I'm asking this question in the context of a satellite internet service with expensive download limits... If you just accept all the recommended updates for Windows 10 (creator's update, security etc) for a single Home Edition machine how many Gigabytes will that represent in a typical 12 month period? Eg: I'm thinking maybe 5 gig for one major update plus maybe an average of 500 meg/month other stuff?

We have a two small office locations with a total of 4 computers. We are looking for a way to make some security changes in the office in an inexpensive way. What we would like to do is: - Allow only the chrome brower to be active - restrict browsing ability to only allowed websites - Allow access to a folder on the desktop with pertanent files they need - remote control access for logging in and assisting when the need arises - disable installation of any software - disable dowloading from any browser Any thoughts on this would be …

I have been experiencing a load last solution loaded problem with VS2017 where it works sometimes and sometimes it doesn.t. Mostly it doesn't. After much research it that are a couple of things that can trigger this, but I can't verify it. I think it is a BUG intorduced by Microsoft. VS2010 nevehjad tyhis p[roblem, nor VS2015. Here's what I discovered: 1. If you don't make any changes to your project it won't automatically re-load it the next time, even thiough you told it to, requiring you to manually ask it to load. 2. Some unknown possible quirk of VS2017. …

Hello all, My enterprise just released Windows 10 on one of our domains. Using the previous Windows 7, we were able to sysprep a copy of the OS pulled down from SCCM by imaging a workstation with a task sequence. Continuing with that practice on Windows 10 has presented some issues. I have worked through the sysprep issues, but when attempting to boot the workstation using one of the replicated HDD's, we run into issues. #1: Upon initial bootup we get an error stating that the installation could not be "configured". To continue, restart the workstation. We were able to …

It blocks every attempt to modify any file anywhere. I give Steam and all its subsidiary .exes permission and then it says that there is no permission to modify 'Documents'. I just bought the darned machine to game with and it is freaking driving me nuts. Any suggestions on where to go to fix this?

My brother has a Windows 10 laptop. I use Linux so I'm a little out of the loop when it comes to Windows. He's having problems and wants me to wipe it out and re-install it. Will I need to load the OS onto a USB drive first? If so where and how do I get to that menu? Or is it more likely to work like a tablet where everything can web wiped out and re-installed from the interface with no additional hardware needed? Thanks.

I recently reinstalled Windows 10 on my laptop, since then it has been randomy not sleeping properly. After I had shut the lid of the laptop, I'd come back and find the laptop was 'on', as in the fan was running very quietly, the power lights and hard drive lights were on, but the screen appeared to be off. Pressing buttons or touching the screen did nothing, I had to turn it off by pressing the power. At first I didn't pay much attention to when this was happening, and I assumed some software setting was waking up my computer, …

I'm at the cottage for the summer. Out here I have a metered connection and I try to keep under 3 gig per month (or I have to pay extra). Until this year that hasn't been a problem. This year, however, I have Windows 10. With Windows 7 I could disable Windows Updates until I returned home to my glorious no-cap connection. Not so with 10. Even though I was current with all my updates before coming here, within a week I had blown through 3.14 gig. Checking under Settings -> Network & Internet -> Data Usage -> Usage Details …

Here's a handy tip I haven't seen documented anywhere. If you have an Explorer window open, do the following 1. Click in the address bar to the right of the address so that the entire address is highlighted/selected 1. Type `cmd` in the address bar so that it replaces the address 1. Press ENTER A command shell will be openened at the folder that was displayed in the Explorer window.

About two months ago, the icon for one of my external USB hard drives (that I have been using for over a year) turned from the drive icon to a document icon. I can access the drive and it behaves like a hard drive in all situations. My hard disk utility recognizes it as a hard drive and declares that it is in good health. I use Windows 10 Pro (came with desktop PC) with three external USB hard drives for the bulk of my data: a 2TB Seagate, a 2TB Western Digital and a 5TB Seagate (primarily for local …

Hello, I am running MS Windows 10 and usually use Chrome as my browser on my HP Envy Laptop. Currently there is an icon that is planted in the upper right of my screen that is always on top. It appears as an alien looking green cyclops wearing a tuxedo. He is holding up one arm in the air as if to say..."Hey there!" Anyhow, it's driving me nuts because I cannot click on it, I have not installed any new software, and I cannot move or remove it. My laptop is otherwise running fine. I took a screen shot …

I am currently living in California and I periodically RDP to my home computer in NY. I'm not quite sure how this happened, but from the last time I logged in a few days ago, to today, my user account has been mysteriously deleted?! Perhaps Windows Update did something flaky? I have no idea! I have access to a different administrator account that I'm able to log into (user: Dani), but the Users folder for that user is a clean slate. I am able to access the Users folder for the user I usually log in as (used to be …

I thought this was only me, but apparently there are other users who have noticed that somewhere in the last few Microsoft Updates, the option to set a wi-fi connection as metered has been removed. Fortunately, you can still set/unset this option from the command line. For details, and a vbScript option to make it idiot proof please see [this thread](https://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/microsoft-windows/threads/506590/windows-10-can-t-access-metered-connection#post2211737). This may also work for Ethernet (cabled) interfaces although I have not tried it because I never use a cabled connection.

In order to further (artificially) inflate the number of Windows 10 installations, Microsoft is now showing the following pop-up on some users' computers: ![Screenshot-2015-12-16-at-12.53_.29-1200x755_.png](/attachments/large/3/3839d95fb85c8dd55d9a5e7126ccd09c.png "align-center") And even more heavy-handed, some users are getting the following: ![CWPDV8CUwAEhcpT-1.png](/attachments/large/3/c264f5f5dd97ed178e5f669d8e56459d.png "align-center") Smart users will realize that they can always click **X** and just close the window. Smart users are also aware of the awesome [GWX Control Panel](http://ultimateoutsider.com/downloads/) which, until recently, allowed users to permananently disable the Windows 10 upgrade notices. Microsoft is now silently resetting the **AllowOSUpgrade** setting as often as once a day. So even if you have stated that you do not …

What it says on the tin. Assume that every easily-googled effort to fix Windows 10 has failed and rollback attempts have failed. Assume I have access to a PE/LiveCD. Assume that Power -> Shift+Restart -> Troubleshoot ->??? is useless to me. (This is quite a unique situation!) Assume that I still have the Windows.old file. Assume that I really don't want to reinstall from scratch. With these assumptions in mind, how do I MANUALLY rollback to Windows?

At a recent conference, Microsoft said that the switch to allow Secure Boot to be turned off would be optional. "Hardware can be Designed for Windows 10 and can offer no way to opt out of the Secure Boot lock down." The presenter did not touch on whether OEMS can or should provide support for adding custom certificates. Has anyone heard any more about this?
