Hi guys, Happy New Year everybody.
2015 ended in a fatal computer crash for me, so I now find myself in front of a new computer running Windows 10 – I had XP on my old rusty bucket so the leap is rather huge!
I’m slowly getting my head around how things work, but a few tips from seasoned Window 10 users would be much appreciated.
Most importantly: what did they do to the WMP? It looks like a shitty i-Tunes, and the one CD I’ve ripped so far (just to find out how things worked, before I try to upload my old WMP library from an external memory) only displays as an album, without showing the individual tracks in a list, possibility to rate them etc.
I tried to look for ways to change that but no luck. Is it because I ripped it in the wrong format? Because it was a trial run I didn’t bother to choose and went with the default settings, is that the problem? Is it possible to get the WMP to look like it did before?
Another annoyance is the red squiggly line appearing as I write anything (right this minute for instance) plus the first letter of random words in the middle of sentences turning into capital letters without my doing! I thought it might be connected to the settings in Word, so I unticked the spellcheck/grammar box there, but it made no difference here. How do I get it to go away? It’s making writing and proofreading everything very tiresome.
So, the apps. I don’t quite get what the point is of those, but I did have a trawl through the free apps in the store last night, and I’m sure some of them are useful or entertaining, but which ones? Presumably they slow the computer down if you have too many, so I only want to install them if they’re going to be great.
Any tips from the good people of the Afterword?
Any tips in general about Windows 10 that you wish someone would have told you when you had it installed instead of finding out months later through trial and error?
I’ll be very grateful for any information, as I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed by all of these changes at the moment!
Thanks in advance,
