    Thanks for posting that again, essembe. Yes, that too. Much better than going off site to what was a heavy-laden web page that TC linked. At least for me on the old Acer. IE and Edge both ate up as much as 600MBs of mem with all the ads on it.

    BTW, great job on the video tutorial!

    Yes. Great job with all the video tutes and the beginning and end presentation of the Windows Ten Forum logo coming together from the multicolored dots, then exploding at the end. Very modern and well done!

    Well, I just got 10 and am still getting used to it. Love it so far, much improved over the first T.R. I tried imho. Having said all that, I use Control Panel very often (yes I have the God mode shortcut enabled too). I like the grouping and the "overview" for want of a better word for the different selections in C.P. and think it would be a shame to lose it. My 2 cents worth.

    IMHO they should have kept control panel the way it is and added the extra stuff inside of control panel.

    They probably want to make it more tablet-like so tablet users feel better, but they forget that Windows is a desktop OS and so the classic Control Panel should be given priority. Tablet users hardly need to adjust any setting, so why give them a priority?

    This is not true anymore
    Windows is a Desktop, Tablet, Phone, Xbox (and anything else I might have forgotten) OS now, so it needs to cater to all these devices, ok possibly not the Xbox as much as others, but its still a Win 10 device

    Not very wise, just using common sense which Microsoft unfortunately doesn't.
