How To Tell What Version Of Windows 10 Is On Your Computer

May 10, 2017

Windows 10 was released in July of 2015 and has went through several version changes (or major updates). You may have heard of the “November Update – Version 1511” or the “Anniversary Update – Version 1607”; and, the most recent “Creators Update – 1703”. I know for some home-based computer users this all may sound quite confusing to the point that you are not sure what version of Windows 10 you are running.

Any easy way to determine what version of Windows 10 you have installed (and the build number); simply, click the Start Button (at the bottom left corner), then click on Settings, then click on System (cog wheeled icon), then click on About (see screenshot below). Another method to determine what version you are running is CLICK HERE (which will open your web browser to the Microsoft site “Get Windows Creator Update”). Once the page loads, click on the button labelled “Check your version of Windows 10”.

How To Use Windows 10’s “Microsoft Print To PDF”

May 8, 2017

A feature that I really like in Windows 10 is the “Microsoft Print to PDF”. Typically when you print a document, the document is sent to your default printer to be printed. In Windows 10 you have another optional printer to select from called “Microsoft Print to PDF” that allows you to print a document to a native PDF file. What this means is that the document you desire to print does not go to a physical printer; instead, the document is printed (converted) to a PDF file that you can save to your computer, email to another party, etc… An example of how I use this is, when I make an online purchase, instead of printing the invoice to my printer, I simply select “Microsoft Print to PDF” and print the invoice to a PDF file that I then save on my computer.  You can save a lot of paper by printing documents to “Microsoft Print to PDF”…

In Windows 10, the default PDF viewer is Microsoft Edge; however, you can install another PDF viewer such as Adobe, Foxit Reader, Nitro and my freeware favorite Sumatra

[ OFF TOPIC – IMPORTANT ] The Most Important Things They Don’t Want You to Know About the Health Care Bill – I follow the Congress very closely and what I am seeing is unprecedented. We the people need to stop looking at politics as some type of team sport of taking sides and take an interest in following what is going on. Our politicians are taking advantage of us in an effort to dumb us down so that we are a nation of the poor and of the very rich. For example, the House of Representatives just passed a health care bill that many of them (who voted for it) will outwardly tell you, is not a good bill. This bill will hurt the very base of the people that elected our President and it is being touted as some type of a trophy. Please contact your representatives and express your displeasure; seriously, your life and the future of your financial integrity could depend on this. The bill still has to go through the Senate where it is expected to be basically rewritten. A good read on this is at the popular website LifeHackers, where details on how this will impact you is outlined —  “lawmakers plastered on a few lipstick-like changes to the bill: things that they hope will make it look prettier and deflect some criticism, but that do nothing to change the fact that this is a terrible bill and they all know it”… READ MORE

How To Enable Night Light Mode In Windows 10

April 28, 2017

One of the new features that come to Windows 10, after the Windows Creators Update, is “Night Light”…

If you are one of those computer users who is on the computer during the night hours, then “Night Light” is a feature that you may want to enable. Studies have shown that our sleep cycle can be disrupted as a result of blue light that emanates from our computer displays (monitor). A solution to this is to change the hue;: thus,  restricting the blue light. This is where “Night Light” comes in to play. “Night Light” will help you display warmer colors to help you sleep; is fully adjustable; and, can be scheduled to auto turn “on” and “off”.

To get to “Night Light” on your computer: Click on Start > Settings > System > Display > Night Light Settings

Here Is How To Manually Initiate The Windows 10 Creators Update

April 11, 2017

Typically those in the IT field will not immediately download an OS upgrade (or major update) until there is assurance all the bugs and problems have been worked out; HOWEVER, if you are one of the brave you can NOW download the Windows 10 Creators Update. As a general rule of thumb, backup your personal files.

CLICK HERE and you will be taken to Microsoft’s site where you can download the Update Assistant.

Windows 10 Creators Update

Once you download and run the Update Assistant, the update process will begin with the update files being downloaded to your PC (which will take some time). While the update files are being downloaded you can continue doing what you were doing on your PC; however, when performing updates (or upgrades) such as this, I typically do not do anything. Once the update files have been downloaded, the actual update process will automatically begin (which will also take some considerable time, so be patient).
