Two Major Issues With Windows 10

Issues with Windows 10
After Windows 10 has been been released to the massive market of users and followers, several important operational issues were raised and complaints hounded it each day.

Despite the popular inclusion of the Start menu, considerably more speed, flexibility and user-friendliness in the overall operating system, and a significantly improved front-end and aesthetic design, Windows 10 has still drawn its fair share of criticism in its short life.

The stability of a complicated and brand new piece of software such as Windows 10 is always likely to be changeable. And thus early adopters of Windows 10 have been forced to cope with a few problems, despite the overall positive vibe that Windows 10 has created. This is perhaps not a big surprise considering that Microsoft has already released its first large update to the software one day after it was released publicly. But there are still early frustrations for Windows 10 users.

And two major complaints are about activation issues and disappearing favorites. Christopher Morris of provides a more detailed explanation about this two problems:

"Probably the most fundamental problem that users are reporting in the early days of Windows 10 is a difficulty in activating the software once it has been installed. It is hard to imagine a more fundamental issue than this, and naturally this has led to some rather testy responses on Internet forums over the last day or so.

However, frustrating though activation issues unquestionably are, in the case of Windows 10 it is possible to resolve them relatively painlessly. Indeed, Microsoft has publicly stated that any issues related to activation should in fact resolve themselves within a few minutes. This has generally been reported to be the case among the Windows 10 community, but some users have nonetheless experienced lasting difficulties. There will always be anomalies with a software release of this complexity, though, and unquestionably an advisable route for those experiencing this problem is simply to install and try again."
With regards to the disappearance of users list of favorites, Morris has this to say:

"Internet Explorer has been one of the most reviled pieces of software in the world, and Microsoft was pretty much duty-bound to update it sooner rather than later. It is no surprise then that it has released a new Edge browser, and the early response to this program is that it is significantly improved over its Internet Explorer predecessor.

However, some users have experienced problems locating their list of favorites, which are supposed to be migrated over directly from existing Internet Explorer bookmarks. However, in most cases this is simply an identification issue. In order to locate favorites on Edge, it is simply necessary to open the menu and then click 'Settings'. Scroll down to 'Import favorites' from another browser, choose the browser that was utilized previously, and finally click ‘Import’. This should solve the problem instantly."
