    That only happens if you choose Skip Ahead or the Fast ring (aka Active development of Windows + Fast), if you choose the Release Preview ring (aka Just fixes, apps and drivers), you will receive the build .167 (CU KB4469342).
    I'm afraid it's a little too late, Leo. It was already "getting things ready" when I stopped it. Everything but "Resume" is now grayed out, and doesn't work.

    " try a repair install "..............its the last option , besides I rolled back to about 4 weeks ago , went fine , only in a few minutes all these items were back in the context-menu.............!!! (???)
    shexview could disable some items ; pin to start, advanced share, compatiblity.
    Only two left ; Open File Location and the Library ( with list and icons )........
    The tweak from Brink does not work , removing goes fine , but after reboot its back..................

    Swarfega I'm running version 1809 OS build 17763.134 is this the one having issues with HP printers ? I have been fighting with my HP printer wasn't sure if it was on my end or Win 10. Any more info on the HP printer issue ?
    I've been running 17763.134 since its initial release with no problems whatever to report. I have a network printer at home--an HP 5740--and am having no problems with it. My wife is also running 1809 1763.134--and ditto. I will say this, however: some of HP's printer drivers are problematic. These days, the only way I can reliably install and run my printer is to set it up and configure it via HP Smart. It's much faster--much--than the rather arcane procedure the standard HP drivers invoke--I cannot even get the "connect" module of the regular drivers to even find my printer on the network--even after I feed it the correct IP address! I've noticed this for quite awhile. I highly recommend HP Smart--much smaller footprint and it does the job better, imo. My regular HP drivers began showing problems with network connect several builds back, actually. There's no reason for me to use anything but HP Smart these days--try it if you haven't already...

    I'm not sure what is meant by 'GPT' partition. Maybe the EFI System Partition? Maybe the Microsoft reserved partition (the tiny 16 MB partition right after the EFI partition, which on my system is itself only 260 MB).
    "GPT" is simply the whole disk format structure which you select *before* you format and partition your disks--the newest and best, imo, as opposed to the very old MBR disk structure. Article.

    Here's my Macrum Reflect partition breakdown of my home box. Note that the only two drives checked are my C:/ drive and my H:/ drive--H:/ being the destination for my Macrum Reflect backup of C:/. Note that C:/ is composed of several partitions appropriately labeled, and that C:/ is but one partition on my GPT disk 1. Good thing is that when you first install Win10x64, it automatically sets up the partitions it needs for booting to drive c:/... When imaging c:/, I always use the Create an image of the partitions required to backup and restore Windows option, on the left side of the screenshot--that is automated, too! MR is highly recommended! Very fast, very good.

    Macrium Reflect Restore works wonders on taking my system back to before I blew it to smithereens! This partition will never see "Insider" again! Wynona done learnt her lesson!
