    Excellent, you'll never regret it. A lot of peace of mind when you know you can always recover from a problem.
    Perform regular backups. I do mine once a week. Also backup right before doing any upgrade.

    Try sorting out the basics first.
    You know I don't think they can anymore. Sure would be nice if if they would fix this problem.

    A Special THANKS to Ztruker for the great advice. .

    Here are all of the steps I took before installing the Creators Update:

    1) Made a Recovery Drive on USB
    2) Copied they entire User file to the external hard drive
    3) Created a system image using Macrium.
    4) Saved the Intel graphics driver to the external hard drive (paranoid after losing my old system)
    5) Ran a search as follows: Dell XPS 8910 Creators Update. The results brought up a large list of the computers Dell has tested and determined to be compatible. You might want to check other manufacturers as well.
    6) Ran the Update using the "get it now" option
    7) Microsoft also ran a compatibility update. How about that? I was so happy!
    8) Installed the Creators Update and it ran smooth as silk. I will use that same method to install new builds from now on.
    9) This update allows us to turn off Cortana. Love it! But she is still there under search so will need to fix that later.
    10) If you are unhappy, you can go back to the previous version.
    11) Create a new Recovery Drive on USB

    My computer is now fully updated with no problems. Yay!! Hope this info helps those of you who have not yet gotten the latest build.

    Drawboard PDF


    While opening a new PDF file I used "open with" and saw "Drawboard PDF" as an option. I'm pretty sure I've never seen that app before so I assume it came with the Creator's Update.

    Clicking on it it says my trial period has expired but I'm welcome to purchase it from the store. Not really wanting another PDF apt, especially one I have to buy I tried to uninstall it but found it's not listed in programs that I can uninstall or change in the control panel. Anyone know what's going on with this app?

    It is a Windows Store app so you can uninstall it using Programs and Features. I use Nitro PDF here - free.

    Cameochi, it is not listed in Programs and Features. Any other ideas?

    Open Settings > System > Apps and Features, you can uninstall applications on this screen. Including those from the MS Store

    edit: I just checked and not all Apps can be uninstalled, Xbox is one, the uninstall option is subdued. As with all things MS, Your Mileage May Vary

    I was able to remove XBox but I forget how I did it. It didn't reinstall with this new build either. You might try GHacks or Windows Club as I hang out on those a lot. The other possibility is that I used Power Shell (run as admin).

    After the "Creators Update", I couldn't get my screen to fill the available Monitor space. Had 2 inches of blackness on all 4 sides of screen. Did some Google searches and found that the only way to accomplish this was via a Registry hack. Followed the instructions and all is good now.

    But it's strange that a Windows Update/Upgrade would limit one's ability to use Windows 10 settings for adjusting screen size.
