Yes, and there is a workaround for the first bug (according to Microsoft) :
  1. Try to quit the full screen and work in window mode.
  2. Use only one screen.
But the game will not be enjoyed the same.

From what i've readed and hearded, WINDOWS 10 will never been finished. It's supposed to be an "Semi-Rolling-Release", which in my eyes is very bad for "known-as-stable-user" who are forced to switch to this development!?!

Yes, I'm afraid so.
Microsoft did not explicitly tell it so, but that's what one can understand.
It means constant never-ending upgrades.

Rather than inventing something useful it is Microsoft's way to adapt to their (bad) situation.

What really annoys me about Windows 10 - is that I can scan an image for the forum
- if it needs rotated , I do that , then save it - and when I come to upload it to image bam - its went back to the original state ! ( ie still on its side )
The mess this has made of my system for the forum is annoying - so now
I have to try to scan the right way up and mitigate this defect

Default Windows 10 - Blu Ray Data disc file access

I have had Windows 10 Home x64 since it started in August of 2015. I have noticed something of a bug in access many files in a folder on a blu ray data disc.
When I open the a folder full of jpgs or bmps, pngs, it can take ages for the folder to actually open and show me the contents. When the folder does open and show me whats in it, as I start to navigate through them suddenly windows explorer will suddenly crash and relaunch itself. If I have those same files on the hard disc itself it has no problem in pulling the folder up regardless of how many files are in it. Cyberlink PowerDVD 2016 can open the folder and its contents up with no issues and navigate through them with no hiccups or crashes. I have clean installed Windows 10 after times, especially after the August 2016 Anniversary Update, but this issue recurs. The blu rays are BD-R 25GB Verbatims. Anyone have an idea or a thought on this, or at least seen the same behaviour?

There is a similar thing with the folder 'Downloads'.

There are changes about update policy at Microsoft.

Microsoft decided to make a scoop by communicating about their new update policy.
I'll let you decide whether this is really a scoop.
For me it is not; it is a new adaptation to get more people using a Microsoft account.





In the first two images you see what you will have as a choice.
The third image is a screen-copy of the new explanations.

To conclude, this looks like a good idea but it is used by Microsoft to make an advertisement in order to get more customers for their products.

Apart form this we still get stucked to the upgrades.

After all that intrusive advertisment and the coercion to upgrade to WINDOWS 10 they really think they will find some people to agree to that policy? Well, "Good Luck, MICROSOFT!" Or they really think more people would agree to open an MICROSOFT-account? Well again: "Good Luck, MICROSOFT!"

Most people doesn't know even if they're switching "Off" all of this stuff and put their Diagnostics to "Basic"(what does "basic" mean by the way - nowhere to be found, what that means!!!) "Big Brother" collects Telemetry and other things as long as you don't ban your OS to send data to a list of IP's!

Add to this the fact that Windows 10 is a real s... with the parameters that we are constantly to reset.

I really consider buying an Apple machine.

Default Windows 7 maintains it's hold on the PC ecosystem

Despite being now gainfully employed, I have yet to take the plung on a new Windows 10 computer. Bucking current trends, I would be more interested in buying a desktop instead of a laptop or a tablet. I was able to maintain and upgrade my last desktop for nearly ten years, whereas I have had three laptops in the same span of time.

I'm still not sold on the features in Windows 10 or Windows 10 Professional. My wife's job gave her a new Dell laptop with Windows 10 Education Edition. To be blunt, if I could get a licensed copy of the Education Edition I would look upon Windows 10 more favorably.

Apparently I am not the only one who has hesitated to take the plunge. As I stated last year Windows 8.x users seems happy to move on, but Windows 7 users are still resisting. Despite three different sources of data quoted in the following article by ZDnet's Ed Bott, all three have the Windows 7 install base still around 50%. The "free" upgrade, the "accidental" updates, and the release of the Windows 10 Anniversary Edition have not given Windows 10 the market dominance our friends in Redmond hoped for.


Windows 10 versus Windows 7: Whose numbers do you trust?

Are users really in love with Windows 7? Or are they clinging to old habits as Windows 10 rolls out? Three popular data sources offer very different answers. Regardless of which one you choose, take that data with a heaping helping of salt.

By Ed Bott for The Ed Bott Report
January 25, 2017 -- 12:00 GMT (04:00 PST)

Long-term shifts in the installed base for Windows PCs are nothing new. For decades, businesses have been dealing with the logistics and the costs of migrating from one Windows version to another.

As my colleague Steve Ranger noted earlier this week, the shift to Windows 10 is following that familiar pattern, with the current corporate standard OS, Windows 7, hanging on tenaciously.

I've been following the same transition, and my view of how it's playing out differs a bit from Steve's. Part of the difference of opinion is just a matter of interpretation, of course, but a larger part comes from the data itself.

His analysis was based on numbers from Net Applications (aka NetMarketShare). I find that data source extremely problematic.

I first wrote about the problems with this data three years ago (see Net Market Share vs. StatCounter: Whose online measurements can you trust?). A fresh look at current data reveals that those problems still exist.

