    - Sooo... on the Notification Center there is a new 'toggle on/off' square for ''Media Connect''. This thing is ****ing awesome!

    I have a bluetooth headset, and it usually disconnects after not being used for awhile. Sometimes I can turn it back on by pressing the power button on the headset itself, and then going to Volume > Playback Devices, right-clicking on the headset and selecting Connect. Other times this wouldn't work, so I would have to unpair the bluetooth headset all together, long press the power button on the headset, and then re-pair it to make it work again.

    Under Media Connect's popup window, I just press the power button on the headset, and press the item in this popup list and it starts working. A lot quicker, a lot easier.

    I think it used to be called "Devices" on Win 8 (from the Charms Bar) but doesn't have as much use as Media Connect.
    Good to know you find it useful.

    I got this nice addition when I had a video from VLC playing full screen on a second monitor of which was turned off at the time and I couldn't get it off of full screen and back over to my monitor (useless back info, this isn't a problem). So I switched display settings to show PC screen only (via WinKey+P) and this thing showed up after it switched. Turning on the monitor and going back to extended did nothing. A restart fixed the issue.

    Reinstalling will work, but W10 has a different version than 8.1. It scrolls vertically, and all the functions don't work yet.

    Because that's the way it works in all other tablet OS's. Both iOS and Android make apps full screen, hiding everything.

    But that's not what the default tablet mode behaviour does on W10. It still shows the Start Bar/taskbar, but removes all the pinned icons I have made , leaving only the Start Button and Search Button (ane making the notification tray icons larger and easier to press). I can understand tablet mode either completely hiding the taskbar, or leaving the taskbar present but not removing the pinned items, but I can't understand the use case senario which would need the inbetween step.

    After playing around with tablet mode some more, it still has the occasional hiccup where snapping something to one side of the screen and then choosing something else to fill the remaining half causes an endless loop where each side will disappear when the other is selected. E.G. Media Player Classic and a File Explorer window kept cancelling each other out.

    It also has issues sometimes where a File Explorer window snaps to the a quater of the screen instead of to half of the screen, and only toggling Tablet Mode on and off seems to fix it.

    I feel like W10 Tablet Mode is 'thiiis' close to getting it all right, but somehow that W8.1's touch screen controls handled it all a bit more elegantly. I just can't describe how.

    IT'S not even close of being perfect. Come on MS give us what we need. Something fresh that works. Also I couldn't even find my downloads that need updated. I could go on and on but the real work is for the future.

    Have you submitted input to the feedback and what do you qualify as fresh?? And what bugs are you encountering??

    What I've posted in Windows Feedback on this build thus far:

    Project Spartan: Full screen videos still do not open in full screen. (same as in 10049)

    Windows Feedback crashes while reading through post; unknown reason!

    Project Spartan opens a blank page & a page with the video requested after clicking on a video link from the notification area of YouTube.

    Project Spartan stopped scrolling webpages out of blue, had to close & reopen.

    Startup of system forces CCleaner security notification each time, as if reinstalling it.

    "This PC" will not launch from the start menu.

    Project Spartan will not allow highlighting of addresses in the address bar.

    Project Spartan will not allow editing of favorites titles; this is a must for the favorites bar. (same as in 10049)

    That's a long Project Spartan list.

    I just sent them: "Spartan does not work."

    And then they asked me how likely I will recommend Google Chrome. My answer was "Extremely Likely".
