  2. Well majority of users hate 8 because of missing real Start, so if MS would include it in 8.2, they would have no reason to buy 10. And it is not just about Start, it is also about MS ignoring, what users want.

  3. Error Code Windows 10 Update

    I started the update to 10 and got the following error code: C1900101-40019. My limited brain did research and found this code in reference to Windows 8.1, but not 10. Any idea what this code might mean? TIA

    Windows 10 haven't updated to version 1511 --- How to find product key

    I haven't run the ISO disk as of yet, I want the current product key in hand, on a post it note, prior to doing that, not interested in MS bullS**T about it not being needed. 2 hours online with tech support and they can't cope with the question of how
    can the current product key be accessed in windows 10.

    I've never owned a Apple product, but I can never see buying or having another MS product in my household after this.

  5. After I installed Media Center the watermark changed to Windows 8.1 Pro With Media Center Technical Preview Evaluation Build. I've since gone back to 8.1 on that PC so I can't check the wording now. When I first saw it I had to do a double check to make sure I downloaded the correct ISO from MSDN. For a brief instant I wondered it I had some how downloaded one of the old Tech Previews. Then I remembered turning off the Start Menu and that this was Windows 10, not 8.1. It had me really confused for a bit though.

    EDIT: you can see the watermark in the screen shot in this post,

    Hopefully they "deliver" Windows 10 as a free update. It will be a much longer wait than if they had given us Update 2 but I will forgive them (maybe) if Win 10 is free.

    I saw that the other night when I was poking around through the registry and Group Policy to see what controls the Search and Task View buttons on the Taskbar and how one could remove them. I figured it was a reference to the August update.... But the GP Policy that this was under is for the enterprise and how deployments can use an exported .xml file that keeps the Start Screen layout intact, at least for the modern apps. I had SUCH a pickle of time with that when I was trying to get Desktop apps and File Explorer tiles to show on the Start Screen because after a DISM deployment, none of the Desktop items were pinned to Start but were kept under All Apps but in the directories for the Start Screen; they had the shortcut links there but the UI wasn't reflecting that. That was uber frustrating, apparently for some reason using a Microsoft Account is what fixed it...
