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.
this is all it shows for me when i do that... drop down just says universal app... :/ did my win 10 install wrong?

Is there an ISO build for this update? Not a fan of ESD's.. Converting them is a hit or miss affair.
The decryptor actually allows you to turn ESD into a full fledged ISO. Even with install.wim instead of install.esd. Plus you can strip away all editions that you don't need. I only need Home and Pro. One for laptop and one for desktop. It's really easy to use too. It's console tool with simulated interface.

there is. i downloaded ISO with this method, and then used Rufus to mount USB, flawless and 0 issues.



Media Creation Tool

download this and place into root of C drive products

3) Run Command Prompt As Admin

4) Type CD\ to go back to the root of C:\

5) Type mediacreationtool.exe /selfhost

and then instead of create usb flash drive, choose ISO options.

Media creation tool doesn't download iso. It downloads the same esd and convertes it into iso using the same decryption algorithm.

Is Spring Creators Update already on Media Creation Tool? Looking over the page, it looks like it is still Fall Creators Update. I got the impression MCT won't have SCU until at least April 10.

Eh? Media Creation Tool can write a bootable ISO directly to USB. No need for Rufus or anything else.

I have MCT downloading.

So is that CU more than likely going to be bundled with the official release of 1803?

I'm going to hold off in any case.

Only big bug I've found is the bricked Core Isolation feature that cannot be turned off once it's enabled. Other than that, everything else seems to work fine.
