Well according to my Windows.~BT$ folder which was last used today... Around 4GB. It also created a windows.old folder.

Well I never really check the size of updates myself but I do know that it took quite some time before I could actually use the computer again.

 The Install.esd file on my laptop is 3,021,464 KB.  It's running Windows 10 Home 64 bit.

At this point I've installed it on 15 PCs, my laptop and 14 others I support, not counting the 2 test desktops I have the insider version of 14393.10 installed on.  I've seen a few relatively small glitches, but nothing major.  All my software runs just fine.  


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

 No real bit changes to the user interface, but the new extensions in Edge are nice.  Adblock Plus and Office Online are both free.  There are some significant new security enhancements, but they're mostly "under the covers" so they're not readily visible.  If you want to see the Microsoft thing about it, click Start and type "get started".  On the whole I don't find it to be anything to get excited about.  YMMV.

I always use Firefox as my browser which has the AD block and Ghostery installed

 

I dont use Cortana

 

I did watch a couple Youtube videos on the update, and almost nothing will change or improve for me and the way I use 10

 

I have seriously thought about dumping Avast, and using Windows. They say its pretty good

I think you will find the verb tense has changed !  As i understand it you no longer have the option not to use Cortana for search although you may have the option to turn of the voice.

I updated to the new build, and the only problem was that my keyboard mapping was reset, but I was expecting it, and I set it again :)

That's strange! I don't have Cortana enabled, and I never wanted it either. Maybe it is not supported in Canada still? Aura, can you confirm?

You've never had the option not to use Cortana - that's what Windows Search morphed into along with all the added bells and whistles.

 

Cortana is the Windows 10 search function.  If you turn off "Get to Know" me in System Settings - Speech, Inking & Typing pane, and also turn off the inclusion of web search results (which I have no idea how to do now that the Anniversary Update has been applied) Cortana behaves as close to precisely the same as Windows Search did as can be.

I did in the previous build, and it somehow retained the setting. I know that in the newer build, it shouldn't be possible to disable Cortana in the Home edition of Windows 10, which is what I have. I just looked into it and I know why: My language and region don't match, so Cortana has problems and is disabled because of that. Another way to disable it :)

 

Ex: My region is Canada, but the default language is English (United States), rather than English (Canada)

I suggest you look at your process list, and I can guarantee you that you're going to see Cortana in that list, even if you are not using any of the Personal Digital Assistant features or including online search results.

 

People keep having problems differentiating the Cortana process, which is part and parcel of Windows, and "Cortana the assistant" which has been and still is able to be turned off entirely.  If you turn it off entirely you will still have a Cortana process which handles Windows searches.
