not sure but that was not my experience. after I did the update I got a notification welcome to Windows 10 et cetera but I can't remember the rest. then I had to go through the installation process. pretty painless but I had to use narrator to assist me with this early stage.

When I started the computer, for the first time since all kinds of quite updates I am hardly aware of, jaws announced that windows was updating and I should not shut down the computer. It did so and restarted, did not take much more than 4 minutes, so I assume I am on anniversary, as I do not know of a way to check this easily. All went well with me and I had no issue I was aware of. The only issue I have, but had it in previous versions of jaws, is that it suddenly ceases and restarts and in my system tray I get jaws twice. I wonder if anyone else had this, or could perhaps, explain to me why this happens. Otherwise, all fine with the update here.
