    Having used Windows 7 for several years I just got a new laptop with Windows 10. It's awful. How can I get rid of those nasty pulsating dots (be they circular or linear) while I'm waiting for something to happen? I have to look away lest they induce an epileptic fit!

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Anniversary Update -mouse pointer has a flashing "egg timer"

    Hi all, I recently downloaded the latest Windows update & all appears well,except for one niggling problem. Whenever I go onto a Windows 10 screen, my mouse pointer has a flashing "egg timer" alongside it,which is rather annoying. I run Windows 10, 64 bit
    on a pc & this ONLY occurs when I click on the start screen & go into 10. There's no problem on Chrome or Opera or my normal desktop.

    Any ideas please on how to fix this. Thanks, John

  3. A timer

    I am amazed I cannot find a normal timer in my mobile phone (like for cooking eggs for instance)

    Is there a program for this?

    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
