    I have "Ask Cortana about whatever" back on the context menu of right click highlighted word in Edge back.

    Going through Settings app some settings were changed. Not many, though. I see they have little mini help videos that can be full-screened in some categories.

    Security Center has a face lift.

    Is Hustle-as-a-service a real thing?. Anyway I've gotten kicked off Skippy a couple of times but have used the registry hack to get it fixed. Have bookmaked the Activity key. Now I at 65% downloading 16353. I'm figuring build 16358 which will be compiled tomorrow (Friday) will be our build next week. We will see.

    It's something Dona started amongst her peers I guess mimicking Windows as a service.

    Mine was hanging at 64% for several hours. Gave up, reinstated vhd from backup .vmcz file and trying again.

    So much for uup - less is more!
    Worked the second time but took ages. Something is seriously fubared
    with uup.

    Does anybody know if the old regedit to force full install.esd method still work?

    I had no issues upgrading the physical machine except that the old windows installation, being cleaned now by Disk Cleaner, weighed in at 27.5 GB. That's more than a third of the disk space I have allocated to Windows 10. I wonder if MS could just code a simple switch to give the user the option of keeping an old version or just removing it. Most of us do regular imaging of our machines after all. I'm not going to be saving my old 16273 - this build feels pretty stable right now.

    This would be a really great option especially for tablets/hybrids with 32 GB mmc drives. It can be difficult to upgrade these without freeing up space so windows.old can fit on drive. Of course, user would have to understand that if upgrade craps out, the only options would be to clean install, or restore a system image backup (assuming user made one, of course).

    So, even if you set switch, you should probably have a "confirm you want to do this" screen as well.

    Also, it should speed up the install significantly.

    Why not post or look on feedback hub to see if suggested, or create a new feedback and post a link?

    The term is so puerile, it's pathetic.

    OK, I just did. Thanks for the encouragement. This would be incredibly simple to code as they already have the warning when you run Disk Cleanup - System Files.

    Not sure how to find a link to my feedback on the Hub but here's the text of the suggestion.

    -----------------------------------------------------

    The last upgrade I made to build 16353 from 16273 (Fast/Skip Ahead ring) used 27.5 GB which is more than one-third of the disk space I have allocated on a small SSD. I also dual boot with Windows Server 2016 and Debian Sid.I've long thought that an option to skip the windows.old folder (and other update folders) should be provided with a confirmation which you already have with Disk Cleanup. This would likely reduce the update time significantly as well as being a service for those of us running Windows 10 IP's on notebooks as well.
