Latest Windows 10 Update
« on: June 15, 2017, 04:59:31 PM »
If you have gotten the latest update of Win 10, and you have not looked at the control panel yet, you're in for a big surprise!!  There is NO Control Panel!!  Programs and Features has been replaced with App and Features and it's totally different looking.   It's like looking at a foreign operating system!!  Not sure if I like it or not but it really took me by surprise!!

I'm attaching an image of what the new Apps and Features looks like.  Just when I learn my way around Windows and can find things quickly, they go and muck it up so I have to start learning all over again!!  I guess that's called progress.

For me this pm an update did the following. When I opened the pc, there was an image, asking if I liked it or not then it wanted me to sign in which I don't. Finally find where I could restart and when it came back on it was OK,
I sure wish they would leave things alone.

I have my system set to automatically update whenever Windows wants to.  I don't mind it, we need to keep up to date with things.  If I had to buy a new computer tomorrow, I'd be so lost if I didn't know what to expect.   I should take the time to read what's new!!   :wideeye:

i dont like it
 i think there is one major bug in it too

if i open my  my pictures from the documents and double click on an image ...i should be taken to the program i have set to open it by default.

but i am not....now  i get a pop up box asking me which  program i want to open it... thats ok...but when i select a program from the list  and select ok ..

the pop up closes then returns to be filled in again..????????????

so i check the always open with this app...  the box closes then returns..... i cannot ...no matter what ...get windows to open my image  by double clicking

i can still drag it from the pictures to an open program.....but when i have always double clicked it is going to take some getting used to   NOT opening this way.

I always have had my images open in Windows Photo Viewer (jpg, png, gif) because I don't always know what program I want to use.  So, I just use the photo viewer which is really great!  You can crop an image and do some minor editing such as brighten, darken, and a few more adjustments without opening a full blown program.  You can also delete images and set it to do a slide show of whatever is in the folder. 

It takes too long for programs to open when I just want to maybe crop an image or something like that.

Teejay, you might want to restore to just before the update.  The system creates an automatic backup before doing a Windows install.  I've only had to do that once but it worked perfectly.

Something might have gone wrong in the upgrade - that does happen, unfortunately!!

I'm just trying to stay cool!!  It's after 6pm and still 101 - HOT!!  I am re-doing the closet in the guest bedroom. It's the only one left with paneling on the walls.  Put one coat of primer on last night and a second, this morning.  Now I have to go out and buy paint to finish the walls and ceiling.  Be glad when that is done because I hate it when things are messed up!

Good luck with Win 10!!

I always have updates installed automatically, though the updates always upset the tablet settings which I have to adjust. I've just checked and my Control Panel is still there.
