We can even try to scan the system for corrupted parts and repair all integrity problems that may be on the PC. We can also do this from a CMD window, with Administrator permissions, executing the command “sfc / scannow”.
For many, it has been a staple of reliable simplicity for almost three decades, having first been introduced in Windows 95. It enables quick searches that allow us to find exactly what we need on our device.
Regardless, there are some stories out there of CCleaner breaking Windows. The point is, why bother messing with the registry if those useless registry files do nothing to harm your PC performance in the first place? Running a registry cleaner is essentially a waste of time and runs the risk of only causing more problems.
Here we show you every possible way to disable automatic updates on Windows 11. The policy that should be changed in there is «Turn off Automatic Download and Install of updates». Always keep in mind that disabling Windows updates comes with the risk that your computer will be vulnerable because you haven’t installed the latest security patch. Each user has to weigh the risk of giving Microsoft another opportunity to do damage versus the risk of leaving their system vulnerable to attack. If you choose to disable automatic updates, make sure you have good security software and keep it up-to-date. Windows 10 get the updates automatically from Microsoft on every month the Second or sometimes the fourth Tuesday.
You then have to unzip the file that you downloaded, and merely double-clicking on the file would open it using the Windows’ built-in support feature for zip files. Else, you’ll be redirected to the download folder if a different path has been specified. After you click on “Download Zip File,” a box will appear asking you which operating system you have (32-bit or 64-bit) as well as the file version. Pick your operating system, the latest file version and click on it.
Microsoft still has some bugs and other issues to fix, too. Right-clicking on a file places these UI shortcuts at the top of the menu, where at least I can hover over them. But the option to, say, rename a fileonly appears there in that row of icons. No, you can also scroll down to “Show more options” and get a second, expanded, Windows 10-like column of menu options. It all feels like Windows 11 was simply tacked on to it all.
Microsoft’s Xbox app might be my favorite new feature, because it lets you stream Xbox One games to your laptop. It works surprisingly well, with no lag even over a Wi-Fi network. You simply plug in an Xbox One controller via USB and then connect to your Xbox One and start streaming over a local network. You can also create party chats straight from your laptop with Xbox friends.
