  1. question on home screen images

    A question and not a problem, I have two laptops normally located in different locations in my home. Both have a different use as well as the different image as the home screen. Of those two images; one displays a picture composed of photos of the same subject while the other is a slideshow of different photos. On occasion both laptops, both running windows 10 will be next to each other and both powered on and operating for about 30 minutes.

    Now for the question, it does not happen every time the above situation occurs but sometimes following when the two laptops have been next to each other, the home screen image of one will change to the home screen image of the other.

    Bluetooth is enabled on both and may the method for communication between the two laptops but why does such a change happen without human action related to personalization?

  2. System Image Problem

    I'm getting a head start in case you get on early.

    Can you post camera pics to your thread from your phone?

    There will be steps later that require attention to detail and I'd feel better if I could see what's on your screen. I had to try the steps more than once when I tested the process and I'd like to avoid that on your machine.

    Here's what I'd like to do for the Macrium Rescue steps later on in the process
    I'll post the the step, you'll post an picture of the Macrium screen,
    I'll echo same screen back if I see something that needs changing or I'll just say Go Ahead

    When I confirm that the Macrium screen, you'll make any changes I've highlighted and THEN execute the step

    Here's where you begin today's session, we'll get as far as we get and then pick up when you get back home.

    Step 1: Safeguard the System Image by moving it to a new folder

    1. Connect the Seagate exp drive

    2. File Explorer: Navigate to the Seagate drive

    3. Create a new Folder named 1_sysImage

    4. Move WindowsImageBackup to 1_sysImage

    Step 2: List the VHDs in the System Image

    1. File Explorer: Navigate to 1_sysImage\WindowsImageBackup\machineName\Backup date-time

    2. Press the Type column to sort by Type

    3. Post a screen shot
