Pictures Folder Jumps Back To Top When Scrolling

Here is an odd issue that we had the other day. Windows 10.

Anytime the end user tried scrolling down in his Pictures folder, after about 6 seconds it would jump back to the top.

Very annoying.

Click on START (windows button, lower left side) Gear icon is right above it aka Settings
Click on SETTINGS
Click on Personalization
Click on COLORS
Then uncheck – Automatically pick an accent color from my background

Fixed it!

Last Day for Windows 10 Upgrade

windows10orange

Thank you Microsoft, for your free upgrade. It has been a great BETA software ride and the end users have told me so.

I upgraded as many as I could… Windows 8.1 users and took 2-3 year old Windows 7 (Pro) machines into the new technology.

And the upgrade worked as designed.

So, Thank you Microsoft, for that free upgrade.

If you have a Windows 8.1 or newer computer, backup your data first and then upgrade today. In 2-4 years from now, it will be time for a new computer with Windows 12, 13, 14… and new technology is still further ahead.

Best way to upgrade right now is: msn.com

The splash screen to upgrade makes it easy. However; the upgrade will take a long time. My Updating Windows 10 blog post has more details.

On the 1 and 5 chance the upgrade doesn’t go seamlessly, we can always roll it back, within 30 days. That’s handy.

 

Help Improve Outlook 2016 | Account Name Does Not Display Capitalization

When you change the account name in the Account Properties dialog, the account name shown in Navigation Pane does not display capitalization and shows lower case. The spelling is correct but the capitalization used is not reflected in the Navigation Pane.

If you want any hope of this getting changed,  vote today!

Updating Windows 10 | Build 10586

Updating

After a dozen or so times “upgrading” Windows 10, be prepared to watch paint dry.

It typically takes an hour to download the update and about an hour for it to install. The latest “update” of Windows 10 is full of new feature and security enhancements. Check out the video here: What’s New – November Release

No way around it, just a heads up!

Top Margin Missing | WORD 2013

Every time I opened my WORD 2013 blank document, the top margin was missing:

word2013nomargins

Annoying, but was simple to fix.

If you’re reading the document in Print Layout view and all of the pages appear to be cut off, with no top or bottom margin, the option for hiding white space between pages has been turned on. You can restore them by pointing and clicking in the document.

1. When top and bottom margins are not showing, point to the top or bottom of a page until the pointer becomes a double-pointed arrow, and then double click.

Additionally, you can double check the WORD Options:

1. Click on File (in an open WORD 2013 document)

2. Click on Options

3. Click on Display > Select Show white space between pages in Print Layout view

Much better!
