    "This PC" would work to do what you want to do. The problem is finding it on Win 10. It is located under the "Windows System" program link.

    Microsoft finally released an update for 1809 17763.134, KB4467708. Manually downloaded the KB and Standalone Updated with no issues. This is on the Apple Macbook running under Boot Camp. Also, have Windows Update Mini Tool installed. It seems to be able to check for, download and install updates quickly and with minimal interruption. However, regular Windows Update doesn't seem to know what has already been installed until it goes to install after its download and finds the update is already installed. Yup, "WCE". Didn't have a problem with a power outage because the computer is powered off for security reasons.

    The MacBook with Windows 10 Pro 17763.55 installed in Bootcamp seems to be working OK. I do keep it "Security Mode" (Shut Down) most of the time but it runs all my tests error free every few days while waiting for the real ".104" update to be released to end users. I wonder if a new Current Release for 1809 will magically appear with a lead in of, "This is what we really meant to send out a few days ago." Same old crap.

    Even Windows 10 Buildfeed seems to be unable to keep up with the Microsoft product. Redstone 5: Current Release: 17763.104 Insider "Slow": 17763.104 Maybe Current Released?: 17763.55 The crap is a little shifty.

    On a previous Windows Update the Microsoft Store app was gone. Tried several times this last month to get it back. Finally came across TheWindowsClub online which gave step by step instructions to get the Store back. It is still Windows 10 but the deck is a little better now. One more tool for the Windows PCs.

    Search for "Media Creation Tool" may get you some options.

    An interesting thought. The MacBook has the 32 bit Windows 10 version but has a x64-based processor. Just did the quit Insider task to keep the MacBook on 1809. I may be laughing quite a bit in the next few months. Which ever way the comedy flows. The Apple does some magic things with software.

    Win98????? Did it ever work???? The want-a-be Windows 10 October 2018 release is quite good when compared to Win98! Haven't forgotten the wasted hours from 20 years ago. Windows 10 for October 2018 if it does get released now is a better vintage of crap! The MacBook will get to live with the next released version of Win 10, the prerelease is already running on it. Just a Wisconsin farm kid who learned to live with the finer aspects of crap.

    As a matter of fact, it's a matter of crap. Windows 10 scenario: 1) It's not working! 2)Turn it off or restart it? 3)When it comes up again, it's working!? I've heard this story so many times on the Insider Forum, I just figured it was programmed that way!? It's a laugh! That's why it's fun. Comedy Central or Saturday Night Live just to put this computer stuff in the proper perspective.

    No, the toilet paper is kept next to the Windows 10 computer.

    At the resale shop people donated a lot of those $300 PCs that had a 12 month warranty. They would say at 13 months the unit would not power up. We couldn't make them power up either. So spend another $300 to get another piece of crap that lasts a year. Cheap crap that comes with Windows 10, double crap. However, someone donated a Dell Latitude laptop of the $2,000 vintage. The software, Windows 10 just quit working, so they got rid of the PC. That was a great piece of hardware that I bought for $40. Put an SSD in it and now it is the Windows 7 Pro work station here. Not all Windows products are crap. But I suppose that you can buy a $2,000 PC for $40 in a resale shop there, too. But the iMac is still the work horse computer with both Microsoft and Apple software running on it. And with no design software used at all.

    Interesting cost comparisons. The iPhone 7 Plus with maximum sized storage had a retail price of about US$1,200 versus a refrigerator with freezer that cost about US$1,800. I expect the iPhone to last for more than 5 years technology and software wise. I saved for more than 2 years to get the money to buy it and also got a discount at the Apple store which helped. Wages are a little different in Arizona. I have a job as a custodian (Fancy name for janitor.) now and make US$2 per hour more than what I was paid as a computer technician at a public school here. Also, I can walk to work now and don't have to drive 40 to 60 miles just to get to work. Glad to have a job. Seven years ago I had saved up and bought a maxed out 27 inch iMac. The technology in that iMac is still beyond most of the computers on sale at retail stores here today. And the iMac runs Apple, Windows and Unix software and applications. Stopped buying cheap new computers because they cost too much in the long run. So, yes, a higher priced Apple is a much better buy than a cheap computer that comes with Windows 10.

    Maybe it's just this area. There's an Apple store within 4 miles from here. Also, there is a SunMacs Apple club even closer. A lot of people have abandoned laptops and desktops and went to iPads. Most people around here don't go to unix because of the learning curve. A lot of people here like iPhones and iPads because of the ease of using Facetime. Yes, people do go to Costco to buy the low priced laptops that have Windows 10 on them. But then they hit the learning curve again. But it's the updates that are the zinger. Past experience has seen too many PCs have been left unusable trying to update. Then, it's, "Hello Apple. What have you got for me?" Maybe it's just an Arizona thing?

    Do you realize how many people will switch to Apple products when they try to get their PCs to cleanly update? A comparison of an Apple MacBook running Windows 10 to a Dell laptop running Windows 10 both about 10 years old and both running Insider 17760.1. The comparison time factor for update to 17763.1: The MacBook completed the update in 1 and 1/2 hours; the Dell laptop completed the update in about 15 hours. That put a smile on my face. It is fun when I smile. So yes, fun! [An that's no crap.]

    Some new crap to think about: Several friends have Windows 10 PCs that they ask me to look at. The PCs are of the 17134.285 released Windows 10 version. However, there is a new Windows 10 release coming out soon so I'm starting to prepare for "some new crap." Just allowed the MacBook to update from 17134.285 32 bit released version to 17760.1 32 bit Insider version that is in the area of what will be the new released version coming sometime in the near future. I kept the MacBook on the old released version so I could better understand the problems of normal end users. Now it's time to prepare for some new crap. Let the fun begin.
