    RTM via upgrade - Control panel doesn't work


    Hi there

    After an upgrade to RTM - if you try and run Control panel from the start button (right mouse) it appears but you can't do anything with it -- and it eventually disappears so you can't access any of the items on it any more.

    I know you can do a lot of things in Settings via the menu -- but IMO if Control Panel doesn't work then it should be removed from any menu.

    Cheers

  2. Background Slideshow in Windows 10

    A: You can: either via Picture mode or via Slideshow mode. One is single-picture mode, one is single-folder mode.

    B: You kind of can, but there is a bug in folder selection in Windows 10 RTM's Settings application's Personalization :: Background page. That bug is fixed in current Windows Insider builds, which will be coming your way at some future date.

    As you're noting, the Personalization :: Background page was rewritten / reimplemented in Windows 10 as a Settings page not a control panel. In that transition some functionality changed, and some was lost. The current Windows Insider builds should improve
    your experience here: as noted that will be available at some unknown future date when that goes RTM.

    For now, you can also run this:

    control /name Microsoft.Personalization /page pageWallpaper

    from a WIN+R (Run) prompt to use the old control panel.

  3. "We couldn't reserve your upgrade"

    As I mentioned, clicking on the "Get Windows 10" app doesn't work. I tried updating via the Windows Update control panel and that didn't work either.
