    That's and outdated version.
    My system shows 16.4.3528.331 and it may be old also.

    I installed it from there a couple of weeks ago and it has upgraded itself to same version as you. Guess that is the latest (last) version.

    If you install live essentials don't use the live screensaver. I didn't like the dull featureless screensaver for your photos that comes with windows 10 so I used the live photo gallery one as I loved it in windows 7. However it screwed up my desktop icons every time it kicked in by re arranging them (at least it did in my machine). That was a long time ago but I haven't touched it since.

    I got live essentials 2012 from here a couple of weeks ago...
    The post I pointed to earlier earlier...
    Windows Essentials 2012 will reach end of support on January 10th 2017
    ...contains a link to get the offline installer for version 16.4.3528.331 direct from Microsoft, not some third-part site.

    It isn't third party - it is MS - the same link in fact.

    It just has other languages not just English.

    My apologies, I saw that your link was to itechtics, but their links are indeed to Microsoft.

    @ Edwin: I see that you flagged your Windows Essential Folder with a cute heart shape--That's a good idea, how did you do it please?

    Alt+3 then Enter...
    for some reason it keeps it at the top of the hierarchy, the rest are 'bullets', Alt+7
    (The rest of the folders are hidden)

    EDIT: Alt+3 has to be done on the numeric keypad with NumLock on.

    Hello again!

    YAY! I installed WLPG without problems and began copy of the biggest W7 desktop pic folder & subfolders ( 128 GB). It's been running since Sunday night and all seemed well until yesterday when I noticed that progress meter is stuck at same pic. A closer look shows that only 45.8 GB have been copied.

    Any ideas what to do? Many of the W10 subfolders have been copied OK (size is same so I guess that means they made it).

    Thanks for your continued help!
