    To even open the Feedback App, I would have to enable online log in (which I refuse to do).

    Strangely enough, when I first installed b10041 I was able to open the Feedback App.
    I was planning to do the MS suggested missions.
    Now I can't.

    I'll check to see if the same thing happens in IE11.

    I refuse to use Chrome (whenever I have a choice).
    Unfortunately I do need to use it to check websites (Web Design course).
    I use a VM with multiple browsers (IE10, FF37, Chrome, Maxthon 3, Opera) for that though.

    Javascript is more likely the culprit - why Chrome doesn't suffer that same issues beats me
    Google needs to record that info for their databases.

    It works in W10TP b10041 using IE11.

    PM behaves even worse in W10TP b10041.
    I can't even stop the page from redirecting using the "Stop" button.

    I found a way to read ID3v2.4 tags on Windows File Explorer!

    1. Run Registry Editor (regedit.exe) and open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PropertySystem\SystemPropertyHandlers
    2. Right click on "SystemPropertyHandlers" and select Permissions... in popup menu.
    3. In opened window press Advanced button. In opened window press Change near Owner. In opened window enter Administrators in to Enter the object name to select, then press Check Names and then press OK. Double click on Administrators in Permission entries list. In opened window check Full Control in Basic permissions and press OK button. Press OK buttons two times, so you will return to main Registry Editor window.
    4. Now you can edit/delete values in this registry key, simple delete values with music files extensions supported by AudioShell and then, when you run AudioShell settings, it will appear in its supported extensions list and you can register AudioShell property and thumbnail handlers to work with this files. By deleting values from this registry key, you can add AudioShell support to: .mp3, .mp2, .asf, .wma, .wmv, .mp4, .m4v, .m4b, .m4p, .m4a, .wav and .3gp files. Delete the following values form the registry: .mp3, .mp4, .m4a, .wav
    5. Install AudioShell (latest version 2.3.1). After install, go to AudioShellís settings and make sure that these are checked: .mp3, .mp4, .m4a, .wav
    6. Restart your PC. After restarting, you should be able to see ID3v2.4 tags on Windows File Explorerís columns

    I tried this fix. Unfortunately embedded artwork still isn't displayed in file explorer details pane for id3v2.4. All text related tags now appear, but artwork does not. So this fix does not work for embedded artwork.

    I tried this and it did not work well for me.
    I deleted just the mp3 value from the registry key -- how do i restore it?
    I tried using Windows Restore to revert to a system a few days earlier, but it failed.
    (said there were files it could not access, most likely due to my virus protection program)
    (I can make my kaspersky protection inactive, but it is still running and apparently in the way)
    Is there a way to restore just the registry key for mp3? What data do I put in there?
