  1. Windows 10 keeps deleting files and reverting Chrome back to default


    My mom has been having this problem with Windows 10 for the past few years, first with her desktop just completely crashing (Bluescreening and the whole shibang). However now, with her laptop, its been updating fine for the most part. But its been acting oddly. It deletes files, except an odd few including Audacity, and reverts everything except her lock screen to the default settings. I tried looking for the pictures I'd put on her laptop for her and they've all disappeared. Like i'd never messed with it in the first place. Its taken off all of her personal files and things she'd needed for school that she can't ever get back.

    I looked up why it could be deleting files, however it says that Storage sense is the problem. The only thing with that is, well, it was never turned on in the first place. I tried looking up this problem and I've turned up with no other solutions.

    We've, both myself and her, have been having problems with Google Sync. It won't work the way that its supposed to and she's getting really frustrated with that too. (My mom's suggestion is to just have a simple code that will allow the computer program Windows 10 to update but keep all the files and the passwords without deleting them, please.) I work off of Windows 7 while she works off of windows 10.

    A few weeks, or months (I'm horrible at keeping track of days, apologies), ago she wasn't able to log on with her original account onto her computer. It'd said something had corrupted and decided to nope. It logged her on to a temporary file, but as of recently it seems that her original profile works. As of updating it at least. - I read this back to her and she's said that she had to redo everything. The sign up process etc. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the above paragraph's problem, or if its just- something else?

    We're both at a loss for what to do and she's getting really frustrated with this whole thing. Though honestly I dont blame her. Please help.

    :)

    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

    File Associations Keep Reverting to Windows 10 Defaults

    I've posted to another thread, but that thread isn't getting any traction or responses.

    Latest WIndows 10 Update Changes File Associations

    The most maddening thing is happening on my Windows 10 PC. I've reset the file associations via every way possible and still the file associations for Edge keep coming back, sometimes even minutes after
    I've changed it. In particular with these file types and associations:

    • graphic files like png, jpg, gif - I have resurrected Window Photo Viewer and associated these file types with it, but Windows 10 keeps changing them back to the Photos app
    • mp3 files - I changed them to Windows Media Player, but Windows 10 keeps changing them back to Groove Music
    • htm and html files - I changed to open with Chrome, but Windows 10 keeps changing them back to open with Edge
    • pdf files - I changed to open with Acrobat Pro, but Windows 10 keeps changing them back to open with Edge

    Help please!
