file explorer detail view column selection template

Windows Vista

A few weeks I could set up the detail view of the Library Pictures to show all of the attributes of pictures such as f-stop, ISO, shutter speed, etc. and as long as I navigated to folder going through the library->pictures, I would get the same view in all of the folders. I suppose my system (Windows 10) was update recently and now I can't do this anymore. Could anyone tell me how to get this feature back. It must have something to do with view templates and how to extend them to all subfolders.

Microsoft Edge: Favorites missing after installing updates

Windows Vista

Following the update forced on me yesterday - which left me without my pc for hours while it downloaded, installed and instructed me what was available - most of my Edge Favourites folders have disappeared with no apparent trace. Can anyone tell me where to find them? or will I have to set them up all over again? If Microsoft intended to send me into an apoplexy through frustration, it very nearly worked. Not a happy bunny, and I'm not the only one amongst those I know who have had similar problems. Original Title: yesterday's neverending windows 10 update

A method to disable Microsoft Edge!

Windows 7

*TRY THIS* This method works on my Windows 10 PC running the anniversary update. This might appear in some other discussion threads but its on the last page and no one will be able to see it... Step 1: Go to File Explorer and then to "This PC" (located in the menu at the left). Step 2: Locate "Windows (C:)", open it. Step 3: Go to the folder named "Windows" then find "SystemApps" and open it. Step 4: Look for this folder named "Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe". Right click and change the name of the folder to a totally different name (eg. AABBCC) and Microsoft Edge would not be able to launch.

Windows Update error - status: 0x80070003, failure source: DOQ?

Windows Vista

Hi folks, We're investigating a case of a registry corruption that sometimes occurs on Windows 10 (1511) systems. Systems with this problem run into an error while trying to install updates. At this time the reason for the corruption is not fully understood, but it may be the result of a third-party tool of some kind. (If your CBS.log file shows status: 0x80070003, failure source: DOQ you might be experiencing this problem.) We are working on a tool to try to solve this, which would enable you to update your computer. We're hoping that you can help us gather some data to refine our tool. If your Windows 10 (1511) system is unable to take the latest updates, we'd love it if you'd run the below script to see if you are encountering this particular problem. The script doesn't change the state of your system in any way, it just scans some log files, filters on some specific error patterns, and checks if corresponding files are present in the system's driver store. Here's how to run the script: 1. Press Windows-R and run powershell.exe 2. Paste the below script into the Powershell window and press Enter 3. If the script indicates you have the problem, let me know! Please note: It's okay if the script gives a red "ObjectNotFound" error, just so long as it doesn't say at the end that corruption was found. :-) Below is the script. As always, your help is greatly appreciated! - John Wink [MSFT] $issuefound = $false $files = gci $env:windirinfsetupapi*.log $errors = $files | Select-String "!!! *inf: *Invalid INF '.*', parsing error on line 0. Code = 1002" $infs = $errors -Replace ".*!!! *inf: *Invalid INF '(.*)', parsing error on line 0. Code = 1002",'$1' | Sort-Object -Unique foreach ($inf in $infs) { if (-not (Test-Path $inf)) { Write-Warning "Please contact Microsoft, corruption found in $inf" $issuefound = $true } } if (-not $issuefound) { Write-Host "Registry Corruption issue not found. Thanks for your time" }

Windows 10 upgrade stalls without giving me further information

Windows 7

I have tried twice to install Windows 10 version 1607 on my HP laptop. I have plenty of room. I let it run for 14 hours and it never left the screen with the swirling icon, nor did it give me any percentage completed information. Microsoft website in checking my laptop advised I have sufficient resources for the upgrade and that I'm behind in some of the Windows 10 updates. Then it goes ahead with the Windows 10 vr. 1607 upgrade. What is making it hang for hours? I'm currently on third attempt. This time without wi-fi and have laptop connected via ethernet. How long will this update take to complete?
