WINDOW 10 - Major Update
« on: August 08, 2019, 08:07:13 AM »
I would imagine most of you who purchased the 'legal' version of Window 10 have received the notice that the current version would not be supported after May, 2020.  So, you needed to allow Microsoft update your computer.

The first issue I ran into was the need to update the Intel's RST memory app BEFORE Microsoft could update 10.  (I have a Dell Inspiron 15.)  After several weeks of procrastinating (actually concerned that I would not be able to do it myself and screw up my machine), but finally I did what Microsoft instructed me to do.  Simple case!!

Then I saw how long it took my wife's computer to update her '10', over ONE HOUR!

Then it was my turn.  Yep, did it without any help.  It took my computer ONE AND ONE-HALF HOURS to do the update.

That was Wednesday.  Today, Thursday, Microsoft issued a minor update that required restarting the computer, both hers and mine.

All is good!
So now, I am up and operating as usual.  Seems that the applications are running a bit faster (not the initial start up.)

[font=]I didn't get that, I think I was just looking for updates and let it go through when it said there was a W10 update.[/font]
[font=]It took 4 hours!!![/font]

[font=]If anyone is doing this and sees a screen saying "downloading-100%" and it seems to have frozen at this point, it hasn't, just leave it for as long as it takes.[/font]

I did the Major Update Saturday and I have had nothing but trouble with my files and I cannot open my photos. Microsoft has changed my settings so that when I try to open a photo it comes up "this media is write protected" and I just cannot open an individual photo It only opens in the other apps, so I have had to change all my default settings. The setting that I had for my photos was "Photo" which is the recommended default app for the photos but it is the one that would not open my photos but came up "this media is Write protected so I have had to change to "Galleries" app which is not the windows 10 app. Plus when I click on a link in an email it used to open in the web browser automatically and show on the screen but now it will not open the web browser and I need to wait until the web browser icon in the task bar starts to blink and then click on it to open what was sent to it. My update took around 4 hours on Saturday plus another 30 minutes on Sunday.
