Step 4: Type in the New password and confirm password, and press Enter. You will log into system, at the same time the password is set to the new one.

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Adoption Increases Preceding April Update Launch

Friday, April 27, 2018 2:16:47 AM America/Los_Angeles

Delaying Windows 10 April 2018 Update could, overall, prove to be good for Microsoft, since the longer it may take for the company to ship the latest version, the greater number of PCs are updated for this release.

Statistics given by AdDuplex for April 2018 demonstrate that Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (version 1709) has become running on more than 92.1% belonging to the Windows 10 PCs available to buy, and adoption keeps improving regular monthly.

The second most-used version of Windows 10 at this time is Creators Update (1703), which is often running on 3.2% using the PCs, and then by the Anniversary Update (1607) with 2.9%. It's important to note, however, which a Anniversary Update should cease being receiving support from Microsoft, this could be the primary reason not only for your decline, but for the Fall Creators Update receiving targeted users.
"Redstone 4 just around the corner"

Only 0.7% on the Windows 10 PCs remain to be running the November Update merely 0.4% are stuck regarding the original RTM build shipped in July 2015. On the contrary, 0.8% of the systems are presently enrolled in the Windows Insider program and running preview builds of Redstone 4 and Redstone 5.

When it concerns Surface devices, AdDuplex says the area Pro 4 has actually been the top model with 34%, as you move the Surface Pro 3 can be the runner-up with 20%. The 2017 Surface Pro improved quite fast to accomplish 12.7%.

A unique Surface Book shows a share of 6.5%, even though more expensive Surface Studio all-in-one PC is a lot behind with 0.3%.

Microsoft is now giving the ultimate touches at the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, given that the latest rumors are accurate, the go-ahead button really need to be pressed within the first occasions of May. Initially, the kickoff was projected to set up on April 10, but Microsoft delayed the launch due to a BSOD in the RTM build.

How to add Google Docs to the Windows 10 New section of the context menu

Tuesday, April 24, 2018 3:51:50 AM America/Los_Angeles

In early 2018, I received an email from a TechRepublic member asking me to revise and update an article I wrote back in 2012. In Add Google Docs to the Windows 7 New menu (revised), I showed how to add various links to Google Docs to the New section of the Windows 7 context menu. It was a complicated hack of the Windows Registry and not something anyone should undertake lightly.
More about Windows

Low Windows adoption rates means Microsoft could be losing grip on the enterprise

20 quick Windows tips for power users (free PDF)

Since receiving that email, we have been exploring other options users can take to add easy access to Google Docs to Microsoft Windows 10. The simplest and most efficient way is to add links to the Chrome jump list located on the Taskbar as explained in How to create new Google Docs using jump lists in the Microsoft Windows 10 taskbar.

However, despite showing you an easier way, and despite the warnings, some of you will still want to use the method that involves hacking the Windows 10 Registry file. Here are the steps you can take to add links to the Windows context menu that will allow you to start a new Google Doc, Spreadsheet, Presentation, or Drawing.

Editing the Registry

The total amount of editing to be done to the Windows Registry with this technique is too great and too rife with the possibility of error to list in this article. Instead, to simplify the process, I have created a downloadable file that you can use to do the edit for you. Click the link below to download the file and then extract its contents into an empty folder.

The file was originally created by HowToGeek for Windows 7 but has been modified to reflect changes made by Google over the years. That is the other major drawback of this technique, besides editing the Windows Registry, Google could change the links to create new documents at any time, which would break this hack and require another revision.

Copy the four icon files to the Windows folder so the system can find them. Next, run the AddGoogleDocsToNewMenu.reg file by double-clicking it. The system will warn you about editing the Registry file, click OK and let the edit take place.

It may take a few seconds for the change to finish processing, but the next time you right-click on an empty spot on the Windows Desktop and navigate to the New menu item you should see four new entries.

Domain

This edit is specific to the free version of the Google productivity suite. Subscribers often use Google Docs from within a domain structure. In this situation, the AddGoogleDocsToNewMenu.reg file must be changed to reflect the domain.

Right-click on the AddGoogleDocsToNewMenu.reg file and open it with Notepad or some other text editor. Do not just double-click it or select Open¡ªthat will just run the file with the wrong links. Change the links of each section to reflect your domain and then save the file.
Revert to normal

If you want to remove the links from the New item list of the Windows context menu, double-click and run the other file located in the download called: UninstallGoogleNewMenu.reg. This file will eliminate the keys created by the other file and revert the New menu back to its default settings.

Be careful

This technique should work for any version of Windows 10 and as long as Google maintains the current file reference system. However, it is the more dangerous option. Adding links to the Taskbar makes more sense, particularly in an enterprise environment, where IT departments frown severely on users editing the Windows Registry.

How to Open Microsoft Office Apps in Safe Mode

Monday, April 23, 2018 2:35:41 AM America/Los_Angeles

Comparable to Windows, Microsoft has generated a Safe Mode feature into its popular productivity suite, Office. If you're running into issues where documents crash the software program after you open them, is dependent upon can't save, it's often better to open in Safe Mode as well as begin troubleshooting there.

Once in Safe Mode, the applications load a stripped-down sort of the software with not a toolbar, customization options, add-ons, or extensions. These, many times, are the culprits. But unfortunately, you'll never figure that out in case you can't open the diet plan and disabling them separately until you find out cause of hoaxes difficult.

In the Cortana search bar, type Run and then click the first result to open a Run dialog. Or, just press Windows + R.

Type one of the most following commands (dependant on which program you're eager to open): winword (Word), excel (Excel), powerpnt (PowerPoint), outlook (Outlook), mspub (Publisher), visio (Visio). The string often is the program you opt for, followed by a spot, and then /safe. One example is: winword /safe would open Word in Safe Mode.
