IMAP in Microsoft mail app
A friend wants to use her gmail account on her Windows 10 PC using the supplied Microsoft Mail app. She has successfully added one account, an NTL.net address, to the app. She tried adding her gmail account but it would not sync. I think she needs to do something about IMAP in gmail and Microsoft Mail. Can anyone please supply the precise steps she needs to take?
the sfc /scannow command
hi, I like to know a couple of things. Regards to the sfc /scannow to scan for corrupt system files. I remember in 1703, after using that scan to scan for corrupt system files, it will state: Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations. In 1709, it will state: Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log %WinDir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log after the scan. But from 1803 to 2004, it will state: Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them. Details are included in the CBS.Log %WinDir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log after the scan. I have to use the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth to restore the operation. Then, use the sfc /scannow command to get it to say: Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations. Now the thing is: maybe few days later, when doing the sfc /scannow command, it will state the same message, Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them. Details are included in the CBS.Log %WinDir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. How will I know if there are really corrupt files? I mean, there is a bug in that department?
HP HP Stream laptop
I am looking to find a way to update my window 10 since I have HP Stream laptop that my wife order from HSN. It hasn't be update for awhile no matter what I did by following all the instructions on almost every available website or using Youtube. I do have an external drive but it will not let me use it to update my window. I rather do this the easy way then to follow someone instruction that contains too many pages to follow. I need the quickest way to resolve this unless I have to pay for a remote assistance to repair this laptop.
All Detected Networks Stuck on Connect Automatically
Several days ago I got a new router from Xfinity (Arris TG1782g). My brother noticed immediately on his laptop (running Win 7) that when he clicks the Internet Access icon in the Task Bar, every single detected network in the area has Connect Automatically checked. We live in a densely populated city and there are a LOT of detected networks. I noticed a few moments ago that my PC running Win 10 Pro also has very single Connect Automatically box checked. Most are secured networks but some are not. I can uncheck them all but they revert back to checked immediately. There is no option to 'forget' any of the networks listed and I can't find a setting to uncheck or remove them. I also cannot find a user manual anywhere online for the new router, nor can I find anything in the router's settings that covers my issue. I do not have this issue with my Apple and Android devices. It's only Windows.
virus and threat protection
I didn't know my Windows Defender virus & threat protection was turned off. How do I turn this back on?
Can't adjust screen brightness.
Helllo. I recently updated my Laptop with the latest version of Windows 10. Everything works fine EXCEPT the screen brightness. Earlier I could adjust my screen brightness, but now no matter how much I increase or decrease the level in the control panel, the actual brightness level remains the same, and I think it's at the highest level, since the battery is going done by a scary 10% in 20 minutes. I am currently working on my laptop wearing sunglasses. Please Helpp ! P.S My laptop has got two Display Adapters, Radeon Graphics and Intel Graphics, and I've tried updating both the drivers, and it says that you've already got the best drivers for your device, after searching on the internet.
A little circle under my cursor
Whenever I am writing in email, or other apps, I have a little circle under my cursor. I did not always have this and I am sure there is a setting someplace to eliminate it. I have the little circle right now.
Uninstalling the MS Photo app
I have two laptops. On one of them, running windows 10, S0H2, the photos app will not show albums from One Drive. It will display new albums, and I can create new albums and upload them to OneDrive, but it will not show me the over 1200 albums I have on OneDrive. I've reset the app and that doesn't help. I can't uninstall the app as the uninstall feature is "grayed" out and doesn't work. I'd llike to uninstall and reinstall the app to get it working properly. Does anyone know a way I can do that? Thanks for your help Ken
need admin status to install printer driver?
I'm trying to install an HP ML-2510 printer driver. Win 10 is giving me a message asking if I want to allow this app to make changes to my device and to enter an admin user name and password. There is no space to enter it and I get the same message when I try to access User Account Control. I'm wondering why I need admin access to install a printer driver on a home computer? Is this an indication of a problem or does Win 10 actually require admin login for this? If admin login is required how do I give myself admin access without having admin access? There are no passwords set on the computer I just can't get to the screen.
