Windows 10

Posted by: | July 29, 2015 Comments Off on Windows 10 |

Went through the Windows 10 upgrade procedure this morning. Fairly quick process – just over the hour including download on a slow broadband link. Most of my settings from Windows 8.1 were saved.


So far impressions are reasonable to good.


PowerShell 5.0 is installed

The Edge browser (IE replacement) is missing functionality for managing favourites and doesn’t appear to incorporaet an RSS feed reader. IE is still available – hunt through program files to get to the exe.


The Mail app doesn’t supply a unified view across all mailboxes.


The big improvement over Windows 8/8.1 is that you get a unified view of applications. No more metro style or desktop. Everything runs on the desktop though the lack of a left and bottom border on the PowerShell console is weird.


So far nothing leaps out as a show stopper
