Windows 10: Win10 1607 update broke my customizations
Win10 1607 update broke my customizations
Seems the 1607 update is more of an upgrade and many customizations I had previously done have been reset to their default
The first one I'm trying to fix is the volume UI.
Is there a new way to change the new volume UI to the old style version?
I used to be able to go to:
1. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\
2. Find key MTCUVC under CurrentVersion key.
3. Set EnableMtcUvc value to 0
Well MTCUVC is no longer there. Can one still somehow revert back to the old style volume UI?
Seems the 'Restore Old Clock in Win10' is broken too
Click on the Immersiveshell folder
Create a new DWORD (32-bit) Value
Name it UseWin32TrayClockExperience
Set the value to 1
No longer works.
Tried logging off/on
Winaero Tweaker has an option to enable old volume control.
Yes, the volume UI can still be reverted to the previous using Winaero Tweaker. But that same tool has removed the clock option as I assume it's been completely removed by MS. It will probably require an installer of some sort to restore the parts that are now missing.
I really hate digital clocks - they're so visually inadequate. If digital clocks are so much better we're still be wearing them on our wrists rather than tossing them in landfill sites with all the other failed ideas. A traditional watch face is so much clearer to understand. I had multiple clocks for different parts of the world and now they're sort of still there - but just as small digital clock entries. Ugh!
You could use some clocks skins designed under Rainmeter
Best approach is either not to hack OS features, as MS appears to be steadily working towards some sort of simplified standard - I'd guess so as to deploy Windows across a wide range of device types- limiting options of customising it- or if you do so, plan ahead so as to be easily readily able to reapply said customisation.
This would apply too to hacks exposing old programs (e.g. PhotoViewer) or features that for now are still present in the OS, but not made available as you've noticed. These could be removed at any point. (Anyone noticed there's still a Winmail folder present?)
OS hacks can be overridden by Windows updates, and typically by an in-place upgrade repair install, or a new major build upgrade.
Windows 10 updated to Version 1607 and I can no longer access my Synology NAS. I have attempted every potential solution I have found on the net to no avail. I have another machine running WIN10 that I disabled windows update on and it's at version...
After updating my system I don't have an internet connection. My ethernet adapter is stuck on unidentified network. That's not even the biggest problem even. After using the PC for around 10 mins everything freezes and I have to restart...
During the last I updated to Win10 version 1607, everything worked fine.
Today morning, no WiFi connection. In Network and Sharing center I can turn it on, but when I click on the WiFi icon in the taskbar it tells me that is turned off.
Yesterday my laptop was updated to Windows 10 1607. I'm having problems since that update. I now have no folder that simply says pictures...only "saved pictures". Also my virtual keyboard doesn't appear like it did before on start...a small...
