Hi, Have not upgraded from Win7 yet, later this year. Microsoft has reduced its size by trimming out drivers, wallpapers, and a number of built in programs and tools. It strips out things users won't need on a device with a small of storage, such as the Registry Editor, Internet Explorer, and more. Even then, Windows 10 will have become it's own brand by then, like Surface, Xbox. One such feature missing is wallpaper support. Instead of removing small components such as those mentioned above, they should definitely consider removing huge stuffs such as the Xbox app.

I am also uploading screenshots of this operating system. There are a lot of things users can't do in a base install of Lean, leaving it up to an administrator to pre-load an installation with certain software or settings that would be largely unalterable. The truth is that this will be another version that can be used, widening the range of offer of Windows 10. Find out if it's a trial version or needs a serial key to activate, the uploader did not mention it. News about a cut down version of Windows 10 intended for low-cost tablets has leaked out over the last 2 weeks, and now you can download and install the minimum viable version of Windows 10 for yourself. It appears that Microsoft is able to make the installation smaller removing certain legacy components and utilities that are usually not required on budget computers. I streamline the crap out of my machines whether they need it or not.
I can't think of a time I ever cared for 90% of the pre-installed crap in Windows 10. Windows 10 Lean is now in the test builds of Redstone 5 and can be tested by everyone who has access to the Skip Ahead version in the Insiders program. Windows 10 has new potentially memory hogging features like Virtual Desktops and desktop Metro Apps If true can this be simplified? According to my sources, Windows 10 Lean aims to fix this problem. I hope all is going well. Another Twitter commenter said it may be ideal for educational use, as schools often have older computers that need a smaller install. Windows 10 Lean Release Date Windows 10 Lean could be released by end of the year, along with the Redstone 5 update.

I would search for compatible drivers first.
At present, we will just have to wait and watch! There is still no confirm date for when Windows 10 Lean Edition will be released. The problem is in the last 10 years. With Microsoft not giving anything away at this stage, all we can do is speculate. Besides the security and technical implications, it makes business sense to do so. I found out the hard way that direct in-place upgrading from 8. While the command line is present, tools such as the Registry Editor are missing.
Windows 10 security won't protect you from tech-support scammers' lies and trickery. Building a slide deck, pitch, or presentation? If it's got a generic, small, 5400rpm drive then you'll want to do some stuff for that, for sure. I don't understand the purpose of this build.
