    Anyone else having issues with photos not backing up to onedrive despite everything being correctly setup?

    Not thrilled with it so far. Every once in a while, 1/2 of my screen goes black and the rest of what SHOULD have been displayed is shrunk to fit in the remaining space. I have found a few random settings that crash and take me back to desktop. Also, how do you edit, delete, sync, etc. edge favorites? Talk about annoying!

    STILL hate the email app.

      Don’t worry
      That 1/2 of the screen thing is a feature: long pressing the start button will move the whole UI towards the bottom of the screen so you can reach UI elements with your thumb for one handed use (long pressing again will move the UI back up). That feature was introduced to W10M a while ago, although this is the first time that it’s available on devices with screens smaller than 5 inches.
      Regarding edge favorites, you can edit and delete them in the “hubs” menu. And they seem to be synched with my IE favs from my Surface, although I’m not sure how well this feature works yet.

  • I can’t update to build 10536 on my wp because I keep receiving this error 0x800705b4

      that’s strange. Did u try a soft reset and then updating again. If that doesn’t work may be hard reset or rolling back to WP 8.1 helps.

      • Ahmedov

        rolling back to wp 8.1 works fine thank u, I hope Microsoft fix this issue

    sadly, my Lumia 930 has crashed several times today after the update.. Will do hardreset and see if it improves. Edge has been awful, blank pages while loading, it crashed after first use of maps, and dropped several calls and had several blank screens forcing me to reboot.

    • Kamal

      Yes, a hard reset may be needed.

      • Robert

        I did a hard reset and can confirm it works great so far
