Results for: Windows Settings
I am using a Lenova desktop at home with the latest Windows versions. I use Windows Defender. When I check the status everything is okay except the virus protection. It has an x and says my virus protection is being handled by me company. This is a personal computer and is no way affiliated with a company. How do I enable virus protection? Thanks Stan
Last update changed DOWNLOADS from Library to List! HELP!
On both my laptop and my PC, after a recent automatic update, my DOWNLOADS folder no longer appears as a Library where I can select the picture I need based on my past configurations in folders followed by individual pictures as I myself named them! Now, the folder appears only as a vertical configuration of my most recently-downloaded or used pictures! I'm unable to navigate, to choose photos I have NOT used recently! This is ridiculous! (My PICTURES folder appears unchanged on my PC, though I think it too is now a vertical "list" on my laptop.) PLEASE SUGGEST A WAY I CAN REVERT TO THE PREVIOUS DEFAULT CONFIGURATION! So far, nothing I've done has remedied this situation! THANK YOU!
Older PC games
I haven't been able to play C & C Generals since I switched to Windows 10 about 3 years ago. It loads from the CD just fine but when I click on the .exe file to start a game nothing happens. From what I've read on the internet there is some type of compatibility issue with Windows 10. I have tried at least a half dozen workarounds but nothing ever works. Very frustrating. Probably an easy fix for the Windows 10 programmers.
Cannot Completely Disable Password on Wakeup
I have tried every solution everywhere on the internet to make it so windows NEVER asks for my password, and although it is, in theory, NOT supposed to ask for my password anymore, ever, it still does in *one* circumstance. I have changed the settings so it is not to require a password after waking from sleep, and that works in every instance except for when the computer sleeps because I closed the laptop lid. If it goes to sleep just from sitting without being used for a while and I start it up again, it does not ask for a password, even if it’s been days or longer. But if I close the lid and then start it up again even just a moment later, it requires a password. I have stopped it from asking a password after starting from a shutdown or a restart, and I have turned it off after starting from sleep in all other cases, but for some reason, disabling password after wakeup does not work when sleep was because of closing the laptop lid. What am I doing wrong? I’ve tried all the different settings options I could find, then I googled and found another one or two, which fixed the last of my problems, except this one. I do not want to EVER have to enter a password. All I use my Windows laptop for is games that I can’t get on my Mac, because I hate windows, but there are some games I really like that require it. I grew up using Windows, so I’m very familiar with it, and I can generally fix anything with it that crops up without needing to go to anyone for help, but this is one thing I just can’t fix. On Mac, you only have to change one or two things to never have to enter a password again except for major updates or downloads, and all the settings are easy to find. On windows, I have had to change many more things, and I’ve really had to dig for the settings to change, and I am STILL having issues. Can someone PLEASE tell me what I’m missing?

Screensavers getting changed!
One of my computers has a selection of screensavers and I can select which one I want to use. So annoying, that computer will ON ITS OWN change it's screensaver to another from the selection and I would not want it to be viewed in the environment where that computer lives. That picture comes from the other computer and was never saved to the one where it is getting shown. Why does this happen? How can I stop it happening?

Microsoft wirelesss display adapter
I have used it for a few years with only one problem and support fixed this problem. It happened with a Windows 10 update. Support fixed the issue for me and now I am having the same problem since KB4524570. All support did was disable my firewall and it connected.
