Putting a download limit of under a kilobyte on the windows service host basically kills any attempt to download anything update related. Not sure how I survived without Netlimiter, being able to throttle things without having to go through a seperate interface in each program if they even have one is so nice with such shit internet infrastructure.

Why can't I select a default app from my system? It only shows the store... I clicked an email notification and despite Thunderbird being my default app (as listed by Windows itself), it opened the mail app. [vid]https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/17216535/ShareX/2016/04/2016-04-24_13-47-51.mp4[/vid] Also it just ignores me when I set Chrome as a default browser.

[QUOTE=helifreak;50195624]Did they remove the mixer in one of the preview builds because it's still there in TH2.[/QUOTE] No, but between it being a bitch to get to and it using the abomination that is flat volumes, it's just infinitely better to grab Ear Trumpet.

Why the fuck is the whole modern app bullshit so flaky. This is the third time they all just stopped working because I changed a drive setting in the fucking settings app. I just changed the offline maps folder to the D drive instead of the SSD and now every single modern app opens for a second then fucks right off. Changing it back to C drive doesn't even make them work again. At least this time it didn't stop half the OS from working like when I dared to change the default program files drive, only way to fix that was to wipe the OS drive AND the fucking users drive (corrupted user profiles and hidden files you aren't allowed to access yay!). Copying 2 TiB of data to a NAS over a < 100 mbit LAN connection is not fun. Can't wait for some miscellaneous update to make Windows realise I modified calc.exe and put the broken one back again. Also why the fuck does the onscreen keyboard force the input language to change every time you change focused input box until you restart the program you used it on. Fuck off Windows, if I want to type in Japanese I'll press the fucking hotkey. The Win 7 volume mixer does have issues but if you want them all at the same just move the master volume to 0, release, and move back to what you had. Can't say I've ever needed anything more though to be honest. The Win 7 calculator is more ugly than I remembered.
[QUOTE=RautaPalli;50193798]I've never had any issues with it except some games not switching the output device while running.[/QUOTE] If I switch between frontpanel headphones or my back panel stereo speakers it will stop playing audio from either source until I restart the application. Although I bet there are system calls an application can make to better handle this, so it could be software related.

[QUOTE=Lyokanthrope;50193702]Too bad the audio subsystem is still a load of shit and will break apps when switching output devices...[/QUOTE] That's an application specific problem (which I believe comes from using legacy calls). Loads of programs will switch correctly.

[QUOTE=lavacano;50202058]Are you absolutely certain that one or more of your drives aren't just dying?[/QUOTE] It's a RAMdisk so yes. I can access the files on the RAMdisk directly but trying to access them via a symbolic link in the appdata folder (or anywhere else) doesn't work. Notepad++ says the file doesn't exist, Notepad says "You can't move the file to a different disk drive" trying to open a folder inside the link also says "You can't move the file to a different disk drive." Security panel says "The requested security information cannot be used or cannot be shown" on files over the symbolic link, appears fine on the actual drive. It has the NTFS metadata like the modification date and filesize though.

Recreated the symbolic links and moved them to different places and they still don't want to work. Had the same links set up working flawlessly for months. Sagethumbs database appears to still be working fine but that's a file symbolic link rather than a folder like with the Waterfox cache. IME is broken too like last time so I get to enjoy another format.

Is there a program to tell you how much battery each program is using? I'd imagine Chrome using a lot.
