travelin, YOU are da man. I just read two long reports on iOS10 and neither of them mentioned this. Whoa, this is almost like we actually owned the machine.

Thanks for the info, this looks like the one I want. I've wondered why the unwanted clutter couldn't just go away. ;)

Hurrah, hurrah, does that mean I can get everything onto a single desktop? And that's speaking as someone who had That ### U2 Album sitting on the iPad for MONTHS before I figured out how to make it go away for good (and I'm still afraid it will rematerialize next time I have to synch).

Now the question is: What new features will iOS 10 have that we don't like, and have to put up with just for the tradeoff? The last two times I paid money for a software "upgrade", the new version turned out to have at least one feature that I disliked so vigorously, I promptly reverted to the previous version. Shades of Word 6.

Right. Once upon a time I was on the bleeding edge of new updates. Now it's always "you go first." This is why I'm still on Maverick. I depend on "spotlight" to search my Mac to find what I need quickly. They way Apple has changed it makes it less useful to me.

Funny you should say that. I caved in and "upgraded" from 10.6 to 10.9 when it was free. It's got maybe one new feature I like, while getting rid of several others I liked. Even going from 10.4 to 10.6 meant leaving a couple of things behind.

But then, I generally liked the Classic user interface better. She said, dating herself. It felt as if I had more control over what I see and how I interact with the machine. Matter of fact, each successive system upgrade over the last 20-plus years has provided a less useful version of Help. I liked the one that gives a popup box-- immediately, not after playing dead for several minutes-- and draws a red ring around the part you need.

I depend on "spotlight" to search my Mac to find what I need quickly.

Especially when they've become so good at hiding things. "Dammit, I only just saved that file, where the ### did they put it?"

They lost major points with me when they changed the tag colors to little dots. Maybe fine for lots of people but when a folder may hold a couple of cards of images for one event it was much simpler to categorize/classify them with the full highlight. Not all "improvements" are welcome. Choice is a good thing. :)

Agreed, that was a poor interface decision.
