    I confirm, I have also this issue. Workaround : double tap with the pen, that will give you two handles to select what you want.

    Had significant difficulties updating last night. My nSP locked up on a set of updates earlier in the day and I had to cold restart it to clear the log jam. A couple of update re-attempts finally got the updates squared away, after which Windows Update refused to download Redstone 3 (Fall Creator's Update). I finally had to force matters by using the Microsoft software-download site that allows direct access to the update. After that, things went smoothly, but it was pretty frustrating up to that point. It may just be me, but I think I've had more Windows update and wake-up problems with my nSP than with any previous version of the Surface Pro...

    Ironically, my VAIO Z Canvas downloaded Redstone 3 with very little trouble, and no "extraordinary" measures. It was the first platform that I managed to get updated last night!

    Once I got the nSP squared away, I started using the Microsoft site for all my other platforms, and everything has been routine since. Four more platforms to go tonight.

    For those who may be interested:

    In all honesty, I don't see any scenario in which the Sets feature would make any improvements to my workflow. Microsoft's example Youtube video shows it for the purposes of writing a paper for school. Personally, when I wrote papers, I wanted my sources and my paper to both be visible at the same time, and I made heavy use of windowing functionality. Plus, in this scenario given, the user is also missing out on OneNote Linked Notes... but then I can see why they wouldn't focus on that since OneNote UWP got rid of that feature.

    Tabs in a web browser make sense because I can only read a single site at the same time. So there's a single fullscreen window and it makes sense there to group those tabs together. For multitasking, that's where windows work best. For other single-view apps I don't really see much of a difference between tabs in one window that I have to ctrl-tab through and a bunch of fullscreen windows that I instead alt-tab through.

    It all seems interesting at first glance, but to me it's a lot of change for very little benefit. I'd honestly rather the Windows shell team focused on a million other things over this.
