Re: Version 1803 critical period: April 30 to May 2, 2018#AdminNotice #WinTenOld

Hi Joseph!

If I want to take the plunge, I usually do, will there be a new media creation tool to download that will download the 1803 which is how I like to do it. I am batting a thousand, when I use the media creation tool to get it months before I would get it on my machine.

Thanks a lot!

Hi everyone,

As a follow-up to several questions and comments: we’ll enter Version 1803 critical period effective midnight Pacific Daylight Time on April 30, 2018. For 99 percent of you, you should wait until the feature update shows up on Windows Update.

Cheers,

Joseph

Dear Win10 forum family,

 

Not long ago you may have seen a post from me detailing what will happen once Version 1803 (April 2018 Update) hits the air. This is a summary reminder as to what will happen next week:

 

For the first 72 hours after release of a Windows 10 feature update, this forum cluster will enter critical standby period. Effectively, all activity on this forum will be suspended except:

 

  • Upgrade steps.
  • New feature impressions.
  • Major and critical advisories from screen reader vendors and Windows Insiders.
  • Any admin notices.

 

During this time Microsoft staff and screen reader vendor representatives will be elevated to temporary moderator status so they can assist you through various means. Please pay attention to words from them as they may distribute advisories you need to follow. I have asked Windows Insiders (a few weeks ago) to help you learn new things in Version 1803.

 

Also, as noted on the calendar invite sent not long ago, April 30th is the day first wave devices will receive feature update to Version 1803 (Semi-Annual Channel Targeted). Unless you know exactly what you’re doing, please hold off upgrading until Windows Update presents an item called “Feature update to Windows 10, Version 1803”. In summer, this update will be pushed out to everyone (including businesses), and even then, you may get this feature update later.

 

Thank you for your cooperation.

Cheers,

Joseph

 


re will there be a windows media creator tool for 1803 for 32 and 64 bit

g melconian
 

Hello I am wondering will there  be a  windows media creator tool for 1803 and will that  also be available on april 30 or will that  go live after that date. Just wondering so if I do decide to  do a 1803 upgrade if things go wrong I can at least get back up and running with the windows media creator tool.

Re: log on, log off and shut down sounds, was there ever a solution?

 

The Windows Start sound is easy, just make sure fast startup is turned off and enable the Windows Startup sound in Sound settings.
The shutdown sound has to be set up as an elevated task using the task scheduler. Here are the steps which were posted and which worked for me although while it plays most of the time on my Asus Zenbook it doesn't do so 100%:

Starting in Windows 8, the Windows Shutdown sound event has been disabled. This leaves you unable to change or play the Windows Shutdown sound when a user selects to shut down the PC in Windows 10. As a workaround, you can still create an elevated task to play a sound at shutdown Windows 10.
This tutorial will show you how to play a sound at shutdown for all users in Windows 10.
You must be signed in as an administrator to create an elevated task. Here's How:

1. Press the Win+R keys to open Run, type taskschd.msc into Run, and click/tap on OK to open Task Scheduler.
2. Click/tap on Task Scheduler Library in the left pane of Task Scheduler, and click/tap on Create Task in the right Actions pane.
3. In the General tab, type a name (ex: "Play shutdown sound") you want for this task.
4. In the General tab, select Run whether user is logged on or not.
5. In the General tab, check the Run with highest privileges box.
6. In the General tab, select Windows 10 in the Configure for drop down.
7. Click/tap on the Triggers tab, and click/tap on the New button.
8. Perform the actions below:
A) Select "On an event" in the Begin the task drop down.
B) Select "System" in the Log drop down.
C) Type "1074" (user initiated shutdown) in the Event ID drop down, and click/tap on OK.
9. Click/tap on the Actions tab, and click/tap on the New button.
10. Perform the actions below:
A) Select Start a program in the Action drop down.
B) Type "PowerShell" in the Program/script field box.
C) Enter the command below into the Add arguments field box, and click/tap on OK.
-c (New-Object Media.SoundPlayer 'C:\Windows\Media\Windows Shutdown.wav').PlaySync();
Note: If you wanted to play a sound (.wav file) of your choice instead, you can substitute C:\Windows\Media\Windows Shutdown.wav in the command above with the full path of the .wav file you want to be played.
11. Click/tap on the Conditions tab, uncheck the "Start the task only if the computer is on AC power" and click/tap on OK.
12. You will be prompted to enter your account's password, do so and click/tap on OK.
The "Play Shutdown Sound" task is now finished, and will now play a sound when the PC is shutdown.

hi all,
after hours and hours of getting nowhere, my question is in the subject line. I have already tweeked the registry, and the sounds show up in the control panel. I have also assigned them their respective sounds, but still, when I power on or off, no sounds. also tried setting a task, tried tweeking things, but no joy. did anyone ever get this to work, and if so, would it please be possible to share the secret of it?

hi,
gotta agree. built quality has recently decreased, and sometimes the latest isn't the greatest. I had a sandy bridge latitude flip over and die. my lanovo that I bought recently failed the user bench mark test entirely. both the above were windows 10. so now, back to a 6 year old, falling apart samsung, which I attempted to replace 3 times. I also saw an article on twitter, where the $2000 dell kept failing, and dell tech support wasn't helpful at all. these days, it all depends on luck.
PS. this 6 year old i3 has no signs of slow downs, scores 80% on the bench mark tests...

