    I'll also add, the Hey Cortana feature does seem to work when it's totally silent and you have no music playing, even if the mic is a decent distance away. Rather annoying is that Cortana, when speaking to her, it'll completely cut off ANY audio player you have going even if it's paused and not playing. Tad annoying.

    Agree, I think, the default expandable full screen desktop menu is a mess in build 9926.

    Your needs differ and the support you offer to others differs from what I do,
    setting up phones, office, mobile services / devices and synchronization etc...

    My world is focused on a single user home desktop computer,
    the microsoft management console and UI customization.

    There is obviously a need for improvement with all the social media phone features.
    There is obviously a major flaw with the default expandable desktop menu.

    Since the option to go with a resizable desktop menu exists, (not the expandable full screen desktop version)
    one can use an optionally tiled resizable desktop menu or switch to the Windows 10 start screen.
    At the moment, I am liking a boot to the apps view.

    I always only go with a "local account" as I do not sync,
    do not use windows phones or mobile devices. I do not use cloud storage, no wireless devices,
    no social media activity, no messaging services or any type of office locally or online subscription.

    If I understand correctly, you are right. The default expandable desktop menu needs work.

    This PC using 10 build 9926 boots to this start screen at the moment.

    You know, the thing I thought back when it was revealed how Windows 10's updating method of updating the entire build would put and end to this scenario.

    All I have to think about is literally this... :)

    I'd love to see the newer 10xxx builds here soon, things are just buggy and already got my first BSOD today.

24770 If you’re one of those quaint people who still uses ‘physical media’ to install new versions of operating systems, Windows 10 could have a big shock in store for you: USB drives replacing the clunky old reinstallation DVDs of yore. Source
I finally installed Win10 on one of my PC's. My first impression is its Windows 8, but in my case without metro. I like the Start8, which makes Win 8 work like Win 7 better than the start menu in Win 10. Jack
Just once it would be nice to see a problem free install.... Thoughts...???
