    Agreeing to Terms of Use

    Hello

    My phone will not let me use certain apps on my phone until I have accepted the Terms of Use.

    I have been searching for the 'accept button' but I cannot find it anywhere.

    Where can I agree to the Terms of Use so I can use my apps and download over the internet again?

    Hey Jeff,

    Yeah, it appears that we'll have to wait until the 21st to know the exact changes to the terms of use. This was just a notice that they will be changing.

    Isn't it grand, how corporate America feels they can, just change the terms, whenever they wish. It is just like my bank and credit card companies.

    Well I can't image it will be bad for the those participating in the program, probably just updating them for the new build coming out.

    Who will test if they make it too difficult to comply with the terms??

    Windows Insider Program: Changes to Terms of Use‏

    There have been posts on the Technet forums, regarding the contents of the 2nd para quote:

    "Download and install the preview only if you



    • Want to try out software that’s still in development and like sharing your opinion about it.
    • Don’t mind lots of updates or a UI design that might change significantly over time.
    • Really know your way around a PC and feel comfortable troubleshooting problems, backing up data, formatting a hard drive, installing an operating system from scratch or restoring your old one if necessary.
    • Know what an ISO file is and how to use it.
    • Aren't installing it on your everyday computer.

    We're not joking about the expert thing. So if you think BIOS is a new plant-based fuel, Tech Preview may not be right for you"



    The last line may be the significant one.


    Item 2. There have been numerous posts regarding problems relating to the Update procedure.

    Item 3. It is most obvious, from postings on forums, that many who are "testing" , are only using the beta from curiosity, but have no idea of the more sophisticated ins and outs of a computer.

    Item 4 Believe it or not, I have been on forums where even the question has been What is an ISO and what do I do with it. I could quote one where the user copied the ISO to a DVD and could not understand why it would not boot up.

    Item 5. We are all aware, even with posts on this forum, that users are installing and using this as there princial, albeit temporary, OS .

    Possibly MS are planning to limit the ability to download, to , as yet unspecified, groups of users, to eliminate some of the uninformed feedback

    "So if you think BIOS is a new plant-based fuel, Tech Preview may not be right for you", I love it, best description for a lot of my customers (and most relatives).

    Why would they do that, especially if Microsoft is planning on releasing a consumer preview soon? I see nothing wrong with general consumers using it without feedback, just using windows 10 reports issues to Microsoft. The more testers the better the operating system hopefully.

    Could Microsoft (I might of said this in another thread)planning to have different versions of windows 10 to test?


    Windows 10 home premium preview for home users to test.

    Windows 10 pro preview for advanced computer users, Home business, Small Business, Small corporations, Smaller Non-profit

    Windows 10 enterprise for big business, government, bigger non-profit

    This way Microsoft gets a well rounded view and everyone gets to test it?

    For example if I decided to test windows 10 again. I would choose the home premium preview to test, that the version I already have with windows 7. Even though I could do the windows 10 pro preview because I consider myself an advanced computer user to an extent.
