    They haven't showed us what it is yet. Looks like they are going to make us wait until the 24th.

    I believe most of the stuff was already presented in the Win 10 Sun Valley preview, but perhaps I misunderstood. I don't think I will be upgrading to Windows 11 though. I don't need the GUI redesign and I wouldn't be surprised if the Windows Store and Windows Update will still suck. Plus who knows what stuff it might break, even a simple update already caused high CPU usage on my Win 10 1909 system, luckily I was able to uninstall. But somehow this uninstall did manage to break the Win Store and the Win Taskbar, what a joke.

    hi
    is there a way to download the iso (windows 10 pro in my case ) via a downloader manager or torrent legal and legally ?
    MediaCreationTool21H1 is slow and can not find a resume ,i would like to download only the iso and create an usb stick to update my laptops
    I have tried even to run MediaCreationTool21H1 sandboxie to be sure to download only the iso , but it doesn't run under sandboxie
    thanks

    I simply used the Windows ISO Downloaded linked above, hit download, then it opened up a browser with that link so I copy/pasted the link. It's an official Microsoft link

    Feel free to check the file hashes and Google it, you will see that it's genuine untouched

    My pleasure. BTW, the link I provided is for the 64-Bit US English ISO. If you need any other language let me know.

    After all that, it turns out I can get News and Interests simply by switching my Taskbar to the bottom of the screen. :eek: It's probably been lurking there the whole time. Geez, so simple. Anyway, I saw it in its glory and now it's banished since the taskbar is at the top again. :)

    Credit for the "fix."

    Interesting. I would have never thought of that as I never move mine from the default location. Unfortunately when I tried to hide News and interests it took out the tray icons and clock with it. I think this still needs a lot of work.

    Thanks imdb, it was one of those niggling little things that went on for way too long. :rolleyes:

    Well, it seems many prefer the Taskbar at the bottom and stick with it, same for me with the top configuration so the choice was really no choice. If I absolutely HAVE to read the News all the time, I can pin it to my Taskbar just fine.

    There was this rumor back when N & I was first coming out and that involved Cortana needing to be enabled in order for that to show up and work properly. I have Cortana disabled and the widget works as intended. Never needed Cortana anyway, right?

    yep. i have cortana not only disabled but also completely removed and n&i works perfectly fine. however, i disabled it right after i got the update. for my money, n&i is just another tool for telemetry and i don't need it.

    It is my understanding that it is a known issue if you set your scaling to something that is not 100%. This and it did not happen immediately.

    I read the same thing about cortana weeks ago but i already had it disabled. I still got the news on my taskbar after the June updates.

    oh, i see. maybe we should ask @Rasheed187 if he could reproduce this issue because he's using custom scaling too (125% if i'm not mistaken).

    Oh yeah, that's right--Rasheed would know about that.

    I looked up Windows 10 (soon to be Windows 11 come October 14th they say) pro, that's ain't cheap any more. 200 USD for a usb at Micro Center. Still ain't cheap for Home either at 140 USD. Pro has the Group Policy, was why this was brought up and I don't use a bootleg enabler any more.

    I disabled Cortana via the registry, as well as at startup. You just never know with these things. :cautious:

    According to Microsoft, you can upgrade to the Windows 11 versions Home , Pro and Mobile for free.
