    Actually if I'm being honest I would uninstall Cortana completely if I could. It's probably the only feature of 10 that I don't actually like.
    So really, I don't expect Cortana to learn anything about me.

    I'm pretty sure they don't need to know what's on my calender to make the OS better.

    Well I had a pop up for it the first time I loaded up a game. I'm surprised you didn't. 
    Also, surprisingly, the xbox button on an xbox game pad brings up the mini console for it too. I'm pretty sure it's the first time in the many years since I've been using an xbox 360 controller that that button has done anything.
    Another thing is that you can customize the buttons in the xbox app under settings > Game DVR.

    Whats wrong with alchemy? Having a lightning potion that lasts 2+ minutes is quite useful on death march difficulty.
    I wouldn't put a lot of points into alchemy but there are some useful things in there.

    If he's experiencing the same bug that I am none of that fixes it. They're fine when they're medium size or bigger but once you change them back to small they go back to being misaligned.
    But as I said a reboot does the trick (for me at least). Not perfect but it works.
    Keep them small sized then reboot.

    I've been seeing the same thing. It's not a perfect fix but a reboot usually gets them back to how they should be.

    I'll give Edge an honest try if/when they add extension support for it.

    And here I was thinking 30 seconds was a lot longer than the 17-18 I had gotten used to with Windows 7. I thought it was supposed to be faster not slower. 
    I've read that if you're using a samsung ssd with rapid mode on that it can actually slow Windows 10 down in certain ways, such as boot times. So if that's you then it might be worth turning rapid mode off until Samsung releases an official version of their magician software for 10.

    Why do you care so much?

    And what if your device is just old enough (but still works just fine) that it's not worth the people who make it to have new drivers?
    It's not so simple as just waiting.
    I found a community maintained driver that works. But I'll be keeping this page bookmarked for future reference.

    Maybe I just wasn't paying attention but I thought it was more or less like googles analytics that would help tailor searches (and other things) to your interests when using Cortana?
    In any case you can turn both of those options off during the installation process as it clearly shows in the OPs screen shots.

    Windows 10 and Asus Sound card drivers - quick fix
    So after upgrading to Windows 10 it appeared everything worked great (to my surprise). But I found out that my Asus Xonar D2 drivers were completely out of date. The menus in the control panel for the card were all blank and none of the buttons for it would work such as the volume slider and other sound settings.
    Looking around the internet the only thing I initially found to help was to install the Windows 8.1 drivers but Windows wouldn't let me do that.
    So I dug further and I found a custom made driver here:
    http://maxedtech.com/asus-xonar-unified-drivers/
    The installation was pretty easy, probably completed more quickly than an official driver install and following a quick reboot it looks like everything is working as it should.
    Maybe this is common knowledge, I don't know. But it was new and this was something I really hadn't considered when upgrading to Windows 10.
    There aren't any beta version of any drivers for Windows 10 as far as I can tell so this is probably the best we're gonna get for a long time.
    I don't know how popular Asus sound cards are and how many people have them here so I don't know if anyone even cares but I hope it may help some one in the near future.
