• Windows 10

    I've installed Windows 10 on my Acer laptop and several Dell computers
    at work. So far, impressive. Windows 10 gets better as you use it.
    It's very stable, fast, and efficient performance. We haven't really
    had any issues with. We did have to load an HP printer driver for
    Windows 10 from HP's website to replace a Windows 7 printer driver.
    Other than that, we have noticed a significant improvement.

    I relented and decided to install Windows 10 on both boxes. I feel more complete
    that I am using the operating system. Some are worried about privacy issues,

    we all give and trade our selves to other websites and companies anyways.

    You can turn off the auto reporting features to Microsoft in the
    settings. The security concerns people have are primarily in the app
    store and market for collecting data. As far as the Windows 10 desktop
    goes, you are safe with your privacy rights.

    Well, one good thing about the Windows 10 File Explorer is the file
    history snapshot and quick access list to the left. I like it since it restored the file history feature that Windows 8 left out. Windows 7
    is still good though.

    You've got a menu bar along the top? Click View - which should open the View ribbon below the menus. On the left of that, you should see an item - Navigation pane. Click that and there should be an option to view the Navigation pane or not. Click to enable it.

    Next step(s) will be to customize what appears in the Navigation Pane - what you've referred to as the 'Left Listing'. You can add - or remove - items from the Quick Access list by right-clicking them (in the larger main window) and choosing Pin to Quick Access. You can re-order items in the Quick Access list by simply dragging them up or down.

    Is there a way you can reset the Windows 10 stock view that reflects
    the left side display of shorcuts, top half display of drives, and
    bottom half of recent files & places? Did you upgrade your computer to Windows 10 from Windows 7 or 8? If you did, maybe it brought through
    your previous settings from those OS's. Reset the view back to default
    and see what happens. I think you will like the new functionality.

    While the new file explorer has a few to many bells and whistles for me
    I can now work with it.

    Next to 'shut down the system and restart it', check the options in the 'View' menu is my most common tech-support suggestion.

    Hello Bryan.

    I find that Macs are more fun to use but not for everyone. I personally hate working on Windows machines because it keeps locking up and being
    stupid :)


    I do not find this to be recurrent. OS is like a religion, someone once said,
    maybe. I do not kneel and pray in front of any computor. As far as I am concerned, it is a question of habit, said the monk. My wife was given a Macbook Air and I am asked at times to solve a problem, I usually find a way but I have to search and peek all over, I do not know the OS or what is behind the screen, such is my play.
    I will give you your opinion, do respect mine in turn. The stupidity is often
    on the interface between the chair and the keyboard.

    Good one Jean, I like it as it applies to me far more then I think!!!