Hi
My asus transformer book t100 which is a 300 dollar computer runs office just fine.
It's also a 5 year old pile of junk, as you so eloquently put it. Upside of having something with no moving parts is I also get 20 hours of batterylife and can charge with micro USB. It runs chrome just fine, I also have dropbox, skype, and team talk on it. With the screen on it still manages around 10 hours. All of this while using 4 watts of power.
I have seen 300 dollar computer last years - so far as I know my netbook with an intel atom n270 is still kicking. And I have also seen 1000 plus dollar machines give up hard after 1 or 2 years.
It seems to me these days that you really aren't going to find an amazingly built computer. The hinge might be nice, but there are so many sacrifices these days. I'm not even talking about port selection - but software, processor, heat. Everyone is trying to be the thinnest and lightest and sacrifice performance in laptops with these 8th gen intel chips it seems.
I love this Lenovo desktop of mine, but hey guess what? I can't extend the warranty beyond the 1 year on the website. Minor quibble but after this kind of money I'm pretty unhappy.

I have had my HP Stream for over four years, and it runs better than it did when I bought it because of Windows 10. Many times, you can close programs and open them back up. Also, it is the tasks you do on a computer that are the most important. I surf the net, read articles, send and receive email, and use many on line services, and play music. That is all I do with that computer.

I should have made that clear that I don’t do heavy stuff, like use MS word, play games and such. I use Jarte as a great word processor, and it is a portable version.

I use many portable programs that run from a USB drive, instead of being installed on the computer. The portable version of Firefox, for example, runs from my flash drive, and works as well as my installed version on my big computer. I use programs like TW blue, A PDF reader, Virtual recorder, Jarte, and many other portable programs that do not get installed onto the computer at all.

So, there are many variables here in terms of what you need to actually install and run on your computer.

Take care, guys!

Hi,

Actually, with careful planning, 128 GB is more than enough to store temporary files for Windows Update (and feature updates).

As for calling “low-end” hardware “junk”: I’d say it is up to a person’s standpoint, not the products themselves unless they have severe issues.

Cheers,

Joseph

Now I buy only mini PC’s for my buisiness because they are so convenient, use relatively little power and are virtually silent. I have two Intel NUC and 2 HP Elite mini PC’s, again, most of them were about $800 Canadian, but that is with either an I5 or I7 CPU, 12 or 16 Gb of RAM and a 120/128 Gb or 240/256 Gb SSD.

Hi I am thinking about purchasing a hp laptop with windows 10 and it only comes with 32 gigs of storage. Will that be a problem if windows 10 downloads feature upgrades when they are released? It has a 14 inch screen. And it has four gigs of ram and a intale processor.

It seems the smaller laptops get the less amount of space you get. I found a hp laptop that had a 14 inch screen but only had 128 gigs of starage. That probbally would not be enough space for windows10 upgrades.

I agree that there is no need to call inexpensive hardware with entry-level, low-end  components a “pile of junk”, to me that is condescending and not very polite. I could ask you what sort of stereo you have at home and even if you tell me you have a $1,000 fancy receiver and $2,000 speakers I could ask you why you buy such junk, but just because I invested a multiple of these amounts into my stereo does not mean I should do so. Everybody has to decide for themselves what works, I also bought a Netbook once when they were all the craze and at first thought it was great, but I quickly did realize that it was rather under powered and while it ran Office, it did so quite slowly and I must say I personally did not enjoy the experience.

Anyhow, I think enough has been said regarding this topic and with the spring creator’s update dropping tomorrow I think it’

S time to move on.

Hi

My asus transformer book t100 which is a 300 dollar computer runs office just fine.

It's also a 5 year old pile of junk, as you so eloquently put it. Upside of having something with no moving parts is I also get 20 hours of batterylife and can charge with micro USB. It runs chrome just fine, I also have dropbox, skype, and team talk on it. With the screen on it still manages around 10 hours. All of this while using 4 watts of power.

I have seen 300 dollar computer last years - so far as I know my netbook with an intel atom n270 is still kicking. And I have also seen 1000 plus dollar machines give up hard after 1 or 2 years.

 

It seems to me these days that you really aren't going to find an amazingly built computer. The hinge might be nice, but there are so many sacrifices these days. I'm not even talking about port selection - but software, processor, heat. Everyone is trying to be the thinnest and lightest and sacrifice performance in laptops with these 8th gen intel chips it seems.

