Windows 10 November update is on its way (1511), this will only be offered to those that have already had Windows 10 installed on their computers for more than 31 Days.
If you are wanting to upgrade from Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 you can now do this allot easier as well. You have the option to upgrade direct to the 1511 update keeping all files and programs intact; OR you can now use the Windows 10 (1511) installation Media to do a Full fresh install on your current hardware using your Current Windows Serial Number (the code thats stuck to your machine). The Activation is also allot clearer, if you upgraded without the use of a serial number, it will now say “Windows 10 on this device is activated with a digital entitlement“, where as if you have used a serial number (be it 7, 8, 8.1 or 10) then it will show the serial number instead.
Including the above change there is also some updates to that may help allot of people:
1 - Find my Device - Just like the one you can use on your branded phone, you can set this up so that you can track your laptop or computer at any point. If it gets stolen or lost, you can then at least know where it was last turned on or last used.
2 - Cast (like chrome cast) - This has been updated so that you can now access this and use it allot easier to beam your photos, videos and music to compatible devices (Roku been one)
3 - App Snapping - You know you can drop the programs and folders to the side of the screen to make them “Snap“ to a corner or side, you can now do this with two or more apps and re-size them while “Snapped“ together. Very useful if you are trying to use a webpage as reference while writing up an essay.
4 - Skype - Ok I know Skype is now used allot, and people already know what it is. BUT Windows 10 Now has this integrated. So Video calling, Chatting and messaging is going to get allot easier, Cortana (the talking assistant) can also help you with this allot easier as well.
5 - Ads - Yes this is the start of the Adverts.. They will show up as part of the start menu. But you can turn them off - You can disable these ads, if you like. Visit Settings > Personalization > Start and disable the “Occasionally show suggestions in Start” option.
6 - Coloured Task Bar - Its Finally Back. The top of your folders and programs will now allow you to colour them differently from the main “charm“ area, so your not stuck trying to move the window while clicking on the wrong section.
I hope this helps Some people.
Thank you for reading.
Just an update as to the situation with the 00DJ and 00VJ services that is offered.
I (Steve) am no longer working directly for Kim-UK, however I am still providing the services for the 00 systems through them.
All hardware spares are held by Kim-UK, with repairs been shipped to the shop for myself to process at a weekend. I know this puts a big delay on any repairs, but it will be the only way that it can be done around work and home life. Spare parts for the 00DJ Systems are getting VERY thin on the ground, but some are still obtainable. The 00VJ spares are still holding firm, with plenty of aesthetic parts available, so do not let your machine look scruffy..
As for phone calls and advice please still keep contacting the wonderful staff at Kim-UK, but info will be taken and passed onto myself. Since I am doing all the calls in my spare time after working hours, and due to high demand for Advice I may be implementing a fee structure. This is to help prevent it from effecting Work and home life too much. Any fees paid within a set time will be deducted from any labor charge if hardware repair is required.
I hope that this is fair for all that still need my services.
