First, there's no frigging ungroup task bar icons, second no task bar right click to get task manager.
Grouped icons is a security risk, I don't want all my activity on display when I hover, this is no acceptable, I've sent this issue in, but they seem determined removing ungroup entirely, they even disabled a registry fix, what's up with them this time around?
Type task manager from windows key, right click the icon, send it to the task bar.
Second work around, send it to the desktop, then right click, properties, create a shortcut so you have keyboard access to it.
Contributor and OSNN moderator points out,, right clicking on the start button also does the trick!
I sure hope MS abandons this minimalist approach, I'm fine with having "grouped icons" default, but not fine having no ungroup option.
I'm also not fine with no drag and drop to task bar, and I can't find "create desktop shortcut" in right click
The actual reason, (in spite of conspiracies speculated on the internet), is technical rather than marketing (or otherwise conspiratorial).
Even though Windows 10 proved remarkably stable, the few crashes were almost always driver related, Microsoft is now attempting an elimination/reduction of those issues too.
Microsoft's "Mode Based Execution Control" (MBEC) is an important performance feature allowing better isolation of kernel memory, it's included in Ryzen 2 and Intel gen 7, (Ryzen 1, Gen 6 don't have it)
Users wondered why some Ryzen CPUs aren't certified for 11 now you know the answer.
After that, some processors adapt strict driver implementation and prove it, some either don’t or haven’t proven it
Even though those CPUs were patched, I don’t think they’ll get certified even if they follow the driver stability principles, but possibly in the future, depending on Intel successfully pitching their case and or adding firmware to the chipset I suppose.
