    How to disable desktop.ini and thumbs.db creation completely? (8.1)

    Hello! I would like to disable the creation of these spam files totally. They provide features that I never use in the most cumbersome way. Once upon a time there were registry keys that worked: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00...

    Can I change the log-in/log-out screen from ugly flat colors to a background image?

    Thanks, but that only effects the lock screen. Which you can actually modify using windows' own settings.

    How to resolve the mystical "The system cannot find the path specified" issue when attempting to install drivers?

    Hi! I'm trying to install a driver for my old printer. I used this old guide before and it worked, but I now get mentioned error: Guide; How to add HP Laserjet 1010 / 1012 / 1015 Printer to Windows 8 I found a different guide, which also results in the same error message: HP LaserJet 1010 on...

    Solved, but how? I started to get the same problem with a printer driver, that I have used before. But now I can't install it because of this.

    Can I change the log-in/log-out screen from ugly flat colors to a background image?

    I can't find this option. Is it in the modern UI settings somewhere? (My win8 is localized)

    Can I change the log-in/log-out screen from ugly flat colors to a background image?

    Hi! I hate these sorely limited and ugly flat colors that I can choose from. Is there a registry tweak or a third party tool to change it to an image? The closest I found was Decor8. But judging by the videos that only allows an arbitrary color, but replacement with a bitmap.

    I need a good tool to import registry keys/folders from backed up registry files.

    Hi! I found no good way from importing specific registry data (for one application for example) to a new instance of windows. Ideally I could just load ntuser.dat/SYSTEM/etc and just import them to the active registry. Or at least export the keys in a reg file. (An option to edit offline...

    Get "open file location" action to open in Total Commander instead of explorer.

    Hi! I don't know what the official name is. But many programs have this feature. When used an explorer window opens with the the appropriate file(s) highlighted. I want it to be opened in TC. There's a similar (but simpler feature), opening a folder. Which can be made to open in TC via this...

    How to stay updated with drivers on a Ryzen based system?

    Ugh. I can't find a way around getting a BSOD when trying to remove/update/disable/whatever the USB 3/3.1 host controller... Any ideas? How can I wipe the driver manually? (In registry or removing driver files manually)

    How to stay updated with drivers on a Ryzen based system?

    Yeah. I got fed up with the issues I had with win 10 not long after it was released so I got back to 8. I hoped it would get less buggy and stable. But I still here of more and more issues... Maybe I'll try it again with the impending RS4 version.

    How to stay updated with drivers on a Ryzen based system?

    I don't know either, but I think it might have caused all the suckage, when the installer tried to remove it. Causing a BSOD, which left me with some drivers removed, but no replacements installed.

    How to stay updated with drivers on a Ryzen based system?

    Actually I'm running Win8, but I guess you meant that. That problem is that I can't remove the driver. I tried removing the USB3 Host Controller, I tried updating the driver but I always got a BSOD.

    How to stay updated with drivers on a Ryzen based system?

    Yeah... That wasn't updated, now I did. My title was correct I have a Ryzen CPU. Didn't even remember that this forum has system specs.

    Repair Install Windows 8

    You mean the new disk I have, which I want to use? Is that with the "keep personal files option"? (So does the "nothing" option mean a reset?) (I of course know that the refresh feature does in the installed version. Not sure if I have the disk for it though)

    How to stay updated with drivers on a Ryzen based system?

    Did you actually try that? That was the problem. I tried to install the new version of the drivers but I got a BSOD. (I also get a BSOD every time I want to remove or disable one of the USB stuff in Device manager. I think it's the "AMD USB3 Host Controller") I had to run the installer in...

    Repair Install Windows 8

    How to stay updated with drivers on a Ryzen based system?

    Since MS arbitrarily dropped support for wind with never CPU-s manufacturers seems to have followed and there are no win8 version of drivers and such. How can I keep recent versions of drivers without getting screwed? Is there a guide with tips around? Getting screwed would be for example...
