Never had a problem before in copying and pasting files, from one External Hdd to another External Hdd.
All of a sudden windows 10 will not let me copy and paste multiple files, will only let me copy and paste single files only. I have used copy and paste, Ctrl C and Ctrl V, used copy to folder and paste to folder.
I am finding it impossible to copy and paste from Photos. Am I overlooking something? I want to watermark my images, and am unable to, without emailing them to me, downloading them, then uploading them to my watermark program...too many steps!
When trying to copy and paste a file from File Explorer (or Desktop), my "Paste" operations remains disabled. As if the copy operation never actually copied the file. I also noticed that when I select "Cut" (file/icon becomes somewhat transparent), then moment I right click on the location where I would like to paste, the file/icon that the transparency stops, and once again the "Paste" function is not available.
The same goes for Ctrl+X/Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V. This also does not work.
When I boot into safe mode the operation works however, and intermittently in "normal" mode the operation does work. It seems as if some service/driver/thing stops the functionality.
I had hoped Windows 10 corrected the "rename user account" function but nope. I renamed a User Account due to conflict on the LAN [same name, same spelling] and sure enough, now I have two names for the account, one a slightly hidden original name, and permissions issues. To rid it, I will create an all new Administrator account, move everything over, and demolish the old. How to do? the docs/files are easy... the settings for apps etc are not as I recall
I upgraded to Windows 10 the second day it was available and have had problems with not being able to use any Microsoft account features. When trying to sign in on the Xbox app I get the error 0x3fb and get a button that says try again. When I try to click "Sign in with a Microsoft account instead" it just sits there and does nothing no matter how long I wait or how many times I click it. The same issue occurs when I try to make a new local account or add a Microsoft account to the Cortana app. not being able to use the features of Windows 10 make the upgrade pointless.
I upgraded my Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit install to Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (build 10240 from "winver") last month. The Start Menu search, ever since I upgraded, has always been really slow at finding things, but now it's died. I have a pretty decent, but old laptop: i7-2670QM quad-core, 8GB DDR3, GT 555M, Plextor M3S 256GB SSD. The SSD is a tad full (15GB free), but it worked fine on Windows 7.
Nothing is found: the search is perpetually stuck on those 5 loading dots, even when I search for "control panel", "windows update", or "calculator". This is after waiting 30 seconds:
Rebooting - no change Rebuilding the search index - no change ("278,754 items indexed. Indexing complete.") Adding "Program Files" & "Program Files (x86)" to the search index - no change Turned online results off - no change Turned Cortana off - no change Ran the System File Checker (sfc /scannow) - no errors found Ran a virus scan (Avira Free), a malware scan (Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware Free), and I use an exploit blocker (Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Free). All detected 0 viruses/malware/exploits.
What is the issue here? I would've thought finding the dang Calculator app should've worked! The File Explorer search is working fine. Just the Start Menu search is dead.
I found my computer updating itself, and it said I would be excited about the new updates. Well now when I click my calculator it says that it cannot be used in my Administrator Account and it asks me to sign in again with another Account. It was working before in my Administrator Account, why not now?
To say the least, I am NOT excited about this at all. Is there anything that I can do to get it working again? I tried right clicking it to see if I could open it with my Administrator, but nothing was there for me to do that with.
I just noticed a lot of music in my collection was not downloading, when trying to manually download any "steaming" albums in my collection I get an error saying "Couldn't download to your library. Your library doesn't contain any folders that are not associated with a cloud storage service"
I don't recall having this issue before, but I'm pretty sure its because my profile's Music folder is stored in OneDrive. Does this mean we must have two music folders now? One for music stored in OneDrive, and another local-only folder for music downloaded from our collection?
After an update my calculator fails to initiate. When I double-click the app it shows on the desktop for about half a second as a shadow but disappears in an instant. I've rolled back the update but it didn't solve the problem. So now I am trying to uninstall it in order to upload the new one [URL] .... but I've got this message in my Windows Powershell ...
So I have Windows 10 and want to get rid of the password protected login feature. I found some steps on this site which are vaguely "On your windows 10 Start menu window, right click at the Win logo > select Run option > in the Run box type netplwiz > OK > follow the prompts. Restart Win 10."
Did that. On restart, I didn't need a password. Naturally, I thought the problem was solved. Nope. When the computer goes to sleep, I need to enter a password to re-open it; when it is turned off or restarted, I don't need a password.
