^ Only for the lower level versions (e.g. 'Home xxxx').

For Pro etc, one can still pick and choose, and control download/installation time/s.

I plan to leave upgrading any of our computers for quite some time ...

It is a solid OS. Will migrate to it as my main OS when I can be bothered backing up mountains of stuff scattered every to do a clean install.
I'll sit on the fence for some months to see what other little gems MS has hidden away from the naive and not so smart PC users.

Yes that has got me a little ****ted off, you can 'deffer' updates with pro for 2-3 months, then it'll force install all of them. Enterprise version can have them turned on or off.

There's also a p2p setting for updates which you imo needs to turn off as it'll upload your os updates to other w10 useres and when it's doing so chews up a lot of bandwidth

Did my free W10 install the other day.
Glad those flamin` tiles have gone. Otherwise seems not much different.
It did automatically delete my CCleaner program though.

Just downloaded it again. Still there.
Unless of course, which is always likely given my degree of computer expertise, I accidentally deleted it myself but I never went into the Control Panel/Programs menu.
Yet again another one of life`s inexplicable mysteries......

I still haven't crossed over to the dark side
on my PC running win7 I partitioned my SSD 30gig for the OS but win7 has a habit of bloating up bigger and bigger and I am constantly having to delete temp files etc. Does anyone know if win10 has this annoying bug

I usually allocate about 75-120 GB for the O/S and program partition.

I also understand that SSDs 'appreciate' not being fully used for partitioned space. e.g. a 240 GB SSD already has 16 GB as unallocated space that the OS doesn't know about. The SSD uses this space for wear levelling and housekeeping (e.g. when using the TRIM command). Leaving a further 16-20 GB unallocated further enhances the lifespan of the device.

Like many, I will not be adopting Win 10 until the middle of next year, at the earliest.

I haven't noticed Win 7 bloating temp files. Mine has been pretty good BUT I do run a clean of all my drives once a month or so ( when I do a force defrag and backup my data drives).
I put win 10 ( free upgrade) onto my little laptop I use for travelling. Except for the scratch pad driver having to be manually loaded it was painless BUT it has very little on it and I use the device only for taking on travels and email and net access. Way better than the disgusting win 8, which was another Vista sent to try everyone's patience. Won't be changing any of the computers I use for real stuuf to win 10. Don't like it THAT much...

Updated to Windows 10 on the weekend, total disaster Windows 10 will only let me logon to my computer on a temporary basis.

This means I can't do a thing and I don't know how to solve it. I have logged on using both my Windows logon and my local user password and neither solves the issue.

The Windows help on their web is totally useless.

I was perfectly happy with Windows 7 and never had an issue. So at the moment I have a laptop that is totally useless, thanks to Microsoft
