Windows 10 Build 9926 Upgrade Issues
Just finished upgrading my machine from build 9879 to build 9926 and wanted to document some issues. 1) before I forget since the Windows Feedback app won’t work and 2) so others might learn from my pain.
First, the updated Start Menu is awful! I cannot re-size it. I can only make it full screen or the size that Microsoft has decided to make it. In 9879 I had made it taller, but now with 9926 I cannot. I also lost all my pinned items in both my Start Menu and my Taskbar. (Search isn’t working so I have to hunt my apps all down and re-pin them.) The alphabetized Start Menu is terrible. Some might like it, but not me. How can I change it? The Customize button is disabled.
My paused Hyper-V VMs will not restart. I get an error about the saved state is not compatible. I probably shot myself in the foot and should have powered my VMs down before starting the upgrade. But I imagine that if I had left them up and running over the weekend the 9926 build would have installed anyway, so….
I was really hoping to try this but there looks to be some GPO setting in our domain that is blocking it.
