Windows 10 is the latest operating system by Microsoft. Most of the People is trying to install it and many of them are very happy with windows 10. Windows 10 has become the popular operating system now a days this is because of the new features like improved Start Menu, Cortana,Microsoft edge, New media players, notification bar, etc Which makes it more user-friendly as well as a solution for a big disaster that was Windows 8.

There are some people who are downgrading to Windows 7 and 8 and are saying windows 7 was better that is because they are facing some bugs in this operating system. I have also found some problems in Windows 10 by which i was also disappointed. We has gathered many problems here and have given solution for them below
People are getting a lot of errors and issues which are simply not acceptable to anyone. Though,
Microsoft is releasing new updates whenever they encounter any error.

Here Are some Issues and how to Fix them

1. Windows Asking For Activation Key For Free Upgrade

Windows 10 is asking for activation key which is Not required for for free upgrade which is really annoying. There’s really nothing a user can do to fix it but Microsoft said this issue will usually resolve itself after a few minutes.

2. I can’t play my favorite games in windows 10
It is found that many gamers are having troubles related to their favorite games. Some games can’t be installed, some games are installed but showing errors, games are opening but the only blank screen is showing, a mouse is not working while playing games in windows 10, a keyboard is not working, etc.
The solution of this problem is:
1. Install latest graphic Drivers and Directx.
2. Run drivers in Compatibility mode.
  • Right click on the Setup file of the Driver and select Properties.
  • Select Compatibility Tab.
  • Place a check mark next to Run this program in Compatibility mode and select the operating system accordingly from the drop down list.
  • Click OK and run the setup.
3. Launch game in Compatibility Mode.
  • Right click on the Setup file of the Driver and select Properties.
  • Select Compatibility Tab.
  • Place a check mark next to Run this program in Compatibility mode.

3. Battery Draining Too Quickly

Those of you on portable devices that upgraded to Windows 10 at launch may have found that the new operating system took a hefty toll on your battery life. Intel and Microsoft solved this together, so make sure your drivers are up-to-date and you should find it resolved.
If not, you might want to turn attention to some of Windows 10’s new features. Though Cortana, the virtual assistant, can come in very handy, she does impact the battery slightly. If you want to reserve all the power you can, do a system search for Cortana, select the relevant result, then switch Let Cortana respond to Hey Cortana to Off.

4. Default App Choices Have Changed

Did you upgrade to Windows 10 and find that your images weren’t opening in your favorite app anymore? Or that your browser had defaulted to Microsoft Edge? For whatever reason, Windows 10 isn’t good at remembering what programs you’d chosen to open specific file types. Though it’s a pain to reconfigure them all, it’s easy to change your default apps

5. Wi-Fi Connection Not Discoverable

If your system is no longer detecting your Wi-Fi connection, this is likely due to VPN software that you have installed. It can also impact some Ethernet connections. Your first port of call would be to go to your VPN software’s website and update to the latest version, one compatible with Windows 10, as this might solve the issue.
If this doesn’t work, open an administrative Command Prompt by pressing Windows Key + X and selecting Command Prompt (Admin). Then input the following two lines, pressing Enter after each:
reg delete HKCR\CLSID\{988248f3-a1ad-49bf-9170-676cbbc36ba3} /f

netcfg -v -u dni_dne
If this doesn’t work, the issue might be driver related, rather than VPN. For this, system search device manager and select the relevant result. In the new window, expand Network adapters. Then right-click your wireless adapter and select Update Driver Software

6. Touchpad problems in windows 10

Many users are having issues with laptop’s trackpad since upgrading to Windows 10. To solve this problem, you can try
1. Uninstall and Reinstall driver
  • Open device manager and select Mice and other pointing devices.
  • Right click on uninstall the driver .
  • In device manager menu click on scan for hardware changes
  • Also, check if there are any newer drivers available, or coming soon.
2. Adjusting Windows 10’s touchpad settings.
  • Open Start, type ‘touch’ and hit enter.
  • You can change the delay, and make further tweaks by clicking ‘Additional mouse options’.

7.Turn off forced updates

If you're anything like us, you set up previous Windows releases so that they wouldn't install updates automatically - one forced reboot is one too many. To be fair to Microsoft, Windows 10 handles post-update reboots much more elegantly, but we'd still rather be in control from the outset.
There is a workaround for users running Windows 10 Pro: from the Start Menu, search for 'gpedit' and run the Group Policy Editor. Expand Computer Configuration in the left-hand pane, and navigate to Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Update. Double-click Configure Automatic Updates in the list, select the Enabled radio button, and in the left-hand box select 2 - Notify for download and notify for install. Now click OK, and you'll be notified whenever there are updates - unfortunately, they'll be a daily irritation if you're using Windows Defender.
