Windows 10 annoyances.. (Updated)

The Mail app.. There appears to be no way to remove an account, and no way to bulk delete email that is no longer relevant. If there is a way to do either, I apologise for not looking more into it. If there is no way to do either, please place developers who know something about the older email clients in charge, because the current bunch appear to be partly clueless.. The Lock Screen.. I like the lock screen but for a couple of issues. Issue #1.. On my desktop, time shows as 24hr, but on the smaller screened Netbook, … Continue reading Windows 10 annoyances.. (Updated)

When Windows 10.. (Updated)

won’t do anything, it must be quite annoying. Read the next part slowly.. “I installed Windows 10 on my laptop and desktop. 4 days ago my laptop crashed and won’t even turn on because of an error with Windows 10 and today my desktop stopped working. It won’t open anything associated with Windows 10 nor will it connect to the internet! I am furious! Both my computers are down and useless because of this update and I can’t pay hundreds of dollars for someone to fix it! Plus it’s finals time! I need this fixed today! Can anyone help me????” … Continue reading When Windows 10.. (Updated)

Windows 10 is taking liberties..

.. by uninstalling some utilities, maybe programs too, on the basis of incompatibility, when in actual fact there doesn’t appear to be ANY problem with compatibility. Speccy, a useful ‘what’s in the box’ utility, was removed from my computer, but I put it back. AMD Catalyst Control Center was claimed to be a casualty but I have a version running on my computer still. CPU-Z and CPUID were also claimed to be casualties, but I don’t have either anyway so can’t say for sure. None of the above are even close to catastrophic, but it shows a mean streak in Microsoft … Continue reading Windows 10 is taking liberties..

A complete Windows 10 re-install.. (Updated)

.. and all because of some really stubborn malware picked up yesterday. I am pretty good at removing it 99.99% of the time, but this one stumped me. So, looking to do a clean install for a while, I bit the bullet and backed up the most important data that I would need to re-construct the system, and here I am again.. 🙂 The install went well and passed by fairly quickly, but I have been left with one or two operational issues that I didn’t really have before. Issue #1.. IE11 and Outlook now behave like Edge was doing, that … Continue reading A complete Windows 10 re-install.. (Updated)

Microsoft Edge 0 – Internet Explorer 1.. Final score

Guess who is back using Internet Explorer 11? Yep.. me. I have had enough of Edge appearing in a variety of different sizes every time that I start this PC up or come out of sleep/hibernation. Firefox was given an outing BUT it only shows the name of the website in the current tab. All of the others appear blank. Very strange. So, the old stager wins again despite claims from many that it is crap. I have never thought it was, and until somebody can give me solid proof that it is and that the others are better, I … Continue reading Microsoft Edge 0 – Internet Explorer 1.. Final score

Edge will not stay put.. other stuff doesn’t either..

I use the ‘move’ and ‘size’ on Edge and it pretty much ignores me and does as it likes. It’s actually the only annoyance I have with Edge presently. Will it ever get fixed? I would have more faith if the next issue had ever been fixed, BUT IT HASN’T.. 🙂 See the nice Windows 95 desktop view? See how the icons align neatly down the LEFT side? Well, I have icons just like those, neatly aligned down the LEFT side. It is where they always aligned, and not just in Windows 95. OK, so where are the functions kept in … Continue reading Edge will not stay put.. other stuff doesn’t either..
