  2. Bring back typing for Cortana. My computer is not the most up to date, but works fine, but It is not equip for voice with Cortana. I use to be able to type in what I needed or wanted to know, now you have gone and changed. I don't understand why you could not have left us a choice to use either/or. Why would that had been such an issue.

  4. Hello, our office has (4) computers all running on Windows 7. My owner wants to upgrade these (4) to Windows 10 Pro. Yes, they all ignored the free update and are now past any end of life software support. What specific sofware do I need to purchase from Microsoft? I see many Windows 10 options listed out there and I don't want to purchase unnecessary software. Your professional advice is needed. Best Regards Tommyboy
  5. I changed the resolution in Windows 10 and now I cannot get into my computer as the screen is black and says D-SUB out of range 99.3 KHz/60HZ? Does anyone know what I can do? I tried going into safe mode but could still not resolve anything!
  6. Hi there. In Windows 10 Home when I'm writing an email I can't find the way to switch languages like I can do with Windows XP, press right and change languag.... Any idea how can i do it please Thank you
  7. I had a lot of trouble trying to use the Media Creation Tool. I am using an HP netbook with only 32 gb for my C drive. The media creation tool asked me to free 8 gb before it could create the bootable USB drive. I cleared the 8 gb. Then the Media Creation Tool proceeded to download the Windows 10 data, but it apparently couldn't create the bootable USB drive because 8 gb free on my C drive wasn't enough. It should have told me how much space to clear before downloading the data for two hours. It would be nice to be able to download the data onto a drive other than my C drive because the netbook I use has an SSD slot and some USB ports. One feature I could use, is a way to to add my SD card storage to my C drive. The disk cleanup function is very badly implemented. When I uninstalled a bunch of apps they left a lot of files scattered on my hard drive. I had to through my C drive folder by folder to try to find stuff I could delete that was left behind. I would like Microsoft to add some sort of hypervisor to monitor disk activity. Any time a file is created or deleted, it could be noted in a single file that's a directory. If an install program is started, the directory could detail which app it belongs to. There must be a way for windows to notice when new software is being added. A search of a C drive shouldn't take several minutes, it should take seconds. A single file with metadata should be maintained as hard disk activity occurs, to keep track of what's on the drive. Check sums could be use for new files being added to the drive to determine if it's on the black list or not. Why doesn't windows monitor internet activity and maintain a black list to keep malicious sites from being accessed? At least warn the user. Crash reports and system state data could be used to find some malware. A lot of the software I have been adversely effected by were "free" utilities to accomplish a basic computing task, such as converting a file. A whole LOT of malware can be blocked by warning the windows customer before they download a bad ware or visit a URL that's been identified as nasty. Why doesn't windows keep an eye on internet activity, cpu/ gpu and memory usage, disk activity and identify code that's behaving dodgy? I have tried many anti virus products over the years and none of them seem to help much. Any time my computer has been infected, I had a lot of problems using functions of my computer. One common symptom is my CPU being maxed out constantly when I'm not running much. I think that if you watched the Windows machines for the characteristics of a compromised system, you may be able to identify the exploits being used and patch them quickly. For a given model of computer are there not baselines which can be used to detect a root kitted system. When a system is built at the factory, why not have the configuration sent to a microsoft server, tied to the systems MAC address so windows knows exactly how many cycles to expect from a system. The physical hardware should be detectable via the network connection in a way that doesn't use firmware, and the networking functions could be standardized and baked into the hardware in ROMs, so that the Windows servers can always see what hardware is being used. I'm trying to think of some way we can actually stop rootkits somewhat. It may be a decent idea to provide roms to OEMs that contain enough of Windows so that a computer can always be controlled by MS servers in the event of a computer needing to be restored. This ROM should be able to connect to Microsoft and begin the Window installation process. I mean, c'mon guys. The OS is only 10 gb. A 1 or 2 gb ROM in all new computers, could be what's needed to keep the system completely virus free! Of course this requires an internet connection. But Internet access is somewhat ubiquitous. Anyways, just some thoughts I was having about the OS. It's gotten way better over the years, but still has a lot of problems that you don't expect from an OS.

