I reserved Windows 10 on my gaming PC and it says "ready to go!" but unless I hit Go, it hasn't updated automatically to 10.

Since this is a new thread, I guess i'll ask here again:

Anyone find a fix for Windows 10 not putting monitors to sleep?

Someone said it was a bug in Teamviewer, so if you have that, uninstall and see if that helps.

My HP laptop has battery issues in Windows 10. If I shut the laptop off, the battery keeps draining. Every single god drat time I power it up it has 0% battery and needs to recharge. And yes, I'm shutting it down and not putting it in sleep or hibernation. It's nuts.

Then your shutdown isn't actually powering off your laptop. Are you shutting down then immediately closing the lid?

That's exactly what it sounds like. I've experimented by shutting it down then letting it sit there with the laptop open for hours. I shut it down at 100%, then a half day later I power it back up and it's at 20%.

This worked. If I hold the power button to turn off the laptop, then it is legitimately off and the battery doesn't get drained. if I power it down via Windows then the battery drains.

Yep. I mentioned it a ton of pages ago. You have to uninstall the appx entirely via PowerShell to make it go away for good, I think. Run these two commands in an elevated PowerShell and it should delete them for good.
code:
Get-AppxPackage|? name -like *MicrosoftOfficeHub*|remove-appxpackage
Get-AppxPackage|? name -like *SkypeApp*|remove-appxpackage

If you don't want to gently caress around in Powershell, or have other built in apps you want removed, download this free app:

The windows 10 thing was a big screen I had to click through to get past to show the real update list instead of just the windows 10 upgrader. Then when i clicked it "Windows 10 Pro Upgrade" was listed as an optional update and automatically checked.

I finally caught a break with it. I made a Windows 10 image for my company from a clean 1511 ISO right before they revoked it, and with Produkey I'm able to grab the Win8 key out of the BIOS and paste it straight into the Activation tab to get these all upgraded now. Still have another couple hundred laptops at work to go through but it beats the previous slog of doing an in-place Win8 upgrade to 10, then reimaging to the pre-configured 10 image then praying that it would magically decide to activate some time over the next few days.

Imagine an alternate universe where Microsoft said "free Windows 10 for everyone, here's the ISO, it's pre-activated!" Would that have been so horrible?

Also it's just with build 1511, so I'm not sure where you're coming from. It's not like it's been an issue since the original win10 release.

And of course you have to install build 1511 specific ADMX templates to even see the GPO.

So here's a fun thing.

Windows 10's disk cleanup is stupid and doesn't work for poo poo.

I kept getting low disk space alerts for my SSD (which is 256GB; not huge, but not tiny), calling out many many gigglebites of "Temporary Files" with no other description. Clicking the handy Clean Up Files button did gently caress-all, and using the Windows disk cleanup utility was similarly useful (read: not at all).

Saw a MS forum post about using CCleaner (which I hadn't installed in quite some time on this system), and that worked a treat. Dumped 185GB of poo poo, and now I'm where I want to be.

After you ran Disk Cleanup, did you click the Clean Up System Files button? Then it will remove old updates, old system install files, etc. It actually works great so it's you.

OneDrive seems to be able to log in just fine, as can everything non-Microsoft related. Also Chrome is detecting me as being in Germany for some reason, despite the VPN being set to the UK, but I suspect that's a different issue.

I've tried Googling for solutions, but I mostly found a bunch of Enterprise solutions that went over my head. Can anyone shed any light on this?

gently caress Netgear. About 3-4 months ago my old TP Link usb wireless stick started messing up so I got a USB stick by Netgear based off of a bunch of test results and reviews. I get this new usb stick and joyfully find out that it barely works with Windows 10. For a while I just ran a cable across the house to my computer, but that's not an option at my new place so I'm back to having to unplug and replug the usb for wifi every 10 minutes to 2 hours or so.


Are there any wifi usb adapters that actually work in Windows 10? Every thing I look up either doesn't work... or I'll see stuff saying it works, but then people saying it doesn't work for Windows 10.

Meanwhile Netgear has sad numerous times "Our windows 10 drivers are coming!" and the only drivers they have that are listed as Windows 10 are the same Windows 8 drivers from 2014.

I've used this at work with Windows 10 without issues:
