    windows 10 update messed with my settings


    Hi! After I installed the Windows 10 update onto my ASUS computer, it reset all my programs and settings and wiped some preferences and data from my device.


    I saw someone else post about this, the help received said it was 'unlikely' to have been caused by the update, however, the same thing just happened to me, therefore that 'unlikely' theory is incorrect.


    How do I fix this, aside from resetting everything as it is extremely infuriating and inconvenient, as well as how do I prevent this from happening again?


    This is my laptop for college. I can't lose files and data every time I update Windows 10, or gamble on which updates will install correctly and which will eat things. If I lose an assignment file, or files from my documents or anything go missing again, and I needed to hand that in- I can't begin to explain how angry I'd be. Might even turn off updates altogether.


    Thanks.

    :)

    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

    Microsoft to make Windows 10 updates mandatory

    Well, at the moment at least, you can choose to defer upgrades. Under Settings > Windows Updates > Advanced options you need to check the box labeled "Defer upgrades". What does that do? Good question. The answer I've found might illuminate it to a degree.

    I hear this only applies to Pro and Enterprise editions. But I can't verify that.
