Windows 10 allows you to create a user account for each person who uses your computer or device, so that you can keep things separate between users. Obviously, each user account has a password that must be typed in order to login. If you need to change your password, because it has been compromised or just because you want to, you should read this article. We will show you how to change the password of a Microsoft account, in Windows 10, as well as the password of a local account.

Get your original analogue clock back in Win 10
« Reply #16 on: November 14, 2015, 03:57:53 AM »
I saw this on another site Im on and thought I would share with you guys.......

1.  Click on the Start Menu icon and type regedit.
2.  After you've done that, please go to the following directory: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\ImmersiveShell
3.  Once you are there, please go to Edit → New → DWORD (32-bit) Value
4.  Now name the value that you created UseWin32TrayClockExperience.
5.  By default, your value will be set to 0 which is going to by default have the new design. What you're going to want to do is right click on the value that you named UseWin32TrayClockExperience and click Modify....
6.  Once you've done that, please set the value to 1. Now you will have the analog clock that you're used to.

Im on Win98se but im sure there are some who would love the original clock back..


Edit by Corrine:  Always back up the registry before making changes.

Free antispy tool for Windows 10:

O&O ShutUp 10:

Quote
O&O ShutUp10 means you have full control over which comfort functions under Windows 10 you wish to use, and you decide when the passing on of your data goes too far.
Using a very simple interface, you decide how Windows 10 should respect your privacy by deciding which unwanted functions should be deactivated.

http://www.oo-software.com/en/us/shutup10


My search: DR-Radio/TV Denmark
There is other software made with the same goal in mind.
See: http://www.ghacks.net/2015/08/14/comparison-of-windows-10-privacy-tools/

BTW: After I applied the big November update, I noticed that telemetry was enabled again.
Could be expected, without assuming any malice from MS, it was pretty much like installing a new OS.
I ran "Shutup10" again.

A reasonable explanation about privacy in Windows 10 and how to change the settings in What Windows 10's "Privacy Nightmare" Settings Actually Do.

Whether you have been using Windows 10 for a short time or for a long time, a casual PC user or a power user, Power Tools for Windows 10 - Microsoft Virtual Academy, by Ed Bott with Jennelle Crothers, is a great resource.  I is filled with helpful information and tips and I highly recommend it.

How to use 'Refresh Windows' to do a clean install of Windows 10 Anniversary Update:

Quote
The Windows 10 Anniversary Update includes an easier way to refresh your computer and remove bloatware, and here we tell you how to use the new tool.
When your computer is not working properly, or you simply want a setup free of bloatware, the best solution is to start from scratch doing a clean install of Windows 10 Anniversary Update. However, it can be a tedious process, and even though Microsoft offers a reset feature to reinstall the operating system, it only restores the copy of Windows 10 that originally came with your computer, which may also contain a lot of software and configurations you don't need.

If you've used Windows 10 for a while, you might have noticed that the "old ways" of booting into Safe Mode no longer work. By that, we mean trying things like pressing the F8 or Shift + F8 keys on your keyboard while booting. These methods stopped working in normal cases because the boot procedure became faster than ever before. Such actions simply don't work. But that doesn't mean Windows 10 has no Safe Mode. It's just that to get to it, you have to follow other procedures. Let's take a closer look and see how you can get into Safe Mode in Windows 10.
