    Oh boy! Forgive me if this gets L...o...n...g.

    I tried so many things on my first install of Windows 10, 9926, that I got it totally screwed up.
    Nothing that I found, here or elsewhere seemed to work for me.
    Oh, on that first install, the time was off, and the only time zone presented was the Pacific time zone.*

    So I grabbed another spare HD and did a fresh new install to the new drive. Going very carefully through the first few screens in the Setup, I found one little line in one of the login screens that said Log In without a Microsoft Account. (or something like that),
    I went there and VOILA I was able to finish the install without ever putting in a password.
    * On my second install, all of the time zones were presented, like what I'm used to.

    Now when I boot to Windows 10, it goes right to the Desktop.

    Then I tried loading the Classic shell and found out I had an old and incompatible version. So I went to the Classic Shell homepage and found a Green Line there, where I could download the latest version for Windows 10.

    So now I have Windows 10 booting to my classic desktop..... just like my Windows XP or Windows 8.1.
    I hope that helps.

    But, try as I may, I still don't have Windows Mail working. There has to be a way. ???
