Available in Europe, see: https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=177124.0
Unfortunately that doesn't do a thing for me. No access to a download and therefore not able to test or try.
Just be patient Bob, I'm sure it's officially announced soon. ;)

I didn't know about it, but shortly after boot I got a notification that avast was out of date - thinking VPS I checked about avast and saw a program update available. This of course was because I had used a prior beta on this system.

Does anyone knows how to correct/tweak/change this major Windows 10 annoyance?
I want quick access to context menu and not having to scroll up and down for the commands  >:(

You already have more in your menu than I do. I would not be in favor of a cluttered menu like you suggest.

Terrible news unless they make the settings app just as versatile and feature rich. I go to control panel many times to access things that the Settings app does not offer. If they don't improve the app , it will spawn a wave of third party programs to bring back the functionality people are used to having.

Yet another paragraph in Microsoft's long suicide note starting with win8.

I couldn't do that but I'm sure others will. The Classic Shell people are an example of who probably would.

Thanks. :)
I've gotten used to using the Windows Key and and the I key and then the search function for anything I need.
It's a matter of learning a different way to get to what you need. There are times the search function is actually much quicker.
