Recovering from hard drive failure
Hello, Please NOTE: I have an extremely bad attitude when it comes to Microsoft and Windows. Therefore, I will refrain from offering my opinions and I would appreciate it if others would do the same. I recently had my boot SSD fail. I've installed a new one and installed Windows 10 on it. When I set up this computer initially, I only installed Windows 7 on my boot drive (it was later upgraded without my knowledge or permission to Windows 10). I installed all other applications on mechanical hard drives. I initially had Windows keeping a back up for my bootable drive. After a period of months the external 1 TB drive I was using to back up the 256 GB SSD was full. I looked at the files. It appeared that the backup initially created an image of the drive then added periodic small files for changes (once a day, once a week, I do not remember) and that a restore would require going through all files. I stopped using Windows backup. I have windows 10 installed on a new hard drive. I have three questions: 1) - Determined this isn't possible... 2) - How can I reinstall Microsoft Office 2010? Not sure if I can locate the original discs. 3) - How can I create and maintain an image of my boot drive so that when my boot drive dies, I can put in a new drive and restore that image? - I've read about using a RAID array but I'm not certain that would work for me because I'm not clear on whether replacement drives in a RAID have to be identical to those being replaced. This has happened to me twice since Windows 95. The first time I was able to access the boot drive and repair it though I haven't the faintest idea how or what I did at that time. I apologize if I did not keep my opinions to myself.
Recent update moved all files
A recent update (on 11/8/2020) moved all my files to C:\Users\12169 and very few things function anymore (camera, outlook, calculator to name a few). Once I found where all the files were moved to, I move them back to where they should be, it updates again, and hides everything again. As a bonus all files that have been created since the first update a week ago are NOWHERE to be found after each subsequent update. I have tried to restore to an earlier version of Windows 10 and a message comes up to remove new account but only has one listed. Any thoughts?
Audio Muffled on HP Pavillion 15-cw1063wm after update
My audio has become muffled on my HP Pavillion 15-cw1063wm after the most recent windows update. Unless it's something else? Also, my B&O Audio Control is not connecting "Can not connect to RPC service".
10S to Pro
I'm looking to gift a Windows 10 S to Pro tablet and have read the good and bad about switching. I've read the articles, watched the videos, still don't have to T-shirt though. If you've done this what was your experience, and was it worth it? To others in here, not to hurt your feelings but if you haven't done it please don't bother replying, as I've said I've watched the videos and read the articles. Thanks
Complete Black Screen Everywhere. Even In Safe Mode.
Hello, please help me! I just downloaded a theme from devianart, installed it, then when I clicked on it through windows settings, it said "Please Wait" for a second (default screen when themes are changing) and then just made all my active windows black. Explorer, chrome & Windows Settings was black & suddenly, screen completely turned black with just mouse pointer showing up. Can't use Start, Run or Ctrl+Alt+Del. Couldn't do ANYTHING accept holding the power button for 10 seconds and pressing shift to enter recovery menu (the one with a blue screen and 6 options like troubleshoot, continue and reset) there i ran cmd and tried to uninstall my current theme, but it just showed 3 themes - . , .. and aero. i couldn't find the custom theme name, not a single! (i had multiple downloaded but never applied) I tried system restore point, that failed (i made one before installing the theme) I also tried startup repair, didn't work. FINALLY I tried safe mode, but IT DIDN'T WORK TOO! Just my mouse cursor size increased and black screen was still there, nothing working at all (same as in normal mode). Please help me! All information is above!

Time for a joke!
What do you call me and other people on the Windows Community who love math? The answer will be posted later.
I have used the MS Windows trouble shooter for speakers (numerous times). I believe after a software update my speakers have been garbled (not clear sounding). I usually run the trouble shooter (the problem with speakers comes back after shutting off the computer), normally the trouble shooter fixes the problem, but not always. I could not find any frequently asked questions that handle this situation or a permanent fix/correction for it.
Will You Save Your System or Format it?
Let say you are facing a technical problem in Windows and you have the following options: 1) You could just format and reinstall Windows (e.g. using reset or refresh) and reinstall and recover everything and go back to world. 2) You will work on find and fix the problem and solve it without formatting your Windows. The first one might be easy but you will need to reinstall everything and second one might be time consuming but you won't go for reinstall and recovery process.
Little oopsie with the Feature Update - Notifications?
In my previous version of Windows 10 I was able to tap on a notification (Windows Community) and the system would take me directly to the conversations panel. I seem to be unable to do this now. I have sent message to the Feedback Hub 😊. This part of the message is timed at 16:10 hours. Would you believe it 👀 - I have just checked with another notification and the tap on the panel now works 😊👏. Many thanks team Windows 🙏
