    1) I see the same after having tried builds 10158, 10159 and 10162 (all of them clean installed). Apart from the mysterious Program Manager (at least, I don't know what it is), I usually also spot DDE Server Window preventing my system from being shut down or restarted. They've improved the speed of those tasks a little in spite of it, though.

    2) I would have to try it, which brings me to...

    3) I believe it's working properly on my end. I'm not at my computer now, so I'll make sure to check out later. However, a bug I've noticed on and off is that after changing the general zoom of the system with a custom one (e.g. 115%), we can't change the size of different elements such as Title bars, icons, etc, because they are greyed out. I believe it's back in 10162.

    Apart from this, I've noticed a rather peculiar bug with this build (remember, clean install). I have the time format set at 24 hours. Ok, once I'm already with the system on and I've signed in to my Microsoft account, if I lock the screen I can see the time formatted correctly (24 hours). On the other hand, however, when I boot into Windows for the first time, I restart it, or if I sign out and then in back again, in all those cases when I reach the Lock Screen, the time is formatted in the 12-hour setting.

    I've already submitted all those bugs.

    Cheers!
    I have discovered the registry location for your items in point 3:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics

    Change the first byte of the *Font keys - a smaller hex number is a larger font. Default is F1, 9 pt. I set them all to ED, which is 11 pt. Sign out and back in and it will take effect.

    However, sometimes it forgets, and reverts back to F1 - seems sort of random. I rebooted today after being gone for a day, and all the fonts had reverted to F4 - WTF? But I've got 'em back to 11 pt., at least for now.

    Heya

    Same problem here. There was an update of the amd drivers this morning on my WU and right after that the errors and reporting started for me. I would have swore I had them blocked as I had used a reg hack that allowed me to stop some driver updates from auto install. But once(and every time) WU updates to their dang engineering sample CCC goes crazy and stops working and literally deletes itself from anywhere. I end up each time using amd driver 15.5 beta and install it and everything is ok until the update hits. Wish we had a choice on what updates we want.

    Just got update for ccc from WU and haven't had problem with ccc on this build.
    Error and correction: I did not just get CCC update, I received AMD update for video driver. Do have CCC, have no problems with it with this build.

    Very interesting discovery, thank you! I have applied it. The results are mixed : there is not blurriness anymore in all those Windows components but the "File Computer View" menus in File Explorer, for example, display disproportionately minuscule compared to the Title bar and the content. Also, with these setting text overlaps in some programs, for example the Aquasuite. Also, this setting does not affect the Start Menu. Everything stays tiny in there.

    The default on my system, after returning everything to their defaults so "Zoom" = 100%, was F4 and not F1. After setting everything *Font related in the registry to ED and rebooting the result is that everything in the "Change only the text size" menu is set to "14". I have also set the first byte to F1. That gives size "11", in my system.

    What is the value, the HEX number, for the size to become "12", please? I'd like to try it, even though I think I will return to the 125% Global Zoom, or whatever they call it. It is the only setting that applies " global magnification" without affecting the applications that interest me.

    Note: the sizes are set from the "Change only the text size". I've set everything back to "9", checked the Registry and that first byte is set to F4, the default on my system. So, I assume that there's no need to change any first byte. It can be set directly from that menu.

    Thanks anyway.

    Yes, I am on 10162. But, see that alphabet in your start menu? I don't have that anymore. I lost it about 3 builds ago.
    OK. Do as you may, but quite honestly don't understand why you would use any machine that is malfunctioning. It would be liken to a car that starts but doesn't go anywhere due to a broken transmission. I can understand performing the upgrade method verses fresh install, but it didn't work.

    Have you performed sfc /scannow?

    Uhhhhh, you're welcome, I think . . . I'm not sure how using an external drive for data and downloads keyed you to your solution, but stranger things have happened, I guess.
    Well you mentioned using a USB 3 Drive so I thought why not an eSata. It works great on an external drive. Strange that it would not recognize the new one I have.
