Episode 1455

Jose from Modesto, CA
Windows 10 Creators Update - Cortana

Jose wants to know when he'll be able to upgrade to the Fall Creator's update for Windows 10. Leo says that it's always a good idea to wait for Windows to offer it, but this week Microsoft opened it up to all devices, so he can go download and install it. Leo recommends using the Windows Media Creation Tool to put the update on a thumb drive and then run the installation utility to update it.

Rick from Alabama
Windows 10 Start Menu

Rick has a 15 year old computer that still works. Leo says that's 210 in computer years! It's still working, but the question is, what can he really do with it?

Rick wants to know what a factory image is. Leo says that it's the official version of Windows that's a pure Windows 10 install without any of the features that his computer company adds (Leo calls that trialware or bloatware). Rick can download the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool and make a copy of it to install on his computer.
