    Even the simple features, such as 'Sound Recorder' seem much more sophisticated.
    Sound Recorder allows tagging and editing, etc.
    It also saves recordings to Documents folder 'Sound Recordings'

    Hi there

    What is this "Cortana" stuff -- I thought it was some incorrectly spelled version of a Ford Car much beloved by "Boy Racers" in the 60's and 70's in the UK.

    Cheers

    It's a new icon in the "All Apps" (Settings).

    Naw, it's the same. It works the way it's supposed to, I think but I ...
    So it's still broken then.
    I think it may be working the way 'they' intend, but I don't care for it. I don't really use Snapping, I minimize/maximize, and have 'Move To...' and 'Copy To...' in the right click context menu.
    However, now that 'Sticky Corners' is (apparently) working again in 9901, snapping quads will work properly even with multiple monitors.

    Modern Apps, on the other hand, snap to all kinds of different sizes, depending on the app, I guess!

    You don't need Snapping on a system with multiple monitors.

    It's almost indispensable on a single monitor setup or laptop.
    I use Window Snapping almost everyday.

    Window Snapping was one of the things I really missed when I used my previous Linux installs.
    I was very pleased when they introduced it in Linux Mint 17 MATE.

    The only things I liked about W10, compared to W7 were:
    • Horizontal Snapping (100% w, 50% h)
    • The new Command Prompt features

    MS broke Window Snapping in the first update after b9841 (and they still haven't fixed it).

    How long before they break the Command Prompt improvements too?

    Why would I use a crippled Metro App (on my desktop) when I can run a real program?

    Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16281

    It looks like installing the leaked Build 9901 will break Insider Program Updates.
