I can't add any Androids Bluetooth device to play games.
Hello, I can't find any android phones Bluetooth in the add a device option. Even I can't find the setting of my PC's Bluetooth. I need to know whether my PC's Bluetooth is discover-able or not to the other devices. Anyways, my problem is I can't find any Bluetooth device in my PC. It's not showing any device name, though my androids Bluetooth is already on and connectable to other PC. How can I connect to my androids Bluetooth to this PC? How can I add a device to my PC's Bluetooth? How can I understand my PC's Bluetooth is discover-able to other devices or not? Thank You
Do you sync across all of your devices?
Owning a desktop, laptop, tablet and phone, my primary device is my desktop pc with 27" monitor. I have VPN and extra security in addition to Defender on the pc. Other devices are casual use, not used each day. Is it necessary to sync? Questioning because I don't have extra security on the other devices.
Why I can't find Windows as comfortable to use as Linux
I use Windows only for some games, and if Windows 10 had more features, I could use it on daily basis, but at the moment it is missing a few very important features. First problem is filesystem support. Windows 10 supports only very few different filesystems, which means I can't access devices like my Raspberry Pi's SD card, and also NTFS isn't actually very good filesystem. Second thing is, I can't customize Windows 10 enough. (PLEASE tell me if any of following features exist, I would love to use them!) I would like to set custom shortcuts for moving/managing windows, and I would love to have at least partly similar behavior as tiling window managers on Linux have, by which I mean that by default, program would open full-sized (not fullscreen though), but if I open another program, it would automatically split the windows. Also, I find it actually harder to search programs from internet, and then download an installer, then run it to get the program installed, and then being able to use it. On Linux (I use Arch Linux btw.) there is a thing called package management, so with package manger I can search for programs and install them straight away, and then instantly being able to use them. Also through package manager I can update all my packages = whole operating system and all programs (which are installed via package management). Also I can't do as much stuff on Windows CMD or powershell as I can in Linux terminal, and especially on Arch I like that I've hand-picked each part of system, so I know what it can do, and what it contains. And in Linux terminal, with sudo (or root user) I have the rights over all the operating system. I understand that some of these will never be accomplished in Windows, but I hope that at least some of these will be picked up as an actual suggestions. If I had to select three things to include from these, they would be package management, filesystem support and waaayy more customization options.
SFC scan found corrupt files and has repaired them
hi there: I found a weird issue. This happened since 1903. I don't know if anyone of you has faced it or just me but will show you. It is regards to the sfc scan. When did the scan, the result will state: Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them. Now, I use the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command to fix it. Meaning, to get the sfc scan to say: Windows Resource Protection found no integrity violations. Maybe when I shut down the device and restart the device later or use it the next day and do the sfc /scannow, it will say: Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them. I think there is a bug in the scan. 1st, when my device does not have issues, it should not say, Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them. 2nd, when the results states: Windows Resource Protection found no integrity violations, it should stay that way, unless there are really corrupt files and has been repaired. Can someone let the team know about it?

Trouble getting Android and ios devices to work on windows.
Trouble getting Android and ios devices to work on windows. I don´t know what it is on my PC (Defender/Netrwork) but i use FL Studio and they have a free app to both Android and ios devices but windows give full acces for few seconds and then i loose contact again. I even tried to use a wireless dongle for some had a idea about wireless devices should be more easy to obtain the connection between win10 and Smartphones or tablets. I can´t find anywhere i can disable Windows Firewall and i think there is a lot of changes there does it impossible to get it to work probber. My antivirus has to sub-apps set to alow working thru its firewall and then it must be something else there keep disconnecting me. How do i get this problem analyzed to the bootom so i can have a wireless device connected to my software. Any help would be nice.
Windows Audio Endpoint Builder & Audio Device Trouble
Does anyone else have huge RAM memory and CPU "Very High" activity in Win 10 now? I am talking about the above process (Audio Device is under heading "Net Service").......which you can see using Task Manager. So just using my computer normally, while running this Microsoft Community , or when running a game such as Java Minecraft........I am seeing anywhere from 200 megabytes to 3 gigabytes of RAM usage and CPU usage of 20% to 60% of CPU usage. Right NOW as I am typing Task Manager says I am using 900 mb memory in Endpoint Builder and 806 mb in Audio Device (48% Memory)- 54% CPU usage in Endpoint Builder and Audio Device. This seems unbelievably over the top usage on my 16 gig Ram, AMD-FX6300 cpu machine. I AM NOT LISTENING TO AUDIO.....I AM NOT TALKING IN MS TEAM, I am only typing this post in Microsoft Community.. Whilst playing Jave Minecraft I have had the game crash- checking Audio Endpoint and Audio Device I see them running 90% of Memory and 88% of Audio Device.... What other tasks is the Audio Device doing? Is it running some other type of operation that is unstated? Thanks for any comments....if you check the web you will find many other people talking about the same subject!
