    It's been 3 years and they still havent sorted out the Settings page. Why not devote a whole release to that, make it easier to use, decide on all the options they want to remove from Control Panel to make Pro users lives a misery and finally decide on a layout & stick to it.

    I must admit I'd kind of laugh out VERY loud if one of these updates wouldn't be free. Considering you're forced to install them.

    Do we need a name confirmation to know that the windows 10 update released on October 2018 will be "Windows 10 October 2018 Update"?

    Amen to that. Not necessarily against moving from Control Panel to Settings but the constant movement of settings and never knowing where I'll find what is so frustrating. By now I should have been able to remember the location of everything I change regularly like on the control panel.

    Ahh... but it will obviously be build 1809, just to throw you off.

    I just use the search function to find stuff now. I've not been let down by it. Trying to find things manually is just a frustrating waste of time due to the constant and pointless tweaks. There are some things which you should just set up and leave be.

    Me too (on the odd occasion I'm forced to sort something out for someone). Intuitive it isn't.

    Agreed. This update has (AGAIN) disabled my graphics drivers, restored all restore points to off (so I couldn't easily restore to the older update if I wanted to....) and set Task View to On by default. Leave the settings alone, wherever they now are, thank you!

    Curious. The update isn't out yet - what are you referring to? I've not seen graphics drivers disabled (but of course out of date drivers might be prone to being replaced) and system restore has nothing to do with reverting to the previous version of Windows.

    "Cloud Clipboard" - cringe! Is it just me or does anybody else think it would be a security nightmare to have your clipboard contents uploaded to Microsoft!
