Default Took Windows 5 hours to update

Good thing i was asleep for most of this. Or bad thing I woke up early. A message that took up the entire screen (large font) said "It's taking a bit longer than expected, but we'll get there as fast as we can." Sort of hard to go back to sleep after that. I tried. A half hour later I looked again and a screen was asking me about how I wanted my privacy settings. And shortly after that Windows started. Seems to be okay now.

Anyway, I just did a search and some unofficial advice about this says to wait five to seven hours. In my case waiting paid off.

Here's another thing that happened. It's just too perfect. Early on in my partnership with Windows 10, an upgrade wrecked my ability to use the built-in mic. I tried to fix this, of course, but got nowhere. Well now the mic is working again. But the built-in speakers stopped working.

That is just par for the course with Win10...give with one hand and take with the other...

It gets even better. I updated the speaker drivers and now they work. But the mic records as such a low volume as to be useless

Totally ridiculous!


Is there a separate mic driver?

As in: Transition from depression to rage?

I dunno about "better", but "inevitable" maybe?
