  1. Can not update Windows 10


    Prior to yesterday I've had no problems installing any updates. Yesterday when I went to shut down my computer, I selected to update and shut down. This morning when I started my computer I noticed the Start was still showing that it needed to install an update. so I selected to update and restart. 3 times a tried "Update and Restart" and it still shows that a update had not installed. so 4 times I tried "Update and Shutdown". That did not work either, so decided to so to settings and install the update there. When I started Settings, "Something went wrong. Try to reopen settings later". And hour later I tried Settings again with the same results.


    What can I try next?

    :)

    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
