  2. Windows 10 haven't updated to version 1511 --- How to find product key

    I haven't run the ISO disk as of yet, I want the current product key in hand, on a post it note, prior to doing that, not interested in MS bullS**T about it not being needed. 2 hours online with tech support and they can't cope with the question of how
    can the current product key be accessed in windows 10.

    I've never owned a Apple product, but I can never see buying or having another MS product in my household after this.

    NOT THE ONLY ONE

  3. How to Install Windows 10 on Devices with Limited Space

    Even though I have an external device with more than 40 Gb capacity and the assistant recognizes it, it still keeps asking me to free 5 more Gb from the (unit CWhat did Windows 10 update today? :).

    I have 3'62 Gb free memory in (Unit CWhat did Windows 10 update today? :). It asks me to free 5'63 Gb more. That'll make a total of 9'25 GB. The assistant needs 9'80 GB free memory to update windows 10 without any external device. Does this mean that my external device will only be used
    for 0'55 GB? Please I don't understant anything. I just want my laptop to work. I'd stay with my actual version but it keeps showing me ads, interrupting my work and deleting random stuff because of uninterruptible random updates. It has already freed 3 GB
    and I dont even know where from.

    Thank you.

  5. This seems to be the November update. But why did I just get it NOW in April and not back in November?

    Do you have Windows 10 Pro and upgrades deferred checked? You can check this in Windows Update settings if you have Windows 10 Pro.
     
  7. I don't have defer checked at this time, but prior I dunno.

  8. What did Windows 10 update today?

    I have also had major updates over the past couple of days that have made undesired changes to the way my PC works: Cumulative update to Windows 10 1511 x64 (home edition) - KB3140741 and KB3147458 on 18th April, KB3147458 on 20th April and KB3147458 on 22nd April, of which the last appears to be the one that caused the way that the desktop operates.

    I don't know if these changes are designed or that something went wrong in the update process, but they are unwished for as they make working on the PC almost impossible. Changes include:

    All the pinned start menu icons now appear on booting the computer on the desktop

    Start menu icon is present, but simply switches between the open program and the start menu icons

    Desktop icons have disappeared (e.g. Computer, waste basket, control panel and any icons I placed on the desktop temporarily for convenience

    All programs now open fully maximised and the button to the right of the minimise button does nothing - so the program is either maximised or minimised - minimising a program brings back the start menu desktop

    Each program starts in a new desktop and while I can open and display multiple windows from the same program on the same desktop, I cannot open different programs on the same desktop.

    There may be other changes that I have yet to discover, but of all the above, the last in the list above makes working on the computer simply impossible as I cannot compare data from two programs side by side or drag and drop documents between different programs, requiring me now to repeatedly switch between desktops. I can find not information on these changes on Microsoft's web page and, if these changes are 'designed', then it why is there does Microsoft not provide any info that guides you through the changes?

    More importantly - how can I customize my PC to work the way I want it to work, i.e. pre-latest update? I can of course try uninstalling the most recent updates, but that is only a temporary reprieve as Microsoft has removed the ability to manage updates in the Home edition of Windows 10.

    Help required urgently please.

    None of the things you listed is normal, definitely something wrong.

    Use System Restore to go back to before those updates were installed. If that fixes the problem then try the updates again.
    It would be a good idea to make an image backup to an external hard drive using a program like Macrium Reflect before trying the updates again, that way you will have a sure way to get back to a working system.

  10. Thanks for the feedback - it appears that my issues where part of a long list of problems caused by Microsoft's April updates KB3147461 and KB3147458 (see: MS forum). I solved the problem by using the Win 10 settings option to revert to previous build and will wait until MS resolves the issues before upgrading to Build 1511 (May's Patch Tuesday?).
