No update to hide yet. I wonder if they pulled it?

I just got an update yesterday. But it seems to be a point release - Win10 claims it is still 1709, with a later build number than before. 1803 is being rolled out in stages, and hasn't been presented to me yet.

2 of my PC's got a 1709 update today, then after restarting, started downloading 1803. I let 1 install, so far so good, but I'll keep the other one on hold for a while.

I have no wifi bandwidth after the 1709 update on my TP-Link AC1200 adapter - had to switch to much slower internal N150 adapter while I try to figure out the problem...

Edit> 1803 changed my default audio output but that was easy to fix. I also glanced at the new 1803 features - not much there that I can see..

Edit2> Also coudn't connect to wireless printer, but for the moment at least it's back on line. Wi-fi adapter still not working, no response yet on the TP-Link support forum. Others have said that network reset fixed such problems but no luck for me...

Argh!!! Mom's Dell laptop with Windows 10 does not auto connect to the internet sometimes. This results in her calling me from the nursing home and spending 10 to 15 minutes getting her to follow simple instructions.

There has got to be an easier way! A shortcut or batch file something to make that piece of crap connect easier because she never remembers how to do it herself then whines and practical cries about how it's broke.

I'm so tired of dealing with this. Every. Single. Day. Stupid Dell. Stupid Windows 10.

I wonder if this should be in this thread, or in the other Vent and Rant thread. It's about technology, but it also isn't.

At home, I use a hardware calibrated, and profiled Eizo CS240 display. (Remaining from my days as a semi-pro part time photographer.) It has a resolution of 1920x1200, and the panel is 24.1 inches.

At work I use a Dell UltraSharp U2415. It is also 1920x1200, and the panel is also 24.1 inch.

Then why does everthing on the Eizo monitor *feel* smaller, though the settings are exactly the same on both with regards to fonts and everything, while at the same time, the Eizo feels as if it's a huge display compared to the dell?

Could it be because of the wide bezels around the Eizo? The Dell is a very slim display, with three out of four bezels being just 2mm or thereabouts (the bottom one is half an inch or so), and it weighs in at around 4.2 kg. The Eizo on the other hand, has huge 1 inch black bezels, with the bottom one being 1.5 inches or so. (All the ColorEdge CS/CE monitors have this: the FlexScan EV monitors have small bezels nowadays. The competing NEC monitors also have wide bezels, so I assume there is some color technology stuff/thing that requires them..) The Eizo comes it at roughly 8.5 kg, almost twice the weight.

Could the slim/wide bezels be influencing my view, with small bezels making the screen look big(ger) and with wide bezels making the screen look small(er)? It's the only reason I can imagine.
