  1. Windows 10 unresponsive and needs restart?


    Every so often Windows 10 just gives up and I need to restart my PC to get a response. Usually everything freezes but I can pull up the taskbar and open apps. I try logging out and back in but that doesn't do anything so I always need to restart. This is happening every 2 days at the very minimum now and it's getting frustrating. On one monitor the screen will go completely black and the other monitor freezes so only the taskbar shows up. PC specs are below if it helps. The only thing I can think of is that I need to buy a better CPU cooler or change the airflow in the casing. Thanks in advance!

    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
