Windows 11 Support Thread

Had to get a new work laptop. I must say win11 is annoying but less of a trainwreck than I thought it would be.... after I ran ReviOS on it anyway oh boy does it have bloat.

Win 11 IoT LTSC has been released if you're looking for a lightweight version of 11 ;)

 

Hands-on with Windows 11’s ChatGPT-based advanced Copy-Paste feature - Windows Latest​

Microsoft’s PowerToys recently received its most significant AI update on Windows 11 (and Windows 10). Windows users already love PowerToys for its collection of handy utilities, and the new update adds an “Advanced Paste” tool to the list, making things even better.

Advanced Paste is an AI-powered tool that can convert the code snippet copied from the clipboard into your preferred programming language. For example, if you have a code snippet in C++ that you want to convert into Python, Advanced Paste can do that for you.

Windows Latest was at the Build 2024 developer conference, where we noticed how Microsoft quickly converted XML into JSON using PowerToys. The company also revealed that using the more advanced version of the feature, it’s possible to convert any popular programming language to your preferred language, but there’s a catch.

PowerToys’ AI-powered copy-and-paste needs your OpenAI API key to function.

To use the feature, you’ll need to open PowerToys > Advanced Paste, turn on the feature, and then manually toggle the Paste with AI option.

This will open a new dialog with quick instructions on where to find the OpenAI API key for ChatGPT. After creating an account on OpenAI, you can enter the API key and save the changes.

 

Microsoft: Windows 11 preview update causes taskbar crashes - Bleeping Computer​

Microsoft warned customers on Thursday that the May 2024 non-security preview update for Windows 11 is causing taskbar crashes and glitches.

This month's KB5037853 optional update was released on Thursday, and it fixes multiple File Explorer problems and 32 other issues.

Today, one day after this cumulative update was rolled out, Redmond added a new known issue to the KB5037853 support document confirming that Windows 11 22H2 and 23H2 users might experience taskbar issues.

"After installing this update, you might face issues using the taskbar. You might notice the taskbar temporarily glitching, not responding, disappearing, and reappearing automatically," the company said.

"Additionally, this issue might be reflected in the Event Viewer with Application Error ‘Event ID 1000’ under Windows Logs, listing 'Explorer.EXE' as the 'Faulting application name' and 'Taskbar.View.dll' as the 'Faulting module name'."


Microsoft also released the optional KB5037849 Preview cumulative update for Windows 10 22H2 yesterday.

This update is impacted by four known issues, including two long-time problems where Copilot is causing icons to jump between displays and not being supported when using a vertical taskbar.

The other two are Microsoft Connected Cache (MCC) node discovery being broken when using DHCP Option 235, and Windows users seeing 0x80070520 errors when trying to change their accounts' profile pictures.

Is this the one that I just installed to Fix the taskbar issues?!!


Don't get me started....
 
VLC is mainstream, havent seen people use K-lite or MPC for years.
True but it never has anything..... though also true with HEVC having become mainstream there is less random need for it. I remember when fansubs did the weirdest codec experiments.

K-lite does have MPC though which is great for files with subtitles.... VLC seems to be oblivious to how stupid it is to keep them in the video frame.
 
Meh. Taskbar still unresponsivev at times and have to restart it to use start menu or when need to go to file explorer.

Windows 11 sucks donkey balls.

Win11 on 4 machines this side ... never had a problems on any of the 4 with similar issue.

There must be a conflict? ... Does it do it from the get go on a clean install ?

Rando bug that hits win10 too sometimes.... only fix is to wait for next update or roll back to previous one.

EDIT: sometimes using process explorer/hacker or something similar to restart all explorer.exe instances also works
 
Also try CTRL+ALT+DEL and then log out as the current user and then log back in again - that often sorts out an unresponsive taskbar in both Win 10 & Win 11.
