Help with windows 10

10 posts in this topic

I'm am not  computer literate al all. wife a little. our computer seem to upgrade to windows ten all by itself or some did it and is not coming forth. what I need help with is there are somethings that did not seem to take, or I need to set thing up, I don't know, Like for instance on a certain forum I can use the emoto cons since windows 10, and my biggest gripe of al is before, I could pop in a SD card and download to pc and post pics on face, here and others. A windo would automatically pop with choices, view picture and videos----download pics and vids---- ect... not I insert a SD card and nothing. my wife has went intot he system and cant find anyway to view the pics, what is going on. its frustrating, I post a lot of pic here from hunting and fishing but now I cant even look at them. If anyone knows whats up please give a detailed lamen description of what to do. Thank you!

After you put your card in click that file in a desk holder looking thing at the bottom of the page.  Then on the left you will see SD card written.  Double click on that.  Then when it comes up double click on that too.  WALA.  Should work.  When done right click on that SD card thing on the left and format your card.

We like 10 now that we are used to it.

I love Windows 10. Computer should read device connected, and display info, and then proceed as LindellProStaff Garmin, 2 cameras, and other devices read automatically and took right off.I know there are lotas probs with upgrades to 10 from other versions. Usually a reinstall fixes that.

There is an icon on the task bar that looks like a file folder.  That brings up a window for explorer.  Your sd card should show up in the left panel as D: or E: or something like that.  

Or click on the window icon in the far lower left and select "file explorer" in the pop up window. 

I'll set you know if I figure out how to get the autoplay window to pop up. 

Found it....

Click window symbol

click devices

on left click autoplay.

Click the switch to turn autoplay on

click the pulldown under "memory card"  where it says "take no action" 

You will probably want to select "ask me every time"  or "open folder to view files"

close the window.

ta da that should do it.

Look at he very bottom of your screen Boar.  See that thing that looks like a manila file?  Looks like it is in a book holder to keep it from falling down.  Click that and do all stated above..

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
