I'll reiterate that has changed with anniversary update. If your start menu has a scroll bar to scroll through the programs as soon as you open it instead of the "all apps" link you have anniversary update. When you go into the advanced options instead of that selection it gives you selection for "active times" when it will not restart computer. I'm on my PC or I would post a screenshot.

Do you have drives with Windows sytem folders on them? The reason this PC does not have anniversary update is apparently because I have moved the data folders like pictures, documents etc to different drive than the OS drive. If you manually search for updates it won't find it, I would assume MS is blocking it for me until they fix whatever bugs are going to FUBAR my system which has apparently happened to others. I'm glad I had the defer upgrades checked.

Ah, did find something I am missing.
If you see this icon (see attached)


A different way:
Click the Magnifying Glass and type: Control. Open your Control Panel.
Click the GREEN link, lower left > Programs. Right pane > click GREEN link "Default Programs". Choose "Set your default programs".



Will do. Thanks so much Tek!
I used this method and got the required results.

Here is what the start menu and update screen looks like if you have the anniversary update. That's on my laptop, my PC still has original screens. Like I said it doesn't find the anniversary update and I'm presuming that is because of the issues with the update and other drives.

The folders I have on D: are Pictures, Documents etc. If you right click those Windows folders, select properties and on the location tab you can change the location. You'll do that so when something defaults to those folders like creating a folder in Documents it will be created in Documents\. It will also send you to right folder if for example you click Documents.

I don;t know if it's just Windows system folders or folders on any drive, I've read about the issue briefly. Apparenlty that update screwed up a lot of computers with setup like mine.
