    Cannot play wmv files after windows 10 upgrade

    no none of this was helpful...wmv files are
    WINDOWS media files....doesn't it make sense that it should work in WIN10????!!!! It does not....there is no third party software that I am using. I am trying to open and view the file with software supplied by Microsoft with WIN 10 so why doesn't it
    work? sense this post started back in August of 2015 and there is no solution in this thread can we assume that MS doesn't know how to fix a problem they created?

  3. How do I make a third party program autorun?

    I've tried several ways on doing this but without any success. I'm trying to hide the Volume OSD that Windows 10 so retardedly puts up. The software for my hp Laptop already has a Volume and Brightness OSD, but Win10 wants to put up its own version as well.

    Also, the Login, Logoff and Exit Windows sounds don't play AT ALL! I've already tried everything I know to get this to work, but it doesn't.

    I'm starting to think that Windows 10 is another botched OS from Micro$oft.

    No Thanks. . .will stick with the new; I really am enjoying playing around with it though there are a few thing I like to see such as a pic in the start screen mode. The solid color is just boring. . .*Smile

    I've avoided installing Start8 or Classic Shell for testing purposes but when I do eventually move to Windows 10 I will use one of them. I don't like the hybrid start menu at all.

    I was bored of Windows 7 in 2009. I won't be installing any of this cruft onto my system.

    I agree, if Windows 10 stays as it is now, I most likely will use a 3rd party (Start8 is my choice). It has always worked flawlessly for me.

    Trust,

    i hope you realise that i was bored over Win 7, not Win10 although the taskbar should be improved.

    I don't understand why you directed this to me? Your post was precise and your opinion was stated clearly. If you are bored with Window 7 then fine, use 10's interface.

    I personally find Windows 7 interface, easier and more informative to use. I like being able to right click a program and see it's properties which is not available in 10. I personally find Windows 10, less informative and a downgrade from previous versions. For being able to use Modern apps in conjunction with Legacy programs, I believe Windows 8/8.1 with Start8's (window 7 menu) is a better balanced approach for me.

  12. Quite agree - no point in changing just for change - if it doesn't do what you want then, no matter what others might feel, then it's not for you.

    Personally, I used to hate Windows 8 & it's only now that I've used a trial version with Start8 that it comes into it's own. I even think that it's better than Windows 10 - just my humble onion, but I don't love it that much over Windows 7 to fork out £100 to but it!!

    A Third-Party Start Menu in Windows 10: Why It Doesn't Make Sense...

    Microsoft created the market in 3rd-party Start Menu applications with Windows 8 having a Start Screen and no Start Menu.

    While Microsoft are trying to put the Start Menu back in Windows 10, those 3rd party developers aren't going to want to give up their business too easily, so of course they will keep trying to improve on whatever version of Start Menu Microsoft finally build in W10.

    I don't see any harm in this - but I will probably stick with the W10 default.

    At the end of the day it's all about options and if some like the look/feel of another kind of start they should have the right to use it if I agree or not with it's usage. I used Classic Shell with Win8.1.1 but with Win10 I find that I just don't need it.

    Truth of the matter is: most power users love the ability to manipulate Windows, especially when there's change in the air.
    Secondly, we all love messin around with software but, unfortunately, sometimes with blatant disregard of what it does to your system.