For this post, I've assembled the latest usage figures from NetMarketShare and from two other highly regarded sources that release similar data. The first is StatCounter Global Stats. The second is the US government's Digital Analytics program, which I've written about previously (November 2015, February 2016, and June 2016).

The following series of tables offer a summary of Windows usage worldwide over the second half of 2016. (Note that for the sake of apples-to-apples comparisons, I have normalized the StatCounter numbers so that they represent the same population of Windows PCs as the other two data sources.)


Three data sources, three very different views of the Windows installed base.

A few obvious conclusions leap off the chart.

First, Windows 7 and Windows 10 completely dominate PC usage, accounting collectively for 72.7 percent to 88.9 percent of visits from the installed base. That's a pretty wide range, though, which I'll get into in a moment.

Second, about half of the installed base continues to use Windows 7, with all three data sources pegging the number within a couple points of 50 percent.

Windows 8.x usage is steadily shrinking, and all three sources agree that only the most determined of dead-enders (roughly 1 percent) still use Windows Vista, whose end-of-support date is less than 90 days away.

Finally, Windows 10 usage has increased since the one-year free upgrade offer ended in July 2016. Converted to an annualized rate, Windows 10 usage grew by somewhere between 8 percent and 12.5 percent per year. Again, that's a pretty big spread.

Where the three sources diverge most dramatically is in their measurement of how many people are still using Windows XP, which has been unsupported for nearly three years. NetMarket Share says a staggering 9.1 percent of its visitors use XP, while DAP shows XP usage down near Vista levels, under 2 percent.

So, who do you believe? Start by looking carefully at where the data comes from.

DAP is a measurement of actual visits to US government websites. Roughly 95 percent of the traffic comes from outside the government, and 20 percent or so of that is from outside the US. The sites themselves are a broad mix of consumer-focused information (NASA pictures, National Weather Service forecasts, tax forms, and so on) and sites for business users.

StatCounter and NetMarketShare, by contrast, report only aggregate numbers and not actual numbers of visits. The analytics are targeted to commercial, ad-supported websites.

As I noted in my earlier article, there's a crucial difference in how the two companies measure traffic. NetMarketShare attempts to measure daily unique users, while StatCounter measures total traffic. If you visit a single page in the NetMarketShare network, you're counted, and then your visits to any other page on any other site in the network are (in theory) ignored for the rest of the day.

In addition, NetMarketShare weights the data by country, whereas StatCounter doesn't.

All three sources count billions of visits per year, so sample size isn't a problem.

Those methodological details offer one highly plausible explanation for why XP usage appears to be so much higher on NetMarketShare (and to a lesser extent on StatCounter) than on the DAP numbers.

In a word: botnets.

When I've spoken to representatives of both analytics firms in the past, they've acknowledged that, like all companies in the online advertising business, they're engaged in a constant battle with scammers and crooks trying to game the system for ad dollars. Because the sites in the DAP network are all government-funded and not ad-supported, there's no incentive for botnets to try to rig the traffic stats.

For NetMarketShare in particular, I'm highly skeptical of the wild gyrations in each category from month to month. Is it really believable that usage of Windows 7 worldwide plunged by a full percentage point from October to November, representing 15 million PCs, and then climbed by an equal amount the following month?

That result strains credibility to the breaking point, especially when compared to what you would expect as Windows 7 machines slowly retire from the installed base and are replaced by newer machines running Windows 10. And if you look at the actual traffic from DAP and StatCounter, that's exactly what you see, a steady but small decline in Windows 7 usage month over month.

StatCounter has an additional problem with its data -- one that isn't visible in the charts here. Over the last six months of 2016, a staggeringly high number of visitors were counted as Unknown. For the first four months of that period, the Unknown category was 5.9 percent of all visitors. StatCounter acknowledged that that was a problem and the number has since dropped, but it's still at a couple percentage points and makes me suspicious of who those visitors are and what OS they're running.

The DAP data is the most transparent of all but has its own problem when one tries to compare it to worldwide measurements. It tends to over count US visitors relative to those in the rest of the world, and it skews in favor of a wealthier demographic of business owners and people who can afford to travel and do business internationally.

Microsoft, of course, could help resolve some of this confusion by releasing an updated count of monthly active users of Windows 10. The last report, more than four months ago, pegged that number at 400 million, which would have been between 25 and 30 percent of the installed base of 1.5 billion Windows PCs.

Today, I suspect that the Windows 10 installed base has grown to roughly a third of PCs in use worldwide, which would put the base of monthly active users at 500 million. (I'm hoping Microsoft will update that number next month when it announces availability dates for the Windows 10 Creators Update.)

And then there's the question of those stubborn Windows 7 users. I suspect most of them are holding on to this aging but still serviceable OS because they understand how to manage it and don't have to deal with the update headaches of Windows as a Service.

This year will be especially crucial when measuring whether Microsoft can successfully avoid another XP-style support crisis. If the population of Windows 7 users is still hovering in the 40-percent range at the end of 2017, that's a sign of a significant problem on the horizon.
