Windows 11/10 best operating system - The Windows Thread

<< < (4/4)

So my mom got a new laptop so I took her old one as a bit of a project. My PS3's old SSD and 8gb of ram later it's a shockingly solid machine for what will soon be a 10 year old laptop so I kind of accidentally upgraded for dirt cheap. I was looking at getting a gaming laptop but this thing meets the minimum requirements for a decent number of games so it will keep me content long enough for next gen to roll around.

And now that next gen has come around and I have the money I'm off to an actual laptop. It cannot be overstated how nice it is to have a laptop that can match that responsive feeling you can get from a Smartphone.

I'm on a GTX 3060 with an RTX 5800 and 16 gigs of RAM on a beautiful 16:10 screen.

Also Windows 11 is nice.

I love Windows 11 for all the new features and convenience, but I don't understand why they haven't upgraded old windows from version 7 or earlier. There are also some minor system lags on my laptop, which is frustrating. And so I congratulate you on the purchase of a new laptop.

Google managed to handle seamless updates (short update , reboot, it updates quietly while you use it) but Microsoft cant find a way to achieve similar after nearly 20 years (since XP)?

I always try to find a way to stop the auto update... the system quietly reverts back to auto update, and then as soon as I leave the computer alone for a lengthy period of time, the system updates behind my back. And I always know right away because it will always go to sleep an not wake up unless I physically hit the button on the PC Case, and if even that doesn't work... that means it froze. OR I come back and it never went to sleep, and that's because it's been frozen the entire time I've been gone. Eventually it either starts working right and stops freezing 4x a day, or I just uninstall whatever the latest update is.
If it wasn't for that... Windows is just windows.
p.s. even the upgrade to Win10 was behind my back after I kept telling it NO. It did it automatically behind my back.

Yes, I agree with you, it always annoyed me that the update happens when the system wants it and not me))) I disabled them and updated once a month or even less often when I was ready for it. Although, I did not manage to disable them the first time. In Windows 10, the developers have blocked many options to block updates, but ways do exist. One of the working ones is to turn off Schedule Scan. If you disable this task, the automatic downloading of updates will stop. And to disable this task, you need to prohibit the system from reading and executing UsoClient.exe. But keep in mind that the ban is only possible with administrator rights. And everything will work if you know how to work at the command line.
