    How to one-time delete folder without change owner or disable UAC?

    So although my (=the current) user is member of the group of administrators I cannot delete some files? I though "administrator" group users are allowed to do everything. Do I have to add some special permissions (how?) to be able to delete every file and folder (even from other owners)?

    How to create manually a System Retore Point from cmdline/with 1 click?

    Ok, I can create manually a SRP by navigate with lots of clicks to the Win10 built-in dialog. But I prefer a much simpler way to do this with as few clicks as possible. Is there a built-in cmdline command which let me do that? Something like createsrp.exe -label "my sysrestpoint 123" On...

This is because the...

    Uninstall in "Apps & features" = Uninstall through other Win tools?

    When I read Win10 tutorials about uninstallation of previously installed programs then they always refer to the dialog "Apps & features" to uninstall them. I wonder whether it is possible to uninstall the same programs as well with the well known (old) Win7 uninstaller tools like Reve...

    MS OneDrive Program necessary to run Win10? De-installation?

    As far as I can see MS OneDrive is (oftentimes) pre-installed on Win10 systems. Can I uninstall this "Feature"/Program without affecting Win10? When I setup my Win10 computer I did NOT specify a MS account. I use just local accounts. Peter

    Assume I boot Win10 but do NOT login. So currently the Login=Welcome screen is visible. Does Win10 in this state (auto)search for updates, download and install them? In other words: Is auto-update Win10 user-independent or a user login required? Related question: From Android it is known...

    As you known there are many sofwtare tools available which offer not only a setup.exe but an ISO to download. This ISO can either be burned on a CD/DVD or put onto an USB Flash drive. I am NOT talking about Win10 ISO images but other software like (examples): - Gparted GParted -- Live...

    I have a (new) Acer Swift notebook which does not allow to switch/enable Legacy BIOS mode. So I can only disable "Secure Boot" and use UEFI.
