    With build 10122, Windows 10 finally starts coming together


    With the most recent Windows 10 preview release, Microsoft made a big jump in build numbers, going from 10074 to 10122. And as long as you don't have an AMD graphics adapter, the just-released build 10122 has a lot to recommend it.

    I've now had a couple days to work with this release, trying out a variety of upgrade scenarios on a range of devices: desktop PCs, laptops, a Surface Pro 3, and a couple of 8-inch tablets. For the most part, these installs have gone well, with a few hiccups mostly cured by a restart. My Surface Pro 3 didn't hang at 18 percent of the install, as it has for some (one fix is here).

    Here are a few first impressions....

    That was my thought too. I'm running it now, pretty much set up the way I want it, and NO Classic Shell. Not yet anyway.
    I even have Windows Mail set up for my email and I've installed my own Sound Files, so W-10 sounds like I want it to.
    It does have the ability to become the OS you want and need it to be. That is, if you have the patients to find all the hidden settings and then get them set the way you want.

    However, I can't do a dang thing with Edge. Still using Firefox.
    Using Sync, it now has all my Bookmarks, settings and all that good stuff.

    Many things are still hard to find, but once you find them, the settings are pretty straight forward.

    happy Memorial Day!

    Same here. Not good form. It grabs pdf files as well.

    I have now changed the defaults to my choice.

    I guess we are all doing a fair bit of hunting for settings! Good old control panel is still there, though!

    We'll get there in the end!!

    I thought the old control panel is going to be gone in the released version.

    Probably will. But we still need it for a while longer. One setting I couldn't find was Task Scheduler, for example.

    No, it will still be there, but many items in it have moved to Settings. Just not everything yet.

    Task Scheduler is not in Control Panel, it's an MMC snap-in. You can get to it from the Administrative Tools in Control Panel, but you can also get to it by typing "task scheduler" in the search, or under Administrative Tools in All Apps.

    You can create a Desktop shortcut to the control panel by just creating a NEW Shortcut with this syntax:
    C:\Windows\System32\control.exe

    Or maybe you'd like a shortcut to "System" ?
    Or maybe a shortcut to "Restore".

    Find the RUN box and all the old haunts are available to us.
    Things like, MSCONFIG, Regedit, and Services.msc are all right where they used to be, and I use them all.

    I'm on 10122 right now, and it's amazing how much of XP and later OS's is still right where I'd expect it to be.
    The lack of a Start Menu is about the only real draw back. I wish they would give that back to us, as an option, if nothing else.
    Most of the performance tweaks I used on XP still work on Win-10. What was old, is new again. (or something like that)

    Cheers mates!

    @Mystere - True, a very loose/wrong use of the word 'setting'.

    Found the link in All Apps but it hasn't been activated! No doubt it will be sorted later.

    Tried the search with 'task scheduler' and it only came up with web links.

    Anyway, I don't have a problem finding it and I am sure the holes indicated above will be plugged later.

    Cheers.
