    Windows 10 commands/shortcuts/env. var.

    Keyboard shortcuts to open programs:

    Create a shortcut on the desktop to whatever program you want. Right click -> Properties and fill in the field there. Sadly the shortcut needs to remain on the desktop, but you can hide it.

    Fun fact: If you had keyboard shortcuts for programs pinned to your Windows 7 start menu, those shortcuts still work when you update to Windows 10.

    Windows Time (clock) out of sync

    Since the last update, I had on my windows 10 - 64bit pro, the time is out of sync whenever I boot up the windows.

    set time automatically & set timezone automatically are
    ON and selected timezone (grayed out) is also correctly showing my town, but the time is wrong. I should always turn the setTimeAuto OFF and ON then windows syncs the clock, and on next shutdown and boot up, again the same problem.

    • set time automatically -> ON
    • set timezone automatically -> ON
    • change date and time -> grayed out
    • TimeZone -> grayed out and correct chosen city
    • adjust for daylight saving time automatically -> ON grayed out
    • don't show additional calendars
    • internet time settings -> sync with time server ~ time.windows.com & time.nist.gov (tried both)
