Results for: computer screen
Prior to 2004, I used a Windows-based computer. I was unhappy with Windows because of constant "blue screens of death", hackers planting viruses, etc...When I became a truck driver in 2004, I mainly used a mobile phone and started using Google products. I like their products and they all work seamlessly with each other. Now, I am a full-time Care-Provider for my mother and just purchased a new computer with Windows 10 Pro installed. I decided to give Microsoft apps a try once again because I do like their products. On my PC there are no problems, but on my Android phone, I just can't seem to get Cortana to work hands-free, and with certain apps. I do understand that there is a war between Microsoft, Apple, Google and any other companies that are out there, but, the customer (that would be you and I) should be able to use whatever Assistant we choose to work with any apps that we like and use. Case in point: the Google Assistant comes on automatically when I say "OK Google" (hands-free), and I can set a timer, ask about the weather, play my favorite music in the Google Play app, etc....no problem....Today I downloaded Cortana to work with all my apps and I cannot even get it to turn on without tapping the microphone button. I made it my default app, turned on all the permissions, etc...and I am discouraged with Microsoft again. I haven't given up yet, but I had to switch back to the Google Assistant just so I can do the things I need to do hands-free, which comes with a cost of not being able to use some of the Microsoft apps unless done manually. I like Microsoft's To-Do List, but Google Assistant will only open Google's Task app. It just defeats the whole purpose of downloading all of Microsoft's apps if I can't use everything seamlessly. I use Amazon Music now, and neither Assistant will open it. I would really like to use whatever Assistant I choose with the default apps that I select. Now, am I doing something wrong or does this sound about right?

My friend needs help.
Hello there Windows Community! My friend can not log in to Windows 10, as it just says ''Something Happened and your PIN is not available'' He can not even do a computer reset as it just failed, he can not also access safe mode, he can not do anything! All of this happened because he tried to go into safe mode! He can not even reset the PC, he is just locked. Any ideas of fixing this without resetting the PC from an external media drive? He is extremely angry at Windows right now, and I do not even know how to help, as I just can not when he can not even access safe mode! All of this kind of sounds to me as a broken or corrupted Windows file or registry but I do not know. All help is appreciated!
Reminisce the DOS Command
I'm just reminisce the days when DOS commands were required to be learned in order to operate a computer. Even though it's old school, the DOS commands are still valid and are provided via the Command Prompt window until Windows 10. There are a lot of powerful and useful commands in Command Prompt. Some that I still use often are: ping and tracert. See this video to know more : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJV-GBZ6PeM&feature=youtu.be To see the syntax for help just add: /? ping /? or tracert /? Those were the days, my friend. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QptZ8tYZAkE Do you still love the old school days?

Best place for the taskbar?!
So I've had this battle with my friends and colleagues often, where is the best place to put your task bar? On the bottom? On the side? Maybe up at the top! I honestly think on the right side is most productive for me! Take a look : http://tinypic.com/r/2n99f0m/9 Share where you place your taskbar!
Windows Media Player organizing
I have a nice collection of music in my library which I have taken the time to make sure the artists and albums are in order, but every time my computer gets an upgrade there are a number of entries revert to the unknown category. Then I have to sort through and reorganize them. Is there any option where I can save the changes I've made so I can avoid the constant editing?
After windows update, Auto repair shows on bootup
so there's an automatic update downloaded on my laptop, specifically the 2020-12 cumulative update for windows 10 version 2004 for x86-based systems (KB4592438). I shut down my laptop, and it was automatically updated. Later i opened the laptop, It shows on boot screen 'Preparing Automatic Repair' i waited and it shows that it failed, i restarted the system but it is still the same (it failed). I searched on the net on the things that i can do, I treied startup repair and some things on Command prompt, yet i didn't work. then I did the system restore thing, waited an hour then my pc booted up fine. once im inside the system, it shows that some apps are not working (its fine cause they are just bloatwares), but the update was prompted again to the laptop. I saw that it was already downloaded again (since i am not pausing updates) and just waiting for computer to restart ('pending restart'). I am now scared to shut down or restart the laptop because i might not be able to fix the problem if it happens again. Can you give me some tips on what to do, is there any problem with this update? UPDATE: I clicked restart and update. The pc restarted, but the windows update is still in there. The same 2020-12 update. I paused now the update (the 7 day option) and shut down the laptop. I hope it will be okay cause i badly need it to work.

Problem logging in to one particular website
I login to my AWS account daily for my organization tasks and lately I am facing a weird behaviour. When I click on the link to open the Site, it auto logs in to my account and given an error. Initially I tried different browsers and the Incognito window but still gave the same error. Usually in incognito it is supposed to ask my Office credentials to login, but it would auto login and throw an error. I reached out to my IT support and they cleared the cache, cookies, temp files prefetch (a proper computer clean up) but I still got the error. We then tried to create a new windows profile and try there, but the issue remained the same. My AWS access is perfectly fine, as when I login to my colleague`s laptop, I am able to login and see my account. Now the advise I got from IT is to reinstall the OS which i really do not want! I would really appreciate if someone could suggest a fix to it! Thank You.
