    werty posted this registry edit to revert Windows Update back to Control Panel

    Windows Update in Control panel

    Confirmed after restart

    Two reg files
    Note: "UxOption"=dword:00000000, was zero on my test box, but I included it in the reg files in case MS changes the value in future builds

    One Shortcut: WU_Cpl.zip
    Unpack the shortcut and place it on your desktop.

    I agree, even using Boolean in Google search or the site: tag is difficult for some users. It's not necessarily that the user is computer illiterate, it's more that it's not exactly intuitive, or as you state ... arcane language.

    I definitely wasn't saying that.

    Maybe that first sentence should have had a comma in it.

    Huh, I lost a post.

    Rather that write another long winded "we're cool" post, I'll just say We're cool

    Windows 10 Pro

    If you are often using some resource intense software, for example's sake let's say you keep editing massive 3D images with Photoshop or encoding videos or whatnot, and you would also like to browse the net while working but each additional browser tab is eating your resources and you'll notice that CPU is running on 80 to 100% all the time, there's a neat trick to reduce the CPU utilization.

    Windows 10 Technical Preview comes shipped with Hyper-V virtualization. Set up a Hyper-V vm and install a copy of W10 32 bit using a local account on it, using dynamic RAM with these values: startup RAM 1,024 MB, minimum 512 MB, maximum 1,024 MB. Set this vm to boot with minimal configuration, only the essentials, removing all Google and Bing and Adobe and such stuff from Startup.

    Now boot your host PC also with minimum configuration. Start the vm, do all your surfing on it. On host, do your video encoding and stuff. You will notice that the vm uses quite a little resources, clearly lots less than if the same browser you have running on the vm would be run on your host instead.

    CON: 1 GB of your host RAM is all the time used by the vm.

    PRO: The vm uses less host CPU resources than the same browser run on it would use if run on host.

    Even if the memory demand of the vm would be more than the 1 GB you have allocated to it is not an issue. Windows can run and your browser open the pages even when the memory demand is constant:

    At the same time the host Task Manager shows how much my surfing on the vm takes the host CPU resources, jumping between 0 and 4%:

    Mouse wheel: horizontal scroll


    Use your mouse wheel, if equipped, to slide left & right on the modern side of Windows.

    For me, this is more natural than using the horizontal scroll bar.

    I also prefer the resizable Start in the previous build to the expandable one in 9926 (the mouse wheel trick makes the All Apps menu a very usable menu)
