download (7)

HoloLens-2-Double-Windows-HoloGraphic

Microsoft is sending out a major update for its mixed reality platform. With the release of Windows HoloGraphic version 21H2, Microsoft’s HoloLens 2 MR headset will get some interesting new abilities.

As the 21H2 number shows, this is still Windows HoloGraphic based on Windows 10. Microsoft has not yet said when the mixed reality platform will move to Windows 11.

Looking at the new features, Microsoft has a few new tools landing with Windows HoloGraphic version 21H2. First up is Moving Platform Mode, which adds new locations for tracking with dynamic motion. Available in preview, Microsoft says will expand the update soon.

This new update also adds more options for IT admins who use HoloLens. Specifically, they can now block public apps, meaning users cannot install such apps. Thanks to a new policy, users can now choose apps that are available from their own company through the Microsoft Store for Business.

More Changes

With Windows HoloGraphic 21H2, Microsoft is also adding PFX certificate support alongside notifications for diagnostics notifications. Elsewhere, Microsoft is changing restarting, allowing to schedule updates.

Finally, Microsoft has also made general improvements to the platform, such as advanced diagnostic logs on HoloLens. Windows HoloGraphic 21H2 is available to HoloLens 2 customers now. Users and admins can get it by navigating to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Check for Updates.

Back in May, Microsoft launched Windows HoloGraphic 21H1. Windows Holographic 21H1 adds a Power menu to the Start Menu of Windows 10. Users can access the new menu via the profile icon. Here options include shutting down the headset, sing out, and restart the HoloLens 2.

Tip of the day: Whether you’re planning an upgrade, tuning CPU timings, or just curious, it’s handy to know information about your RAM. In our tutorial, we show you how to check RAM speed, type, and size using several built-in Windows 10 tools.

Microsoft Edge Testing Wikipedia-Backed Site Information Pop-Ups

no thumb

Reddit-Site-Info-Pop-Up-Microsoft-Edge-Leo-Varela

Microsoft wants to provide wider tools alongside the lock icon to give users of Microsoft Edge more knowledge of website security. Specifically, the company is developing a solution that shows more details about a site in the information in a pop up.

Security is important, especially when browsing online. Many users are at risk from attack, so understanding if a website you visit is safe or not. A lock icon is a solid first step, showing that the site uses HTTPS and security tools like SSL encryption. However, it is no guarantee that the site is overall safe or not trying to scam you.

Moving forward, the pop up will show wider information about a site you are visiting, with details from Wikipedia. Ok, Wikipedia is hardly the final word in legitimate information, but the details should give users a solid knowledge of a site’s security.

However, it is easy for someone not associated with the website to edit a Wikipedia entry. There is some concern that the website may not agree with their depiction on Wikipedia. In other words, the information Microsoft presents may be incorrect or simply made up.

More Details

Microsoft has baked in a toggle to Microsoft Edge Dev and Edge Canary in testing. However, it is currently only available to select testers. As well as information from Wikipedia, the pop-up also shows social media pages associated with the site.

Also in Microsoft Edge Canary, the company is working on an “underside panel” that highlights the more important information from the site.

Tip of the day: With many reachable wireless access points popping up and disappearing again, the available networks list can become quite annoying. If needed you can use the allowed and blocked filter list of Windows 10 to block certain WiFi networks or all unknown WiFi networks.

Microsoft Start Replaces Microsoft News on Windows 11, Android, iOS, and the Web

no thumb

Microsot-Start-Windows-And-Mobile

When Windows 11 launches on October 5, it will come with plenty of new features. Among them is Microsoft Start, a tool that is launching today and is also available for iOS and Android. Microsoft Start is a dedicated news feed that is personalized to the specific user, similar to the MSN feed in Microsoft News.

In fact, Start is a rebranding of these tools, effectively replacing Microsoft News and becoming available in the Microsoft Start menu. It will also be available in the Windows 11 widgets service. We have already seen the news and weather ticker as a widget on Windows 10.

More importantly, Microsoft Start is also replacing Microsoft News on mobile devices. In terms of how the service functions, not much will change. Sure, Microsoft Start gets the new UI design language from Windows 11, but it is still the same service at its core.

Publishing

It hosts over 1,000 news publishers and Microsoft taps into its AI and machine learning tech to present personalized news items to users. Microsoft has made a big deal of how its news platform is better than others at avoiding fake news. In fact, the company points to a unique publishing model that removes fake news entirely.

For example, using human checkers as well as AI, although Microsoft did lay off dozens of workers from its editorial team last year. With that in mind, it is unclear how much of a role editors play moving forward or whether Microsoft Start relies entirely on AI.

