Windows 10: Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14971 for PC Insider
I totally agree. I have Recently Added and Most Used disabled on all my computers.
Installed Build 14971 with no problems. However this time I'm using the Windows Versions of VMware WS and Virtualbox
@Wynona: in the case you want to to get rid of them all, you can just disable them in Settins / Personalization / Start
I mean strange in the sense that I think (my personal subjective opinion) that an operating system, any operating system should have defaults so that it makes finding features and apps as easy as possible for an average new user. Especially three of those apps (Get Started, Feedback Hub and File Explorer) are in my opinion extremely important for a new user, so important that their place as placeholders in this list in question is well justified.
Anyway, they are just placeholders, A) to show that such a list is available in Start, and B) that the list has place for six apps. All default apps in that list can be removed / replaced or even better the whole list can be removed. A simple tutorial search here at Ten Forums had shown how you can remove the list in three seconds: Start Menu Most Used Apps - Add or Remove in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
The above put short: Complaining about something that takes a couple of seconds to remove / disable goes in my books to category unnecessary complaints and non-issues. Especially when this feature serves average users seeing Windows 10 Start first time.
I agree and understand that a OS should have default apps. Putting apps in the Most Used in the start menu on a new install IMHO is a two edge sword. One that it helps a total newbie to get started and two that it helps persuade user to use or at least try a choice selection of MS apps and why I compared it to advertising. As for complaining that wasn't me. I feel that it is a good idea for MS to help a newbie get started using Windows 10 and it's so easy to turn off if someone wants to.
That's what I did, Andre.
BSOD ever-time a new Build starts to download
I have a year old HP Envy 23 All in One. I have been testing and on the fast build since the start with no issues on this PC. But starting about 4 builds back, as soon as a new build drops and it starts the download process it BSOD. Most of the time, I have to delete the $Windows... folder and restart the process a few times to get it to finish. Nothing I can really dial in on. This last build I could not past the BSOD. I know the best solution is a clean install but in case someone has seen this issue and has a trick or two to try.
I am also on the fast build at work but failed to grab the ESD file. Will wait or the next.
Thanks for any advice.
If you have BSOD data, you could post it in appropriate section. Gurus there mainly analyze non Insider builds, but (just guessing) they won't mind
You can grab latest slow ring ISO from MS, if you want to perform a clean install. I did a clean install this build after couple of builds showing some (minor) problems. Looks like these problems accumulate, which is kind of normal at upgrades...
Do you have an SD card installed in the computer? That card kept me from installing and getting bSODAfter install, update driver for SD card.
Date time sync error still persists in this build for both Windows Time and NIST. Please let us know in BIG BOLD letter when this is fixed. Rummaging around for a a third party solution
