    Not trying to stir the pot here, but isn't the Edge history the history of sites visited? And the Timeline thing a way to open previous apps/documents and such from previous sessions? I'm a little confused. Really just asking cause they look different to me.
    That is why I described it like restore points on steroids - you are rewinding things like restore points but much more so.

    You are absolutely right, I have been out of a working environment for so long (20 years) it never occurred that anything other than browsing was involved.....apologies to cereberus and yourself if I mislead.

    Regarding Opening previous Apps and Documents and being able to add to or amend them could create serious security problems on highly sensitive information if hackers managed to gain access.
    Not to mention "over the shoulders" eyes, and a big oops! Think we need a whole bunch more details!

    Thanks, Josey.

    First impression....the current Task View to open multiple desktops works fine, and I occasionally use it, but because it forgot everything as soon as you logged off or did a restart, limited value.....at best. Now it appears it's going to "remember" all those somehow as Task Views (Desktops and all you did). Explorer is going to be a busy process! All the more reason to open Explorer in a separate process.

    That was the first thing I thought about when I heard this. The thing to pay attention to, is when big companies are offering things which appear to make our lives easier, it is usually at a hidden price to our freedoms and/or security. So while it sounds cool, taking the time to educate to all that it does, and doesn't do, will be an important step.
    It appears to me that skippy is too problematic, and so I will just stay on fast ring as they will eventually merge anyway.

    So how is timeline different from any tool that backs up data online, has online image backups etc. With good firewalls etc, I do see any more risk than any other situations.

    Of course, one would not be obliged to use it I am sure.

    "Pick up where I left off" is a feature in Cortana introduced in CU. Really nothing that new. I get this with a notification upon boot. It lists apps I used in the last session. One must be signed into a device with the Microsoft account and have this activated.

    Here’s some good reading on what’s to come.

    Have a good and safe trip, Marty. I'm heading out for a long weekend trip myself.
