  1. How do I stop Microsoft from changing my settings?


    I like things my way.
    I like them my way because that's the way my brain works and this is what I'm used to and what works for me.
    So how do I get MS to stop changing my settings with every. single. update?

    I don't want anything on my computer in any folder anywhere grouped by last used day/week/month. I had it all set up the way I liked it... even in the little windows where I'm looking for a save-to folder. Then the update happened. Now I don't remember how I got it all set up the way I liked it and feel like murdering whoever is responsible for the additional work I have to do to clean up somebody else's mess.

    So how do I stop you from messing with my settings?
    Have you turned on anything else?
    Have you changed the destination folder for my documents / downloads / etc?
    Have you turned on cortana or changed my privacy settings or **** with anything else on my PC that I ALREADY HAD THE WAY I LIKED IT?

    So please. Tell me: How do I prevent Microsoft from inflicting somebody else's incompetence upon me with every bloody update?

  2. Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.
    I would suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.
    Step 1:
    Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue. To do so perform the steps below.

    1. Click on the More actions icon next to the feedback icon present on top right corner of the Project Spartan homepage.
    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:
    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if the issue occurs.

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Choose Accounts and then select Family and other users.
    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.
    5. Click on Finish.
    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.

    AMD FX OC'ers Club

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.
