Where to find My Computer on Windows 10?

User Avatar
To find My Computer on Windows 10 you must search for it. To do this hit your Windows key on your keyboard and begin typing "My Computer". Once you finish typing it you will see "My Computer" in the search results. Sometimes people see "This PC". They are both the same thing and go to the same place.

How do you stop Windows 10 from resizing your open windows in awkward ways?

User Avatar
That is obnoxious. Here is how to turn it off: 1. Go to "system" (the picture of a little cog) 2. Click the "Multitasking" option 3. Under "arrange windows automatically..." on the right side of the screen, choose "off" and make sure the slider moves over. That should do it.

How do you install Windows 10?

User Avatar
You don't install Windows 10, because Microsoft charges now for "extra" features, such as using the DVD player, and for games like solitaire, both which worked fine in previous versions, but now cost users regularly, like rent. Recommendation: Use Linux. Its free and easy as using XP. Ubuntu and Lubuntu are most popular version. Windows users will find Lubuntu easiest to use. Linux Mint is another popular distribution.

Basically the same way you install other programs. Normally you would run an executable in the installation folder; this executable is often called "Install.exe" or "Setup.exe".

Is there a program that tracks what programs have been running and for how long?

User Avatar
in win 10 - hit CTRL _ALT_ DELETE at the same time - from the next window select TASK MANAGER - then select app history to start with. Here you'll find some data on any apps running and their time and resource. Hitting "start up" will give you a list of applications starting on boot up - be aware of disabling anything until you are sure what it is its doing - some applications are running in the background i.e. you AV As an extra point down load something like malwarebytes or spybot. Use either in the free mode and allow it to update then run a scan on your system.

How do you Create two desktops on a laptop?

User Avatar
In Windows 10, click Task View, which is next to the search field on the taskbar. Then click +New Desktop on the bottom right side. You should now see two icons. One for Desktop 1 and one for Desktop 2. Click on Desktop 2. In Desktop 2 open your program that must remain open. The software should now open normally. Now click on the Task View icon again and select Desktop 1. You will now see a desktop where you can open your other programs. When you need to get back to your original program, click the Task View icon again and select Desktop 2. You will see the program that has to stay open. Disclaimer, the program you are using will need to support multiple desktops.

Then place 1 before the name of teh most used then repeat the process placing 2 before the name and the repeat on the next by adding 3 before the name etc tec. then right mouse click the screen and select sort by name - if you have numbered everything sequentially then it should sort top down

How do you install Windows 10 that's supposedly free?

User Avatar
You can no longer install Windows 10, as the period providing a free upgrade for Windows 8 users has already ended . The last day to take advantage of this upgrade was July 29 2016. During the free upgrade period, one option was to go directly to official Microsoft Windows site and upgrade from there. Another was a reminder that would occasionally appear that asked you whether you wanted to install. All you needed to do was click yes to confirm. There is probably another way to manually access the prior option. Now that the trial period is over you probably don't have these option except to purchase it from their site and install it the old fashioned way.
