    Thanx B... but, w10 started OK but, on booting up this morning it failed miserably & am back to w8.1.

    Will wait for the June launch

    EDIT: Unfortunately also in w8.1 all fotos do not open saying I do not have the correct permission.

    Could it be because I chose not to create an MS account? ....thanx ....nick

    I don't think the fact that you didn't create an MS account is the problem; it's more likely a permissions issue. I have no problem with opening photos in Windows 10 or 8.1.

    I'm not in Windows 8.1 ATM, but try going to Windows Accessories>Paint>Open and navigate to your photos. See if you can open them from there.

    I just tried it on Windows 10 Build 10130 and it works just fine.

    Thanx for all your help .....nick


    PS. I downloaded w10 & updated my w8.1 spare HD to w10. Worked OK & liked it that afternoon but, next morning would not boot up so I use my flash stick & got w8.1 back.

    I s that a usual thing with the BETA version?

    No, this is not usual with Windows 10 Technical Preview.

    I would suggest that you mark this thread "solved" and open a new one under "Installation and Setup", describing your problems with Windows 10 setup. You'll get more help in that group.

    When you post, tell us:

    Which build you downloaded and installed.
    How you installed it on your "spare" Windows 8.1 hard drive.
    And anything else you can think of.
