Windows 10 Anniversary Update - Here is everything you need to know - OUT NOW!

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the info. Updated today, then used "disk cleanup" to delete all the garbage on my SSD. Got 20GB free, all my files and programs work like they used to.

 

So far so good, tested benchmarks and I get expected performance, boot time is amazing now, just like when I clean installed W10 for the first time.

 

Hope it works for everyone, seems their update waves are good enough, I live in Mexico and got the update today in the morning (just decided to install it later to check everything) Hope things keep like this, improving.

Just finished updating - seems to have broken my right clicks and dialogue boxes in chrome/paint... o.O

My Windows Update still hasn't pulled the Anniversary yet.  Yesterday, I attempted the manual update through MS' website.  The installer downloaded the ISO, began the install, rebooted the machine, did some more work on the install, and then rebooted the machine again.  What I was left with was: my original Windows 10.  I was able to replicate this about 5 or 6 times before I just gave up.

 

I'm likely doing something wrong, but I'm not sure what, yet.

Its seems the new update screws over people using windows 10. By not allowing to disable the lock screen, preventing microsoft ads and having microsoft download apps to your computer like candy crush. 

get-appxpackage -Name *candycrush* | remove-appxpackage

 

 

Open powershell and run that command.  I can't stand that kind of crap on my system either. Here's some more you could run:

 

get-appxpackage -Name *store* | remove-appxpackage      

get-appxpackage -Name *bing* | remove-appxpackage     

get-appxpackage -Name *solitaire* | remove-appxpackage

get-appxpackage -Name *advertising* | remove-appxpackage

get-appxpackage -Name *zune* | remove-appxpackage

 

You can search for all packages using get-appxpackage.  And you can remove them individually by using remove-appxpackage [full package name].  The commands above will remove several packages at once, any package that contains the string between the ** symbols.  Also, you may have to run those commands as all users on your system.  I have two users, an admin and a normal user.  I ran all of those commands with both users in order to remove all of the packages for both users.

 

I wish you could remove cortana and xbox but you cannot.  I have however fully disabled cortana through group policy so I'm satisfied.

 

 

@GoodBytes Some people want a clean professional system, not a junky OS pre-loaded with software they will never use.  Unpinning can hide the candycrush but I don't want to hide it, I want it off of my system.

 

 

EDIT: I forgot one of the worst ones!!!

 

get-appxpackage -Name *skype* | remove-appxpackage

The phone features will be the soul reason why I will update!

I always lose my phone and respond 2h late to messages so it will be very useful to have it on my pc!

 

I also hope that when I look for an app on the start menu it will show me the .exe and not the bloody .dll files

 

Thank you for the list btw!

Thats why i talked about Windows10 Enterprise LTSB above.

The LTSB version does not come with all those modern apps bloatware installed.

There is also no Cortana and no Edge included either.

So i´m realy currious how much data collection and telemetry tracking there is still left in the LTSB version without all that crap included.

I know this. And no, unpinning removes the link to download it. It will be your only option, and it will not be actually installed. Assuming you did click on it and it is install, then uninstalling it, will remove any trace from it, which is the beauty of Universal Apps.

For those who are complaining about the data collecting etc, but still need/want to use windows.

May I suggest "Windows 10 LTSB", it's everything you want without all the crap.

Truly the best version of windows.

@GoodBytes Can I now reinstall Windows 7 without having to worry about being forced onto Windows 10?

 

I know they brought the telemetry crap to Windows 7, but I can remove that fairly easily. Not just a security concern, but a bandwidth issue as well. My ISP is crap, and is allegedly experiencing "bandwidth exhaustion" resulting in disconnects and "DNS errors" on a nightly basis. So anything that uses more bandwidth is to be avoided.

 

Already filed multiple FCC complaints, the ISP claimed the issue would be fixed by April/May. It has not lol

Ah, I updated my laptop first...it went smoothly. Took about an hour and a half though...

 

My desktop was next, but I needed to get some work done, so I started the utility but paused the update by clicking cancel update. As I was working, I didn't notice the window closed itself and actually started updating. I was pissed when I got a pop up message "You'll be logged out to install updates"...no postpone option...just close. And so it kicked me out of my unsaved work...

 

I'm still unsure how I feel about the start menu though...having it show all apps all of the time feels a bit messy...I'd rather have a list of pinned apps or most used apps first then have a all apps button at the bottom of it.

 

Ah, it kicked me off of all of my network drives to my NAS so I have to set those up again...

 

Edit:

It made Dreamweaver lose all passwords to my FTP accounts for my website work...

So, it may just be me, but it seems that the anniversary update has made my computer freeze more often, heck I cant even use my tablet anymore after the update (cant undo the update either because everything crashes when I try to do anything) my tablet freezes whenever I try to do anything, from opening an app, to opening the start menu.

Second computer to update got wrecked.  First computer was an a10-7850k in an itx gigabyte f2a88xn-wifi.  That system updated although comparatively it seems a little buggy but that could be coincidence.

 

Second computer is an fx8350 in a sabertooth 990fx with an r9 290x.  The system tried to update on it's own after running for a few hours.  Something crashed during the way, it restarted and said autorepair would not work and gave me the option of restarting or advanced options.  This screen then froze up and I was forced to do a manual hard reset.  And now the system will not boot into windows.  Not even to the windows repair screen.


So I'm most likely going to have to completely reinstall windows 10 on the system.  Thankfully most of the software on that system is on a seperate HDD than the OS.

 

Now I'm concerned about even booting my laptop : /

I'd suggest to everyone to check important settings they have on their software and OS. I found out that my update changed settings in Samsung Magician utility. It reactivate the indexer for the OS on my SSD, thanks mate.

Minor warning points like that aside, it broke my cs go install for unknown reasons.

Changes aren't groundbreaking, but nice still.
