Microphone in Teams
Has anyone else suddenly had their microphone stop working in teams on their laptop? It works when in anything else, just no-one can hear me in Team calls. All the settings are set to allow access, and nothing's changed from when i used it the day before. I've looked at the support pages but have already tried any suggestions there. thanks, Susan
How Do You Learn About Windows 10 Best?
Hello all, I have a genuine question that has no right or wrong answer. How would you learn to use your computer better? It doesn't matter the device, the operating system, or how long you've had it. Simply put, everyone learns differently and at their own pace, what format or style of learning works best for you? I'm a Microsoft trainer and have been providing computer training at all levels for years. As much as I love the job security of being needed... the ultimate goal is to make Windows 10 easy to use and navigate without support. So, do you learn best from step-by-step instructions in a clickable demo?Perhaps that's too time consuming and you'd prefer a quick notification with basic instructions? Do we appreciate links to support pages or pop-up instructions? Has the time finally come to bring back everyone's favorite digital assistant Clippy? What do you perceive as helpful versus intrusive? So please, take a second to sound off and thank you for your feedback!
Pressing ALT + F4 closes the Command Prompt window
If you press ALT + F4 in a Command Prompt window, it closes. This is the same as clicking the X button or typing exit and pressing ENTER. Pressing ALT + F4 to close Command Prompt only works on Windows 10.
Closing Windows in Edge and Canary Edge
After recent updates, it seems that it often takes multiple clicks on the "X" to close a tab. This occurs even when time is taken to place cursor in center of "X".
Frequent Buffering of Audio Streaming in Browser Window
Just bought a new Dell Windows 10 desktop. I often open a browser tab for a radio station and select "listen live" to start audio streaming. If the streaming occurs in a new browser tab, the stream will stop every 10 minutes or so and then start up again. Even more annoying, if several other browser tabs with streaming are open, but not steaming, all the audio streams start playing simultaneously! I have to then shut down the unwanted streams. Interestingly, if the audio is streaming in the background, whatever window I'm working with when this happens also stops and indicates "no internet." I have 100Mbs Fios so it's not a bandwidth issue and I do this all the time in the Windows 7 computer with no issue. So it is a Windows 10 problem. This problem does not occur if the streaming occurs in a new window and NOT in a new browser tab. Is there a buffering problem in Windows 10? How do I fix this? Thanks in advance.
