  • Never heard of such a thing, nor experienced it. Are you using a Microsoft account to log in as opposed to a local account? Live accounts do have a password expiry policy option you can turn on, ...
  • I know Reflect is very reliable, but that doesn't matter as it is besides the point. Disabling restore points gains you nothing other than a few gigs of harddisk space. If it works, it is very ...
  • Frankly, I don't see what these things have to do with each other. Disabling restore point does nothing for you other than making sure there is one option less to quickly recover from an error or ...
  • I would not make that assumption so quick without additional information. Mechanical harddisks rarely fail, and if they do it is generally real soon (within a couple of weeks/months) after ...
  • I don't mean a search app, just searching from start (or the taskbar search (win+s), which is the same thing. with those settings above. Faster than any 3rd program, which also means an additional ...
  • Why? DOS commands were abbreviations of what you wanted to do, truncated if necessary to fit in 8 characters. It only gets difficult and counterintuitive if you all of a sudden start changing ...
  • The one thing I do the most starting programs or finding stuff is not point and click, it is to just hit the Windows key once (it pops out the start menu) and then just start typing. So for a ...
  • That's funny because all objective benchmarks demonstrate that W10 performance is on par with or exceeding W7 performance for all tasks, be it productivity, editing, , storage, gaming or synthetic ...
  • Have you tried running Windows 10 on your Macbook through Bootcamp? My 2012 rMBP is running W10 exclusively these day, and its performance is pretty amazing as a Windows machine. Sure, battery ...
  • The all too familiar "I don't need to test this as it always worked and we didn't touch anything related to this". :D Random testing is good and for that MS forces telemetry to full for the Insider ...
  • I'd argue it is quite impossible, even with automated testing to test every variation possible on the Windows platform, regression or otherwise. to flush out issues. I'd also argue that through ...
  • Been running it from the insider beta channel since 2004 was released. Only had one issue and that was related to the insider program itself and resolved itself later with a subsequent update. ...
  • Another vote for emclient. Really good program.
  • Even if it noticeable, it is still questionable. I run an overclocked 5960X on the X99 platform. That's a 4 year old CPU, but it is still fast even at high workloads. I mean do a few seconds or a ...
  • There is always something new, better, faster, shinier just around the corner in PC-land. If you keep on waiting for it, you're still waiting 10 years from now when you could have enjoyed a ...
  • When you are doing digital output, all you need is a player that is able to output the quality of your files. If you are listening to 320kbps MP3's @ 44.1k, 16b any player will do and there will ...
  • Excuse me? Where do you see that listed as one of the features mmarian likes so much about CS? I never said CS doesn't have features Windows doesn't have standard, though you can have nested ...
  • I know and I know CS. But if someone lists their reasons for why they are so happy about using CS and none of them are related to the purpose of function of CS, which is to change the UI to ...
  • Where do I say there is a hardware requirement for HDD's to use binary? I am just saying computers used binary and they used it everywhere for consistency. You are falsifying history by stating ...
  • There is absolutely nothing you say here you cannot do with standard Windows UI since, well, Windows 95. Or maybe 98. So what is your reasoning to use Classic Shell and add a potentially less ...
