Screen suddenly has orange tint
I turned on my computer this morning and it has a subdued orange tint and won't revert to normal colour. The night light is switched off and I changed no settings yesterday. I've restarted my computer and it's still the same. Any ideas? UPDATE: Solved. My problem was nothing to do with Windows 10 system settings, the HP Pavilion All-in-One has its own display settings. It had switched on the nightlight setting in an update. If you also have this problem, check your PC manufacturer's display settings too.
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.
Reinstalling Win 7
Good afternoon, I have a 10 year old Aspire 5741 laptop that I updated to win 10 that I wish to revert back to Win 7. I found the MS site for the recovery info to put to usb and provided the MS product code from the bottom of the machine which MS won't accept as per; "The product key you entered appears to be for software pre-installed by the device manufacturer. Please contact the device manufacturer for software recovery options" I'm 83 years of age and don't understand why this is necessary as I bought from a reputable retail chain here in New Zealand. I did go to the Acer site and after spending over 4 hours trying to make sense of it all I'm finally losing the will to live!! I'm desperately hoping you kind folks can help me out here please but I ask that you kindly bear in mind I'm very much a novice so nothing too technical please. Hoping you van help, kind regards....... ps. I do have recovery discs I made back when I bought the laptop but unsure what to do with them,

Login to Microsoft Account without entering Password

2 contradicting messages of updating from settings
When I checked my settings the first message says "You're up to date" but the message below says "You're currently running a version of Windows that's nearing the end of service. We recommend you update to the most recent version of Windows10 to get the latest features and security improvements." I have no idea what's going on.
Disappointed in Surface Laptop 3
Have a Surface Laptop 3 (1+ year old) which has the same problems especially Windows Edge browser frequently becoming dormant with a message " Edge is not responding". In addition system seems to degrade over time: sound, light takes longer to take effect, and MSN.com window gives me the same message and have to reboot to use. Can't really tell if it is Edge or the Computer. Called support multiple times. They run the fixit tool, reset the Windows Edge browser and I'm good for a while and the process begins again. I use to take it to the store but now that's gone. Support has gone from US to foreign country and frankly is getting less than satisfactory. I find this new support crew very unsure. They often have to check with someone else before they do anything. My impression is that Microsoft is degrading also, since the stores are gone. Hate to see that happening. Will not purchase a MS computer next time.
