If you have decided to use Windows 10, you may not be having a completely smooth and seamless experience. Nowadays every software or program that comes to the market seems to do so when it is still in development, and Microsoft’s new operating system is no exception.
That does not mean that Windows 10 has been a complete disaster, since many people have been able to update without any problem; But for those who are having a complicated ride in the system we have some tips that can help them.
Of course, you may need to adapt them a bit for the configuration of your own system.
Here are the most common problems in Windows 10, with some ideas and solutions to repair them:
Battery life is a fairly common problem every time an update of this type arrives at an operating system, but it does not seem to be a problem for everyone in Windows 10.
If you have noticed that your hardware consumes much more battery, faster, check on the manufacturer’s website if there is a driver or firmware update, which optimizes your PC for the requirements of Windows 10.
Based on our tests, updates that are constantly downloading and installing Windows 10 can have a detrimental effect on battery life: if the load level seems to be decreasing very fast, it may be due to the updates.
So, I recommend updating everything the computer has pending, which will make it less busy in the background, and therefore improve the life of your battery.
It is a nuisance, but it is not difficult to solve. Just go to the Settings menu, click on system and then choose your default applications.
Another option is to right click on the file you are going to open in the File Explorer, press “Open with” and choose another application, but not before checking the box “Always use this application”.
Software broken or troubled
Windows 10 already overcame its test phase for a long time, but there are still some applications that do not like working with the new operating system (especially the older ones).
If this happens to you, the best thing you can do is simply check the updates for that program constantly, until your developer fixes its bugs and makes it completely compatible with the new system.
This you can do it from the forums of the application or contacting directly with its responsible.
The “Compatibility Mode” is still present and works correctly in Windows 10, so you can also try that: right click on an executable file, choose “Properties” and from there go to the Compatibility tab.
From there you can choose to have the program work as if you were using a different version of Windows. Not in all cases will this work, but it may help.
Many restarts after updating
One of the most recent updates from Microsoft caused a lot of users to start suffering from endless reboots.
It seems that Microsoft has not yet perfected the process of upgrading its system yet.
If you feel comfortable hacking and tucking your fingers into the Windows registry, there is a method to fix this and make your PC work properly again.
If you want to disable automatic updates for Windows there is also a way to do this and it requires you to do a lot of research on this because it is not a simple process.
