Windows 10 Creators Edition - Nightlight
« on: May 10, 2017, 10:09:00 AM »
The latest Windows 10 (called the Creators edition) has just forced itself onto my PC without my consent, and installed a vast number of "improvements". Actually it seems rather good, though I'll never play with most of the new toys.

It has a thing called nightlight which  claims to change the colour temperature of the monitor between daytime and nighttime. It appears that you can set the temperatures you want, or just turn it off (thank goodness). But how useful is that for photo editing? Could it be an easy way of matching the monitor colours to a printer - and if so, exactly how, or is it just one more way to really screw things up?

Knew nothing about the nightlight - and as my main monitor is a calibrated one, then I've turned that off!

Been waiting for it to apply this update on my PC's for a while now, so far I've escaped it.  :)

Mick, I read somewhere that MIcrosoft were staggering the updates to target the most recent PCs first - presumably they have the best chance of not being rendered inoperable by the first escape of the software - so I assume that your's isn't a very new computer.

How do you know if the update has struck? I have a year old laptop that spent the best part of a day on Tuesday downloading Windows updates before spending a few hours rebooting itself.

Jeez, I hope I am back of the queue for this update.
Getting pished off with all these changes and so called "improvements" of W10.
On Thursday my lap top also spent hours doing updates and reboots and I assume these must be in prep for this "new" version.
They also keep trying to install updates for office which I do not have and then giving me errors of update failures for it.
For me W10 is getting close to being the crapiest system released. Not quite as bad as vista yet, but coming close.

I must be your anti-matter Windows user. We still have an old desktop running Vista that has never missed a beat, and I really like Windows 10, although it is sometime a little flaky on our really old spare laptop at times, but all I use that for now is to run a DAW and amplifier software. Sorry ;)

And on the anti-matter subject, for me XP was a total disaster . . .

Thanks, yep I gathered it would be staggered, but didn't realise the reason was based on age of machine, thought it was for load on system etc. I learn something new every day. ;)

If your machine is currently running version 1607 then you haven't got it yet.  Start > Settings > System > About.

I`m on a relatively new machine still on 1607 but have to say that I have had no problems at all with Windows 10 (touch wood). It came installed on this machine and whilst I found a hack to switch off auto updates I didn`t bother doing it in the end as I trust Microsoft more than I trust myself with a PC. Hated Vista, loved XP and Windows 7.

I like w10. One of the best out there. I have been using server 2016 on a job as well and that seems very good and is very much like w10.

This is all very topical for me. Coming back from Holiday, switching on the PC and it upgrades to something new. It all looks the same, but I now have Windows EDGE instead of chrome or explorer. No big deal, but I am unable to run Java scripts, even after Googling and performing all the stupid things they recommend. I have normally no problems, but now I am getting rather annoyed.

You do have explorer - you can find it on Edge by clicking on the 3 buttons on the task bar at the top right and is an option to open in IE. :)

Chrome has disabled Java for sometime - but IE works ok with it still, not sure about edge as I don't use it. (at the moment, if the speed is what is claimed and I can find the imported favourites, I might switch!)

And for the NHS as well, by the looks of it. Actually unfair, it's because of the numpties who work there - MS have stated publicly that the vulnerability had been patched through standard updates, but someone wasn't running them it would seem.
