    Oh, forget to say... it stays at 95%...reboot has no effect... battery is < a year old.

    EDIT:
    Nevermind... switched off/on the wall plug... charging again.
    Well, Mr. Superfly, join the club of unintentional giggles given to your readers. Edwin and I really did need this.

    Some Energy managers only charge to a level below 100%. Throwing the wall switch 'reset' the capacity test, I guess. A similar thing occurs when I recharge AA batteries (or any size) in a wall charger - it reaches it's capacity threshold and stops charging - if I unplug the charger and plug it back in, the charge cycle begins for a minute or two until the threshold test is met.

    Lenovo util for example: An introduction to Lenovo Energy Management 6.0 - Lenovo Support (US)
    Q: Why does the capacity of battery maintain 50% during the later stage of charging?

    A: It is because that the health mode of “Best Battery Mode” is selected. In this mode shown in Fig.6, the charge capacity is limited under 45%~50%.
    If you want to switch to another mode,
    Click the icon of “Energy Management”
    Click the icon for Advanced Features
    – ”Battery Health”
    – ”Optimize For Battery Runtime”
    – ”Apply”
    – ”OK”.

    Thank you, Count. So far I haven't been able to follow any instructions in that area, so this is welcome.

    Edit:

    Got it downloaded; now to transfer to the affected lappy.

    Not a bug but interesting...


    I wondered why .NET Framework 3.5 applies immediately in W10TP, where as in W8.1 and previous, it would have to download, install then a restart was necessary.
    Well..., it seems that it's already installed and hiding in Settings/System/Optional features/Add a feature,
    however, it won't install from there, you still have to go to 'Programs and Features/Turn Windows Feature On or Off' !?
    Probably going to be like that til the two 'Control Panels' are amalgamated.

    To turn :NET 3.5 on when one is offline(from the internet you have to: from a thread in Microsoft Community Answer from Kevin Wol that I thanked him for posting(a few people had already asked this question
    In reply to Kevin Wol.'s post on October 15, 2014


    This is the command I used;

    DISM /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFx3 /All /LimitAccess /Source:d:\sources\sxs

    Where the Source:d was the dvd I used to do the tech review installation (d: should be the drive with the windows 10 tech review installation software)
    Thank you for posting this Kevin.
    I was trying to do a clean install of Windows 10TP on my test laptop, but I use USB mobile broadband, so after installation my surfstick needs .NET 3.5 but the way Microsoft set it that 3.5 isn't activated and the choice given is download, so I was stuck upgrading from Windows 7 which worked very well, but I wanted a clean slate to test with. After a while I had given up, until I came across your post today and tried it.
    The only thing that should be added is a warning that the user goes to files and makes sure of the source letter. I

    Anyone have the wrong time on their PC this morning?
    Specifically, an hour ahead?

    I am thinking (bad thing for me) That they now have more than enough feedback to work with, bugs and suggestions, that they no longer have a need to send out more builds for comment.
    Perhaps we will have to wait for the RTM now.
    edit: Forget it. I see that is included in Brink's link.

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: ...
