OK, then. It’s time for a new mini-review in the Admin Toolkit series here at Win10.Guru. First let me start with a disclaimer. If you believe what MS says about gadgets, you should run screaming in the other direction from this great tool built by German developer Helmut Buhler. It’s called 8GadgetPack and I can’t
In a definite sign that a new fork in the Windows 10 development tree is about to form, Microsoft re-opens the Skip ahead (“Skippy”) branch to Insiders.
When my Dell Venue Pro 11 starts balking on upgrades past the 18305 release, I start digging into driver difficulties. No joy, so far, though I can now restart properly.
Having just gone back to check the date, I’m amazed to be reminded the default change to the OS clean-up interval from 30 to 10 days goes back to Version 1607, aka the Anniversary Update.

Developer David Xanatos has done a terrific job of improving and extending the capabilities found in the Windows Update MiniTool in his Windows Update Manager (WuMgr) program. It should be part of an Windows admin’s or power user’s toolkit.
The problem with shooting Windows 10 trouble, alas, is often in knowing where to aim. Case in point: my recent Reliability Monitor shows an error from the Windows Shell Experience. The specific error is labeled MoAppHang. As far as I can find out (and additional reporting data confirms this finding) this means some kind of
