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.
On TenForums.com where I volunteer as a team member, we have replaced Skype for Business with Microsoft Teams Free for our regular TenForums Live webcasts. These webcasts are online meetings, open to all TenForums (TF) members and guests alike. I set up these meetings using my O365 Enterprise account and credentials, then share a link
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
As I work the various topic areas at TenForums.com, I can’t help but notice an occasional undertone of outright paranoia, plus occasional distrust and hostility toward Microsoft (MS). Because I spend at least an hour or two a day there, at least six days a week, I see it all the time. Kari and I
Earlier this week, Microsoft and Canonical made a giant leap forward in bringing Linux to the Windows desktop. A pre-installed, pre-configured Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS virtual hard disk is now available in the Hyper-V Quick Create Gallery, and can be set up in minutes. No installation is required.

Late last year, we kicked off a series of articles called The (Windows) Admin’s Toolkit. Since then, Win10.Guru has issued 9 installments. This story, about MiniTool’s Power Data Recovery (MTPDR) will be the tenth. Unlike the previous item – the MiniTool Partition Wizard (MTPW) – the free version of this program is not fully functional.
In seeking to support its vision of a modern desktop based on Windows 10 and Office 365 ProPlus, Microsoft announces services and an extended support time window for Enterprise and Education customers on feature upgrades.
Microsoft increases license and device count limits for subscribers to Office 365 Home and Personal, enabling more users to run the software on many more devices.
For months now, I’d been reading about a new Windows Store app called the Realtek Audio Console. The earliest mention I can find online is in April, 2018, when it shows up in Dell’s Driver pages as an exe file. I’ve seen some discussion of this on TenForums on and off for months, and read
There’s nothing in the UEFI specifications that prevents booting from an NTFS formatted USB flash drive. In fact, this so-called limitation is entirely artificial. Luckily, most modern computers can boot from a single-partition NTFS formatted USB flash drive. Thus, one can indeed install Windows 10 from a custom WIM image larger than 4 GB, which is
