  1. KB4571744 fixed the defrag issue that was occurring, along with many other issues. Addresses an issue that causes the Optimize Drives dialog to incorrectly report that previously optimized drives need to be optimized again.
  2. You can get the Update Assistant and Media Creation Tool in the Anti-Malware Toolkit! The Windows 10 May 2020 Update has started to become available to customers around the world as a free update. Since the beginning of this year, we have seen the world significantly change all around us. People, families and businesses are adjusting to new ways of working, learning and connecting. For many, our dining rooms have become home offices, our living rooms have turned into classrooms, and our kitchens social gathering spots and breakrooms. Amidst these changes, our needs to connect wi
  3. Some time between now and the next month, we should be getting the next major update. Windows 10 2004, also known as 20H1. It's been rumored that it will be the May 2004 update. A few people are saying it needs to be delayed because of COVID-19, though I don't believe that will or should happen.
  4. Very much looking forward to this! I use DNS over TLS on my router, and the fact that this will also be built into the OS itself soon is a huge step forward. https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Networking-Blog/Windows-will-improve-user-privacy-with-DNS-over-HTTPS/ba-p/1014229
  5. Windows 10 1903 has been released to the world. People have been upgrading eagerly to this new release. If you missed the frontpage article, there's a lot of changes for 1903. Here's a recap! Speed Improvements (Thanks to Better Spectre Fixes) The news of Spectre shook the industry at the start of 2018. Spectre is a design flaw in CPUs, and it allows programs to escape their restrictions and read other programs’ memory spaces. Microsoft patched Windows to help block Spectre attacks, but the resulting patches reduced your PC’s performance in some scenarios—es
  6. Also known as Windows 10 version 1909, this is the smallest, quickest Windows 10 Update yet. It’s practically just a service pack. To install the update starting later today, head to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update. Click “Check for Updates.” You’ll see a message saying the update is available. Click “Download and install now” to get it. A “Less Disruptive Update” With Fewer Changes Microsoft’s John Cable explains that this update “will be a scoped set of features for select performance improvements, enterprise features, and quality enhancements.” In other
  7. The consumer and business editions are available.

  8. My laptop OS is Win 10. When I run Auslogics Disk Defrag, it spends the vast majority of its run time scanning files in subfolders under C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\. . . A check of the files blows ones mind. I didn't count the files, but my guess is that there are easily 10,000, maybe more. A lot of them are listed as "manifest" files. And they're apparently compressed (right-clicking does NOT give you the usual "Properties" or "Delete", only "Extract" or "Copy"). I have never seen anything like this in earlier versions of Windows. What are they? Can I delete them (the newest of
  9. Have a Toshiba Satellite (P755). OS is Win 10. Synaptics touchpad works for moving pointer around, and left and right buttons work, but scrolling doesn't. Settings have multi-finger scrolling enabled. Have tried unchecking multi-finger AND single-finger (in the border areas) scrolling, then re-enabling both. Does not fix the problem. Any suggestions?
  10. The next big update coming to Windows 10 will be called the Creative Update. The codename it's referred to in addition to the Creative Update is Redstone 2. There's also a changelog of known and discovered updates in the Insider builds, which you can view on ChangeWindows. Some interesting features coming: Built-in support for USB Audio 2.0 For Pro, Enterprise and Education, the range for Active Hours has been enlarged to 18 hours, up from 12 On devices with more than 3.5 GB memory, service hosts will be split into individual processes When one process fail
  11. On August 2nd, Microsoft released the Anniversary Update for Windows 10 and when the bits arrived on computers around the globe, it brought with it new features and also broke webcams for millions of consumers. If your webcam has stopped functioning since the release of the Anniversary update, you are not alone but the good news is a fix is coming, hopefully in September. Microsoft made a significant change with the release of Windows 10 and support for webcams that is causing serious problems for not only consumers but also the enterprise. The problem is that after installing the update,
  12. Microsoft released Windows 10's Anniversary Update last week, but it's already getting ready to unveil new features for its next major update. The software giant has started testing its "Redstone 2" update to Windows 10, with an initial build available for Windows Insiders testing public beta copies. The new update doesn't have any big new features for public testers yet, as Microsoft is in the early stages of making structural improvements to its OneCore shared code of Windows across PCs, tablets, phones, HoloLens, Xbox, and IoT. The first few builds available for testing "may include mo
  13. With the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, aka Windows 10 version 1607, released earlier this week, it's time to look forward to what's next. Windows 10 has multiple release tracks to address the needs of its various customer types. The mainstream consumer release, the one that received the Anniversary Update on Tuesday, is dubbed the Current Branch (CB). The Current Branch for Business (CBB) trails the CB by several months, giving it greater time to bed in and receive another few rounds of bug fixing. Currently the CBB is using last year's November Update, version 1511. In about four months
  14. Now that the Windows 10 Anniversary Update has been sent out what are everyone's thoughts? How did the overall process go? How long did it take? Have you encountered any issues, and if so, what issues?
