  1. Windows 10 Dictation


    I have a new problem. When I attempt to use Dictation and hit Control H, a "Find and Replace" dialog box comes up and I can't get past it to record. In the Sound Settings, the microphone works! I have been able to use this function in the past.

    Windows 10 Dictation

    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
