Windows Tips

If you took the plunge and upgraded to Windows 10 or had new PCs installed already running Windows 10, you will no doubt have seen that your PCs have upgraded to the anniversary update. The visual clue for whether your system has updated or not is that the start menu program options now appear to the right of a column featuring the power, settings, file explorer and user profile buttons. The anniversary update is version 1607.

Windows 10 has privacy settings which may have been reset by the update. You can view and adjust your settings by clicking the Start menu, click Settings and then click Privacy.

Automatic updates are more automatic with Windows 10 than they were with Windows 7. This means there is less user control and many users will have seen their PCs reboot to install updates at inconvenient times. You can control the hours within which you are happy for your PC to reboot. Click the Start menu, click Settings, click Security and privacy. Click Change active hours and adjust the hours to suit.

Windows 10 provides plenty of popup notifications. There may be some you want and some you don’t. You can adjust the settings to control how many of these notifications you want. Click the Start menu, click Settings, click System and then Notifications and actions.

As well as clicking the start menu icon, right clicking on the icon provides an alternative start menu with shortcuts to Control Panel, Programs & Features and various other options.
