  3. I wish to backup my contact list onto a flash drive but I don't know how to duplicate the list to a folder so I can download to my 16 GB flash drive. I also want to include a copy of my document file to the same flash drive and once transferred I'm told I can send the two envelope files to their correct location in case the ones on my computer are lost or if I want to transfer to another computer. Thank you for your help.
  4. I am just starting to try to learn how to use Windows 10 Speech recognition but am going nowhere. I attempted to use the Microsoft community with no success falling foul of the 15 minutes on the bench rule for messing up my password so I would like to look for help hear. Please direct me elsewhere if this is not the appropriate forum. I managed to talk to the microphone and saw the words appearing on the Search box but I want to get them to appear on a sheet of A4 so how do I do that. I kept seeing "Cortana" appearing but do I really need that?

    Windows Defender Fails

    No. Windows Defender is the only Antivirus on my system. Window Security Health works OK when Quick Scan is selected. But Windows Defender crashes when Advanced Scans are selected. I am running Windows 10, version 1803. This problem has persisted for seven days. The current build is 17134.112... I have had two remote sessions which solve the problem temporarily, but a few hours later, Windows Security Health crashes when Advanced Scan is selected. Before submitting this, I have run SFC and DISM. DISM made repairs, then I rebooted. The problem with Security Health Center still happens. This is a MAJOR ERROR, Microsoft. This is fundamental to the safe functioning of WINDOWS OS. Prob2.txt

    Photos app can no longer trim videos

    I have a lot of drive space and the files are not that big. The weird thing is that after I did a reinstall of Windows via Media creation tool, I was able to trim again. But then after some time, I get the 0-byte-trims again. I have tried to uninstall Photos and even after uninstall there are still 2 maps in the map Windowsapps, called Microsoft.Windows.Photos and the one of them contains the program Microsoft.Photos, isn´t that weird? I uninstalled via Powershell adm. There were originally 4 maps, but now 2, after uninstall. I attach a pic of the Windows Logbook showing the error, when I try to trim.
  10. Thank you for the Windows Update troubleshooter help! It worked!

    my sd card reader won't work

    Got it. There is a chance the Memory card is also the issue. You might format it or grab another one just to test the card is good.
  14. It looks like you just need to add a column to Windows Explorer in that folder. This is simple. Just Right-Click the the Column and add the missing column. You can also add a missing Column by clicking: View > Add Columns From there, you just need to add the Date created or Date modified column. You should also make sure the view is in Details mode as shown in the screenshot above.

    my sd card reader won't work

    It is part of the computer that I just bought. It worked for a couple of days then gave up. I plan on returning the whole computer because this not the only issue with it.

    Help detecting keyboard

    Can't select any thing. No keyboard detected. However I can go into the BIOS and make selections. I tried other keyboards with different interfaces and get the same result. The only thing I could do is reload Windows 7. The computer is working fine on Windows 7 and I'm reluctant to upgrade to 10.
  18. Have Olympus Voice Recorder 400S. Used for 5 years with Windows 7 and downloads of voice recordings show date/time info. Download into Windows 10...file opens and does not show date/time. Called Olympus and they said it should be reflected----said must have to do with Windows 10 settings. I'm new to Windows 10....half the time it seems like Windows 10 forces apps on you that you don't want to use. Never had a problem with this in Windows 7. Help please?

    W10 update kb4100403

    Hi Brian. As I mentioned in my reply to cajon 1, I tried to do an uninstall of the update but when my computer restarted it installed that update again. I read an article that said that w10 by default does not create restore points and he was right so I turned that on. My previous version of windows that I was using was Vista. Don't really want to go back to that as it is unsupported. I guess that because the update was downloaded already that it just reinstalled again.

    Can't find my USB drive

    When you plugin your USB drive, Windows should prompt to you take an action. If not, you can go into Windows Explorer and look under "This PC". It will list all the drives on the PC including any External USB drive.

    System Backup

    How much drive space do you have? Have you tried to format the drive and restart? Is the drive formatted as NTFS? Just throwing out a few ideas.

    Win2go stuck

    Hey @Dell - Thanks for the update. Yeah, I think Windows To Go is a great tech which is mainly designed to throw your install on a USB stick so you can walk it around on different systems. Glad to hear just the standard install worked fine on that external drive you have.

    how to untar/decompress....

    Hi @hippie If you're running Windows, just go and download 7-Zip. https://www.7-zip.org/ Once you do that, you should be able to open File explorer, Right-Click on the file you want to decompress, 7-Zip should be in the context menu, select Extract files. Hopefully this helps.
  24. Hi @schabelf - As time moves forward with new builds of Windows 10, you might want to just look at moving to a new Wallpaper app. What features does it have that is keeping you on the old software vs. trying what's native to Windows and/or finding a new app built for Windows 10.

    Help detecting keyboard

    What happens when you select US ? Will it not accept your selection?
  28. I ran into issues and what I did was log out of the store with my normal Windows ID fully then logged back in with a new ID i created. I then logged it out and back in again with my normal ID. It was a pain but it reset everything in the store on my Windows 10 install. Might give that a shot.

    Hi Katherine, Did the card reader EVER work? Why not return it and buy another one?
