    Cant update windows and use Microsoft store


    Every time I press "check for updates" I get the message "error encountered" and when I try to download things from the Microsoft store it wont download and I get the message "something happened on our end." Not sure why this is happening but any solutions would be appreciated.

    :)

  2. Microsoft signals end of Paint program

    Microsoft has confirmed that it will continue to offer its graphics program Paint.

    In a recent update, it had listed Paint as a feature that would be either removed or no longer developed.

    Paint, renowned for its simplicity, has been part of the Windows operating system since its launch in 1985.

    Microsoft suggested it would not remain on Windows 10 by default but did say it would be available for free on the Windows Store.
