Windows 10: Things that seem fixed in the Anniversary upgrade
Things that seem fixed in the Anniversary upgrade
Thought it might be interesting to note what seems to have been fixed that we've noted as longstanding quirks or bugs. These are things I've noted so far.
1. Items listed in explorer search which were deleted from the search results list formerly remained displayed unless on hit F5 to refresh the window.
Now they disappear after about 3s.
2. The Flight Mode/ Airplane Mode button in the Action Centre was at odds with the actual state of the mode unless toggled a couple of times.
Now it works as it should.
3. Desktop icon positions were often lost and icons rearranged on the left side.
Now the positions are retained.

The SFC opencl.dll conflict with Nvidia graphics cards appears to have been resolved.
I've noticed Microsoft Edge now allows you to use . / and : in address bar searches since the Anniversary Update.
So we can now search for "NVMe M.2 SSD", "Windows 8.1 Lifecycle", "Canon 600mm f/4 lens" and "16:9 monitor" without needing to use the ? prefix anymore.
regedit search seems to be fixed. It used to stop responding when doing a search, or at least after doing a repeat search with F3, most likely due to the 255 character path limit, but it completes now to the end. Not sure if this problem happened to everyone with the previous build, but it was widely reported and affected me. But it seems fixed now.
I noticed that when saving snips to my desktop I no longer need to use F5 to see the files, especially if I save over an existing file name.
I never received a activation/product key for my version of W10 which was downloaded from the official Microsoft website over a year ago. How can I proceed to upgrade to the latest Anniversary update as I don`t have the required key/code. Thanks in...
Will personal customization be honored or retained within the Aug 2016 Anniversary upgrade? I haven't bothered uninstalling any little default (store) unused apps since I figured they'd likely be reinstalled with the Aug upgrade/update.
I haven't been able to find a definitive answer to this. Many are calling this an 'update', whereas a few are mentioning 'upgrade'.
My understanding is that as an 'Update', we have no choice but to install it when released. i.e its just a normal...

I have held off going from Win 7 to Win 10 for a number of reasons, including several hardware upgrades over the last 6 months. (I actually have one more hardware upgrade I would like to do, going to a M.2 drive once a 500 GB drive comes out, which...
