Re: Running CD disc's on WIN 10 ?


Heard about vulnerabilities in VLC lately through my nephew. Not a big problem he said, but was advised to keep the program updated and be careful of opening files with it.

Re: Running CD disc's on WIN 10 ?


True, old VLC had security issues. Keep up to date.

Anyone wanting to know where their .jpg files are should search each drive letter for *.jpg or *.jpeg.

It is true in Windows that when you 'delete' something, it is only marked for deletion and then resides in the recycle bin. It tells the computer 'if you need this space where these photos reside, user says they're no longer needed, so overwrite the space with new content.' It will recycle the space. If you want to truly delete your recycle bin, usually there's an icon on desktop to do that. To emphasize another way, when you open a pre-existing document, change anything at all and resave the document, what really happens is a completely new document is saved with the same name and the old document goes to the recycle bin with same name but also a marker that says 'I'm obsolete. Take my space if you need to.'

Anyone wanting to relate/change certain file associations to a specific program can do so. God mode above is easiest way. Look under default programs section.

Re: Running CD disc's on WIN 10 ?


To diyorpay,

So even though I emptied my recycle bin as in the screenshot, and my recycle page after around 20 "empties" was finally blank. Yet,my 12K pics still stayed in my PC somewhere ? Because I deleted all 12 K of them from both Photo Gallery and my Pictures file also.

And the instant that I reloaded Photo Gallery, WIN10 started loading all 12K of my pics back in to PG on my PC ...in chronological order.

Although I have One Drive disabled on my PC, does MS WIN 10 still put our deleted pics and docs in the "cloud" even though we users are not choosing to allow it being done ?

So if MS does not "cloud" me, then what option do I use in the god control that I have on my desk top now, to change my PC's deletions from being saved... so stealth like ?.

My apologies in advance to you DIY, for my PC illiteracy and many questions. And also, I have deleted VLC on my PC as it seemed like it was trying to boldly take over the opening of every file in my PC, that I clicked on.

Thanks,

Next time try right clicking on Recycle Bin, then Open to display what would be deleted.

Can't say why your photos reappeared other than that many programs save your self created content and delete only the program itself. I believe if one created many Word documents but deleted MS Office from their computer, the MS Office program would no longer function but the Word documents would remain until they were individually deleted. Remnants of MS Office would remain throughout the computer and its registry because MS assumes you may want to reinstall at some point.

A favorite beloved oldie "Delete" program is Revo Uninstaller. Even the free version lets user search for related fragments related to a program that was just deleted. Users of the free version are very pleased that VS Revo Group has now included ability to easily delete Windows Apps (but once gone, hard to get back; but we all know the ones we hate).
