Mike,

          If you don't have any internet connectivity, you don't have access to anything that depends upon same, such as email, dropbox, or any cloud-based services.

Mária,
 
If your email is working on the laptop that you're having the problems with, can you upload the drivers you neeed with your father's computer to Dropbox or a similar account and send yourself a download link to get the drivers?

Yep that’s basically what I was trying to explain. Because it is strange an older machine is deemed ready. But just to be verry clear though if that person wanted to take the chance they could grab it from where you download windows correct? I remember Leo Laporte and Mary Joe saying this on an Windows Weekly episode. All though Mary Joe did recommend that 1 waits. Because if you weren’t offered it it’s because MS found things about your PC that didn’t meet what ever the requirements are for it to get in this case 20H2. I just still find it funny as hell a totally brand new 2020 Dell XPS 8940 didn’t get it but an Hp from either 2016 or 17 did. Lol!

Hello again,
thank you for your help.
The thing is that on my laptop, like I mentioned in the previous E-mail, internet connection, uSB ports and CD/DVD drive are not working.
Unfortunately, I do not have system image backup, but I believe I have setup files of the drivers I need to instal. I just don't know how to transfer it to the laptop when USB ports, internet connection and CD/dvd drives are not working.
I took my dad's laptop to download the drivers I need.
Is there a way of transfering files between computers via cables or any other way?
I am afraid I woul not be able to navigate my mom and tell her how to restore to previous update, it would be too complicated for both of us; I would make it doing on my own, but she cannot sometimes understand where to click and she clicks on completely different item. Instaling drivers from the scratch seem to be easier.

An umpteenth notice from the head list representative about feature update deployment: I said, ENOUGH! #AdminNotice

 

Hello Win10 forum family,

A few years ago I (your head list representative/forum owner) requested that we start moving away from asking repeatedly about feature update deployment. Specifically, I declared in one of those notices that I will no longer answer posts that asks, “when will I get such and such feature update” and variations of these. I know that this is acceptable if you are truly new to Windows 10 ecosystem and might be wondering about frequent releases. But now that Windows 10 is more than five years old with feature update deployment rhythm firmly established, even going so far as Microsoft and observers notifying folks as to what’s going on with upgrade blocks and such and reassurance that you’ll get upgrades when it is ready for your system, it would be best to move away from these discussions.

 

As your forum administrator, I’m heartbroken that we have to endure this. I’m more heartbroken when people constantly bring up different variations of feature update deployment questions despite clear answers given, both on this forum cluster and elsewhere, especially more so after repeated warnings from the forum admin. So, with a heavy heart, I once again will answer a few frequently repeated questions for sake of helping new people understand what’s going on and to declare that we need to move on:

 

Q. When will a feature update show up on my system?

Whenever Microsoft and OEM’s say the system configuration you are using is ready for a feature update.

 

Q. I really want to use the just released feature update.

Please READ AND WAIT (I repeat: please read and wait). Please read what’s new and changed with the just released feature update first (that’s why I include these as part of screen reader compatibility notices), and if you know you’ll be using something from the new update, wait until it shows up on Windows Update unless there is a real urgent need to use new features.

 

Q. Do I have the latest feature update?

It depends on when you ask. What is considered the latest update changes almost every six months. To check what the current feature update is, you can visit Windows 10 release information page at:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/release-information/

 

 

Q. What will happen if someone asks the feature update deployment question again?

Expect an off-list chat with the leadership team and the thread promptly locked. It is okay to ask within the first few days after a feature update graduates Insider Preview testing (understandable if you are totally new to Windows 10 and how the update works), but if a question like this shows up a week after the feature update is released, expect leadership action.

 

Actually, please don’t post these questions again. I hate to say the following, but it must be said now: the next time a seasoned Windows 10 user posts a repeat question about feature update deployment, that will be a trigger for me to explode i.e. take serious action. Some of you know well what I mean, so please do not let me transform into a volcano. I am serious.

 

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi. Don't know how MS decides these things. Because my brand new XPS 8940 didn't get 20H2 either but my either 2016 or 2017 HP laptop did. I forget when I got that laptop. Point being it's older and it got 20H2. I know you use to beable to force it to the new 1 before but I don't know if that's true anymore. In other words I don't know if you and I could just download 20H2 and just install it just because.

Sarah,

          My central point being that you cannot "pick and choose" if you literally have the setting to Always show all icons in the notification area set to ON.

          You can only pick and choose when it is set to OFF.  What you originally described is a logical impossibility, not a practical one, but you'd have to have this setting toggled OFF and then have all the individual icons toggled on if you wanted all showing but the capability of putting some into hiding if you were to so choose.

          The Always show all icons in the notification area is an all or nothing affair and if it's ON then you get everything, period, with no option to shove any individual items into the overflow area reached via the notification chevron.

