Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

The Windows 10 fall Creators Update arrived this morning.

After the usual long download, install and then updating bits after I first log on (that last bit is really irritating – thought it was going away) I got into the machine.

First impression is that there are some minor cosmetic changes. Some icons (extensions) appear on the Edge menu bar that I didn’t have before and don’t want now so I have to waste my time undoing changes Microsoft, in their infinite wisdom, have imposed on me because they know better than I do how I want to work!  same with automatically adding the People icon to the taskbar. Stop changing my settings!

So what’s in FCU. Unless you’re a developer – on the surface there’s not a lot to be honest.

Having feature updates every 6 months is a great idea but actually getting something useful would be better. Maybe some of the new features in PowerShell v6 being back ported would be a good one.
