Windows Maps - Now with Tom-Tom? - How's that working out ?
I've ranted about the problems with Microsoft Maps, till I'm just about blue in the face. Yes, I still use it on my laptop, and Yes I've sent the notations to Microsoft on numerous occasions. I swear that unless I can come back after the switch to Tom-Tom, and praise them for a job well done, this will be my last Maps post. Yesterday 6/1 in a post on MS Power Users they noted that Microsoft was switching map data providers, from HERE, to Tom-Tom. I gave up using HERE on my Android phone, for several reasons, but the biggest was that the maps here in the desert S.W. were out of date. Google had the Loop 202 and the Ed Pastor Freeway, that has been open since December of 201 updated within a week of its completion. As of this morning it still isn't updated on either the HERE WE GO website, or Microsoft maps. https://mspoweruser.com/microsoft-bing-maps-switching-tomtom/ I really can't believe that Microsoft is going to use this on Azure? Thanks for letting rant! Stay Safe out there!
Where's the Classic Start Menu?
Remember the classic Start Menu on Windows 95 and up to Windows Vista? On Windows 7 and later, the classic Start Menu is no longer available. Only the new Start Menu can be used to run programs, find documents and settings, pin programs, and use system tools. The classic Start Menu had menus: Programs Favourites (only available on Windows 98 and up to Windows Vista) Documents Settings Help Run Suspend (only available on Windows 95-based computers with power management support) Log off... (only available on Windows 98 and up to Windows Vista) Shut Down Both Windows XP and Windows Vista allowed you to use the classic Start Menu instead of the new Start Menu.
Every browser is lagging in my win 10 p c.
Hi.. This is Rajiv. I am having a serious issue here while using any browser in my windows 10 p c. Wheather it's Google Chrome which I used to prefer, Edge or Firefox. Every browser is showing a time delay of almost 30 seconds or even more to show up what I type there on search box or on my blog. Because i don't have any technical knowledge so I tried out on help forums like windows, Google, or internet and done a lot of steps to set up this problem like clearing cache and cookies, resetting to default settings, clearing history, updating chrome, uninstalling chrome, Firefox and reinstalling it. Deep disc cleanup, cleaning up even unnecessary system files, and last formatting window and updating it again. I cleaned up even every single app which I installed from internet and even files also. Now my p c is having only default files and apps which came with windows only. Even then I am having this issue and not able to use my p c for any work at all. I even tried a tech expert for this problem but even then nothing is working till now. Please help me in this issue. It will be a great favour to me. Thanks for your concern. Have a good day ahead

In-place Upgrade of Win. 10 vs. re-installation of Win. 10
Your device might run into an issue or issues like in Windows 10 functionality and the In-Place Upgrade sometimes is the most reliable and quickest way to fix the Windows 10 malfunctions. Here are the options you can choose to fix issues & the differences between the In-place Upgrade of Win. 10 vs. re-installation of Win. 10. 1st option) The best quickest option but one that might take a while is called an In-place Upgrade of Windows 10. Here is the link on how to perform one. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-windows_install/how-to-perform-an-in-place-upgrade-with-windows-10/7f0b236e-3c6c-4913-9691-c4baa2a6190a Here are two good things about an In-place Upgrade: a) it re-install Windows 10 to the current one b) you can choose to keep files, folders, apps, etc. ( that means you will not loose anything after the In-Place Upgrade is finished) 2nd option) re-install or clean install Windows 10: This method is faster than an In-place Upgrade but all your apps, drivers, updates, etc. gets erased. (reminder: backup every files, folders, etc. before performing this. Apps will have to be reinstalled.) This let's your device start fresh. You can choose to backup folders, files, etc. to the D drive, if you choose not to erase the D drive during the re-install of Windows 10. Here is the link on how to perform re-installation of Windows 10. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-windows_install/clean-install-windows-10/1c426bdf-79b1-4d42-be93-17378d93e587 Hope the info. helps.
Ransomware blocking legit applications
Has any one else ran into the problem where a legitimate app is being blocked from installing by Windows. How about constant reminders from Windows apps being blocked from controlled folder access? Did you find a solution, or did you wait for it to reside. My VPN app just got an update, then Microsoft started blocking me from installing it, at all. I've paid for this service, and there is no reason it should be blocked, I'm at a loss as to why, or how to fix. I have allowed everything that was blocked, and Microsoft still blocked the .tmp file to install. If this is the case, Microsoft owes me a refund for this month.
in place upgrade buggy?
hi, I tried an in place upgrade on my device but got a message stating: You can't keep Windows settings, personal files and apps your current version of Windows might be installed in an unsupported directory. Tried some method of fix but to no avail. Anyone facing the issue? I have read from here https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-windows_install/windows-10-repair-upgrade-not-working/4551adb8-0f07-4ec5-ace0-00c59a8b11be that it could be a bug. Can someone confirm or let Microsoft know? By the way, for my other post, https://community.windows.com/en-us/conversations/in-place-upgrade-of-win-10-vs-re-installation-of-win-10/98cba04d-f266-4f43-b6e9-a3a734dac0c8 it shows 3 responses, but when I went to see all conversations, it only state 2. Bug there?

I'm just sharing my experience. Hoping your suggestion to correct or improve the steps based on your experience, so I can learn much from this community for the step / tips/ trick that I don't know. Usually this happened on built-in camera. I will take the following steps and stop the next steps if problem has solved: 1) Sign out from current account -> restart -> sign in with administrator account. 2) Update BIOS, then camera driver, then camera firmware if suggested and/or available from laptop manufacturer. 3) Update Win 10 to the latest version including all pending updates -> restart computer. 4) Troubleshoot Windows Store Apps. Find it by typing "troubleshoot" in windows search. 5) Check the camera privacy setting, whether it's blocked. Find it by typing "privacy settings" in search. 6) Reset Camera app. Find it by typing "apps & features" in search -> Advanced options -> Reset. 7) Check camera device compatibility in Device Manager -> right-click camera device -> Property -> Driver -> click Driver Details. If there is stream.sys in the list, then I will suggest my client to replace the camera device with a new one or use external camera. If not, it might be compatible with win 10. 8) Edit windows registry. Sometime can fix the problem. WARNING : please readers DO NOT do this if not familiar. Do it with your own risk. 8.a. Backup and save current registry setting. 8.b. Edit registry at: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> WOW6432Node -> Microsoft -> Windows Media Foundation. On the right pane of the Registry Editor of Windows Media Foundation, create the new DWORD (32-bit) Value -> enter EnableFrameServerMode (without space) as the title for the new DWORD -> double-click EnableFrameServerMode -> Input 0 (zero) for Value data -> OK -> Restart. If any things is missing or there is any other tips that I don't know, please let me know.