As well as the Windows 11 integration and mobile apps, a web portal (MicrosoftStart.com) is also available on modern web browsers. You can check out Microsoft Start on your browser now, or on iOS and Android.

Tip of the day: When Windows 10 runs into serious problems, it’s not rare to run into startup problems. Corrupted Windows files, incorrect system configuration, driver failure, or registry tweaks can all cause this issue.

Using Windows 10 startup repair can fix boot issues caused by the most prevalent issues. Though it may seem that all is lost when you run into startup problems, it’s important to try a Windows 10 boot repair so you can at least narrow down the source of the issue. If it doesn’t work, you may have to reinstall the OS or test your hardware.

Microsoft Says Windows 11 Updates and Patches Will Be Withheld on Incompatible PCs

WIN_Start_GenZ_Light_16x10_en-US-1024×640

Windows-11-Desktop-WinBuzzer

When Windows 11 was announced back in June, Microsoft said it was a free upgrade for Windows 10 users… with some caveats. Specifically, it quickly became clear it would only be available for laptops with Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 or higher chips. Microsoft is now doubling down on this demand and saying unsupported PCs risk being cut off.

There was thought to be a loophole in Microsoft’s TPM 2.0 demand. While the restriction means automatic updates to Windows 11 are not possible, it was through users could still manually install the platform via an ISO file.

However, speaking to The Verge, Microsoft now says that is not the case. The company now says it could withhold Windows 11 updates for users who take advantage of this technicality. Furthermore, Microsoft points out if may also withhold security and driver updates.

I am skeptical about the last threat. It is very unlikely Microsoft will not roll out security patches platform-wide just to ensure stability across the ecosystem. However, not being able to receive feature updates seems a more credible threat.

Moving Forward

Still, if you are going to the length of installing Windows 11 via an ISO, you could just do the same again for feature updates. Sure, it would be mildly annoying to have to re-install the whole OS again, but a workable solution.

It is clear Microsoft is being a little mean to users with older PCs in an effort to boost sales of new hardware, whether its Surface devices or OEM laptops. It will be interesting to see how this plays out once Windows 11 launches.

Will most of those people fulfil Microsoft’s wish and make PC sales trend upwards for the next year or two? Or are all those people locked out of the Windows 11 experience going to find loopholes or simply sit on Windows 10, which Microsoft is supporting until 2025?

Tip of the day: Tired of Windows 10’s default notification and other system sounds? In our tutorial we show you how to change windows sounds or turn off system sounds entirely.

Windows Server – Migrating DHCP Scopes

windows-10-build-15007-flickr-600×397

Problem

Normally you can just create a new scope on your new DHCP server, but if you have a lot of reservations that you don’t want to have to recreate (for printers network devices etc), then it’s a better option to migrate/copy the scope to the new server.

Solution

1. Copy all the DHCP settings to a text file with the following command;

netsh dhcp server export C:\dhcp.txt all

2. Stop and disable the DHCP Server service on the OLD DHCP server.

3. Move the text file to the NEW server, and import the settings with the following command;

(netsh dhcp server import c:\dhcp.txt all)

Announcing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22000.160

Windows-10-Desktop-PC-696×261

Hello Windows Insiders, today we are releasing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22000.160 to everyone in the Dev and Beta Channels!

IMPORTANT REMINDER: If you are in the Dev Channel, now would be the right time to consider switching to the Beta Channel if you want to stay on more stabilized builds of Windows 11. For those of you who are new to the Windows Insider Program and flighting of OS updates – check out this article for how flighting works. (We use the term “flighting” for the activity of releasing new OS updates to Insiders.)

ISOs now available

Today we are releasing the ISOs for Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22000.132 to our Windows Insider Preview Downloads page. You can use these ISOs to do a clean installation or in-place upgrade.

As you use these ISOs to install Windows 11, you will go through the new Windows 11 setup experience (often referred to as the “out of box experience” or OOBE for short) which is designed to build excitement for Windows 11 right from the moment you turn on a new Windows 11 PC for the very first time. Based on your feedback, we have added the ability to name your PC during the setup experience too. After running through the setup experience, the Get Started app is a new first run experience app that will help you quickly get setup on a new PC. Try these things out and let us know what you think!

You can now name your device directly within the Windows 11 setup experience (OOBE).
You can now name your device directly within the Windows 11 setup experience (OOBE).

Changes and Improvements

  • The new Clock app for Windows 11 with Focus Sessions has begun rolling out to Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel. See this blog post for all the details!
  • We have been testing the ability to see estimates for how long a restart for updates would take in places like the power menu under Start, in restart notifications, on the Windows Update Settings page and inside the Windows Update icon that shows up at the lower right of Taskbar. We are making a small adjustment for this feature so that it only shows on PCs with SSDs. If your PC has a standard HDD, you will no longer see estimates. We hope to bring estimates back to PCs with HDDs once we iron out a few more bugs.

