Windows 10 May 2019 Update

The windows 10 May 2019 update is on its way to your PC here are my five favorite ways it’s making your PC better it’s hard to believe but this is the eighth feature update to Windows 10 dating back to July 2015 those early feature updates tried pretty hard to add game-changing new features to your PC on the other hand the May 20 19 Update is much more chill by and large it simply improves the features already in your PC remember all those videos where people were caught off guard by unexpected Windows updates disrupting their work Microsoft has now reworked the way in which Windows signals upcoming updates that require you to reboot your PC there’s a new icon on the taskbar intelligent active hours that try to determine when you’re using your PC and even the ability to pause updates for seven days for Windows 10 Pro and now Windows 10 home users – this one’s simple and fun if you’ve wanted to drop in the more complex K emoji such as the flipping the table expression it’s dead simple just open the emoji keyboard and you’ll see a list of popular key emoji as well as symbols to add to text messages and chat windows don’t forget Windows now supports emoji version 12 with objects

like a diving mask and flamingos there’s one fairly major aesthetic change the May 29 update that you need to know about Cortana and the windows search box are now separate boxes it’s not an enormous change though it does mean that Crotona is largely voiced driven now like a smart speaker windows search should already be fast but there’s a new behind the scenes indexer to make it even faster oh and you know if we’re talking aesthetic changes don’t forget about the new light theme either automated Troubleshooters is a feature you may never see and that’s a good thing if you have trouble connecting to Wi-Fi for example you’ve been able to manually open a troubleshooter that run some automated tests and procedures to solve your problem now Windows is promising that it will do more of it behind the scenes so if there’s a problem Windows will figure it out and solve it automatically virtualization is one of the selling points of Windows 10 Pro from the oddly named Windows Defender application guard browser to a full fledged hyper-v virtual machine while Microsoft would like hyper-v to live in the cloud Fanbox lives on your PC it’s a Windows PC within your Windows PC carving out a chunk of its resources to create a safe space to test software and websites it’s extremely simple to use you simply open sandbox test whatever website or app you wish and then close sandbox whatever was in sandbox vanishes when sandbox goes away that’s all for my favorite features but there’s lots more in my formal review as well as a separate list of hidden features that fly beneath the radar so what are yours tell me in the comments below and check out more Windows 10 tips and news from PC world and thanks for watching

Repair Windows 10 using Automatic Repair

what you guys got another video here for you in this one we’re gonna be looking at windows 10 automatic repair and how it can help you repair your Windows 10 operating system now if you’re having issues with say for instance boot you’re not issues where you’re getting reboot loops or you may be getting to the desktop you got pop-ups or some sort of issue after you’ve booted up maybe a program you’ve installed driver issues Windows updates issues corrupt registry or corrupt windows files and you’ve this is normally the first step that you can try to try and fix a lot of those issues so we’ll go through the fixing process of this from the desktop and then also if you can’t boot the system and you’re not been able to get into safe mode or anything like that then we’ll try booting into the actual windows disk and I’ll show you can do the same process from there as well so they start off with the desktop process first so as you can see here we’ve just got this star bun here gonna click on this and we’re going to come down to where it says settings and if you click on settings here inside this settings panel you can come down to where it says update and security click on that there and this will then open up the update and security window come down to where it says recovery and then you will see advanced startup so you see here startup from devices for disk such as USB or DVD change windows startup settings or restore windows from a system image this will restart your PC so this is the area we’re going to go to ok so first off click on this and this will restart your system so once you’ve restarted your system you want to come down to where it says troubleshoot hit this area here and then as you can see here we’ve got a couple of options we’re gonna go into advanced options here and then as you can see here we’ve now got some options here now startup repair is what you want to be hittin here to try to fix problems that keep Windows from loading properly so this is the area here so if you click on this this is gonna run that for you okay so now it asks you to choose the account so we’re gonna choose the account yours will be different – a variety so I’m gonna click on this and we’re gonna push continue now if you’ve got your password here you need to enter your password you can change your keyboard layout here if you wish we’re gonna push continue then it’ll start diagnosing your PC for any issues that you may be having and try to fix those issues for you now you see here startup repair couldn’t repair your PC press Advanced Options to try other options the reason why this is is because there’s nothing wrong with the computer it’s just me showing you what to do but if you had problems it would hopefully try to repair this and it will be notified here okay so you’ve got yourself a little log file here located in this location if you wanted to read that or post that on to a forum to someone to say that you’ve carried out the automatic repair the next option is to go to Advanced Options and again you can go into where it says troubleshoot here and there is some other options here so I’m going to go back into Advanced Options and as you can see here you’ve got a system restore which is restoring the computer back to a time when the computer was working properly and normally you can set this up so you can actually roll that computer back to that time system image recovery he’s basically recovering a PC from an image star repair which is what we’ve covered all you got you come on from startup settings and so on here basically these year other options that you’ve got as well so let me just show you how you can get this if you can’t boot up the machine if you have any issues and you want to get to this area so we’re gonna boot up to either a recovery CD or we’re gonna boot up to a Windows CD so they’ve restart the PC before I do that I just want to cover this reset the PC this is gonna reset your PC back to a time and reinstall windows you will lose a lot of programs and stuff like that it will wipe your machine so you gotta be a bit careful when you’re doing that so we’re gonna do here is just reboot a system to a Windows CD or recovery CD so as you can see I’m on a dual boot system here Windows 10 with Linux Mint the Windows boot menu offers you some other options as you can see here please specify advanced options for this choice which is f8 so I’m going to be doing that but once you get to this stage you can now see we’ve got some other options open to us and you can see here now we can see that we’ve got f10 for more options and launch recovery environment so I’m going to do that push one and again it’s the same old process here of troubleshoot Advanced Options and then you can do your startup repair and run that so as you can see here it’s as simple as that ready you just go through the same process with the CD as she continued here and it will start to do a check and diagnose the PC so we’re just gonna go back and continue to Windows 10 so hopefully after you followed that process your system should be back up and running and should be fixed and that’s how you can run the automatic repair in Windows 10 to fix a lot of those niggling issues that you may have you have in with Windows 10 so my name is Brian from bright tech computer cody KO this video helps you out guys I
