  1. Remotely locked my windows 10 laptop, now I cant unlock it


    I remotely locked my laptop from my microsoft account. I found my laptop again and then ablut 1 hour later it locked (because I sent the request for it to be locked whenever possible). Once it locked I tried to log in with my PIN which showed the following message: "An administrator had restricted sign in. To sign in, make sure your device is connected to the internet, and have your administrator sign in first". The wifi stopped working too. It showed the wifi symbol with the ⚠️ on the corner. I tried selecting a plethora of different connections and then I tried via ethernet (Which I need to occasionally restart my laptop so that it works temporarily) which also yields the same error. Logging in with my microsoft account password (Which I changed twice already) gives me a wrong password message and asks me to reset my password from the microsoft page. The forgot password button doesn't work either.

    (Also my screen is stuck sideways)

    Unlocked Realtek HD Audio Drivers Windows 7 & 8 (With Dolby Digital Live and DTS Interactive)

    DTS supported natively by Windows 8/8.1 and it should work on windows 10 too just DDL require to unlock your driver .

    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
