The creators update looks pretty good, everyone I've read loves it, but there's a rollout and a wait, no worries, you can jump the line

That's a Microsoft link to their download tool, not a third party. Follow the very few prompts. you'll be downloading in a couple of seconds

Make sure you have all your passwords saved, the update will log you out of most sites

If you go through the prompts, don't start something important, the update doesn't really give you a postpone option once it begins, It looks like they have an easy uninstall if not happy

Some things I'm looking forward to;

Gaming mode is worth the upgrade all by itself, it distributes system resources to favor the game over background, sweet

Privacy dashboard. Ms got some serious heat for taking away privacy settings, the dashboard gives them back, and then some

Tab tools This is nice, I expect other browsers to follow, tabs in edge will get previews, and you can set your tabs aside for later

Night light is something I'm going to like, I leave my computer on, this eliminates blue light which they say interferes with sleep

3d paint looks interesting, I doubt it's as sophisticated as a 3d app but I think I'll have fun

More control over windows update, now you have more options, you can put off an update, schedule or whatever, I don't think you can turn them off entirely though.

I have been using f.lux for just over a year, I am glad to see a native "night light" setting.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
