Upgraded to Windows 10

Dateline: July 31st 2015

I have been harping on social media that I would wait a couple of weeks before upgrading the work laptop from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. 

I could not hold on any longer and decided to update it even though I was out in the field. 

So I just I installed Windows 10 Single Language on my work machine an ASUS X450L notebook, didn't time the preparation cause I was working. I pressed install 2:24PM, welcome screen by 3:42PM. Not a bad upgrade experience at all. YMMV of course.

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
