all of the default apps,
    I've always and probably always will use these apps as a website most of which are on my homepage

    Unless I get a really cool theme maker custom visuals it's life as I now it
    Default apps I just can't get into them :/ and hate to be signed into all of them these are feeds which will soak up needed resources in my case

    How do you get to the Modern Start Screen or is it completely gone? I don't use it but I'm curious.

    Taskbar properties, Start Menu tab, uncheck the first box and sign out and in.

    Turn Off Your Network

    1. I was forced to login to a Live/Outlook/Hotmail account. I did NOT like that.

    You don't need to put in a bogus email address you can just...

    A) Click/tap on the Create a new account link.
    B) Click/tap on the Sign in without a Microsoft account link.

    Not one single time did it force me to create a Live account to log in, like it did in Win8.
    ONLY a local account was created by default, every time.
    My experience was completely different.

    There was no Local Account link during my install.
    I looked for it based on how the W8 series worked.

    I noticed that W10TP checked my network and then it asked for my MS Account.

    I used the "Back" button (which took me back to the Options screen) and then I disconnected the network.
    When I confirmed my Options, I was taken to the Local Account setup screen.

    To avoid the MS Account screen, disconnect your network during the installation.

    Update
    After checking Brink's tutorial I see how it works.
    MS cunningly hid the Local Account option on a completely different screen.

    I notice a Feedback window didn't pop-up for that part of the W10TP experience.

    4.1 Start menu is BACK! The only inconvenience that I find in the tiles is that you can't really move them as you wish. I have been able to pin This PC, Settings and Audition. I made them small but I was forced to have two of them side by side no matter what when I wanted to have one column, not two. I might be missing something though.
    I've got that issue too.

    Why? That's not the way that Jumplists have worked since Windows 7 was released. This is exactly the same functionality that Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 has with the exception of it moving to the screen as well.

    I understand what Lebon is saying and agree, when you go to another virtual desktop it shouldn't switch you back to the desktop with that app open, it should automatically open as a new instance on that desktop...

    Mystere, You are talking about jump lists but i don't think Lebon is... Lebons instructions talk about virtual desktops which never existed in 7, 8 or 8.1 so it couldn't have worked the same.

    EDIT:
    When on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc desktop if you right click and click internet explorer it does create a new instance for that desktop but i believe if you are on a new desktop it should just create a new instance when you left click as normal

    Same here. I have my desktop set up fairly conservatively.
    Is there anyone yet that feels they perfer v8.1 to what they've seen in the Technical Preview?
    Yes. But luckily they give you the option to switch to the Start Screen even without touch.