          As to personal preferences, that's just what they are, and I'm certainly not going to attempt to tell you, or anyone else, what works best for them.  I'm willing to make suggestions about trying different options, but the one(s) ultimately chosen are entirely a personal choice.

OK folks, I'll take the chance of once again looking like a dunce, and maybe even figuring it all out within the next hour of posting this appeal for assistance. And please, if you aren't interested in helping, but only expressing  irritation in one way or another, do me the kindness of just sitting this one out.


I have RTFMed, or at least what could pass for one, namely, the help, but still can't figure out just how to work with the scheduler. What I want to do, just to get started with backing up at intervals, is to set up the app to transfer/copy files from my hard drive's download folder, and backing up to my external drives corresponding download folder every ten minutes. I would like to keep it this way for a day or two, both until I figure out how to work with thing, as well as deciding just how often I would like to pace my backups in the future.


Now in the interest of not wanting to clog up the list, as well as continuing to embarrass myself, I hope some kind person will contact me off list.


All help will be gratefully appreciated.

after doing some system updates and restarting the laptop, I got the following error:
"Error initializing audio."
Sighted person told me that windows launched, but there are no sounds.
I was going to reinstal audio drivers, but I found out that neither USB ports nor internet connection are working, so I haven't found the way how to reinstal drivers.
Please, is there any other way how to make it work?
THE laptop CD/DVD drive is not working properly and I cannot use external CD/DVD drive because ports are not working.
The only thing I have available at the moment is my dad's laptop.
Are there any other options such as transfering setup files from one laptop to another without internet connection and working USB ports?
Thank you for your help in advance.

That's a completely new one on me!  By the way, laptop users, most of you will not have a dedicated Pause key.  On many (but not all) laptop keyboards the Pause key is the FN+Right Shift Key, so the shortcut becomes WinKey+FN+Right Shift Key.   If your keyboard happens to have it somewhere other than Right Shift, and does not have a dedicated Pause Key, then you'd still use WinKey+FN plus whatever the location is on your particular keyboard.

Re: Just checked my SSD to see how full it is.

Ah okay. Thanks. Yeah it just seemed strange it was what did I say in the end 677 of 219? The first numbers were the 1 TB data drive. The 1s of interest for the whole PC locking up mid message and stuff are 677 GB of 219 GB of the 256 GB SSD. Just because someone said that they red someware that you should keep an SSD half empty. Though I don’t get how that would relate to ram. I just thought it did because of the timing when my XPS started doing the locking up thing.

Hi Hamit.  Your disk space isn't as acurate as you would expect because as your disk gets formatted for installing windows, data such cache and other formatting gets written to your disk in addition to your windows files.  These take up space, so your disk of say 1000GB has already got a few gb of it's space occupied.  Also you must take into account that if 1MB = 1024KBS and not 100KBS as is usually expected, then space taken up by formatting and windows is far more than expected.  So if your installation occupies say 2GB of space, then 2048MB of your disk space has already been taken, hence your perceived discrepancy.  And last but not least, different Operating Systems, for some reason have slight differentials to their way of calculating disk space and applications sizes.  Mac and Windows are just two such examples.  Hope that helps.  Cheers!

Hi there friends. So checked the SSD. I cleaned it a bit as wel so now I have 677 GB of 901 GB free. I find the 901 GB thing interesting as it’s a 256 GB SSD. Why is it reporting like this? Shouldn’t it say how much of the full 256 has been used? Or does it not care to report all the GBs eaten by Windows and all the Dell stuff crap or other wize. I just mentioned this because with mine and Bill’s out of memory problem someone said something about you should keep the SSD half empty. So I guess I should according to that keep what ever 256 devided by 2 is free of the SSD. Thanks.

Belarc Advisor is a fabulous utility, and I use it all the time when I have a greater interest in software on the machine than hardware.

I find Speccy much better if it's strictly hardware and OS related specs that are needed, and Belarc Advisor much better when you want a software inventory.

By the way, and not pushing Speccy any more than I have, but the fact that it can save its report in plain text format does make it significantly easier for many screen reader users to deal with that report afterward.  I honestly don't know whether Belarc Advisor has that too, as I've never tried to get anything other than the report it generates that is presented in your default web browser.  If anyone knows, please share.

Belarc Advisor is a fabulous utility, and I use it all the time when I have a greater interest in software on the machine than hardware.

I find Speccy much better if it's strictly hardware and OS related specs that are needed, and Belarc Advisor much better when you want a software inventory.

By the way, and not pushing Speccy any more than I have, but the fact that it can save its report in plain text format does make it significantly easier for many screen reader users to deal with that report afterward.  I honestly don't know whether Belarc Advisor has that too, as I've never tried to get anything other than the report it generates that is presented in your default web browser.  If anyone knows, please share.
