Re: W10 peek-a-boo for Junes update

The only downside is the lack of drivers for W10 which is a particular problem with older film scanners.
Recent files etc still exist in Explorer, maybe you need to enable them. The menu system in Explorer (And other Microsoft software) is pretty terrible, itís one of Windows worst features. Whatís Windows 2016? Mustíve missed that one! I havenít found W10 to be any faster but it is certainly pretty stable. Other than the driver issues I mentioned before I havenít had any blue screens. I got my old Nikon film scanner working under W10, search for the solution. If you canít find it Iíll point you at it next time Iím on my desktop rather than this iPad 🙂.
