Shutting down, restarting, or hibernating your PC
To shut down your PC: > Click Start, click the Power button, and then click Shut down. To restart your PC: > Click Start, click the Power button, and then click Restart. To put your PC to sleep: > Click Start, click the Power button, and then click Sleep. To hibernate your PC: > Click Start, click the Power button, and then click Hibernate. Notes and Tips: - If you enable Hybrid Sleep before putting your PC to sleep, it writes information to a disk, and then turns it off. If a power loss occurs, turning your PC back on will restore information that was written to a disk before it was put to sleep. - For fast start-up to work, your PC must have hibernation enabled. Check with Power Options in Control Panel. - You can also right-click Start and then point to Shut down or sign out. - You can use Power Options in Control Panel to configure your PC's power button or keyboard's sleep button to do other things like shutting down your PC or putting it to sleep. - If you have a laptop, it'll hibernate itself automatically after it's been to sleep for amount of time that you set in Power Options, found in Control Panel or Settings. - If your PC uses InstantGo (also known as Connected Standby), its screen will turn itself off if not used for a long time and continue performing background tasks like updating apps and syncing emails. There's no need to shut down your InstantGo-compatible PC, but if you wish to, hold the power button for four or five seconds, and then slide down from the top of the screen to shut down. - If any pending updates need to restart your PC, clicking Shut Down from the Power icon on the Start menu will configure updates in a first phase, restart your PC, configure updates again in a last phase, and then turn your PC off. - Some devices like keyboard and mouse may wake your PC up from sleep. To put a stop to this, go to Device Manager and check whatever device will wake your PC up from sleep.
MS Edge is not reacting
The last days, when I'm in a program, it blocks always, and I get the message 'MS Edge is not reacting. Then I click on 'close'where it's said, we'll transfer the info to Microsoft. But with what purpose ,because I get no reaction of Microsoft at all. This all came up after their last update.
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.

Windows Defender anti-virus
Hi all - 1st time posting, I think. On my new HP computer - Windows 10 - I confirmed that Windows Defender anti-virus is turned on, and uninstalled McAfee trial that came with the computer, as I've read was advised to prevent a Trojan virus sneaking inbetween the 2 protections. TWO QUESTIONS: (1) Is Windows Defender all that should be required, for a casual-use, at-home pc, or do users get a second anti-virus program to back it up? and (2) My (paid) McAfee subscription ran out on my OLD (now only occasionally used) Windows 10 PC. Is there anyway a virus could get into that computer, and transfer over to my NEW pc, since the devises are apparently synced? TIA!
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
