This has happened 2 or 3 times now where it will update and then crash at 100% then I have to reinstall windows completely. Why does this happen and is there a way to stop it?
(It is a legit copy of windows but it is from a windows 8 key)
But then again, we have to deal with Microsoft latest OS update. Windows 10 version 1803 seems to have negatively impacted gaming performance, with slightly lower numbers and worse smoothness and stuttering all around, and in the case of Arkham Knight, massive losses in FPS.
So i'm getting semi freezes at random. It's not gpu, driver win+ctrl+shift+b doesn't help.
Basically windows stops launching apps.. or responding.. it's as if it was overloaded, however i've got my monitors on and it isn't. It just lags the hell out of my machine.. like it takes a couple of minutes for it to do something like switching window or killing process...
on the other hand some apps work without any issues... so for example app freezes.. i switch to task mgr, i click to kill it.... nothing.... i try to launch ap.. nothing... but on my other screen browser works just fine....
Cpu/mem monitors show there's no serious load..
Any idea wtf ? what might be causing it ?
Started happening after latest beloved april update...
The old task view is better for me, its more efficient looking, clean and simplistic, like in the timeline now, the scrollbar hogs precious space. And the option to create new desktop is freaking ugly when its on the top. Windows developer should have left people with an option to turn off the Timeline feature all together and turn it back to the old task view.
Every time I reboot my Acer Aspire E15 with Windows 10, it sets the mic volume to max, making a VERY annoying feedback sound with the speakers.
Anyone know a way to get it to keep the volume setting I set after reboot, or is it really supposed to just automatically crank everything up to 10 everytime?
Thanks in advance!
I've got a couple thousand images of concept art and thought i'd be cool if my wallpaper changed to random sets of pictures everytime i logged on.
Reason I'd like to know is because I switched to Bitdefender from Avast and I'd like to eliminate as many possible problem causers as possible before I update.
Ok, i'll rant a bit here. If you aren't interested in a highly personal opinion, look somewhere else.
In reading this sub for several weeks now i find it staggering how many people invest so much time and work to force their OS to NOT install updates. This is not how a modern OS works. And the amount of reports about "broken" PCs that contain something like "it installed it inspite of me stopping 23 Services, adding and deleting several registry keys and running a thrid party blocking software i have no clue what it does" is incredible.
Has anyone ever thought about the fact that MS, when delivering an Update, assumes a certain state of Your PC? They have to assume you use the OS as intended. They can account for all the options and toggles they provide. They can't account for stuff a third party "privacy" or "blocking stuff" software does.
Also, you own a internet connected devices. Having it on the most recent SECURITY patch is kind of a public responsibility. In an age of bigger and bigger bot nets, more elaborate attacks and lower hurdle for getting access to devices over the internet, by not updating you pose a risk to any other device out there. From being used for DDOS attacks to spam and cryptomining installing Updates is by far not optional anymore.
You do not have to install the latest "Feature Updates" when they come out. But installing the latest security patches once a month should be mandatory and not to much to ask.
And the whole "Windows installs the updates even though i told it not to" stuff. Microsoft finally got what i said above. They give you an option to postpone updates for a certain amount of time. They allow you to install them at a time you see fit. If you don't do that you will be forced to. Because otherwise you pose a risk to others. If you don't want that, pull that ethernet plug. No Updates and you are good. And i won't complain about that, because you aren't a risk to my PCs then.
Updates also don't take "hours" if you install them regularly. A normal monthly update has never taken me longer that 20 or so minutes on any of my mashines (from my Gaming Desktop to a Atom UMPC). The 1803 Feature Update installed in 30 Minutes plus the initial user settings. Thats for a basically fresh installation of Windows.
I will not say that Windows 10 has no Problems. It has. Telemetry, Privacy, Adds and other things are certainly debatable to bad. But speed, stability and dependability are certainly no problems i have ever faced. And i work with PCs 14 hours every single day. Just get used to the fact to install updates once a month. Look at what will be installed and limit that to security updates. Switch to the slower feature release channel and everything should be ok. Stop forcing your OS to run in non supported configurations to delay updates that really should be installed.
So I went to Microsoft’s website because I had done a free upgrade from windows 7 to 10 previously . But after a format it wouldn’t let me do the free upgrade anymore .
TLDR version of events the windows support rep connected to my computer , downloaded an iso and a USB format tool called Rufus and said once it’s down downloading the iso to create a bootable disk and install it .
Have I been shanked ?
Maybe I should format again
Actually though, I'll never use cortana, I have no use for her, and Microsoft's stupid begging to get me to download the Cortana app only makes it worse.
When using the trackpad gesture to scroll on Google websites, often it registers it as a 'click + hold,' even though I don't press down on my trackpad. This ends up doing things like highlighting everything on a Google Doc. It also makes the scrolling start lagging. Note this only happens on Google Drive and Docs, not even all Google sites.
Any idea on how to fix this?
I can't seem to get over about 3mb down despite getting around 90 mb down. I have no other downloads going and nothing else is really using bandwidth other than Discord and whatever background services are running.
Is there some way to "jumpstart" the Service Host that handles the downloads for the store?
In the process of moving some of the 'This PC' folders (Documents, Downloads, etc.) from the C:\to the D:\ I pointed the Downloads folder to the D:\
I have restored the registry for the Downloads but cannot find a way to remove the D:\ with the Downloads icon from the 'This PC' (see attached image)
How do I go on about removing that?
This is an issue I've had for a very long time. It seems like Ctrl+Shift+V doesn't work for pasting text without formatting. This is really annoying for me because I often paste text from other sites into Google Docs and have to change the formatting manually. I'm not sure if Microsoft will fix this, but I hope they do.
Yesterday I updated my windows 10 to the latest update and no my sound is very weird and echoy. In rust the sound echos and sounds bad quality. in other games the ambient noise is very loud and very annoying. anyone have any tips to try and get my audio back to normal?
I have a dell laptop with real tech audio or something if that helps
It is in fact 1511. It is super fluid. I hear that the performance has gotten worse over the years for W10. I'm gonna try 1803 soon and I'm worried about performance because i have ancient PC (4GB-D3 & AMD APUx2)
I own a laptop with a 4K screen but occasionally I have to use some applications (games, mostly) in fullscreen 1080P because my hardware can't handle those applications at 4K resolution. After updating to the most recent Windows update I noticed that the "Show hidden icons" arrow in the taskbar isn't displaying properly after exiting one of those applications that are running at 1080P - that is, it looks very "compressed" and isn't displaying all the icons. Is there any way to fix this that doesn't involve a restart/logging out and logging in?

I'm trying to download state of decay 2 through the store but the speed is low af, I started downloading 5 hours ago and it only downloaded 1.2gb. Is there any way to capture the link for the appx and download it through IDM, for example?
