    Windows 10 Dell Laptop


    Hey there everyone, i'm a massive noob to this forum
    I've got a general enquiry
    Im running windows 10 on a 2-3 year old dell laptop, i haven't added a spec list but can do if need be

    however i have found that the past year my laptop has stopped charging it's battery,
    i've done all i could to try and fix this,
    i.e go to device manager.... uninstall relevant battery drivers, restart....
    it fixes it sometimes, however if i leave my laptop on sleep it fails to charge the laptop & just keeps it running whilst staying on the same percentage, would it be a case of finding a new charger? my battery is in a healthy state & definitely can hold a full charge, however since i've owned it, i've not been able to leave it off, without the charger in without it going dead.

    another problem i've found relating to this
    i produce music using fl studio 12, and i've found that since this problem has started to occur, if i take the charging cable out of the laptop my laptop runs like a dream, as soon as i plug it back in (this is when it doesn't charge) it really lags out my fl studio, but when it's not on charge.. as i say it runs perfectly...

    would this be a case of a new battery, new charger... or simply new laptop?

    cheers guys, sorry for such a long post

    :)

    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

    Windows 10 Dell Laptop

    I want to disable touchpad on Dell laptop


    Hello everyone,
    My laptop's touchpad works and I don't want it to, because I prefer a mouse. It's a Dell Inspiron 11 3000 series on windows 10 OS.

    What I have tried that hasn't worked:
    • start<settings<devices<mouse & touchpad<additional mouse options. This opens a window called Mouse Options which has 5 tabs up top, none of which involve the touchpad. The Hardware tab shows 2 devices: the mouse itself, and the USB. No touchpad there.
    • windows key+x<mobility center. No touchpad to be found.
    • various function keys. No options for touchpad on/off.
    • device manager<mice and other pointing devices. Again, only the mouse and usb show up. It appears the touchpad is working without a driver, which is a little spooky.
    Any other suggestions? I could try downloading a third party driver, but that seems like a step in the wrong direction.
    Thanks
