I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi and welcome to windows central forum.
Jio apps are not available on windows phone yet. You could activate the sim on a separate device and then switch your device and use the jio card in 640xl.

Can you pair a Bluetooth mouse with a Lumia 640XL? I use remote desktop and TeamViewer quite a bit. I'd like to be able to pair a mouse with my phone and mirror it to my tv. Sort of a poor mans continuum. Will that work? And if so, how do you do it? I have a Bluetooth mouse but I can't get any device to recognize it without the dongle that came with it. Do I need a special kind of mouse? I really appreciate the help.

I bought a phone lumia 640xl over a year ago that is only 3g enable phone and the price was 15k (india) . And now Microsoft launch same model with a another version named it "640xl lte" with same price tag. So why you people play game with us? Why not you people provide same thing at same price?
Also is there any option to avail this ? I update my phone. But not found any 4g option..pls help.

Hi everyone!
I need some help from you guys... I have a Lumia 640XL (W10).
Recently, i tried to turn my phone on, and the bitlock message appeared, and i can't get rid of it.
The problem is i can't solve it via USB recovery tool because the USB port is not working for some reason, it is probably broken.
The question is: Can i factory reset it somehow without USB ?

Front camera on my Lumia 640XL is not working. I thought it is just bug, because I've noticed it like two months ago, few days after anniversary update rolled out. I hoped that next updates will make it work again, but problem persisted so I've tried hard reset. No success.
When I try to switch between rear and front camera it will freeze on black screen, I can only see buttons for take photo, settings, etc. It doesn't work in any app - standard Camera app, Skype, Messenger - black screen everywhere.
Is there something else I can try or is it definitely hw problem and the fact it happend after AU is just coincidence?

you require minimum 2gb of internal phone memory in order to successfully update to anniversary update.

If you can manage a hard reset and fresh start with your phone , i would suggest you to upgrade to windows 10 because upgrading to windows 10 should always be followed by a hard reset to counter and fix any glitch arisen due to the upgrade and if you cant then stick with 8.1.

Hi all,
I recently bought Surface 3 and would like to install only apps from the Windows store. I really believe the UWP is the way forward.
I think Microsoft should provide a tool to work on this file type since it is created by a Lumia smartphone.
However, I am struggling to find an app that can edit/ convert DNG files created from my Lumia smartphone. I downloaded Photoscape X Pro but it is showing error while showing thumbnail of the DNG file and the app just crashed.
So, which apps are you guys using for this kind of activity. I knew Adobe products would be the one to go but it is not there in the store yet; so it is out of question for now.

I soft resetted, 3 times then did a factory reset twice, first with back-up, the second time with clean slate. Reinstalling twice, with each soft and factory reset...

-I'd never looked in the battery saving option before, but it does not have the run in background slider that facebook does.

I have two Lumia's: 925 and 625.
Since we try to have as less radiation as possible (if possible at all, but I don't want to go into that discussion) around the house we switch our phones to airplane mode as much as possible. Off course also at nights.
Now, I discovered with a special measuring device, which is able to measure all kinds off radiation) that these lumia's frequently send a signal even when it is on airplane mode (with Wifi, NFC, BT off). The strangest thing is even that this is NOT occurring when the phone is normally on, but only when the lock-screen is active. (with or without Glance where applicable)
I notice a peek in send-signal every 5 seconds. I tried playing around with several settings but the devices keep doing this..
Is anybody familiar with this?

Please give the call recording feature on my Lumia 535 by update or application. just please give this important feature. That's just one think is missed in anniversary windows 10 update. I was thought that feature is also going to be include in update but their is not provided that's very worst think. I hope you will try to give this feature in upcoming next update. Just let me know is this feature is coming or not?

A:when the call recording feature is given in lumia update(e.g.lumia 535)?

Welcome to Windows Central! We are a Windows products fan site and not an official Microsoft website so any complaints or ideas you post here will not reach Microsoft.
You have a Lumia 535 so the chances of getting the call recording feature are slim. According to the latest news, only phones that shipped with Windows 10 Mobile preinstalled (so in other words; when you booted up the phone it started with a version of windows 10) will get that feature.
All other phones (those that came with windows 8 or 8.1) will probably not see this feature. It also depends on hardware according to Microsoft.

Hi all, please help, my wife's 640xl has gone into a bricked state upon switch on. I've hard reset the phone successfully but the screen is stuck on the first display and I can't select any operations as the screen is not responding. I'm going to hard reset again to see if it remedies the issue, but I'm not very positive as I've been struggling with this phone for weeks on end now. Also, it seems to not charge at all, it remains in low battery even with charging it for a full day. It also gave me a notification a few times where it said that the phone got to hot and switched off.
Any help on this???

