    What's New in Windows 10's Big November Update

    The update still hasn't shown up for my laptop yet. MS is doling it out a little at a time evidently.

    Windows 10 gets its first major update today, with a number of features you’ve asked for—like colored title bars, fixes to the Start menu, and (finally!) a better way to activate your Windows 10 license.

    What's new?

    I hope I haven't been downgraded to Windows 10 "Home", instead of the Pro version I currently have.
    I guess I'll see when it finishes downloading and I re-boot it.

    Alright, finally done downloading and installing, this was no small task either, it felt like the full
    fledged service pack it is;
    *It took about 10 to 15 minutes to install, booted 3 times.
    *Re-installed many of the start menu stuff I removed with the "Power Shell uninstall commands".
    *It left my services alone, nothing amiss that I could see, except a lot of Xbox stuff.
    *Turned my "right click" taskbar menu dark grey
    *All my privacy settings (everything I turned off) remains unchanged, at least the ones that didn't get re-installed with this update.
    *Apparently my original Windows 8.1 pro got upgraded to Windows 10 home upon upgrade a few months back[??]
    I don't know how I missed that, I had automatically assumed that 8.1 pro would upgrade to W10 pro, so go figure.

    I looked at the list of new features the other day and was completely underwhelmed.
