hmmm, I just use the windows search to find any setting faster than you can remember where in win7 i bet.
Amen to that!!! That's one of the features that I'd have given my eye teeth for in earlier Windows versions. And it allows for all sorts of variants for a given setting.hmmm, I just use the windows search to find any setting faster than you can remember where in win7 i bet.
Your tone in the entirety of your post was refreshingly balanced and lacking in the raving, "It's all the fault of Satan Microsoft!," that's so common when this sort of thing happens. And it's happened to anyone who works with computers for decades on at least a few occasions.still, that was a crook deal, that was. thanks MS... sigh... but i do realize they cannot test every use case, everyone has limited resources--those limits will depend on many factors i won't discuss here.
excellent post. I agree with what is said here, and, if anyone does have the issue I had? there is a solution that does NOT involve the format/reinstall route! They have a Compatibility Manager that can turn that check off so you can use VMware.Your tone in the entirety of your post was refreshingly balanced and lacking in the raving, "It's all the fault of Satan Microsoft!," that's so common when this sort of thing happens.

My only comment is that even when it does, unless it's the result of a bug for which Microsoft has taken ownership and the blame, it's never entirely clear where the fault lies. Things can happen on even the best maintained systems that are unanticipated flukes that can break normal processes, including updates.
I've had several of these incidents myself over the span of 35 plus years, but in my cases it was definitely never clear what the root cause of the issue was, only that no solution besides "nuke and pave" could ever be found (and, boy, do I look before ever resorting to "nuke and pave").
Most of the time, if Microsoft is at fault, the issue is very widespread and hits the tech press and, sometimes, even the popular press (e.g., the "let's nuke all the user's data" debacle at the rollout of Version 1809). But my experience, both personally and professionally, is that most issues that occur are idiosyncratic to the specific machine in question, rather than something that can be found happening everywhere.
This pattern exists without regard to hardware and operating system as well. Some things are screw-ups on the part of the OS maker and maintainer, without question. Lots of others, though, either are not or cannot definitively be lain at their feet.
I would update to 1903, MIcrosoft allow you to just right click uninstall more apps from just the app list.I mostly want to remove the xbox, camera, cortana, notes and other bloatware that I don't use. I'm using Windows 10 (1809) for some time so it's not a fresh install. Can I still remove them safe (without random reboots, stop working programs, errors and so on) without reinstall of Windows? Shoud I use PowerShell or is better a program(i.e DWS)? Thanks!
I thought 1903 separated Cortana and Search into individual services?I would update to 1903, MIcrosoft allow you to just right click uninstall more apps from just the app list.
Removing cortana also removes search, since they both use the same service. But in 1903 you can hide the taskbar icon so i mostly ignore Cortana.
You can uninstall Xbox via right click now.
This shows how to remove many built in apps via powershell - https://www.techsupportall.com/uninstall-built-apps-windows-10/
Not exactly. See: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/124150-hide-show-cortana-button-taskbar-windows-10-a.htmlI thought 1903 separated Cortana and Search into individual services?
I had a NVIDIA driver crash problem in win7 whovh got fixed in win10totally agree with you on that one
I am still running win7 on my gaming desktop
while using a win10 laptop for browsing
Windows 10 is now more like Youtube and Facebook, full of crap and ads even though I tried to disable the appstore and made it look more like Win7 but after the last update the appstore is back again....
Its like running an OS infected with tons of adware
Sandbox just kills VMware, disable it and it works.so an update to 1903 makes it so you can't run vmware again. This time I just used the fix this time.
- You can blame people who never run updates for this. When people stave off updates for years, it causes more issues. However most updates can be deferred in 10.Windows 10 is the worst windows I have ever used in my life
I am very disappointed in the path Microsoft has chosen
I dislike the following:
The frequent notfication to upgrade from previous versions of windows
The automatic windows update and the fact that we can't choose not to install it the way we want
The Telemetry they collect is definitely personally identifiable even on basic in settings
The nagging to set up internet and a Microsoft account twice during installation
When installing at some point it says "leave everything to us"
They force us to upgrade by limiting office 2019, DirectX 12, microsoft store games and Xbox integration to windows 10
The removal of aero and in its place is the metro style themes
They made it harder to setup local accounts now it's called domain
High CPU usage, network usage spikes,
EVERY windows 10 update causes more bugs
Blue screens are normal in windows 10
Lower compatibility with older windows apps
Note: this post may be edited to add more things to the list
Thank you for your time
Microsoft does not provide an option to completely disable telemetry.- Telemetry can be disabled
But trying to hide the option to opt-out of this is not something I support.- We are in 2019 in a highly connected world. The mass majority of people with a PC have high speed internet. Having the ability to make it easier when running setup makes sense.
I loved aero from the start. XP has never looked good, but it is nostalgic.- People hated Aero when it first launched. Now they "love it". Just like everyone hated XP and its design and now they "miss it".
I don't agree with you- You can blame people who never run updates for this. When people stave off updates for years, it causes more issues. However most updates can be deferred in 10.

- Microsoft is by no means required to write modern software for archaic OSes.
- People hated Aero when it first launched. Now they "love it". Just like everyone hated XP and its design and now they "miss it".
- I setup local accounts all the time. Its not that hard.
- Never had and CPU usage issues or network usage issues on over 300 Windows 10 systems deployed
- You think 8, 7 or XP were any better? Plenty of updates caused bugs in them as well. It is not new at all.
- BSoD are not normal in 10. They are mostly caused by hardware issues. I have only had one kind of BSoD on my home built system, one due to an unstable overclock. Otherwise I have never had a BSoD on that system.
- XP was the first Windows consumer based OS to support NTFS. Once people moved to it FAT32 applications no longer worked. You can't expect Microsoft to make sure all software ever always works with a newer OS.
There is no option, no. However it can be done:Microsoft does not provide an option to completely disable telemetry.

See above. I didn't say everyone just that in general Aero was not loved.I don't agree with you
I know how to set up local accounts
I loved aero from start
Microsoft forces windows updates and those can cause more bugs and bsod
Maybe because you have high speed internet it doesn't mean most people with A PC has high speed. And some of us have limited data.
Microsoft is using bandwidth to install crappy games forcefully. I have fixed it
Telemetry can't be disabled
