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.
Generic Vs OEM Display Driver? Which one is better?
Hi there, As we know driver software is the essential part of our windows 10 os. And windows developer team countineous try to improve this for better experienc. I noticed that most of the important driver software update automatically vai windows 10 updater. But sometimes I noticed few of driver update still delayed. For example: I am using an intel display driver and I installed intel driver support and assistance app for updating my driver manually. So recently I noticed an display driver update pop out, so usually I update it through intel driver support and assist. But updating time I noticed it's a generic display driver and it overright my OEM customised display driver. So after carefully i sucessfully install it. But after that I didn't find any issue or missing any features. So my doubts is which one is better an OEM driver or Generic display driver?

introduction, a few tech queries even took to Comp. GEEKS.
Good evening...my name is Juleigh..I've had enough trying to simply get my headphones to WORK with my Laptop - an HP Pavillion Gaming. I DO NOT GAME. I bought this as a great discount through my company, so that I could have something decent yet not $1K to start out. My ONLY complaint is I am having a single challenge with my JLAB Headphones, the sound coming into my headphones and not from the computer. I had this at Geeksquad three weeks ago because I tripped over the cord, totally annihilated the hard drive. They put in a Solid State Hard Drive, they swore best one they had. SO, since then, my headers do not work. The screen says my phones re not plugged in. I had NEVER had to have them "plugged in" before..and then the phones are synced with my Cell as well. I've invested now, $850 into this. I'm googling my face off trying to explain this ..what I would deem simple, alas - nobody finds the solution easy, but then, nobody has an answer. I get the same stupid, woman in suit, (we'll give her a good reason to buy here..)..kind of thing..tired of it AND with this Corona issue going on, I'm about to jap slap these pseudo computer techies. Does ANYONE have ANY advice for me? I'm just not quite in the financial position to purchase another computer just yet, so I truly need this baby. Heck, it's just a year old, we bought the extra warranty! Forgive me for spewing out my mood..I'm now behind in my goals for the week..my clients need me and I need them...So, my new fellow Microsoft Community Members, ANYONE have any suggest. So, Community, any help, any thoughts? Any guidance that anyone is willing to take a bit of time to step in? Truly, I am a grateful, blessed gurl...many thanks, Juleigh Anne

Being an I.D.10T
Well, I was being an I.D.10T the other day and created a problem that led me to create other problems, when I realized that this was really a case where Occam's Razor should apply. So after I realized that, and that the P.I.C.N.I.C., I took a break, cursed Microsoft and felt a whole lot better. Oh , Ok. the problem! I was trying to readjust my Microsoft Launcher for Android, when I noticed that things were not where they were supposed to be, and the setting were all out of whack. This was after an update. (Refer to the start of this article please) After a while I put on the Deep sea diving apparatus and dove in, only to find, that only did I have my original MS Launcher Beta, but now I also had the MS Launch Preview from the Store, and they were not playing like good neighbors should! All I could do at that point was to sit back, question how that could happen, shake my head, and call myself every stupid name I could think of, and yea, some of those would surely get me booted from this site! Lesson learned. Aren't I the one that tells everyone to read before installing, and follow closely? Yeppers, that would be your truly.... If we can't laugh at ourselves every once in a while, then what's the point.... Have a fun and safe day all. Remember read and follow the directions carefully before installing any software and or update! And now on to take my hypertension medication! - Go figure.....
Windows product key verification
Hi there, I have a laptop that came with Windows 10 Pro. I use my pc for work, the company added a work user as the admin on my PC. When I leave the company they will remove that user and its information, which is fine. The problem comes in that I once this has been done I want to do a PC restore, so that I am sure that any permissions or restrictions etc they've put on are removed. What I'm worried about is that I don't know if the laptop originally came with Windows 10 Pro or whether the supplier simply upgraded it to Pro. I have found my product key using the CMD function, but I was wondering if there is any way I can verify that it is in fact a Pro license and not a Home license. Please assist if possible on how/where I can verify this.
