    unable to submit a reply


    sometimes on message boards that you want to join, or websites they ask you for certain information yet when I hit the submit tab nothing happens, it just sits there doing nothing. I am at a loss with Windows 10, it's been over 1 year and I still don't like it. I tried to join a forum , filled in all the information hit submit and "nothing". Does anyone have an answer to this. Is there a way I can redo windows 10 and have it like the 1st day I had it? I wish I could just do a reinstall like the old days, yes it was a lot of work but windows 10 is impossible to learn. Way too much has changed. I just can't get to like it.

    You can clean install Win 10, but bear in mind if you download an iso in the usual way now, it will be the current build (1709). As you know, every 6 months or so a new build comes out, and MS's policy is to continually make changes.
    Clean Install Windows 10 Installation Upgrade Tutorials
    - you can also reset and refresh Windows (separate tutorial)

    And that can cause problems- it's not like, say, Win 7, where the specification remained essentially unchanged - which is great in principle for regression testing (proving the product for release) and general use- familiarity.

    Personally I
    a. Avoid the Start Menu- problems if you have a deeply nested menu and lacks flexibility - and too many snags reported.
    b. Don't (except for News and Money) use the apps
    c. Don't bother with Cortana

    Basically I use it as a Win 7-like 'desktop', with programs installed from the web (not universal apps).
    Note that the Control Panel is still there- but very slowly items are being moved to Settings.

    And having Pro, I have reasonable control of updates and upgrades.

    Well now I really don't know what to do. Maybe buy a new laptop.

    Have you tried different browsers? I use Firefox as my main browser.

    Even if you buy a new computer [desktop or Notebook] it most likely will have the current Version but not the current Build, depends upon how long the seller had it in stock. Downloading the MCT/Media Creation Tool may not have the latest Build, what I got 2 weeks ago was Version 1709 Build 16299.15, we are now at Build 16299.194 [64-bit] or Build 16299.201 [32-bit], but even that may have changed or will change in the near future. To see what you have hold down the Windows key and hit R, type winver and hit Enter.

    I was just commenting on your second topic.. your first is a relatively minor issue (in that Windows is probably not significantly damaged, which would be good) but of course annoying.

    Bear in mind that that is internet, server and site dependent.

    Sometimes tenforums can take a while to respond.

    Are you using a browser with any addons? there are lots of so called browser safety addons such as ghostery or noscript that just break lots of website functionality.

    I changed the appearance somewhat and use a few convenient tools to add features to the basic GUI, and use a replacement start menu.

    I didn't like the look of it at all when it first came out. Others have changed the appearance in other ways e.g. using high contrast themes (see examples in threads in Customisation).

    Humans, and those who supposedly are human, are resistant to change and admittedly there appears to have been changes merely for the sake of change in many things over the years. Being able to adjust to change fits into the grand scheme of learning at least one new thing every day, now matter how small, helps keep one's mind active. Computing in general is always changing and as Dalchina mentioned "What is it you don't like in particular?". Looking back over the years there hasn't been much truly bad in versions of Windows, notably were Windows ME/Millenium Edition and Windows 8, both worked but involved change. Before that were the various 'flavors' of DOS/Disk Operating Systems, MS-DOS 3 and 4 had issues, 5 was good and 6.xx got better.
