AM I ALONE IN THINKING THAT WINDOWS 10 IS OUT OF CONTROL? IT LOOKS TO ME THAT IT IS LIKE WHAT I HAVE HEARD ABOUT VISTA WHEN IT CAME OUT. LUCKILY I MISSED VISTA AND WENT STRAIGHT FROM XP TO 7! NOW I AM IN WINDOWS 10, I AM COMPLETELY LOST AND AM GETTING DEEPER AND DEEPER INTO THE BROWN STUFF!! MY ORIGINAL QUESTION: HOW DO I GET MY SCANNER ICON BACK FROM ITS POSITION IN THE TASK BAR? IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS ALL I HAD TO DO WAS A SYSTEM RESTORE, BUT THAT FACILITY SEEMS TO BE EITHER LOST, OR HIDDEN SOMEWHERE BY MICROSOFT. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE SORT ME OUT IN LANGUAGE FREE OF JARGON AND ABBREVIATIONS. I HAVE ALREADY ASKED THE FORUM TO HELP ME FIND MY SYSTEM RESTORE, BUT GOT NO RESPONSE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. B.
Hello all. Firstly, sorry for shouting! No joy so far, but will continue to work on it tomorrow. Can, hopefully, help Wee Eddie: On my computer, which to me seems to differ from everybody elses, the Search Box is bottom left corner of screen at the end of the Task Bar - good luck. B
In Windows 10 the search box is on the task bar next to start. On the task bar click on search the web and windows or the magnifying glass if you have changed it to an icon and type in what you are looking for.
Thank you Govan1x and others. I got as far as System Properties and found that all 3 drive protections were Off. Three boxes were greyed out: System restore, Create and Apply. However, when I tried to configure the drives, no way, that I could fathom, would they turn on. FYI the other day somewhere, I found that I had one restore point for about a month ago and I have used System restore in living memory. Thanks again. B.
