Do You Remember the old Shutdown?
Long Long time ago, I guess it was Windows 95 or Windows 98, I remember when we click to shutdown the PC, it will show message like your PC is shutdown please turn off the power button. Anyone remember this? Those days, there wasn't ability to automatically turn off power button and you have to manually press it to turn it on or off. Later on new power button come around and when you shutdown your PC , it will automatically turn off power button too like what we have nowadays.
Complete mirrored backup (Everything)
Hello, I know I can make a backup of the OS (System Image Recovery) , but is there a way to also back up all the programs and apps installed? In case a hacker threatens to wipe out the hard disk it would be so nice to not even bother and as the ransom will not bde paid, just reinstall everything. I´m sure I'm not the first to wish this. Thanks for any idea, Ingemar
File Explorer very slow!!
When I open file explorer it scans the C: drive. When I single click a file, it scans the C: drive. If I open or modify a file (change the name) it scans the C: drive. These scans vary from 5 seconds to 20 seconds, EVERY TIME. I searched Windows defrag with the start menu search button, it brings me to optimize drives. When I run the optimizer, it completes the process in 5 seconds... but i see ZERO change in the performance of my laptop. Secondly, video media I have that used to play smoothly, suddenly plays very choppy. If it does or does not have any relation to the above problem. Thank you, Nick
Writer's Exercise Software for Microsoft Word
I have been thinking how helpful it would be to have software that can be set alongside a Microsoft Document that exercises a writer's momentum, that can be used to stimulate a writer out of writer's block, or even basic training skills (such as defragmenting or verb confusion correction). I could imagine that the seniority that Microsoft is able to create such software from, the programs would be worthwhile and a lot of fun!
Safely Remove USB Hard Drive
Hi, Some times I get this message when I try to eject my hard drive. "This device is currently in use. Close any programs or windows that might be using the device, and then try again." I have tried many suggested methods that I found on google search. None of them worked. Is it safe to just pull it out as suggested on this article (please see below) Thanks Thiru -- hide signature -- Microsoft Ditches ‘Safely Remove USB’ Requirement — Just Pull It Out 8 April 2019, 7:31 am EDT By Carl Velasco Tech Times It's common practice to hit "Safely Remove USB" before pulling out a flash drive from Windows devices, but Microsoft has officially called it quits on that requirements. As part of a new update, the Redmond company has modified the way Windows 10 handles disconnecting USBs or Thunderbolt storage devices. The change applies to USB thumb drives, external hard drives, flash drives, and even data transfer connections between PCs and smartphones. It took effect with the wide deployment of Windows 10 version 1809, which is the October 2018 update. https://www.techtimes.com/articles/241057/20190408/microsoft-ditches-safely-remove-usb-requirement-—-just-pull-it-out.htm ---------------
It's time for some computer-related jokes!
Anyone like jokes? This is the place to post some funnies on the topics of computer. No profanity or derogatory posts please. Blue-screen of death jokes are fair game though!
When the creators update for came out and installed for win 10 my optical drives stopped working and will not read media (any kind). I have been using a usb media drive to get buy. Both drives are recognized by Windows. I have tried all suggestions in the forums except making changes to the registry. This is the only place that is causing the problem since everything related to Windows operations goes through it. Any suggestions?
