    Thanks, you've gone above and beyond the call.

    Maybe it is the difference between Local and MSaccount ... something for me to try anyway.

    Yeah, XP to Win10 is a learning curve. I tell people Right click everything ... everywhere - nothing is where you expect it.

    That's what I did for a few months going from Win7 to Win8. I was more frustrated by not finding things where they were (especially network stuff) than by the cosmetic changes ... I was not put off by the missing start button and actually liked the Win8.1 Windows menu (I refuse to call it Start)

    .. if you start with the Windows start menu - you'll soon stop. My view..
