Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

I would like to comment on the Fall Creator's Edition Update of Windows 10!  This has to be one of the biggest disasters that Microsoft has ever accomplished.  As one can see from the various problems encountered after the install this update was not well designed, was not thoroughly quality controlled and now has the support staff scrambling to figure out how to answer all of the issues that it caused.  Here is my list of issues after the update:  Mail and Calendar programs missing from Start Menu, Control Panel Apps shows them to be installed but I cannot add to start menu and cannot start either program.  Several other Apps also missing from Start Menu including Amazon, Adobe Reader and most other third party Apps but also several more Microsoft Apps or Windows Programs.  Files missing:  Somehow during the install Microsoft decides to remove the pointers from the Pictures and Documents folders so that it appears all previous files in these locations are lost.  By navigating thru Users...Documents I was able to retrieve all of the files but how many novice or new users are going to know how to do this type of trouble shooting?  This is a bonafide nightmare for Microsoft and takes me one step closer to trading in all of Dell computers for Macs!  It cannot possibly be worse than two days of troubleshooting and researching how to get back to the same functionality I had before installing the latest Windows 10 Update!  My advice to all is not to upgrade, wait until Microsoft has figured out how to successfully install an upgrade and maintain the claim that "all your files will be right where you left them!"  I feel sorry for the Support Staff who have to deal with this disaster!  Please disseminate to all potential users.

RE: Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

I agree.  In my opinion Windows 10 is nothing but an Operating System that is perpetually in Beta status with millions of people acting as testers.  I know understand why Microsoft wants constant information from your computer.  It seems that every time there is a big update in the spring or fall, they have to wreck everything.  Oh well I still enjoy my XPS with 8.1 and my iMac 😜