  9. Hi Paulus, I discovered that it was possible to launch Teams using cmd IF the window closed before the dump occurred (go figure!). For instance, if it closes immediately after starting Teams, i.e, no other commands nor PAUSE are given afterwards. After several tries, I've managed a rather convoluted solution, using 2 batch scripts. Main script: ## Start.bat ECHO Starting Microsoft Teams START "" /B "Teams.bat" PAUSE --------------------------------- ## Output Starting Microsoft Teams Press any key to continue . . . Secondary script: ## Teams.bat CMD /C START "" "C:\Users\TAO\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Teams\current\Teams.exe" EXIT --------------------------------- ## Output n/a See if this helps, because Teams certainly doesn't. tao
  10. Hi, I have the same problem, found that you cannot start teams directly using the "current\Teams.exe" file with cmd or powershell. So I now use the following: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Teams\Update.exe --processStart "Teams.exe" --process-start-args "--system-initiated" Hopefully this will help you as well tao
  11. Why can't I download and play games from the google play store on my 2-1 tablet? I open it on my tablet, and it shows games I have installed on my phones. It doesn't let me add this tablet/laptop to the devices there so I can get them on here. Thank you for your help.
  12. Hey all. I just started using Windows 10 and having some issues. I downloaded apps and can't find them anywhere. Google Docs and free Forza game. Did a PC search, nothing. No icons on desktop. Not in my downloads or files. Microsoft store tells me they are installed, but they are nowhere to be found. Please help? I have a 2-1 laptop/tablet. Thank you for your help.
  13. I have suddenly stated getting this icon flashing on my screen. It stays in the foreground and moves up and down the left hand side of the screen Sound still operates normally and changing from low to high or high to low volume has no effect. Can anyone tell me what it is, where it came from and hown to get rid of it. Thank you Pete
  14. I agree 100% cant turn it off or remove
  15. bill gates creates windows and crams it into as many pc's possible and makes a fortune off of us...for a product that doesn't do what it's suppose to do. then when it doesn't work we're left here to ask for help and ask questions. i guess while all the microsoft employees sit around scratching their heads on how to make a better windows. maybe 10 is good enough if you'd just make it so it lasts more than a year and do what it's suppose to, but who cares? bill gates has left the building. quit. crawled out the back window. maybe that's why no one answers questions here.
  16. Starting this morning I can no longer access the cloud to play my MS Solitaire Collection. But...Mahjong works fine. I just cannot play the main games on top, just the optional ones below.
  17. Hi guys my computer cant not read the DVD that I have copied the windows 10 operating system please help I want to install windows 10
  18. when i used media creation tool to install new windows 10 while at 1% when it first started to run it stayed at 1% for probably 6 or 7 minutes with the little circle of dots spinning. i looked up at the screen and that had stopped turning, still at 1%. i did some other things and checked on it a minute or two later, same thing. i had an e machine once did this during system restore and i got worried about it and hit cancel. nothing, i couldn't click anything. i pushed power on my pc holding it in and my screen went black. i waited a few then rebooted and it came back on the same, frozen. i repeated that move and let it sit once off a few minutes more and turned back on and it opened normally. so if i run that media creator again or anything that is doing an install on here and it freezes at maybe 40% or more what do i do? i feel like at that point it may not reopen again, what should i do? will anyone answer here? please?
  19. i've tried everything. it started out my pc hasn't updated since january. troubleshooter didn't help, i went through every step virtual bot suggested all the agents tried failed. it was suggested i do a fresh install. i tried everything there also. the last attempt i tried was the reset. i opened it and at one percent it froze up and i couldn''t do anything. luckily i had to shut it down with the power button. it came back on where it went off. frozen up still showing the reset window. the second time it came back on normally thankfully. this is a barely out of warranty...of course lenovo 330 and it almost and may yet go in the trash. this is rediculous! should i try to reset in safe mode? what? what do i do now after jumping through all the hoops and all for naught? please? thank you, i'll hang up and listen.

  21. Disconnect the device from the power supply for up to 1 minute and then reconnect it. Often, your remote control will work again if you quickly restart the Fire Stick or Fire TV. You can call our Fire Stick support portal if you need further help.
  22. This issue started after I updated windows 10 through a windows pop up saying that i had an update after i started my computer. I went into troubleshooting setting from the shift restart page to uninstall the latest qualoty of life update and this successfully let me log in to my account once, but deleted all other accounts but their files were still there. After shutting down my computer and turning it back on again, i am again left with my original issue and my only way to log in at the moment is through using safe mode. Thanks for any help.
  23. Re: Windows 10 Command Prompt 2019 10.0.1862.657 Sequence: open CMD in required folder (1) Enter a command of the form <App_name> <Script_file_name> <Data_file_name> (2) Execute that command. (3) Examine output, edit and save <Script_file_name> as same name (4) Re-execute the last (2) command (5) Command operates on the FIRST VERSION of file, not the current version (6) Command prompt has an internal cashed copy of the files (7) Command prompt does not check whether the internal cached copy id the most recent (8) The script file is large and the only solution is to rename each edited version (9) Other parts of Windows 10 - e.g. Office would not accept this erroneous mode of operation (10) To my knowledge earlier versions of Command prompt did have this problem. PLEASE FIX!
