    Microsoft support for Windows 8 has now ended.

    The screenshot does not show any end of support date for Windows 8. It just mentions the end date of Windows 8 which is in 2023. I believe updating from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 is easy and free. And there is not much difference between Windows 8 and 8.1 apart from Windows the start menu. I am...

    Intune training

    Perhaps, this course might help: It can be finished from start to end within a few days. Even less than 5 days if you can learn non-stop for a huge amount of time everyday. Note: I do not endorse this course. Be your own judge and decide whether...

    Everything windows

    IMO the best file server options are un-RAID, FreeNAS, and windows (server), depending on what you want to do. Windows server is probably the easiest to handle for non-Linux people, but also the most expensive. In normal windows, much of the awesome functionality is a bit hidden. Unraid is a...

    What Is The Cheapest, Lightweight, Antivirus Software

    The cheapest and the lightest Anti-Virus that I use is Malwarebytes. It is incredibly small at less than 50 MB. And it protects you from harm by nipping it in the bud itself. So go for Malwarebytes or go for Windows Defender. Your choice.

    Windows Equivalent of Xvfb?

    I found a freeware program called "RunProcess.exe" written by Frank P. Westlake that can run a process bound to the desktop of a non-interactive (e.g. off-screen) WindowStation. However, there is no source. Therefore I've implemented my own version (simpler than Frank Westlake's) with Java and...

Use a USB drive flashed with the latest Windows 8.1 compatible BIOS firmware flashed into it and then install that on your laptop. Then make a...

    Update Delayed

    The pandemic caused the project to update Windows to delay itself. They would probably release the updates combed together with the next update. As the next update cycle is not far away.
