    I used Visual Studio 2008.
    VS 2008 is no longer in Mainstream support, and will be completely end of lifed by 2018. I wouldn't expect much, if any traction on a VS2008 issue in Windows 10.

    And this is a preview OS....Give feedback to MS
    How should I? Do they have an official way or just the Windows Feedback app which they'll probably never read?

    Windows uses some tracing mechanics which internally uses a threadpool. It looks like it is created even before kernel32.dll gets loaded. I'll let you know if I find out more.

    threadpool is used not only for tracing subsystem, but it is also used to parallelize static imports (i.e. - the dlls your app depends on). Looks like it's the new default to have a few threads hanging around even if you don't use any multithreading in your applications at all.

    Some DLLs create their own worker threads and this may be what is observed. If the thread does not access anything that is not private to the DLL there is no possibility of conflict.

Hi I don't quite get the add desktops thing. I open the desktop and add another one, then what. If I put different Icons on it does it persist indefinitely so two different used could have different desktops? If it's going to do that it...
