Windows 10 Insider Topic

KB3070365 pushed out to updates fixing flyouts and notifications.

 

When you click icons on the taskbar (including Start, Cortana, Network, Battery, and Action Center) in Build 10130 of Windows 10 Insider Preview, the expected flyout might not open.

First thing I did was run Windows Update and all I got was a Windows Defender definition update. I was like wut... where mein KB3070365... then looked at installed updates and it was already there. Windows Update is now a ninja.

I upgraded my Windows 8.1 install to Build 10130 last night and it went pretty smooth. It's stable and works as you would expect. I installed the Windows 8.1 graphics driver package that you would get from AMD's website as the beta drivers available in Windows Update are a mess. I installed Build 10074 a while back and was immediately disgusted with it and reverted back to Windows 8.1. Although I can say I'm now seeing the potential in Build 10130. Windows 10 is in it's polishing stages right now so every build onward will continue to get better and better.

That's awesome to hear. I can't wait to get my copy in about a month.

ARRRGHHH! I really CANNOT get used to an OS newer than Windows 7.

 

I'm testing Windows 10 just now and I've had it do one of it's "necessary", "must install ASAP" updates.

 

It just so happened to be a graphics driver update. But... It chose the best time to install it off its own accord; when I'm playing a £@!%ING GAME!!!

 

Seriously... Microsoft ruined Windows (which let's be honest, was nowhere near perfect at Windows 7) with Windows 8. I was hoping to everything that they'd make it much better again with Windows 10. I'm VERY unimpressed with what I've seen in the ~two months (over the past year) that I've used it.

 

I think I'm going to stick with 7 like most people stuck with XP at this rate. Unless DX12 is unbelievably good and MANY other amazing things happen in the near future.

 

Hell, I can't even stop using ClassicStart because the Windows 10 start menu is still terrible.

 

Rant over... Anyone else agree with me on all of this?

Yea. it is an annoyance.

This is really a feature that bugs me. I plan to have the option to delay updates enabled. (pro only feature... you still can't stop it, just delay). In the mean time, post user feedback, make your voice heard, and vote for being able to hide updates, at least drivers:

Hi guys, there are a few topics about Windows 10, but here I want to make one just for people (like me) who test the system.

Windows Insider Program

https://insider.windows.com/

 

I'm just beginning my testing, I'm running it on Oracle Virtualbox, if you're curious what my settings are, here you go:

Edit: Default Windows 8.1 settings should work, if not, here you've got mine:

 

Microsoft Windows, Other (32bit)

All cores, 100% (shouldn't affect much, work speed is quite high)

TURN ON PAE (otherwise the system won't start)

128MB GPU, 3D Acceleration

 

I needed to shut down the virtual machine a few times because of a black screen, don't worry if you get one.

 

After you install everything, your network and audio might not work. I managed to fix my issues with those settings:

The great list of easter eggs and bugs:

Charm bar search still exists.

You can "summon" it by Win + C

 

There are two task managers

What's new?

A little bit different structure of C:\

C:\ is now better organized, it's more minimalistic. That's how it works:

C:\

-PerfLogs

-Program Files

-Users

--Name

--Public

-Windows

 

 

Crap wish I had seen this before I updated my own thread about windows 10. Now I feel out dated.

OS is very stable.

Yes, you can run it until Windows 10 is released. We don't know what will happen after. We do know that we will have a grace period to give us time to backup our stuff and install the official release. We don't know if there will be future builds to insiders to the path Windows 10.1. We know that there will be Insider Preview for 10.1, but we don't know when it will start: immediately after 10.0 is released, or later on.

Do you mind reinstalling on official release or if a beta update breaks something? If so go ahead

And as said earlier beware of amd reliability on 10

Windows 10 works perfectly but Windows update keeps forcing a new Touchpad driver which breaks my media touchkeys and causes the laptop to hang every so often, worse is it forces the update even when I install the Windows 7 drivers from the manufacturer which work perfectly.

I sincerely hope in the final build you can stop Windows forcing driver upgrades.

(Turning off driver updates from Windows update in System Properties does not stop them)

Nope. Windows updates are now forced. Pro or non-Pro version of Windows, all Windows updates are forced. All you can do is delay a Windows update if you have a Pro edition of Windows, and that is only by a few days.

 

I did post a feedback on it, but it doesn't look like many people care about it due to the low count:

https://windows.uservoice.com/forums/265757-windows-feature-suggestions/suggestions/8232813-hide-updates

Please vote, and spread the word.

I don't think many care due to the low number of professionals who need the feature or casual users with paranoia.

Apparently, if you have Windows 10 Insider Preview, you automatically get a full license of Windows 10 on release.
Without the need to even confirm if you have a copy of Windows 7 or 8.1.

 

Now I'm just questioning if that will remain a full license after a year or if it will ask you to pay like what they had initially planned for pirates.

As I said in another thread:

 

Yes, but it must be noted that you are forced to have a joined Microsoft account, forced to the Insider program (meaning be ready to upgrade your Windows every month minimum, so if you have a bandwidth cap or not fast Internet, that could be a problem), and also you'll be an unstable environment (beta OS), which could have critical bug which could results in permanent data loss (and this is not one of those rare thing. It happened on Windows 10 beta, Windows 7 beta, and I THINK Vista beta as well, but don't quote me that.. its been too long), or unexpected system re-install.

 

If you want to get out, install your previous version of Windows, and upgrade to Windows 10.

"Forced". It's called quid pro quo.

Whether you use a pirated copy of anything is beyond our scope, but if you are, you should always be cautious of using new software designed by the same people you are "stealing" from.
