Ramblings of an old Doc
And lacking really good features

I don't know this from personal experience, but Martin Brinkmann tends to know what he's talking about, and he did the update...

You should read the article linked and, if possible, defer this update. He describes a method for W10 Home, as well, using the metered charge option.

After a couple of days with the new update everything is running good. Had a little problem with Windows Media Player not starting, but all is well.

Here's a good one for you... after installing the 1803 update, the new Start 10 release has an issue. If in the Configure area of Start 10 you select "Games" to show in the places panel, it puts the word "Desktop" there instead, and if you click "Desktop", it errors out. It has done this a 3 different PC's here.   

Oh, and the install also creates a folder in C:/Users/"User Name" named "Start10Ctrlpnl" with various useless files, 721 of them, in the folder. I know they are useless because if you delete the folder, Start 10 still functions just fine. A lot of the files all begin with "AAASystemSettings_Accessibility_" or "Classic-" and they are all of a type called "Setting Content" in Windows 10.

Hello, Tom

Actually it's doing the same for me with games/shows desktop/then nothing.

I'll forwarded your report to the Stardock support team for their review and recommendations.

Please keep an eye on this thread for any updates.

We really do appreciate your feedback, thanks.

LOL.  I already had my delay set for 120 days and just got the Fall Creators Update this weekend.

Didn't seem to screw anything up.  So far.  Bit of an "Oh, shit" moment but then I remembered.
