Pardon I can see this in any Windows X review but its my biggest bugbear.
Ok - the desktop is back where you can see in the taskbar all the apps you have open BUT do the apps have "X" close button in the top righthand corner???

True, though the entire titlebar in Metro apps under win 8.1 "auto hides" - including the "X"... this is how Windows 10 does it too, when an app is in Fullscreen mode. When in windowed mode, the title bar and action buttons (maximise, close, etc) are always visible.

What he said. Though you can always work with the app window maximised, so it's still in "windowed" mode, but with the window taking up the whole screen just as a desktop application would.

Calm down man :), it will reveal itself when you move the mouse top right. A 32" monitor would give you the same button in the same place but a little big bigger and further away :)

have you run the updates yet?

This one includes a fix for Adobe Premium Content - maybe related?

This must be an in-house bug bear. I've seen a LOT of MS employees correcting people who comment online that it is Windows 10. I can understand why though; it'd be like someone calling your brother Bill instead of William. It's sort of right, but not really if his name is William as Bill has never been his nickname.

Can you do an in-place upgrade of Win7Pro to Win10TP, or do you have to install to an empty drive?
Also, what happens when it gets released properly? Reinstall again from scratch?




Life is too short to remove USB safely.

Yeah, perhaps more to the point is that it's usually people making a poorly disguised reference to Apple's operating system, OS X...

Dunno if someone already posted this in here, but they named it because they wanted it like Xbox One, but Windows one has already been made, so they just added a zero. Otherwise, I think it looks really cool and I love how they are improving the multitasking and command prompt.

Yeah, I doubt that - Terry Myerson used that as a joke in the reveal presentation....I still think this is the most likely reason posited so far:

Although personally, I think if this were the main cause, then Microsoft should just say so.
