    Windows Themes

    Tried to put a new theme for Windows 10 and find that those taken from the Microsoft app store just won't apply although they show as downloaded and even appear in the personalise menu right click on the desktop. Have tried wsreset several times but it makes no difference. The themes show as...

    Computer Password

    I have lost my main login password and only have the correct pin and this pin box is what appears for login and so I can access the welcome screen and proceed. Is there any way I can retrieve the password by having the correct pin? Basically, I want to bypass the login and welcome screen and...

    Gmail Missing a Letter

    I have a list of many passwords and will be using this also. I will be turning off autofill if I stil can't find an entry which is causing this omission. Many thanks all for your replies.

    Gmail Missing a Letter

    Yes and I deleted any double entries but still cannot trace where this is coming from. At least now I can watch out for it or turn off infill completely.

    Gmail Missing a Letter

    I use autofill for my gmail address and lately I notice that some boxes automatically fill in with the 'c' of 'com' missing and others don't. I am looking out for it now I have noticed and puzzled over missing auto confirmation emails, and manually insert the missing 'c'. How and where do I...

    Metered Updates Windows 10

    So updates needed for the working and security of the computer will get installed regardless of the metered connection? So I can just leave it be?

    Metered Updates Windows 10

    I am satisfied with the way my computer is now working with the new monitor and obviously don't miss any benefits of the update. What concerns me is can I leave it on metered indefinitely without missing out on a vital update to the working of the computer. Otherwise I am content to let well...

    Metered Updates Windows 10

    I believe this is how he got the connection to work. Previously the screen just said it could not detect HDMI. All now works well, apart from the update issue. I am afraid to take it off metered, as it will immediately try to install the 1709 update which caused the wipeout last time. Then...

    Metered Updates Windows 10

    I had to go to a techie to get all things working and he updated all the drivers and especially the video drivers and found the correct adapters to get the new screen connected. He put the system on metered and said it would avoid large updates, which it has, but I wanted things to work...

    Metered Updates Windows 10

    Following a crash on trying to install the 1709 update, I lost my HDMI connection and could only put things right by bringing back an old monitor to get a screen and then uninstalling the update. The desktop computer is now on metered and bypasses this update though I see it tries occasionally...

    Windows 10 Updates

    I am reasonably diligent with backups on to an external drive, but of course the main problem is always going to be the lack of connection between computer and monitor! Last time I had to get the old monitor down from the attic in order to be able to do anything - and the techie took both away...

    Windows 10 Updates

    Thanks again, you have been most helpful and I will very soon back up and deal properly with this problem, but still would not attempt to install the Creator 1709 until the net is clear of others with the same result. I personally think that Microsoft ought to reimburse my bill for getting the...

    Windows 10 Updates

    Thank you very much for all the advice which I have kept for the time when I shall have to pluck up the courage to get installing. Do you know how to take the computer off metered connection?

    Windows 10 Updates

    Many thanks for your help. My main problem is that I would not be able to uninstall anything as the connection goes down and I have no screen - hence my hesitation now! On looking on the net, I see others have had problems with HDMI following the 1709 update and I would not contemplate...
