    How to prevent automatic app installs?

    Solved it, this requires a registry edit: Create a key "CloudContent" in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows. Inside that key create a new DWORD called "DisableWindowsConsumerFeatures" and set the value to 1.

    Windows works word processor

    Star Office? What is that? I'd use Word Viewer instead. It's a free Microsoft product made specifically to view & print Word documents (does not allow editing). There's also Excel Viewer for Excel documents. Since they are made by MS they should not have any problems viewing the documents as...

    Windows 10 Windows 10 IoT Unviersal App executable?

    Of course, but you need some kind of networking between the devices. You can do it with Azure, AllJoyn, Bluetooth (if you have a Bluetooth adapter for the Pi3), whatever... You don't even need a dedicated app on your tablet/computer. Just set up a web server on the Pi3, open a web browser and...

    Windows 10 Windows can's boot after Ubuntu install

    You're over-exaggerating. Linux distros are getting pretty good at detecting Windows and installing alongside it for dual/multi boot. I've done this several times and I've never had any problems (as far as I can remember). Although, I don't remember the last time I used the automatic "Install...

    Windows 10 Windows can's boot after Ubuntu install

    Can't you back up all your data from Ubuntu and start from scratch? Do you still have an Ubuntu live CD/USB stick? If you can't fix the boot problem then at least you should be able to boot with the live CD/USB and save your data to external storage. Then start from scratch.

    If you move the folder to some other location the gamebar will start saving all captures in the new location. I'm not sure if there is any way to set different locations for screenshots and video captures.

    Convert a notepad from hex format to text

    How to prevent automatic app installs?

    So, I guess the answer is they can't be stopped. And the same issue with system updates. I wonder how people with a dial-up connection are doing. Wait for a few days/weeks for the updates to download?

    Is there a good windows cleaning utility?

    Seriously though, I don't understand why people use cleaning programs on their Windows OS. If the OS really needs such programs don't you think Microsoft would provide one. In the worst case scenario these programs can actually do more harm than good. I've never used one and never will because...
