    Would also be beyond good to have this resolved:
    Creators update / Office Autodiscovery Bug
    https://newsignature.com/articles/bu...rosoft-office/

    It causes crashes and freezes in Outlook following the first Creators update and has gone unresolved since, and we haven't been able to use a crucial function for our business on updated machines since then.

    Yes, really - File Explorer does not delegate the search to the online OneDrive search engine, it uses only the local Windows Search engine and indices on the PC.
    Does not seem like a major issue to me. Files I did not download still show up in search when I search for the filename, which is what I usually do ^^

    Yes, filenames show up because that's what the placeholder files use. However, no other metadata is used. I use descriptive tags in my photos - with the original Placeholder system, I could search my photos using File Explorer. With this system, I can't. It's a major issue to me.

    It's officially official: Microsoft today announced its target release date for the Fall Creators Update.

    Come October 17, some of us will get the first official release of the latest major Windows 10 update. From what we know so far, it's not the most exciting update Microsoft has ever released, but it does pack a number of key enhancements and feature additions. Are you excited about the release? It's still more than a month away, but what are you most looking forward to?
    I am excited. Fall creators update feels like many features and the OS is more fit and finished and perhaps finally worth leaving the insiders for and get on with my life.

    However, the moment I'm really waiting for is amore fit and finished tablet experience. Incremental improvements have been steadily continuing. The most exciting of which is the cshell potential. Despite a large library of insiders feedback on this matter, things seem to have slowed down in favor of more desktop oriented backlog lists and introducing a few more new features, further increasing the backlog.
    I think the tablet experience is just as important as the desktop experience. But there are are many unfinished existing problems in the tablet experience that have not been adressed since Windows 10s start. If those have been addressed I would be a happy user.

    For the average usecase I and many of my network still run into many basic problems such as updatability on older purchased hardware and driver issues. I'm hoping fall update will finally solve them. It's putting many people off to upgrade because the hastle is too much and staying on an older build or reverting to Windows 7 seems better, because things just work, despite the drawback of an "older" OS and missing outbon new and improved features. They are continuing with the "old" and saving up for new hardware a few years down the line. Wouldn't be surprised about flattening hardware sales. Most new devices are all lovely and fine but its the software fit and finish and updatability that's the problem.

    I think it was a mistake for MS to name this year's updates Creator Updates. There is not enough there to warrant it. They should just have generic names for the updates like Spring and Autumn. They should only deviate when there is a monumental change that they deliver on. This Fall Update has nothing that is geared for Creators.

    I'm hoping the features from the Spring creator's update actually start working. Like "pick up where you left off" That would be nice.

    This is the second major update to Windows 10 in a row that isn't worth getting excited about.

    I can't think of a single new feature that I would call 'exciting'. There are a few interesting things which should have been there on day 1, but that's as far as my positivity goes. Microsoft really needs to step up the progress instead of taking years to achieve and deliver very little.

    I am most excited about the Fluent design system, but more about the Linux distros hitting the store. My development work requires Linux as it is easier, and I think that the subsystem will improve my workflow and allow me to be more efficient.

    The emoji picker. The new touch keyboard is cool too. I'm very disappointed in this update and I think its one of the worst updates and there are plenty of changes and additions I don't like such as the phone category which is freaking useless and could be better placed in the devices or Cortana category. OneDrive file on demand is cool I suppose but I don't use OneDrive. The Edge improvements are nice but I don't use it much honestly as it is slow, unreliable, lacks many basic features, has many bugs, lacks extensions doesn't have themes (other than dark and light), doesn't handle the things it should do very well and lacks customisation. There are so many things they could be working on but aren't. W10 on a tablet really has to improve. The UI needs to be more consistent and is actually now more inconsistent with the addition of translucency+blur and the "reveal" effect. UWP apps are unstable and slower than win32 apps (in my experience I should add). I could go on and on about what could be improved.

    It slightly reminds me of Android O but Android is very mature and is excellent. The restrictions for overlays in Android O are bad and the persistent notification for background apps is annoying. Being unable to control the priority of notifications of an app that doesn't have notification channels is unwelcome. Moving the theme engine from RRO to OMS is very nice. Like I said Android is already polished and those problems aren't on the scale of the problems Windows 10 has.

    Since I'm a mobile user, my answer is a big, fat nothing. Absolutely nothing that FCU has to offer is exciting. The biggest "improvement" we got was a name change Phone Update --> Windows Update, and the copyright date from 2016 to 2017.

    That's it.

    Then it should have been called the Fall Creators' Update...
    "Creators' Update" would be pronounced differently out loud. It is still grammatically correct to call it the "Creators Update." It is the update of the Creators. It does not belong to them, there is no possessiveness, hence there is no apostrophe.

    Also, I agree the update isn't exciting, but it is still necessary. The small background improvements are what really matter and make an operating system mature and polished. Look at Android Oreo, for example. Google added a couple features, but made a boatload of background improvements that will improve performance, battery, and security. Those are the most important things, aren't they?

    I hate to say it, but nothing. There really isn't anything about this release or its predecessor that I really care about. I would like to see some basic functionality fixed.

    Little things like being able to see the photos I take with my W10M phone be available for viewing on my PC. They are completely inaccessible via OneDrive, Photos (or whatever Diversionary Marketing Name Remix they are calling it today), or any other means except on my phone. What gives, Microsoft?

    Little things, like being able to add a contact and immediately be able to use said contact to send an email. Is it really that hard to sync a new contact, even to the same device?

    Who knows, maybe OneDrive placeholders (or whatever they are called today) will change my mood for the better. Hard to say. What isn't hard to say, though, is that stuff across the board just plain worked a hell of a lot better 5+ years ago.

    • The feature I use the most, and thusly will look forward to the most is certain OneDrive Files On-Demand. However, it is interestingly enough, also the feature that is just there, doing what I need it to do, without making me aware of itself

    • Being able to just copy a link in the new share UI is certainly my most actively used feature.

    • The new touch XAML based input keyboard WITH SHAPE WRITING! is by far my second favourite feature <3

    • Then there is scrolling with the pen, which is a really nice to have for us with pens, as it simply just feels more natural in your touch/pen flow.

    • All the improvements to PDFs and eBooks in Edge - Very impressive thing :)

    • Real full screen in Edge was also a nice edition. Finally allowing for an immersive experience even when not watching a video =)

    • 4K screenshots in game mode was another nice addition.

    • One thing missing in the Danish edition is the shortcut to pop-up the emoji window. Microsoft never got around making that more than US-only for now. I think I use that really often, though for now, I have to continue to have the touch keyboard in my taskbar, whenever I want to use an emoji in my texts.

    • All the high DPI issues they fixed, which my Surface and lower resolution monitor certainly suffers from.


    Cortana reminders through vision intelligence always seemed like a very impressive feature to me. A shame few others thought so, forcing Microsoft to remove it again.

    So why can't they just put the original Windows 8 OneDrive where everything was working perfectly... they have the code, why?????
