        Well, I decided to have a go and upgrade to Windows 10 version 2004 (64-bit).

        I created a full system backup and then used the latest Media Creation Tool (MCT) to make an installation USB Flash Drive.

        I then used the USB flash drive to do an in-place upgrade (keeping all my files and Apps).

        After about 45 minutes, installation was complete: Windows 10 version 2004 (OS Build 19041.264) is up and running.

        So far, after testing printer, scanner, and all software/Apps, I have not experienced any problems.

        If any hassles occur, I will update this thread.

HP 1TB USB SSD External Backup Drive). Dell G-Sync 144Hz Monitor.

        The only things I have noticed so far:

        1  Arrows reappeared on shortcut icons.

        2  Some items removed from right-click context menu, notably “Copy to folder”, “Move to folder” and “Open command window here”.

        3  Disk defrag set to a schedule (previously Off).

        4  Some scheduled tasks, previously disabled, reset to enabled.

        5  Status of some Services changed.

        All of minor consequence and easily fixed.

          I wonder if points 1. and 2. were previously set to your preferences by a 3rd-party “tweaker.”

          BTW, is Restore Point Creation enabled (if it was previously)?

        Irrelevant whether they had been set by a “tweaker”.  That’s how I wanted it and was using it, so why did MS have to change my settings?

        Two more changes:

        6  “Windows 8” style games (solitaire etc.) had been wiped.

        7  Optimal TCP/IP settings, as determined by TCP Optimizer, had been changed.

        Again, minor annoyances and easily fixed, but why??

        @Zig:  In my case, a Restore Point was CREATED during the upgrade, even though I had disabled it in the previous version of the OS.
