Hi, Ashleigh.

 

To Terminate Cortana

 

 

1. Open Windows Settings with Windows key plus I.

2. TAB to the list of Settings categories.

3. Right Arrow to Apps, and press ENTER.

4. TAB about nine times to the list of apps.

5. Arrow down to Cortana, and press ENTER.

6. TAB to Advanced Options, and press ENTER.

7. TAB to the Terminate button, and press ENTER.

8. Close Settings.

 

That's it. Cortana's window won't appear again until the next time you use the app.

Where would all those settings be? I’m also having trouble exiting the application of Cortana even though I press alt F4 but does no good. Therefore, I just don’t use it unless I need to/restart my computer immediately afterward to get out of there.

Before you can find the Terminate button in Cortana, you must TAB to Advanced Options, and press ENTER. Also, make sure Cortana's Background Apps setting is turned off, as well as Start Cortana at logon.

I have a corsair k67 keyboard. It is not wired per-say but I love it. I have the wire part hooked up to my mac, the wireless part hooked up to my windows machine and the bluetooth part hooked into my phone. I use it for gaming as well as my job. It is a mechanical keyboard that for me feels good to type on.

Hi,

I Am using the Microsoft 4000 curved keyboard, this is wired.
If you are a touchtypist, it has the gap in the middle to space your hands out.
If you have not used one before, it can take a bit of getting used to but if you stick with it, you will not go back in my opinion.
The touch is quite nice and it has a lot of extra keys for volume, web search etc etc and I am sure you can programme some of the keys but I have never bothered to try.
The right windows key is next to the lefthand ctrl key which is a little different but again, it is surprising how you get used to it.

This cannot be stressed enough.  There is absolutely no "one size fits all best" when it comes to a keyboard.  Your advice to go to local brick and mortar outlets to try a few out is excellent.  Sometimes, even if you can only narrow it down to a couple of manufacturers, but not models that are in-store, that's a start.

Personally, I would encourage you to visit your local retailers and get your hands on the keyboards that are on display if that's available in your area. A good keyboard is so subjective as everyone has different taste on tactile feel and keyboard functions. If you're a screen reader user, it may be essential that the keyboard has an application key.

Re: How do I get out of the Cortana screen?

 

Hi,

Cortana is a floating window, therefore you can’t simply let go of her by pressing Alt+F4. You must tell her to go by going to either:

  1. Task Manager, then Details tab and looking for cortana.exe and ending it.
  2. Settings (Windows+I)/Apps/Apps and features, select Cortana from the list of apps, go to Advanced options and choose Terminate.

This applies to Cortana second generation (Version 2004), which some of you should have encountered in one way or another by now.

Cheers,

Joseph

Brian,

 

I recently tried updating from 1909 to build 20h2 but had the same problem that I did last summer when trying to update to 2004 – couldn’t access start menu or Action Center, and likely other issues I had not yet found. I’m kind of leery about trying again to update to 20h2 but won’t know if I have this same experience unless I do the update but wonder if there is anything after the update that could fix this problem once and for all? the update itself that I recently tried went smoothly, no problems detected, but something in that update has caused the above problem. Is there anything I can do with the update process to keep the start menu & Action Centers functioning?

 

Thanks,

 

BP

Well, my suspicion is that you fat-fingered your password and that's what got saved.  If you go to the location I mentioned, there is a Manage Saved Passwords section.  I'd nuke the one for the website in question and go through the process of saving it again the next time you log in.

All win10 versions have this same feature. Knowing your password isn't
enough. Your user account must be an administrator to change the
password behaviour of your account.

Hi all,
I have the below instructions for removing a password for a local
account.
I don't see the checkbox to uncheck use a password.
I just hear the user account, add and properties which doesn't give the
info listed below.
Think they may have changed things in the latest version of 10.