Fixes

  • Taskbar:
    • We fixed an issue where the “location in use” icon was showing in the Taskbar sometimes even though the usage was blocked by your preferences.

Known issues

  • [REMINDER] When upgrading to Windows 11 from Windows 10 or when installing an update to Windows 11, some features may be deprecated or removed. See details here.
  • We’re investigating an issue where on some devices, when going to Settings > Windows Update > Windows Insider Program, only the “Stop getting preview builds” option is visible. This prevents Insiders from selecting a channel. We have posted a workaround on Answers.
  • [BETA CHANNEL] We’re investigating reports from Insiders in the Beta Channel where after upgrading to Windows 11, they are not seeing the new Taskbar and the Start menu doesn’t work. To workaround this if you are impacted, please try going to Windows Update > Update history, uninstalling the latest cumulative update for Windows, and the reinstall it by checking for updates.
  • We’re working on a fix for an issue that is causing some Surface Pro X devices to bug check with a WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR.
  • Start:
    • In some cases, you might be unable to enter text when using Search from Start or the Taskbar. If you experience the issue, press WIN + R on the keyboard to launch the Run dialog box, then close it.
    • System and Windows Terminal is missing when right-clicking on the Start button (WIN + X).
  • Taskbar:
    • The Taskbar will sometimes flicker when switching input methods.
  • Search:
    • After clicking the Search icon on the Taskbar, the Search panel may not open. If this occurs, restart the “Windows Explorer” process, and open the search panel again.
    • Search panel might appear as black and not display any content below the search box.
    • On pen enabled devices, apps may not launch from the Search panel. If you experience this issue, please log out and back in to resolve the issue.
  • Settings:
    • Certain searches using the search box in Settings may crash Settings.
  • Bluetooth:
    • We’re investigating reports from Insiders with paired Bluetooth LE devices that are experiencing an increase in Bluetooth reliability issues and bugchecks after resume from hibernate or when Bluetooth is turned off.
  • Widgets:
    • The widgets board may appear empty. To work around the issue, you can sign out and then sign back in again.
    • Widgets may be displayed in the wrong size on external monitors. If you encounter this, you can launch the widgets via touch or WIN + W shortcut on your actual PC display first and then launch on your secondary monitors.
    • [Family widget] Some users may see a ‘connect a device to see screen time activity’ message even with screen time settings enable.
    • [Family widget] Location information may not be available for some users on iOS.
  • Store:
    • We are working to improve search relevance in the Store including resolving an issue where in some cases the ordering of search results is inaccurate.
    • The install button might not be functional yet in some limited scenarios.
    • Rating and reviews are not available for some apps.
  • Windows Sandbox
    • Within Windows Sandbox, the language input switcher does not launch after clicking the switcher icon on the Taskbar. As a workaround, users can switch their input language via any of the following hardware keyboard shortcuts: Alt + Shift, Ctrl + Shift, or Win + Space (the third option is available only if Sandbox is full-screened).
    • Within Windows Sandbox, the IME context menu does not launch after clicking the IME icon in the Taskbar. As workarounds, users can access the functionalities of the IME context menu with either of following methods:
      • Accessing the IME settings via Settings > Time & language >  Language & region > (e.g. Japanese) three dots > Language options > (e.g. Microsoft IME) three dots > Keyboard options.
        • Optionally, you may also enable the IME toolbar, an alternative UI to quickly invoke specific IME functions. Continuing from above, navigate to Keyboard options > Appearance > Use IME toolbar.
      • Using the unique set of hardware keyboard shortcuts associated with each IME-supported language. (See: Japanese IME Shortcuts, Traditional Chinese IME Shortcuts).
    • Localization
      • There is an issue where some Insiders may be some missing translations from their user experience for a small subset of languages running the latest Insider Preview builds. To confirm if you have been impacted, please visit this Answers forum post and follow the steps for remediation.
    • Chat from Microsoft Teams
      • Experience is localized for English (US) only. Additional languages and locales forthcoming.
      • When you make an outgoing call, while you do not hear a ring tone, the user interface shows that the call is getting connected.
      • In a video call, sometimes people videos freeze or display a black image. There is a workaround to this issue, which is to pin the video that freezes and unpin it to fix the problem.
      • When switching between calls, the previous call is not automatically put on hold, so audio and video streams continue on both calls. Be sure to complete a call before taking another.

