      Homeuser Report: Not seeing any issues with Win7 Pro x86 ESU nor Win 8.1 Pro x64
      Using both daily and all patched on November 10th/11th, encountered no issues so far..
      Printer (canon Pixma) still present and functioning on both devices without further intervention post patching.

      Win8.1/R2 Hybrid lives on...

      Not sure where or how to post this. I run windows 10 Home edition. I use Microsoft Edge as my “default” explorer. Something happened recently (perhaps one of those “problem inducing” updates Windows updates?). What is happening is EVERY TIME I start/restart Windows, of when I wake it from screen saver mode, Microsoft Edge appears. Searching the Web I find that I need to run “gpedit.msc” to make some changes to the “Local Group Policy Editor”.
      1. Windows Home does not have gpedit.msc
      2. Little scared to run this if this is what is needed.

      Any other idea’s? If not, can I download a copy of this program to run on my PC?

      Thanks.

        Group Policy is part of the Win10 OS, available in the Pro Edition, but not in the Home Edition. It is not a program you can download and run in Win10 Home. To make it available, you would need to upgrade to Pro, a $100 purchase through the Microsoft Store.

        I do not use Edge. But you might look through the Preferences/options to see it there is a choice “do not start when Windows starts.”

        My guess it wasn’t an update.

        Select the Start  button, then select Settings  > Apps > Startup. Make sure any app you want to run at startup is turned On.

        Do you see anything unusual there?  when the web page launches is it going to a specific page?  One thing I do is go into the old fashioned control panel, (search box on the computer, type in the phrase control panel, then go to programs and features and sort the listing of apps by date.  See if anything recently installed is something you don’t recognize and uninstall it.

      Checked settings.. All OK. Checked Control panel.. All OK. I Should have been more clear perhaps. The issue I am having is that Bing (running in Microsoft Edge) keeps coming up when ever I go out of “sleep mode”. It seems to point to other images I can use for my lock and/or Welcome screen.

      • #2312323

        In the Settings App\Personalization\Lock screen
        If you have chosen “Windows spotlight” for Preview I think you will see what you describe. If you choose “Picture” I don’t think you will get the Bing suggestions.
        Also turn OFF “Get fun facts, tips, tricks and more on your lock screen”

      • #2312326

        When you click to dismiss the Lock screen with Windows spotlight set as the Lock screen background, it only performs a Bing search for information about the image if you click on one of the three image captions/comments (at top left, top right and screen center). If you click anywhere else on the screen, you can sign in without any search.

      There’s been a fair amount of questioning “when will 20H2 update” show up to download and install in Windows Update?

      For those Windows 10 systems that have all the Windows Updates and still are not seeing 20H2 update offered, delete the System Files (e.g. Upgrade log files, Previous Windows installation(s), Temporary Internet Files, Error … files, etc.) using the “Disk Cleanup for Windows” app. (see screenshots)

      On 3 of my 4 Windows PCs, 3 would not expose the 20H2 Update. After deleting the aforementioned files with “Disk Cleanup”, all 3 PCs exposed the 20H2 update. And 20H2 Updated without an issue.

      Also, note the 20H2 OS Build Release number is 2009. Before update the number was 2004. See SysInternal’s BGInfo screenshot.

      Screenshots – see attachment:

      delete the System Files (e.g. Upgrade log files, Previous Windows installation(s), Temporary Internet Files, Error … files, etc.) using the “Disk Cleanup for Windows” app.

      You don’t need all that. Just set ‘TargetRelease..’ to 2010 and wait.
      You can always install/download ISO for 20H2 : Directly from Microsoft using MCT, directly from Heidoc.net, using Rufus, using .bat file. Pick your choice.

    • #2313490

      Yep, I no longer use the “Windows Spotlight” for Preview and I now use a Picture instead.  Probloem solved. No more Automatic Bing activations.

       

      Thanks.
