For me, even the simple, basic stuff is annoying on Win10.

For example, the incessant attempts to hijack file extensions. Reinstalling Irfanview (64-bit) on my machine borked the custom icons of image files and made Windows Photos the default image viewer.

I had to go to Advanced Settings, choose the default program, then launch Irfanview in admin mode and select the Icons Plugin. Finally, I have to right-click on Desktop, view Medium icons.

No such problems with Win 7 (or Win Vista, which I consider to be okay after SP2).
