Is Feature update v 1703 the latest for w 10?

  john bunyan 10:43 31 May 2017

This large update installed last night on my desktop. Loads of new features but no time to test them yet. Is this the long awaited major update, and which features do others find useful?

Ps I notice a new windows.old foler has appeared, so it looks to be a big change. Must check that restore points work

PS As I suspected the system restore was turned off; it took a while to find how to set it up again. Annoying.

Also , as a precaution I created an restore point prior to this update, but it was, with all earlier updates wiped presumably as windows.old is available. I bet some miss the fact that system protection is turned off by default yet again.

Surprised that it updated without you knowing. Looks like it is the latest update but think there is another one due out a bit later.

Nothing worse when you download something and it says making a restore point but it never does.

Just remember windows.old now only lasts for 10 days not 30 as per the original win 10 update.

Thanks, it takes about 16 Gig so I will get rid of it as soon as I am happy. I am interested to hear which features people like on the new update. Annoyed it switches off restore points without notification.
