    Welcome to the Windows 10 Technical Preview Discussion area!

    As we move closer to a Windows 10 release, it has become apparent that new sections will need to be added for our members, early pre-release testers, and enthusiasts. Please enjoy using this section. As more time and effort is placed into this area, more information can be added.

    Please, specifically see this thread for all of the information you may find informative about Windows 10:

    And, of course, for those interested in what Windows 10 is, you can visit the official Microsoft website for this information:

    When they removed the regular version of Internet Explorer from the start page, I gave up. Hope they put it back someday.

    Hi,
    follow the arrows:
    update1.
    Then
    update 2.

    You'll then see windows Update. You cannot do much apart from click to see if there's an update and get it to notify it needs to restart. Much has changed and not for the better but that's just my opinion.

    I really don't want to argue, specially not with you, but is not the start menu as presented in build 9962, perfect match between the two worlds of PC and tablet?

    I don't see that I said it was - lol. It is just an old start menu - nothing to do with Windows Tech previews.

    This is, of course, for those who would like to keep the Desktop (not tablet) with something like Windows 7 had. It works alongside the Build menu, with its own icon, so nothing is lost.

    Each to their own;

    As for that bottle blond so and so… seams she dislikes Aussies so I told her to piss off my task bar and I have the programs list by my clock because I find that less invasive.

    Possible vmware bug:
    Screenshot (290).
    I have tools installed and just spotted the v-machine thinks my battery is flat... which its not. I have wmware 10 and there is a new one out but I wonder if anyone else has this issue.

    Yes thanks Kemical, I did a bit of digging as well... it isn't just a vmware thing as Hyper-v shows the same error.

    I must say, for a system that they claim will use less I find this last build a shit... takes forever and a day to do a clean install.

    I kept quiet on that one. I use old equipment for tests - Helps to put it through its paces. With Windows 8 I got hammered on the forums for commenting disparagingly, on install times, so, ditto this build. Cant really remember Windows 7 anymore, but this, over recent months, was the longest install ( to Desktop) I have experienced.. Anyone disagreeing, and you are welcome, please include the huge time from booting into the DVD, that it takes to put the program into memory and check your equipment.- About 7 minutes for me.

    That nasty "I'am afraid I'm not available to help in your region" window snapped on to the IE window that happened to be on the screen that time and stayed there, no way to refresh. Weird.....

    No but the word is there is a new one due out soon.

    Lots of dirrect X driver issues with g-card and sound... not something Microsoft has much exp with... the network tools are solid.

    By design, and not going anywhere!

    Thanks the space background is an old brice design I made with 3d max (years ago) and the island is mostly steam punk bits and bobs from the DeviantArt website layered into photoshop... happy to post the psd so you can play with it when I'm finished work mate.

    Edit: two links;

    1. The basic psd files zipped with 7z (4.6mb)
    2. The full set of files with extra junk also zipped with 7z... big file warning (95mb)
