What I am not looking forward to is this MS marketing move in Windows 10, starting a new browser war over again: http://www.pcworld.com/article/2861032/microsoft-kills-eu-browser-choice-screen.html
They broke the browser choice api, so you cannot change to another browser than edge with one click.
Too complicated for the average user that won't go outside the default settings, so a worse position for alternative browsers like firefox, chrome, opera from set-up time etc. etc.
They almost certainly will get issues in Europe over this new browser war, but they hope to have "edged" the competiotion by the time they are forced again to comply to free browser choice.
Understand that Google Chrome holds a similar position on their Android OS and no one protests, they even killed good decent adblocking apps there, because of their revenue schemes.
Will there be no free browser choice in the future? It should have been real easy to give users a dual-boot OS, but licence deals blocked that possibility for the consumer.

I have my new computer set up but their is no little windows icon in the system tray.  I installed 110 windows updates, thought that might show the icon but it didn't.  I wasn't planning on upgrading to win 10 anytime soon but I don't know how to reserve my copy.

Could someone please tell me how I can reserve the windows 10 upgrade.  I installed 120 windows updates but that didn't make the little windows icon show up in my taskbar.

Thank you.

It'll show up in due time, just have patience.

I removed it from one of my systems and it took 3 days before it appeared again.

For those that find it hard to use the Windows 7/8 built in image function...in the case of wanting to revert after the Win10 upgrade you can use the EaseUS System GoBack Free http://www.easeus.com/system-go-back/

I'm curious, how would this work/effect the OS if a person has Macrium Reflect.
Is this the same type of Imaging software?

It's exactly what the title states "system go back" user guide here http://www.easeus.com/tutorial/system-go-back.html

If you wanted to replicate Macrium you'd use the EaseUS Todo Backup Free...then you wouldn't need system go back ;)

I'm using the free AOMEI Backupper and it works great. I like it better than the EaseUs one.

I just can't see adding something else to the system if there is already something
built into the system that does an excellent job. :)
