Hi drozman :)

Yes, you'll be able to do that. I don't know why a such ... basic feature would be removed. :)

Don't worry, it'll still be there :) You've always had the chance to save files wherever you wanted (except in folders that takes Admin Rights and if you didn't launch the program as an Admin, it wouldn't work). But saving on your Desktop doesn't take Admin Rights so you never have that issue :)

I am also assuming the control panel will still be there to add or remove programs.  Paint would be good to have. and some sort of music player/ video player. Software compatibility I may have some concerns like  burning studio, WinSysclean , Paragon migrate etc.

Paint will still be there, so will be the Control Panel. Windows Media Player stays as well. These are things that have "always" been in Windows, or Windows always worked that way, so I doubt that these would be removed. They are also all in the Technical Preview right now, so there's no need to worry :) As for software compatibility, if you install the KB3035583 and run the "Check your PC" feature from the "Get Windows 10" app, it'll tell you if you have any incompatible devices (drivers) or programs with Windows 10.
