    Desktop Window Snapping seems to work correctly for:
    • 4x "width 50%, height 50%"
    • 2x "width 50%, height 100%"
    • 2x "width 50%, height 50%", "width 50%, height 100%"


    I cannot make Window Snapping work for:
    • 2x "width 100%, height 50%"
    • 2x "width 50%, height 50%" + "width 100%, height 50%"
    Quadrilateral snapping continues to work for desktop apps, but not for Modern Store apps. This is a must if they are forcing opening on the desktop. Perhaps solely in the Modern environment they do.

    LOL! Ironically I can get a desktop and Store app to snap 100%/50% horizontally. BTW. in the building industry the horizontal measurement always precedes the vertical. e.g. Windows, doors, walls, etc.

    More key combos are working in this build. WinKey/Arrows for app sizing/moving and Alt/F4 now works to close Store apps. That's a big plus for me. A couple of more builds and I just may like this thing, although I think it's a step backward into the 20th century. At least the Start Menu is Modern, though.

    Apparently you can uninstall the Bing Search engine, right click/uninstall 'Search' app from all apps.
    Nice find, Edwin! I see it's a Modern app now in this build. What's left after uninstall?

    Finally had it all done. Quick check showed drivers for GPU installed pretty dated MS drivers instead of AMD's. TV card also inappropriate drivers. All other seem to be as before.
    Quite a procedure, looks like Windows repair procedure. During install it accessed internet and downloaded something, no idea what. After installation, there was one important and one Recommended which turned out to be driver for GPU but this time AMD 14.11 which is not appropriate for my GPU either, had to respectfully decline it.

    Not got the update yet, might get it downloaded by end of the month, lol

    Anyway, hows Onedrive working for people who use it
    Reading a few complaints about it, is it true you can only see onedrive files in explorer if you choose to keep them offline, I like being able to see all onedrive files in explorer and select which ones to be offline and which online only

    You click on the icon, it does nothing; other search locations don't seem to open the Bing thing either.

    Glad you got 'er up and running, Count.

    earlier I had my first "Bad Pool Header" blue screen and reboot on this old Acer ever! It booted up again fine and running great for about an hour without incident.

    What about search in File Explorer?

    I think MS finally realized making the Title Bar too big cuts off pages; re-sizing blanked out now

    'Action Center' becomes 'Security and Maintenance'.
