Windows 10
« on: January 19, 2017, 07:43:23 am »
It seems everytime Windows 10 updates itself, all my preferred default programs are reset to "Microsoft Recommended for Windows 10".

Is there a way to disable this nonsense, without disabling updates?

As it stands today, No. It's not possible to do this It's Microsoft's way to change settings back so they can spy on you.

Heh...I saw a news headline saying that MS's biggest hurdle to get people to accept and move to the Windows 10 platform is Windows 7.

I find that hard to believe.

Personally I really like Windows 10.  I find it easy to use and find the programs I need if they aren't on the desktop or I have not set up a tile or an link on the task bar.  Type in the name of the program (or something close) in the search bar and it finds it pretty quickly.

My default browser has not changed since I switched it to Chrome.

My view is that it is Microsoft's product.  They can change the defaults during updates.  Sorry it's not good enough that they are updating their product.

Software should NOT change defaults when updating .. it's poor form.

Poor form, but there could be a requirement on some of the updates that expect certain values to be at the default.  Bad design, of course - nearly on par with the infamous Sony rootkit.  Maybe the designer kinda-sorta fudged on the resume about their capabilities and this is the best they can figure out.
