As I look back at two years at Win10.Guru, I reflect on successes with the Admin Toolkit and DISM series, and somewhat less enthusiasm for news and musings from readers. I resolve to offer more of interest and engagement in 2020. Happy New Year, All!
Running Windows on a Hyper-V virtual machine can naturally never be as fast as that same version of Windows on host machine’s real physical hardware. However, by tweaking virtual machine settings, you can greatly impact the speed and functionality of a virtual machine. As a Hyper-V enthusiast, I want to share my tips for making
When your Hyper-V host computer is connected to a VPN, virtual machines still use the host’s default connection. They are not connected to the VPN. This is often practical, in fact. Thus, for example, while VPN allows my host to use another geolocation, I can use a virtual machine on that same host for services
I love my Nokia Lumia 925 phone and its Windows Phone 8.1 OS. But even a hardcore enthusiast like me must concede that Windows Phone is history. Wanting to test Android before starting to look for a new phone, I tried several Android emulators. Sadly, I didn’t get a realistic Android experience with any of
I wrote last week about Windows Insider team pushing full feature fast ring upgrades too often, when a simple cumulative update had been enough. This went in even more weird direction on Tuesday this week, when the build 19033 was released. Four fast ring builds in 11 days, each one only containing some bug fixes.
My Nokia Lumia 925 with Windows Phone 8.1 is the best, most reliable smart phone I have ever owned. Unfortunately, now I must find a replacement: Windows Phone and Windows Mobile are dying. In Finland, we have an old saying “I do not need manure, I am not a farmer.” In my case, this equates
Hyper-V has a Quick Create feature, which allows users to create virtual machines from a VHD repository, using virtual hard disks with preinstalled Windows. We covered that earlier here at Win10.guru in this story: Hyper-V Online Gallery: Create a VHD repository But, what if you want to start from scratch, with a new virtual machine
Last weekend, I decided to concentrate on a single mission: Get a desktop installed in any or all of my WSL distros without using X Server or any other third party software installed in Windows, then create a WSL Sandbox for testing purposes. The first goal was the easiest. I got XFCE desktop installed in
Preparing a video for Ten Forums about how to use Macrium viBoot to upgrade Windows 10, I thought I would document that process to show how good Microsoft PowerPoint is at making videos. The best thing is that it is so extremely easy to use PowerPoint to build nice, simple instructional videos. In addition, when
I am a big Hyper-V fan, but even I must admit that running Linux virtual machines within that hypervisor can be problematic. First, enhanced session mode does not work, so changing guest resolution is quite difficult. In addition, Copy & Paste between the Windows host and the Linux guest does not work. One option is
