Windows Update 05-31-19.jpgWindows 10 Announced

I have the latest Windows 10 Feature Update. Does anyone else have it also? I read that it was released last week. One problem I didn't mention when I got it on the 31st is that Malwarebytes thought it was installed in another computer and wouldn't activate(see screenshot below). They generated a new license key for me today and I'm using it now. If you have Malwarebytes activated when you update to 1903, I suggest you de-activate it before installing and re-activate it when done. I plan on doing this when I get 1903 on the other Win10 computer.

The other computer updated to 1903 without me noticing it. Malwarebytes ran just fine afterwards. I guess that is because it is a different brand or they fixed the problem before then.

There must be a mistake here. I just got a Feature Updaate to 1903 today. It was labeled as a feature update.

Microsoft's new Windows Terminal is now available in the Store

Was cute that it was tabbed and one could choose from cmd.exe vs powershell flavors.  Definitely had rough edges though.  Not ready for general use IMHO.

For those already wanting this type of functionality (and then some): ExtraTerm (open source, works on Windows, Linux and Mac, supports cmd, PowerShell, WSL, tabs and 'terminal multiplexing').

Nice!  Thanks for mentioning this.

How Microsoft made it harder to create Windows 10 local accounts

The article mentions two ways around making a Microsoft account:

During the Wi-Fi sign-in page, you can opt to skip it. That leads you to the page where Cortana soulfully begs you to reconsider, reminding you that just a single click can save you precious time later on. Standing firm and clicking No will lead you to the local account page—though there’s absolutely no helpful cue to inform you as such. This may not be as insidious as Microsoft’s 2016 “click the X” debacle, but it’s close.

and

If you manage to be ensnared, however, don’t despair—there’s a way to wriggle free. If you’re stuck on the “Sign in with Microsoft” account page, you’ll need to turn off your PC’s Internet connection: Unplug the ethernet cord, disconnect the router, or turn off your laptop’s WiFi using an “airplane mode” key on the keyboard (if it has one). What you’re trying to do is force Windows to be unable to connect to the Internet. What worked for me then was to then try once again to create a Windows account, knowing full well that it would fail.

Windows Update 08-12-19.jpgWindows 10 Announced

Around 2 weeks ago, Microsoft wanted to give me another update(on my second computer), I got it.  It was a disaster, the screen was black afterwards and the computer wouldn't boot even with a Repair disk or Restore Drive in. I had to unplug the power for a full minute to get it to boot. Thankfully, it booted OK then, but was (still?)at version 1809. I used StopUpdate10 to keep it from updating again for more than the 4 days Windows would give me. I undid that today and checked for an update, a Feature Update showed. I used MediaCreationTool1903 to make a flash drive installation fearing vagaries of the internet installation before. It started OK, but didn't restart at around 30% like previous updates. It didn't restart until after being at 89% for a long time. After the restart, I got a message box saying it thought I had been installing from installation media and giving me a choice of removing the media and keeping my programs or a clean install. I removed the flash drive and clicked on my answer. It went from "Processing update 0% to 27% quickly and changed that slowly afterwards, I got the second reboot at 64% and the 3rd reboot at 100%.  After the reboot I got a normal feature update start and stopped worrying about the update. Because it rebooted at 90%, I thought I might have the Fall 2019 Update, but a winver check showed I had 1903.
