Just in case anyone else ran into this: win 10 build 1803 (also known as the April update) which got pushed to I guess everyone this week, is terrible for gaming. It introduced this new thing called focus assist, for whatever reason. It doesn't really matter though, because it radically slows down my laptop while I play a game (even years and years old ones, that should run on half a core of my cpu). Had to turn it off completely, slow downs magically vanished.

Seriously, did they not test this shit?

I have to admit I'm considering running linux now... even though it's not ideal for gaming in general and I could do without the hassle of getting shit to work.

And of course it reset all my privacy settings, nothing evil going on here, nothing at all.

Update I did on Sunday wiped out my casual games (old Win7 ones I'd imported cause I don't like the Win10 versions) plus now Microsoft Edge has stupid auto spellcheck and auto correct and I can't a way to shut the f**king things off. Thanks Microsoft for making my day.

Not that I've found. Used various versions of IE before this and never had a problem with them. I do have Firefox as well, but keep that just for Grim Dawn forum. It's easier for me to have it separate rather than trying to find out which tab it's on with anything else that might be open at the time.

What's annoying about the latest update is that in my Windows Settings I've got both of them turned off, but it doesn't seem to affect Edge now and there's nothing in Edge's settings that cover it.

LTSB version should be available to home users without any time limit...no tweaking needed or messing with anything to rid the system of feature-cruft, bloated garbage and 'MS knows best' mentality.
