    Very slow PC - Windows 10


    I'm having problems opening files from the icons on my desktop. It's taking about three minutes instead of the usual 5 -10 seconds.


    Outlook.com is working fine - touch wood - and so is opening from tabs.


    The timing is particularly frustrating as I was hoping to investigate the best way to move lots of stuff across to my new PC later today.


    Has anyone advice on how I can check what's causing this please?


    PS I'm not sure where I should post this - it's clearly a problem with the laptop that I'm using as I post this. If it should be eg CPC would a Moderator please move it. Thanks

    :)

    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

    Very slow PC - Windows 10

    Installing Windows 10 on New PC?

    I'm going to be building a new PC on Christmas and want to install Windows 10 on it. I have Windows 10 on my current PC, which I installed upgrading from 8.1 with the files on a USB. How do I go about installing a clean copy of Windows 10 on this new PC? I think I recall something about installing it once makes Microsoft recognize your hardware, but since this will be a PC I'm not sure what steps I need to take. Do I need to go 8.1 -> 10 or is there a method of going directly to 10?
