Help with windows 10

Recommended Posts

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..

    • Chocolate peanut butter stout is back on tap at the Boathouse in Ely.    A little thinner than last year but still a treat!
    • Surface water temps in Ely are 69-71 on the lakes we visited.  I think that’s a really fast warm up though and the actual spawning depth temps are lower.  I haven’t seen any bass bedding activity and the 18-19 inch smallies I’ve been catching are all fat and egg laden.     They’re sitting deeper than usual this time of year too.  The walleyes are are still shallow.
    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
