It is taking some getting used to and I am sure some of the things are a matter of finding the right location within settings. For example: re ordering my favorites in Edge. I don't like the default. I will say that the win10 built in movie and picture viewers seem really slow.... Other than that, I've had it only about 12 hours... Too early to tell how I will like it.

On the plus side... Updating was real easy and took only 1 hour from start of DL to completion

As for favs, just click import from the menu, haven't played around with the movie/picture thing yet. My install was a PITA, kept going into a failure loop, did some research and found the problem being the video drivers, once I disabled them it went right thru.

Like anything else I guess it'll take some getting used to, but nothing near the horrible mess of Windows ME or Windows 8.

Yeah... I imported them with no issue. Just the method the program arranged them: Folders at the bottom and individual links at the top. it is just backwards from what Im used to... hell may even be able to manually change that but am at work.

I am still patiently waiting for my download. This is the first version of Windows that I did not actually Beta test. So I can't wait to put my hands on it.

https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/soft...load/windows10 and scroll down the page and pick either 32 or 64 tool depending which system you have. You will get a pop up asking to run or save, click run then select your poison when the tool fires up.
