By safe I meant reliable. I did not mean that the source is unsafe. Because the previous update crashed my Windows and I had to do a fresh install as I could not wait for MS to release a patch.Safe? The link is for a direct download from MS. But, at least where I am, it is coming now through normal updates. I have, in the past, updated two home computers via that route.
Same thing I did....upgrade path.....just to see how that went. I just did a clean install a week ago. So my system was bare. No noticeable features that I can see. What I did notice was the the new Edge didn't install like is was claimed it would. However, when I clicked on the Edge icon....it went straight into update mode.....so I click yes and OK. and it installed. Maybe on a clean install it will be there. I will be doing that in about a week or so from now.In my case, no visible improvements. It must be one of those "Under the hood" things. Lol.
I haven't been into it yet. Installed yesterday, I a opted for the upgrade. I might have to go for a clean install, as, in a couple of cases, it was true to word and kept my old settings. Fine, but, one example, my right click on the menu now has 28 items, including duplicates from previous! procedure
One thing I noticed -Owner beware! - This may be common with major updates, but I have never noticed it before - When it gets to the end of the download and installing/upgrade procedure, it, as always, asks to restart. If you are not attending the process, after (I think) twenty minutes it automatically restores!!
Just to add. Fwiw. Mine was just over 4gbs (windows pro)

Their crowning achievement seems to be that they've upped their emoji game, so I expect future posts to become more entertaining.In my case, no visible improvements.
You should probably, take a seat and pour yourself a Knob Creek or other such beverage of your choosing.I was terribly let down.....with all the hype, I thought it would be this fancy new OS. Boy was I wrong.
Yep....found that out myself.....not sure I like it or not. I left it as is....we'll see.For those that installed the new Edge browser, if you don't want your passwords saved, you will need to check your browser settings as the default is "On". The same goes for login details to accounts!.
This is why most of us have test systems. But for us regular people, 1 machine is enough. That said, in your situation....I would have chosen only 1 machine to do the update and test it before going on with the other 2. But they say hind sight is 20/20.Updated three computers to 2004 yesterday (all desktop) via the update option on the Microsoft website.
It took 2+ hours for each computer to be updated, (usually take 30 - 45 minutes).
After each was up dated, the problems started (a first for me as I have never had problems with feature updates previously)
All three computers were taking 5+ minutes to boot with 2004, under 1909 all booted in under a minute.
All three had lag/stalled responses once started
On two computers trying to run various programmes like Belarc adviser, Google Chrome, etc caused windows to lock up/stall/crash, with only pushing the computers power reset button resolving the issue...
Due to these and various other issues, I have rolled back all three computers to 1909, and will wait until 2004 is available via WU.
