Subject: [win10] classic youtube downloder link?

 

Hello all, I was participating in a thread on here a few weeks back, and someone said that they would post a link that is for the youtube to mp3 converter.  The regular link and download that I have tried since getting this new computer hasn’t worked at all.  Any information would be helpful, and thanks in advance.

Re: What do you think of quick start?

Brian Vogel <britechguy@...>
 

By "Quick Start" I presume you mean "Fast Startup,"  which I've posted on many times before.

It is, indeed, a variant on hibernation and when enabled and you shut down your computer it does not do a conventional, complete shutdown but a hibernation file is created that includes only the Operating System state information, not that and the User Program state information which is what a full hibernation contains.  You will not get a Windows Startup sound, even if enabled, if Fast Startup is enabled because the system is, literally, not starting up.

With the advent of Fast Startup (which was with Windows 8) as far as I'm concerned shutdown became relatively meaningless and restart, which forces a completely from scratch reload of the OS, began behaving as I would actually expect a full shutdown to act.

I absolutely despise Fast Startup because hibernation files can and do get corrupted and some very, very weird things can begin to occur once that happens.  Now, if you know that a Restart causes a fresh OS load from the disc drive you can simply use that technique to cause the existing mini-hiberfile that's been being used to wake up from a shutdown to be tossed.  That, however, is not known by most nor intuitive.

I turn off Fast Startup on any machine I configure because of the issue with hiberfile corruption and because, when I choose shut down, I fully expect a full, complete shut down, not some variant on hibernation.  I actually use full hibernation a lot, but I know that I'm doing it and do it so that my current user state is saved when I fire up the machine again.

Re: What do you think of quick start?

Dane Trethowan <grtdane@...>
 

No its quick start is nothing like that.


All Quick start does is rearranges the way programmes start up on your machine so yes, the boot time process is faster but more programmes start up after the actual boot process is completed so the length of the actual start up process may not vary all that much.

Hi Group,

What do you guys all think of the quick start in W10? When a person uses the quick start I assume the pc is not shut all the way down and is in a sleep or hibernation mode. Is this correct or not. I would think having the pc shut down completely would be better as than when you turned it back on than everything would be cleaned up. What is all you guys opinion on this. Also some time my pc start in quick start and sometimes it start up playing the windows sound which than I know it is coming on from a complete shutdown. Not sure why it does this.

Any thoughts?

Bob,

No, you should not wait, as the Anniversary Update is going to take place almost simultaneously with the termination of the free upgrade period. I know that a special extension has already been granted for users of assistive technology, but no one seems to know how one goes about dealing with that in any specific way.

Windows 10 continues to update itself to the latest build available for your specific hardware on an ongoing basis, and will apply the Anniversary Update when it is released on your machine without any intervention from you (or very minimal intervention, if you set things up to download but let you choose the time to install).

Re: Before doing a Windows 10 Upgrade . . .

Brian Vogel <britechguy@...>
 

I wanted to bump this because, for Windows 7 users in particular (but it applies to Windows 8/8.1, too), it is a very good idea to run the System File Checker command before you take your backup and before you attempt your upgrade to Windows 10.

See the attached files for details.  The first deals only with how to run SFC and/or DISM.  The second is an updated version of my guide on how to safely upgrade to Windows 10 that now includes this information as step one, even before doing a full system backup.

Hi, wont there be any possibility for this issue be resolved in the
win 10 builds being released periodically by MS techies?
Or it's something to do as settings from user side?

Hi,



It surprises me that a fix that Microsoft releases, the authors of W10,
doesn’t work but that seems to be the case.

I suppose a macro could be written, if all else fails, to play a sound as it
runs the shut down sequence but this would not be as good as a Win shutdown
sound.

There is no way I was able to get a shutdown sound using most of the

hack is one.

I was trying to do a workaround using a utility called Wizmo and I guess I
should get back to working on that.

Lino,

        Has it ever worked?   My gut tells me that you're experiencing an issue setting up this e-mail account using the "full automatic" feature for lookup for server settings.  While most "are out there" a number are not and you need to manually configure your server settings.  I've had to do this for Cox cable accounts and a couple of others recently, but I never remember which ones specifically because it's a one time shot and I don't have to think about it until I encounter that situation again.

Let's just be very clear, so he doesn't pannick. Ben, the Windows anniversary update that Lino is referring to will still be Windows 10, and don't fret. It will definitely still work with jaws. There will be quite a few improvement/enhancements, but nothing at all that will be a showstopper.

what others use for antivirus protection? I'm looking for something that is
accurate, preferably free, (that knocks Norton and Mcafee out), and is not a
resource hog (Norton and Mcafee again). I'd appreciate any suggestions.

My second question has to do with the differences in speech in 10 vs.
7. For example in 7 NVDA or jaws would both announce progress messages,
during installs or other activities. They would both also announce verbally
that I could now remove a now detached USB device.
In 10 neither of these things happen. Is there some tweak I need to make?

Thanks.
