[RELEASED] Windows 10 - NEW THREAD

Recommended Posts

 

Noticed a few things I really don't want like xbox are still there I managed to get rid of xbox with this advice http://www.teoti.com/useful/136127-how-to-remove-xbox-from-windows-10.html

 

I took the more extreme option and used PowerShell to delete all bundled apps :hihi:

 

All gone or specific apps

 

Some nice tweaks on the same site too.

Just a quick question if anyone knows - are the .isos still available for download?

 

The reason I ask is that the initial ones were full of bugs (Add/Remove apps not working, explorer crashing everytime drivers/apps removed - apparently M$ did a last minute overhaul before final release (Source: a fellow Zorin moderator who 'has connections') ;)

Upgraded to Win 10.

I am the only user, so log on as "Administrator".

I now can only save files to the desktop, as in "Documents" and other folders I get the message "You do not have permission to save to this folder".

I have tried cancelling the check mark in "Read only", to be told I need Administrator permission, but not how to get it.

I see that 5 years ago, David Fish (01-03-2010) ,asked a similar question relating to the Win 7 upgrade. As there were no replies, consulting this didn't help.

Should I (for instance) save the files elsewhere, delete the folder, create a new one not marked "read Only" and restore the files?

Go to settings and RESET the system by keeping personal files, so it will re-install operating system files only, that should solve the issue. Hope it helps.. thanks

Thanks Lookleft, sorry I'm late in replying. Neither of your suggestions apply I'm afraid. I'm using Fences to organise my icon places so I wonder if it could be that, I'm loathe to uninstall it.

Looks like there are some people with issues with Stardock Fences. Have you tried removing the third party software to see if this cures the problem?

Thanks once again Lookleft. I've uninstalled Fences and that has cured the problem. No doubt Stardock will update the programme eventually.

All seemed to install well and then it restarted when complete. But since then I have a black screen with a message box in white at the top left corner with the following text

Been stuck like it over an hour now. Any hints or tips please. Cheers

Cancel last request. After a couple of forced restarts it all kicked back in to touch. Cheers
