    Is there a way to show battery status on the lock and logon screens?


    Is there a way to show battery status on the lock and logon screens of the Windows 10 on a notebook computer?

    Thanks for the info. I did not know you could add apps from the store to the default selections.

    Anyway, I tried creating an account simply for this, and the system told me that it doesn't look like I am connected to the Internet, and gave me an error code of 0x800704cf. Well, I am very much connected to the Net.

    Its always been like this with MS. I just want to do something I end up having to fix A first, then before I could fix A, I need to fix B first, and so on.

    Hi, I assume you mean you get 0x800704cf when trying to use the Store?

    Are you using a VPN? That would do it.

    If you search for
    store 0x800704cf
    you will find many results - generally and some in this forum that may help you.

    No, I am not using a VPN. I even turn off the Windows Firewall to accommodate it, no go.

    Yes, I know I have to check the error code.

    If I do't use the Win 10 app and go to the store using the browser by logging in to my MS (email) account, it wants to verify my identity when I try to sign-in. I have to give it an alternate non-MS email address for it to send a verification code to, but it's never reaching the inbox or spam box.

    Windows 10 Store Error Code 0x800704cf - Microsoft Community

    - see the last post suggested by a MVP

    Also run the bottom troubleshooter

    Note: I don't personally know what happens if you try to use the Store logged in as a local user.
    I always log in with my MS Live Id.

    So you need a MS Live id to log in to the Store.

    See the link I posted above... and

    I just did, and it's the same error. I did not use my other MS ID's because I knew it would simply collate all data in this system and still NOT give me what I need. You said go with Live, there you go.
    . . .

    I am not taking this out on you, but rather on MS.

    I just moved to Win 10. I had been on a Win 7 system - and resisted Win 10 - for years. The keyboard and then the screen died, I chose to use external ones to stay with Win 7, instead of getting a new system with Win 10. Less than two weeks ago, the system board ultimately expired, so I had no choice but to move to this new Win 10 system. I am still transferring my stuff over, and trying to fix the various compatibility and non-operation issues.

    Like many Windows users, I had stuck with XP for a long time until Win 7 came out. I had been dealing with issues MS has been dishing out on me for... ever since Win 3.11. Along the way, NT was the most bloody and Win 95 was the top lemon.

    Today, Win 10, for Bill's sake, I just want to have a battery status on my lock or logon screen.

    Remember to try the troubleshooters I've mentioned above, but absolutely no guarantees. I think this may be a question of looking for different solutions.

    To distinguish between Windows and a user profile problem, create a new user for test purposes. Log in as that user and see if you can use the Store.

    Read through the tutorial I posted above, see if any ideas.

    ==========================
    I also very much disliked Win 10 when I first saw it after first release. At that point everything was borderless and white- so you couldn't tell where one window ended and another began when overlaid.

    I use Aeroglass - 3rd party- to make title bars and borders semi-opaque, rounded corners, a bit like '7. And I use - like many here- Classic Shell (now Open Shell) start menu - Win 10 style menus simply don't cope with larger deeply nested start menus- they flatten them out after about 3 folders deep.

    I avoid apps mostly and use downloaded programs.

    And I've stayed with 1709. The 6 month feature upgrades are becoming a joke.
