Recovery Options Gone

Dec 25, 2015

What I'm expecting:

What I get:

I just discover that my recovery options have disappeared, leaving me with the only option to Turn Off my PC instead of the usual "Reset your PC or see advanced options". I enclove two snapshots: One with the expected screen, the other one with the actual screen I got each time I invoque the Windows 10 recovery.

I have no clue whatsoever about how to fix that. My recovery partition is present as well as the EFI partition. Except for this problem my PC is working fine.

Recovery Backup Options For User Who Upgraded From Initially Win 8.1 Without CD / DVD Drive

Jan 25, 2016

We were all excited to get Win 10 and did a clean install, and finally after some time got everything worked OK. At least for my Lenovo Y40-80 it took some time. Now that I am adding software to focus on using most of this laptop. I wanted to make sure I create a system image that is this time in Win 10 to restore if something messes up in the near future.

However, this was a win 8.1 pc and never had win 10 restore in its restore partition that is the built-in Lenovo Restore & It has no CD/DVD Drive to create Natural Win 10 Repair Disc to boot from. So I am trying now to create a "Recovery Drive" on an external USB to keep however since I can't create a Win 10 Repair disc without CD/DVD Drive, how am I going to have access to this Win 10 backup if I have to restore to this point??

Finally I also don't have any clue that; even if I took the risk, and restored back to original Win 8.1 - is it going to be possible to pass again to Win 10 clean install.

Will it be possible without any Win 10 key? What key it passed on to when it did clean install to Win 10 this past september when I did my free upgrade...

How to manage to create a win 10 native backup and were able to restore it without having to go back win 8.1 partition.

Indexing Options Keeps Reverting To Default

Aug 21, 2015

I have been trying to set my Windows 10 Home 64-bit computer to index only the Start Menu but not anything else (such as IE Favourites, Documents). I know exactly where all my documents are; the only time I use search is something like, I press the Win key, and type in cmd, or ccleaner, etc. So I really only need Windows to index the start menu.

However, every time after reboot, if I go into Indexing Options they will just revert back to default.Is there a way I can make the changes stick?

I have installed win10 on to my Brothers PC and kept getting the message `Inaccessible Boot Device` and was caught in a loop.

When I click on Win10 the OS loads. How do I remove the other box?. I have installed Win10 on two other PC`s and have not seen this screen before.

Some Control Panel Options Are Not Indexed

Sep 7, 2015

I have a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro on my desktop with all updates installed. I like to use Cortana to quickly get to settings and apps, but I noticed for some reason I can't find every system setting via Cortana. For example, searching for "updates" on my wife's laptop brings up "Check for updates" and takes her to Windows Update, but when I search for "updates" on my desktop it only finds web results. Even doing a search for "updates" from within the system settings window doesn't find the setting.

After some searching I believe I've found the problem. The indexing for settings search appears to be in this folder:

C:Users{user}AppDataLocalPackageswindows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewyLocalStateIndexe dSettingsen-US. When I search for "updates" in this folder on my desktop there are no results, but on my wife's laptop there is a result for "Check for updates." It appears my index is missing several features for some reason. How can I fix this? Does rebuilding the index from the advanced Indexing Options also rebuild the system settings index or is there a separate process for this?

With Windows 8,1 I was able to sign out of my account and then put the PC to sleep (or shutdown, restart or hibernate) by selecting the option in the sign-in screen. But there is no power icon or any power options on the Windows 10 sign-in screen. I can only put the PC into sleep mode while signed in.

No Password After Sleep - Options Frozen

Aug 1, 2015

Just upgraded to Windows 10 and found out that my computer which was setup with a "password after sleep" does not require any longer any password after sleep without me changing anything on the setup. How is this possible? Did I miss something in the upgrading process?

Moreover, when I try to check and validate the windows 10 setup regarding the use of passwords it seems everything is correct on the screen but not changeable. Options are like "frozen".

Customization :: Missing Power Options

Sep 5, 2015

I apparently have Fast Startup enabled after upgrading to Win10. I would like to turn it off so I am not automatically logged on when I power up. (We don't have the IDs password protected on this desktop PC.) There are very simple instructions given in a TenForums tutorial, but my Power Options don't match what is shown in the tutorial. In particular, under Shutdown Settings I have only Sleep and Lock - no "Turn on fast startup"; no "Hibernate". Since this is a desktop there is also no "On battery" options, but that is obviously not a concern. But is the option of turning on and off Hibernate available only on laptops?

No Admin Options - Tried Run App And Command Prompt

Aug 7, 2015

So I attempted to remove the stupid passwords using the "Run" app and entering "netplwiz". I somehow managed to instead remove my admin options and the password is still in effect... I attempted to go back to the "Run" app but when it asks if I would like this app to make changes to my computer, the only option is "No". Yes is grayed out and there is no place to put a password.

I also tried the Command Prompt. I right click and choose "Run as Admin", it again asks if I would like to make changes and the only option is "No". So I tried typing "net user administrator /active:yes" I get access denied system error 5.

I have tried logging out of the current account, but it looks like the current account is the only account on the computer. I can't even run my virus protection because it asks to make changes to the computer and "No" is the only option. I tried Windows support but they referred me to technical support and the wait is over 3 hours.

How To Easily Swap Between Power Options

In Windows 8, I could right click on the task bar's battery icon and then swap between pre-set power settings. In Windows 10 this is no longer possible. I need to right click on it, then click on power options and then there select the new power plan. so one EXTRA step. I know it does not sound like much, but it is 50% slower...
