  1. Yes I will. It just occurred to me. Why all the “fixes” and stuff. Windows 10 is fresh in the memory and all the research that went into it both at Microsoft and the army of helpers “out here”. So why weren’t all the errors found before it was put on the market. I am sure I am not the only one to have thought of this and quite frankly, it does nothing at all (repeat the last bit) for the M/soft brand name. Actually it makes it appear silly ….. and at OUR great expense, secondly what the hell do you pay all those programmers (now called coders) for.???????? And don’t send me a pile of useless emails either. Another thing M/soft could do i.e. be bothered to tell people when changes are made that might benefit them. Oh no, only tell us little people when it blasts the trumpet of M/soft. Bad customer relations. I’ll bet Bill never came near the top of the class in that.
