I'm not technically inclined.
I rely on my Microsoft Windows ten 🔟 to solve most problems and 99% hasn't let me down. I will not insult the Technician's intelligence by presuming to suggest how to better the system. I do want "people-friendly" included in the future. People such as myself are not Technicians.
Hi - I try to upgrade to Windows 10 Insider Preview 10.0.20236.1005 (rs_prerelease), but the upgrade get stucked at 28%. I have done the "normal" way do clear the problem by stopping Wuauserv, BITS, msiserv and CryptSvc - clearing SoftwareDistribution folder (Approx 10.4GB) and then starting the services again. But with the only result that a new download is ready for installation (i.g. the same version) and a new boot gives the same 28% stop. My %Windows.~BT folder is not empty (ca 1GB), but I am a little bit unsure to delete this if I am "in the middle" of an upgrade and by deleting forces me to go through a system restore...or a complete new windows version install. cleanmgr /D C /sageset:65535 & cleanmgr /D C /sagerun:65535 doesn't clean the folder btw. Am I missing some log files to delete or any other comments/solutions? All the best, Stig

Microsoft's new competition from Google "Stack"
This one I must ad is rather formidable too. Google's Area 120 has released an app called Stack. https://www.androidcentral.com/google-area-120-develops-stack-document-scanner For those that have not read about it, it is a mobile scanner app much like Microsoft Office Lens. Being the curious type that I am, I had to try it out. Here is what I found. This is going to make Microsoft sit up and take notice! plain and simple. Why? Mainly because of the AI features that they have built in, but also the "Stacks" are easier to access, than are Microsoft's, upload locations. Also you really don't need to center the device on the object to be scanned, just over it. You'll just have to try that one. But let's talk about the AI. What got my attention there, was when I scanned an item, which happened to be a bill, when it was ready to save to their "Stack", it showed me the name of the Payee. Where as with Office Lens I would need to edit their random file name to reflect the payee name. Maybe not a big deal, but certainly noteworthy. for those like myself that use Office Lens fairly frequently. Those are the 3 up sides. The down sides are, it's still in Beta, I felt that the UI was clunky, and although it says you can save the scan to somewhere other than Google Drive, I didn't find anywhere to change that. I saw where to turn it off, but not where to change. it. Bottom line from a lay person: Google Stack can when polished give Microsoft Office Lens a run for it' money, But Office Lens is tried and true and just keeps getting better and better. I'm staying with it
What do you think of Microsoft's UI Design?
Since Windows 8, Microsoft's taken the lead in pioneering modern UI design standards. The goal seems to be to make a cohesive touch-friendly UI across Windows, with an emphasis on flat, sharp elements and icons as well as tiles that have defined a lot of Microsoft's design language. With the inclusion of fluent design, subtle references to skeuomorphism, like lighting, highlights, and texture have been added back to Windows, without compromising any other modern design guidelines. These efforts are commendable, and demonstrates Microsoft's progressive design standards. However, the focus on mobile-friendly and touch-friendly interfaces has become concerning, especially since new designs have changed from a mobile-first to a mobile-only style. Large fonts and buttons, excessive padding, and limited customizability might be fine on mobile apps because mobile devices are limited, and more difficult to work with, but these same design elements are hostile and inefficient to mouse-and-keyboard users. If you compare Windows 10 apps to their Windows 7 counterparts, you can see that the newer apps take up more screen space while doing more or less the same function. This is a problem. A focus on Mobile-friendly design should not ever mean mouse-and-keyboard unfriendly, especially since this is the primary method of input on desktop computers. I was once especially fond of the Microsoft Office interface as an example of crisp, modern design that does not compromise mouse and keyboard usability. Most importantly, Office came with a "touch mode" and "mouse mode" option, creating the most optimal interface for each input method. However, the latest redesign of the Office ribbon seems to move further and further from these sensible design guidelines. The new simplified ribbon has no changes for mouse and touch mode, along with a host of other issues. I'm concerned over the direction of Microsoft's UI design, and I'd like to bring up these issues for consideration.
Untouched space inserts between characters when typing
While typing in Edge and Canary Edge, a space will insert between typed characters even when neither space bar or enter key is struck. Similar problem in earlier releases that was seemingly resolved until last two Insider Fast Track releases,
So hard to use the search function in File Explorer of 1909
Hi, I am a so old Windows user since Windows 3.2. I found it so hard to use the updated search function in File Explorer of 1909. 1. In 1903 and earlier, I click the search box, the search ribbon tool appear immediatelly, and I can modify the search options, like search by time/size and/or other properties. In 1909, the search ribbon tool does not come out immediatelly, I have to type something before the tools appear, and delete what I have typed to search all the files with just the modified option. It is not satisfied. 2. When I click the search box, the history list does not jump out smoothly. Sometimes it has no response, no input icon, I have to close the file explorer window, which is quite annoying. 3. The appear of address and search box are changed, they look taller than before, I perferde the slim design.
I know how to share my sticky notes on my Android phone from either the Microsoft Launcher, or from within OneNote. But is there a way to share a sticky note from my Windows 10 laptop?
I'm just sharing my experience. Hoping your suggestion to correct or improve the steps based on your experience, so I can learn much from this community for the step / tips/ trick that I don't know. Usually this happened on built-in camera. I will take the following steps and stop the next steps if problem has solved: 1) Sign out from current account -> restart -> sign in with administrator account. 2) Update BIOS, then camera driver, then camera firmware if suggested and/or available from laptop manufacturer. 3) Update Win 10 to the latest version including all pending updates -> restart computer. 4) Troubleshoot Windows Store Apps. Find it by typing "troubleshoot" in windows search. 5) Check the camera privacy setting, whether it's blocked. Find it by typing "privacy settings" in search. 6) Reset Camera app. Find it by typing "apps & features" in search -> Advanced options -> Reset. 7) Check camera device compatibility in Device Manager -> right-click camera device -> Property -> Driver -> click Driver Details. If there is stream.sys in the list, then I will suggest my client to replace the camera device with a new one or use external camera. If not, it might be compatible with win 10. 8) Edit windows registry. Sometime can fix the problem. WARNING : please readers DO NOT do this if not familiar. Do it with your own risk. 8.a. Backup and save current registry setting. 8.b. Edit registry at: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> WOW6432Node -> Microsoft -> Windows Media Foundation. On the right pane of the Registry Editor of Windows Media Foundation, create the new DWORD (32-bit) Value -> enter EnableFrameServerMode (without space) as the title for the new DWORD -> double-click EnableFrameServerMode -> Input 0 (zero) for Value data -> OK -> Restart. If any things is missing or there is any other tips that I don't know, please let me know.
