It's a good job King George didn't put a tax on the English language (like he did on tea), or the Americans would probably be speaking Italian or Russian.  :}

I can't be the only one who found Windows 10 performing a massive update this week lasting half-an-hour and more, that has changed the layout of menus, exchanged left clicks for right and introduced new opportunities for the system to freeze?

The only downside that I have noticed so far has been the unwanted reappearance of OneDrive.  I don't know what other unwanted rubbish M$ have decided to re-inflict.

The one drive pop-up is annoying, can it be killed.
It's also moved the toolbar from bottom to side >>:-(

Just in case Windoze is missing a few snippets of your private data  Microsoft has the answer -

A new Microsoft patent reveals company’s bigger plans for data acquisition and improved search results. The tech giant is planning to watch everything you do and sync it between different apps to bring you quicker and better search results.

Simple Answer?, I think so, Linux for the last three years, never looked back.

My PC has just decided to do the major update too. At the moment i haven't spotted any changes but no doubt they will become apparent in due course.

I had killed OneDrive - it reappeared after the update.  The update probably took longer because the Seattle S&1theads thought that it was in some way needed.  If I was smoking the same stuff as them, I might think it was a good idea as well.
The moving of the toolbar is likely something else - it should be possible to click on it and drag it to where it belongs (had it happen by accident a long time ago on an XP box)

Reported in the press,

Some guy was doing a visual presentation with his WIN10 laptop.

When Win10 started to do an update onscreen which took an hour.

All attempts to prevent the update failed. Lecture abandoned.

A not very happy lecturer contacted MS and voiced his displeasure.

Remedy, it is possible to schedule updates at a more convenient time.  %% %%

Good luck

In my case - and others? - there was no warning of an update: it just happened.

To access 'shut down/restart' I now need to right-click on the Windows logo instead of left-click as previous. A very minor irritation but what is the point?

Having heard this morning that many postings on twitter are generated by 'bots', I suspect you're right.

The taskbar can be moved in settings.
Choose Top, bottom, left or right.
It must have been moved during the update.

The button switching is probably one of the left handed programers getting his own back, or due to a concensus in their office that it is a better way of doing it, or a new fad or just like the supermarkets - 'lets move things about so that people don't get into a routine' attitude. will stick with win 7, at least they can't change things without my permission, omnicorp - who do you think omnicorp is based on - MS <*<

In Windows 10 you can select (configure) the Primary Mouse Button to either left of right.  Settings >>Devices >.Mouse and trackpad.

So you can change it back to how it used to be...

Normally a clean install would set "primary mouse button" to "left" - would be interested to know if the has switched after an update

It's only the action of shutting down that now needs a right-click! Everything else retains its pre-update right or left setting. Thus, changing the primary mouse button would only confuse matters further.

Our W10 laptop is packed away at present, so not got this update yet to check.
Is this change now a shortcut instead of left clicking, then finding/clicking the Power menu, then clicking the Shutdown/Sleep? In which case it's a good thing surely.

NB: Had my first Win 10 crash last week! I totally destroyed my boot partition.

       Partly my own fault I guess, Win 10 creates 4 (four!) partitions when it installs.... DO NOT MESS AROUND WITH THESE PARTITIONS or their Locations.
       One of them is the System recovery partition.....  and I had deleted mine to get disk space back...

The right/left click mouse switching I think must be Windows 10, version 1607 - mine is only 29% downloaded so I'll await the fun!

Thanks for the heads up...
