    Yes, Kari, I understand you're having no problems like mine. I don't doubt it one bit.

    I believe your experience is valid; by the same token, that doesn't make my, George's and Edwin's experience any less valid. Especially when what we're reporting has also been confirmed by feedback to Windows 10.

    I guess we'll just have to leave it at that for the moment.

    It's not all about you Wynona. Anyway, I apologize for disturbing you with my answer to David (I admit, I forgot to quote him), for this post of his:

    I have now edited my post to include the quote to better show which post I replied to. Once more, I am very sorry I corrected some invalid information presented, I should have known it offends you.

    No, it looks to me that I offended you.

    Yeah. well, I should have stayed out of the posted comments. I was drawn in, mainly to support your own experience, which I had also. A reinstall of the OS solved the problem for me.
    I don't even use Word. I use the latest Apache (Open Office) which does everything with less fuss and constant updates.

    But, one last query, of academioc interest only, and I am out of this, do you get this mysterious message at the end of (attempting) to re install:

    Yes, I do get that message, Dave. Except mine says 2/27/15.

    I got the old HP dv9700 out and reinstalled Windows. I haven't tried to install the Preview apps on it yet, but will today.

    Thanks for jogging my memory about your experience. Unhappily, that makes three of us with this plus what I found on the Feedback site. Sigh . . . this doesn't look very good to me as far as a solution goes.

    Although I can't tell who has reported the "Word (Excel, PowerPoint) won't open issue in feedback, I would hope everyone who gets it would at least give a "me too" so it gets booted to the tope with the rest of the important issues.

    BTW, I like Kingsoft's WPS Office, which I've been known to call a "ripoff" of Microsoft Office. And, of course, I have a subscription to Office 365, so I don't need this particular preview. But it's part of Windows 10 and deserves to be the best it can be.

    Not I! I haven't been brave enough to get into that. I will try, though.

    Edit:

    Going into my Account, I did figure out finally how to keep my computers from copying my desktop pictures to every computer I own! Well, at least the Windows 10 ones.

    Will I need to do this for both 10 computers?

    Fair enough!
    As far as the Word/Store... issue is concerned, I'm going to wait for a new Build. If the issue persists, I'll tackle it from there.

    I think you're right, Edwin. I'm not sure, but it seems that something is interfering with my Office 365 subscription installing properly on the dv9700, and I'm thinking I'll leave the status quo on both Win 10 lappies until we get a new build.

    Something good and very odd happened here. Suddenly my Windows Phones, that weren't being recognized by Windows 10, started to connect flawlessly. No new update were installed, I simply changed the USB port that I used to connect my extension cable.



    ~edit~

    Lumia 530, Lumia 630 and Lumia 930 working fine with Windows 10.0.9926.

Where can bugs in builds be reported?
Other than the built in feedback app - because it has a bug for me on build 10166 and is just a blue windows with a logo that doesn't provide any means to do anything with it. On build 10166, I'm finding there to be many bugs. Some of them are: ...
