    I cannot believe they shipped windows 10 like this. Here are my beefs so far:

    1: Major annoyance: Whenever i leave my Surface Pro 3 slumbering and i come back, Edge and Mail are frozen and i can only click X,shut them down and open them again. What the truck kinda piece of poopoo software even does that? (Sorry) but i basically have 1700$ of hardware that stops me from doing simple things. (i'm running my second clean install)
    2: Major annoyance: My onenote does not work. It just crashes. (and now since it's embedded more or less, you cannot re-install).
    3: Major annoyance: My emails stop syncing and tells me 5 times a day: OUT OF DATE! (What does that even mean). No fix!
    4: Major annoyance: For the first time in computer history, i have a computer with a mail app that won't allow me to delete multiple mails.
    5: Major annoyance: I can't have different tile priority in my start menu compared to my "TOUCH" tablet mode, and.... i can only have 3 tiles next to each other (max.) and... i have to resize them individually and... i had to re-pin them indiviually to my modes too.... ARGHHHH!!!!!
    6: Major annoyance: Tiles re-ordering is like shoving a pancake thru a keyhole. Frustrating like nothing else! I had to try 5 times to re-organize 1 icon!!!!! 5 times!!!!
    7: Major annoyance: Picture password is like the first version of an android phone, sooo slowww... I can never log in on first attempt unless i take each stroke with extreme patience. Pretty darn crazy dumb! If you ask me. IT WORKED BEFORE! Why make it worse?. Did they not test this?
    8: Major annoyance: Why did they drop the DESKTOP tile???? Why couldn't that be a tablet/desktop switcher? Seriously!!!!!!
    9: Mild annoyance: Edge has some issues when your typing long and fast in some forums and it freezes once a day! Minimum!
    10: Mild annoyance: The borderless windows aren't really borderless. Try running an green theme and open Groove. Uhhh nice clash of blue and green! I'm not 10 years old microsoft!? And if i wanted high contrast i would prefer to have the option of saying NO THX! (how about some transparent borders plz????)
    11: Mild annoyance: Three finger swipe up on touchpad gives you a nice animation, swipe back: NO ANIMATION!
    12: Mild annoyance: Market place is slow and the profile/downloads section is a mess.
    13: OMG I COULD KEEP GOING!!!!!!



    FIX THIS!!!!! PLZZZZZZ

    1. Inability to change tile color for desktop apps individually for easier grouping and recognition. Unless your accent is medium gray color hunting for all those pinned apps will be fun on same colored tiles. Windows 8.1 at least assigns colors automatically so you know orange tile is Adobe Illustrator while blue tile is Photoshop.

    2. Inability to change the window frame color. This is a big one and completely unnecessarily removed from Windows 10. I understand they are back to desktop environment again so when you pick accent color it affect everything but window's frame should have been at least darker instead of burning white. Better yet let us customize it once again.

    3. No Desktop tile on Start Screen or click/tap anywhere on the background to get back to desktop. How come no one thought about this is beyond me as they were always clicking on the left lower corner to go back to desktop instead of anywhere on the screen as long as its not a tile. They removed hot corners yet they force you to go to the corner.

    4. App list on Start Screen is a joke compared to Windows 8.1. Why no full screen without damn folder clicking?

    5. Icons in charm notifications in Windows 8.1 are larger and better looking.

    6. Project screen on Miracast in Windows 8.1 is three clicks away.

    7. Stacking of Windows is a nice feature saved from Win8.1 but why they don't let us scale it properly like in Win8.1? Why only 50/50 split? If I try to make it wider it goes over other app instead of shortening the other app

    9. Changing between the apps with left flick on the touchpad is gone.

    8. Windows 8.1 was right to treat desktop as separate environment but it was too early. Sooner or later Windows will come back to Win8.1 principles. Charms had its purpose. It was a unified options menu on each app.

    A release like this has to be planned months out. You take the best information you have, project a likely finish date, and announce it. In this case, July 29. If they actually waited till it was done, then announced, it may have been out at Thanksgiving. Microsoft knows the market wants this update, and needs to reverse the Windows 8 bad reputation.
    Are little things still somewhat undone, maybe. Are some people treating every legitimate and well thought out change as a fail? maybe.

    Go with it, start getting used to it, work with the annoyances, and before you know it, it'll be natural.

    I'm just glad to see that this opinion isn't common. People lost faith in Win 8 before they really gave it a chance. It started with a bunch of articles written by people who either didn't want change or didn't want to learn something new, and avalanched out of control.

    At least most people are accepting this OS.

    I really like Windows 10...if you want more groups of tiles to display you have to change the size of the text, apps, and other items in Settings> System > Display. I've gotten my start screen off to a decent start. screenshot-2-.png

    Groove Music App on Windows 10
    I don't see a way to view our music by genre! Do I missing something? How come something like this was not even implanted on first place?

    I installed back my old dinosaur ZUNE! ZUNE is still the best!

    If you view your music in the album view, then you can sort by genre.

    It sounds like you guys with a lot of problems either need to do a clean install, or if you already have then do a repeat clean install. I did a clean install on my surface pro 3 and was getting poor battery life, did another and now it's better battery life than W8.1 (not to mention some minor glitches went away). It's running well for me on 3 of my pcs.

