    Just to clarify the MVP thing a bit - they classify you in what seems (at the time) to fit you best.
    Originally I was a Networking MVP - even though I can't setup a network beyond plugging the different stuff into my router.

    I too have been reclassed from Windows Expert to Windows Experience.
    But my "experience" is completely different from alphanumeric's. I specialize in BSOD stuff for users (with a bit of Windows Internals thrown in to keep me going on kernel mode stuff).
    BTW - congrats on the re-award!

    IMO the biggest benefits of being an MVP are access and networking. You can ask questions and receive answers through the MVP channels that aren't available elsewhere - both from Microsoft employees and from other MVP's. Not to mention the free beer (and food) at MVP Summit! :0)

    I missed it two times two weeks ago before catching it. I guess that's when Kari posted this in his tut.
    Might add that the "hurry up" part is easier if while it is downloading (should have plenty of time!), you get Windows C: up in another window and un-check files-and-folders option for "hide protected operating system files". Maybe even the target drive/folder you're going to copy to in another window. Then it's just a quick click into those folders, F5 the C: drive to refresh, and copy/paste away!

    Since one of the first things I do on a new install is to unhide everything, Windows 10 now does it for me as a given. Even on a clean install . . . I go into check out the "hidden files and folders" and none are.

    True, I was just referring to the other Super Hidden, the hidden operating system stuff, like System Volume Information and stuff like that. The $windows~BT folder has those in it.
