So I've seen posts talking about MS probably moving Cortana from next to the start menu on the taskbar,  to the right in the systray, between the clock and the action center.  No signs of this in the newest fast ring build but I find the move pretty interesting.

Is anyone else able to get Text messages to work in the new insiders build. I installed cortona on android and I get phone notifications just not Text messages. It's actually not even an option under what notifications get synced. It shows up on the android side just not the windows side. I wondered if they moved it to people, but it doesn't work there either.

I've only seen notifications for missed calls and text msgs but I never tried to reply to a text on my desktop.  I don't have the newest insider build installed either.

How do I revert back to the latest stable build? I remember doing that a couple times in the past but I don't see the option to do it anymore. When I click the option to do it, it just puts me in the control panel section where I can choose between a clean install  or an install where I keep my files but lose apps.

 

In the past, I was able to just select an option to remove the insider build and revert to the previous build I was on which was the latest public release. Do they no longer allow that?

I've been using the last build as my primary OS on my couch computer. No issues, rock solid. But it's installed on a second hard drive. I have an msata card with the lastest creator update if I ever have to go back.

If you really don't want to run these builds in a test VM, then the best option is to dual boot just in case something goes bonkers on your system.

Did someone unplug the Feedback app? Seems not to be loading anything.

Does anyone off the top of their head know where these registry keys are stored? I'd like to remove the two orphaned entries for products I no longer have installed. Tried to search google but wasn't sure the correct terms to use, so I was overwhelmed with the search results and most of them were not what I needed.

EDIT: found them under HKCR, Vivaldi and Chrome had entries there.

Just wondering, how did you uninstall them?  Did you use their own uninstallers or did you do it through Windows' add/remove programs in settings?

Has anyone been experiencing crashes with the Remote Desktop win32 application? Out of the blue, the application will crash and doesn't give me much info. I didn't notice this on the last build, but on 17025 I am seeing this.

I used appwiz.cpl to remove them, I believe this uses their own uninstaller but I could be wrong.

This topic seems a bit dead, maybe because it's so long 300+ pages, and no ones going to even think about digging through all of that.  I wonder if we should unpin it and start over with a new one picking up with the current RS5 builds?

reason why this topic is so unpopular because people lost fate in MS, doesn't matter what you ask for, or what feedback to provide, MS still does whatever the hell they want.

 

most of the feedback gets ignored, they simply don't care.

That's really not how it works.  They get feedback from a lot of people, not just you and people like you.

I think a lot of people had a little too much 'fun' with the insider program and bowed out.  I know I did for the most part.  :/

Wasn't entirely sure if my post would be good in here, or under software, but lets try this first. I am on insider build 17666 and Office Insider 1806. When I open Outlook, I am prompted to enter a username and email for my work or school account, it auto fills with my Microsoft Account but wont take. If I remove the account and reopen outlook, the popup is gone. Last night I added the account back and everything seemed fine. I closed and opened outlook multiple times, however, today I am not facing the same issue. Is this a known bug or has anyone experienced this?
