    System Hardware Update 1/27/2015

    I could not care less about getting future builds. Automatically, that is. I already edited my registry to restore WU to its normal behavior. When a new build is available, I will download the ISO and run setup at my convenience. That said, my experience is that this particular update has been...

    Anyone planning on trying Windows 10 Preview tomorrow?

    I installed it last night on my SP3. I was very surprised at how quickly it installed. Everything seems fine. I still have to disable/enable my wifi adapter occasionally but I wasn't expecting a fix for a bad driver in a new os. Took about 5 minutes to tour the new old start menu, and figure...

    Domain Pswd Surface Pro factory reset

    In the phone forums, I see people get accused of theft when asking such a question. If it's yours, they would say, should you not be able to log in? If it's someone else's, can't they give you the password? I'm not accusing you of anything. But some more information that proves you are not a...

    microsoft complete. word of warning

    You'll get a unit that is predestined for warranty replacements, packed in a warranty return box; either new or refurbished who can tell - probably determined by whether they have refurb or new stock on hand at the time - but covered "as new" regardless, per the terms of the warranty. What...

    Looks like KB2881553 is broken again.

    KB2881553 is "Update for the English Input Personalization Dictionary" and contains updated "autocorrect" rules for the touch keyboard. An updated version is released approximately every day or so. Every machine I have seen it offered on will install it, then it is immediately available again...

    Solved The tablet that can replace your laptop - It is not a lie!

    It replaced my laptop. It could have replaced my desktop machine at work, but I could not resist that $150 touchscreen from Newegg to turn it into a 'big surface'. It will replace my desktop at home, just need to get a USB optical drive. And it will replace my iPad which is used only for playing...

    September Patch Tuesday - No WiFi Fix for SP3

    I deleted the network bridge and re-enabled everything but the multiplexor protocol on the WiFi adapter. Now it seems things are working normally (cross fingers!) If I plug my USB Ethernet+hub and cable, it configures and works and uses its faster connection primarily, when disconnected WiFi is...

    September Patch Tuesday - No WiFi Fix for SP3

    I was, but uninstalled it after encountering many WiFi-related bluescreens. I also occasionally use a USB gigabit adapter, maybe that caused it to be added? I think I shall delete the bridge and just go with a direct connection.

    Phone compatibility

    Unfortunately the amount of connection between a Windows Phone and a Windows network, i.e. Active Directory domain, is: none at all. I would love to be able to domain-join my Windows Phone and access network resources such as shared files and printers. There is some enterprise functionality...

    September Patch Tuesday - No WiFi Fix for SP3

    Regarding the WiFi issue, I notice a Network Bridge. What is this for? None of my other Windows 8.1 computers have it.
