I thought that I would write some of my thoughts about Windows 10 and XBox. Most of you know that I have been doing the Insider programs for Windows, Windows Phone, and XBox. Yesterday, I got the RTM (release to manufacturer- the copy of Windows that goes to HP, Dell, etc.) build of Windows 10 on my PCs. There's still a few tweaks, but the XBox integration is solid.

Here's my tips to have fun with Windows 10 and XBox. For MS's take, go here:  http://www.xbox.com/en-US/windows-10?xr=shellnav

Streaming works well if you have both computers hardwired. You have to have an XBox One controller plugged into a USB port for this to work.

If you have one of the following series of video cards, you can also record games in Windows 10. The video saves as MP4 video.

  • AMD: AMD Radeon HD 7000 series, HD 7000M series, HD 8000 series, HD 8000M series, R9 series, and R7 series.
  • NVIDIA: GeForce 600 series or later, GeForce 800M series or later, Quadro Kxxx series or later.
  • Intel: Intel HD graphics 4000 or later, Intel Iris Graphics 5100 or later.

My desktop has an HD 2000 series. It recorded just fine during the testing, but on the final, it shut it off.

I got a popup on my laptop the other day saying something like my laptop was eligible for a free Windows 10 upgrade. I accepted the offer and was told I would be notified when my Windows 10 download was available.

Is this legitimate? Thought I would ask since Krisguy seems familiar with some of this stuff. I'm expecting some credit card option to pop up before my download. Free? This is too good to be true!

I didn't read a whole lot about the new features, but the idea of streaming my Xbone onto my laptop would be fantastic! I need somewhere exclusive to play that the rest of the family doesn't use!

Yes its legit. If you have Windows 7 or 8/8.1 you can get Windows 10 free for the first year that its out. After that it costs like $120 or something like that. I just downloaded mine yesterday and Windows 10 is pretty sweet. Works very smooth and is a big upgrade from Windows 8 in my opinion.

So I see. I was just prompted to download it an hour or so ago. Didn't know about the 1 years part. For all I know my laptop may not be able to handle the upgrade.

If you are running 7 or 8.1, 10 will work fine. Some of the new features, like Cortana Voice, may not work. The core OS will work fine on any hardware certified for Win 7.

Does the Xbox app work for you guys? 2 days and all I'm getting is....Connecting......
Was going to uninstall and reinstall but I can't figure out how to remove an app. lol
From what I'm finding, the Xbox app can't be removed. So scratch that option I guess.

*edit* It seems to be working now. Not sure why other than I deleted cookies.

I just tried the streaming option. I was able to play on my laptop with my wireless controller. Maybe because I was only 2 feet away from the console.

I installed windows 10 on my laptop, and uninstalled it about 5 days later. didnt like it, could not figure out how to see my desktop where i save everything to and clean up later, also i heard there would be a start button again didnt see it, after i uninstalled it i read it can disable pirated stuff, not a huge deal for me but for some im sure its huge.

The more I look into it the more it seems that Windows 10 is a security nightmare. No wonder it was free...they're using it to spy on us. I've been disabling shit for an hour.

I installed it as well. Works well however no online video will not play. YouTube and news videos just won't start playing. Adobe flash is also integrated into edge browser by default. But it does stream x1 games nicely

I've had no video issues. For some reason I can't stream anymore unless I clear the cache on the Xbox each time. Not sure what's up with that.

The only thing I don't get about the Xbox on Windows10 stuff is why do we have to use 2 different apps?
The other day I sent a message to someone on xbox live on the regular Xbox app. When they responded and the little pop up came up on the side of my screen, I clicked on it and Windows launched the Xbox One Smartglass app.

Considering the fact that I sent the message with the regular Xbox app why couldnt it handle receiving and viewing the messages as well?

Very redundant.

I have a question for one of you tech guys. If I reinstall Windows on my laptop (it came with Windows 8). Will I still be able to upgrade to Windows 10?

I reinstalled Win 10 from a USB drive using my Windows 8 Pro key. Worked just fine.