A:Bricked 640xl

after reading the last segment , i suggest you to manually remove your battery and check for any bumps or irregularities as such notifications and quick drain of charge points towards malfunction of the battery rather than any software issue.
Unless your device is able to hold enough charge to go through the hard reset you will always find your device to be bricked as it would shut down/reboot in the middle of the process..

I have the non xl Lumia 640 and the battery is a beast. If you can do without Zeiss optics I'd give you this 3rd option. Also to my knowledge the 650 cannot capture 1080p video cause of the snapdragon 2** series but I think that the performance deference of the 650 and 640(xl) is not noticeable. Edit: The 650 has an oled screen while the 640xl has ips, judging from my phone if you want a screen visible under the sun the 640 is a no go.

Newly installed apps. ot appearing in program menu unable to pin apps to start menu.

This happened to me previously and I could find no solution....I eventually created a new admin profile, where newly installed apps appeared in the program menu and I could pin apps tomthe start menu feom a desktopmshortxut etc.

I copied over my video docs pictures and music folders to the new profile. Now a few months later the same thing is happening again. I have created a new admin profile and it all,works fine there. I have searched on the internet and others have the same issue, but of course anything you search for always finds someone else with the same issue...

Hopefully someone can help me with this very annoying problem

UPDATE
actually resolved the issue....I turned on windows update and did a massive update, the start menu looks a little different, maybe a different font, pinned items can only be mace smaller or bigger, used to be an option for long ( didnt use this anyway ) but new apps now showing and pin to start menu works.....so MS fixed it, there is some advantage to updating, have backed up with true image and turned off updating, will back up again before updating next time......the update didnt like GPU-Z and temoved it plus a few other apps and turned defender back on i think.......shutup-10 sorted all this out.....

Ok, so literally nothing was working - I did a "Repair Install" using my windows 7 cd. It took 2 hours, but when it finished up all of my networking was working So, for those of you who are having similar issues, as a last resort I'd give that a shot. Definitely read a few articles about what is required to successfully perform a Repair Install, as you don't want anything going wrong during that process.

I never tried sysprepping 10 but i have faced similar issues with 8.1. Turned out that you need to save the default app associations to an XML file using DISM (before Generalizing the image ) and later import it.

Export or Import Default Application Associations

Configure, export, import App File Associations in Windows 8.1

I have used "Setupcomplete.cmd" to auto import the app associations during the last face of install.

Add a Custom Script to Windows Setup
You may also need to disable the new app notification before generalizing the image.

A:Use Metro Apps As Admin AND Be Able To Sync, d/l Store apps, etc???

Hello Stephen, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Setting that security policy below to be enabled will basically just turn the built-in elevated "Administrator" account into an unelevated administator account that requires UAC approval to open or run anything that requires elevated rights to do so.

This would be why you are able to open the Store afterwards, but you would still need to sign into the Store with any Microsoft account to be able to install any "Metro" Store apps.
Windows Store - Sign in with Different Microsoft Account in Windows 8

You still will not be able to switch the built-in "Administrator" to be a Microsoft account. It can only remain as a local account.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

You of course need an email address (Microsoft Account) but it will only be used for the app in question (Windows Store is also just an app), so in the next dialog either give an existing Microsoft Account credentials or select Sign up for a Microsoft account to create a new one to be used with Store app:

Your Windows sign in account will remain local, it will not be converted to a Microsoft Account.

Hello all,

I am new here, although I did come here quite a few times and many times found the solution :-)

My problem is (I am on 1511) that some icons of removed (by powershell) apps reapeared, and there seem to be no way to get rid of them. Nothing I have found had worked (like going to start menu folder and deleting the shorcuts).

Namely it's MicrosoftWindowsAlarms, MicrosoftZuneMusic, MicrosoftWindowsPhotos, and in Apps the name looks like this: @{Microsoft.WindowsAlarms_10.1607.1991.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwems-resource--Microsoft.WindowsAlarms-Resources-AppName-Text}

Moreover, few days ago some "new" apps have materialized - that was a shock........no update, nothing, out of blue I had about 10 unwanted apps in my all apps...............crazy.

Any thoughts?

P.S. Normally I deffer updates by turning the service off and/or metered connection. Now I have left it on by mistake...........still should not install against my will some unwanted apps..........and as I said, no update.....

