  1. Best tutorials/resources for understanding Windows 10 in general


    Hi, can anyone refer me to good information to understand how Win 10 is works or is organized? I use it for general purpose things regularly, but I feel pretty ignorant about anything at all "under the hood", and would like to get better sense of this. I have some *quite* limited software development experience (read: basically just Javascript) and so I do actually want technical explanations as long as they are relatively beginner-friendly.

    Two thoughts -
    a) in particular it would be nice to have a better grasp of the file structure, and how Windows manages its own operations and those of other things you have installed.
    b) it seems sort of like Win 10 puts some sort of wrapper around Win 7. For example, "control panel" is still available if you Win-key and search for it; but on the Win10 Start-menu UI there is the "settings" gear (with many of the same options organized differently. ) What is up with this?

    Apologies if this post is a bit vague - I'm sort of poking around for info, and don't really know precisely which questions to ask to alleviate the general confusion I have with Win 10.

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.

    Best tutorials/resources for understanding Windows 10 in general

    DirectX Raytracing Tutorials

    This repository contain tutorials demonstrating how to use DirectX Raytracing. Under the Tutorials folder you can find Word documents going over the code, explaining how to use the API.

    Requirements:

    • Windows 10 RS4. Follow the instructions on the DirectX forums.
    • Windows 10 SDK 10.0.16299.91.
    • Visual Studio 2015.
    • You do not need to download the DXR SDK, it is packaged with the tutorials.
    • Open the solution, build it, knock yourself out.
    Unsurprisingly the samples don't run on Redstone 3 (missing procedure entry points in runtimes).
    I'll recheck next month with Redstone 4.

    Windows 10 resource usage: One of the good things is the small footprint of Windows 10. In my installation it uses only 8.5GB on the C partition and less than 500MB of RAM. I am sure that willl grow somewhat with the RTM edition, but it is a good start. [img] [img] 2548
