Results for: windows apps
Prior to 2004, I used a Windows-based computer. I was unhappy with Windows because of constant "blue screens of death", hackers planting viruses, etc...When I became a truck driver in 2004, I mainly used a mobile phone and started using Google products. I like their products and they all work seamlessly with each other. Now, I am a full-time Care-Provider for my mother and just purchased a new computer with Windows 10 Pro installed. I decided to give Microsoft apps a try once again because I do like their products. On my PC there are no problems, but on my Android phone, I just can't seem to get Cortana to work hands-free, and with certain apps. I do understand that there is a war between Microsoft, Apple, Google and any other companies that are out there, but, the customer (that would be you and I) should be able to use whatever Assistant we choose to work with any apps that we like and use. Case in point: the Google Assistant comes on automatically when I say "OK Google" (hands-free), and I can set a timer, ask about the weather, play my favorite music in the Google Play app, etc....no problem....Today I downloaded Cortana to work with all my apps and I cannot even get it to turn on without tapping the microphone button. I made it my default app, turned on all the permissions, etc...and I am discouraged with Microsoft again. I haven't given up yet, but I had to switch back to the Google Assistant just so I can do the things I need to do hands-free, which comes with a cost of not being able to use some of the Microsoft apps unless done manually. I like Microsoft's To-Do List, but Google Assistant will only open Google's Task app. It just defeats the whole purpose of downloading all of Microsoft's apps if I can't use everything seamlessly. I use Amazon Music now, and neither Assistant will open it. I would really like to use whatever Assistant I choose with the default apps that I select. Now, am I doing something wrong or does this sound about right?

Download Failure - Windows 10
Why do all downloads fail as reported to contain a virus and automatically deleted even though they come from legitimate sources? How do I fix this? Seems a commonly reported problem but cannot find an answer that works as most involve downloading a virus checking which I cannot do because of the download failure problem.

Windows 10 video Editor
I can only put one word on my video in the Windows 10 Editor. I already tried clicking on some points in the video and putting other words, but only once it is accepted! So I watch the video and there is only the last word I put. ( I was unable to send another question. So I edited this at the moment! )

Trouble getting Android and ios devices to work on windows.
Trouble getting Android and ios devices to work on windows. I don´t know what it is on my PC (Defender/Netrwork) but i use FL Studio and they have a free app to both Android and ios devices but windows give full acces for few seconds and then i loose contact again. I even tried to use a wireless dongle for some had a idea about wireless devices should be more easy to obtain the connection between win10 and Smartphones or tablets. I can´t find anywhere i can disable Windows Firewall and i think there is a lot of changes there does it impossible to get it to work probber. My antivirus has to sub-apps set to alow working thru its firewall and then it must be something else there keep disconnecting me. How do i get this problem analyzed to the bootom so i can have a wireless device connected to my software. Any help would be nice.
Windows product key verification
Hi there, I have a laptop that came with Windows 10 Pro. I use my pc for work, the company added a work user as the admin on my PC. When I leave the company they will remove that user and its information, which is fine. The problem comes in that I once this has been done I want to do a PC restore, so that I am sure that any permissions or restrictions etc they've put on are removed. What I'm worried about is that I don't know if the laptop originally came with Windows 10 Pro or whether the supplier simply upgraded it to Pro. I have found my product key using the CMD function, but I was wondering if there is any way I can verify that it is in fact a Pro license and not a Home license. Please assist if possible on how/where I can verify this.
My C-disc is nearly full, show red, and therefore I want to remove $WINDOWS.~BT - but it is nearly impossible. Tried as administrator to go to CMD and delete, not possible, tried to remove any attrib - still not possible to delete. I think it is terrible that old windows program take nealy 11 Gbyte of my disc.
Windows Defender running with Norton 360 turned on
Windows Defender turned OFF by Norton 360 still runs and disallows setup.exe to run with no option to run setups. Screen: Microsoft Defender SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk. The only choice is: Don't run. This results even after Norton 360 turned off Windows Defender. Can't turn off Windows Defender because Norton has already turned it off.
