    update manually

    I use windows 10 pro on desktop computer and windows 10 home on laptop. I am the only user/administrator. the only way I can update windows 10 is to change the useage times to other than the time I want to update. there is always a statement in red on the update area : some settings are managed by your organization. I don't have an organization and I want to be able to update manually. this seems to be preventing updates except when I am not using the computer(s) then when I turn computer on it is so slow because it is downloading updates I guess. How do I take full control of when I update and stop the statement in red about someone else is in control of some settings.

    Problem with command script

    Same here. I made a small batch file to open several programs when I arrive at work. One of them is Microsoft Teams. It started returning this precise error when I changed from the web app to the desktop app. Before (no errors): ## Start.bat ECHO Starting Microsoft Edge - Teams Web App START "" /B microsoft-edge: PAUSE ## Output Starting Microsoft Edge - Teams Web App Press any key to continue . . . After (error "MaxListenersExceededWarning"): ## Start.bat ECHO Starting Microsoft Teams START "" /B "C:\Users\T\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Teams\current\Teams.exe" PAUSE ## Output Starting Microsoft Teams Press any key to continue . . . (node:11632) MaxListenersExceededWarning: Possible EventEmitter memory leak detected. 11 appInitialized listeners added. Use emitter.setMaxListeners() to increase limit All answers I've seen are Javascript related, which is rather useless, as I do not control whatever Javascript is being called or its parameters. Any help is welcome. tao

Hi,Had been having various problems with laptop which resulted in me using my recovery USB.I have a Acer Aspire 3 with Windows 10.Once the recovery was complete the laptop has had the same issues it had been having prior to the recovery. These were:Cortana Freezing intermittently Search bar freezing intermittently Google Chrome freezing intermittently with web pages freezing before opening websiteTaking ages for webpages to load even though have good speed of internet (checked through speedtest) General Freezing of different programmes intermittently Generally slow to boot Slow when opening programmesThere is nothing on the computer in terms of files clogging up the system which could cause it to freeze.I have performed a virus check and it is completely clean.I am at a total loss what to do. The laptop is only 2 months old and had been working fine up until a few days ago and had been incredibly fast.I would be so grateful if anyone can help me or point me in the right direction.I look forward to hearing from you.
  9. Hello, The improved magnifier in windows 10 is a very important tool for the visually impaired. The magnifier used to track the keyboard and mouse cursor without any problem until a few weeks ago when it stopped tracking keyboard cursor in both my PC and laptop. It does track the keyboard cursor in MS Office applications but does not do so in Chrome and other applications. Please advise, Avishay

    iAqualink Message Error

    I started with the 52 error. On another forum thread I saw to connect to the iaqualink drive and repair. When I ran the configuration program again got the 67 error. Looked at the drive and saw that it had no files were before it had a SETTINGS file. I turned on show hidden files in windows and saw several files from 2011 when I bought the iaqualink and one ._SETTINGS file from 2017. There was very little space on the iaualink flash drive so I deleted the SETTINGS file. Re-ran the Configuration program and it completed successfully.

    Administrator account

    I have been denied access to the ability to send files from my own HDD to my own SSD despite having entered my name and PWD. I tried to get a code thru email: no response. I tried to get a code thru phone: no response I tried to link my Hotmail acct to my Google address: "Try later" was the Microsoft answer! How can I inform "Permanently" this computer about me being the unique and sole administrator? Thanks. Administrator.docx
  20. Windows 10's May update will come with a really good browser. Microsoft Chromium powered Edge browser is smooth, fast and clean like Google Chrome was when it first debuted. It looks like I will finally replace Firefox as my default browser. Developers are optimizing their websites and PWA's for Chromium so I might as well, reluctantly, join the bandwagon.

  22. Hello, earlier today I was doing homework on my Dell Inspiron 13 7000 Windows 10 laptop and I got the little pop up that says battery is low. I ignored it like I usually did and then it said battery very low. This is usually where I get up and plug in the charger but sometimes I keep doing what im doing and then it dies and I realize I forgot to go get the charger. Thats what happened here. I left my computer open and went to get my charger. I plugged it up and waited a couple of minutes because it usually turns on by itself. I pressed the power button a couple of times after that and it still didn't turn on. I closed the computer opened it and pressed the power button and it didn't come on. I repeated this multiple times occasionally holding down the power button but nothings working. The little white light is still illuminating on the corner of the computer that signifies your computer is charging yet its not turning on. Any solutions/suggestions? Thank You!

  24. Once I turned off the raid array and reinstalled Windows 10, all was well. Both the 3 TB and the 1 TB HDDs were there and were in disk manager. PC is now operating normally. Thanks to all for the help
  25. Hi - A drive defrag will not fix a slow PC issue normally. That said, you can find the Defrag / Drive Optimization in Windows 10 by: Open File Explorer > Right Click the Drive > Click Properties > Click Tools Tab. You will see the button on Optimize your drive there. Now - regarding your slow PC issue - how is it slow? Might be something else going on.

    Error after CMOS replacement

    Is that a BIOS error you are getting or from Windows? Where did you get the batter? Correct one?

    .tar.gz extensions.....

    Best bet @hippie is to use 7 Zip. It will be able to open pretty much any compressed file.