For developers

You can download the latest Windows Insider SDK at aka.ms/windowsinsidersdk. The Windows Insider SDK will be continuously flighting with corresponding Windows 11 Insider Preview builds, and the latest Windows Insider SDK for Build 22000.160 is now available.

Important Insider Links

You can check out our Windows Insider Program documentation here, including a list of all the new features and updates released in builds so far. Are you not seeing any of the features listed for this build? Check your Windows Insider Settings to make sure you’re in the Dev Channel. Submit feedback here to let us know if things weren’t working the way you expected.

If you want a complete look at what build is in which Insider channel, head over to Flight Hub. Please note, there will be a slight delay between when a build is flighted and when Flight Hub is updated.

Microsoft Debuts New Windows 11 Snipping Tool

WIN_Start_GenZ_Light_16x10_en-US-1024×640

Windows-11-Snipping-Tool

Earlier this month, Microsoft’s Windows and Surface boss Panos Panay teased the new Snipping Tool for Windows 11. As we pointed out at the time, the feature takes the elements of Windows 10’s Snip & Sketch but brings back the old Snipping Tool name. It was unclear whether this would be an all-in-one new service or whether Skip & Sketch would remain alongside.

It turns out the former is the case. Microsoft is now rolling out a new Windows 11 preview build to the Dev and Beta channels. Specifically, this is build 22000.132 and brings the integrated Microsoft Teams experience.

You will also find the new Snipping Tool in this build. As predicted the new feature is complete replacing Skip & Sketch and taking some of its abilities. It is also worth noting the Mail and Calendar apps have also been updated to reflect the new “Flow” design language of Windows 11.

Looking more closely at the Snipping Tool, it gets some features directly from Snip & Sketch. Snip & Sketch provides more power and functionality than its predecessors, including a keyboard shortcut (Win+Shift+S) for easy access. Additional features include creating screenshots in random shapes and an in-built image editor.

Other App Improvements

Also in the new Windows 11 preview, Microsoft is rolling out a new Calculator app experience. It gets the rounded corners and overall aesthetic of the platform.

Windows-11-Calculator-App

That is the same story for Mail and Calendar. Like many aspects of Windows 11, the changes seem to start and stop with a mere design overhaul… i.e., no new features.

If you want to know more about Microsoft’s changes in this newest preview, check out Windows Blog source below.

Windows-11-Mail-And-Calendar

Tip of the day: If you have an HP, Dell, or Lenovo touchscreen PC, you’ll probably want to enable or disable it at various times. Unfortunately, however, many Windows 10 touch screen laptops don’t make this easy.

Thankfully, through some tweaks, you can turn off the touch screen no matter your device. In our tutorial, we show you how to disable a touchscreen on Windows 10. We’ll also show you to enable it if you wish, which may help if your HP laptop touch screen is not working, the touch screen is not working on your Lenovo laptop, or you’re having problems with any other brand.

Windows-11-Snipping-Tool

Earlier this month, Microsoft’s Windows and Surface boss Panos Panay teased the new Snipping Tool for Windows 11. As we pointed out at the time, the feature takes the elements of Windows 10’s Snip & Sketch but brings back the old Snipping Tool name. It was unclear whether this would be an all-in-one new service or whether Skip & Sketch would remain alongside.

It turns out the former is the case. Microsoft is now rolling out a new Windows 11 preview build to the Dev and Beta channels. Specifically, this is build 22000.132 and brings the integrated Microsoft Teams experience.

You will also find the new Snipping Tool in this build. As predicted the new feature is complete replacing Skip & Sketch and taking some of its abilities. It is also worth noting the Mail and Calendar apps have also been updated to reflect the new “Flow” design language of Windows 11.

Looking more closely at the Snipping Tool, it gets some features directly from Snip & Sketch. Snip & Sketch provides more power and functionality than its predecessors, including a keyboard shortcut (Win+Shift+S) for easy access. Additional features include creating screenshots in random shapes and an in-built image editor.

Other App Improvements

Also in the new Windows 11 preview, Microsoft is rolling out a new Calculator app experience. It gets the rounded corners and overall aesthetic of the platform.

That is the same story for Mail and Calendar. Like many aspects of Windows 11, the changes seem to start and stop with a mere design overhaul… i.e., no new features.

Tip of the day: If you have an HP, Dell, or Lenovo touchscreen PC, you’ll probably want to enable or disable it at various times. Unfortunately, however, many Windows 10 touch screen laptops don’t make this easy.

Thankfully, through some tweaks, you can turn off the touch screen no matter your device. In our tutorial, we show you how to disable a touchscreen on Windows 10. We’ll also show you to enable it if you wish, which may help if your HP laptop touch screen is not working, the touch screen is not working on your Lenovo laptop, or you’re having problems with any other brand.
