When Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17672 showed up yesterday morning, I thought I was in for an easy ride. With three horses in that race, only one finished in a reasonable amount of time. Here’s the story…
As I have revealed in several “War Stories” posts here at Win10.Guru, I’ve had major issues with Office 365 running on Windows 10 Insider Preview Skip Ahead builds. On two occasions since January 2018 I’ve thought that I finally had these issues resolved (read more). Alas, both solutions seem to have been pure coincidence. Even now,
Waking up quite early I decided to go to RAI Amsterdam, the venue for the Tech Summit. I got there a few minutes before 8 AM. This turned out to be excellent timing, because I was there exactly when the doors opened. I registered myself, enjoyed the complimentary breakfast and took a stroll around “The
Long and boring journey, thanks to Deutsche Bahn, German Railroads. I have difficulties to understand how they can’t get mobile connectivity to work on their trains. Regardless of the provider, the most heard words from people trying to make a call are “Disconnected again!” The same with mobile data: the Internet becomes useless when connectivity
Years ago, when I was working on a relatively large Help Desk for corporate customers as a Subject Matter Expert, one of my tasks was to write simple “Quick Start” documentation for users.

As I have recounted in a preceding series of posts on this site, starting in mid-January and lasting some few weeks I encountered various weird issues with Office 365.

The pre-show day at the MVP Summit 2018: Day 0 delivers unexpected information, insights, and value. Looks like this is going to be a great conference!
In mid-January I worked through a real fight to get my laptop’s Windows Insider Preview upgraded to build 17074 and then, to get Office 2016 (Enterprise E3 plan) installed. That fight made me write three longish posts about it. If you have 10 minutes to spare, grab a cup or glass of the beverage of
In preparing to inject drivers from Build 17074 into 17083 for deployment, I notice the DriverStore is hugely bloated with nearly 15 GB of Nvidia drivers. DriverStore Explorer rides to the rescue, and I inject about 1.5 GB of drivers instead.
The Internet and the news media have been abuzz with consternation and complaints about Windows 10 lately, but the current state of affairs didn’t really register with me until I saw this statement on TenForums.com today: “I have never hated something that’s not alive as much as I hated windows 10.” This came up in
