    how to set up a linked inbox with other non Microsoft accounts (google, yahoo and my work) like I had in win 8.1?
    I just loaded WP10 today as well. My emails are all on the phone, but the inboxes are individually selectable, I'd also like to see how to set up a linked inbox for all my accounts.
    Also, lots of my apps are missing...
    I also have some missing files. I had MS Office on my WP8.1, but am surprised not to find it on WP10. Is it hiding somewhere?

    There are other challenges, mostly just finding how to make adjustments as needed.

    As I said earlier...at this point you can't show all of your accounts together in build 10166. Hoping that changes.

    Sure, you can still have them. If you let the install restore your apps they will be downloaded or you can install them yourself. However, take a look at the new Microsoft Maps, it can replace Here Maps, Here Drive and Here Transit. So far I'm keeping those on too just in case, but I do like Maps quite a lot.
    I've kept mine as well. I've tried Microsoft Maps a little, it seems fine. I wish there was a way to customize it a little, I used Here Drive with another language for the verbal navigation, no obvious way to make that happen with Microsoft Maps.

    How to install Windows Phone 10 Technical Preview


    9) Very important : Hard reset the phone
    10) Now install all the apps that you need, from the store.
    Couple of things I would need clarification on.

    After step 9 can you restore from backup for apps and settings or should I use store and get it one by one?

    I got the update 2 on my 1020 using the Insider loophole which I guess is fixed now! If I get into the insiders now and did a recovery for some reason I would go back to 8.1 Update right? or is there a possibility to get update 2?

    cheers

    Is there any other way of installing the preview. As my download always stops at 80%

    Any other way. I have a developer account, if it helps. I just need any other. I tried downloading the preview for around 8 since 2 days and it always stops between 70% to 80%...

    HELP HELP HELP

    Hi all,

    how long does the installation of WM10 preview usually take?
    I followed the instructions and the installation process finally works (before I always got teh strange 0x80070020 error code).
    The installation bar is at 100% for like 10 minutes. I used the "insider slow" option in the app.
    Is that normal? How long should I wait before I can consider the phone crashed?

    /E: Forget about it. It just finished and is now migrating data. Whatever there is to migrate on a freshly reset phone. :)

    Are we still using this sticky to get Win10 preview installed? I know that changes happen all the time with this kind of thing and I want to make sure that it's still common practice to hard reset first, then start as a new phone, then Windows Insider, etc etc etc or is there another order of operations?

    Thanks!

    Technically, to get the best results you want to hard reset after installing Win10 and not restore from backup. Start fresh

    So no need then to hard reset BEFORE installing the Win10 preview as that sticky says?

    Why would you do that, I don't see a purpose.

    Me neither. I just figure if it's a sticky someone had to think that method was useful?

    Doing a hard reset in 8.1 will give a fresh 8.1 experience, and I already had that, 640 came with the update 2, so no purpose.

    I'd only hard reset before installing Insider Preview if you have a lot of apps installed. Migration takes longer, and it seems there's a higher chance something will go wrong in the process.

    Far more useful to hard reset after installation of W10.

    I'm going to be annoying now... How many apps is a lot?
    Also... I'm guessing that the idea is to never restore your apps in Win10 tech preview? You HAVE to install them one by one again to not have problems?

    It's both the number of apps that matter and how much data and configurational data they've collectively stored. You can have only three apps, but if each of them manages half a GB of data than I'd very much prefer a hard reset to begin with. Storage Sense can give you an idea of both.

    If you're only going to do one hard reset, do it after updating. There's usually no reason to limit yourself to that though, so I'd recommend doing both as suggested.

    You don't have to. Everything/Anything you do with the insider preview you do at your own risk. Doing so is just the only way to ensure you'll get the best possible experience (considering its still under construction). You can ignore it and might be lucky to not suffer any negative consequences, you might not be.

    Ok, good to know and makes sense. I guess if you're going to hard reset anyway later why not do it one more time. What's the proper way to hard reset, by the way because the last time I thought I had done it it turns out I didn't do it the "correct" way because I only used a button combo.
