Thanks for that, Julian. Guess, I will not be going anywhere near the Anniversary Update, specially after being alerted to that sneaky ' News PC Will Include More Adverts in the Start Menu'. I knew that they were not giving away Windows 10 for free without some payback. Now we know what it is.

You do realise you can turn that stuff off don't you ?

My start menu has no adverts, just much more functionality than I had in Win7

Hi Rick, as Glynn said you can turn it off. I have all the bloatware turned off at the moment, including windows defender. Most geek sites tell you how to do it. I have had a good run with W10, and personally would not go back to 7.

I don't have to worry about Cortana, as M$ made it not available for window users who''s home address is close to the south pole lol

Yes, Julian, and Glynn, I do know about this, as it is at the moment, but I am referring to how it will look AFTER the Anniversary Update which has yet to take place.

 

You're lucky, Julian, re:Cortana.

I look forward to this major update for Windows 10 since I've had a flawless run with the OS so far. The most awaited feature, personally, is dark mode which will really help my tired eyes. I only wish they bring the same to Skype for Windows as the Mac variant allows skinning which makes its use very user friendly.

Those that have under Settings/Windows Update/Advanced Features;

 

the box titled; Defer Upgrades, might want to check that off, and reboot their system, so M.S. will work out all the snafu's that a lot of W10 users have 'inherited' with the Anniversary Update being applied to their system recently after Aug 2nd,2016

 

Just a head's up.

 

If you have W10 Professional, Enterprise, or Educational versions ...you have this premium feature. W10 Home Edition does not.

I did my Anniversary update a few days ago. No snafu's or issues at all. Everything, including all my sims as well,  runs perfectly. I have W10 Home. It's actually quite nice. I like the Edge browser.

I use Classicshell for my Start Button - Makes everything look normal (super fast too) and it is free software.  I have rarely used windows 10 start button.

 

But I won't update to this build for few months as I defered the update.  I will let the flight sim software catch up to the new build bugs and features.

No apparent problems here after the Anniversary Update. However, as a few sites have mentioned, I had to turn on System Restore for all of my drives which was turned off by default in the update. I was also using Classic Shell but after the update, a message came up saying that it wasn't compatible with the new version.

For someone who "knows this" you clearly seem not to know that it has nothing to with them "giving away windows for free", as ALL windows 10'will have this, even now that it is no longer free and it has to be purchased by all that want it... Or also the fact that he's not "lucky", as besides being useful, you can completely turn it off (of course for that you'd have to google/read how to do it instead of just complaining...)

Using Classic Shell (v4.3.0) here without any problems on Windows 10 Pro (14393.10). Maybe you were trying to run an older version of Classic Shell?

I had downloaded Classic Shell last month (v4.2.5) but, thanks to your post, I now see that it's been updated to v4.3.0 which is compatible with the Anniversary Update - thanks for that. Having used the default Start menu for a week, I may give it a bit more of a chance before changing back to Classic Shell.

You're most welcome. This is my first time using Classic Shell but I did enable an option in its settings that gives me access to both the classic shell as well as the metro variant. A left click on the Start menu opens classic shell while a middle mouse button opens the W10 native metro style menu. Maybe this option existed in previous versions but if not, you could definitely try it and make use of both variants on demand. Great utility!

Belt up! As per your previous posts, you seem to have nothing better to do than stir things up. I was replying to Glynn and Julian, so do not need your oar in!!
