    You've been signed in with a temporary profile - Fix

    A few restarts allowed me to get into an admin account, where I deleted the .bak SID keys. I was unable to copy the entire contents of the C:\User\folder though. I now have the new user account with the old one still in tact. I am trying to copy the files over manually, which is better than...

    How to apply an icc profile from one monitor to another

    Thanks - I've been messing with the left monitor's custom color temp menu ("user mode") to get it to appear to match (at least to my eyes!) while the right side monitor is left on the pre-set "warm" color profile. Looks more similar now. Brightness, contrast and gamma seem to need similar...

    The monitors are Asus VN247H-P, with the exact same settings in the monitors' settings menu and through the windows display color calibration tool. Yet they look quite different. Thanks for any advice. The laptop is the Asus N550JV-DB72T with nNidia GeForce750M.

    Solved How to set default account in Mail Metro App?

    That is peculiar... I've looked into it further. On my SP2, renaming the accounts shifts them into alphabetical order. But I noticed that my Outlook account is not presented, just my other accounts, which are easily sorted alphabetically. So, I checked on my laptop and saw that my Outlook...

    How to display date in the inbox of Metro Mail app?

    My inboxes show the day mail has arrived, not the date, for the past week. Scrolling through the inbox, it is difficult to find mail based on when it was received. Is there any way to change the view of information display?

    Solved How to set default account in Mail Metro App?

    Mine sorts alphabetically by account name - i just checked this. Go to settings from the charms bar, then accounts, then select the account you want to be displayed first - your Gmail and rename the account name to be first alphabetically. You should see it jump to the top of the accounts list.

    How to remove old users from This PC > Users

    I have a few Temp logons recently, and then had to copy my profile over to a new user account. Creation of the new user account seems to have gone pretty well, once I signed into my Microsoft account, everything associated with it is as it should be. However, there a few of the older "Users"...
