    For me, it’s the ability to customize Quick Actions in Action Center so I can hide the stuff I never use. There are far too many buttons there.

    Oh yes I forgot about forced driver updates becoming optional. That’s a BIG and important positive change.

    I am sick and tired of hearing about the wonderful features of the Windows 10 anniversary update. Many millions of us haven’t received it yet!

      You always can try an Insider build in a VM, on VHD or install it on the separate partition.

    I love the new Calendar events integrated into taskbar clock.! Very cool and a great time-saver!

    1. Sergey Tkachenko

      yeah. very nice idea.
      But it opens so slow compared with the old Calendar popup.
      I miss it very much.

    I love the fact it’ll be released soon and we can move on to more interesting news. Almost everything new I’ve seen about it focuses on things I don’t care about (e.g. calendar events integrated into taskbar clock, which I wouldn’t even see since I use the reg edit to get the traditional, faster and more compact calendar), or stuff about improvements to the Start menu (which I won’t see because I’ve already replaced with StartIsBack++ so I get, you know, functionality that was removed with this abomination that Win 10 comes with).
