    Windows looks different after huge win10 update


    Win10 suddenly restarted without asking for my permission today (i thought i had disabled that, it must have been re-enabled by a sneaky windows update). it looked like a huge update, instead of simply restarting once, i got a screen saying that windows would restart multiple times and after logging in, i got a splash screen saying something like "Hi, we are preparing new updates for you, do not turn off your PC". After everything had finished, I noticed the following changes : -My desktop wallpaper had been changed -I was getting security center notifications that my firewall was turned off (i had it turned off previously, but had also turned off the notifications, so it seems like the notifications were reset) -Windows Shell told me it was setting up for my "new operating system" -My taskbar was now a permanent light blue colour instead of changing based on the colour of the application I have opened, which looks awful (see the first screenshot) Whats going on? The most annoying thing is how the task bar and background of applications look. Previously, with discord open, the taskbar would change colours to match discord, now it remains a permanent light blue and it looks awful.

    :)

    Win10: windows update stuck at never ending loop ?

    When in win10:
    • Update&security -> Windows update -> Finding update... .... .... ....
    Planning to download the latest Win10.ISO (vers.1803) and manually update:
    - Then wait that my ordered new SSD arrives and clone the old HDD to it.

    Win10 updates

    The initial one was KB3035583 to get the Get Windows 10 app (GWX). Though that particular update is probably pages upon dozens of pages down the list by now.
