  1. Strange Behavior With Windows 10


    Good day, Everyone:


    I have an interesting issue that's been going on for 2 or 3 years with my computer running Windows 10. When I start my computer up from a complete shutdown it seems to boot up with no issues at all; no error messages, no warnings, everything seems fine. Once the computer completes the boot up process things get strange.


    When I click on the Start button, the box that opens up with the Start Menu and the Shortcuts appears, but it's clear and blank. I usually have to wait a few seconds or move the mouse before something appears. If I right-click on an app that's in the Task Bar, the same sort of thing happens; the box appears but it's clear and takes 10 to 20 seconds before the options appear. If I click anywhere on the Windows Desktop, the box initially appears clear and then after 10 to 20 seconds the menu options appear.


    This is pretty annoying to say the least, but if I put my computer into Sleep mode and wake it back up again this problem goes away, until the next time I boot up from a complete shutdown. Since I've been able to get around this issue but putting my computer in and out of Sleep mode, I haven't really felt the need to troubleshoot this. But now it's just bugging me because I don't know what's going on, and it's probably a simple fix.


    For the record, I'm currently running Windows 10 version 20H2. My computer has the latest BIOS installed, and all the drivers are the latest and greatest, and I generally keep all the apps I use up to date as well. As mentioned before, this has been going on for a while now, and if anyone can point me in the right direction, or suggest a good first step towards getting this resolved I would greatly appreciate it.


    Thanks in advance to everyone who takes the time to read this.

    :)

    Registry strange behavior in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\...

    I tried to clear all contents of
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts
    then set security permission to logger user name () to be clear from:

    • create key
    • set value
    and let it inherently apply to all keys under it

    But it responds with icons flickering / blinking very often
    so I undo the security setting.. but while keeping on registry browsing under this key I came across:

    1. The jpg filetype key and userchoice key were created
    2. On userchoice key the logging user () ACL was created, and
    3. It's set to DENY on SET VALUE !

    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

    Strange behavior of the Start menu

    You can add shortcuts in the start menu, alphabetical list, by adding them in the old start menu location. What is strange is that if you add several shortcuts to the same program with different parameters, only one appears on the list, why ? No idea. Anyway
    it appears with the right icon, the one defined by the shortcut. If this entry list is pinned to the start screen, it appears with the icon of the exe file, not the one of the shortcut. Second strange behavior. I regret all this. The start menu of W10 lost
    something very important in the W7 and previous versions. The ability to create a hierarchical menu : one for internet, one for multimedia, one for office programs etc… The actual start menu is a real mess compared to what could be done in W7. This can be
    partly solved by the start screen : it’s possible to create folders, one for internet, one for multimedia ad so on, and the folders can contain pinned tiles to the right programs. Anyway, its’ completely impossible to create several shortcuts to the same program.
    For example one for starting the browser to one a website, one for starting it to another website and so on. Personally, I solve this by using an alternate shell able to manage several shortcuts to the same program… and to choose the icon. Anyway, this behavior
    of the start menu remains very strange, and makes the start menu of W10 less usable than the ones of the previous versions of windows (not W8 of course which was a complete failure).
