Windows 10 is a personal computer operating system featuring the "universal application architecture" (UAP); apps can be designed to run across multiple devices with nearly identical code, including PCs, tablets, smartphones, embedded systems, Xbox One, Surface Hub and HoloLens. Windows 10 also includes a virtual desktop system, a window and desktop management feature called Task View, the Microsoft Edge web browser, support for fingerprint and face recognition login, voice-based search (Cortana), new security features for enterprise environments, and DirectX 12 and WDDM 2.0 to improve the operating system's graphics capabilities for games.

Many loved their Windows Phone for its superior design. That included the contemporary ringtones. Now, having an iPhone, you are kicked back at square one with a dull variety of ringtones of yesterday. Rejoy, here is how to retrieve the superior Windows Phone ringtones and bring them to your iPhone.

For those interested (Andrew), I managed to bring the ringtones to an old Android (Sony Xperia) phone.
It was nothing more than:

  1. Connect the phone via USB. It will appear as a normal, external drive in Windows Explorer
  2. Open this drive (Xperia arc S) and locate the folder ringtones, placed on the SD-card of the phone
  3. Copy the m4a Essential Collection files (not the m4r files) to that folder
  4. The ringtones will, on the phone, immediately be listed by there tagged title

I wouldn't expect it to be much different on a newer Android phone.

Thanks, this looks like a really thorough write up. I plan to go through it shortly as I just got a new Thinkpad X1 G6 with Win 10 Pro on it. First time I'm using Windows since back in the days of XP. I've already gone through some hardening tutorials and look forward to stepping through your guide.

Windows 10 Upgrade to Version 1809
Since Microsoft pulled the upgrade to Version 1809 because of some users experiencing File Deletion errors, people are hesitant to upgrade. Now it's been made available for download and installing once again. This is a documented and timed experience of an upgrade I just did myself.

I had the problem with the splash screen appearing, and then exiting.  I edited the registry to change it from firefox to explorer. Voila!  Opened fine.  closed PP, opened it again, all good.  That was yesterday.   Today though, PP again would exit after the splash screen.  When I checked the registry, i see that it had changed back to firefox.  So I edited the registry, again changing it to explorer.  And PP now again opens without trouble.   So, am I going to have to edit the registry every time?  Or is there a way to make the edits "stick"?  I am using Firefox 63.0.1

Hi Len,
I haven't had to fix it again since I first fixed it. I recently upgraded to Firefox 63.0.1 (64-bit) and PaperPort still opened fine. I did not even look at the registry entry since PaperPort was still working. But I just looked at the registry to be certain and its value is still "xxx" (which is what I set it to). So, I don't know why yours would keep changing...I don't have a clue what is changing it. If you can't figure it out, I would put the .REG file on your desktop or in your Start menu or pin it to the taskbar so that you have very fast access to it and can fix the problem quickly with a single or double mouse click. I'd like to provide you with better help, but I don't know why it's happening. Regards, Joe

P.S. Thanks for endorsing the article...much appreciated!

Thank you so much Andrew for your time,
I will defenetely share results as soon as I sort this out.
Meanwhile I would like to share some details. I have tried to set up outlook using this account on fresh installed PC and sorted out the "User Profile" and Certificate issues. After trying all options I am confident that this is not general issue and precisely this account related issue. Cose' when I try to install other gmail account on that PC it goes smooth. Checked incoming mails and outgoing mails. Account never sended more than 100 mails per month - so account is not spammer. (In fact this is embassy's non essential communication address). Likewise never received mail noting it was blocked. I will use "Send feedback" option right away and will share results if I receive. Many and sincere thanks for your time and attention. Have a nice life. Arvin.

In current releases of Windows 10, MS removed the ability to format a volume with ReFS. That feature is moved to Windows 10 Pro for Workstations.

Interesting.  Why did I get a different result?

I did boot from the setup media.  And the target volume was a secondary drive.  NTFS was allowed, but ReFS returned the error.

Thanks for the heads up.

This tutorial is about creating a new Microsoft Online User Profile account along with how to transfer your files and settings. You may be faced with this situation if your existing user profile has become corrupted.
2

Often, the users face difficulty in accessing Outlook 2016 PST files on Windows 10 computer. One of the reasons behind it is the improper functioning of MS Outlook when the user tries to open it. MS Outlook suddenly stops working, or it will not open, and the chances of losing crucial data or information within the PST file becomes very high.


These problems might occur due to upgradation of Windows, the configuration of Microsoft applications, and many other applications or programs. The issues faced with Windows upgrade include incompatible software or configuration is not up to date, and this could be one of the reasons why PST file is not opening on Windows 10 computer.


Below listed are some common issues that may affect the health of Outlook 2016 PST files:


  • Issue 1: Incompatible programs: Windows operating system receive updates with time. However, installed applications on an operating system are not updated, and faces incompatibility issues take place. Outlook starts to produce errors, especially when MS Office Suite and more specifically Word is not updated.
  • Issue 2: System files or applications are missing: At times, when the system files or application files are missing, Outlook desists from working properly. In many cases, the Outlook application is not installed completely and requires reinstallation for proper functionality.
  • Issue 3: Abrupt system shut down: The sudden shut down of Windows 10 affects Outlook while it is in the process of email transfer. Later, it might start usually and abruptly shut down after opening. 
  • Issue 4: PST file becomes oversized: It is a prevalent problem when the PST exceeds the pre-defined storage space. Hence, Outlook does not read the PST file, and it stops working on a Windows 10 PC.


Resolution


There are many ways to resolve the inaccessibility issue of Outlook 2016 PST file. To cut the long story short try the suggested fixes.


Manual method to repair PST file


The first aid fix to restore a corrupt PST can be done using the Inbox Repair Tool, ScanPST.exe. Find this inbuilt utility tool on your machine (which is a tool developed by Microsoft to resolve issues related to PST files) and run it. Few simple steps to do this:


  1. Close Outlook properly if it is running
  2. Find and run ScanPST.exe
  3. Browse to locate the PST file or manually type the location or file name (if location unknown)
  4. Launch Outlook and click on File Info Account Setting Data Files
  5. Note file path and file name and Click on Close     OK      Exit Outlook
  6. Launch Outlook and create a new PST in your profile
  7. Drag all the recovered items to the new PST from “Lost and Found” folder


It is an easy process but suffers several limitations like data loss and require technical expertise. Therefore, to overcome these limitations, the recommended fix is to use an Automated method which is best suited for non-technical users as well.


Automated method Third-Party tool for PST repair


In case the above manual method does not work, you can opt for a third-party tool which is another best and straightforward solution to fix such issues. The IT professionals recommend Kernel for Outlook PST Repair tool. Such type of tools offer extensive features to technical as well as non-technical users at ease.


Final words


We recommend the users to first use the inbuilt Microsoft utility first in case of issues with MS Outlook. If the problem still persists, use PST Repair tool to repair MS Outlook data files in a few clicks.
