    And I'll wager it'll be created by a third party.
    That could happen. IMHO, It won't be Microsoft that does it though.

    Speaking of the Control Panel, it seems to take quite a while to come up on my computer. Since I get impatient, I click on it a few more times to "hurry it up". So then I have multiple copies of the thing, heh. But if I click on one of the god mode shortcuts still working, it comes up instantly.

    And THEN just try to find something like Device Manager in the new Settings folder. Instead, they hid it on the right click on the Start button. Time to find out where all the new shortcuts are and create a new god-mode list.

    BTW, I was at the Otis elevator test rig (30 stories tall!) doing a calibration of their HP test equipment (they even had a calibrated hammer with a cal sticker on it!) and I asked about elevator buttons. It turns out that Otis deliberately ignores anything after the first push. "Otherwise", he said, "we will be creating monkey like behavior of rewarding pushing the button a whole bunch of times to make the elevator stop here first."

    A new OS that apparently can't generate a coloured Titlebar.
    Haha, tell me about it, the most basic features that were available all the way up until W7. Some stripped away in W8 (like resizing scroll bar, which could be fixed via reg hack) ... thanks to 8Forums, lol ... and now this in 10 where its all white and I can't tell the difference between a active and inactive window. Thanks MS!

    The feature is not a "colored titlebar", the feature is selectable themes that include customizing the color of the titlebar.

    Every feature has to be re-written in the new OS, and that takes time. This may seem basic, but they may have a lot of other features that are higher priority.
    I don't understand your post? How is the feature selectable themes that include customizing the color of the title bar? This was already there since W7, toned down in 8.1 and removed in W10 since build 10058. The only thing you can change is the color of the Start Bar with themes, either have it off (the black default) or on to reflect the color of your theme. Any other theme you choose the title bar is still white. See here how my theme is blue? Well my start menu is blue but my firefox is all white (instead of blue) because the colors don't change the title bar anymore. You are forced to see everything in white, which Microsoft removed in version 10058 for some unknown reason. It's very hard on the eyes. The only way is to 'hack it' if you will by adding in removed or hidden features (Edwin showed us on pg 25) which should be a standard part of Windows desktops. Why remove it? Is it offensive to tablets to change title bar color?

    Color options have been somewhat depreciated in Windows 10 Control Panel and Settings but, they still exist in the system.
    Best thing to do is add Shawn's 'Personalization Classic' options to your right click context menu:
    Thanks for that Edwin, I appreciate it. Sad that we have to add a special menu just to make some minor adjustments. Thanks for the theme as well.

    That is one way of doing it if you want to upgrade or do a clean install by overwriting your existing OS. JUST MAKE SURE TO BACKUP ALL YOUR FILES if you are going to do a new installation. It will get wiped out. But you don't have to put it on the USB flashdrive. It will be 10x SLOWER that way. Just leave the ISO on your hard drive, right click on it and select "Mount". Then double-click "Setup" from the next pop-up window. You can skip updates if you want.
    This is on a computer where I keep nothing important so I'll go ahead and do the clean install. Thanks to everyone for your response.

    So far the buggy start pinning has gotten better and i've found apps can be pinned to start. However, once you've done that and go to download another app and pin it, it won't pin. I have to delete all the apps off the start screen and start a new start screen with all the apps I want pinned.


    Another wish is that they incorporate the hacked ability to change the title color or at least have it match the accent you pick. Looks much nicer with it on my machines.


    Also, if they could make tablet mode task bar fully transparent or option to hide it, this would complete the "bug squashing" as far as the ux to me.


    Then there's the dark theme in Edge and Music, and I can get it hacked onto settings and store, but not implemented as a toggle in settings, store, outlook or file explorer. Why are they half-assing dark capabilities?


    WTF, MS?


    W T F?!




    Please, everyone, for the life of your battery and our eyes, take a moment to go to the feedback app and upvote all the dark, email, calendar, file, explorer, settings, store categories you see that apply so they'll take notice.

    I have clean-installed this build from the official MS ISO. At last, I was very happy to see a new ISO! After approx. ten hours of usage, and after installing the majority of the applications I use on Win 7, my main OS, I'd like to say that I really like this build. It works fine on my system and I enjoy it.

    Here are a couple of bugs (?), though, that I have observed, at least on my system - fully shown in my specs :

    1) Still there is "an application preventing my computer from shutting down or rebooting". Nine out of ten times, or 99 out of 100, this application is the "Program Manager". It proceeds after a couple of seconds or if I force it. I do not know why this is happening. Any ideas?

    2) The text blurriness in all those Windows components, like the Device Manager, the Task Scheduler, the Windows Firewall, the Resource Monitor, and many more, still exists at 125% "zoom". I'm not expecting them to correct/fix this, I have to mention it though.

    3) When trying to "Change only the text size" from Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display, after setting for example the Title bars and the Menus to "12", when I set the next available feature to "12", as well, the text in the menus returns to "9", or anyway decreases its size. Does this happen to you?

    These are the things I have observed so far. But I really like this build!

    Open Settings, search for Clear Type, select it, enable Clear Type and go through the setup process which asks you to compare various texts, which looks better. An easy process with sometimes quite amazing effect .

    Thank you, Kari. I'm going to do that now. This pale gray font on graywhite background is killing my poor eyes.

    Thanks for the suggestion, Kari, but I don't think it will fix it. I have not tried Clear Type on this build but on the previous ones it did not have any effect. It's just that Windows 10 do not like any of my monitors. I'm beginning to realize I'll have to live with this, and thank God I'm not spending my days and nights in the menus of all those Windows components. IF you have some free time, and the pleasure, you can read my thread "blurry text" referring to this issue in detail.

    Thank you.
