    What is your least favourite thing about Windows 10?

    Excluding low-hanging fruit such as being forced to "upgrade" from 7, telemetry, and weird permission bugs (I need permission from MYSELF to delete this file?!).
    Cortana voice search; it's a horrible feature :/ You can switch it off, thankfully!

    That ain't my desktop tho.

    I have a few desktops (virtual desktops), one for each colour, and then some with video wallpapers. Sometimes I like to code while watching an asteroid smash into the Earth.

    Ninja edit: Apparently, desktop doesn't refer to the thing behind the windows on the screen, but rather the screen itself. So my correction was wrong. :shrug:
    Mhmm. What you're referring to would be the desktop background.

    You gave it a good go, buddy.

    Not my fault

    It literally calls them Virtual Desktops.

    The folder you see on your background is called Desktop.

    And why would you call the screen a desktop instead of just "the screen"? :mad:
    I apologies sincerely my dear penguin friend. Your screen is as black as my soul. (Or lack thereof)

    Have we come to terms now?

    Windows 8 was a hassle to use on my (non-touch screen) laptop so it was great to upgrade to Windows 10.

    The only issues I get is that I get notifications at least twice each hour saying that OneDrive can't upload files even if I do "resolve" them, and that I'm denied access to areas of the laptop that allow antivirus software to be upgraded.

    I don't like to use Windows 10. I am happy with Windows 7 so far.

    The start menu has ads?
