Windows 10: I Don't like Windows Ten. Solved

    I am really loving Windows 10 so far. There are a few glitches... I tend to check the event logs regularly to see what is going and there are certainly some issues for Microsoft to tweak with updates, but overall the experience is better and faster than Windows 8.1.
    I did have a heart in mouth moment when I had to do a clean install and by accident completely deleted the partitions on my SSD drive! Very pleased that a simple DISKPART process solved the issue and the fresh install went fine (and quick).

    I do think MIcrosoft will quite quickly update the Mail and Calendar apps - it seems strange that functionality like disabling conversation view (which I hate) seems to be gone. I, like a lot of people, use the metro app for personal (or secondary) email and Outlook for exchange services and primary email addresses. Its no good making Mail so 'light' thats its hard to use.

    Been just over a week so far and I'm loving Windows 10. I've not encountered any bugs at all.

    yeah i'm loving windows 10 so far actually and i've been pretty hardcore on 7. i finally found a background changer for the login got rid of that ugly windows hero wallpaper. and I have found 2 modification for the title bar i made them grayish black more like windows 7. one is a theme aerolite and the other is a modify a theme. so looks wise its coming together for me. wish i could change my boot logo like 7 i'm sure that will come along eventually. and cant wait for the service release 1 to come hoping alot of bugs get fixed then i will install it on my desktop. the only other thing i found annoying was the main things i had to turn off to make windows more private its like send this to Microsoft and send that and all the other privacy things i'm sure there more modication i will have to do for that as well.

    OK Gang,
    From one who is usually very critical of Microsoft. I got the message the download was ready. I clicked on the OK to start. A black screen came up, I waited for ten minutes and forced a shut down. Evidently Microsoft saves that information. The next time I booted up a large screen came up stating the download for Windows 10 was ready. I took a chance and pressed OK. It started right away. They have a cute way they do it, very relaxing. The only thing is it takes a very long time, so be very patient. Also at the end the screen went dark, nothing else, no message to wait. My mouse was still there, the computer was on, it hadn't been shut down. After an hour I forced it to shut down and rebooted. It came up and is great. I was worried about loosing all my icons on the screen, they all came up. I was worried about my Norton and Malwarbytes, they both worked very well. My only suggestion to Microsoft is tell us when the download is completed, don't leave us sitting there for an hour. Also, be sure and right click the start button to get to all the back stage items from Windows 7. Have fun.

    I tried 8 and 8.1 hated them. I went straight from 7 to 10-no looking back.

    I like the hero background for the login screen, in fact, I'm using one of the other default wallpapers for my desktop right now... even though all my old backgrounds came through during the upgrade. I like the nice HD quality of the default wallpapers.

    I guess its all in the taste but for me no thanks I rather have a plain color for the login screen even my wallpaper i always change it. i don't need some background with windows logo i know i'm using windows thanks for showing me desktop and login screen lol. i'll stick to me anime hd girl wallpaper soothing to my eyes. and with my login screen change and lock screen which there is a possible way to remove useless for a laptop and desktop i have a FOXHOUND special ops theme going on. its great when i'm doing my job and people see that on my laptop there like foxhound special forces government lol

    Thanks darkschneider94 appreciate the links. Also, your choice of background jogged me, because my middle son is an airborne Ranger (75th) and has been deployed for the last 13 years. The Rangers will provide my logo. Thanks again
