  1. Windows 10 update assistant


    I got the page with Windows out of date. I clicked update now and run. The screen that showed said I could continue working and to minimize. I did. Now I do not see anything happening. I clicked update again and it says that the Windows 10 update assistant is already running. It’s been 2 hours. How do I know when it is finished?

    :)

    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
