To answer the question in the title, I must tell you that no one knows for sure. Since we Fast Ring Insiders jumped a build to test preview versions of version 20H1, still a year away, the Slow Ring users who should be testing 19H2 have not seen a single build. At the same time,
We’ve all seen the dreaded Recovery screen or another error message telling that PC could not boot. Sometimes, nothing is shown, just a blank black screen. Common method is to try to boot to Windows Recovery Console either from USB install media or WinPE and let Windows try to repair the boot records. I have
You can always find ISO files at Microsoft’s Windows Insider Preview downloads page, but you must follow the news to determine when MS offers new Win10 editions there.
This week was quite quiet, mostly because Microsoft’s E3 2019 Expo was held in Los Angeles. New Windows Insider Fast Ring build The Windows Insider team released build 18917 to the Fast Ring on June 12. This build presents a new method for Delivery Optimization, allowing uses to limit bandwidth used by Windows Update and
Lots of users — including yours truly — are reporting Event Viewer failures after installing the latest 1809 and 1903 Cumulative Updates from June’s Patch Tuesday earlier this week. Some users who’ve defined custom views already in Event Viewer may experience this failure immediately. Others may experience the failure when they try to open custom
In a Windows Marketing Field Advisory post, dated yesterday June 15, Microsoft announced that Windows To Go is now deprecated: Windows To Go is no longer being developed. This feature in the Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Education editions enables the creation of a Windows To Go workspace that can be started from a
Here’s an interesting note from the Windows Support team. Dated June 11, 2019, it coincides with the “Patch Tuesday” updates for Windows 10 that month. The title explains things: “Some Bluetooth devices may fail to pair or connect after applying June 11, 2019 or later updates.” In simpler terms, this means that recent security updates
Browsing the MSN News app (UK edition), I recently saw a “story” about Windows 10 Pro licenses being available for $13. Before you post an angry comment asking why didn’t I blur the name of this “company” in the screenshot below to protect their privacy, I have my reasons, as you will see later on
Earlier this year — April 7, 2019 to be specific — MS announced PowerShell 7. Earlier editions of this development fork had been called “PowerShell Core” to distinguish it from the built-in version included with Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016. But with the introduction of PowerShell 7, MS wants to foster what it calls
Microsoft officially proclaimed they will deprecate the native Windows Backup when it released the Fall Creators Update (version 1709) back in October, 2017 (source). The company also recommended that users switch to third party imaging and backup tools instead. In fact, the Windows Backup utility, although still present in version 19H1, is not and never
New Fast + Skip Release 18912 20H1 On Wednesday (June 5), Windows Insider team released Fast Ring build 18912. This build contains no new features, but fixes a number of bugs. See all fixes and known issues on TenForums. Azure and Oracle join clouds As we explained here on Win10.guru, Oracle databases and applications can
Because the US government has banned US companies from doing business with Huawei, that means the company’s PCs (which run Windows) and mobile devices (which run Android) all need a new and different OS. Huawei plans to build its own.
I appreciate t that we Windows Insiders, as well as those using general releases, are allowed to give feedback whenever we want to, on any subject. The Feedback Hub app is an excellent innovation: making it into an integral part of the Windows 10 user experience is a wise decision. When I upgrade to a
A few days ago I wrote about my efforts in upgrading a Windows Insider build from 18898 to 18908 (full story). Despite several successful upgrades to new Insider builds beforehand, that upgrade failed every time. I tried everything I could think of, and everything I know, to fix this, but failed miserably on all attempts.
Seems like China is looking for ways to do its own computing thing, independent of the west. Some of this is being forced upon them, as with Huawei’s recent decision to accelerate development of a Windows replacement code-named Hongmeng (see Week 22 Newsbytes for more info).That move comes as Microsoft has stopped licensing Windows to
Today Microsoft and Oracle announced a cloud interoperability partnership. This allows Oracle software to run on Azure. Here’s a quote from the press release: Enterprises can now seamlessly connect Azure services, like Analytics and AI, to Oracle Cloud services, like Autonomous Database. By enabling customers to run one part of a workload within Azure and
What has puzzled me for some time already is how Windows Insider team‘s attitude seems to have changed more and more to “black or white” thinking. Apparently, all those who do not unconditionally love everything they do are haters, trolls. In the beginning, when Gabe Aul was the team lead, criticism was accepted and even
