    And then, for the explorers and adventurers:

    A Stripped down Win 11, sans the Orwellian crap:

    but then, some cautions:

    and there seems to be a version for Win 10:

    As said in one of the above forums, and shown in the video at top, I think a VM may be the way to go for this.

    Microsoft confirms Windows 11 22H2 breaks Windows Hello.

    In today's episode of "What Windows 11 22H2 breaks this time",🤭
    we have the broken Windows Hello authentication system.
    According to the latest update from the software giant, users could experience problems with Windows Hello sign-in methods, such as face recognition, fingerprint, or regular PIN.

  6. I bought this Windows 11 mini desktop PC:

    https://www.amazon.ca/Beelink-Mini-Computer-Bluetooth-Ethernet/dp/B0B3MQRLKX/ref=sr_1_...05&sr=1-4&th=1

    I also bought this wireless keyboard with trackpad:

    https://www.amazon.ca/Logitech-Wireless-Touch-Keyboard-920-007119/dp/B014EUQOGK/ref=pd...014EUQOGK&th=1

    So far I am not finding Windows 11 as bad as I feared it would be. I do a few things I need to sort out to get more functionality out of it. I disabled Microsoft Teams and signed out of that Widget thing on the side. I am going to launch a topic to to hopefully get some advice on some specific things. I haven't taxed the machine much yet but I do want to see what it can do.

    Covered previously in this thread, but

    &
    https://github.com/Open-Shell/Open-Shell-Menu

    both proved very desirable for 10. I don't see where support for 11 is mentioned anywhere, but if they are still applicable, I'd say get and use them.

    Thank you for your advice. I will give some thought to those programs. Actually there are some things I like about Windows 11. Of course Windows 7 is my comfort zone. I am interested in stopping Microsoft Windows from monitoring and logging what I do. So these programs you suggested may prove very useful.

  9. It is good thing I have the Windows 11 mini desktop computer. I just updated Chrome on my Windows 7 desktop computer and I got a message saying that this would be the last update as they are not supporting Windows 7 anymore when it comes to updates for their browser.

    I saw "Windows 11 22H2" as the only Windows Update I don't have and after seeing the post about it above I selected "pause updates for five weeks". The Windows 11 machine is so quick it is hard to keep up with what it is doing.

    I used to be a regular reader of the "Ask Woody" column, where he issued warnings about which updates wrought what havoc. This was being proactive, for any machines under my care. Then I would often pause accordingly, as you said. But 7 gave way to 10, and our ability to decline or delay specific updates became seriously limited. You also needed to have non-base-level Win editions. The top "Enterprise" level, and in particular the "Long Term Release Schedule" editions (or whatever the right nomenclature for that is . . . ) retained the most in update-rejection-options or stability status. My expectation is that erosion of user choices only increases under Win 11.

  12. The USB 3.0 speed is nice. It was a nice bonus to have USB 3.0 slots on this mini desktop computer. I glad there is information that the posters here have been kind enough to let us know about to try to avoid these troublesome Windows updates that sometimes cause more harm then they are worth. It is nice that they try to remedy the situation but with the money Microsoft has why can't they thoroughly test such updates before they are released. Their consumer's devices should not be guinea pigs.
