What’s New in Windows 10’s October 2020 Update (20H2). https://www.howtogeek.com/684812/whats-new-in-windows-10s-20...
Well I think I can do without the Control Panel since all that is still accessible through SETTINGS.
Just click the WINDOWS key and X at the same time.
But that EDGE is going to be included is not my cup of tea.
My preference is Mozilla Firefox. I have a little program which de-activates EDGE as well as certain "uninstall programs will delete EDGE too.
This update will probably screw with it again.
Wit the the Classic Shell start menu button, I still have the control panel setting. http://www.classicshell.net/downloads/
This one turned up when I did a manual look for updates, showing as available for download and install if I clicked.
On two machines so far, this was substantially the fastest Windows Update to install that I remember.
I have used Chrome for years. Switched over all my tablets, phone and computer to the Edge browser and so far I got no complaints.
Thanks for the info
Updated and one of the fastest ever. Like others, I have Classic Shell and no noticeable change from before update.
Still running 1909 and will be for awhile longer.
Thanks for the information.
No major changes here either. Everything running smoothly as usual.
Since some of you have mentioned Classic Shell, I just wanted you to know that project was abandoned months ago.
Open Shell is the continuation of CS and it is also freeware. Latest version can be found on MajorGeeks.com or Techspot.com:
updated the laptop and PC no problems.
Some settings in 20H2 that you might want to change...see https://lifehacker.com/adjust-these-settings-on-the-new-wind...
The laptop completed with no problems.
The desktop upgraded but was left with one quirky problem which I was able to resolve:
Thanks for this heads up. I did not realize Classic Shell had been abandoned for Open Shell.
I downloaded the latest version of Open Shell as you suggested and ran the installer which replaces Classic Shell with the latest version of Open Shell. Everything seemed to run as before; I had no issues.
BTW the updating news tiles and ads on the default Windows 10 desktop burn up some significant CPU and memory resources, so if you have programs that are running slow, consider disabling that "feature" or using Open Shell, which kills them. To me they're more trouble than they're worth.
Open Shell is free, open source software, and highly recommended for anyone who has Windows 10 but prefers and misses the old, less animated desktop interface of Windows 7.
