    Kids managed to change the way Windows 10 is diplayed


    My kids playing with the laptop managed to accidentally totally mess up the way desktop is set up.
    For starters they switched option for sight impared users which introduced high contrast.
    I switchged it of and back to normal colors.

    But now my classick Windows look where I had icons of apps and documents has been changed to tiles.
    There are plenty of tutorials how to get rid of tiles. Following them I unpinned all the tiles but still I see no option to return to the old look. Here are few screens showing the current look and feel. Any suggestions?

    :)

    Windows Phone 8 - Kids Corner Backdoor to Internet

    • Is there a way to dissable access to Internet Explorer entirely from within Kids Corner?
    This way if a game has a link to a webpage or youtube video the kid pressing that button can't get to it.



    I will post the suggestion at the feature suggestions page. But to me this sounds more like a flaw in the Kids Corner coding and should be patched.

    • Is there another forum I should post to in order to raise additional awareness?

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    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
