  1. Updates to MS apps


    Various updates to native apps available today including mail & calendar, news, money, weather. All run manually from store. All went in first time and verified as still working across all user accounts. Recommend if you run multiple user accounts that you take a restore point prior to running these in case you need to rollback should any of these apps corrupt.

    Xbox One controller bios failed to update, now not recognized by Xbox accessory app

    I purchased an xbox one controller after to use with my Windows 10 anniversary addition computer. After a few months games started stuttering (a MS update appeared to be the issue.) I was told to update the controller using the MS official Xbox Accessory
    app. During the update process the app crashed and my controller failed to update. Now when I try and update the controller the Xbox acessory app doesnt recognize the controller. (Which means I can't update the contoller now.)

    So to be clear, a standard MS Xbox One controller needs to have the firmware updated to work with MS windows 10. But if the process fails to update the controller using xbox acessory app, it corrupts the controller bios and the MS Xbox Acessory app cant
    recognize the controller to update it.

    And according to MS support there is no way to revert the controller back to the original bios.

    Someone please help me get my Microsoft hardware to work with Microsoft software.

  3. Software update issues

    I can't comment on the availability of MS Apps or the Social update for the USA but I can tell you that the E6-00 won't be getting the FP1 update.



    It's probably going to be a case of playing the waiting game for the MS Apps and Social updates.

    All you need to do is click on the gear icon on your weather app, then click on About, to find the version #

  11. How do you get the weather app to show in your taskbar? That sounds useful. I always preferred the windows 7 gadgets where I had useful things like weather and cpu meter on my desktop for easy reference. I don't like Windows 10 squashing that. I do use 8gadget pack to restore some functions as I find having to click the start menu for a weather glance annoying

  13. Updates to MS apps

    So it's like 'pin to taskbar'? And by doing that it gives proper visual indicator of the weather ?

  15. Thanks, I am being dense probably but I don't get it. If I right click the weather tile I don't get a choice to select 'other'

    Am probably approaching this completely wrong about the steps to getting the MS weather app to show itself in taskbar/or notification area in bottom right. Where do I need to right click?

    Cheers,
    Wayne
