Indexer Diagnost. I could love it, I don't, at least not yet
𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗱𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗸 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗻𝗲𝘄 𝗶𝗻𝗱𝗲𝘅𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗼𝗼𝗹? If you're not familiar with the new indexer tool, it's available as a beta in store. I was very excited when Indexer Diagnostics was launched. I'm sure it will be very useful. I find the information provided in the app to be confusing. Take a look at this screenshot: (link is to my SharePoint) https://netorgft5693133-my.sharepoint.com/:i:/g/personal/loke_llh2019_no/ERCes9s_noZIv2643-KSMW4BGTJY5gPiqJd_rUMHK4qgKQ?e=klw2DK This is how I read the information: 𝙄𝙣𝙘𝙡𝙪𝙙𝙚𝙙 𝙥𝙖𝙩𝙝𝙨: 𝘾:\𝙪𝙨𝙚𝙧𝙨 I read: We index everything in users and subfolders 𝙀𝙭𝙘𝙡𝙪𝙙𝙚𝙙 𝙥𝙖𝙩𝙝𝙨: 𝙘:\𝙪𝙨𝙚𝙧𝙨/𝙡𝙤𝙠𝙚 Loke is my user. Now I read; We index everything except my user. 𝙀𝙭𝙘𝙡𝙪𝙙𝙚𝙙 𝙥𝙖𝙩𝙝𝙨: 𝙘:\𝙬𝙞𝙣𝙙𝙤𝙬𝙨 I asked two friends how they read it: We don't index anything from Windows. I'm an above-average user, but the information in "search root" doesn't mean much to me: https://netorgft5693133-my.sharepoint.com/:i:/g/personal/loke_llh2019_no/EQSz50lPkmBLodprerncPjAB6L4PLsqdMb7NeJGZ3BSIWw?e=M9cOFr MS survey on this page asks the question: 5. I can complete a complex computer-based task (e.g., setting up a printer or wi-fi) My personal opinion is setting up hardware or connect WI-FI is a minimum of knowledge. How can MS think users will understand how to use the Indexer tool and at the same time consider setting up a printer is complex? Is it just me? What do you guys think?
"The device is currently in use"
I try to safely eject my USB device and get the message "The device is currently in use. Close any programs or windows that might be using the device, and then try again." I get this message 99% of the time - even when no applications or windows are open. Why is this happening? Is there a way to get around this? I never get this message at work or school, unless the USB device is actually in use. I do log in as a standard, non-administrator user. I only elevate to administrator privileges when necessary like installing applications (I also only temporarily elevate privileges; I never log on as an administrator). So when I get the "The device is currently is use." message, I right-click on start button and click Disk Management. I know that I can safely remove the device by going into Disk Management and taking the device offline. However, I cannot elevate to administrator privileges to get into Disk Management. I get the following message: "You are logged on as a standard user. You can view device settings in Device Manager, but you must be logged on as an administrator to make changes." I don't want to log on as an administrator, but I do want to temporarily elevate to administrator privileges to take the device offline. Is there a way to do this? When I'm logged on as standard user and want to install an application, I get prompted for an administrator password. I want the same thing to happen when I go to Device Manager and other areas that require administrator rights.
Preventing Shut Down From the Sign-in Screen
In order to prevent users from using the sign-in screen to shut down whether users are signed in or not, you can use Local Security Policy or the REG command. Here's how: Method 1: Local Security Policy NOTE: This method only applies to Windows 10 Pro. 1. Press WINDOWS LOGO + R. 2. Type "secpol.msc" (without the quotes) and press ENTER. 3. Double-click Local Policies. 4. Click Security Options. 5. Scroll down until you see Shutdown: Allow system to be shut down without having to log on and double-click it. 6. Click Disabled and click OK. Method 2: The REG command WARNING: Incorrectly using the registry editing tool can cause serious, system-wide problems that may require you to reinstall Windows 10 to correct them. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the incorrect use of the registry editing tool can be solved. Use this tool at your own risk. 1. Press WINDOWS LOGO + R. 2. Type "cmd" (without the quotes) and press CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER. 3. Provide confirmation or type in the password if you see the User Account Control dialog box. 4. Type REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v shutdownwithoutlogon /t REG_DWORD /d 1 and press ENTER. 5. Type EXIT and then press ENTER. Now, whenever you press WINDOWS LOGO + L or you're not signed in yet, the Power icon that normally appears at the bottom-right corner of the screen will not be seen.
