    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

  3. Windows 10 keeps resetting my Default Programs for .wav and internet.

    Hi Carey,



    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for posting your query.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.



    To understand the issue better, I would like to know how did you set the .wav files default to Windows Media Player?
    Please elaborate the steps.



    For now let’s try simple troubleshooting steps and check if this helps in resolving the issue. Follow the below steps.


    • On the Windows search bar type default program and select
      Default Program.

    • Click on Default app and click on
      Choose default app by file type.


    • Locate for the .wav, click next to it and select
      Windows media player.


    If the issue still persist, if might be possible that the user account is corrupt. I suggest you to create a new user account and check if the issue still persist. Visit the below link to create new user account.
