It's the only thing I need, unendless Notes are nice but when I want to print some "pages" it always turns into a mess.

(Papierformats like Din A4, Din A3 etc. )

Yes, that was an annoying feature. Goodbye

Run gpedit.msc

Navigate to: Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\OS Policies

Disable the "Enables Activity Feed" at a minimum
or just go ahead and disable the other two as well...

Allow publishing of User Activities
Allow upload of User Activities

Or in Regedit if you don't have Pro or better.
Navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System

Create or modify Dword values and set to 0:

EnableActivityFeed

PublishUserActivities

UploadUserActivities

Note especially the additional settings regarding Publishing and Uploading User Activities.

This has happened a few times and just happened again today. I normally have Windows activate night light automatically between 12 AM and 7 AM. I woke my computer at 10:30 AM to find that night light is still on and all of the methods to turn it off manually are grayed out, indicated in my screenshots below. Signing out then back in fixes the issue, indicating to me that this is a bug.

Anyone else experience this? Thanks!

I've tried the fixes from googling - turn off selective suspend + disable fast start.. looking for a fix that will work. Main goal is to have lights on mouse and headset not be on when I turn off my PC at night -- the lights can be very bright in a dark room

Good morning, is it possible for OEM to slow down windows operating system? I have a new Lenovo laptop that is slower than the HP computer I purchased almost 5 years ago. The is no bloatware, no difference is startup applications. What do I do

Heyyy. Since the latest Windows update my PC is super laggy and the entire usetime is cluttered with micro-stuttering no matter the workload, even though my resources aren't even close to being exhausted. Does anybody experience a similar thing and / or know how to help me?

Problem and symptoms:

Normally when you right click on file explorer and click on a folder from the jump list, you get a new window pop out. I click and the jump list closes with no window opening. https://i.imgur.com/4fQBVH6.png

This problem affects programs like File explorer, notepad, MS Word, Paint and other programs including non-Microsoft. Their jumplists just don't open new windows, and won't even bring the minimized window back to the front.

Firefox's jump lists work as usual though. Can open pinned websites and private windows.

Things I've done in attempt to diagnose or fix the problem:

  • Searched around and applied some registry tweaks as well as cleaning the "recent items" with no luck.

  • I didn't have this unresponsive jump list back in March and my latest restore point is from April, so it didn't work either.

  • Restarted the computer several times, as well as doing complete shutdowns. Hibernation is disabled and page files get cleared from regedit values

  • Created a new local user and jump lists still don't open new windows

Not even clicking on "File explorer" would bring any window to the front

Posted this several times on /r/techsupport but got no response at all, so I decided to post on a Windows subreddit

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!

For no particular reason, I've tended to shy away from using the Windows 10 Mail app. I've recently been trying out eM Client, which seems to work just fine, however, I now need to register for an account if I wish to keep using it.

I thought I'd ask my fellow Redditors for your thoughts on the Windows Mail app. (I have an MSN & a Gmail account).

Thanks!

So today I turn on my computer and discovered it was dialing to boot and bringing me to a blue screen with advanced options.

I’ve tried restoring to restore points, I’ve done several command prompts the only thing I haven’t tried is a reset because I don’t want to lose files I haven’t saved in my documents folders.

It start with a. Blue screen saying the computer dialed to start we’ll restart it for you. Automatic recovery fails. Your pc failed to start.

I’ve gone through the rebuilding BCD process but when I enter the -h -s -r command it tells me the “path is not found c:\boot “

This is about where I get stuck and can’t find any help for my specific situation online.

If you have any questions needed answering to help me with this please ask I may be leaving a lot of important info out I’m just so fed up troubleshooting this with no luck.

My computer is totally fine like just 5 minutes ago after I restart my computer. It has black bars around it like a cinematic movie. Anyone know how to fix this problem? I tried to find it online but most of them are "Did you update your driver?" or "You need to update your driver".

Thank you.

Reddit's CTO Chris Slowe sits down with Vint Cerf at Google's Los Angeles office on 3/29 - what would r/Technology like Chris to ask Vint as a subreddit? Share your questions in this thread!

Chris will be on stage for an hour interviewing Vint Cerf, one of the "fathers of the Internet". We're reaching out to a handful of subreddits to source a question or two that represent the interests of each community as chosen by you, the users.

A handful of questions will be selected from comment threads like this one. The interview will take place at a private event, but we hope to post video of Vint's responses shortly thereafter. If selected, responses will be posted to the threads their questions are pulled from.

For thought-starters, here are some questions Chris will already be asking:

How do you think about the current acceleration of technology, especially the impact of automation and AI?

What is the most challenging barrier to widespread access to internet today?

