    Did anybody check Start menu in some detail ?
    Settings > Personalization > Choose which folders appear On Start.
    Settings > Personalization > Use Start full screen (Hipsy Gipsy should like that one).
    3 lines at the left top of Start menu open left side so text for all items there shows instead of icons only.

    Been all over all of them getting the latest VM set up and recorded. The Start button Right Click menu saw additions there as well. And the option for replacing the Command prompt is in that menu. You can also Pin the Windows PowerShell onto the Start menu itself rather then the need to dig into the AllApps to get at it without touching anything on the right click menu there.

    While in the Windows PowerShell folder you simply right click on anything there to see it pinned to the main Start menu The same for just everything else found inside the other folders in addition to the option to select which folders will appear.

    For the Backup that also sees a list of things and breaks everything down by how many drives you have as well. Look under Save locations to see there's an on/off for about every system created user folder.

    I have PowerShell ISE pinned to my QuickLaunch Bar. I just right click (can't get away from that GUI) and choose Run as Admin. Piece of cake!

    I like the QuickLaunch Bar best.

    I noticed a new Network speed test feature in build 14328, but it's not working yet.

    Yup, it was noted in the document and I believe it said not working yet. Vaguely aware of it because I've slept since I read it. :)

    I think (perhaps) they are moving this app into core OS - just not quite working as the maximum rates seem limited far less than any normal broadband. This was repoted by @Cluster Head here.. Microsoft Could Include a Speed Test Feature in Bing Search Engine - Windows 10 Forums

    50 MB? Pfff. MS Speed Test

    Nope, just that I'm at the age when things don't stick in my brain overnight. :)

    I don't know if I'm behind on discovery, but while looking for something else, I found this!

    Will I ever use it? Ohhhhh, heck yeah! This will work fantastically great for my Windows tablet!

    Just go to Settings and click on Projecting to this PC and you're there.

    Edit: Whoops, the real path is Settings>System and then click on Projecting to this PC.

    This isn't there in Build 14316 as far as I can tell.