  15. Starting today the Windows 10 Anniversary Update will begin rolling out for our customers around the world. The Windows 10 Anniversary Update is full of new features and innovations that bring Windows Ink and Cortana to life; a faster, more accessible and more power-efficient Microsoft Edge browser; advanced security features; new gaming experiences and more. The Windows 10 Anniversary Update will start rolling out to Windows 10 Mobile phones in the coming weeks. The Windows 10 Anniversary Update is being rolled out to Windows 10 PCs across the world in phases starting with the newer mach
  16. The Windows 10 Anniversary Update – the largest update to the PC operating system since its big revamp in 2015 – began rolling out to consumers on Tuesday. More than 350m devices have been upgraded since Windows 10 was released in a Microsoft campaign that bombarded computer owners with invitations to get the new version for free, pushed it out to computers automatically and installed it without users realising. The Anniversary Update sees Microsoft’s virtual assistant Cortana become more central, being used as part of any search, while a new feature called Windows Ink enables users
  17. Microsoft's year-long offer of a free upgrade to Windows 10 has now finished, albeit with a couple of loopholes still to be closed. Since the deal was launched last year there are now more than 350 million devices running the new operating system, mostly thanks to the offer. It's not especially surprising that users have quicker to upgrade to Windows 10 than earlier versions: Microsoft was giving it away for free, after all. Microsoft's offer was, to an extent, bowing to the inevitable: since the rise of the smartphone with regular free mobile OS upgrades, consumers increasingly
  18. A year after Microsoft introduced its free upgrade offer to Windows 10 for PCs running Windows 7 or Windows 8, the company finally put an end to this year-long opportunity last Friday. Microsoft’s significant upgrade push didn’t avoid some controversy during the past year, as many users complained that its Windows 10 upgrade prompts have been too aggressive and confusing, but there is no denying that the Windows 10 launch has been an overall success for the company. On June 29, the Redmond giant announced that Windows 10 was already running on 350 million devices (including PCs, phones, X
  19. Seeing as another major round of updates to Windows 10 is about to take place next week it only makes sense to see some fear-inducing articles. In fairness, the articles themselves aren't that bad (see PC World) as the content mostly explains away the so-called controversy. Nonetheless in the age of "I only read the headline" things like "You can't turn off Cortana in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update" with the fine print "...but you can lessen her awareness" does a disservice to the community. Normally, I ignore such articles as in June we wrote a detailed guide called "How to turn
  20. It's just two days until July 29th, the last day that you can get the Windows 10 upgrade free from Microsoft. The free offer is currently available to Windows 7 and Windows 8 users. The upgrade process is simple, though a bit time consuming. It can take a few hours for the entire upgrade process. However, if you do the upgrade process through Windows Update you will have the latest version - 1511 10586.494 - which is current until August 2nd when the Anniversary Update is scheduled to arrive. Your Windows key will be converted to a Windows 10 key through Digital Entitlement. In the future
  21. We reported earlier on France's demands to Microsoft with regards to bolstering its Windows 10 OS to better protect user data, and ultimately, their privacy. The fact that a watchdog would target Microsoft for collecting too much data probably strikes no one as a surprise, as that very complaint has been one shared by many users since the launch of Microsoft's latest OS. In the complaint, France's Chair of the National Data Protection Commission noted a couple of big issues, from the fact that the PIN code can be entered as many times as an attacker needs it to be and also that certain me
  22. Windows 10 breaches French law by collecting too much personal information from users and failing to secure it adequately, according to the French National Data Protection Commission (CNIL). Some of the privacy failings identified can be remedied by users willing to delve deep into the Windows 10 settings, but one of the commission's gripes is that better privacy should be the default setting, not one users must fight for. CNIL served Microsoft with a formal notice on June 30, giving it three months to comply with the law, but only made it public on Wednesday. The commission
  23. This thread is for everyone to post their thoughts and impressions with Windows 10. So far for me, I've been enjoying the OS. No real issues (though I did a clean install). It's very fast and responsive.
  24. While I have not yet taken the free upgrade to Windows 10, I've been considering it lately. It'd be interesting to see who has upgraded.
  25. Before Microsoft Windows 10, users could customize all the systems sounds to be anything they wanted. Unfortunately, for reasons unbeknownst to the rest of us, Microsoft decided that certain sounds were off limits for customization in Windows 10. For example, you can't change sounds in the control panel for logon, logoff, and shutdown. But you don't have to let Microsoft get away with that, as long as you don't mind an excursion deep into the Windows 10 Registry file. Standard disclaimer: The Windows Registry file is vital to the operation of the Windows operating system. Incorrectly edit
