How to move 40 GB's from the D drive to C drive that is ful
Hi, my name is Michael. I am a simple-minded auditor with shallow computer skills. I have a 2016 HP laptop with windows 10 Pro and 120 GB C drive that if full. Now I cannot update or add programs. I have a D drive with 650 GB's of free space. How can I move free formatted GB's from the D drive to the C drive. I found one you-tube video that used "shrinking volume" to move the GB's but the confusing instructions were incomplete!!! The step by step procedures on the video did not match the step by step windows procedures on my laptop. Can anyone help me make the right moves so I don't end-up in the deep end of the pool. Video procedures: Open File folder Select this PC C drive and right click Select computer then open Select Disk management right click Select D drive right click Select Shrink Volume open Enter number of MG.s to shrink Select shrink Now shows unallocated GB's But THIS IS WHERE I GET CONFUSED ABOUT HOW TO PROCEED OR IF THIS WILL ACTUALLY WORK ON MY LAPTOP. ANY ADIVCE WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED
PC won't play videos
My pc now will not play any MP4 files. I cannot figure out why. I tried several files, all end up with an error message: "Can't play. Choose something else to play. This item is in a format we don't support." The error number is 0xc1010103. Please advise. Thank you.
I am back...Hopefully
Hey there Windows Community. I was gone for some time, and this was due to a lot of personal issues, stress, and overall bad stuff. I came out to my parents as Bi-Sexual which led to a lot of problems, stress and sadness. That is pretty much the reason I was not able to be around as I was pretty much without my devices for a long time ( The reason being what I have told them ) I apologize for not being able to help and be around, but it is just hard to take that your own parents think you are disgusting just because you are your true self. Right now I doing pretty fine, as with the support of my friends I was able to stay away from getting into a depression state, as things were...bad. I do understand that this is not a community for sharing your issues, but I feel like I needed to explain what is going on. Do not worry! Right now I am just trying to ignore them as I am final on my decision and that my parents won't accept me like so is just...stupid. I think we are all equal no matter the race, sexuality or religion. People are people no matter what! I wish you all an amazing day, I can not say I will be that active as I am still dealing with a lot of problems, but I will try to. Thank you for the time spent to read this. Stay positive, stay safe, stay true to your self. Be your self! - Denis
can't see albums in the MS Photos App
I use the Microsoft Photos app from the store a great deal. I have lost the ability to see my albums in the photos app. They are in the web OneDrive and prior to last week they appeared when I wanted to see "all" in the photos app. This enables the user to add photos to albums and then have it uploaded to OneDrive. I'm of the opinion that installing a Windows 10 S0H2 update, KB5001330 may have caused this problem, when I installed it on 4/14/2021. At the same time I've lost the ability to see photo albums in the Desktop OneDrive app. I know the photos app is closely integrated with OneDrive and I suspect something has caused the two apps to not be in sync. Are others who use these apps experiencing the same problems? Does anyone have an idea of what I can do to get the photos app and the Desktop OneDrive app working properly? Ken84

Do you find yourself talking directly to your computer? 🤨
I have a tendency to talk to my computer. May sound a bit daft! 🤨 If I am under pressure for whatever reason, or I am searching for a reference and cannot find it, I talk AT my computer - most likely with exasperation that anything else; not that this helps me to find the resource any quicker though. If I have the radio on in the background and the news is being broadcasted, I most definitely voice my opinion on the subject matter to my computer (which thankfully remains silent - unless Narrator is switched on). 😲 Then that becomes a whole different ball game if I am working on a Word document. 🤣 Has being on lockdown changed your behaviour towards your computer? If we have a more extended lockdown and have to work from home for a prolonged period of time, will this influence/change our working behaviours? Your PoV please 😀 Keep well.

One area that needs to be reviewed is the registry. Few if any software uninstallers remove their registry entries. I accept a few have no effect on loading time, but after many trial installs, it all builds up. This also includes empty folders that just add to clutter. Can Microsoft produce software that can get rid of this rubbish?
alternate email is incorrect and needs to be changed
Hello, I am trying to change my alternate email for my Microsoft account as it was put in incorrectly. So when I am asked for the alternate it gives me the address they are wanting to send it to, however it is incorrect and I will never receive that information
Win. 10 disk cleanup: How to delete temporary files
hi all: I wonder why is it that when it gets to like the 7th or 8th day, especially day 7, going to Storage and Temporary Files, I noticed the temporary files is there. It doesn't happen from day 1 to day 6. I have to clean it up. But it still appears in disk cleanup. I actually delete temporary files from manually before going to Storage. I thought it could be a bug in Windows 10. Wondering under temporary files, why it will not state 0 bytes in disk cleanup. For mine, it will state 2.07 MB. For some of you, it might state GB. I searched online and found a way for the temporary files to state 0 bytes in disk cleanup. Here are the steps: reminder, the following steps involve registry and do not modify other things, as it might cause serious issues with your device. 1. Please type reg under search and it will show Registry editor. Please click on run as administrator. 2. Then, go to, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\VolumeCaches\Temporary Files 3. In the right-pane, double-click LastAccess. 4. Set the value data for LastAccess to 10. That is what I did for mine. After you are finished and go back to Storage and Temporary Files or the disk cleanup, you will notice under temporary files, it will state 0 bytes. A reminder: Even though it might state like 2.07 MB under temporary files, but when you actually delete the files manually, it will have no affect at all. You don't lose disk space because of it. Hope this helps.
