You’re most welcome!

Maybe the next step is to reset all the apps. To do that, go to the Application Library screen and then press shift-Esc (and confirm that you want to “delete” all apps — this will remove any custom apps added, any apps customized, etc.; blank system apps will be present in the Application Library after shift-Esc).

With FileZilla, I see older firmware images in /pub/calculators/Prime at

The setup screens appear a bit different too!??

Yes, this is normal. My revision A Prime is the same; it doesn’t have wireless capabilities. (Wireless Network Properties are configured in page 4.)

The Program Catalog uses one slot for the program for the active app. (Which, it seems, was the Function app when you went to the Program Catalog. You should see a different program there if a different app is active. I do think some changes to the UI should be made here, to make it a bit more obvious what is going on to those starting out with the Prime.) If you haven’t started a program yet for an app, it will still occupy a slot in the Program Catalog when the app is active (tapping Edit should then bring up an a source code editor without any code yet present).

The Data Streamer is also greyed out on my revision A Prime.

This should be the case on both of your Primes.

Would you happen to know if your Win10 machines are running 32-bit or 64-bit Windows?
