    So I was trying to run a game for the first time and I got it to launch. However when I tried to change the graphics settings to “fullscreen,” the game froze and when I tried moving my mouse, I kept hearing a beeping sound until I stopped moving it.I restarted Windows to see if it fixed the issue but it got stuck on “Restarting.” I had to force shut it down. When it booted up, everything worked as normal, except when I tried to open windows explorer, it froze. Just says “not responding.”Certain apps open fine unless it requires accessing Windows explorer. I can’t even access task manager to ki

    Microsoft Internet Explorer renamed to Windows Internet Explorer ?

    Since version 7 of the world`s most popular web browser - Microsoft Internet Explorer was silently renamed to Windows Internet Explorer.Such a step from Microsoft is not a surprise since Internet Explorer is part of the Windows operation system for a long time.Obviously Microsoft corp. wants to state that Internet Explorer is already considered as a part of Windows and not as an external browser (remember the IE and WMP law issues last year!?).

    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
