What are Microsoft's Top Support Issues for Windows 10?

Windows 10 is just a few weeks away from reaching its 10 month anniversary since it was released in July 2015.

In that period of time there have been plenty of how-to articles that relate to using and dealing with Windows 10 but there is no denying that there have also been a lot of challenges in running the new operating system.

Some of the first people that get a chance to address these issues are Microsoft Support staff and over on the Top Solutions from Microsoft Support blog a recent article has updated the top concerns for users in 10 different categories.

Some of the issues listed make sense and deal with installing or upgrading to Windows 10 while others are related to post install issues such as a blank Start Menu, using Cortana and laying out the Start Menu.

I am going to list the categories here and some of the support issues that are listed focusing on what are common consumer/prosumer related challenges but to see everything just visit the article.
