Anyone know why my start menu icons disappear sometimes? Like the entire start menu will be empty on the "tile" side, and i have to go find the app hit "Un-Pin From Start" and then "Pin to Start" to get them to re-show up again, and then i have to re-arrange them back to how i had them.

happened to me maybe once or twice only, I think its just buggy (some people have buggier win 10 than others not sure why). Mine did this more often back on windows 8 and when I was running beta testing win 10. rarely happened now though.

So learning tonight Windows 10 doesn't allow me to watch recorded video from FRAPS on Windows 10. Even if I have Monitor Aero Desktop checked. (DWM).

Any player out there work? All I get is sound and black screen. Googled it and ended with lame supposed fixes which doesn't work.

FRAPS always lowered my FPS in games. I'm having pretty good luck with OBS. You can straight record or stream, whichever you want. I'm using it on Win10 without any hitch.

yea, obs is great. You can game record or monitor record. Some games won't let you game record, like Archeage has some stupid security feature that makes you crash when you record it. I get by it with monitor recording.

Is there any good program out there that transfers files and settings like windows 7 easy transfer,or is this not a good thing to do for windows 10.

I strongly advise caution with the statements I am about to make. I nor anyone else is responsible for anything that happens to your system if you follow this procedure.

 

If you copy the "migwiz" folder from the most updated version of Windows 7 64bit, you are able to run the Windows Easy Transfer tool on any version of Windows. It works like a portable app, simply copy the "migwiz" folder to any location in Windows 8 and later (such as a spare HDD, C:, a folder outside the "Users" Directory) and run the "migwiz.exe" file contained within that folder as it contains the required files for Easy Transfer that were taken our of Windows 8 and later operating systems.

 

Do not overwrite migwiz on your version of Windows.

 

A Few Caveats

 

Due to the fact that migwiz was designed for Windows 7, you'll need to go through the registry to change the profile path username for various keys. Nirsoft has a great tool to help you locate the registry keys but it does take a bit of time.

 

Also, I'm not sure if this is true with Windows 10, but it won't change your start screen in any way and you may have to adjust shortcuts if they specify your former profile path by name directly.

 

You will need to delete your old profile from the registry (the S1-xxx) after you have completed the transfer process. Only do this once you know everything is working. You will also need to delete your old profile's "User" folder or Windows will try to save everything to that location.

 

You will need to fix Win+X. Easy Transfer corrupts the hashes used by Win+X. WinAero among others have tools to fix the hashes.

 

As for alternatives... I am not certain if any exist. I thought Paragon and Acronis each had one but that doesn't appear to be true anymore.

 

Just remember, this is a "milage may vary" and "do at your own risk" thing.

Thanks for the info...
post #6090 of 8571
I'm trying to get Speedfan to start automatically in 10. I have UAC off, set the shortcut and .exe to run as administrator for all users, and added it to the "shell:startup". Sometimes I get an error that it needs elevated permissions and sometimes I don't get any message but it never loads. Almost seems like a bug, can anyone help or have any other suggestions?
