Hey Alexander,

Thanx much for the post.  Glad to hear things are working pretty well for you.  As I am not sure of your operating environment I can only make comments on how I run my OS's.  Was never an IE user, there have always been better browsers available.  I am very interested in Edge to see if it actually does compare with the current high end ones available.  It looks promising although I do agree there are a lot of fixes and improvements have to be made.

Have noticed small bugs in different apps, but I feel they are not showstoppers and will be fixed shortly (eg: I can't leave a comment in Facebook).  All of the hot links in Win 10 that I am interested in work well.  I still run all of the security control and maintenance programs I used to and they all work well.  Win 10 definitely runs many of my higher end apps faster.  I would recommend the Win 10 OS to anyone!!!

Thanx Bob

Hey all,

Have now had the official version of Windows 10 Pro running on my high end desktop for about a week.  The upgrade from Win 8.1 Pro to Win 10 was flawless.  Everything moved without any issues.  All my "stuff", which I have much all works.

Had a serious issue 2 days in.  The start button which moves you from the standard functions to the complete Win 10 functions suddenly stopped working completely which meant the Win 10 side didn't work at all but all of my other "stuff" worked fine.  Very strange.  Took a few hours and some digging on the internet to resolve the issue and everything is working fine now.  If somebody needs more help with that issue I can.

There are other little things that I am finding don't work or they are not there.  I will let you know more about those as things move on.  There definitely is things that need to be fixed, but because of the way I use my Operating Systems they don't bother me to much.  As my phone is an Android phone and I will not change that I will not see much of how Win 10 works in the mobile environment. I am still waiting for the Upgrade to appear for my laptop which is running Windows 7 Pro.  I will let you know how that goes when it happens.  If you have questions I will try to answer them.

I still believe strongly believe that as well as the fixes that you are now seeing we will probably see a full upgrade to something like Win 10.1 within the next 8 to 12 months.  Thanx all!!!

sound fixed think it was my bad working well now think the keyboard sound was off Loving the new search amazing.windows10

If that doesn't work the only thing I know of left is this:

Start ► Run ► Type cmd ► Enter Type sfc/scannow ►Enter. It will take awhile.  (Can you tell I have a file of fixes for audio all of sudden not working on Windows?)

Comment by laura52 on March 24, 2015 at 5:09pm

So both your drivers are not being recognized?

Try this:

Start ►Run ► services.msc

In "Services" Window, select Windows Audio from the left, then right click on it and choose restart.

Comment by laura52 on March 24, 2015 at 5:02pm

Will the Beta allow you to find it through the Start Search by typing Services.msc Windows Audio?  If so try it through there since it seems they want you to discover the long way around first.

Comment by alexander Mollison on March 24, 2015 at 4:58pm

 will try  but I have no control panel as you have this is testpreview have been trying lots it will not recognize the dives lol or work the old one

Comment by laura52 on March 24, 2015 at 4:52pm

If that doesn't work then go to your Control Panel again and click on Device Manager since I take it you are the Administrator, which you have to be for this to work.  Click on Sound, Video and Game Controller then right click on your Audio Device and choose "disable".  Wait for a minute then click on Enable and it should work.
