Just for the record .... I'm starting the 1st attempt with WinReducer 10 ... bounce

I didn't type any serial keys too, it's auto-generated I think. I also didn't use any Microsoft Account. 
Just the normal Windows Account with just my Username. Winter, just click on your Startmenu -> File Explorer and then right click on This PC and then Properties. There is your serial key located and activated Wink .

Or what I always do is put the This PC icon on the desktop: Right click on desktop -> Personalize -> Change desktop icons.
Click on Computer and Ok. Then you have the Icon on desktop.

Btw, you can also rename the icon name ( This PC to Computer )

Can't install VirtualBox Guest Additions on Windows 10 Preview, anyone has the same problem? 
Windows shows a message which says: It cannot be installed on this Windows version...

Btw I am running VirtualBox 4.3.12 because the latest version had a critical bug which VirtualBox wasn't functional.
Maybe it was in version 4.3.14 and Oracle already fixed it in 4.3.16. Maybe I should try...

Edit: I tried the latest VirtualBox 4.3.17 and I still can't it running, the critical bug still exists. What is Oracle doing!? 
Sticking back to the working 4.3.12...

Edit 2: With VirtualBox 4.3.12 and it's Extension Pack you can atleast install all audio drivers. Both links on names Wink

VMware Player 6.0.3 is working out of the box !

Yes Winter but I did not use it in the installation (there was no box to enter any serial), also mine is totally different. 
Auto-generated like I said Very Happy , sometimes when I shutdown I get an explorer.exe error Wink

Also guys, how many processes are running in the background? 

On mine there are:

9 Background processes and 22 Windows processes.

Already spotted two silly ones: Windows Media Player Networking Sharing Service and Antimalware Service Very Happy

I'm agree, it's more like a real start menu !

You can also put the Control Panel back to the Startmenu. 
Right click on desktop -> Personalization -> Change desktop icons.
Click on Control Panel, now you have it on the desktop, select and drag the Control Panel icon to the Windows startmenu icon.

OK, feedback for "WinReducer 10.0" :

- Launch : OK
- Extraction : OK (2 editions in the iso : "Windows TP" and "Windows TP for Consumers)
- Mount : OK

So far so good !

I like your motivation Winter Very Happy . Good work!

Can we start a vote? Do you guys like the existing Windows 8 theme design or should MS design a new one?

My answer would be, MS should design a new Windows 10 theme!

descriptionWindows 10 Preview - Page 2 EmptyRe: Windows 10 Preview

I'm OK with that, I will create it, right now, during the 1st Windows 10 reducing with WinReducer 10.0, in the "POLL" forum !

Well I like simplicity if it's done the right way but for me this Windows 8 theme is really boring. It looks really flat ( just plain single color ), has no depth and soul. Not a fan of this concept, the visual design feels like Windows 95 Wink . 

The Windows 7 interface/theme designer was really good, it had great icons and visual design. They should look on some Linux OSes, most of them are fantastic Very Happy

By the way, old Control Panel is much better and efficient to use than PC Settings. Why did MS make two?
In my opinion just delete PC Settings, this was clearly designed for tablet Wink

Also I have looked at the file system , it looks almost identical to Windows 7/8. 
This means with our knowledge it should be pretty easy and fast to strip it to a functional Micro edition Wink
We just need to apply and test it.

1st try (without EXPERT Options) : OK !

Next step : "EXPERT options" !


A "PID.txt", with the serial, is in the ISO ... Wink

This means they are still using their 20 year old patched kernel and I thought they would completely from scratch program a new one.
Too optimistic I guess, lesson: don't have high hopes in MS Wink . Overall it feels like a patched Windows 8.1 that is more desktop friendly.
I don't think that in few months much will be changed... but let us surprise. But I think we can replace it with Windows 7.

Still need to use Windows because of the monopolist politics from Adobe and their Windows/Mac only software releases Sad

Unfortunately, we still need this to create new user on the fly ...

Hahaha I knew it would work, it has the same behaviour like Windows 8/8.1. We should just hate MS, we are suffering from stockholm syndrome  Razz
