  1. Updated to Windows 10 Version 1809 and now can't see my documents


    My computer automatically updated Windows to version 1809.

    All of my apps are still installed, but my documents folder is empty, my desktop files are gone, and my app defaults (such as internet browser and taskbar) have changed.

    I have tried signing out and signing back in again. I have tried restarting.


    When I open C: Users > (My User Name), I can see my old desktop files and my old documents folder. Why can't I access them directly anymore?

    :)

    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

  4. Updated to Windows 10 Version 1809 and now can't see my documents

    Print Option stopped working in Adobe Acrobat Reader DC after upgrading to Windows 10 version 1809

    Few days back, I upgraded my desktop (Windows 10 version 1803) to Windows 10 version 1809 using the update released through WSUS.

    After the upgrade, I'm unable to print any PDF document in Abobe Acrobat Reader DC (version 2019.010.20064). What I mean is the document loads successfully and everything else is in place (within the options I use), except print. Whenever I click on Print, nothing happens. Also checked using Ctrl + P, but no difference.

    Things I've tried (with no luck):

    1. Installed latest updates for Windows 10 version 1809 (December, 2018)
    2. Installed latest updates available for Abobe Acrobat Reader DC; no new updates available.
    3. Uninstalled Abobe Acrobat Reader DC and then reinstalled the latest version from Adobe's website.

    Alternate (working) ways to print PDF document:

    1. Using Microsoft Edge browser to open and print PDF documents.

    Could anyone please suggest/guide how to resolve this problem? I've searched everywhere across Internet, but couldn't find anything which would solve this case!
