Hi,

Let's see what we can do to collect more good tips and add them here. 

A couple of my favorites:

Keyboard shortcuts -- This is something I need to spend a bit of time with because there are some new keyboard shortcuts for Windows 10.  The list can also be downloaded from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48716

Windows 10 and privacy -- There has been so much press about Windows 10 privacy.  See the Microsoft FAQ on what data is collected, where it is stored, etc.

Windows Explorer File Explorer -- a new name and more flexible than ever before.  Here's a couple tutorials covering File Explorer features:

How To View, Pin & Unpin Items To The Quick Access Section Of File Explorer In Windows 10 -- I really like this and have pinned a few locations that I find I access frequently.

How To Use File Explorer To Share Files & Folders In Windows 8.1 & 10 -- While you're experimenting with this, also click on the View tab.  If you're like me, you will want to check the box to show File name extensions.

How to fix:
Windows 10 is trying to install some drivers on some pc's that is not necessary. F.ex you may see this message after you have upgraded to Win 10.
If you usually don't have AMD drivers on your computer then just uninstall AMD Catalyst Drivers and Control Center

Error Message:
Warning catalyst control center is not supported by the driver version of your enabled graphics adapter. please update your AMD graphics driver, or enable your AMD adapter using using the display manager.
