[OFFICIAL] Windows 10 (Build 10.0.10240) discussion & upgrade experience

Is the reserve app not available anymore? Windows update does not offer it for my laptops and when I went to join the insider thing it is not available anymore either (except the mobile version). I guess they don't want me to have it until the 29th.

I doubt you still need an answer but sometimes it takes a few days to show up.  I assume it's just only activating on so many boxes at a time.

On a tablet, you have to manually open the keyboard whenever you need to type in a textbox in a win32 program.

In universal apps, it's kind of iffy for the keyboard to pop up automatically.

In tablet mode, everything, including all compmgmt modules open in full screen (e.g. device manager).

 

Gah! Extremely annoying and frustrating.

NO,I've asked why you skip Edge.

IE is kinda off. :)

 

you got me confused reading this. i dont see him saying anything about using ie or edge, but you went off in the deep in with it lol

 

his explorer.exe is constantly crashing. that the core of windows ui. not ie the browser.

 

How did you upgrade to windows 10? Did you use an iso someone else made and put online, or something else?

if its fresh as you say then i presume you dont have any third party anti virus tools and such?

Hey Cortana is still bugged so I'm surprised this is going to RTM. It stops responding to me and I have to disable it and re-enable it to get it working again.

I can't install any app from the Store. Still getting error code 0x80070002. I tried everything what I found regarding this issue on microsoft sites but nothing helps. There should be some solution for this, I don't want to perform full reset now just because of this.

Any idea?

Lost my activation today when I upgraded my mobo and CPU. To be expected I guess.

For w10? Reinstall 8 if possible and do that activation then reupgrade if you need it fixed before the 29th.

So if I'm signed in with my Microsoft Account,  I can't use the xbox app for my account on my xbox...

 

My Microsoft account is an @outlook.com

 

my account on my Xbox one is an @gmail.com one. 

It trys making me sign in with my already signed in account. 

Last two or three builds I tried this happened.

Upgraded my enterprise iso to 10 today

 

* Start Screen XML broke the windows 10 start screen after the upgrade, All the items are ripped from their respective 8.1 groups and placed in one big 3 icon with row. After disabling the start screen xml gpo and restarting I cant rearrange any start screen items.

* running it in HyperV enhanced session mode causes constant reconnects

* edge has a total of 8 group policy's completely and utterly not fit for business

I don't know if anyone has noticed this but after I upgraded my Win 8.1 Pro box to Win 10 RTM, I noticed that some of my Win 10 apps don't work like the Store, Mail, Calendar and OneNote. I get this error message that "This app can't open. Check the Windows Store for more info about Mail." I will try to uninstall the Stardock Start8 Menu and see.....

You have to go to the store for app updates...

You probably need Start10 anyways. I don't see the appeal of a start replacement for 10 though. 8 yes, but not 10.

What if I want to repartition my drive with a clean install of windows 10? (I want to do this)

If I'll upgrade my win8.1 install to win10, then my win8.1 key becomes a win10 key? Or wtf. It's a shame that there is still no information about this.

you upgrade form 8.1 to 10 it becomes the 10 key and 8.1 will nolonger activate. it also has been said you can do a clean install ONCE you have upgraded from a win7/8/8.1 install i presume so it can do all the activation ###### first

Not seen mention of old keys getting nulled after the upgrade?

I uninstalled Start8 and got Start10 beta. I still have the same problems tho...cannot run Store or other Win10 apps. I did a chkdsk and sfc /scannow but nothing works...pretty weird!

Try the reset in recovery in settings. It will solve the problems.

Total nonsense, your windows 8 key will still work. It would be legal nightmare if a company where to pull jokes like that.

Maybe not at once (being able to use the same key for Windows 7/8.1 with 10). However:?

 

"Downgrade rights. As with all recent Windows releases, buying a PC with a Professional version of Windows installed by the OEM includes the right to downgrade to either of the two earlier versions, in this case Windows 7 Professional or Windows 8.1 Pro. The new agreement specifies an end date for those downgrade rights, which are valid "only for so long as Microsoft provides support for that earlier version." Under the 10-year Microsoft support lifecycle , that means downgrade rights for Windows 7 end in January 2020, and the clock runs out on Windows 8.1 in January 2023."

But what about Win 7 Home Premium version? No downgrade rights for us?
