    Music. on a pc. then to a phone.

    Okay, so I tried just copy-pasting mp3s from my PC to my phone plugged in via USB, then used AIMP to create a playlist from the folder and played it over my speaker. It was relatively painless. I still don't see what's so friggin' hard about a player that will let me transfer my hard work and...

    spotify: login to your account *fills in username and password, hits enter* spotify: that username or password are incorrect. *clicks "resend password" link, fills in email, hits enter* spotify: "that email is not associated with any account *(knows that's goddamned horseshit because he...

    Need remote access that hosts on W10, clients on Chromebook (or linux (beta)), and lets me remote in to sign-in page on W10.

    Yeah I think I got it working okay, but didn't check to see if it will let me remote in when host is at login screen.

    Need remote access that hosts on W10, clients on Chromebook (or linux (beta)), and lets me remote in to sign-in page on W10.

    Whelp, no sooner had I posted this and tried to install TV again and the third time was the charm because I got it working now, sign out sign back in and all. Hopefully all the settings will stick and it'll just work from here on out, because I won't have much ability to troubleshoot as I'll be...

    Need remote access that hosts on W10, clients on Chromebook (or linux (beta)), and lets me remote in to sign-in page on W10.

    I used TeamViewer for years and really liked it, not least because of how well it did unattended access, right down to letting me log in to my W7 PC from the password prompt, restart or sign out without getting dropped and then sign in past the password prompt, etc. Unfortunately, I can't get it...

    2-pane File Explorer replacement that doesn't sacrifice functionality

    I mean that generally, but the specific feature I was testing for was the address bar. You know, This PC> System (C:)>your>directory>here>blablabla. It's actually kind of hot shit in File Explorer. At least, compared to every...single...supposed...Explorer...replacement...I...tried. I tried like...

    W10 disappearing start menu icons

    I uninstalled Brave. Too many problems, plus sync is kaput now, has been for a while. Ever tried getting bookmarks out of Brave mobile? Uninstalled in disgust after that.

    W10 disappearing start menu icons

    All free versions; Avast Free, Malwarebytes Free, Superantispyware Free. I deleted the .bat I used, but I happened to still have the tab I DLed it from open in Chrome: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/5645-rebuild-icon-cache-windows-10-a.html :D

    W10 disappearing start menu icons

    Again, this is weird. At this point my plan is to back up my system once my malware and virus software is done scanning/removing, and I've finished a bit of cleanup; then, reinstall w10 from disc. And wait 50 years as the fresh install slogs through all the updates. I guess I could burn a fresh...

    W10 disappearing start menu icons

    Should've mentioned that I tried rebuilding the icon cache already. Tho' the extent of my efforts was double-clicking a bat file I got from TenForums, or some such place. (LoL, your link is to TenForums, so it's better than long odds that I just used the downloadable form of the one you linked...

    W10 disappearing start menu icons

    This is weird. No matter what I try to install, it doesn't add the folder menu, program shortcut, etc., to the Start Menu. I mean I just reinstalled Windows a couple weeks ago, not counting the two months I just spent in hospital with my rig powered down. Was still reinstalling essentials so I...

    W10 disappearing start menu icons

    I just reinstalled Avast Antivirus, Malewarebytes, and Superantispyware a couple days ago and they all gave me a clean bill of health. Just now I restarted (windows 10 current) and 3/4 of my start menu shortcuts were gone (the apps are all still there). I tried reinstalling a couple of the...
