  1. You deleted my Freecell? Really?!?!

    After changing to Windows 10 a few years ago I was disappointed to find that Freecell minesweeper etc was no longer included with Windows.

    So I found a free version of it somewhere and downloaded and installed it and all was well.

    Now every time Windows 10 wants to update it deletes freecell on me and I need to revert back to a previous restore point to even be able to FIND my files that I installed. This is, in a nutshell, where microsoft has lost my love and why I had refused to change to Windows 10 for so long. It messes with my s**t, without my permission. I understand that you have a paid version of freecell that you want to push. I DO NOT WANT IT. I want the free version that I HAD installed on MY computer. You can keep Microsoft Edge you can keep your app store and you can keep your GD hands off of my files and preferences.

    Why does microsoft always seem to do this? You make it hard for us to do things the way we want and try to force us to do things the way you designed them. And when we find a way in spite of you, you claw it back. The only reason I haven't long ago switched to a Mac at home I do use one at work is that it's still somewhat difficult to get all of the programs and games I want on a Mac. That is the only thing keeping a windows machine in my house any more.

    Please...for the love of all things. Stop hiding settings, stop forcing your tools and app stores on your customers, while we still are your customers.

    Thank you.

    Deleting contacts from Windows 10

    When you say Windows Mail Live are you referring to Mail app or Windows Live Mail?

    I suggest you to try the steps provided below and check if it helps.

    • Open Windows Live Mail.
    • Press Ctrl + 3 using your keyboard. Right-click on the contact to delete it if it is a single contact.
    • Highlight all contacts by pressing Ctrl + A.
    • Click Delete located on the Ribbon bar.
    • Click OK when you see the message These contacts will also be deleted from Hotmail, Messenger, and other Windows Live services.

    After following the steps above, all your contacts that you have manually added to your account will be deleted however, contacts coming from third-party sites such as Facebook will not be deleted unless you remove Facebook from your account.

    For Mail app:

    Open People app then delete the contact.

    Unable to delete a folder - Invalid folder name

    1. Run chkdsk x: /r to make sure that there's no HD corruption.
      x: is the drive containing the folder you want to delete.
    2. Try to delete the folder again. If still does not work, go to step 3.
    3. Download: Download - Linux Mint and create a bootable USB using: Rufus - Create bootable USB
    4. Boot up with Linux Mint and try to delete the folder again.
      NOTE: Unlike WinPE. Linux does not have any Windows permission imposed to it so it is easier to delete.
