    Sorry Microsoft, I have no use for Live Tiles [​IMG]

    Microsoft introduced Live Tiles to Windows Phone and brought the feature over to the desktop when it launched the Windows 8 operating systems.

    Live Tiles have not changed much in Windows 10, but a couple of new options like new tile sizes were added nevertheless.


    Windows phone is Dead and buried, but the very disgusting Phone OS still is here:no:

    They don't even have good first party apps. Live Tiles is deprecated since v1809 came out. Nothing much works in UWP ecosystem.

    ArcaBit, Avast and AVG were previously known. Now McAfee has also joined the list, which get problems with the April update from Windows MESS. So the computer starts slower and also reacts slower. Indicated is the McAfee Endpoint Security...

    I'm a bit late with this post, and Ultra has posted a similar news item (different source - http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/windows-10-1903.827243/page-8#post-10901183), but for those of you that haven't yet seen it...

    "Microsoft blocks Windows 10 May 2019 Update on PCs that use USB storage or SD cards"

    - Users must remove any USB storage device and SD card and restart May 2019 Update installation.

    - the impending May 2019 Update may not install on their systems if they use external USB storage devices or SD cards.

    - "Inappropriate drive reassignment can occur on eligible computers that have an external USB device or SD memory card attached during the installation of the May 2019 update," the company said. "For this reason, these computers are currently blocked from receiving the May 2019 Update."

    Home edition users will rejoice! Have a cheap USB drive connected always and update won't happen.

    "Windows 10 PC with under 32GB storage? No 1903 update for you, says Microsoft"

    - Microsoft finally raises its minimum storage requirements to 32GB for the Windows 10 May 2109 Update.

    - The minimum is up from the entirely unrealistic previous minimum storage capacities of 16GB for 32-bit Windows 10 and 20GB for 64-bit.

    - It's not known why Microsoft has now raised its minimum storage requirements, but coming with Windows 10 1903 is Microsoft's 'reserved storage', which Microsoft expects will keep about 7GB of disk space so that updates can be installed smoothly.

    https://www.zdnet.com/article/windo...torage-no-1903-update-for-you-says-microsoft/




    Maybe most people no longer wanting to be affected by unwanted updates can either plug in a USB device or try to adjust partitions so Windows doesn't think it has enough space. ;)

    Windows 10 Pro 1903 still comes with crapware by default Ghacks.net | April 30, 2019
    When you install Windows 10 from scratch, some Universal Platform applications do get installed by default or at least linked in the Start Menu. That's true for Windows 10 Home, Pro and even Enterprise....
    There is more ways to stop the cancer from coming into your computer:D

    Windows 10 1903 Current list of feature update upgrade blocks
    [​IMG] good Morning April 30, 2019
    Many of you are already on the way with the Windows 10 1903 and were able to update their Windows 10 without any problems to the May 2019 update. But there will also be upgrade blocks that will prevent an automatic feature update. Microsoft…

    If the list is updated because a problem has been fixed or a new one added, we will update the post.
