WINDOWS 10 AND DOWNLOADING CAMERA PICTURES

Windows RT

I have a new computer with Windows 10 and Office 2016. How do I download pictures from a EOS 10D Digital Canon camera to this computer? The camera is connected to a computer USB2.0 port. When camera is turned on I hear an audible noise somewhat like a "turkey gobbler", but nothing pops up as a prompt. There should be a sub-program on this Windows 10 system that recognizes and allows downloads in jpg or raw. What is the problem? Cortana sends to a link where there is Nothing applicable to such as a Canon Camera (non-phone camera).

Trouble with Microsoft Sloitaire Collection

Windows RT

I have been on the phone and online help with Microsoft so many times over the past weeks about trying to get the problems solved with the Collection. Problem: none of the games keep correct score. I have used this collection on Windows XP, then Windows 8 and now Windows 10. With the first two systems, the games had 2 reset boxes, one to reset settings and another to reset accumulated scores. The Windows 10 only has one reset and the is for settings. all the chat techs I have chatted with tell me there is a corrupted files causing this problem, but they can't fix it and only a senior tech can repair or replace it. Currently, the win percentage never changes no matter how many games I win or loose. Total number of games played is the total I have played since I downloaded windows 10. I have asked repeatedly to have a senior tech call me to help correct this problem, but no response. I guess they are having more important problems with 10 and don't have time to address the games issues. Between me, the Mircosoft techs and Dell techs, this game app ahs been uninstalled and re-installed at least 10 times and the problem remains. CAN SOMEBODY FRO MICROSOFT CONTACT ME ABOUT THIS PROBLEM??????????????? PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Windows 10 Homegroup problems

Windows RT

I just upgraded two computers that were part of a Homegroup from Windows 7. Added a new computer that came with Windows 10. Now when I try to access the Homegroup and use the same password that was originally used, on each computer it says that the Homegroup was set up on another one. I am unable to either access the Homegroup with the password nor am I able to chnage the password. Every screen I get wants me to join the Homegroup. I can't even set up a new Homegroup.

IPhone 5S Photo Gallery Issue

Windows RT

Whenever I try and import my photo gallery on my computer, nothing shows up anymore for the"tap here to see what happens with this device" or something like that. Nothing shows up for importing photos in the Photos App, either. My computer is aware the phone is in there. The device IS turned on and unlocked, as it has suggested i do if it didn't show up. I only have 558 photos and videos to import (not that much to be honest.) Everything is up to date. PLEASE HELP.....

Prevent windows 10 upgrade on restart

Windows RT

Windows 10 was unstable on my laptop (system freeze or BSOD twice a day) so I have backed out to 8.1 and it is now stable again. However, Windows Update states 'Your upgrade to Windows 10 is ready' and seems to want to install Windows 10 when I next restart. I switched the update settings to 'Download updates but let me choose whether to install them' but this was after this message. I have uninstalled KB3035583 and KB2976978 and this message remains. So at the moment I can't switch off or restart my system without the the Windows 10 install going ahead it seems. Is there a way to prevent this? I would like to get on with some work instead of OS bugs and forced upgrades hampering me. Also, seems that its the Nvidia drivers that are causing the stability issues in Windows 10 (from the forum info). It would be useful to know when Windows 10 Nvidia drivers are expected to be stable? 6 months on and no progress yet.

Windows 10 - Critical Error - Start Menu and Cortana aren't working.

Windows RT

I get this Critical Error problem every other week since i converted/upgraded to Windows 10. After i Boot in safe mode, and restart, Windows will update for about 2 minutes. Then it will say "We couldn't complete updates. Undoing changes. Don't turn off your computer." Then it starts in safe mode. Then i go to misconfig and restart in normal mode. So far this gets my computer to start. But i live in dread of this protocol not working. Also, it appears that my Windows has not been updated for ages because updates have to be un-done each time. Why cant Microsoft fix this problem for so many months? How long more does Microsoft / Windows need to fix this problem? It seems this happens each time Windows 10 does an auto update. Why can Windows go back to the Manual Update option we had in Windows 7?

Not getting latest updates in Windows 10.

Windows RT 8.1

Original Title: Unable to update I can't update beyond Build 10240, the updater checks for updates for an hour or more and just errors, I honestly have scoured forums and everything and can't get it to update. Is there a way to just manually grab the files and install them because I've done everything that I can possibly do to try to resolve this, I've tried clearing caches, I've run the following commands to try to resolve it and to no avail: powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRootWinStoreAppxManifest.xml and sfc /scannow Nothing is working and I'm beyond frustrated, it's also way too late to just give up and revert back to Windows 7.
