    I'm on the Windows Insider Programme for my laptop and old Desktop, so got these features some time ago, and I must say that the Bluetooth pairing is now certainly far better than it was.

    "and maybe even be a source of fun"

    Fun? Maybe. Revenue? Definitely.

    Can't wait for all the calls when the new update breaks countless machines.

    @Gentle Viking: At least explain why it might be moving in the wrong direction.

    @Ahkey: For business, not an issue. There's backup and WSUS for delaying and testing. For home users, a backup would be a VERY sensible thing to do. Always.

    There are hundreds upon hundreds of hardware configs out there... Difficult to get everything right.

    Unless Microsoft has backpedaled on it since, it is no longer possible to disable web search in the Windows search bar, either by group policy or by registry editing. Well, not unless you have access to either an Enterprise or an Education version, and yes, that includes Windows 10 Pro. AFAIK the only way to do so now is to block Windows Search in the firewall.

    I'm not getting the update so must have something causing an 'on hold'. Can't see anything relevant in the known issues list, I do have multiple bluetooth devices but the controller is Intel, not Realtek. Hmm.

    Best time to release an update that's guaranteed to break things - when access to tech support is a bit restricted.

    After having sorted out issues with Virtualbox I did a quick experiment with this and it seems while Pro seems to ignore the gpedit.msc local policy settings on web searches the following registry policy setting seems to disable them, I'm not sure what other consequences there are as going on gpsearch.azurewebsites.net the "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer" "DisableSearchBoxSuggestions" isn't related to web searches.

    E: Even more strange is if that policy is set in the registry it doesn't disable or show as managed in the settings app, search permissions, history toggle switch, like you'd expect. It's almost like they only partly renamed and/or moved the underlying code or haven't linked it to the correct policy setting.

    Oh well, my 6 month (minimum) counter starts now. Whilst I can see why some here would test the new release on virtual machines I don't see why anyone would want to risk their home computers until they are forced to!

    Apart from shiny object syndrome of course in which case "to each his own"
    "In a perfect world... spammers would get caught, go to jail, and share a cell with many men who have enlarged their penises, taken Viagra and are looking for a new relationship."

    Depends really - if it was mostly bug fixes and security patches would you still rather wait 6 months?

    Like you say each to their own so don't take this as me trying to tell you otherwise, but it's either get used to and sort out all the silliness now or in six months time.

    I've been teaching myself a bit of powershell scripting to remove all the bloat they include, disable scheduler tasks and services, import local group policies, and make changes to the registry so, hopefully, when upgrades get pushed out i just need to *workout what they've changed and rerun the scripts.

    *Their documentation on some settings are terrible or simply non-existent.

    Personally, no. But nor would I jump straight in.

    Give it a while, let the keener (or stupider) types discover the almost inevitable boo-boos and MS sort them, and only then consider cautiously dipping a tentative toe in. That's the theory, anyway.
    A lesson learned from PeterB about dignity in adversity, so Peter, In Memorium, "Onwards and Upwards".
