  1. Did you just copy over the same instructions from the Windows 10 tutorial and call it a day? Not only do the ‘right-click’ menu and the Properties windows no longer look like that (I’m pretty sure these are Windows 10 screen prints), but the changes aren’t just cosmetic. The Ratings field can no longer be edited. It doesn’t even show 1-5 stars anymore, just a phrase “Two-stars.”

    This was incredibly lazy. I hope someone wasn’t actually paid for this.
