It’s okay if I never update Windows 10.

H. I have a 2015 Dell laptop with a 32GB hard drive running the original 2015 Win 10 Home. I have never been able to update Windows 10 due to insufficient disk space. I only have 5 gigabytes of free disk space, whatever I do. I tried to clean the disk, deleted the unused programs, but I still see only a marginal improvement in disk space.

While the device was still under warranty, I spoke to Dell Support about this issue. They said they were just living with it, which is not a big deal. Do you have a solution to this problem? Or do I just have to be content with the status quo? The laptop works reasonably well, և I do not want to create a problem միջոցով to be dismantled by a non-working computer.

aI’m afraid it’s a big deal. If you can not update Windows, you will not get any security fixes, your computer is vulnerable. So I was going to put in a fast external hard drive (SSD) եցի I moved as much of your data to that drive as needed to free up the 20 gigabytes needed to install the 64-bit version of Windows 10. will only release 16 gigabytes if you install the 32-bit version 🙂

H. I have an HP desktop computer running Windows 10. I mainly use Microsoft Edge browser. About a month ago, when I put my computer to sleep, it would go to sleep but wake up in a few minutes. I have a friend who has the same problem with his laptop. It may start after one of the Microsoft Windows updates.

A: There are many possible reasons for your computer to exit your mode.

The first thing to do is check what Windows has woken up to. Start scrolling down the menu և the Windows system folder. Right-click on that command prompt in that folder, then select More / Run as Administrator. Finally, in the command prompt that appears, type powercfg -lastwake.

Of course, what you do next depends on what Windows reports. It could be a malicious device, a network adapter, or even malware.

H. Wow, last night I watched Netflix’s “Our Social Dilemma” show. It was shocking. I hope all social media users are watching this app, especially parents who allow their children to use social media. I immediately deleted my Facebook account, but I want to keep accessing the internet. I’ve been a solid Chrome user for years, but no more. Can you guide me when choosing a browser that does not track և does not sell my browser data և better protect my privacy?

A: Mostly for its privacy features, the browser I use most often is Mozilla Firefox. But it’s not just the browser you want to look at. If you use Firefox but use Google as your search engine, you are still discovering a lot of personal information. That’s why I use DuckDuckGo as my primary search engine.
