  1. Issue since last Windows Update 2/11/2021


    Windows is acting strange since the last update. I am currently running Windows 10 Pro Version 20H2. Here's what's happening:

    1. When I press the START key and select an application, the Start menu does not automatically disappear, but the app opens behind it. Once I click into the application the Start window closes.


    2. When I open Word 2010 , if it's a blank document, the first space is selected highlighted and you can not type anything into the document. If I open an existing document, all the text is selected and can not be unselected. I checked and the Selection Mode is unchecked in the Custom Status Bar.

    3. When I open Excel 2010, "Extended Selection" is flashing on the bottom of the page. Pressing F8 or Shift+F8 or Esc does not stop this.

    4. When I start an application from File Explorer, the icon appears in the taskbar, but the application does not open on the screen. You need to click on the taskbar item to view the application.

    5. Documents folder is now empty, but I can see all my Document subfolders under "C:\Users\<userid>\Documents". The Documents folder under This PC and Desktop properties now points to C:\Users\<userid>\OneDrive\Documents. I do not store files on OneDrive!

    6. If multiple windows are open for an application ie: File Explorer when you hover over the icon on the task bar and select one of the small popup windows, you can not select the item. The only way to get to it is using the ALT+Tab shortcut.

    I have tried pressing the F8 key to clear the "Extended Selection" option in both Word and Excel. I tried swapping out my keyboard and mouse, I tried shutting down my system and restarting. I tried reverting back to the prior Windows version.


    NOTHING works. Can anyone help with this issue? My next option is to reload Windows then reload my documents and applications.


    Thoughts????

    :)

  2. Lenovo 2 11 w/Windows 10 touchpad issue

    Hi,



    Welcome to Microsoft Community. Your interest in Windows 10 is much appreciated.



    This issue may occur due to corrupted or incompatible drivers, missing updates, incorrect device settings or hardware problems.

    Method 1:

    Let's first run hardware and troubleshooter and check.

    • Open Control Panel.
    • Type “Troubleshooting “in the search box and hit
      enter.
    • Click on Hardware and sound.
    • Click on Hardware and device and follow the on-screen instructions.
    Method 2:

    If the issue is not resolved, I would suggest you to un-install and re-install touchpad driver from the manufacturer website and check if it helps.

    Step 1: Un-install the drivers:

    Follow these steps:

    • Click on Start icon.
    • Select Device Manager.
    • Right click on the
      touchpad drivers and select “Uninstall”.
    • Restart the computer once it is uninstalled.
    Step 2:

    I would suggest you to install latest touchpad driver from the manufacturer website and check if it helps.

    Keep us posted if you face any issues on windows in future. We will be glad to help you.

    If your wireless router has a built in firewall maybe it's somehow set to block the ports that Windows updates use?

    I'd also suggest if it works with it being directly connected then you could try resetting your router to see if this fixes the issue.

    That's my 2 cents anyways. *Smile Issue since last Windows Update 2/11/2021 :)

    Windows update issues

    It works, but I still need to fix it so that way I dont have to plug computers directly to the modem to get windows update to work. It was also blocking me from installing directx.