A:Icons of uninstalled apps showing in All apps

Those left-over icons may be a result of deleting programs instead of using Control Panel, Programs and Features to uninstall the programs. When a program is installed the install routine puts the program files in either C:\Program Files [32-bit] or C:\Program Files for 64-bit or C:\Program Files (x86) for 32-bit depending upon which version of the OS is in use. It will also create the icons, write support files to C:\Windows or other Folders and create Registry entries so Windows knows how to run the program. The uninstall routine is supposed to get rid of everything associated, don't know if PowerShell can do it as cleanly.

I was using Windows 10 build 10316 normally until I use the Razer Game Booster.
After that, All Applications List in the start menu no longer shows any application...

I uninstalled the program but the problem persists.

Now, I update to build 10328 and nothing changes!

Any help?

So I just found out that i can't pin left in the start menu anymore.

Now that i'm done complaining. How do i organize my "All Apps" Menu.

Calculator, Contact, Mail, Cortana, etc ALL of this garbage bloatware is something i just want to create a folder called Microsoft Bloat and put it in there. How do i do this?

First time around, i uninstalled all of it using power shell but i ended up needing the store and one other app but W10 went retarded and didn't allow me to reinstall the packages, so this time around. I just want to organize them into a folder that i will never touch

I really hope someone can help me do this, i don't feel like downgrading back to 8.1 which as it stands right now was better for me when using Start8.

I don't believe you can do that. The apps are being organized in alphabetical order and I don't think you can take some of them out and put into a folder.

You don't have to uninstall all of them.

Hi, My name is Roy, ive searched all the other forum threads in this topic and i couldn't find what i was looking for.

Now, my problem is that my Windows 8 apps wont update and i cant install new apps. ive had this problem before, but i forgot how to solve it. I remember it had something to do with a folder not being in the C:/windows folder. I also remember it began with a "A" (Appinstaller?).

i was wondering if anyone who CAN install their apps and update them could look into their C:/Windows folder and write down a list of folders that appear starting with the letter "A".

Thanks in advanced!

A:Updates to Window 8 Apps and Installation of Apps

Hello Roy, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Usually when you have issues with installing or updated apps from the Store, you would need to clear the Store cache to fix it.

If that doesn't help, then double check through the troubleshooting steps in the tutorial below to see if one may be the issue.

Hello, and thank you for being included in the forum.
I am trying to learn Windows 8. I have weeded out a few apps from the Start screen by right clicking and then clicking Uninstall. The apps in question disappeared from the Start screen, however, they remain in the apps folder. How do I complete a total uninstall?
Regards,

Hi! Welcome to SevenForums!

Have you tried locking the taskbar? Try it.

If that doesn't work, right click the taskbar and click properties. [See Screenshot Called Properties]

Then under Notification Area click Customize. [See Screenshot called Customize]

Then tick the box at the bottom and click apply. [See Screenshot called Notification Area.]

Try that and report back!

Have the apps being developed for W10M improved in quality or features compared with the old 8.1 apps? Or have they become worse?
I remember reading that Uber in W10M is worse compared with WP8.1 but the instagram app in W10M is better
What are your thoughts? Please state which app or apps you're basing your conclusions on

I am experiencing the following very strange intermittent problems and evil behavior in XP.

My Start Menu sometimes only appears for a split second when clicked and will not stay displayed. Also minimised apps. wont maximise and apps. and short cuts on the desktop wont launch when double left clicked and instead show properties as if they were right clicked!!

I have done the following to try and resolve these issues.

1. Updated from SP1 to SP 2 as well as all the security updates.

2. Ran Adaware and Spybot to find any unwelcome visitors. Adaware only found one minor issue.

3. Ran Symantec Antivirus which found and quarantined several viruses.

4. Ran WinDoctor which found and said it resolved quite a few issues.

This is really a pain as it makes the system virtually unusable except for when it is behaving which is rare.

Would be grateful for any suggestions, solutions, incantations or workarounds for this issue/s

Kind regards

I save almost everything into Dropbox. When I try and attach an file to an email through the Chrome app (non-desktop version), the Dropbox app (not the programme on running on my desktop) will not allow me to select the files to add. I think this is because the Dropbox app is essentially the same as the website and I would have to download the item first. This wouldn't be a huge problem if I was able to get at the document some other way but I get stuck!

I can attach the document if I switch back to the Chrome desktop app, but I am not sure how I managed to make this change the first time!

Does anyone have any ideas about how to switch from between app modes? Thanks in advance
