    I got one asking me how I liked using my touch pad in 10. I'm on my desktop. I have no touch pad or even a touch screen. I have them on my laptops and tablet. They're still running Windows 8.1.1
    don't have the start menu set to tablet mode by any chance do you !!

    I wonder what they do with the answers. I have been complaining about 1 showstopper since day 1, but there is no fix yet.
    Hmmmmmmmmmmm! Don't just love a mystery. . .

    I don't know, but, just for kicks, I complained numerous times about these crappy test builds being so hush-hush, then all of a sudden Gabe started leaking little hints on Twitter!

    I'm not in tablet mode. I guessing the questions are either random or something I did triggered a wrong response from MS.

    There is no support of the new UI in high definition themes (which I need because of my bad eyes). The first picture shows the W10 result of the update page. The second picture shows the same page in W8.1 where the support is perfect.

    Whs;

    I have bad eyes as well. I also can't stand the brightness. I did an interesting experiment with the current build but went back to windows 7. If you have your color and themes set to way you want them in windows 7. Instead of doing a clean install, do an upgrade install using either windows update or iso image. Caution. the application background color will be permanent even if themes or other colors is changed. The taskbar will also change to a different color

    Thanks for the heads up. I run the TP in virtual and don't really want to ruin my Windows 7. I rum all my 8.1 devices in high def and besides that working very well it also looks very nice. I assume they will fix that one day in 10 - no reason 10 would have less capability than 8.1.

    In 7 the color settings are much more difficult (less intuitive) to manage than in 8.1 - I think. But maybe that's only me.

    Where the high def really helps is on small screens. I have an Asus x250 and an Asus T100. Those I could not run without high def.

    Maybe you are the only person complaining about it?
