    I just tried it and it doesn't work for me either. I kinda like a new view every so often. :)

    I really don't understand what you're talking about, Marty, but I've never had any conflicts between my Insider partition and my RTM partition. So far, too, graphics is fine.
    Nor have I. Have triple boot system and never any conflict

    Yes, I dual-booted for years and never once saw Windows get confused about the partition it boots from, because even though you may have another version of Windows installed to D:\, let's say, when you boot from that partition it always becomes c:\, and the other version of Windows changes from c:\ to d:\, etc. No matter how many versions of Windows you have installed in a dual-tri-quad-boot arrangement, etc., there is always only one C:\ drive (partition) after boot. Also, being able to see all your partitions is handy when you want to move files to the other version of Windows partition(s) so that when you boot from it you can install them, etc.

    Now, it is possible that the human operator might get confused about things from time to time, certainly... So he might want to hide these partitions from himself, but Windows won't--it always knows the partition from whence it boots and where other Windows installation partitions are located in my experience.
    If you create multiple windows 10 installations, by default they are called Windows 10 on volume n and that volume is displayed on the boot menu. In other words, drive letters are mot used at all - only volume numbers (and could be on completely different drives). The currently booted drive is always C. The letter for the other drives can be more random.

    Hiding drives in a given installation by removing drive letters only hides them in that installation.

    Might be easier to use EasyBCD to make boot menu.

    I read on a different forum disabling the Outlook spam filter will allow Outlook to function. I don't have Outlook 2016 to test it. The lock screen problem was also in build 16184 as was reported in the 16184 thread.

    Update to 16188 fails at first reboot. For some reason the upgrade process stops then the Windows Boot Manager appears as if the PC is operating normally. Does anyone know why this is happening? My computer is a 7 year old Dell L701x laptop. Does the age of my computer have anything to do with my upgrade problems?

    Waddaya mean, Edwin? For safety, yes? WinKey/L locks it when you walk away. One key stroke or mouse click gets it to sign-in screen. How difficult is that?

    BTW, I see somewhere along the line MS did away with showing the email address of a MS account sign-in screen, which was a complaint of mine and many.
