How To Upgrade To Windows 10 Manually

I got Windows 8.1, and I need to upgrade to Windows 10 today since it’s just out today.  Nonetheless, I had not reserved Windows 10 through Windows 10 reserved app icon, so how am I going to upgrade to Windows 10?  My situation isn’t unique in relation to upgrade to Windows 10, but there are other situations that also prevent Windows 7 and 8 owners to have Windows 10 upgrade today!  Of course, in due time Microsoft eventually rolls out Windows 10 to most Windows 7 and 8 owners.  Still, if you are impatient and want to upgrade to Windows 10 right away, you can watch my tutorial right after the break in which I show you how to upgrade to Windows 10 manually.  Enjoy!!!

How To Bypassing The Recycle Bin When Deleting Files On Windows 7 And 8

When deleting files on Windows 7 or 8, these files are not permanently deleted.  Instead of being permanently deleted, the files you’ve deleted are being stored in Recycle Bin.  This is fine and dandy, because the Recycle Bin allows you to recover the deleted files in case you had accidentally deleted them.  Nonetheless, what if your Recycle Bin is residing on Drive C: and yet the files you are trying to delete are on Drive D: (for an example)?  The answer to this very question is that deleting small files in few number will be OK, but if you’re deleting many huge files and in large number of them will definitely be a very slow process (PC will have to move these files from one hard drive to another).  Bypassing the Recycle Bin altogether when deleting files on Windows 7 or 8, you can speed up the process of deleting files (i.e., large files and in large number).  Furthermore, Recycle Bin doesn’t have to store any file, therefore you actually save space for your hard drive (i.e., the hard drive that is hosting the Recycle Bin folder).  Of course the danger of doing this is that you won’t be able to recover the deleted files from the Recycle Bin.  Within the video right after the break, I’ll show you how to enabling the bypassing Recycle Bin when deleting files on Windows 7 and 8 feature.  Enjoy!!!

Microsoft Is Accepting Project Spark Beta Tester Registrations

Do you want to build game as easy and fun as to play the darn game?  Project Spark, PC version, from Microsoft is accepting beta testers’ signups/registrations.  I got the whiff of this news through Eurogamer.net article “Microsoft game sandbox Project Spark beta sign-ups live,” and you can also check out the super short trailer of Project Spark right after the break.

How To Protect Windows 8.1 From Viruses And Malware For Free Or On The Cheap!

Windows 8.1 just came out to update Windows 8.  Usually, a slight change in the iteration version such as Windows 8.1, hence it’s still a Windows 8 iteration, means there will be little improvement and change to the overall of the iteration.  Nonetheless, Windows 8.1 is not at all like this.  Instead, Windows 8.1 iteration version brings a lot of changes to the Windows 8 iteration.  One example of the major changes to Windows 8 iteration is that 3D printer is now being supported by Windows 8.1.

When early adopters such as I see something new and shiny, we want to be the first people to jump on the bandwagon.  Unfortunately, more than often we think, being the first people on the bandwagon can be rather unfortunate.  In Windows 8.1 case, there are many unfortunate events.  One example would be driver failure.  Nonetheless, with enough heart, an early adopter might eventually feel that it’s totally worth it.

In Windows 8.1 case, driver failure is supposed to be the least concern, but it turns out to be a much bigger concern.  Furthermore, many software that support Windows 8 aren’t so compatible with Windows 8.1, considering 8.1 is a slight change in the iteration versions.  Some of these incompatible software might work just fine with the switching of the compatibility mode.  (Sarcastically, yes it’s still being run on Windows 8!)  I found out that other software basically refuse to be ran on Windows 8.1 altogether even though these are being instructed to be ran in Windows 8 compatibility mode.

With all of that being said, I’m definitely all for being an early adopter, because being an early adopter might push you to tinker with whatever you’re trying to experiment with at the early stage of its lifespan.  By tinkering with things, one might be able to improve one’s whatever skill and knowledge.  Furthermore, being an early adopter means you can be the early warning sign hero in telling the good and the bad about whatever that you’re trying to adopt early.

In Windows 8.1 case, although not a biggie, I’m going to be the early warning sign hero of how to protect Windows 8.1 from viruses and malware for free or on the cheap.  Within the video right after the break, I speak of how to protect Windows 8.1 from viruses and malware for free or on the cheap.  (Not everyone is having a luxury of affording expensive computer security software’s annual subscription, therefore knowing how to protect a computer from computer infections with a shoestring budget is a very cool thing to do.  Saving money is definitely cool!  Saving money but having a computer getting hacked is definitely not cool!  So doing it right is definitely awesome!  Obviously, there won’t be a hacker proof computer security measure or measures.  Nonetheless, without trying to protect your computer from the bad stuffs implying that you’re welcoming your computer to be hacked.)  Enjoy the video right after the break, and hopefully you don’t snore before the video ends.

Upgrading To Windows 8.1 From Windows 8, Some Software Might Not Be Compatible

Windows 8.1 is now available for you folks to download and upgrade, but you must have Windows 8 already installed before you can get it for free.  The upgrade process went smoothly for me, and I think it did take its time in doing so.  Everything is now back up and running like a clockwork.  There is this exception though, some Windows 8 software/apps will fail to work with Windows 8.1.  For one example, I’m using Steinberg’s Triebwerk VST, and this very VST is failing to work with Windows 8.1.  Steinberg’s Triebwerk VST uses the eLicenser.net’s software to validate the license key, and eLicenser.net’s software is also failing to work correctly, locking me out of Triebwerk altogether.  Luckily, Windows 8.1, just like Windows 8, does allow users to switch the software compatibility mode.  To fix the Steinberg’s Triebwerk VST problem, I just located the Triebwerk’s .exe file and opened its property dialog box, selected the Compatibility tab, selected the Windows 8 in the pull down menu form, checked “Run this program in compatibility mode for” box, and clicked the Apply button.  After the compatibility fix, Steinberg’s Triebwerk VST is now working beautifully again.  Of course, I had to use the compatibility fix for eLicenser.net’s software in the same manner before Steinberg’s Triebwerk VST would work again.

To sum it all up, if you feel scare in upgrading to Windows 8.1 for the reason of your software might not work with Windows 8.1, then I think you should wait till you have enough confidence of doing the Windows 8.1 upgrade.  Nonetheless, I think some of your Windows 8 software will not complain when you run them in Windows 8.1’s Windows 8 compatibility mode.  Still, it’s best to be paranoid about the safety of your computer, otherwise you might regret and have to do a roll back to Windows 8.  That would suck for real!  For me, I’m happy that my software are working fine under Windows 8.1.  Now, it’s time for me to take a look around to see what are new about Windows 8.1.
