Wallpaper of the Week: Norway Aurora Borealis

This week’s wallpaper shows off the Aurora Borealis shimmering over a lake surrounded by snowy mountains in Norway. The colors of the northern lights are reflected in the water of the lake, deep greens and blues contrast with the lighter colors of the luminous lights above. The sharply focused black faces of the mountains contrast with areas of snowy white. This stunning background works with icons very well. If you’re in the northern latitudes of the planet that experience winter, here’s a little color to go with the cold.  Read More

PCs Running the Windows 10 October Update Haven’t Received Critical Fixes

If you installed Windows 10 version 1809 in the first week after its October 2nd release, you haven’t received critical updates.

Microsoft has released cumulative updates that fixed several issues with the October 2018 feature upgrade, but if you checked for updates, downloaded and installed Windows 10 build 1809 in the first week it was released (through October 6th), you’re not getting those updates. October 6th is the day Microsoft halted the release.

There isn’t a good fix for this at the moment. If you want to get the cumulative updates, you can join the Windows Insider program and install the Slow or Release Preview Ring on your system. If you like to tinker with new builds this is a good route to go. For the rest of of us, the better option is to wait until the October 2018 (build 1809) re-starts delivery. No word from Microsoft yet on when they plan to re-start delivery for this build.

Microsoft says that only a small percentage of users have had issues with the initial release. If you downloaded and installed the upgrade and aren’t having problems you should be ok, but aren’t receiving the cumulative updates.
