    3 Problems With Windows 10 Tech Preview

    1.How do I get Microsoft Update (instead of just Windows Update) for the Win 10 Tech Preview?

    A link would be appreciated. (I googled it but only got non relevant results).

    2.How do I get to the shutdown/restart options in Win 10 without using Ctrl + Alt + Delete, or is that only possible with Start8/Modern Mix?

    3.I can't close the Action Centre Notification Window. Any ideas as to how to fix this?

    Advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks and regards, Roy

    Roy,

    Microsoft Update was integrated into Windows Update as of Win 7. Maybe as early as Vista.

    The screen shot is from Win 8.1 however the path to this option changed in Win 10.

    Goto Update & Recovery
    In the right hand pane select the last item "Choose how updates get installed"
    You'll find the Microsoft Update check box there.
    Sorry, I have the TP installed in a VM and didn't set it up right to save stuff outside the VM. Have to fix that!

    Roy,

    Got the bright Idea to signon to WSL from the VM with the Tech Preview.

    Here's the screen:

    #2 - Right click the Start Button. Shut down options are second from the bottom.

    #3 - Are the normal Windows controls available? Do you mean they don't do anything? Do you get an error message? Please include a screenshot of what you see.

    #2: Click the power button at the top of the start menu (or start screen).

    Regarding #1, I opened Control Panel\Windows Update and selected change settings and that took me to the option to get updates for Windows and other products from Microsoft Update.

    JoeP517, thanks regarding #2, that worked.

    Regarding #3, when I rebooted this morning to Win 10 the problem no longer occurred.

    Thanks for all the replies.

    Regards, Roy
