Long time since I had to fix an MP3 file and then I went to burn a CD for the car…

A little bit of corruption meant the track played fine on the PC but wouldn’t burn as the track length was corrupted in the file.  Took longer to find this programme than it did to fix the MP3 that had the issue…

Would you like to know more?

Win10Build 10074 made my Synology NAS completely invisible to my main PC, still available to everything else on the network.  It’s taken hours of research to find the cause & Solution…

  1. Control Panel >Network and Sharing Centre > Change Adapter Settings
  2. Right click Network Adapter > Properties
  3. Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) > Properties >Advanced >WINS
  4. Select “Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP” then click OK.

ClassicShellOh dear, another build another terrible Start Menu, this time if you remove the tiles an enormous blank space remains, the list of programs installed is just one gigantic list , oh and if you press WINKEY and start typing to search nothing happens…

Cue Classic Shell Beta to the rescue as I pretty much launch everything by WINKEY and then type the first few characters.

File ExplorerThe usability of Windows 10 File Explorer (previously Windows Explorer) is a mess, making it virtually unusable due to the illogical layout and limitations in in re-ordering.  This is hopefully something they are fixing, but for now you can  do something about it using Regedit…

Win10Not that this isn’t just as simple as using your mouse…

Snapping in Windows 10 is very different than it was in Windows 8 and Windows 7. If you never made the jump to Windows 8, or if you decided to revert back to Windows 7 after you realized you didn’t like Windows 8 one bit, snapping windows in Windows 10 will seem even more different.

I must sit down and re-watch these, well at least at some point before Xmas 2015 and the release of Episode 7.  Totally agree with number 1, although I think there’s an omission or two in the list.

windows8logoI would not be surprised if this were true given how terribly Windows 8 has been received, I like it’s speed, but that’s about it.  The interface(s) are jarring, the lucky charms are ridiculous on a standard PC or laptop and the flat, aero free look is both boring and almost the same a Win 3.11.  Oh, don’t get me started on the ludicrous tiled Start Page.

If the rumours are to be believed, all of these usability issues will be addressed, I guess we’ll know in a few weeks time.  Oh, yes I am aware you can remove/fix/replace the majority of the items listed above, but hacking an OS to make it usable seems a bit OTT to me.

Microsoft is aiming to deliver a “technology preview” of its Windows “Threshold” operating system by late September or early October, according to multiple sources of mine who asked not to be named.

Would you like to know more.
