10S to Pro
I'm looking to gift a Windows 10 S to Pro tablet and have read the good and bad about switching. I've read the articles, watched the videos, still don't have to T-shirt though. If you've done this what was your experience, and was it worth it? To others in here, not to hurt your feelings but if you haven't done it please don't bother replying, as I've said I've watched the videos and read the articles. Thanks
Recent update moved all files
A recent update (on 11/8/2020) moved all my files to C:\Users\12169 and very few things function anymore (camera, outlook, calculator to name a few). Once I found where all the files were moved to, I move them back to where they should be, it updates again, and hides everything again. As a bonus all files that have been created since the first update a week ago are NOWHERE to be found after each subsequent update. I have tried to restore to an earlier version of Windows 10 and a message comes up to remove new account but only has one listed. Any thoughts?

Will they shut down the activation servers of office 2010
hey guys I still use Microsoft Office 2010 to make documents and for school because google drive is very buggy for me (and I think office is much better good job Microsoft) I might need to activate it on my new PC which may come after support ends in two weeks. Will they close down the servers to activate it? I think probably not because I still have product key for 2003 and it worked fine last week but just making sure. I would also like to know why stuff from the 1990s won't work on my x64 bit Windows 10 PC. I still use Vista or 7 for those but know if I get a virus bye bye Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000.
Complete Black Screen Everywhere. Even In Safe Mode.
Hello, please help me! I just downloaded a theme from devianart, installed it, then when I clicked on it through windows settings, it said "Please Wait" for a second (default screen when themes are changing) and then just made all my active windows black. Explorer, chrome & Windows Settings was black & suddenly, screen completely turned black with just mouse pointer showing up. Can't use Start, Run or Ctrl+Alt+Del. Couldn't do ANYTHING accept holding the power button for 10 seconds and pressing shift to enter recovery menu (the one with a blue screen and 6 options like troubleshoot, continue and reset) there i ran cmd and tried to uninstall my current theme, but it just showed 3 themes - . , .. and aero. i couldn't find the custom theme name, not a single! (i had multiple downloaded but never applied) I tried system restore point, that failed (i made one before installing the theme) I also tried startup repair, didn't work. FINALLY I tried safe mode, but IT DIDN'T WORK TOO! Just my mouse cursor size increased and black screen was still there, nothing working at all (same as in normal mode). Please help me! All information is above!

I have used the MS Windows trouble shooter for speakers (numerous times). I believe after a software update my speakers have been garbled (not clear sounding). I usually run the trouble shooter (the problem with speakers comes back after shutting off the computer), normally the trouble shooter fixes the problem, but not always. I could not find any frequently asked questions that handle this situation or a permanent fix/correction for it.
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.
The Narrator and I
The Windows 10 Narrator bot is such a valuable resource to me. In fact I would be unable to fulfill my professional and personal commitments without Narrator. So, I am sending this message to the Windows team that design systems which are based on inclusivity especially for those of us who have some form of disability. The 'Ease of Access' function is another aid that guides the users to adjust the system to their specific needs. I am in the throes of theoretically building a bot that is personalised to my needs. I have not even started coding - still masses of learning to do. My project is an exciting challenge for me and Narrator is my partner in this venture. The AI School Platform is fantastic. Thanks to the Microsoft teams for developing inclusivity aids - great work guys 🤩😍💜
