Win 10 seems to work OK on my old conventional HD machine, so far.

I think Pro gives more control and less automated fuck ups than the home version.

I did check and my Dell was supposedly fully compatible and supported with drivers before I started.

Fairly common issue reported by technicians. I've had to work with a number of Windows 10 machines, including newer ones at factory settings, that were going through this. Also became a problem in my desktop for awhile. Sometimes occurs after a Windows 10 update, despite the fact that running update is one of the recommended methods to fix it.

Windows 10 initiated an update 40 minutes before my zoom meeting. It seems to be one of those big ones that break everything since it has been 10 minutes and is only 22% and stuck. "This will take awhile" it says in a totally different screen than usual updates.

Follow up: It reset my file associations. I have to set videos to not use Window 10 video player. I'm not even sure why that exist since we already have Windows Media Player.

It supports emails outside of MS? Honestly never used the Outlook app even at work it was always the website.

You can configure Outlook to fetch emails from anyone source. Setting it up manually is a bit annoying since the auto setup doesn't work well.

Why did they make Paint 3D if Paint already exist?

You need to pay for Outlook/Office, the email app is free

They were going to remove Paint at one point but then changed their mind, Microsoft are good at changing their minds and renaming their products a lot

I guess the update was also something big for edge. It gave it a new icon and everything. Still not using, though. I don't particularly want my browser synced with my Office account and greeting me by name like the HAL 9000 every time I start it up.

Thankfully we can skip the Microsoft account sign-in, not so with Apple.
