For those of you who have tried out the Windows 10 Technical Preview (either computer or phone), how have you reported your feedback or bugs/issues to Microsoft?

I'm genuinely interested as, despite the apparently large number of users downloading the preview, there doesn't seem to be much activity in the Insider forum.

I also wonder whether most people just download it and try it out for a bit without actually providing any feedback or reporting bugs.

What's been your experience?

If I have been helping you and I do not reply within 48hours, feel free to send me a PM.

Yeah... I have several devices and installed to a laptop and on it's own drive on a desktop.

I like the user interface yet the OS is just way too buggy and less stable (IMO) with each build release.

Me and Windows 7 are now one again. lol (Hope she forgives my foolin' 'round with her little sister. :flowers:

For anyone who has the opportunity of providing feedback, please pass on what I have to say below:


"Please make sure Windows 10 can run programs (exe file programs, bat file "programs" and programs you install from an exe file) which worked on Windows xp, for those of us who use old programs(mainly 32 bit based I think), which I would add are able to run OK on 64 bit Windows 8 and 8.1 at present, please be helpful and ensure they can run in Windows 10 as well. I would not be surprised if, after a good hard think, most people would say the thing they want most from any new operating system is the ability to run everything they were running on older computers."

Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB

Microsoft seems to be listening to the feedback from users. They have made several changes to the start menu since last fall. All the minor issues I've given feedback on have been corrected. My only real complaint is the VERY slow download of the last 3 builds ( 10049, 10061, 10074 ).They have all taken over 30 hours to download. The ISO for 10074 was released early and I should have tried that but I thought I would give the update process one more try.

 

The problems I had with Spartan were also corrected.

Nearly everything that runs on Windows 8 will run without issue on Windows 10 - unless the developer of the program has specified that it should not (i.e. the installer checks for a specific version of Windows).

"...the installer checks for a specific version of Windows..." Old programs wouldn't check for windows 10 because they would have been coded before it even existed. I guess then that ,unless an old program has been coded to only run on whatever operating systems were around when it was released, it should work on 10.

Yeah, that's exactly what I meant :)

 

Some installers check that the OS meets the exact criteria because the developer doesn't want the program to run on newer OS versions (perhaps because they haven't tested the program yet). This is pretty uncommon these days (as far as I can tell) but did used to happen.
