The first large update to Windows 10, called "Threshold Wave 2" is expected around October or November. This will also happen in 2016 with Redstone in July/August and Redstone Wave 2 in a similar Oct/Nov timeframe.
What differences will this update make?

I've seen mostly GUI tweaks and bug fixes, but I'm hoping it brings the extension support to Edge.
Of the more than 75 machines and 50 users of Windows 10 that are known by us personally...only 2 people use Edge - all the rest use Chrome for their browser.

Works great with WIN10.

I'm one of them, but partly because I won't really use it until it has extensions. Once it does, I'll give it a try as a daily driver.

Am I alone with ctrl alt delete/ task manager not working?
I get a menu with ctrl alt delete, but I cannot select any of the options and I have to hit escape to get out of the screen.

Try doing an uninstall of the mouse and then a rescan hardware so that it finds it and reinstalls the software / driver for it.

I saw that Windows 10 is supposed to have a setting for auto rotation in the settings. I do not see that setting. Could different downloads of Windows have this setting?

I discovered this yesterday. Remember when I posted that if you click on the > and not the Icon in the start menu that you could choose from the past history and go directly to it .
Well, if you have a program Icon in the Task Bar and Right click on it you can do the same thing. I had drug the Open Office Icon that I use for my main item for keeping up with my stock prices, history, etc. with.
When I Clicked on it, it opened up the Open Office program but did not open the spread sheet that I wanted. It was just ready to start a new one. I right clicked on it to see what it's Properties were and I saw the last several spread sheets that I had opened with that program. Slide your pointer to the one you want to open / run and click on it and you are off and running.

My next possible Win 10 issue is the process Runtime Broker. I know it was an issue starting with Win 8. Some 'app' I have will cause Runtime Broker to consume up to 3+GB of memory and run the CPU up to 40+ percent. Evidently it's an application issue which will require some update. The problem, of course, is figuring out which app is causing the problem.

Now I've found MS Edge doing similar things (one instance anyway)

Anyone have words of wisdom for working out the offending apps, besides killing one process at a time and waiting hours to see if Runtime Broker ramps up?
I had this issue as well. One of the suggestions I found was to turn off the "Show me tips about Windows" option under Settings / System / Notifications and Actions. That worked for me, I haven't seen it happen ever since I turned that setting off.

My wireless Microsoft mouse works. I can also use the Tab key to move between selections on the Menu. Task Manager is one of the eight selections available, including the three icons (Connect to Internet, Ease of Access and Shut Down) at the bottom right of the screen.

Are any of the Apps you run setup to Autostart ?
If yes, you might disable that and start them individually and see which one causes the increase .
Yes, lots of Autostart programs. Yesterday when I got home from work, Runtime Broker was eating 4.28GB of RAM and 50% CPU. Eek.
I should take pics of my wife's task manager vs mine and see what the difference is. Her Runtime Broker doesn't ramp up.

Sounds like a memory leak. FWIW, my runtime broker is only using 10 MB. I'm not running any Metro apps, tho, and I've also disabled all the Windows "phone home" ware, using ShutUp10.

I have no intention of using Edge. Chrome works really well.

Yup, I looked at it once, saw no extensions and quickly switch to Chrome, where it will stay.

It has one feature I really like and that is the ability to turn Flash Player on or off with a couple of clicks of the mouse.
I wish they would add that to IE11.

Chrome does use a bit of memory, tho. Shown below are the task manager with just this page open and a couple of extensions running in Chrome, and the same page open in Edge.

EDITED TO ADD: And that's 64-bit Chrome 45, which uses less memory than its predecessors.

Am I reading the thumbnails wrong or does Chrome use less memory than Edge? Sure looks like Chrome uses less. I must be reading it wrong?
