      Susan’s Master Patch List says this:

      I recommend Windows 10 22H2 and Windows 11 22H2 

      • Windows 11 22H2: Recommended 

      • Windows 10 22H2: Recommended

      • Windows 11 23H3 only recommended if you want to fully embrace Copilot

    • in reply to: Monthly Windows preview update. #2644683

      KB5034843 is a Preview. We don’t recommend installing Previews unless you have a specific problem that it addresses.

    • in reply to: MSFT Copilot Pop-Up #2644570

      No UWP Apps (except the MS Store), no New Outlook, No Edge, no CoPilot Pop-Ups, no “LET’S FINISH GETTING YOU SET UP!”, no new buttons or icons, NO Problems.  🙂  🙂 🙂

    • in reply to: KB update issue #2644359

      From the Main Blog page, these are Susan’s recommendations:

      If you have a Windows 11 computer that won’t install KB5034765, the solution is to delete a folder called $WinREAgent, located in your C:\Drive. A thread on Reddit pointed this out as a fix for the issue, noting that the folder is hidden. Viewing hidden files is easy, as described in Microsoft’s support post View hidden files and folders in Windows. My theory is that this is connected to the BitLocker update because — as you may recall — Windows 11 has its WinRE updates included in the monthly cumulative update and not as a separate patch.

      Running sfc verifyonly found some problems.
      Try running sfc /scannow and see if it will fix the problems.

      Why Windows Update is no longer showing in my settings is a new mystery…

      There is a setting in WUMgr to hide/show Windows Update in the Settings App. Do you have it checked to hide it. If so, you can’t see it.

      Edit: I notice that WUMgr has not been updated in over three years. Is is time to let it go? Perhaps it has been disabled by changes in WU.

      There is nothing wrong with WUMgr. It works for controlling Windows Update through the latest version of Win11. There is no need/reason to uninstall it or stop using it.

      Might be good to uninstall/reinstall WUMgr, in case it is corrupted?
      (Or, if you just want the history back, do a restore and start over.)

      What website? What does the GUI say?
      Some websites require drag/drop attachments into a specified location. Some require a file to  be “attached'” which will usually bring up File Explorer and you point to the file on your computer and click “open” or “attach.”

      We need more information to try to give you a definite answer.

      Interesting. KB5034122 is the Jan. 2024-01 CU. Strange it should be installing today.

      This is from Win11 (but it is the same in Win10), running Cleanmgr as Administrator. On the “More Options” tab.

    • in reply to: Restore Points Being Deleted #2642825

      Silly questions – have you checked:

      Is System Restore turned ON? You can designate 20%, but if it’s not ON, it won’t save Restore Points.
      Also, if you run Disk Cleanup (as Administrator), there is a tab that (if I remember right) lets you clean up Restore Points and Shadow copies.

    • in reply to: How do you keep the Firefox Menu Bar always showing? #2642046

      But, let me ask: if you turn all extensions off via Help > Trouble Shoot Mode > RESTART, does your Menu Bar disappear?

      I have never had to use Trouble Shoot Mode.
      I would suggest you try to turn off the extensions one by one and restart to clear instead of using Trouble Shoot Mode. If you can do this, you may determine which extension is causing the problem or if it’s the Trouble Shoot Mode itself that is causing the problem. It would be my guess that it’s the latter (maybe setting everything “back to zero”?)

      Or use a new Private Window. You can block extensions from running in Private Windows.
