I just recently received the Windows 10 version 1803 update. For those who have not or reviewed the changes. Information can be found here at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/planning...
Thank you for the information
My computer is a Lenova Ideapad 110 with Win 10 installed and I use the default free e-mail that comes with this configuration. It's called "Mail" of all things. Anyway, this past week MS dropped 1803 down to Win 10 without asking, of course, and now Mail doesn't work.
My two e-mail accounts are no longer there. I took my computer to Best Buy and two Geek Squad guys spent six hours on it but were unsuccessful in getting it to work. They suggested I call the remote Geek Squad to see if they can resolve the issue. 1803, I hate you.
I received the 1803 update on May 16th, and Windows started freezing again. The previous update had resolved this problem. It's likely some program (or app as Microsoft now calls them...) that the update doesn't like.
Looking at history of updates for Windows 10 it's better to hold back with updates until they show most problems they bring. It never was that bad, even with experiments like Windows 95 and ME. Now it looks like they don't even bother to test those updates.
So word of advice: before every bigger Windows update make full backup of all important data. Do it periodically as well. There is a good chance that your system may not get through update alive.
Updated this week (desktop and laptop) and todate everything went well … other than renewing a few privacy settings.
Based on the lack of participation in this thread, everything seems to have gone well for others as well.
Thanks for the link
Send Microshaft $10 a month and it may start working...just kidding. I ran Windows 10 maybe 2 years and went back to 7 on my old Dell Studio PC. Too much spying for me , even if you turn off as many options as they let you it says Microsoft may turn them back on
Updated with no problems.
I did not ask for the update it just started on it's own.
Sooner or later I expect driver problems lots of old stuff on my HP.
I really appreciate the info.
make a backup of the system running now and then upgrade if it screws you up and things don't seem to work good enough for you reinstall the old system , I did it several times until they seemed to get it half right ! the only thing that crashes any more is some of my older games other then that all is well, I have it set up now with startisback and I have it boot straight to the desk top I also have it set up where I don't have to sign it at each startup it looks and feels like windows 7 I didn't like windows 10 blocky square click on's and looks !
I have yet to have an update to Windows 10 that didn't go well.
Most of the devices in my house are approaching 7 and 8 years old and yet none of them have had a problem upgrading to Windows 10, or upgrading to a newer version of Windows 10. In all cases except one, Windows 10 ran well. The one that didn't run well is a netbook using an Atom processor, and it improved dramatically simply by shutting off mouse trails, which I prefer.
No issue but here MS doc on it as well
Updated didn't seem to change anything for now.
I have two Windows 10 machines, a laptop with the "pro" edition and a desktop with the "home" edition.
Home gives you the updates without a choice, pro lets you prolong it a little.
On my desktop I have had one program stop working so far. A program I have a lifetime license for that was last updated in 2015, it helped me program my scanner. I had to find and purchase a similar program, which I did. so 1803 cost me $35 so far.
What happened to "good old days" when Microsoft had tool to check which of your software is not compatible with update? I believe it was included with Windows 7 or maybe even Vista. You could run it and it showed possible compatibility problems. Than you can decide if you want to update.
Now looks like MS decided that users are not smart enough to decide for themselves so there is no need to tell them. After all you can always buy new version or other program if something gets killed after update.
That's why I hate those subscription based programs. Not only they cost more in long run, but once you start paying for them all your files are useless or have to be converted to different format. That means they may lose some or all functionality. And you don't have older version of this software to open them, like with boxed programs.
Thanks for the info....
Call Microsoft... they are the best... no charge also..

Did you try 'Compatibility Mode"?
