    Now that's the current trend small portable powerhouse is what majority of them prefer. So, huge market for non enthusiasts vs enthusiasts. So more thin design BGA is yet to appear.

    Question about Windows 10, I see some people when they right click the start button seem to have "Settings" removed from the list of options under task manager and have that replaced with control panel. Is this something the user can change and if so how, and is it possible to have both the Win 10 settings option available as well as the classic desktop control panel? Now that I have a bloatware free build working properly I will need to get it set up correctly but until I do it's a pain to find the control panel without the ability to search and I would love to have it as an option when I right click on the start button.

    Also, if I ever want to reinstall Win10 on my machine, if I run the built in system restore in 10 from a bloatware free version, will it reinstall the exact same bloatware free build I initially installed or will it put a vanilla copy of 10 on the machine?

    Yes this was exactly what I was looking for, did not know if I needed an app to do it or if I could do it myself fairly simply. Was able to add control panel into the menu above task manager and everything is good now, thank you. Will have to save and remember this tool for the future.

    edit- Wow, I did not know that this version of 10 added the feature that if you reboot it will auto open everything you had open/running at the time of rebooting. I don't know how often I will take advantage of that as I typically close everything down before I need to reboot but I had a few windows open and was reading back a few pages and saw it and said "eh what the hell let me restart" and it came right back up with chrome and everything else open again automatically. Pretty cool/potentially useful feature to have even if I prefer to securely close everything down before I reboot, but there's definitely times I don't always get to.
