Insider Preview 18950 Brings Possible WiFi Issues

I encountered some odd wireless network behaviors in Insider Preview build 18950. They were fixed in the successor build — 18956 — at the same time MS told the world they were changing “Network status” in the Network & Internet Settings page. Caution: Programmers at work!

Toolkit Item: ShowKeyPlus

Given that Windows Activation is almost (I repeat: almost) foolproof in Windows 10, there isn’t much reason to find, know or use OS keys anymore.

Win10 1903 RDP Connection May Provoke Black Screen

Certain PCs — especially those with older Intel internal GPUs — may experience a black screen when using Windows 10’s built-in Remote Desktop (RDP) facility. This applies to PCs acting as RDP servers and those acting as RDP clients, according to MS.

Getting from BOT to UASP

Weird! On a newer Z170 mobo PC I can’t access my dual drive dock via UASP; on an older Dell XPS 2720 it works without a hitch. Looking for clues!
