    I will check later

    Thanks

    The only activation issues I've had was when using my MSDN MAK keys. All was fine on the first PC I used it on, after that though I got failed activations. Running the activation troubleshooter on one PC fixed it. On the other I just ran slmgr /ato from and admin command prompt and it activated. I've had zero issues on clean installs and upgrades on PC's that already had a Digital License.

    @Superfly may have some ideas?
    I'd rather work from some diagnostic info see Activation troubleshooting - Windows 10 Forums... some here seem coy to post the report (too much Win 10 telemetry hysteria no doubt) but it helped me a lot at Eight Forums helping solve stuff... so?

    This thread seems to have changed a lot since it was started mid-Oct. It was supposed to be about news of the winter update but looks to be a rather technical discussion going on most recently. I was looking for any post from new users of the update and if they have noticed all the changes to your customization of Windows.

    They threw out all my registry hacks and changed the default view on music and other files back to what you got when you first installed Windows 10. That's a lot more disruptive than I think an update needs to be. I think they redid the layout of some sections since when I look at a snip of some window taken on Win 10 on some help site, it doesn't match what I see in areas such as Control Panel.

    BTW, what's the name of that part of the computer that does work but can't be written too such as Computer Management? Is it only called ROM? Nothing more romantic?

    The Fall Creators update is classed as an Upgrade rather than an Update (although a lot of people got the upgrade through Windows Update ), It's been normal practice for as long as I can recall for an Upgrade to reset the registry and other standards to default
    Read Only Memory "ROM" is a location for the firmware that is also classed as Write Once Read Many Times, The BIOS of a computer is held in a type of ROM but one that is partially accessible A type of EPROM Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory, that allows a selection of options and a complete overwrite using special software

    Thanks for the explanation. For an upgrade I haven't noticed anything working any better or anything added that I didn't have before. Most of the time I just wish they'd leave the damn thing alone unless they're fixing a real bad bug.

    Does anyone know how early version 1803 will be released in 2018? Why such another big update so soon after 1709? Was going to proceed to clean install 1709 in the coming days but with another one just around the corner is it worth it?

    There will be two planned upgrades every year under the new design plan for windows 10 one around March xx03 and one around September xx09. the exact release dates are only known to a few people in Microsoft, at present and these due to the nature of software development will, at this time only be an estimate but the Insider program does allow you to be involved in the process by checking out Beta builds as they are released ...

    The way that Windows is delivered to the user has changed significantly with Windows 10

    Microsoft has announced that future feature upgrades will be released twice a year, in March and September. That's the official schedule, however in practice the release dates have been a few days delayed into next month (1703 released on April 5th, 1709 released on October 17th).

    Short answer: version 1803 will be released earliest last week in March, most probably early April. My personal guess is it will be released on 10th or 17th of April.
