    Thanks, the images posted here does them no justice though.

    LOTS of problems here

    Well, considering I am working with roughly 50% of my PC, I can only hope SR1 will do the trick. I have tried just about everything I've seen in these forums, and still have the following issues:

    • Edge doesn't work
    • Start menu does not work
    • Search doesn't work
    • Explorer crashes or gets hung up
    • In order to use Chrome, I have to run the "fix it" tool every time. I cannot click on the icon and run it from there
    • My jpegs won't open with Picture. I have to right click on them and use "open with" and choose MS Media
    • My scanning to PDF function no longer works
    • My second monitor no longer works

    Yeah, I'm sure I also missed a few other things.

    Yes, the upgrade from 8.x or 7 or from some earlier preview releases inherit the registry settings of the os upgraded from. Sadly, in a late preview, maybe even the TH1 branch, the developer left some registry code that prevented Windows Photo Viewer from being the preview Program of choice, even though it is all there, except the registry entries.

    In Windows 8.1, the Photos App is a laughably primitive viewer, with very few functions, apparently - at least the Windows 10 version is approaching usability.

    I don't like the way secondary windows do not always come to the foreground, expecially when they require some user interaction, and they remain hidden behind the main window, and the way the mouse moving off a window can cause the desktop to peek through; default settings are plain wrong in many cases.

    I'd have to agree it was released too soon and is not polished enough.

    Well I'm now in the process of installing 10 on my main rig now. Upgrading from 8.1.

    I'll post back any issues found, but really don't anticipate anything major. We'll see.

    Awesome news! Hopefully there is a fix of not being able to sign into my Microsoft account to enable all the awesome features in Windows 10.

    A lot of these weird issues are more of an exception then a rule and sounds like there are other things going on then simply bad coding by Microsoft.

    Not being able to sign into your Microsoft Account? Hmmm...

    Edge isn't exactly the finished article nor is it very customisable.

    Because Microsoft understands Edge is still a work in progress, and also may not work with all sites. This is a preventative measure as opposed to leaving people with un-workable browsers!

    Other than 10, when's the last time Microsoft shipped a new OS with 2 browsers??? Yeah, they could have straight left it off, but why not let people try it out? If it doesn't work, there's always Internet Explorer. What's the harm?

    In time I suspect IE will be dumped in place of Edge.

    My two cents

    I'm sort of surprised on the number of issues being found since the 29th. With as many Insiders testing the new OS you'd think all sort of system configurations would be challenged.

    Guess not, so bring on the new Release.
