Quote from: DeadHead on July 31, 2015, 09:50:49 AMAnother Question:I would love to have the search function to actually search stuff on my computer first, and the web as a secondary location, not the other way around as it is now (at least when it comes to documents).For example, I would like to search a text document with the name "something.txt". It won't show up, unless I press that annoying little icon to search "My stuff" (or whatever that's called on the english version of the os).Windows 7 were far easier this way imho, when it comes to doing searches through the start button.
Quote from: chris635 on August 11, 2015, 02:42:34 PMOkay...so I like using Itunes. The task bar button doesn't work right on windows 10. I have Itunes pinned, but it opens a new button every time I open it. I tried all of the tricks that were used in windows 7. I don't know what to try next. Any ideas.Chris
QuoteThere is a new driver in the Windows 10 ADK called "WofADK".After starting and attaching it to the destination volume, wimlib can apply in wimboot and compact mode on Windows 7 and 8.x, too.

QuoteYou may use the Windows Registry to modify the driver update preference instead.Tap on the Windows-key, type regedit and hit enter to open the Registry Editor.You may receive an UAC prompt which you need to accept.Navigate to the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DriverSearchingLocate the Dword SearchOrderConfig underneath it. It determines the download driver software from Windows Update preference.If you set it to 0, you block driver updates.If you set it to 1, you set it to download driver updates automatically.If you set it to 2, driver software is installed if it is not found on the system (this may not work anymore in Windows 10).Double-click on the preference and change its value.Restart the PC afterwards.

Quote from: edkiefer on November 22, 2015, 05:40:42 PMMS pulled Nov 1511 update from MediaCreation tool and WU.Edit; let me explain the WU part , I think you still can get 1511 if you already have 10240 .I have not updated and my win10 update folder content had a setup.exe with 10240 originally, last week when 1511 came out my WU listed Win10 version 1511 with a setup.exe version of 1511 , but now it back to original 10240 one.So I think maybe now you upgrade to 10240 and then WU will give you 1511 over time, that's my guess, info is weak now on this.Edit2 ; As of 11/25/15 WU now shows 1511 available.
Quote from: chris635 on November 27, 2015, 09:55:14 AMDo you guys have the Calculator.exe running? This starts on it's own. I don't have it set to run in the background. It usually starts about 15 min. after reboot.
Quote from: MicroY on December 04, 2015, 04:17:52 PMIs anyone else missing their calculator on Windows 10. I just upgraded and can't find the calculator, where is it?
QuoteThis issue occurs because of changes in the way that Service Control Manager cleanly shuts down user services. Specifically, a code-handling session shutdown may terminate a process early.
