    Reboot and it works ( in most cases)

    Another thing that's missing/removed is the Windows update in the control Panel. Many are complaining the Settings app ends in errors, and update wont work. To get the Old one back you again alter the reg and the old option is then back.

    Open Notepad, paste in the following:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdat e\UX]
    "IsConvergedUpdateStackEnabled"=dword:00000000

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdat e\UX\Settings]
    "UxOption"=dword:00000000


    Save it as WU.reg then merge it, reboot.

    Heres a thought, instead of making stupid unhelpful comments why not actually provide details -- Changing the regional settings, Location and Language to English (United States) to USA didn't work. Thats the first thing I did. As far as the computer is concerned its in the USA. So whats your suggestion ?
    Its really not recommended to bring back WU into the control panel like this with a reghack

    Put the feedback about what is missing into the Windows Feedback tool

    The reg hack was posted on the Insider Program after many people complained about it being missing from the control panel.

    Another problem MANY people are having is you can see other computers on your LAN, but cant access them, the error is " The account is not authorized to login from this station" -- a reg hack was posted again on the Insider program, and it works the majority of the time.

    Microsoft reply
    In the January release of Windows 10 Technical Preview (build 9926) we made a change related to security and remote file access that may affect you.
    Full article on insider http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/i...f-4d50100c1841

    Later in the thread, there was a link to a reply from Microsoft that said it was a security risk doing it, and it was done on purpose , and by the wording Microsoft wanted every one to use Homegroup -- NOT gonna happen cant see millions of businesses world wide having to go through and change mobile devices, workstations to use home group.




    Microsoft Replies to the LAN connection access:

    You may see suggested workarounds where making a registry change restores your ability to connect with guest access. We do NOT recommend making that change as it leaves you vulnerable to the kinds of attacks this change was meant to protect you from.
    If they are all Windows 7 or newer, you might consider using the Homegroup functionality, which will take care of security behind the scenes for you.

    All good and dandy as long as its only basic Computers, BUT what about Servers, Earlier versions of Windows , MAC's, linux -- All have to use standard Networking Via a workgroup. Microsoft even say them selves when asked a question.

    Q: Windows Server doesn't support homegroups like Windows 7 and 8 do so my question is how to "emulate" that?
    A: From the description, all of the computers are not in domain. So we are talking about a workgroup sharing issue. Is this correct?

    If so, then local accounts are used in workgroup sharing. You could create local users on Windows Server with same username and password as users on other client computers. Then create a group for these users and share your folders to the group.


    OH WAIT, the answer is standard Networking, NOT homegroup

    That's the whole idea about pre releases, -------- To point out the items that don't work, or people are having problems with.

    Microsoft can test all they like on site, but cant factor in every type of daily usage. By having people complain / Advise they can hopefully fix any unforeseen problems when ever a change is made or something new added, and general feedback ( good or bad). Other wise its put out a OS, hope like hell it works and then service packs to fix all the faults.

    Yeah but you're kinda pointing them in the wrong direction. As Nathan said, use the feedback tool.

    People do use the feedback tools, as well as forums Microsoft have developed for the purpose.

    There's plenty of other forums world wide that have threads relating to the same subject, not just on the Microsoft sites. Many other forums are far better at providing answers to questions than the MS forums. Sometimes the answers on the MS forums are incorrect, not really an answer or the question is danced around without actually answering it.

    Question -- if threads weren't crated on this and other forums around the world, how many people do you think would actually only visit the Microsoft ones, which in some cases are not exactly in the open ?

    I'll show you what I'm referring to -- Here's the insider home page https://insider.windows.com/ Wheres the forum Link. Its not a closed forum, so anyone can view the questions and answers, you only need to sign in to create or reply.

    So people can find new and unusual ways of breaking things.

    No trees were harmed in the making of this post but a few electrons were terribly inconvenienced.
