    Windows 10 Reset - still can get past log on...


    Hi

    I tried to use my laptop the other day and windows 10 wouldn’t load. I managed to get in via safe mode and all my stuff is still there. Ive done a reset, which completed. Once i then enter my password it goes to a black screen - i can still move the cursor.


    I’ve tried removing and reinstalling the display driver.


    I have no option to system restore as i haven’t set a restore point.


    Also when in safe mode i can’t access settings or updates.


    I’m not sure what to do next, should i factory reset? Also is it possible to back up my files in safe mode to an external drive?


    Im using a Toshiba Satellite thats about 6 years old (it came with windows 8, but I upgraded to Win 10 when it was launched)


    I don’t use the laptop much so i’m at a loss why this has happened.


    Any help/ advice is appreciated.

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”

    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
