    @Cbarnhorst: Thank you for replying.

    And what's about, for example, start menu tiles order and grouping? Will they be preserved?

    Yes.

    The repair install (aka in-place upgrade) preserves settings, files and apps regardless of the media used to do the repair. Any installation of Windows started from the desktop using media is an in-place upgrade. If you are upgrading from the same version of Windows to the same version of Windows it is also called a repair install. It replaces all the Windows files on the System Drive using the media as the source for the new files but does not disturb any other files or settings.

    The default should be to keep both apps and personal files. You click both radio buttons if they are not already black. Unless you don't want to keep apps. With an in-place upgrade you normally would keep everything.

    Your Windows apps will be "upgraded" but your third-party apps will not be touched if you chose to "keep everything." The choices only concern your non-Microsoft data. You probably want to keep those. The upgrade-in-place will take care of the windows store. If by "windows store" you mean apps acquired from the online Windows Store, then there is a set of DISM commands for that.

    Just keep everything. If you don't like the results you can always repeat the process with only one of the options selected.
