running windows 10 21h1 in path c:\wkindows\installer there are many many .tmp files. Can they be safely removed?


Windows10 & Accessible way to rearrange pinned Windows Taskbar items?

Gerardo Corripio
 

If you guys take a look at this video, https://youtu.be/9Vw6LIyTgXo they show how to work with the Windows Taskbar (including rearranging pinned items) something I’ve always wanted to do with Windows10 and NVDA! I WONDER IF CAN THIS BE DONE, OR NOT yet? It’s a bummer having to delete the icons and pinning them in the order one desires! Thus I got very excited of this feature!

Hi. I successfully installed the update to 21H2, but there was a false
error message about problems with the installation. The reason I say it is
false is because it only appeared for a few seconds, then the download and
installation processes completed successfully. I'm not sure what happened.
Has anyone else come across something like this?

Thanks,

Louise

Hi all,

For those who have recently joined us: the #BranchProgression hashtag is used to announce general availability of a Windows 10/11 feature update.

Windows 10 Version 21H2 (November 2021 Update/build 19044) is now available with changes to Windows 10 release schedule:

How to get the Windows 10 November 2021 Update | Windows Experience Blog

 

Key things to note:

  • You must be running Windows 10 Version 2004 (May 2020 Update/build 19041) or later to install Version 21H2 easily (Version 21H2 is an enablement package).
  • Starting from Version 21H2, Windows 10 feature updates will be released once a year.
  • Not everyone will be prompted to upgrade to Windows 10 Version 21H2 today – just like recent updates, Version 21H2 will be released in stages.
  • If you are prompted to upgrade to either Windows 10 Version 21H2 or Windows 11, it’s up to you if you wish to upgrade to Windows 11. Unlike last time, I strongly recommend everyone to install Version 21H2 as soon as it is offered to you to minimize confusion (better to install Version 21H2 and then prompted to upgrade to Windows 11 rather than stay on 21H1 and upgrade to either 21H2 or Windows 11). Speaking of Windows 11 rollout, more people using eligible devices are prompted to upgrade to Windows 11.

 

A note for WinAccess forum members: with the release of Windows 10 Version 21H2, cumulative update announcements for Version 21H1 will end in January 2022.

And with that, let the Windows 10 Version 21H2 era begin!

Cheers,

Joseph

No I haven't, but then again, I don't see anyoption for that update anywhere, only optional updates, and they only refer to Logitech drivers, which I don't need.

Hello.

 

I wouldn’t assume such a thing based on that message, no. You can always do a check of the drive though. You can check using the tool under drive properties, or run chkdsk from command line.

Re: Are you ready for Windows 10 Version 21H2 era? #branchprogression #WinTen21H2

 

Hi,

Yes, and that issue effects Windows 10 Version 2004 and later (including Windows 11, and I think, Windows Server 2022 (build 20348) as well). I say Version 2004 and later because Windows 10 Version 21H2 is essentially Version 2004 with flags for some features turned on. I'll explain the "complicated" situation, as well as the reasoning for me advising everyone to upgrade to Windows 10 21H2 as soon as possible sometime this week.

Cheers,

Joseph


Re: querry on upgrading winten20H2 to winten21H2

Hi, Sharad. When your hardware is ready for 21H2, you will find a "Download and Install" button in Check for updates. This is how you will know when Microsoft believes your computer can safely accept 21H2.
