    The scroll bar does not appear unless you happen to move the mouse over it,

    It's like the Apps scroll bar then - the one that drives me crazy (on, off, on, off, on, off)
    They had a lot going into the January release, they'll get to these things in the next few releases.

    Thanks

    Yep before the actual install windows is just using a bare minimum driver for everything sort of like safe mode with networking so not everything highlights as it should,
    But they made an extra attempt to integrate the disappearing scroll bar just for good measure

    Hiding it to somewhat force making a Microsoft account because that is all that's on the list your information to make a new Microsoft account
    It's really petty.
    I did mention I got a popup after installing Why I didn't make a Microsoft account
    Left feedback
    I'd say it's worse than "petty", it's "despicable".
    MS are lucky I didn't' receive that message or they would have got some "feedback".

    I guess that is another function that is broken on my install.

    Uhh ... Saying Computers running Windows is different from saying Windows Hardware.
    I'll accept it as shorthand, but I'll never use the phrase
    The point being, they already have existing systems in place running Windows, and are not running Linux.

    It's like saying you have a Windows box... which many people say, even though it could obviously run many OS's.

    Three Corel pkgs - isn't there also a Corel Draw Essentials (maybe that's Painter now). I often thought about trying it, but that kept getting put on the back burner.
    I deliberately left the "Essentials" packages out, which would also include Photoshop essentials, and what not.. there are tons of permutations of that. Corel went on a buying spree.. they now own a number of packages that used to be owned by others.. Paint Shop Pro, for instance, was once owned by Jasc.

    I also didn't include fairly powerful free/shareware, like Paint.NET (which certainly isn't as powerful as the gimp, but is much easier to use).

    I settled on Gimp until I decide to put out cash for a new version of PSP. I'll probably just take the original image to one of the children and say - do your magic.
    PSP 4 or 5 is, I think at least 10 years old.. may not even work in modern Windows... and may not support modern formats like PNG..

    It's not a bug ... it's a feature!

    Yeah, I 'understood' the first time. Just asked for clarity - thanks for the clarity.

    I misspoke on an earlier post - it was Corel Draw we used at work, not Adobe Photoshop.
    And to this day, I can't seem to refer to PSP as Corel PSP, I still call it Jasc PSP :)

    Probably closer to 20 years old (first used PSP on Win95 or Win98). I think PNG was supported, but the last time I tried to install it was XP or Vista - there were issues just getting it to run (old application, plus Corel had acquired Jasc , making finding 'fixes' more difficult). I gave up trying to get an old version of PSP to run and started using Gimp.

    I think Mike was right, we're off the thread topic and should let the thread cycle back to the Windows installation issues. Thanks for all of the information in your posts.

    I got a few notifications for feedback. They didn't stay on screen long enough for me to read and click them though. There was barely enough time to even read the prompt before it just disappeared.

    You can change the time a notification is displayed in PC Settings -> Notifications

    I think the default is 5 seconds.

    Maybe next time, I've gone back to 8.1 on all PC's for now.
