  • Win10 version 1803 shoots PowerShell dropdown list

    Posted on May 14th, 2018 at 15:02 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    I’m still amazed at how many bugs are floating around.

    If you’re in the Windows Insider program, I recommend that you look at Thomas G’s feedback and vote it up:

    When using commands, PowerShell no longer shows a list of suggestions of commands (dropdown list).

    It just shows a . below the command as if it’s unable to open the list.

      I came to a decision this morning that 1803 is not ready for prime time. I will continue to experiment with various systems but this is not getting pushed to any user without my direct involvement overseeing the update. So the majority of our Windows 10 users will remain on 1703 with a dozen or so on 1709.

      Woody, be patient! Windows 10 has been out for only two years and nine months, and barely three and a half years if you count the first publicly available Technical Preview (released 10/01/2014). C’mon!

      (sarcasm OFF)

      I would imagine people would be well advised to stick with 1703/1709 until 1809, possibly longer.
      1803 still needs some extra time in the incubator.

      This right here would massively affect me, as someone who’s in-and-out of ISE all day. Yes I can install VS Code and use that instead, as the haphazard suggestion in the FB app states, but that shouldn’t be necessary. I can install apps to fix most of Win10’s ills, but it’s supposed to work out of the box. *Supposed to. 😀

      I have felt for some time that none of us, particularly you tech credible people, should be continually surprised… and restrained in comments….and I am not referring to you solely or individually Woody, we all know and laud you.

      You and others need to become very much more strident challengers of Microsoft on our behalf but I must admit I think it is already pointless.

      My comments relate only to Windows in a non cloud or enterprise environment.

      We as end users/local computing operators are now into years rather than months of not trusting Microsoft with update/patching control of our systems and/or any meaningful transparency regarding data management policy.

      Certainly monthly, almost weekly sometimes, we have a ‘omg… that is appalling/irresponsible/callous/grossly incompetent/cynical” moment and we all flap around, with guidance from all in this parish and others (thank you), sorting and damping things down…. until the next time.

      Enough is enough now. This release of 1803 is as clear a sign as can be that Microsoft has no interest in providing/supporting any kind of credible OS for local computing.

      Which returns me to my comment at the start  – you guys with technical  credibility and integrity really need to get more aggressive with Microsoft……. Yourself, Susan Bradley, Gunter Born et al…. need to say it is time very directly.

      They sure as heck don’t care what users say. If Microsoft don’t want to do a non cloud/enterprise OS anymore then fine …just be honest and say so with a sensible exit strategy and we can all get on with planning the future.

      This slow, loveless, lingering decay is so wasteful of time/creativity/money and joy…. that is it actually …using Windows has become utterly joyless.

      You guys in the non-fanbase technical press need to shift from flagging/solving issues (which facilitates Microsoft) to directly challenging what they are doing. The present model is no longer an option.

      These are my sentiments and so well written.  Hear hear.  Alas I fear it will come to nothing. I too am sick and tired of what MS are putting out week after week, month after month.  Their rhetoric re W10 being the greatest most secure, most stable OS is fanciful. Fact is they are unable to successfully, dare I say professionally, update their flagshp OS.  The one thing they do well is systematically pry into every nook and cranny of ones computer and re- adjust every setting to “their”way.  IMO W10 is hardly an OS, but rather a collection of Apps that collect/harvest user information. I do agree with their push towards the “clouds” as that is where I believe their heads are.  Produce a stand alone simple OS and I will be the first in line with money in hand.  Failing that I have decided that MS and I will part ways after being a loyal user since the Days of DOS.  PS I was also a loyal Kodak customer!

      “Feature update to Windows 10, version 1803”

      Yet another “update” loaded with bloatware. I wish Micro**** took a lesson from *nix distros and provided it’s users the OPTION to add / remove frivolous “features”… most basic users will never use 90% of an OS capabilities, and powerusers prefer the ability to customize their machines to their needs without the bloat.

      Well, lets be fair, it have been out just two weeks, why would you expect for 1803 to be stable?

      I pray that 1803 become stable enough before 1703 goes out of support.

      Just someone who don't want Windows to mess with its computer.

        Because it’s actually released, out in the wild and in the hands of unfortunate home end-users and adventurous enthusiasts who like beta testing MS’s unfinished software for free? There were times when an actual operating system was expected to not be a complete mess on release.

      This is another example that Insider Program should be just a supplement to extensive internal testing. I am reporting no errors in v. 1803 and am satisfied with it. But I also use W10 to a limited extent.

      W10 is, what it is (draw your own conclusions)

      Found an interesting security article regarding ‘Edge’ which seems to anchor what W10 is.

        Speaking of Edge, I came across this which could be of interest to people who are stuck with Windows 10.

        Apologies if this tool has already been mentioned/discussed here at Woody’s.
