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?
Why were Cortana and Search separated into different icons?
Prior to the Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version 1903), there was one icon. It allowed me to search and access my Cortana interests. Now, there are two different icons. The Search icon allows me to search, and that's it. The Cortana icon allows me to see my interests from Cortana. My question is: Why do we now have separate icons?
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.
The Narrator and I
The Windows 10 Narrator bot is such a valuable resource to me. In fact I would be unable to fulfill my professional and personal commitments without Narrator. So, I am sending this message to the Windows team that design systems which are based on inclusivity especially for those of us who have some form of disability. The 'Ease of Access' function is another aid that guides the users to adjust the system to their specific needs. I am in the throes of theoretically building a bot that is personalised to my needs. I have not even started coding - still masses of learning to do. My project is an exciting challenge for me and Narrator is my partner in this venture. The AI School Platform is fantastic. Thanks to the Microsoft teams for developing inclusivity aids - great work guys 🤩😍💜
Beta Version Cortana 👍
I was sceptical of Cortana prior to April 2020. 🙄 I found this feature not very helpful (for me). With Beta Cortana which is now on my device I am more positive. The tests that I ran this morning on the whole produced good outcomes. 😀 This Beta version still has some way to go before I could really make use of this feature. However on the positive side, Windows has made significant upgrades to this feature - way to go Windows Team. 😀 ✅ I will continue to beta test.

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.
Hi. I am curious. I have a charge on my credit card for Microsoft Office 365. I thought this was free with with my computer and Windows 10. Dont want to cancel the credit card charge and lose Office 365. I am not tech smart...could you tell? LOL
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".
Shoutout for Microsoft Teams 🤩
We are more than aware of the ongoing situations with CoVid19. ☹ Many people have been confined to their homes or, self isolating for their health protection. For those people who are confined (like a contributor to this platform) as an example, they are able to carry out their job responsibilities from home because many of us live in a connected world. This could not have been possible without the advancement of computer technologies to the level as they are today. Just imagine this kind of situation 20 years ago?! Having just been contacted by an individual who is working under these conditions, they expressed the opinion and I quote 'thank goodness I am able to do this'. My colleague is using Windows 10. So Microsoft please accept this person's thanks. Guys you are cosmic 😃 and so are the people using this platform, offering their help and advice to other contributors - co cool .
