    Is time running out on upgrading from Win 7 to Win 10?

    The free upgrade actually still works even in the Windows 11 beta. You can upgrade directly from Windows 7 to Windows 11 and end up with an activated copy of Windows 11. The hardware checks during Windows 11 install are easy to bypass, and once you do that, Windows 11 will install and run...

    Apple recalls M1 due to screens cracking

    Given how expensive Apple laptops are, you'd think quality control would be better. I guess you can only expect so much when it comes from China. Not long ago it was the cheap keyboards wearing out and breaking way too quickly. Or maybe this is a side effect of having "form over function" as...

    Windows 11 May Not Run on Early Ryzen, Threadripper, Skylake-X, or Any Pre-2016 Intel PC

    It dynamically expands as the number of icons on the taskbar increases, but it's always still on the left side of the group. If you are that worried about the time it takes you to click on the Start Menu, to the extent that you think this change will make you a less efficient worker, then maybe...

    Anybody upgrade an Intel Compute Stick to Windows 10?

    Well, you can't upgrade from 32-bit to 64-bit. You would need to do a clean install of Windows 10 64-bit. Or, potentially upgrade your existing install to Windows 10 32-bit. The Windows 10 install files that you put on the USB drive, were they for the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows 10?

    Anybody upgrade an Intel Compute Stick to Windows 10?

    Is the Compute Stick currently running a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows 8?

    Windows Server 2022 posted to MVLS

    I'm running Windows 11 just fine on my X99 / 5820k system right now. It would require far less effort to do the one-time bypass during the Windows 11 install than try to convert Server 2019 or 2022 into a desktop OS. Windows 11 also has a lot of nice features like Auto-HDR, and Android app...

    Windows 11 May Not Run on Early Ryzen, Threadripper, Skylake-X, or Any Pre-2016 Intel PC

    Having the start menu all the way to the left feels quirky on an ultra-wide also, and it's a big part of the reason why the start menu has been moved to the center by default on Windows 11.

    Anybody upgrade an Intel Compute Stick to Windows 10?

    Plugging in an empty USB drive and hoping that Windows will actually utilize it is really not the same as actually loading the Windows install files on the USB drive manually and initiating the install/upgrade directly from the setup.exe on the flash drive. You really want as few temporary...

    Windows 11 May Not Run on Early Ryzen, Threadripper, Skylake-X, or Any Pre-2016 Intel PC

    Maybe the "janky" apps have something to do with the "weird glitches or broken taskbars"? It always amuses me when people install all kinds of oddball 3rd party programs to change UI elements and then complain when stuff ends up broken. Relying on 3rd party apps like that might have been more...

    Anybody upgrade an Intel Compute Stick to Windows 10?

    How are you trying to upgrade? Are you trying to do it via Windows Update or similar? If so, it will first attempt to download the install files onto the tiny storage of the compute stick, and then install the OS. Those temporary install files might be taking up unnecessary space that could...

    How much do you get out of Videogames today?

    I really enjoy World of Warcraft just as I have over the course of most of the last 16+ years. While I enjoy the game itself, it's also the community aspect that keeps me playing. Being part of a guild, being part of a raid team, etc, feels very rewarding as far as games go. I know several...

    Microsoft broke Windows 11 injecting ads

    It was a response to your meme which I didn't feel was particularly "constructive". I didn't think that your post was a violation of the forum rules, I just thought that your post was stupid, and quite frankly, not representative of the situation at hand. If you feel strongly that my post was...

    Constant Outages with Xfinity

    You aren't giving us a lot to go on. You said that you tried several modems. Do any of them allow you to view your SNR and power levels? That can give you an indication of what the problem might be.

    Thought I got an Amazon Warehouse Deal on an H115i All-in-one

    Pretty lame, but Amazon still deserves at least some of the blame for not even inspecting the package. They just take whatever someone else returns and turn around and sell it again without even inspecting it? Also, you said that you bought a H115i but the box says H100i? Surely Amazon at...
