  1. Microsoft Publication Guidelines


    I am struggling to get a straight answer for these questions.

    I am sure I have seen plenty of published books that have bits of screenshots highlighting only the Start icon or bits of the GUI from the main Windows interface etc. which appear to have been cropped.

    Has anyone been through this or recently published a book or articles on Microsoft operating systems?

    This is from the Microsoft provided link under 'Screenshots': https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/lega...ty/permissions

    These are the guidelines from Microsoft for use of screenshots in a book:

    You may not use screenshots of Microsoft product boot-up screens, opening screens, "splash screens," or screens from beta release products or other products that have not been commercially released. You may use other screenshots in advertising, in documentation (including educational brochures), in tutorial books, in videos, or on websites, provided that, in addition to the requirements above, you:

    Do not alter the screenshot except to resize it.
    Do not use portions of screenshots. THIS IS MY PRINCIPAL QUERY...
    Do not include screenshots in your product user interface.
    Do not use screenshots that contain third-party content. BUT WHAT IF WE ARE SHOWING AN INTERNET SECURITY SUITE LIKE KASPERSKY ETC.?...
    Do not use screenshots that contain an image of an identifiable individual.

    :)

  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.

  3. Duplicate Public Folders

    Hope this helps someone identify the problem.

    • Q: What happens when you delete the duplicate folders?
    • A: Nothing. They're successfully deleted.

    • Q: Does it happen to all of your folders or only those with pictures?
      • A: Only the default Public Folders (Documents, Pictures, Music, Videos).
      • A: All of the Public Folders have customized folder icons.
      • A: The above image shows yellow, empty folder icons (duplicates).

    • Q: Any steps you've tried to troubleshoot this issue?
      • Actually, this has been a problem since Windows 7.
      • What I noticed then is that certain Windows programs created the duplicates:
        • Windows Media Player (stopped using)
        • Internet Explorer (stopped using)
        • Plus others, which I can't recall.
      • Only certain programs for Windows 10, as well:
        • Microsoft Edge (don't use it often)
        • Groove Music (never intentionally use it)
        • Plus others, which I haven't tracked.
          • I only notice it when I go to Public Folders.
          • By then, I've long since forgotten what was accessed.
      • I've googled for answers but most of those only address
        moving the Public Folders to another Drive.

    When Microsoft releases Windows 10 updates? Is there some public list available?

    I would like to know when Microsoft releases Windows 10 updates - is there some public list available?

    The reason is that I would like to compare these days to days when there is slow Internet connection in our company to see if it correlates... And if it does, take some steps to make it better. Thank you.
