    This obviously isn't the case, just managed to contact MS and according to them I need to upgrade from W8.1. But tThanks for the quick reply.

    Do I actually need to upgrade from 8.1 Pro to 10 Pro

    As I understand it, users who took part in the IP programme received a free final version of W10 which would obviate the need to upgrade from W8.1.

    Do I actually need to upgrade from 8.1 Pro to 10 Pro

    I've been running W10 ( alongside W8.1 Pro ) ever since the first technical preview and now have an activated W10 Pro ( insider preview ). Is this the final version or do I still need to upgrade from W8.1 ?

    Insider Preview Taskbar reverts to one line view after reboot

    Even after setting the taskbar to two line view ( so I can see the complete day, date and time ) and locking it, it always reverts to one line view after a reboot. This has occurred with each release of W10 TP I've tried, does anybody have a solution for this.

    Can I change the number of emails displayed per page in Outlook.com ?

    Thanks for the info David. I'm actually using Gmail ( with 20 entries per page ) but due to some annoyances with it I was thinking of returning to Outlook.

    Can I change the number of emails displayed per page in Outlook.com ?

    The number of emails displayed per page in Outlook.com is 35 ( reading pane is off ), does anybody know how to reduce this to 25 so that I don't need to scroll down ? I realise that I can obviate scrolling by reducing the zoom from 100% to 75% but I don't find that very comfortable, the text...

    Delay displaying My Downloads in Windows Explorer

    Hi Joe - haven't used AVG for a while so that's not the cause. The problem is not that it's slow to display the contents of any particular file ( assuming it's displayable ) but that it takes so long to display the files in the Downloads folder after clicking on it, the green status bar takes an...

    Delay displaying My Downloads in Windows Explorer

    Download locations on both PCs were indexed and neither are network locations just separate data partitions. Disabled indexing on the laptop with the SSD ( I seem to recall it isn't necessary for SSDs ) but that didn't help. The PCs are manually synced with MS SyncToy once a week, I've been...

    Delay displaying My Downloads in Windows Explorer

    For a while now I've had an annoying problem when using Windows Explorer under Windows 7 - if I click on My Documents, My Pictures etc. then the files, and their associated icons and chosen details, appear almost instantaneously yet if I click on My Downloads then it takes an age before...

    should I get rid off hiberfile on my SSD ?

    I realise that the OS is constantly writing to the disc but the post referred to the use of, or not, the hibernate file with an SSD and that is what I gave my experience of and opinion on, including its probable neglible effect on the overall life cycle of the SSD.

    should I get rid off hiberfile on my SSD ?

    As I understand it one of the determining factors of the life of an SSD is the number of write cycles made to the device, which is precisely what hibernate does. I used to use hibernate when everything was on an HDD but since I swapped over to an SSD for my OSs ( W7 & W8 ) in my desktop the...

    Remapping Fn keys

    Hi Zirkoni - I don't know whether it's me ( probably ) or the system but I'm not getting what I expect. The only way to create the file was to first copy/paste your code into a txt file and then change the extension to ahk. If I then right click on it I get options to Open, Open with etc. but no...

    Remapping Fn keys

    According to RandyRants website Posted on: February 07, 2012 at 10:01 PM by Randy @mgm - nope. From the FAQ: "SharpKeys only remaps whole keys rather than a modified key. For example, you can remap Ctrl or C but you can't remap Ctrl+C to another key." Or can I do it with the above code...
