    Goes away as soon as you move the mouse though, but at least you can peak at the Desktop.

    That just about breaks my heart. Friggin asshats doing the change for change sake, and screwing up my world in the process.

    These borderless windows keep weirdin' me out!
    The borderless windows is actually one of the things I like the most so far. Now if only I could figure out how to get rid of the weird shadow that windows have.

    In other news, I am happy to report that I have gotten my drivers reinstalled, am working on programs now, and Onedrive seems like it may have fixed itself. I have also learned the importance of doing manual system restore points when working with pre-release software.

    Control panel, system, advance systems settings then visual effects then uncheck show shadows under windows.

    I know I looked there once already. Can't believe I missed it. Thank you very much.

    Hot Corners definitely unavailable for desktop users; Charms invoked only with + C.

    Interesting entry in 'Windows Features':

    Plus a whack of language pack entries!
