    Big W 10 update.

    Just a question. There is this big talk about the big November Update of W 10 starting on Nov. 12. I have not seen anything in the update as of today.
    Does anyone know when it is coming? I have W 10 Pro installed.

    Have you changed the Win 10 Update settings to defer feature upgrades, or whatever it's called?

    There are two or three active topics on this already. Have you checked them?

    Some have seen it, others haven't. As it's rolling out to millions it may take a while.

    cheers, Paul

    No, I have not changed to defer updates. Apparently, it seems to be a problem to MS to get it out. Is there no link where one can download it?

    I still haven't received it either on my win 10 Pro laptop so your not alone. Possibly it's a blessing in disguise.

    I have updated Windows 10 on VMware Player to Version 1511 (OS Build 10586.3). When I went to Windows Update and clicked on Check for Updates, it came right up.

    I've been checking win updates for the last 2 days so some are getting it sooner than others.

    See the Paul Thurrott article in post #5 for one possible reason.

    I upgraded from W 8.1 to W 10 on July 30- but not via thje *.1 update way ( it always failed for some reason), but downloading the W10 upgrade, and then installing it w/o loosing my applications and personal files. The version I have is 10.0.10240 Build 10240. I have all updates installed since. So, what is the problem that this d...d thing does not show up.

    I have the impression that we the customers are the enemy for MS. A bit more customer friendliness would MS do good. I am frustrated. Sorry being harsh.

    I upgraded on 8/4/15 so that wouldn't apply. The "Rollback" folder has been gone for awhile.

    Don't be frustrated, it's only a bit of software.

    cheers, Paul

    I don't know precisely when Microsoft blew kisses my way. But the November update to 10586.3 version 1511 started when I switched my computer ON on Friday 13th, 19:15h Redmond time. Clearly the Windows updates team ignores superstition.

    The download took 5 minutes and the actual installation of the update another 25 minutes.

    It went without a hitch, probably because when the update started, my local date and time was Saturday 14th, 04:15h, not Friday any more.

    A little remark though: the active window now has a coloured title bar, your choice colour. I like that, grabbing to drag is easier.
    Except ... the settings folder and its subfolders, their title bars remain white. I wonder why.

    Update:
    That pesky Insyde Airplane Mode HID Driver reappeared in my Device Manager.

    As I will never use my too-heavy-and-large-to-tote-in-handluggage notebook during a flight, I uninstalled that device again, assuming this won't impact on any other devices. But I also put it in the list of hidden updates, hoping it will not reappear with a next update.

    Am I wrong?

    As far as I can see from a quick check on the interweb, that is a freeware driver that either came with your computer or you loaded. Are you saying that a Windows update reinstalled it???
