Microsoft’ priorities –cosmetic change or neglecting faults
There used to be a car manufacturer in the UK called British Leyland, which was widely alleged to leave the reliability testing of new models to those customers who were foolish enough to buy them. Needless to say, its cars were full of faults and, unsurprisingly, the company went out of business. Microsoft seems to be heading down the same road. The latest Windows 10 Features Update 2004 apparently offers 16 new features. But it has also caused major problems for Windows users. These have been known since at least May, and many are unresolved, but this Update is still not labelled as a Beta version and users are being encouraged to take the Update without any warning that it is still full of problems. In my case, it has totally f**ked up my system. I cannot get any sound out of my audio system (Realtek in a Dell XPS 8930), and there is nothing in the troubleshooter, the support system or community forum which provides any clear and explicit guidance about how to resolve this. This approach to user support seems to typify Microsoft’s casual attitude to users of its systems. When Edge was introduced, it was an alleged improvement on Internet Explorer. It claimed to have many new features, but it also omitted some useful ones that had been part of IE, making some processes such as downloading and saving a copy of a pdf more complicated and time-consuming for users. And its handling of Favourites was and remains a disaster. What can we expect from the promised new Chromium-based version? Another shit-show? Office is suffering from the same pattern - producing continual unnecessary superficial cosmetic changes while reported faults are ignored. If the managers can't get the priorities right, and/or the programmers can’t cope with the complexity of what they are being asked to produce, isn’t it time for some substantial changes in the company’s personnel?
win10 ver 2004, folder options bug? (fixed)
(Edit, not bad, not even 30hrs from first update with the bug and another updates that fix it were available) build 2019.10.17.6232201; Control panel -> File Explorer Options-> tab 'View' or any file explorer window -> tab 'View' -> Options-> Change Folder and search options both open almost same settings, and the 'Advanced settings' apply in both cases to all folders; now when i select 'Show hidden files, folders, or drives' and unselect 'Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)' which asks for confirmation, then i click on 'Apply' and 'OK' nothing happens, i go back to File Explorer Options-> tab 'View' , and what i selected & unselected before has been undone, i repeat everything once more and now the hidden files appear and the advanced settings has been successfully altered, however if i want to hide all those files again, i need to repeat it twice in order for it to work; can anyone confirm if it happens on his/her PC as well?
Edge problem fix in High Contrast.
I use Windows 10 in the High Contrast, yellow on black theme almost exclusively. On certain apps this causes minor problems, e.g. my Excel spreadsheet didn't print out darkly enough. On a hunch, I switched back to the "normal" black on white theme and it printed out perfectly. When I'm using Edge in the HC theme, on certain websites, e.g. L.L.Bean, Edge abruptly shuts down when I try to enter data. This stops happeniong when I switch back to the "normal" theme. This does suggest that HC and Normal need to be better synchronized (?) I hope this proves helpful
see which apps are affecting your battery life
I have few things to ask. Under see which apps are affecting your battery life and under Windows Explorer, the percentage goes up even while not using it. It is still going up. How to get it to go down while not in use? The percentage for Edge will go down when not in use. Windows Explorer did go down 1% from 21% to 20% but went back up 1% to 21% (when Windows Explorer is not in use). So, what does that mean and what fixes are there?
Boa tarde, hoje dia 22.10.2020 recebi uma informação da nova versão disponível para instalação. Como estava disponível para o meu computador, executei. Mas notei que o menu iniciar não modificou da forma apresentada pela Microsoft. O que faço?
Microsoft is up to something good!
On two of my favorite web Windows websites this morning (mspoweruser.com and neowin.com) I read about What Microsoft is calling Sleeping Tabs. Now this is only available now for those of us that are using Edge Canary. But from what I gathered after I enabled the flag, was that it wouldn't be too long before it was fully released. What a resource saver that will be for some. You can read more about it here: https://mspoweruser.com/microsoft-edges-upcoming-sleeping-tabs-feature/ Another article was that those running Windows 10 Insiders Preview Build 20215 can now completely uninstall the People App. Here's the direct link to that article if your interested: https://mspoweruser.com/uninstall-microsoft-people-app-from-windows-10/
Yes! How do I know what my pin is when I sat up windows actually I don't remember setting one up. And when I had a camera I set up a face to log in. And that picture is still being the log in but since the new update to 2004 the picture is to big I can't click some parts of it to log in so I hit forgot pin then I get a box for a code then I hit cancel and windows lets me in. But this is very frustrating how can I just go back to logging in by a password and that picture goes away or don't use nothing and just log in?
Where do I fix connection sharing for programs?
In my attempts to find a problem I have in the desktop version of Quickbooks, I ran the database manager device and it says "Windows firewall: connection sharing not allowed" and "Network Diagnostics:" Failed, Resolve and retry" It appears I cannot locate anything to change in Window settings under the firewall, diagnostics etc. Does anyone know what this is or where I can locate it in my Windows 10 PC? I had no issues sharing the network for Quickbooks then all of the sudden I can not be on the network program at the same time as another user. I have 2 licenses for QB's so I am lost.
How about next update?
I want to know about any new features
