    Question: Does enabling Skip Ahead result in a build shift, from 16257.1.170728-1700.RS3_RELEASE to 16257.1000.170728-1630.RS_PRERELEASE ?

    I ask because I read an article on my phone today about skip ahead being enabled, so I tried it, but it said it was disabled - and yet both machines immediatly downloaded the 16257.1000 Prerelease build after being on 16257.1_Release....

    just curious, is all.

    A lot of freezing and crashing going on in Photos App importing from devices!

    Yes it does. .1 to .1000.

    That's news to me that it updated like that.

    OK, you are right. That can't be correct in case of W10 VM. No compression makes it as small.

    Thanks Edwin - some to experiment with - grayscale is not bad at all.

    Photos App...


    If the Photo was taken with a GPS enabled device, geo-tagging is automatic, and almost spot on, most of the time, in the Photos App; whereas, with Photo Gallery, for example, the geo-tag still needs to be added manually.

    Win 10 Pro x64 17040 Skippy

    Got my old Dell 1720 lappy running on Insiders now. Took it from Vista to a clean install of Win 7 Pro to Win 10 Pro to Insiders:

    It has a x64 processor but kept it at 32 bit like it's previous OS's. Still have some hardware upgrades to go but it runs very well for a 10 year old machine.

    I'm in full agreement; Microsoft created an Operating System capable of running any number of third party programs, making it so very easy for me to choose what best suits my way of working.

    Microsoft makes one bang-up Microsoft Office suite in Office 365, no doubt about it. However, that said, not everyone can justify the price of a standalone version or yearly subscription; enter Libre Office, Google Docs and a few others to take up the slack. Windows Defender is fine for most; however, for the more adventuresome of us who've been bitten, third party AVs such as Avast, Malwarebytes, McAfee (shudder), etc. are called for. Want to edit your photos and/or videos? Microsoft is working on it, but third party apps, such as Adobe, Corel and a few others are far better than anything MS has to offer at the moment. If one has a printer, programming must be installed to run that printer. I cannot imagine Microsoft creating drivers for gazillions of printers out there in the hinterlands. In fact, I'd hazard a guess that Windows is filled with drivers and such supplied by third party OEMs.

    Sure, I can be a "purist" and barely get by if I only use Microsoft apps/programs, but I won't get the professional results I'd like, to say the least. Why should I, then, limit myself to only what Microsoft produces, when there's all that good stuff out there, (as you've so aptly shown) in the wild to be had. Am I telling the "purist" not to limit him/herself to Windows produced apps/programs? No way, no how!

    Bottom line; Windows 10 is capable of using almost anything thrown at it. In fact, I'd be willing to wager that Microsoft intends for its Operating System(s) to run any third party program necessary to get the job done. MS doesn't expect, nor even want us to use only Microsoft product; otherwise Windows 10 would be a closed system.

    I'm in agreement with you Wynona. Use the best product for the job that you can afford.
