#StackBounty: #windows-10 #start-menu Windows 10: Can't click on apps after searching in start menu

Bounty: 50

After a fresh install of Windows 10 and a couple of days:

If I open the start menu and start clicking things it all works.
If I’m searching for, well, anything, I’m getting the result I want (think of some app) but I can’t click on it and open it. Right click doesn’t nothing as well. The app line has a gray background.

Has anybody encountered this behavior?

#StackBounty: #windows-10 #microsoft-edge Disable set aside tabs in Edge

Bounty: 50

The Creator’s update added a new feature to Edge called “setting aside tabs”. While it sounds nice, I really don’t need it and it is actually creating problems for me. While clicking on the first tab in the list, I often accidentally click on the set aside button and all tabs have to be reloaded again.

Is there some switch to disable this new feature?

#StackBounty: #windows-10 #windows-explorer #thumbnails Thumbnail preview for custom file extension with known format

Bounty: 50

I have a file named test.png. Windows 10 shows a thumbnail preview in file explorer just fine.

I’d like to rename it to test.abc and have the thumbnail preview still work.

Following forcing thumbnail preview for custom file format (which was for Win 7) hasn’t worked. I get a default thumbnail.

Copying the registry entry for .png and editing in the different extension hasn’t worked. Again, default thumbnail.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT.abc]
@="pngfile"
"Content Type"="image/png"
"PerceivedType"="image"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT.abcOpenWithProgids]
"AppX43hnxtbyyps62jhe9sqpdzxn1790zetc"=hex(0):
"AppXcdh38jxzbcberv50vxg2tg4k84kfnewn"=hex(0):
"LibreOffice.Png"=" "
"pngfile"=""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT.abcPersistentHandler]
@="{098f2470-bae0-11cd-b579-08002b30bfeb}"

Is something different in windows 10? Some additional step I’m missing? Something I don’t understand?

#StackBounty: #windows-10 #boot #keyboard #bios #windows-tabletpc Getting out of the EFI Shell on Acer Windows 10 tablet with external …

Bounty: 50

I have a problem with starting an Acer One 10 tablet that is running Windows 10. After powering on the tablet, Acer logo shows up and I am redirected to EFI Shell.

Startup Screen

I am unable to type anything though, since the keyboard seems either not to respond or not to work at all. I plan to connect another external keyboard via MicroUSB and see if that works but I currently ave no access to USB OTG to make this happen.

I fail to get any reaction from touchscreen either. I have been able to enter BIOS by pressing volume buttons when powering on:

BIOS Menu

But since the keyboard is not responding, I have no way of selecting anything there and I am not sure whether it would help anyway.

My current course of action is to get USB OTG and try another external keyboard and if that does not work, boot the tablet from USB and reinstall Windows. Is there anything else I can do in this situation? If not, since I have no experience with Windows Tablets (this one belongs to my father) – is there a specific Windows image I should boot and how do I find out which?

Thanks.

#StackBounty: #windows-10 #backup #disk-image Looking for something similar to Time Machine for windows 10

Bounty: 50

I have been an apple user for several years. Recently I have purchuased a computer that runs Windows 10 and I can’t find a program similar to what Time Machine does in mac. The features I look for are:

  • Make a complete disk image back-up while I can work on the computer.
  • Be able to use the program on different hard drives.
  • I could use a different computer to obtain different versions of files in the hard drive.
  • In case of emergency: ❶ Be able to buy a new computer; ❷ Install a program or run commands to make a exact copy of my computer in the new one. ❸ Be able to work on this computer without noticing is different.
  • Be able to do the above process in a few clicks.

Is it possible to have the above?

If needed I would pay for the service.

If know Windows 10 includes File History and a Backup program but as far as my experience is not the same..
