    What, there`s another build out, 10049 ? I have to hook my drive back up and re upgrade again ?

    I thought 10041 came out less then 2 weeks ago ?

    As far as the Start Menu is concerned, it's still a work in progress; it's doable, it works well enough for now and it's the closest we're going to get to what W7 and W8 purists were crying for.

    As far as Search is concerned:
    - as long as the items you're searching for reside in the User directory they will come up in results.
    - you'd have to modify Indexing Options if you want results from external drives and such, even then I'm not sure.

    As far as stuff not working, well...,
    if I rebuilt my lawnmower engine and didn't gap the spark plug properly, it may not work so well the first few times either.

    Give it time.

    Matter of opinion, fast or slow it's a preview

    I have given MS plenty of feedback but all of it probably goes into a bucket bit.

    Actually, BunnyJ it is not exactly the start screen but you can get real close to it. Click on the start button and then click on the arrows by the power button. I would call it the expandable start screen.

    Bye bye Start menu, bye bye "all apps", which are not all in the new start when you hit the left corner. I see 88 apps instead of 175 (give or take).

    When you scroll down in the apps (my god, this takes for ages) and hit START MENU, go get Windows Explorer.

    Any special reason? if you hit Explorer on the taskbar you get the same....

    Who wants to scroll 4-5 times down to arrive at Explorer?

    You open the start on the left and can get a full screen of it with nothing in it. So why not put all the apps there, instead of what one gets now..... There is absolutely no reason for that.

    i am adding.....the "Web and Windows search" does not work. Store does not work. Bio does not work......

    When hitting het left corner one gets a black box with search in it, which you cannot use, so why put it there?

    Had to vent....

    Jeff
    Scrolling makes me tired as well black box with search functions when restarted, this build is quite nice, much better than the previous 10041, who knows, I might end up as another victim of 1st April before the end of the day

    I don't care about start screen anymore. It used to bug me during the early days of Windows 8 and I just got tired of it and never used since. Start screen is good... for mobile devices. Whenever I do a clean install, the first thing I do is install Chrome and Classic Shell.
    With classic shell, you don't actually lose the start screen, it's still there inside the Win-7-like start menu.
