  1. Microsoft is adding a great ‘What’s New’ section to Windows 10 Settings Microsoft released a new Windows 10 Insider Preview Built for Windows 10 2004 today, and the changelog included many new features, but it appears the list was not comprehensive. Windows 10 hacker Albacore has uncovered a neat new feature in the OS – a new “What’s New” page in settings which will advertise new features in the OS. When items get clicked on they produce a pop-up with more detail which allows users to send feedback. The feature seems a great idea for those who have a casual interest in learning more about Windows, which has a mass of features regular users would not normally even touch. The feature is not currently activated, but Microsoft should unveil it to all in short order. Source: Microsoft is adding a great ‘What’s New’ section to Windows 10 Settings (MSPoweruser)

    Windows 7 Settings Error

    Hello guys, I had this sudden settings error yesterday on my Windows 7 Pro x64. All was fine until I realized the below errors. 1- The default view chosen for every folder was reset to default. Now I am not able to chose a view settings for a certain folder without it being converted back to the default once I close that folder. 2- The System icons near the clock on taskbar keeps hiding themselves. Now the taskbar chooses what needs to be hidden and what needs to be shown. Even thought I drag the wanted icons to be shown, once I restart the laptop, the icons revert to being hidden. Don't know what triggered such error. Is there any recommended fix ?
  3. Settings header in Windows 10 is back Microsoft quietly removed the famous header in Windows 10 Settings in one of the previous Fast ring Insider Builds. But now, the header seems to be back again in the Settings app in Windows 10 Version 1909 via a server update, according to HTNovo. The purpose of the header in the Settings app is to provide essential information and quick access to certain features. However, many users complained that the header in Windows 10 Settings app is a waster of space and it provides useless information. On the contrary, Microsoft said, “header at the top allows you to take quick action for things like signing in and managing your Microsoft account, making the Windows and Microsoft experience better. It also gives you an easy to glance at system status, such as when updates are available.” Many users also suggest that Microsoft should give users the ability to customize the header in the Settings app. Unfortunately, Microsoft hasn’t made such announcements as yet, but that doesn’t it won’t in the future feature. How many of you think that the header in the Settings app of Windows 10 is a useful feature? Do let us know in the comments below. Source: Settings header in Windows 10 is back (MSPoweruser)
  4. Intel has released a new integrated graphics (GPU) driver bumping the version up to 15.65.3.4944. The driver is compatible with Apollo Lake, 6th, 7th, and 8th generation processors and comes with game optimizations. The driver introduces a new feature with the ability to automatically configure game settings for Intel Graphics on 6th Gen Core Processors or higher (including systems with 8th Gen Core Processors with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics). To find the new setting, look for the ‘Gaming icon’ in the Graphics Control Panel. The feature is still in beta, so game availability and functionality is limited. Intel is also looking for feedback on the new feature, which you can provide here. The driver and new automatic configuration adds support for the following games: Age of Empires: Definitive Edition Launch Driver Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age HD Launch Driver Battlefield 1 Battlefield 4 American Truck Simulator Call of Duty WWII Destiny 2 DOTA 2 Grand Theft Auto V League of Legends Overwatch World of Tanks In addition, Intel notes the following changes and enhancements with this driver: Enhanced performance of graphics workloads for 6th Gen Core processors or higher with intelligent power management under maximum load. Improved performance in video encoding for all codecs. Power saving optimizations during video playback and UHD gaming is now available on all 7th Gen Core processors and higher. You can check out the full release notes and download the driver using the links below.

  5. I was doing laundry and when I came back to my computer I was surprised to find that I had been logged out of the forums. Can someone please tell me what the inactivity time is for auto-logout here at nsane.forums? Can someone tell me how to avoid getting auto-logged out?
  6. Do you own more than one Windows 10 device? If so, you can keep your settings the same on each device or make them distinct. Either way, Windows 10 offers a way to keep your devices in sync if you wish. You can sync your desktop theme, your web browser settings, certain passwords, your language preferences, and more. Syncing not only ensures that your settings are the same on each PC or tablet but also backs them up so you don't lose them if one device goes bad. Let's look at the different settings you can sync and how to sync them. First, you'll need to use the same Microsoft account to log into each Windows 10 device that you wish to sync. If you don't already have a Microsoft account, you can create one at the bottom of this Microsoft account page. Then make sure you log into Windows 10 using your new account. Click on the Start button > Settings > Accounts > Sync your settings. By default, the option to Sync settings is turned on, but you can turn it off completely or turn it off selectively for each setting. Let's keep all the settings turned on at this point and go through each one so you can determine which ones you want to sync and which ones you don't. The first setting is Theme. Your theme consists of a desktop background image, display color, sound, and screen saver. The idea here is that instead of selecting individual backgrounds, colors, sounds, and a screen saver, you pick a single theme that incorporates all those element in one shot. To view and apply a theme, click on the Start button > Settings > Personalization > Themes > Theme Settings. You can apply an existing theme from the ones built into Windows 10 or download other themes from Microsoft's Desktop Themes website. The second option is Internet Explorer settings, which syncs your favorites, history list, and other content from the IE browser. The Passwords setting syncs credentials from certain websites and Windows apps. The fourth setting, for Language Preferences, applies to the spelling dictionary and other settings for the language or languages you use in Windows. The fifth setting, for Ease of Access, applies to all the options in the Ease of Access area, which you can see via the Start button > Settings > Ease of Access. From there, you can enable a variety of features designed for people with certain disabilities or limitations. The Narrator can read aloud to you text on the screen, while the Magnifier can zoom into text on the screen to make it easier to read. The sixth setting, for Other Windows Settings, sounds vague, but it covers options like list of installed apps, connected printers, and the size and color of your mouse cursor. Source
  7. Starting today, anyone visiting Yahoo will be tracked by default, regardless of whether they've enabled the Do Not Track setting on their browser. It's a bold stance by the company, which described the shift as a personalized experience by default, and a serious blow for the Do Not Track standard, which has suffered major setbacks in recent years. Users can still manage their privacy settings through the Yahoo Privacy settings, but they'll have to do so individually, and Yahoo sites won't be responding to any automated anti-ad-tracking signals like DNT. "We fundamentally believe the best web is a personalized one," the privacy team said in a blog post. Do Not Track was envisioned as a single setting that would allow users to opt-out of ad-tracking across the web, but the standard has struggled to get advertisers and browserson-board. Both groups make hundreds of millions of dollars from targeting ads based on user's browsing habits, and proved reluctant to build an opt-out method that might cut into their profits. After legislation that would mandate the setting stalled in congress last year, DNT's future has been unclear. Neither Google nor Facebook currently honors the setting, although many groups continue to support it. Source

    Privatefirewall woes.

    I've been using Privatefirewall for a little while now and it's sort of OK...mostly=> but also quite a hassle in some ways. For example, if I want to read any PDF file with Foxit Reader, I have 2 choices AFAIK... Click about 20 firewall queries EVERY time, or click 'details' and then 'train' in that window - EVERY TIME. It is very annoying - it seems to think EVERY single PDF file is a separate security problem to address. I set Foxit as fully allowed too, and that made no difference. There doesn't seem to be any setting for allowing files by type either. Worse still, after a restart it forgets alot of settings. So after Process Hacker had to be killed off and I had to reboot - it asked me all over again if Firefox, Firemin, Thunderbird, my mouse software and a few more things were allowed. It seems to be lightweight and decent in most ways, but if it's going to act quite this stupidly all the time I need to find another light but better firewall to replace it. (Even the ancient Kerio Personal Firewall was WAY easier to get along with than this.) Any suggestions on how to make it behave better somehow ?!? Thanks.
