  1. End all current user processes via shortcut


    adwcleaner dose a neat thing where it closes all user processes, can I batch run that to a short cut key? 2 or 4 times a week my win10 lags hard from either search indexing or a virus scan or to much mem in use, if I can flush most user processes then I can at least use my PC some...

  2. How to create folders in Windows 10 Start Menu? Problems with shortcuts

    Some weeks ago I could create folders in the Start Menu of Windows 10; now I cannot.

    I cannot do this in the Current User Start Up folder (in App folder; access by means of Alt+R, shell:start menu) nor in the All Users Start Up folder (in ProgramData; access by means of Alt+R, shell:common start menu). In both cases I can create the
    folder but it does not appear in the Start Menu.

    Also: If I copy shortcuts from the Desktop to these Star Menu folders, the shortcuts do not appear in the Start Menu. Even the option to create shortcuts does not appear in the contextual menu (right mouse click) of the All Users Start Menu folder.
    The only way I found to create shortcuts to these folders is: create a shortcut in the Current User folder and copy it, if desired, to the All Users folder. To create a shortcut to the Current User folder I can also copy the EXE file and paste it in the current
    user folder as a shortcut.

    Can all this be solved in my computer, or it is the normal way the current version of Windows 10 works?

  3. shortcuts for all users

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.



    I understand that you wish to allow access to the desktop shortcuts for all users.



    I suggest you to navigate to "C:\Users\Public\Desktop" (you'll need to unhide hidden files and folders first), then paste the shortcuts.



    Hope it helps.



    Let us know if you have any further query on Windows, we are glad to assist you further.

    End all current user processes via shortcut

    Hi, maybe you need to work out what's actually going on, than deal with the symptoms.

    Search indexing by default indexes very little. It backs off (or should do) as soon as the PC is deemed 'in use'. It's not meant to impose a noticeable load. If you get periodic instances of that happening, something's wrong.

    Try for starters
    From an admin command prompt
    [Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
    chkdsk C: /F
    Your PC will need to restart.
    Make sure the result is clear or fixed- else do not proceed.
    Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:
    How do I see the results of a CHKDSK that ran on boot? - Ask Leo!

    If that fixes things and is clear, try rebuilding your index. As it's indexing (see Control Panel, Indexing Options) try using your PC and noting the indexing pauses (which it should do).

    Turning to 'too much mem in use' - you have 16Gb RAM, so I find that puzzling. Have you done anything to change your page file settings? If so, set them back to e.g. System Managed for your C: drive.
