Next major update to Win 10


[link to this post]
 
Anyone know when the next major update to Win 10 is due. Sick of edge saying there is a problem with facebook checking for solutions. Firefox aint much better and chrome crashes when you try to enable high contrast dark mode.

I scrapped Edge after trying it for a couple of days. Went back to IE11.

I would do that but no adblock for IE and that is a main attack vector.

Why are you having so many problems? i have been running windows 10 now for nearly 2 weeks, yes it is a record for me, it normally lasts two days.

No problem with browsers, I use cent browse, is this high contrast dark mode a hidden feature?
As for the next major version, I heard it will be in May that it is released.

I expect I will be back with windows 8.1 by then unless i have updated the computer, then I will have to see if windows 8.1 works with the new Ryzen

Dark mode is high contrast theme enabled in themes and also edge has it too with firefox as well but ff does not display pages correctly. Essentially it is black web pages and applications to reduce eyestrain. eg Facebook is white on black instead of black on white which I find considerably easier on the eyes.

Never heard of cent browser but suspect it may not have a dark theme.

Oh right I tried Chrome and enabled the dark them on that and it crashed and every time I started it with dark theme enabled it crashed and some of the buttons didn't look right on chrome with dark theme.

I hate Edge, tried it for a while, but just something about it that I do not like, apart from some of the extensions I use is not available on it.

i think it is because it have the same UI as universal apps and the URL bar is in a stupid place.

Trying Cent but there isnt a dark theme and it doesnt insert apostrophes like Edge but other than that I will probably keep it as a backup browser for facebook when Edge is being a pain haha. There is high contrast mode but it turns this pages background white which is a shame. Will keep playing see if I can customize it to my liking. It is fast though.

Liking Cent, getting used to it and once I discovered some of the chrome themes like the dark theme work with it, it's starting to grow on me. laugh I have also discovered Grammarly which helped me correct this paragraph.

Insert apostrophes?

It is fast, I used to use comodo Dragon, which is again based on Chrome, but I had a few problems and I saw cent mentioned on a forum, so I tried it and liked it.

I am thinking of going back to Windows 8.1 anyway, the only problem is if I update this computer to Ryzen, will it work, because I really do not like Windows 10, too much spying and too much MS control,.

Good luck with the Ryzen and 8.1 it may or may not work. Are you doing a clean install or from an image, what about Windows authentication, does changing a CPU and I presume motherboard invalidate activation?

Just posted a post in hardware issues , MS is blocking updates on the older operating systems if they are running on the new gen of processors.

I have a retail version of 7 pro, and updated that to 8 pro, and in turn to 10, so my version of Windows 10 is retail, so I can activate it on any computer as long as it is deactivated on the other machine.

Not sure what I will do, i do no really want to do a clean install as the amount of plug ins I have for my video editing software is a pain to reinstall,, even if I have changed to using different software most of the time, I still need Vegas installed.
i could just try and boot up with the drive as it is on the new system, or make an image and use that.

I am using 10 at the moment, but to be honest, it annoys me, so I think I will go back to 8.

not sure when i am updating, I am thinking of doing it when my next week off work comes up, which i think is next month.

One thing for sure Cent uses a lot less memory than Edge with 4 tabs open and there is even the option to purge memory at user-set interval.

8.1 seems to be treated as the new vista.

ryzen drivers have been released by AMD for windows 7 and 10 but not 8.1. Noone has even bothered trying the drivers to see if they work on 8.1.

Media outlets with news stories etc. continue to pretend windows 10 is the only version of windows.

I've noticed that on the Asus website the only drivers for my new mobo (Asus Prime X370-Pro) are for Windows 7 & 10.

8.1 does seem to be a strange omission.
