With the holiday break over, it’s time to look back over our first year at Win10.guru before starting Year Two. A few years back, I was thinking about a website for advanced Windows users and IT professionals. Quite accidentally (it’s too long a story to tell here), I found myself the proud owner of a catchy
At the end of last week, Microsoft revealed that the Edge browser built into Windows 10 is moving from the EdgeHTML rendering engine to Chromium. This was hardly news to anyone following tech news and Windows 10 development. But just as Windows 10 is quite close to overtaking Windows 7 as the most popular PC
Windows Ten Forums (https://www.tenforums.com) is one of the biggest, if not the biggest Windows 10 forums on the Internet. As I write this, it has over 122,000 members who have posted 1.4 million posts across more than 100,000 threads. Compared to any other Windows site, it is extremely well administrated and moderated. One big difference
Current Insider Preview builds — some released within the past week — still feature a 12/14/2018 expiration date. Though that date is drawing near, it’s inevitable that MS will release a new Preview with a different label and a mid-2019 expiration date before December 14 is upon us.
Gosh! Win10’s been getting beat up a LOT lately, including here at Win10.Guru. That’s one reason why I decided to put forward a more positive post on Win10 today. Sure, Win10 has its problems and its occasional gotchas. But all in all, it’s a capable and powerful OS. Let me explain why I still like
Please notice: This post is fiction, something I would have posted on the Insider Blog had I been a member of the Windows Insider team and authorized to post on their behalf. Of course, I am not able nor allowed to speak for that team. Nothing said in this post actually comes from the Insider
Six weeks after the original launch date, over five weeks after it was pulled back, Microsoft finally re-released Windows 10 version 1809 and Windows Server 2019 yesterday. Here’s a quote from the Windows Experience blog and John Cable, Microsoft’s Director of Program Management, Windows Servicing and Delivery: In early October, we paused the rollout of the
Exactly six weeks ago, on October 2nd, 2018, Microsoft released Windows 10 version 1809, the October update. Half jokingly, I think it might be renamed to Win10 Xmas Update. We all know what happened three days later: this feature upgrade was pulled back. Ed wrote about various issues the upgrade had, so I’ve no reason
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
