    Wild guess, cause I don't know. Is Inking and Typing have to do with Touch Screen? And MS is talking about On Screen stuff, like Pen Handwriting AI and all that gobbledygook?
    No, everything you type and what keys you press. Like a keylogger, a bit like an Alexa but the older version

    Well, in that case..... I'm happy and glad and relieved it can't be sent! Count your blessings!

    One poorly implemented feature is skip&sketch. It seems it is by default installing an earlier version ie one without delay actions and if you go to Store to update, it seems you are up to date.
    I have just opened the Store and checked for updates. I got an update for Snip & Sketch to version 10.1807.2286.0 which has the 3 or 10 second delay.

    Thanks flhthemi. Used update assistant and all is now well. Though I do now have a 3.5gb folder called ESD on my C: drive, not sure what it's for though, any thoughts ?
    ESD folder contains all the files necessary to reset your PC to factory defaults. It is the most important one in DiskCleanup and the one where you have to think twice before deleting it. One can always use Windows Installation Media to reset, but in general, it is recommended not to delete it.

    Yes but you've either Macrium-ed or taken a system image or as you say, have the installation media. That way is not fast; in fact I almost clean installed after the upgrade took about 40 minutes.

    Thanks. I just got 17MB extra of Groove Music that I'll never use. Sticky Notes does not want to update, it's happy where it's at.

    Repeated requests tell me that I am 'Good to Go' and all my Microsoft Store Apps are up to date.
    Yeah same here, the reset option actually added the app to the Windows Store applications update list but it will not find any update for it.. perhaps something region based, firewall or even OEM/Retail is preventing it from updating to v3.0

    This makes me wonder, what decides exactly which app will be presented in the updates list? I have some additional apps that aren't there like Realtek Audio Console (appears in the store) for example.
    Maybe only what is installed from the store goes into the update list.

    Thanks, I just gave up and shutted it all down just what you did. Maybe it's just better this way...

    All I am saying is to use caution with regard to this folder. I have deleted it myself already. The problem with system image backup is that by the time you'll need to reset to factory defaults, the backup might not be there (available) anymore. It all depends for how long one keeps his/her backups. I don't have backups for last July 2018 due to storage capacity.

    I've been running this build on my 2 laptops since release. Haven't had any issues as of yet. But haven't really been looking for any issues either.

    Will check ReliabilityHistory and Event viewer this weekend to see if there are any possible issues to fix.

    After upgrading to the latest version of Windows 10 (17763.1), I am finding the following bugs for which I don't have a solution yet:
    -After opening Edge, I cannot use any of the buttons at the top right corner of the window, be it the minimize (-) , the maximize or the close (X) buttons to do anything. They just don't respond. In order to circumvent the problem, I always have to right-click the title bar and execute those functions. This is not the ideal way to do things.


    -In file explorer, when I left-click on a folder or a sub-folder in the navigation pane, the whole explorer window just closes by itself. The solution I found to bypass this difficulty is to right-click the folder or sub-folder and open it in a new window. One cannot definitely work this way when it comes to folders, sub-folders and documents.


    -Lastly, I have noticed for a long time now that whenever there is an upgrade, all my external HDDs attached to my computer are appearing twice in the navigation pane. For this one, I have found the solution in the registry.
