  1. Microsoft bungling things.....!!! On a 21H2 test system, an update refused to update with various excuses (Retry). Finally just reinstalled Win 10 and all is well (At least for awhile). It's happened 3 times on different PCs in the last couple of years. Just reminds me why my every day computer is not a Windows computer. The good is that I can understand Windows user's challenges.
  2. New crap or same old crap repackaged? Are pieces of MS being bought out by other companies? Browser? Is personal information being gathered and then sold, now the big money maker? Some crap.
  3. On Win 10 Dev 21390, IE browser seems to have turned Edge browser. IE gone?!
  4. When the IE software support team at MS retire, does their product then enter into "product cycle end?" That way, the high priced staff are gone and the new staff are paid much less? (Past experience in a large computer company) (Or work a deal to get your product tested and pay no one to do the testing)
  5. Win 10 21H1 does seem to be usable if you lock down privacy, use non-MS browsers, add blocker extensions, change search engine, use a program to remove left over software debris, only save to PC and use email that doesn't save your emails to profile you. Does seem to need a lot of housekeeping.
  6. Happy to find this topic again. Am Insider testing 12 Win 10 installations over 9 computers. Just "Stay at Home" activity over the last year. Still looking for a version that could be trusted as a main household computer that has minimal c*** in it. Concerned about the invasive personal information gathering capability of W10. Change browser search engine with each new version that comes out. IE 11 is in end of life cycle, maybe good or bad? Am favoring 21H1. Old MacBook still seems to run updates of W10 (21H1) the fastest, so there is a smile here. To offset the c***, have built multiple boot computers. Penta-boot is the latest, 2 XPs, 1 7 and 2 10s. That way will be able to say that the hardware is not the problem if one OS doesn't work and the other OSs do work. Enough c*** for now.
  7. Been away for awhile, but is Win 10 no longer "The Worst C*** Ever"? Just because have 9 computers that have 1 or more Win 10 OS's under test hasn't changed product that much. Newest computer has XP Pro, Win 7 Pro and Win 10 Home on it. Just for comparison testing.
  8. 'Meet Now' icon on Taskbar: Use 'Remove the Meet Now icon' option to get rid of it. Using Run, type in gpedit.msc Local Group Policy Editor comes up. Under User Configuration, select Administrative Templates. Then select Start Menu and Taskbar. Under Start Menu and Taskbar, select Remove the Meet Now icon. Under Remove the Meet Now icon, select Enabled, then Apply and OK. Close the Editor. Restart, the icon 'Meet Now' will be gone. This procedure came from an Online search.
  9. Time is telling. 2004, 32 bit, using the combination of IE11, Favorites and a Logitech Bluetooth mouse to select items, a "Black Screen" event has occurred several times. The only recovery of this event so far has been the 10 second manual button power down. This followed by a normal single press of the manual power on button brings a normal power on sequence to start Windows 10. "Black Screen" events have been noted in Insider testing over the last year. However, this is my first experience with this situation. Oh yes, the fertilizer seems to still have traces of crap.
  10. Well Version 2004 shipped yesterday! Feature Update Version 2004, OS Build 190.264. Updated MacBook today with no issues in 3 hours. Windows 10 runs quite well on the Apple! Wow, some sweet fertilizer! Time will tell. And the temperate is up in the 110 degree range.
  11. Have you seen 2004 show up? We're past the 4th month and it's a no show here. Maybe it will show up in the 20th month? Maybe it's too hot here. It may need to be refrigerated to ship? Crap protocol?
  12. Decided to try Edge update because of your comment. But the results were dismal. Windows 10 quit working normally. Also, couldn't restart or shutdown Win 10. used ctl-alt-del to log off. Uninstalled New Edge and Win 10 worked normally again. However, IE11 has worked great and did not hurt Win 10. Too bad MS didn't just stay with IE11 and not waste resources with the Edge of the abyss. Talk about crap......... Waterfox and Firefox are still the browers that just work. Even CLIQZ runs well.
  13. Just wait for 2004. It should be out sometime during the lockdown. Some crap just takes a long time to appear.
  14. Same issue on the MacBook trying to use VMWare. Problem was in sharing the computer hardware, just was too slow with the two OSs running at the same time. A solution was to use Apple BootCamp which transfers all hardware from one OS to the other. However, had to install Win 7 first in BootCamp and then update to Win 10 (MacBook is 12 years Old). BootCamp is now running Win 10 Pro, 1909, 18363.815. BootCamp Win10 runs faster than PC Win 10 in my experience.
  15. Win 10 1909 seems to be much more stable than 1607. 1607 may be unsupported by now? The Apple MacBook is running Version 1909, OS Build 18363.720, under BootCamp, Win 10 Pro. This Win 10 is running quite well on this old Apple computer. But it is still just a test computer to keep track of Win 10. More, a sweet grade of fertilizer.
