    Will the anniversary upgrade retain all third party programmes (and their settings) that have been previously installed ?
    Yes, if you "update" instead of doing a clean install. I will probably do a clean install, but that's just me.

    Also, what happens as regards drivers ?
    Hopefully, driver issues will be solved before the Anniversary Edition is released. However, there will be some that will continue to have driver issues. There's just no way that Microsoft can cover every computer, especially those that are highly customized and built to "off the chart" specifications.

    This is a potentially problematic issue for me on one of my laptops because W10 attempts to install an unsuitable driver for the wireless card. The result is that in the final stages of a W10 install, the buggy driver suddenly starts causing massive system interrupts such that the final few percent of the install take several hours. It then takes an hour or more to manually open device manager and disable it, its that bad and slow running.
    Dumb question . . . have you given feedback on the issue? Also, I think you can open a Microsoft ticket; as well, it's up to Dell or Acer to provide (to Microsoft) the correct drivers for your laptop.

    I think that one's the $64,000.00 question. So far, Microsoft hasn't left my Power settings alone. Not drivers, but very irritating, to say the least.

    Thanks Wynona. I think that providing the 'update' continues to work as well as W10 does now then I might stick with that, certainly on the Acer anyway. I'm really curious and interested to see how it all pans out tbh. The Dell, well I might clean install on that at some point as there were zero issues clean installing onto a blank unallocated drive.

    Not a dumb question yes, I've reported it several times and given details of the alternative driver that does work. Its the Acer that has this driver issue but... its only 5 months shy of being 10 yrs old so no chance of a new driver although as I found out, there are some out there that do work OK. The wifi card is an Atheros 5005G ? from memory.

    For each newer build until now strictly waiting for the RS1 for the main and skipping the few remaining Insider builds the software not driver portion for the sound card not being an onboard audio chipset but older model expansion that so far has only seen 8.1 x64 Support 1.2 available for download and then with the web updater then finds the 10 driver set is needed simply to get the main console reinstalled.

    Pain in the kister constantly tending to that every 2-3 days lately! That's one item that gets trashed every time howvever while everything except the UAC slider remains unchanged! So far since the last clean install going through every other build since all other programs have remained intact and run without any unexpected problems other then what they would have seen.

    It was the Threshold 2 update that went bonkers in a couple of months when not having the main build seeing each newer build and hopefully won't see the same with the RS1 going on soon. A couple of Windows sounds playback problems for certain sounds assigned to a couple of functions came up on a couple of builds but resolved since. In comparison having been booted in 7 over the last few days has only further shown 7 is running buggier then 10 while that install is due to be replaced anyways.

    Thanks Tairiku I quickly looked in group policy but I don't see the option... so I'm guessing its for insider builds only.

    That's apparently correct. The setting isn't showing on either of my 10 Pro th2 boxes, but is on another with 14390.

    Core Insider Program@CoreInsiderProg 8h8 hours ago
    Today build 14394 got compiled. There's a catch though. Only internal labs received it while _release stayed at 14393.Guess what it means.

    Windows doesn't get drivers from the manufacturers sites, not directly. The manufacturers submit drivers to Microsoft to be delivered via Windows update. On clean install drivers are installed from the driver store in the install media. Then more may be installed via Windows update. If a manufacturer doesn't submit a driver for your hardware to Microsoft, you will have to install it manually, from that manufacturers web site download. On an upgrade , from one build to another, I would think your currently installed drivers would be carried over. Unless they are incompatible? I don't know for sure what actually happens. I haven't paid enough attention to say. I don't do an upgrade unless I have to. If I can avoid it, I avoid it and do a clean install. Going from one OS to another like 7 to 10, I would imagine is a different scenario. Windows 10 drivers are likely installed. Similar to what happens on a clean install. Somebody that works in IT can probabaly give you some better info.
    My Surface received 2 updates last week and one was the Intel Graphics driver. But the Surfaces are different since they aren't associated with an OEM. So my guess is they will update up to the point to a point that it's ready for the major anniversary update.
