All Saved Font Styles Were Reverted To Standard After Installation?
Aug 6, 2015
I am a CAD drafter. After install of Win. 10, All of my saved font styles were reverted to standard. I REALLY need a fix for this. I am currently working on about 6 projects and every page is incorrectly set up now.
Second device just got win10 logo in taskbar yesterday, but now windows says my hdd has bad sectors and I cannot access it properly. I have a saved Macrium image I made several days ago. Can I put it onto a new SSD and will my existing valid keys still work so that I can get the upgrade?
Yesterday my start menu suddenly stopped working. In it's place I had a little white house icon on the task bar. I finally figured out that that was a Lenovo product called Pokki that was apparently designed to replace the missing start menu in Windows 8. I deleted it and rebooted but my start menu still doesn't work. Then I noticed that my C drive is now called "Windows 8_OS (C". Is it possible that somehow I've reverted to Windows 8 and that's why everything is messed up? I certainly did not do this deliberately. The only other thing is that I noticed that before all this started that the Comodo firewall I had been using was gone. I thought it maybe happened when I installed Windows 10 (which had been working fine for several months, BTW) - I reinstalled Comodo but then uninstalled again thinking that might be the problem. (It wasn't.)
My start menu did freeze up once before - I fixed it by deleting explorer.exe and then putting it in again as advised when I googled it. This time, I don't even have explorer.exe in my task manager.
When the computer comes back after being in sleep mode for a while, all the icons and fonts are in much larger size and with very poor definition. If I shut down the computer and start again, everything comes back normal.This issue only started after the upgrade to Windows 10.
I upgraded to Windows 10. I didn't like it. I reverted back to 8.1. Now, every time I turn my laptop on, the Windows Update screen pops up and starts installing Windows 10. I have changed auto update settings to ask me first, but to no avail. I even selected DO NOT check for updates, to no avail. How do I get this to stop?
So I recently downgraded from Win10 to 7 and after everything finished, I can't type in my password or move my mouse! I tried replugging the USBs to no avail and I restarted and booted my pc in safe mode And now I'm stuck on the lock screen in safe mode. How do I fix this?
Win 10 Tech Demo. I would like to have plain black text on my desktop icons. I have un-ticked the appropriate box to remove the subject drop shadows, but it did not remove them. I have checked the appropriate registry setting which is set to "0".
When I boot into Win 10, the icon font at first appears black but then the desktop "re-draws" and the drop shadows appear.
I have "Classic Shell" installed to give me the standard Windows 7 type Start Menu - could this be relevant?
I like to run Windows 10 as a Standard User. I use Syncthing to sync my files from my PC to my laptop and another machine. I want to schedule syncthing so that it starts when I log on. However when creating a task, I get a message saying the user doesn't have permission. How should I do this? I've followed this guide but it assumes you are running as Administrator. Starting Syncthing Automatically Syncthing v0.12 documentation
I've solved it using the second part of the guide, using the shell:startup folder, however I'd prefer to use Task Scheduler if possible.
So as of recently I am running Windows 10 on my pc. I however noticed one thing: I have an SSD and an HDD installed.
I installed the OS on my SSD ofcourse. Now it seems that Windows 10 recognizes my SSD as a regular drive, and not as an SSD. Due to this, I am unable to install SSD drivers. I use the Samsung Evo 850 SSD.
I'm a photographer and work mostly with black and white images. I took the jump from win7 to win10 today and in setting my wallpaper as "centered" (not fill or stretch etc) I am faced with not being able to choose an appropriate background color to go "behind" the wallpaper.
How can I get a simple black or white background color to go behind / around my wallpaper image. There are plenty reds, purples, greens and blues, but precious few neutrals.
I want to be able to select background color by RGB code or a 24-bit palette.
In Windows 10, is there a way to download or activate the standard (old) windows photo viewer? The Windows 10 Photos app sucks for more reasons than I can say in one message. But the biggest problem is that it refuses to let me view my photos if I am not connected to the internet. I am in Ethiopia for a few weeks and internet is spotty. I take hundreds of pictures, transfer them to my Surface 3, then try to view them and it gives me an error and won't let me view any of them. Once I have an internet connection I can view them even though they are stored locally.
So I want to lock down a user account in a specific time or anytime that he'll not able to access the PC until morning, cuz my cousin been using my PC until midnight like there's no end and he'll just use it until 1am or 2am then sleep after. I have Windows 10 btw
If I boot normally, all three accounts, including the built-in Administrator account become Standard accounts, even though they were all setup as Administrator.
If I boot to Safe mode or Safe Mode with Networking then they all are Administrator accounts.
Right now I'm running Windows Repair All-In-One. Will see if that works.
This computer also boots to a black screen two out of three times (not always though, sometimes more, sometimes less.). If WRAIO doesn't do the job I'll tray a Refresh. If no joy there then I'll clean install. I have a good Macrium image backup so won't lose anything no matter what I do.
After logging on I get a popup message saying, "Failed to connect to a windows service. Windows couldn't connect to the Group Policy Client service. This problem prevents standard users from signing in"... How do I rectify this problem.
How can I create an admin account on a system that only has a standard user account? I suspect that the answer is that I can't, but I live in hope.
I can't provide specific details of the PC in question because it's my son's, and he lives 35+ miles away. He was running Win 8.1 but recently (in the past couple of days) upgraded to 10 and has run into a driver issue. He can't upgrade the driver because he doesn't have admin rights. I think he has an admin account on his system because I put it there, but it doesn't show up as a log-in option.
I've tried to enable the hidden admin account from a standard user acc on my system by running the command prompt as admin but am always to verify as admin - catch 22..
So I started changing my desktop backgrounds with my own images, but now, in "Settings", I no longer see the backgrounds that are included with Windows 10, like the blue Windows logo one. They don't show up in the 5 boxes.
This new "Settings" Personalisation page is terrible... Where are they saved?
How to fix my icon problem. I have icons for certain files - word and excel, that I arrange in convenient places on the desktop. If I edit these then save them, Windows moves them to different places on the desktop. This never used to happen on Windows 7 ...
