  1. Is it safe to combine/delete these partitions?


    As the title says, I took a look into Disk Management on Windows 10 and am wondering if its safe to combine the two recovery partitions which are Disk 0 partition 1 and Disk 0 partition 4. (I've read that Windows creates a new partition every time there is a Windows Update so is it possible to combine or is it safe to delete one or both of the recovery partitions?)

    Also, what is the EFI System Partition (Disk 0 partition 2)? Is it safe to delete this as well or do I need to keep it?

    And lastly, I have 15 MB of Unallocated and wish to combine it with my C: drive. Extend volume doesn't work so I'm kind of stuck on what to do.

    Here is a screenshot of what I am referring to. Thanks!

    Problem with a combine taskbar icons.

    Hello,

    In Windows 10, you can personalize the settings of your taskbar. If there are multiple applications opened, same applications will be combined under one taskbar button. If you want to change this setting, we suggest that you follow the steps listed below:

    • Press the Start button.
    • Click on the Settings app.
    • Select Personalization.
    • At the left side of your window, click on Taskbar.
    • Under Combine taskbar buttons, choose Never.

    Kindly update us with the results and if you have further queries, feel free to post back.
     
  3. New FF - passwords

    Hi:

    If that setting is already enabled, then I suggest as the next troubleshooting step might be Mozilla Safe Mode (not to be confused with Windows Safe Mode)):

    Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode | Firefox Help


    • Please report back and let us know the outcome, as it will dictate the next steps.
    • Also: please tell us what AV/AM/firewall programs are you running on this system?

    Thanks,

    Password not accepted in Safe mode

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I understand the inconvenience caused to you. I will be glad to assist you with your issue.

    Follow the below steps and check if it helps. 

    If you see the black screen or have a flickering screen:

    Step 1: Try connecting to different video outputs on the PC. Sometimes a change in driver can cause the video to be sent:

      • To a different Adapter: from integrated graphics to a discrete card or vice versa.
      • To a different output: from HDMI to DVI, Display Port to VGA, or any other combination.
    Step 2: Try to boot into Safe Mode with Networking
    or Enable low-resolution video.

      • Advanced boot options, Safe Mode with Networking, or Low Resolution Video
      • Check Device Manager and look for Display Adapters
        • If you see 2 items under Display Adapters, disable to integrated video card (e.g. Intel HD 4000 or AMD Radeon HD 4200) and restart. (try vice versa if it does not work).
        • If you see 1 item under Display Adapters, rollback the driver or uninstall the display adapter in Device Manager, and enable the option to delete driver software.
    How to boot into Safe mode.

    Run your computer in Safe mode and see if you still get that error message. If you are not getting that error message in safe mode then perform clean boot on your computer using the steps provided below. If you
    don't get that error message in safe mode then it means that some third party application is causing the problem.

    To use a Safe Boot option, follow these steps:

    • Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press the
      F8 key when the Boot Menu appears.
    • Select an option Safe mode with Networking using the arrow keys on the keyboard when the
      Windows Advanced Options menu appears, select Safe mode with Networking and then press
      ENTER.

    I would suggest you to force shutdown your system and then try to restart it again and check if you are able to login to safe boot.

    Check the PC or display adapter manufacturer’s site for an updated driver.

    Let us know the status of the issue. We will be glad to assist you.

    Thank You.
