  1. Win10 on 8.1 from iso - what workked what did not, for me


    I paid for win 8 and have the product key and the receipt; same with the latter upgrade to add media center.

    tried the ms "create media tool" http://windows.microsoft.com/en-ca/w...d=ms_wol_win10

    of course I selected download; mistake

    external drive - running mounted install from target - asked for win 10 key - neither legit win 8 key nor nany of the 50 other I have < which are not the ones running> worked
    ]
    moved it all to target partition on targewt drive - same

    to usb - same

    made bootable usb - not same; I can skip key; now it fails as can not find drivers due to 'running from install media'

    so

    had to think as a normal person - very hard work lol

    ran the tool not saved it locally

    worked fine

    :)

  2. what!?!? Win User

    Apps not closing, still running in background

    Thanks for the response. I am not looking for a "close all" function. Sometimes I intentionally want to leave an app running. In windows phone 8.1, I could exit and close th app by merely selecting the arrow/back button, I am looking for that same functionality.
    When I'm in an app, I want to be able to exit directly from there and not have it continuing in the background.

  3. what!?!? Win User
    Apps not closing, still running in background

    I just got my Lumia 950 phone. On my prior Windows phone, when I pressed the arrow/back button on the bottom left screen, I would exit the app. On Windows 10 phone, I've been doing that and I just realized I'm not exiting the apps. I had intentionally not
    exited an app (because it had my boarding pass). Instead of back button, I pressed the middle window button. Later when I went back to call up my airline app, I pressed the arrow/back button and held it. Similar to my old windows phone, it showed me all the
    apps that were open. SURPRISE! unlike my previous phone, no app had been closing. Right now, I can't seem to find a "one click" way to exit an app. The only way is after I've done a few things, I hold the back button and click the "X" on each of the open items.

    Can someone tell me how to exit an app with one click or swipe so that it is not still running, i.e. when I press the back button I will not see it? I'm sure this is something simple. I search the instructions that came with the phone and looked in the
    forum but haven't found the answer.

    thanks in advance the assist.
