    [​IMG] good Morning November 12, 2019

    Once as a last note: Who is still on the road with the Windows 10 1803 (April 2018 Update), will receive the latest update today. Because the support ends with today's Patchday.

    .NET Framework Repair Tool has been updated
    [​IMG] good Morning November 12, 2019

    In a nutshell: Microsoft updated its netfxrepairtool.exe repair tool for the .NET Framework to version 4.8.04072.0 Release 1.4. New in this version is that the support for .NET Framework 4.6.2 to .NET Framework 4.8 is now available. The tool can be started directly in case of problems, used via command line or offline. The command prompt commands are well detailed on the page. The offline installers for the .NET Framework are there as well.

    As I said many months ago... Micro$oft chickened out and was too scared doing major changes (aka implement new bugs) for coming 1909. This because a lot of Win 7 users/companies will have to migrate over from Win 7 now as its near EOL in January.

    Microsoft Says Windows 10 1909 Service Pack-Style Update Is Likely A One-Off
    You may have noticed that installing the November 2019 Update for Windows 10 went quite a bit quicker and was hopefully less problematic than some of the prior feature updates Microsoft has rolled out. There a few reasons for this. One is the nature of the update—unlike past feature upgrades, the November 2019 Update...

    Microsoft Warns of Uncommon Windows 10 Thunderbolt Issue bleepingcomputer.com | Nov 28, 2019
    Microsoft has released a support bulletin that warns users of a new issue in Windows 10 that could cause Thunderbolt devices to stop working under certain situations.

    According to the bulletin, this issue is occurring to users running Windows 10, version 1909, 1903, 1809, 1803, or 1709, have Fast Startup enabled, and have multiple devices plugged into a Thunderbolt dock. Yet another reason Fast Startup feature is junk! @Mr. Fox +++

    Mine seems disabled by Dell due to faulty PD chip or something. Mine doesn't work at all! Only Ubuntu detects it but I haven't been able to get it working.

    Is this fast startup aka hibernation? If so, that thing is broken since at least Win7, maybe even win xp, doesn't matter it was called hibernation back then, same thing. It was corrupting my HD on dual boot computers, always first thing I disable since then.

    "Windows 10 features we’re no longer developing"

    - Each version of Windows 10 adds new features and functionality; occasionally we also remove features and functionality, often because we've added a better option.

    - Below are the details about the features and functionalities that are no longer being developed in Windows 10...

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/planning/windows-10-deprecated-features

    Snipping tool was one of my favorites.

    Yeah, the idiocy of the Micro$loth Monkeys never ceases to amaze me. Seems like everything they do that is valued because it is useful or admirable ends up being deprecated or removed. Their intelligence is questionable, to put it nicely.

    Snipping Tool is one of the very few things that got better with Windows 10. Snip & Sketch has a few extra features, but it is clunkier and has too much of a bloated feel about it. The extra features detract more than they add. The sheer simplicity of the Snipping Tool makes it a preferred tool for me. When I actually have a need for something with more useful features for screen snipping and annotation I use SnagIt instead.

    Windows Notepad is removed from the Microsoft Store Winaero.com

    Microsoft pulls Notepad from the Store, making it a bundled app again. Microsoft was about to update it independently from the OS, but this plan has been cancelled. Every small steps can help "get rid of the Store".

    Seen this? @Mr. Fox +++ From worse to even more worse. Micro$lope's sleeping partner's can't make the change going fast enough.

    Nvidia changes the graphics driver downloads to DCH drivers - no more standard drivers
    [​IMG] good Morning December 14, 2019
    Anyone who has previously selected and downloaded their Windows 10 graphics driver via the Nvidia download page will notice a change. So far, if you could choose between the standard driver and the DCH driver, which one you want, you now only get the DCH driver...
