The topic has been resolved. If no options are available: "Settings-> Devices-> Typing-> Automatically show the touch keyboard in windowed apps when there is no keyboard attached to your device" Check if there is a "HID compatible touch screen" in the HID section of the device manager.

Built in to Windows are WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) and WinRM (Windows Remote Management), they both do the same thing but with different network plumbing. Also Windows can copy files to another computer the same way you copy files on a single computer. This batch file will give you a text file of computers turned on on your network. for /f &...

You could use virtual mixing software like ASIO Link Pro or Voicemeeter, to route the two separate channels to separate virtual audio devices. If you're feeling adventurous, you could explore JACK I'm not 100% sure but I think Elgato WAVE Link has software support so it can work with non-elgato devices.

You can open Task Manager -> Startup to see your startup programs: Select the bad guy and Disable it. If you don't see it, go to Settings and search for 'startup apps'. See anything you don't recognize? Disable it!

First, specific software recommendations is outside the scope of Superuser. Try https://softwarerecs.stackexchange.com/ , instead. However, you could write a simple batch script to do this, if there is a central repository with the new files. Use taskkill to stop a running application. Use copy* or better, robocopy, to overwrite the old files with new (...

All the Run commands can do is run an application. If you wish to create a file (batch file just say) run Notepad. So press Win + R and type in note and Notepad should show up. You can run Word this way as well. There is no regular extension .CMD so you would create a Batch File (.BAT) or Text file (.TXT). .COM is a program but you generally cannot create a ...

I recently had an SSD installed at a computer shop, had them make it my primary drive, and had them install Windows 10 on it. Contact the shop, and have them change the Windows Key to your original license. Your own key should have been used and will work. You can always change a disk on a Windows 10 computer. I have done this myself. The shop is ...

I don't know specifically about Visual Studio, but I suggest using a tool like Revo uninstaller. It lets you use the provided uninstaller and searches for files to cleanup afterwards. You'd have to have the program installed, though.

Eventquery.vbs is included with Windows Server 2003, but is now deprecated. The article you linked to mentions the Wevtutil tool. I'm not familiar with it myself, but the documentation is here.

Why does it show a "DNS request timed out" but then apparently succeed? Because it does two DNS requests – one for AAAA records and another for A records (to retrieve IPv6 and IPv4 addresses respectively). The first timed out but the second returned one IP address. Normally if a website doesn't support IPv6 and doesn't publish any AAAA records in ...

Found this in another group ( https://github.com/corretto/corretto-8/issues/133 ) Java Control Panel is a commercial feature in Java Deployment Technologies. It is not implemented in OpenJDK8 (and further versions). Feel free to reopen the issue if you have any further questions.

I only have the Mac version of MS RDC for the screenshot, but you do this on the client, not the host. You set the audio prefs to "On this computer". This leaves it silent on the host & plays on the remote client.

None of these 2 answers work for me. I spent hours on this and the best and one-shot solution for this is to: Install a Windows PE on your USB and boot from USB. Then launch a terminal/prompt there and use diskpart as the OP mentioned to delete anything you want.

For a several Win10 installations I successfully use following patch that should be applied to registry (for example create text file named caps_to_control.reg): Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout] "Scancode Map"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,02,00,00,00,1d,00,3a,00,00,00,00,00

Just copying Robert's comment here: Such large monitors require HDMI 2.0 for the full resolution. Cable and graphic card have to support this. If you have a Displayport try it, 4k support is available in Displayport for a much longer time than in HDMI thus you have a higher chance that it is supported in your 2019 model.

you just need to set HKLM/SYSTEM/HardwareConfig/{..guid..}/BootDriverFlags = 0x14 - these BootFlags correspond to CM_SERVICE_USB_DISK_BOOT_LOAD + CM_SERVICE_USB3_DISK_BOOT_LOAD.

It would appear this is a BIOS-related issue on some Acer laptops. There is a BIOS update that fixes the issue. This link is only for the Aspire A515-56 but anyone else experiencing this issue can probably look for their model number and see a BIOS update for fixing the black screen issue. https://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/support-product/8614?b=1&...

Not possible as far as I have been looking for it :( The closer you can go it to do Win + / Win - which activates the magnifier which does not change layoutt but of course it is not the same.

In my case, the underlying problem was that for historical reasons my LAN is not numbered from the RFC-1918 range of IP addresses. Therefore, this part of Frank Breitling's answer was absolutely crucial Connect to Cast devices on all IP addresses -> enabled That this is not the default is absolutely daft, but there we are.

I see three viable options to send 5.1 to your receiver: Use APO Driver, apply Dolby encoder to your digital HDMI out via that. This solution is less supported, but is the most straightforward that can resolve your situation. Also some games might not properly detect the 5.1 layout, and still send stereo for encoding. Use a Dolby live encoder capable sound ...

Apparently the problem was fixed by booting into Safe mode and then returning to normal boot. This a rare case, but it does happen that some Windows software was unblocked by the boot in Safe mode and could then resolve its own problem.

if you're here with "inaccessible boot device" and nothing else in this thread has helped you, then you're probably trying to boot from an enclosure or usb/nvme drive - you need to do this: edit the registry HKLM/SYSTEM/HardwareConfig/{..guid..} and set BootDriverFlags = 0x14 (the guid is system specific and you could have multiples if you've ...

Its most likely saying that the file is open by the user SYSTEM, which indicates that a service has a lock in it. It is likely that this game has a DRM protection or anti-cheat service running. The right way to remove the folder is to first uninstall the game using the installer, so all dependencies are uninstalled, then you can delete any leftover folders.

ARP spoofing is a well-known attack vector. Linux and Windows have included protection mechanisms against it. From the above link: Software that detects ARP spoofing generally relies on some form of certification or cross-checking of ARP responses. Uncertified ARP responses are then blocked.

There is no performance hit if the two operating systems are on separate disks, except the fact that you will get a boot menu when starting (although you can set your preferred OS and the time to wait for user input). Take good backups of the Windows disk before doing the installation, just in case, up to doing an image backup of the whole disk. If you are ...

I got lucky, the next day, after trying several times unplugging and replugging it, removing it from the device manager, waiting for Windows to add it again. Finally just left it plugged in for a while, all of a sudden, it appeared again. However, when doing a backup, some files were unable to copy. So I am sure this is a hardware issue and will replace the ...

Not 100% sure what the issue was - but booting into safe mode and running startup repair got the mouse working again. Booting into the ASUS diagnostic mode and performing the trackpad diagnostic got the trackpad working again.

You need to use a program called "Hugo" by Western Digital. You can't just download it from their site, but if you contact them with a support request after 1-2 weeks someone will contact you and send you a download link.

There are some inconsistencies in the data that point to the culprit. The numbers for upload speed are about the same. All the other data for jitter and latency match up. The only disparity is download speed. Another red flag is your statement. "moving the PC closer to the router (moved it to within 5 feet, unobstructed, no change in speed)" - a ...