I want to let you know what happened because it’s the first time in all my 30+ years IT life. I used to have two volumes/partitions, C: for Windows OS and E: for my data. Thursday evening I started Windows Update (only for last November 2019 cumulative update, I update very often) and shut down when finished. On Friday morning when I booted up the system I saw the Windows nice landscape photo but when I tried to login the password box was not shown, no way to login. I tried ALL possible paths (safe mode, cmd, etc.). You know what I found? Using diskpart from cmd I found a single volume/partition that was the merge of my C: and my E: data !!! dir command was showing all my C and E directories and files together in one single volume/partintion! Windows was corrupted somehow, no gpt fix, efi rebuild was successful. My SD with my Windows 10 File History was not accessible (and useless since the OS itself was corrupted). All my data were there, there was no encryption so, without any login, I saved all my data on a usb hdd with robocopy (this is very bad on a security perspective, It’s enough to have a usb stick and some time with a pc available, e.g. lunch break, and you can stole the whole data from it, easy, no password, no hack. Either Bitlocker or, even better, a 3rd parties encryption after UEFI layer is recommended. But this time I was happy I did't have bitlocker). The only solution to bring back to work the laptop was to boot from the Recovery Drive (lucky I did and had) and then restore a full image (lucky I did and had) with the old Windows 7 Backup Tool and finally robocopy back all my data (then upgrade again but not to the latest cumulative, better to wait a bit, a fix might come, then backup again). One additional note, since during the restore process I chose not to format all partitions from scratch, now I have one single partition C: with both OS and Data, I’m leaving Windows decision be the final one on how my volumes have to be on my laptop 😊
How can I see what happened to my computer while I was away?
Can event log be deleted in Windows 10? Hi, I was away from my computer for approx. an hour and want to understand what I can do to ensure nothing was done with my computer while I was away. NB: The machine would have been password protected at the time and locked. My first point of call was running an event log "eventvwr.msc". I have two questions: 1. Can system login be deleted? If so, is there something I can do to show it was deleted? 2. What suggestions are out there for checking anything was done suring this period? I really appreciate your thoughts and comments.

I have a DELL Inspiron desk computer w/Windows 10. No problems until this morning when I tried to sign on. Power came on and screen monitor came on with wallpaper and date in left corner. All was normal. Suddenly, the screen BLURRED and I could not sign on. In the bottom right corner are 3 symbols: INTERNET, EASE OF ACCESS, POWER. I have turned the computer off, then back on ... same thing is happening. Monitor screen comes on as normal, but seconds later it BLURS and I am not able to sign on. Can anyone help me?

Passwords is highlighted with the black box. when you select passwords, you will be able to view all of the passwords saved to that profile. Saved passwords on your account. Alternatively, you can visit your passwords using this link: edge://settings/passwords . Viewing and/or deleting stored passwords
Passwords that are too weak of course invite brute-force attacks. However, we find that relatively weak passwords, about 20 bits or so, are sufficient to make brute-force attacks on a single account unrealistic so long as a “three strikes” type rule is in place.
Download this app from Microsoft Store for Windows 10 Mobile, Windows Phone 8.1, Windows Phone 8. See screenshots, read the latest customer reviews, and compare ratings for Passwords.
If you forgot your Wi-Fi network password, you can find it if you have another Windows PC already connected to your Wi-Fi network. After you find your password, you can use it on another PC or device to connect to your Wi-Fi network.
