    . . . learned from error message #. When you tell it to update again to hopefully get the missing program files, it tells you the phone is already updated to windows 10. If it were, we shouldn't be typing/editing BLINDLY!! Yes, we have to keep moving the keyboard off the screen to see what we've done. Very saddened. HOW do you get the missing files???

    What missing files? You need to provide a little more detail as to what the error message says and what phone you have.

    Some Windows 10 PROGRAM files are what's missing (not my data but Windows files. That should explain te horrible typing blindly that occurs (keyboard covering text). Phone doesn't recogniT it was an incomplete download, so does NOT retry to do a COMPLETE download; just says it's done when not. Unless the error msg would tell you what files are missing, there's no way of knowing! ☹ QUOTE="Triple6, post: 9348365, member: 51122"]What missing files?

    Well "some Windows PROGRAM files" isn't that much more useful. Are you getting an error that says you are missing files? Or is it just a keyboard issue that you are having? Have you tried adjusting the keyboard settings: http://www.wpxbox.com/how-to-change-keyboard-size-in-windows-10-mobile/
    Or is this the problem you are having: http://forums.windowscentral.com/mi...-keyboard-covering-up-text-entry-windows.html

    If the installation is indeed corrupt then you probably will need to reset the phone to factory defaults.

    If you read my entire initial note, you would see that I indeed did get an ERROR MESSAGE telling me there were missing Windows 10 files. No, the error message does NOT tell you what files are missing, sadly. So now what??? OK guess I didn't finish reading either. just noticed your mention of factory defaults. Well, it came with 8.1. And it does not seem to let you return to 8.1 from the 10 that seems to be a corrupt download.
