If the Windows Update troubleshooter didn't help, there are still other manipulations that can be done that you may see in the post Windows 10 Updates are not anymore working. However, there is no guarantee that any of them will improve the situation. You might as well break out the big gun now, to return all Windows components to a known good state. ...

If people are still having this issue with Skype for Business loading at Windows 10 startup, and it is part of your Office installation, and you can't change the config within Office, then a rather inelegant method is to find the Skype for Business executable (lync.exe) which is stored in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\root\Office16 and rename it to ...

Other answers are still valid, but the same icon from Windows XP still exists in 10. It is the quicklaunch bar that is hidden. You can reinstate it: unlock taskbar, right-click on it, toolbars, new toolbar, find %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Internet explorer\Quick launch, OK then fit it wherever you want and disable its title and icon names.

There are several ways to make a VPN based on IPSec – it took a while for this way of using IPSec to become standardized. Windows 10 has a built-in IKEv2 EAP (new standard) client and an IKEv1 PSK + L2TP (Microsoft style) client, but it does not have an IKEv1 Xauth (Cisco-style) client for the method that FritzBox uses. It might be possible to configure ...

It seems like the adapter is broken, as reinstalling Windows and the driver had no effect on the problem. Try another network adapter, just to be sure, and if it works well then continue using it instead. Hardware devices are not forever.

There are several possibilities. The connectors could be loose, module malfunctioning, was reset to not recognise, OS etc; if possible, would recommend a new USB wifi adapter that's very compatible with equipment of the region. That would probably yield noticeably improved performance cf the wifi adapter it came with too. And the newer adapter would need to ...

The QuickLaunch “Show Desktop” link is one of the features I loved about Windows 98, and after they got rid of it by default in more recent versions of Windows I always made a point of manually re-creating it. Yes, now you can click in the bottom-right corner (as stated by Alan H); but that’s not obvious, and it’s not how people of my generation learned to ...

Explaination The Task Manager detect exactly 8GB RAM, as I thought. However, it seems that it detect memory percentage of only Memory In Use.

I can confirm as well that the issue (on Windows 10) is not fixed through registry entries or multi-tasking snap settings. The issue is with the settings app auto-arrange / placement for muti-monitors that will sometimes look right but in fact cause the edges between some monitors to become "sticky" requiring higher mouse velocity to pass through. ...

If you have multiple DNS servers configured for the NIC, not all Windows network access will automatically use them. This can make things somewhat confusing when diagnosing DNS issues. Specifically, nslookup only uses the first DNS server configured for the NIC (by default). You can check the DNS servers, and their precedence, by drilling into the properties ...

Straight from Microsoft's website we can see Windows 12 is not a legitimate replacement to Windows 10 if it is even being developed by Microsoft at all. Windows 10 will seemingly be supported forever as of current information.

Starting in Windows 7, Microsoft made "Show Desktop" less discoverable but faster to use (once you know about it). Just throw your mouse to the bottom-right of your screen and click. The tiny rectangle to the right of the Clock is the Show Desktop button now. Why is this faster? Fitts' Law. (You can also use Win + D on the keyboard.)

Clean the keyboard! This problem is often simply due to dust or crumbs causing a key to stay partially down and make intermittent contact. Unplug the keyboard, turn it over and tap the edge on your desk. Still with the keyboard inverted, run your hand back and forth so the keys are pressed in and spring out again. This will dislodge any debris so that it ...

You can use TeraCopy for copying a bunch of files faster. I also use it for fast copy/paste operations. Even you can also compress the files using zip format. But I recommend 7z files (using 7-zip) for a balance between compression ratio and speed.

Since 2015 the human-readable log needs to be generated on-demand When you run the Get-WindowsUpdateLog cmdlet, an [sic] copy of WindowsUpdate.log file is created as a static log file.

You cannot select the bitness of an application to run. Bitness is defined by the development of an application. If you wish to run a 64bit program then you need to install the 64bit version of that program. For some programs that offer both variants you could install both and then run the version you need, but I don't believe you can install both variations ...

Windows does not let you access the WindowsApps folder and its contents by default. You need to get permission for this. Open command prompt as Administrator there.

Jump lists are created automatically when a user interacts with the system, doing such acts as opening applications or accessing files, are stored in the folder: %appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations\ They all have cryptic names based on the application id (APPID).

I don't have enough reputation to comment so I'll add as an answer. From another similar question: It seems that the Guest account has been removed by Microsoft since build 10159, in July 2015.

Well, if the MSPs are well designed, nothing should break just from running that script, unless you later uninstall patches (either manually or some automated process does it) in which case you'll find out if the patches were well designed.

There is a trick actually in addition to what guys commented up there. You can click the mouse ball or middle button which will enable scrolling. Now if you move your mouse a little down, it will start scrolling. Its like an accelerator, so if you move mouse arrow a further down, scrolling will be faster.

You can add the downloads folder as an exclusion and see if that helps. Go to Settings, Virus & threat protection, Virus & threat protection settings, and then click Exclusions.

You need to chose if you want to have 32 or 64 bit on installation. If you find 32 bit on your system, you might have (accidentially) downloaded or chosen the 32 bit version. This is normally no problem, though. If you need the 64bit version, just download the installer and install the 64 bit. Make sure to remove the 32 bit version beforehand!

Google Drive File Stream was/is the culprit for me. Uninstalling this app brings the icons back.

Mklink does not create folders, it creates links. You can name your symbolic link the same as the target folder, but it can't be created in the same folder as the target. Nothing about making a link requires you to change the name of the target.

You will not likely be able to achieve what you want, since the old graphics card modes are no longer supported by Windows. I was very rarely able to run a DOS game from windows.

Git for Windows ships its own version of Vim as part of the distribution. This is because there needs to be a default editor, and the default editor for Unix programs like Git is usually vi.
