    I forgot that you not only created one but also tested it as I requested. My bad . Your assistance in finding out if the ISO works or not was valuable.

    Anyway, I had first upgraded all my 9841s to 9860. Had various small issues, nothing bad but yet enough to annoy me. Tried the clean install, was surprised how well it worked, now I have replaced all upgrade installs with clean install and have next to none problems.

    No problems.

    I could build a new VM as I only have a few programs installed:

    • Pale Moon 25.0.2 (64 bit) runs smoothly
    • MPC-HC (64 bit) & VLC (64 bit) are a bit twitchy


    The media player issue is probably caused by my Linux Mint 17 graphics driver though.
    VMware Player complains about the OpenGL driver.

    I have no idea how to fix that and I can't be bothered to search for an answer.
    The last time I tried to fix a driver issue, it took me and my Linux expert friend several hours.

    IMO, b9841 worked better than b9860 does.

    I regret updating to b9860.
    I found that 9841 was much more stable for me. I wound up clean installing 9841 again then doing the upgrade straight away to 9860. Then updated the system and installed any necessary drivers. Things are much more stable now but I do have an issue with newly installed software either waits a few days to show up on the start menu or never actually shows up on the start menu. The items are listed properly in c:\programdata\microsoft\windows\start menu\ just a no show on the start menu.

    I haven't had stability issues with either build.

    For me, Window Snapping was the "killer feature" of b9841.
    In b9860, it's horribly broken (even the basic W7-style of Window Snapping doesn't work reliably).

    The two different GUI styles are still annoying though (e.g. Control Panel vs PC settings).

    Home location displays "This folder is empty". Tried various views, sort by and group by - nothing changed. This was a consolidate location (links, recent, other shortcuts) ... now it's nothing since he 9860 bld.

    I like the concept of home, MS must be figuring out what to place in that location. Maybe they should make it user configurable ala Libraries (what does the user want in the home location).

    For me it shows Frequent folders and recent files (cut in 2 portion)

    As far as I have understood the Home view shows recent items. If it's not selected as in my case, the Home view is empty. It starts populating with recent folders if you select both items in Taskbar Properties > Start Menu tab and reboot, at least I can reproduce this every time: deselect recent items, Home view is empty, select recent items and reboot, Home view starts populating.

    Thanks Kari, the magic potion - reboot!

    Thought about it, but did not follow through on the hunch. Odd that it would require a reboot and odd that the "recent" option controls the Home location.

    I'll set my Start Menu tab as in your image and reboot.

    In my mind, the Home location is more than Recent and should not be controlled by this option. I'll send feedback on my results (I am fairly certain that this will resolve the Home location because it is easily reproduced on your machine).

    If you set it as mine screenshot shows, the Home view remains empty. I do not want the Home view to show the recent items, that's why I have disabled it. As far as I know you must select the recent items checkbox, then reboot to get Home view populated.

    In that case, I think that MS should add an extra checkbox to that window.