Open Run command.
In the Run dialog box, type
Netplwiz
press Enter.
You will be prompted with the User Accounts dialog, select your user
account first and then uncheck the option labelled Users must enter a
user
name and password to use this computer at the top. Click Apply button
to
see Automatically sign in box.
On the "Automatically sign in box" confirm your credentials and then
click OK. Restart the computer and check.
be absolutely certain that you have entered the correct password for
the
account in question. If you want
to be really safe you could create a second local account before doing
this so that you have a backup way to get into the system should you
fatFinger
your password.
There is also a good article outlining this option and a registry hack
(which I don't recommend) on tenforums entitled,
Sign in User Account Automatically at Windows 10 Startup.

You can totally remove the pin/password, which I really don't advise
doing.

To do that, go to control panel, then users.

The better method, for security sake in my opinion is to keep the
password, but just have it log you on automatically.

To do this, you can set it up through the auto logon dialog. To get
there, go to the run dialog with windows+R, then type in

control userpasswords2

Then hit enter.

This dialog should be quite self explanitory, but if you need help, let
us know. Be very very very careful when putting in your password here
for the
system to log you on. If you do this wrong, and you're the only user
account on the system, you'll lock yourself out forever more unless you
use hacking
tools to get yourself back in, but I won't go there for legality
reasons. The reason is, it'll be trying to put that mistyped password
in, and rejecting
it, thereby not giving you a chance to do anything more.

I have a friend who had Windows 7, and he did this very thing, and oh!
God, what a mess it was! We got him back in, but if I told you how,
I'd
have to
kil ya. LOL!

The point is, be careful. As long as you are so though, you'll be just
fine, and it'll do exactly what you need it to do.

Have you tried the troubleshooter for fixing windows update in the control panel?

Brian,
I recently tried updating from 1909 to build 20h2 but had the same problem that I did last summer when trying to update to 2004 – couldn’t access start menu or Action Center, and likely other issues I had not yet found. I’m kind of leery about trying again to update to 20h2 but won’t know if I have this same experience unless I do the update but wonder if there is anything after the update that could fix this problem once and for all? the update itself that I recently tried went smoothly, no problems detected, but something in that update has caused the above problem. Is there anything I can do with the update process to keep the start menu & Action Centers functioning?
Thanks,
BP

Which clearly indicates that something is broken in the Windows Update process.  Again, your best and easiest solution is:  Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file

Get the 20H2 ISO and do one.

January 2021 cumulative update: KB4598242/build 19042.746 #KBAlert

 

Hi all,

First, you may have noticed that the build shown is 19042 only. This is in line with the KB alert policy where the previous build is mentioned up to 60 days after the next feature update is released. For build 19041, the 60-day period ended in December. The next KB alert for 19041 will be sent in coming December when it goes out of support.

 

January 2021 cumulative update (KB4598242/build 19042.746) is on your way:

January 12, 2021—KB4598242 (OS Builds 19041.746 and 19042.746) (microsoft.com)

 

Changelog:

• Updates to improve security when using external devices, such as game controllers, printers, and web cameras.

• Updates to improve security when Windows performs basic operations.

 

Details:

• Addresses a security vulnerability issue with HTTPS-based intranet servers. After installing this update, HTTPS-based intranet servers cannot, by default, use a user proxy to detect updates. Scans using these servers will fail if you have not configured a system proxy on the clients. If you must use a user proxy, you must configure the behavior using the policy “Allow user proxy to be used as a fallback if detection using system proxy fails.” To ensure the highest levels of security, also use Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) Transport Layer Security (TLS) certificate pinning on all devices. This change does not affect customers who are using HTTP WSUS servers. For more information, see Changes to scans, improved security for Windows devices.

• Addresses a security bypass vulnerability that exists in the way the Printer Remote Procedure Call (RPC) binding handles authentication for the remote Winspool interface. For more information, see KB4599464.

• Security updates to Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Windows Media, Windows Fundamentals, Windows Kernel, Windows Cryptography, Windows Virtualization, Windows Peripherals, and Windows Hybrid Storage Services.  

 

Cheers,

Joseph
