The more that you read, the worse it all gets, but as I see it, the picture is quite clear. SO.. After July 29th, assuming that your PC was running Windows 7 or 8 from the hard drive, and you find yourself running Windows 10 from the VERY SAME hard drive, you have a free… Continue reading FREE Windows 10..
There are webpages which proclaim best this and best that and this one deals with email clients. http://bestwindows10apps.com/best-email-clients-windows-10/ There is no ‘best’. It is all down to whatever suits you. I grew up on Windows Outlook Express, am used to the setup, general feel etc, and am not dumb enough to dislike Microsoft and have… Continue reading Email clients for Windows 10..
and it still doesn’t go away. I give in. I’ll upgrade to Windows 10 Really, I promise to do it as soon as possible. I like Windows 10 and have promised. What else can I do to stop GWX appearing in the N.A.? Nothing simple works and it is beginning to annoy,, truly,,
For your information.. A nice article here on the Windows 10 upgrade process. Give it a good read through because you are going to lose some of your older stuff. Microsoft persist in quoting this.. Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster processor or SoC RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) for 32-bit or 2 GB for 64-bit… Continue reading Windows 10 Upgrading..
In general: Windows 10 is ok, better than ok actually. My Netbook was one stodgy, slow Windows 7 performer, but now it boots quicker, resumes quicker, just seems like a new machine. It will never be a top performer, but I am impressed by how Windows 10 works on it. It has shown just how… Continue reading Ready for 10? You should be..
Coming to a notification area near you: It’s unobtrusive and you can’t click on it by accident and start the Windows 10 upgrade immediately because that is NOT how it works. Can you spot the ‘extra’ which appeared on my NA? Yes, it is the Windows 8/10 logo, and this is what it looks like… Continue reading A gentle reminder.. Updated..
.. and the Netbook is still ok: It is also running the Microsoft Solitaire Collection preview and Microsoft Office 2016 preview, and everything works very well.. 10130 is all about cleaning and polishing, so no big new features in this one, not that I have seen much of what I would call BIG. Features like… Continue reading Windows 10 Preview 10130..
Production machine maintenance: The X Port on the CM690 gave up on me, so now the best feature of the case, and the reason for buying the case, will cost more than $50 to fix. This is because the offending circuit board in the top of the case has given out and CoolerMaster only supply… Continue reading This week @ TCG..
is up and running on the NB250. To be honest. I don’t care what else happens. This is just about an aging Toshiba Netbook and getting more life out of it. It gives hope to other machines of 2010 vintage, low-powered like the Toshiba or better stuff like my production machine and others. Obviously, or… Continue reading Windows 10 preview 10122..
What I would like in the next build: Responsive power plan settings. Regardless of how I set it up, Windows 10 does as it likes. Apps and programs that pin to the Start menu, NOT the task bar. An end to the ridiculous Windows Update process where presently it is impossible to hide updates that… Continue reading Windows 10.. the next build..
A wrong assumption: For a while now, I have been making a wrong assumption about the ‘number of processors’ setting in MSCONFIG. I honestly believed that it was a throwback or compatibility issue with multi-socket motherboards which used to be more freely available than they are now. In the old days before multi-core CPUs, not… Continue reading MSCONFIG – How many processors..