 

I love this Lenovo desktop of mine, but hey guess what? I can't extend the warranty beyond the 1 year on the website. Minor quibble but after this kind of money I'm pretty unhappy.

I should have made that clear that I don’t do heavy stuff, like use MS word, play games and such. I use Jarte as a great word processor, and it is a portable version.

I use many portable programs that run from a USB drive, instead of being installed on the computer. The portable version of Firefox, for example, runs from my flash drive, and works as well as my installed version on my big computer. I use programs like TW blue, A PDF reader, Virtual recorder, Jarte, and many other portable programs that do not get installed onto the computer at all.

So, there are many variables here in terms of what you need to actually install and run on your computer.

Take care, guys!

I have sometimes thought about buying one of those stick PC’s, they have much the same specs of your HP Stream, basically enough onboard storage for Windows and some applications and meant to be plugged into the back of a TV for surfing the web and media consumption. Tjhey are little larger than a big USB stick with an HDMI port and a couple of USB ports, bluetooth and WiFi, some have an ethernet port and you can use a bluetooth keyboard/mouse or buy a Logitecch or Microsoft with a little USB dongle which you plug in to one of the USB ports. The other port you can use for an external hard drive if you want access to more storage.
I believe these things are often under $200 Canadian.

Hi I am thinking about purchasing a hp laptop with windows 10 and it only comes with 32 gigs of storage. Will that be a problem if windows 10 downloads feature upgrades when they are released? It has a 14 inch screen. And it has four gigs of ram and a intale processor.

Hi

My asus transformer book t100 which is a 300 dollar computer runs office just fine.

It's also a 5 year old pile of junk, as you so eloquently put it. Upside of having something with no moving parts is I also get 20 hours of batterylife and can charge with micro USB. It runs chrome just fine, I also have dropbox, skype, and team talk on it. With the screen on it still manages around 10 hours. All of this while using 4 watts of power.

I have seen 300 dollar computer last years - so far as I know my netbook with an intel atom n270 is still kicking. And I have also seen 1000 plus dollar machines give up hard after 1 or 2 years.


It seems to me these days that you really aren't going to find an amazingly built computer. The hinge might be nice, but there are so many sacrifices these days. I'm not even talking about port selection - but software, processor, heat. Everyone is trying to be the thinnest and lightest and sacrifice performance in laptops with these 8th gen intel chips it seems.


I love this Lenovo desktop of mine, but hey guess what? I can't extend the warranty beyond the 1 year on the website. Minor quibble but after this kind of money I'm pretty unhappy.

I should have made that clear that I don’t do heavy stuff, like use MS word, play games and such. I use Jarte as a great word processor, and it is a portable version.

I use many portable programs that run from a USB drive, instead of being installed on the computer. The portable version of Firefox, for example, runs from my flash drive, and works as well as my installed version on my big computer. I use programs like TW blue, A PDF reader, Virtual recorder, Jarte, and many other portable programs that do not get installed onto the computer at all.

So, there are many variables here in terms of what you need to actually install and run on your computer.

Take care, guys!

I guess if these cheaper computers with almost no storage, low-end processors and the bare minimum of RAM work for you than that’s great. On the other hand I never had a computer I bought actually give up the ghost prior to when I decided to retire it. I just replaced one PC at my business which has been running pretty much 24 hours a day (we only turn our PC’s off from closing time on Saturday until opening time on Monday, for over 10 years. I bought it in February of 2008 and it was a basic business desktop built by the computer store here in Canada where I buy most of my stuff. At the time it was middle of the road stuff, a full-sized desktop and which cost me about $800 Canadian at the time. Now I buy only mini PC’s for my buisiness because they are so convenient, use relatively little power and are virtually silent. I have two Intel NUC and 2 HP Elite mini PC’s, again, most of them were about $800 Canadian, but that is with either an I5 or I7 CPU, 12 or 16 Gb of RAM and a 120/128 Gb or 240/256 Gb SSD.

What is the advantage of this rollback software over using Windows Restore points?

Hi,

 

Using: latest W10Home 64 bit, Jaws 2018 and Rollback RX Home

 

Has anyone got experience with using Rollback Home, the free version,who could give me some pointers in its use?

 

I can't discover how to delete an old snapshot so a new one can be made. If

a new snapshot is    attempted, the programme says to delete an old one

first but no hint how this can be done.

 

 

The setting section can be apparently setup so an old snapshot will be automatically deleted and a new snapshop made but so far,after setting it to

4 days, nothing has happened.

 

Google searches on the subject seems to only deal with the professional version and not the free one.

 

 

Thanks for any assistance.

Tom

Where can you find this software?

Because Windows restore point does not always work.  Also it has been claimed that it can screw up your system but I have never experienced this. I have experienced the first problem though.
