17074 is now on the Slow Ring. Lots of fixes and UI changes. Here's what I noticed so far:


Cortana in Settings



Quiet Hours overhaul (btw System left hand pane is darker now)



Display has new option "Fix scaling for apps", Storage got new option "Change how we free up space automatically", Sound is in Settings now



Keyboard is now in Time & language. Language packs are now in the Store



Right-click on Windows Defender brings Quick Scan, Update Now and Notification Settings. Yaaaaaaaaaaaay!


Tons of changes for Edge and Cortana but I don't gaf about them.

As long as ShutUpTen software keeps up with all the updates I will be happy camper. "Apply All" in that software has made life so much nicer.

While I haven't switched over full-time, I won't use 10 without ShutUpTen and a few others.

took 5-12 minutes to install on the various machines around the house, only one to have an issue was on my 4K HDR screen - had to tap the power button to shut down and reboot at the final end, because it tried to run an incompatible color setup and went black at the final login screen.

Not in the mood for ESD fiddling (had ESD ISO in the past and it was a bit problematic for certain things). Any info when proper ISO availability is planned?

Eh, fuck it, I'll just use ESD. My OS needs refreshing anyway so chances I'll reinstall it clean soon is high anyway.

Alright, the Decryptor also allows you to convert install.esd to install.wim, turning ESD package into a regular ISO. Which is nice to know.

I acquired a windows mixed reality headset (basically a cheapo vive) and support is utterly broken in this latest build - had to rollback to 1703.

Wouldn't even download the required drivers/software. Fortunately the built in rollback feature in 10 took about 2 minutes (seriously, it was fast) and now its working

I've made a clean install of Spring Update. The upgrade had really crappy graphics performance in Killing Floor 2 for some reason. When in trader time without any monsters, mouse was actually way smoother than before. But during combat, framerate goes stupendously low even for GTX 1080Ti, something I wasn't getting with Fall Creators Update. I guess NVIDIA isn't quite up to speed with it yet or something.

Yayyy! :D Just noticed that in 1803 you can set GPU affinity by app/game manually. No more GPU confusion with systems that have integrated and dedicated GPU

win+i -> system -> display -> Graphics Settings (Graphics performance preference) -> Choose an app to set preference -> Browse -> …

RS4 has been rock solid stable for me, RS3 had ton of issues. Very nice indeed. Did a clean install two nights ago.

Thanks a billion for this, but could you maybe reverse the order so that the latest versions are at the top of the list? Pretty please?

Yup it's pretty stable! And installs/upgrades much faster than previous versions.

I can't believe how can Windows be so clumsy with regional settings.

If I pick language to be ENGLISH and region to be Slovenia with Slovenian keyboard, how about setting my interface to English, regional settings like time, time format and date format and currency to Slovenian and Euro and keyboard to Slovenian?

It seems like controls on first page of the installation literally lead nowhere because I end up having English interface with 3 different screwups of keyboard configurations, one being EN-SL, one English and one Slovenian for no apparent reason and my time and date formats all messed up in US format. It's absurd. It took them 4 freaking updates that integrated apps like Music, Photos and Calculator don't get localized in my own language despite me wanting to use English interface. I had to hack half of the settings to have everything in English.

I mean, how bloody hard can it be? It's a matter of 3! variables that get stored properly from very first 3 selections of Windows installer. Language, Region and Keyboard. That's all. And they just can't fix it properly. I just don't get it how presumably professional company like Microsoft cannot achieve this. It's mind blowing.

After testing out the RS4 build, i like everything it changed (the GPU control setting alone is frigging awesome!) except that it broke the VR :/

Had to downgrade half the systems in the house, since its being bounced around (sitting games in the gaming room, standing ones in the lounge, etc)

What is the GPU control setting you are referring to?

Right click on desktop, Display Settings, there is a second option to specify apps that should use full graphic card performance. He probably means that one. You can set either Windows 10 apps or regular Win32 binaries.
