Behodar: Has anyone figured out how to "Save target as" in Edge? It doesn't appear in the right-click menu, and holding Shift, Ctrl or Alt doesn't seem to do it.


this will come after July 29, Edge will be regularly updated, its an App not built into the OS

a lot of the ui stuff outstanding is fairly trivial and could easily be waiting on some final decisions and art from user focus.

the settings vs control panel is interesting tho. personally got a bit annoyed years ago with 'administrative tools' and 'control panel' duplication ; ). so it seems maybe adding one to that group now we have three (polite laughter). but strangely this is not bothering me & I really like the new settings design and feel.

Behodar: Did the upgrade go fairly smoothly for the rest of you? Currently on the third attempt and it finally seems to be working (it's rebooted and is currently sitting at the "Upgrading Windows" screen - the previous two attempts started off OK then the updater window just randomly closed and left me at the desktop).

This is the second update that's popped up an Explorer view pointing at D:\ partway through the update for no obvious reason.


No hassles with the upgrade at all, it was quite quick and installed on first attempt


Me too, first time, no hassles.  It seems to be very fast and stable and I'm really looking forward to the end of the month and installing it on all our machines.

Updated on my ASUS tablet, still seeing instances of text in a selected item going completely white - over a white background. Mainly in the Mail app.

Other than this it's pretty fast and the touchscreen works perfectly.

I do have a small problem with these newer tools which I fear will get worse going forward. If you boot into safe mode the start menu and and other metro apps, including the settings one, stop working. So it's back to using the old tools if they still exist.

Hopefully that's all fixable though.

Brumfondl:
freitasm: Still irritated that THERE IS a Control Panel with lots of options still there, and there is Settings with lots of options... Annoying because you have to remember where the option you want is actually located.



There is also the joy of some things being not completely in Settings so you start off in Setting but go to do something and then get sent to a Control Panel e.g. 'Settings > Network & Internet > Ethernet > Change Adapter Options' takes you to the 'Network Connections' Control Panel.


I was really hoping they would have fixed that by now.

I don't think they think it's BROKEN, which is frustrating.

I wish it still didn't take 1000 clicks to change network settings in Windows.  They need to build a proper network settings application just like OSX.

It's a pity you have to use the Network settings so often to try and fix Apples terrible networking.

Edit; it took 3 clicks to get into the advanced setting for network in Win 10

Or when Windows applies one Wifi access point DNS settings to another access point which breaks the connection...

Takes 6 various left and right clicks to access DNS when right clicking on Wifi on taskbar, they should put IP and DNS settings in adapter preferences without needing to access IP4.

Especially because once you've opened IP4 settings you can't move windows underneath it so you need to move properties to the right area of the screen before opening IP4.

It could just be made easier...
