where I'm *very* interested in a topic (as you say, it's a starting point then) or if I know something about the topic (and want to see how badly they've mauled it) but the exceptions are seldom.-tomos (January 03, 2018, 04:40 AM)
I have two big features in Windows 10 that I love it for when compared to Windows 7. These two features are Virtual Desktops and the Windows Subsystem for Linux.
This is a feature that allows you to have multiple workspaces to help keep your windows organised.
For instance, if you have loads of windows open and want to get a fresh screen without moving and reordering all your windows around, you can just open up a new desktop.
I’ve done a bit or research on this. It looks like the update mechanism is having issues connecting to the servers.
1)make sure you don’t have proxy connections turned on. Use the following steps to ensure this isn’t the case;
a. Press Windows + R, type inetcpl.cpl.
b. Click the Connections tab, and then click LAN settings.
c. Uncheck the box next to “proxy server for your LAN”.
d. Click OK to save and close the window.
I've got to be honest, I rarely if ever follow any of the msn or usatoday links you post, they're mostly stuff badly ripped off from somewhere else.You've got to start somewhere. It may be a starting point if it's new to you.-tomos (January 02, 2018, 03:29 PM)

Originally Answered: Why did Microsoft call its new OS Windows 10?
Windows 2000, which was called NT 5.0 during development, was actually version 5.0. Windows XP was version 5.1. Windows Vista was 6.0, Windows 7 was 6.1, Windows 8 was 6.2, and Windows 8.1 is version 6.3.
Technically, modern versions of Windows are still based on the Vista kernel and code base — including Windows 10, which is actually Windows 6.4.
Windows 7 = Ver. 6.1= 6+1
Windows 8 = Ver. 6.2= 6+2
Windows 10= Ver. 6.4= 6+4
ISN'T IT OBVIOUS AND VISIBLE THROUGH NAKED EYES.

Also 7 ate 9 is my best answer