    Funny how people are saying W8/W7 is so much better, but they had all these problems and more at launch (in the case of W7 I'm referring to vista).

    True I know a clean install for me did wonders. It sped up my Surface 3 with 2gb I was freaking out because it seemed like everything was extra slow after I upgraded.

    Lets all be honest... Windows 10 is a train wreck, and wasn't ready to be released. Here's my ten reasons why I hate windows 10
    As someone who mostly uses Mac's, except when it comes to gaming, I have to disagree with you. Win 10 is _FAR_ from a train wreck, that might be Win ME, Vista or 8, but using Win 10 for the last 6 months has largely been an enjoyable experience. (inside VMWare on a Mac, until release day where I replaced my Win 7 install on my PC).

    I won't disagree that it has some rough edges (like indicating that there is a notification when there isn't one - like after booting up) but it certainly was in a releasable state, though they could equally have waited another 3-6 months to add more polish. Live Tiles all being one colour, except for certain MS tiles is a bit of a shame, but its used to highlight there stuff. I'm sure that soon enough someone will release a program that will let you set tile colours as you want.

    Wow, that should really have solved a lot of problems!
    W10/W8.1 switching via the desktop tile instead of this so badly working "tablet mode".

    Ok, after using WIndows 10 more and more, it's still unfnished (CLEAN INSTALL), assorted hangs are common, Even going in WIndows Explorer to find files, it will hang and just give me the spinning hourglass (or what ever it is now) and about 30 seconds later Explorer will crash (a few times now, after clicking back and forth on different drives).

    Some programs that ran fine in 8.1 dont even open in 10...3 so far....

    Some dead ends here and there, This is starting to really feel like Vista all over again. Vista was a great OS, but, it was released too early to meet a deadline (Hmmmm), so it was VERY buggy and drivers were not 100% ready so that caused the system not to be stable.

    Time will tell but, with the bugs, I think I will be sticking with 7 a little longer.

    Its clearly not ready for prime time. The only difference between this and Windows 8 is this is an OS aimed at desktop users and as there are more desktop users claiming this is a good upgrade the echo chamber effect makes it appear as if its a step forward but the reality is it isn't.

    Case in point, as "bad" as Windows 8 was, did anyone have to dive into their group policy settings to turn off forced tracking of all your activities on your PC? Or have to adjust your update settings so you aren't acting as a distribution server to the internet? How about editing your hosts file so the much hyped not-internet-explorer-best-browser-ever can work correctly? Applications and even start menu hanging frequently? Funny how people are making excuses and finding workarounds for things that actually worked in Windows 8 but because its Microsoft they get a pass while Windows 8 is constantly called a "disaster".

    I understand the embracement to those who updated from Win7.

    I dont see a point of upgrading from W8.1 either. Its not faster, MS modern apps (or whatever they call it now) are not improved, you still cant select multiple tiles at once, etc. On the other hand yes its more streamlined across the board, yes they reskinned it nicely especially the desktop part but other then that. I dunno it feels just like a Win8.1 reskin to me but more important thing is its built upon 8.1 foundations which tells you how 8.1 great is beneath the hood.

    5, 6, and 12 beefs, this is exactly how I felt using Windows 10 on my tablet. While trying to get my start screen how I had it on 8.1, I plugged in my wireless mouse because it was so annoying to do on touch!

    I am so confused by all the calls for a desktop tile. There's no difference between a Store app and anything else in terms of how they behave for windowing, which is entirely the point of the set up; 'desktop' is just a mode toggle. Toggling between them can be automatic for convertibles and hybrids, and it's a system function; the quick action menu is where it belongs.

    It is early days yet, windows 8 also sucked, and was improved in windows 8.1. Yet windows 8.1 was a bit crappy also. If you'd have been using windows 10 insider you would have been aware that windows was far from cohesive. Maybe windows 10.1 will address many issues.
    I think W10 generally better, except for the onedrive issue, and for that alone, i am flipping between 8.1 and 10 throughout the day. I've got too used to music and other apps being separate windows to go back to window 8.1 again.
    Nothing is perfect, not apple, not ms, and if you haven't been living under a rock, then none of this would be new and unexpected. Windows has been sucky since i started using it in the 90's, but i seem to prefer it over osx, oscillating between the systems from time to time.

    While much of what you seem to be experiencing seems to be device specific, the power issue is laughable. Many people couldn't even find the power button in 8.1 - hidden under something called the "charms" bar?? If you were on a desktop (really even a tablet), you might not even be able to find it and if you did, you would be like - what was that?? where did that come from??
    .............
    Now it's on the start menu... real tough to find... (As far as lock, why would you be locking on a tablet instead of sleeping?)

    I find the login process is much slower than Win8.1. Some how, the UX is weird. Although the Start is back, but the menu is feeling so narrow and compressed. Going into All Apps and using the jump list is weird. Everything is just seems so out of place. Perhaps it takes time for me to get used to it

    Was excited while waiting for it, but I feeling meh now after using it.

    Wierd? Lol! I find going through long list of apps or grid of apps (incase android and iOS) wiered. Jump list makes the things so lot faster.

    Want more faster? Pin apps on start screen/menu like you do in taskbar in win7.
