    I did. It says I need to update windows, and there is still nowhere in Edge (that I can find) where I can select "extensions".

    Edit: I checked the "about" - although I have a great deal of the new features, it said I'm still on 10.586, so I'm trying to update directly from MS's Iso site.

    What a weird update this is.

    Downloaded the Update and during installation it gets to 23% and hangs. If I reboot the machine it repairs it and takes it to the last build prior to the update.

    Tried it three times now and it always hangs at 23%.

    Update on my problem: It works now. The update from microsofts media creation tool website worked (I clicked "update this pc").

    I now have the extensions ABP, bing translator, Onenote web clipper, and Office Online.

    Now, I "merely" need to transfer all my bookmarks and logins to what will be my new browser.

    Mine sat an awful long time at around 23% (perhaps even exactly that). I don't know how long you waited, but I had enough time to drink a huge cup of coffee.

    Ah, okay. Yeah, that would certainly denote "being stuck", lol.

    So, what's the verdict, force an update? or, wait for it to show up in Setting> "Check for Update?"

    I had no real problems with my SP3, But, I NEED my Desktop....please advise. Thanks!

    I don't know exactly, but perhaps try what I tried: Go here:

    Windows 10

    And click "update now" (rather than download etc.). It fixed weird problems on my end.

    Just NOW got done....AWESOME!!!!! had a little snag with the install portion; had to hit RETRY about 7 times before it would finally proceed.

    When I updated my SP3, and checked for Settings > Update; there was a 8/1 FW Update listed; but I am not seeing it for the PC, is this correct?

    Update
    ...So Sweet!

    I've gotten that a couple of times and it was a loose hard drive cable. Wiggle the connection a bit and see if that helps. Good luck!

    So, two questions:

    1. Is there a 8/1, Firmware update, for the (Desktop) PC?

    2. How do you get the new Skype layout to be the Default?

    I think the firmware updates depends on the system itself. I'm on a Thinkpad W530 and a Thinkpad S1 Yoga. But in general, the updates are cumulative, so perhaps it's merely rolled into the same update on the SP3?

    I think this is down to the change of heart by MS regarding the "New" Skype related apps (Yes another 180 degree turn by MS and Skype), the latest idea is that Skype will at some time takeover messaging via your phone.

    This means that the current messaging app is dead as it can't send via your phone and it can't send via Skype because the new Skype universal app is much better (Still not sure about that).

    The other thing it means is Skype have wasted so many peoples time with 180 degree turnarounds and thousands upon thousands of users have left for other messaging apps.

    I really want to be able to send SMS messages via my PC and would love to be able to make and receive calls as well, these things are promised.................

    But it's a hard road keeping up with Skype (MS) on this issue.

    Surface Pro 4 is stuck on spinning gear with a blank black background for last 45 minutes, any advice?
    I'm also having this issue. The spinning gear keeps going, I have to restart it twice, then reverts back to the previous build. Anyone diagnosed it?

    I got the same thing. I was working on another computer so I don't know how far it got, but it stuck on the black screen with spinning circle for over an hour. I hard reset twice and reverted back to my old install. I have a 3 year old laptop with plenty of space, memory, etc. and no driver or compatibility issues. I used the upgrade app to download the update.
    After several tries, I was finally able to get home laptop updated. I never did get the update through Windows Update, and I ended up trying the app again. I ran the app and noticed it got to 75% and then rebooted. It never fully booted from the reboot and I got the black screen with spinning dots. I researched what others were saying, and I did all the following and finally got it to work - I have no idea which of these steps corrected the problem however since I did them all at once.

    • Ran the Troubleshooter to verify there were no issues with the Update
    • Deleted everything in the C: Windows/Software Distribution/Downloads folder
    • Renamed my computer so it had only letters and numbers, no hyphens in the name
    • Used Disk Cleanup to remove all old and temporary files
    • Removed all USB devices including my mouse


    Good luck if you give it another try.
