I can't scan to the computer from the printer
After scanning a lot recently with out any problem, now the message comes up -"the scanner is in use or unavailable ( E1460 - B 305". I have tried a few things without any success such as : uninstalling the scan software and then re install, checking the connections and switching everything off, unplugging the printer and then after a minute reconnect the printer and turn back on. The computer is an Acer desktop with Windows 10 and the printer in an Epson XP - 8500 (printer and scanner ). I am still able to print from computer files as normal. Any advise/ideas would be much appreciated. Pete V
I had a work PC configured, then Microsoft forced an update
Hi, I would like to ask a Microsoft Manager, (any department will do), how would you feel after you find that your working PC is not working anymore, while you have a customer in front of you waiting to start a recording session he paid for. I have a DAW, configured with 3 monitor and one professional Dante audio interface. I run a recording studio. My work is to record musician sessions in a dynamic way, following and inspiring artists to focus on creativity and music, not on technology. Today I had to cancel the session, a band that arrived from abroad, because the last Windows update left my system in a non operative status. I am working hard to recover the technical situation, but I think I have lost a customer. They asked me: why you do not use MAC? I decided to use Windows because I was curious to see if the belief that Mac OS is better for professional recording studio was correct. I gave Microsoft credit. But, this is the third time I have this problem. It is not acceptable. I will update (should I say upgrade) the systems to Mac, but as a short term solution I have to reconfigure the DAW. Do you know what I have to do to reconfigure my system and how long it will take me? I will tell you. Read the following log. 1. AMD Radeon HD 7770 Ghz Edition - driver gone - I had to reinstall - 40 minutes 2. wrong resolution on display n.2 (LG ultrawide HDMI) - 10 min. 3. three desktop - on the display n. 1 I have icons of the previous n. 2 / on display 2 there is nothing / on disp. 3 a mess - 20 min. 4. The color management is gone! I had to run Spider5Express on 3 monitors to recalibrate the colour - 1 hour and 30 minutes 5. Audio: reconfiguration I will continue later... but... Gentleman, my feeling now is that my DAW is not really mine! Microsoft have the control on my belonging. I pay for something that I have to disconnect physically from Internet otherwise I can not avoid updates? This is unacceptable and ridiculous.

Samsung Monitor (S27D390) has dark areas after update
After recent update of Windows 10 (current OS build 18363.1198) running on Dell XPS8500, my Samsung Monitor (Model S27D390 - functioning as monitor 2 of a two monitor set up) has dark areas that change when I reboot. Monitor 1 is functioning correctly. Anyone have any ideas about fixing this problem. I have loaded and run the most recent driver for the monitor.
I maintain 10 computers for our computer club. Our default setup is one administrator account, for maintenance and installations, and a generic member login with limited privileges. This is closer to a business environment than a home one. Yesterday I did a clean install of Win10 (20HS) on a laptop that been running Insider releases. Now, when I create an account I am asked to supply or create an MS email account, or phone number. Is there a way to create accounts to match what I have on all my other PCs or do I need to go back to an older release?

Home Network Issues
My home network, Wi-Fi based, lacks stability in that it often fails to present in File Explorer networked PCs I intend to access. When this happens, I have to leave the computer I am using to go to the target PC to perform what's needed. It's really a problem of inconsistency ("now you see me, now you don't"). Each PC is setup on the network by simply entering the password for AT&T gateway/modem, without creating any kind of homegroup or workgroup, etc., etc. Where am I going wrong? Is there a tried and true home network setup method that I can use to avoid this annoyance? Any help this community can provide would be greatly appreciated. By way of background, let me say this: System: Windows 10 Home, 64-bit Connectivity: Wi-Fi Number of Pcs: 6 Thanks. ca le
Is there a way to wait to install an update
I have tried to turn off windows updates but even when I go in and disable them, they still manage to turn themselves off. I only find out when I got to turn off my laptop and my options are update and restart or update and shut down. I like to be there when it's updating and sometimes I want to go to bed. So what are my options ....I have to sit there and wait for it to update. Why can't they give me an option to ignore update for now and shut down normally. I feel like I have no control over my computer updating. On my apple devices it tells me when there is an update available and I can decide when it's a good time for me to update. Is there some way around this? I'm in the market for a new laptop and I am seriously wondering if I really want to get another windows laptop because of the lack of control over the updates.
