Re: Threshold 2 for Windows 10

In reply to a post by MrTAToad2:
Not available here - apparently if you do the last update, then Threshold 2 wont be available for a while - apparently its equivalent to installing a new version of Windows...


Er? Me no understand smile

Installed without any problems. The one oddity is that it changed file association for .pdf from Adobe Reader to Edge, for some reason.

Just noticed also that .jpg had gone to Photo Viewer from IrfanView, although all the other picture filetypes had been left where they were. Odd. Easy enough to change back in Settings/System/Default apps (I'm sure you know this already!)

I installed it over the weekend, I backed up my Windows 8.1 and done a clean install, i can't see it staying on this computer for long to be honest

But ten is worse than Windows 8.1 i did go back to 7 for while.
It is not so much the look of ten, I can get around the awful start menu like I got around the start screen on 8, it is the spying and the way MS thinks they own our computer with the forced updating and wanting to know every thing about you.

I also do not like this service idea.

Just go with the flow and stop being negative - all the "spying" stuff can still be disabled.

Re: Threshold 2 for Windows 10

Had a interesting one this evening. My Win7 machine popped up a window for the WIN 10 upgrade, there were two obvious buttons "Upgrade" and "Later". Not wishing to upgrade I clicked the later button (I think I should have just closed the window). It proceeded to download a copy of Win 10 and then started on the install process. It stopped on an an agreement page, which I declined and it then asked me to confirm as this would prevent the upgrade happening.

Deceitful process I think.

Microsoft prevented Threshold being available for a few days if you had installed any updates the day before to stop their servers being overwhelmed apparently.
