    Do You Want or Need An Older Version Of Windows 10?


    This is most likely known. There is a very easy way to get the version of Win 10 you want or need?? There is an APP that many of us have used... Rufus. You can use Rufus to retrieve most of the relevant versions of Windows 10. I have tested this, and it worked perfectly for me. I have an older system I am working with, 1903, and I needed 1909 to do what I needed. I searched Google and found it. "Google Is Your Friend" Have you used Rufus for this? If not, Why? Or will you now? Has this changed your view of Rufus?

    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

  3. Swapping to an older version of windows

    Is there still an official way to drop back to an older version of windows, I honestly don't mind using a 3rd party way. If possible, can you list step by step instructions or a link to an easy to use website. Thanks.