I have recently migrated from windows 7 to 10. Reason being I updated my system to Ryzen from Haswell and these new chipsets no longer support windows 7. After using windows 10 for awhile, I genuinely feel like I am not in control of my computer, rather the computer is in control of me.

Even the simplest of tasks cannot be easily changed or tuned in windows 10. For example, there's no clear way to prevent windows defender from auto scanning. You would think this option would be easily in view in windows defender, but its not, unlike every other antivirus software I have ever used. Neither can I control windows update. It updates anything it wants, I cannot stop it. The only convoluted way to stop automatic updates is to set my connection as metered. And windows app store..where do I even start. It seemingly has a mind of its own. I uninstall an app, some time later, windows app store automatically reinstalls it, without notifying me.

Sorry for the rant, I just feel so helpless using this system.

I’ve never had an issue with a windows 10 update taking a while but, the one I started today has taken 2 hours so far. It will reboot, say “updating 35%” then reboot again.

Is this normal? What can I do?

AMD FX 6300 24 GB Ram 1060gtx 6gb 1tb HDD 500mb SSD

So I have no idea why this is happening. I keep getting this message:

"Your device is at risk because it's out of date and missing important security and quality updates. Let's get you back on track so Windows can run more securely. Select this button to get going."

So I install the update and restart but I get this message:

"We couldn't finish installing updates"

Also this is the 2018-02 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1709 for x64-based Systems

hi guys, i have my main 2 monitor dextop setup fully working but last day i realized that i need a third monitor. i have a asus z97-deluxe motherboard, rocking 12 gb of ram and i7 4790k processor with intel graphics 4600. i don't play games so it's enought for me. i have 3 output: 1hdmi, 1 mini display port and one display port. i used the hdmi output and the mini DP output (i use the apple mini DP to HDMI adapter) for my main monitors and i bought another adapter (DP to HDMI) form amazon for the third monitor. yes, the adapter works, but i can only see 2 of 3 screen simultaniusly. i thought that was the old intel driver so i downloaded the lastest version from their website (i have windows 10 btw) but nothing happened. from window's 10 display settings i can see all 3 but i can't select the third one to manage his settings. both windows and intel graphics setting app recognize this monitor but i can't run all 3. i don't know what i can do. can anyone help me? ps. https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000025672/graphics-drivers.html?_ga=2.268418506.591424160.1524515053-356952956.1524505146https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000025673/graphics-drivers.html?_ga=2.190771629.709047898.1524515088-356952956.1524505146

Can any one share materials with security (mainly windows 10).

Thanks

Running Windows 10, and I noticed my %used of memory was always running pretty high. 45-55% idling.

I checked the individual processes and noticed something that struck me as odd.

I have a supposed 8GB of ram installed on my PC, however the figures given to me on task manage imply I have only somewhere around 2.6GB of RAM.

I reached this figure by checking the amount of memory my Chrome process was using (626MB) and the percentage of my memory task manager said that was (around 24%). This ratio told me that according to Task Manager, chrome was using 626MB of ~2600MB available.

I don't know enough about to computers software/performance wise to be 100% sure I'm understanding this information correctly, so I figured I would ask if this seemed abnormal before I went straight to testing my RAM sticks one to see if they were dead or to see if maybe you guys had any other ideas of what may be the issue.

I also know there are some differences between the types of available memory when it comes to RAM and that its more intricate than I am probably assuming, so that's why I'm reaching out because as someone who's only a few steps ahead of a laymen when it comes to computers I realize I'm out of my depth.

I was trying to use bash for git and was running into problems and long story short I needed to use lxrun to uninstall and reinstall my bash. Problem is the exe is missing form system32. Can anyone help me to be able to get the exe? Possibly upload yours or a way to restore it.

When Microsoft first launched the Windows Insider program with the Technical Preview of Windows 10, I decided to take advantage of that since running the Technical Preview converted into a full copy of Windows 10 Pro at release. I had a few PCs that were Windows 7, and a new PC I built that had no OS before the Technical Preview.

I decided to upgrade hardware in these PCs I've had for three years and now they can't reactivate. The Product Key from the Technical Preview has apparently been blocked from Microsoft.

I was told that running this all this time provided a legal version of Windows 10. The two Windows 7 PCs I wiped, I have no way to recover the old Windows 7 key. Microsoft told me I need to simply buy new licenses. I asked for an escalation and I'm getting a one-time activation code for one of these PCs.

I don't know what I'm going to do about the others. Self builders beware I guess. I know we're not Microsoft's bread and butter the way OEMs and the Enterprise market is. But I feel like I'm being penalized for taking part in the Technical Preview and the whole Insider Program the past 3 years.
