Apps :: Any Way To Roll Back After Refreshing PC

Jan 17, 2016

After some software problems, The fix was to Refresh my PC, despite me selecting "Keep my files" it removed loads of my software including ones I cannot get without a disc,

Is there a way I can roll back to before I did this, since I still have the Windows.old file with all my things in, Do I just Copy and replace my files with the things from Windows.old to the new one or is there a way to roll back completely?

installing all my stuff again is not worth for a temporary fix.

Windows Apps Not Opening After Roll Back To Previous Build

Dec 21, 2015

After experiencing difficulties with the last windows update I decided to roll back to previous working build (10240). Now some of Windows 10's apps are not functioning. If I open e.g. Calculator, Photos or Store, the app's window will flash on the screen for a second or two before closing.

The effected apps also take a different appearance in the Apps & Features section of the settings with the "move" and "uninstall" buttons greyed out and the names being less user friendly, I've attached a screenshot below. Is there are way to get them restored?

Roll Back To Windows 8.1

Sep 26, 2015

I upgraded from windows 8.1 to windows 10. after a month, my system crashed due to inaccessible_boot_device issue. I tried everything, but had to go for a fresh install of windows 10. then came the issue of activation. No matter what i did, it wasnt getting activated. So, now the customer care at HP has asked me to install Windows 8.1 again. and then upgrade.

My question is, should I install Windows 8.1 Single Language itself, as it was my original OS, or can I go for Windows 8.1 Pro. Will Pro dvd have the option of Single Language in it? Media creation tool is not working for me, that is why I'm trying to download Pro via torrent and then install Single Language.

Installation :: Can Only Roll Back To Last Build

Aug 4, 2015

I'm trying to roll back to the OEM Win 7 on this machine. On the setting page "Updates & security" the options under "recovery" did NOT include rolling back to Win 7. The only choice was to roll back to the previous build. I thought perhaps I would have to work my way back to 7 build, by build. I started out with 10041, then 10130, then 10240. I clicked the "Back to previous build, hoping. Well, it went back to 10130 no problem. However, that is it. Going the Setting, Updates& Security route within this roll back of 10130 there is no way to keep going back to finally get back to Win 7.

Aug 22, 2015

So, i absolutely hate windows 10 and MS for making it, so i am more than happy to go back to Windows 8.1. Only problem is, that i cannot.

Roll back option in recovery is gone and i haven't gone for 30 days. So, naturally i went for my trusty old 8.1 ISO that i made, only thing here now is that doesn't work either. I get this: "setup has failed to determine supported install choices" ... So..... What can i do?

Installation :: How To Roll Back To Windows 8.1 From Command Prompt

Aug 17, 2015

I have been running Windows 10 Pro on my HP desktop for overa week with no problems. Over theweekend Windows attempted installing an upgrade; not sure when, but during theupgrade process I received a Critical Process Died BSOD with no error code. All system restarts result in the same error, and I havebeen unable to use Repair, Recovery Mode, or Safe mode to isolate theproblem.

The only usable option seems tobe to do a System Restore where I have the choice of losing all installed apps,or losing both all installed apps and files. Is there any way to roll back to the Windows 8.1 that isstill located in the Windows.old folder from the command prompt?

Desktop And Toolbar Constantly Refreshing?

Dec 1, 2015

I have a Dell Inspiron N5110 that I just upgraded to Windows 10 yesterday. It's been working mostly without a hitch, but I've run into the dreaded "constant refresh" problem with the desktop and toolbar. It happens maybe every minute or so. I can use the computer just fine for the most part, but when I'm gaming, the refresh will cause the game to minimize and return me to the desktop, which is extremely annoying. I haven't tried to turn the internet off yet to see if the problem persists, but I'm sure it wouldn't.

How Can Stop File Explorer Refreshing

Jan 29, 2016

I am running win 10 pro 32 and the way I have file explorer set up is in List view in name order, the problem I have is because there are so many folders when I right click and copy a name ( i.e. Tech Reports v23) then right click and make a new folder, that "new folder" is thrown into alphabetical order before I can paste the name in, usually as i try I've clicked in an empty location meaning i have to go through the routine of right click then rename then paste, not fun when you have between 20 to 40 a day to do. So need switching off the refresh while im working in that folder so it only refreshes when i manually right click once I've finished working

Desktop Black Screen Along With Constant Refreshing?

Jan 1, 2016

After upgrading to windows 10, my desktop will flash to a black screen for a few seconds and the desktop seems to refresh itself. Every time this happens it will close out of any files I have open and will even change focus to the desktop for several programs. This happens every 1 to 3 minutes. Have had this problem from day 1 of upgrading to windows 10.

I have looked for solutions to the problem, however, none of the solutions have worked for me. Other users had problems that occurred with the iCloud (which i don't have installed) and reporting services (tried turning these services off and nothing changed).

Images From Camera Roll Blurry In The New Photos App

Jul 20, 2015

I just noticed something odd tonight when browsing through my photos in Windows 10 10240. Almost all the pictures from my camera roll are blurry / low res when viewing in the new photos app. I compared them side by side on my other PC right next to it running 8.1 pro and it is night and day. The same pictures appear crisp and clean in the traditional windows photo viewer. I know that i have two different monitors with different resolutions but i never noticed a problem before when i had 8.1 on the pc that now has windows 10.

I think this is a real problem with the app in windows 10 because a) when i zoom into those photos that are blurry they become clear when zoomed in enough and b) it is very noticeable, something that i never picked up before when i was on 8.1. Now when i view wallpapers or downloaded images from the internet they seem to be clear so it doesnt really make much sense why it is just my camera roll pictures from my Lumia 929.

Apps :: Cannot Put Cortana Back On Taskbar

Jan 22, 2016

Ok so, this is my work computer and I did the upgrade to windows 10 and my first reaction was to go thru and get rid of all these apps and things I don't need on a work computer. Well, Cortana was one of the first things to go. Big mistake. I realized later that Cortana was the only way to search my computer for files. I had removed her search box, and the little O icon on my taskbar. The only place she remains is in the start menu.

I have been googling for 2 days now trying to figure out how to put that dang search box BACK ONTO MY TASKBAR! I cannot right click the taskbar and select Cortana and choose to hide or place on taskbar or anything of that nature like all the articles I keep reading, because I removed her completely.

See?? Not there, no Cortana mentioned at all.

I cannot drag Cortana out of the start menu and pin it back on the taskbar, it simply will not let me.

Nowhere in the settings can I find the option to put Cortana back as a search bar on my taskbar. Or to just put her back on the taskbar as the O icon. I used the search feature from my start menu in Windows 7 daily. Yes, I can open the start menu and click on cortana, then click on the search box and type my inquiry, but 9 times out of 10 I am on the phone with someone spouting off information that needs to be accessed quickly and eliminating the few extra clicks it takes to access Cortana like I am currently, would make me so very happy.
