    Build 10036 observations

    Hi there

    On install -- NO prompt for a Ms account if you are already using a Local account -- OK

    File explorer -- No double showing of disks --OK
    File explorer - Icon changed (I like it) to a "Polo Mint or Donut" type ring when displaying Disk properties. -- OK

    Search on menu -- Improved megarly 90% OK 10% still NOK.

    Start menu (tiles) does not display on a non Touch device - always boots to desktop --NOK

    Cannot get into the UI to change menu colour etc. as per previous build -- NOK

    Apps all mine working so far --OK

    Network shares SAMBA to W10 -- C drive not properly displayed NOK
    SAMBA to W10 Other drives -- all accessible OK
    W10 9926 to W10 10036 OK

    Media servers from Linux and Windows (Mezzmo, Plex, Logitech mediaserver) OK
    Media servers to Smart TV Mezzmo OK, Plex OK, Logitech media server OK

    Touch -- haven't tested yet as installed on standard PC.

    Start Menu for standard Apps -- DOGS DINNER -- have to scroll via alphabetical stuff and has EVERYTHING on it --NOT OK !!

    Build seems reasonable -- will stick with it for a while - if new official build comes out will revert bXH TO 9926 AND UPDATE.

    Main gripe --start menu still a dogs dinner and the "C" drive doesn't properly display in SAMBA -- had that problem in build 9926 as well. Irritants aren't bad enough to stop me using this for a while though. Installed on a PHYSICAL non touch spare desktop.

    Thanx for the feedback... seen a few similar reports, decided not to bother with this one, from most reports I've seen thus far, many have gone back to 9926.

    Hi there

    I've a few machines so it's no bother keeping this for a while. I'll wait for the OFFICIAL build to start testing on Touch.

    Agree with your observations, except Mail/Calendar/People apps fail to install, give an error msg. Start menu a mess, though I've been able to work with it mostly. Explorer is real slow and laggy for me, especially at first. The Quick Access feature has real problems with speed and occasional temporary freezes.

    Other than that, it works fine. I will do a fresh install with the official build when it comes out, but for now I'll continue checking out 10036.

    It has some nice changes to it but really not as much as I was hoping for,. While it's fun to play with and get an idea of the direction MS is taking there is nothing like using an official build.

    Well, that much was obvious.. 10036 was just too buggy.
