might well have just been a setting somewhere but it is best to do a clean install. If you game you may find the Core Isolation may be enabled meaning you will likely lose some gaming performance

Re: Windows 11

Looks like I need a new motherboard and CPU if I want to run Windows 11.

Re: Windows 11

I see no reason at all to rush out and use Windows 11.

W10 was bad enough (I have to suffer that on my work Laptop).

I'm happy to stay with W7 for now, its not causing me any issues.

Having upgraded my spare laptop and finding you can no longer put the taskbar up the side, I'm going to wait...


I don't really see anything in 11 which 10 doesn't have, but wouldn't want to use 7 as it's EOL.

Re: Windows 11

EOL is pretty meaningless if its running ok.

vBulletin 3.8.x has been EOL for many years, we are still running it just fine.

Well, yes. Until it has a security flaw which the vendor won't fix.

So far, so good.

A week now, and no issues.

Unless you still get the security updates via Extended Security Updates for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2. Still good until 2023.

Re: Windows 11

How to get the full right click menu back instead of hitting Shift F10 or Show More Options
1. Open Regedit by hitting the Windows key and typing regedit. Hit Enter to launch it.
2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\CLSID
3. Right-click > New > Key, and paste in this name: {86ca1aa0-34aa-4e8b-a509-50c905bae2a2}
4. With the new key you just created highlighted, again right-click > New > Key, and paste in this name: InprocServer32
5. Double-click the (Default) registry entry and then hit Enter without typing anything to set its value to blank. Before making this change, you'll see under the Data column that it says (value not set), but once you hit Enter it'll show nothing.
6. Close Registry Editor. To see your new (classic) context menu, either restart your computer or open Task Manager, scroll down to the Windows Explorer process, and right-click > End task. Then File > Run new task and type explorer.exe to restart the Windows explorer process. And there you go: context menus changed!

from what I have been able to glean on this subject it appears the thumbnail folder preview has been removed from windows 11. A reg hack may well show up at some point or M$ may well add it back if enough people complain
