comment How to find the build / version of Windows 10
Unfortunately Microsoft doesn't provide a mechanism to determine the cumulative update version. Since they don't really provide operating system service packs any longer, it would be useful information. An alternative would be to use the WMIC command to query for a specific rollup version. E.g. WMIC QFE GET HotfixID, InstalledOn, Description | FINDSTR /I "KB3081438" to determine if the August 15, 2015 CU is installed. A blank InstalledOn date indicates that they system has not restarted to complete the installation.

comment Remote desktop rearranges icons, but not so they would fit better in small resolutions
If you have permission to modify the registry key, you could create a script that sets the permission to deny Changes when logged on in a remote session, and allow changes if local. But that is getting a bit klunky. You may want to migrate this over to SuperUser.

Not if you don't want be able to re-arrange your icons in a local session, no. Sorry!

The setting should be the same, although if you are logging on to the same machine both locally and through a remote session, the same policy WOULD apply to both.

Yes, actually the USER policy linked to the terminal servers OU would only apply to terminal server sessions. It would not affect local/desktop sessions.

comment Does Windows update KB3033929 modify the boot loader making it difficult to install on a dual boot system?
This seems fairly straight forward: "We have been able to verify that systems that have the Windows boot loader enabled as the primary loader are successfully able to install this update and that systems that have a non-Windows boot loader specified as the primary boot loader cannot install the update, even if the user uses that loader to select Windows."

I'm fairly confident that the cache is cleared if it isn't running.
