  1. Having a hard time resetting Windows 10 computer after 11 yr old locked herself out


    Help! I recently purchased a laptop for my daughter. She created an admin acct and immediately forgot her password. I have tried to reset it but it is requiring I free up space. Of course I cannot free up space because we cannot sign in. Is there a workaround? Or am I stuck bringing it to a tech who will charge me about as much as I paid for it. Help as I am becoming so frustrated.

    :)

  2. Internet Explorer 11 Synced Very Old Favorites ( 5 Yrs. ago items )

    Hi People,

    I were troubleshooting IE11 in my end user's PC. Issue is after resetting IE11, added Favorites bar.

    In that Favorites bar, IE11 synced very old Favorites that includes 5 yrs of favorites. Due to this more than 1000 of Favs mingled with recent ones.

    Please suggest me troubleshooting steps to follow.

    Thanks.

    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
