Comprehensive Windows 10 Help Site

Need Help With Windows 10?

Microsoft has set up a comprehensive Windows 10 help site covering from upgrade and activation through to step-by-step guides on a slew of important settings and options, even instructions on how to deal with common issues. I suppose it could be said that merely needing such a guide is an indication of some of the issues with Windows 10. However, I see it rather as a way to make prospective and new users more at ease with the new operating system.

The help page starts off with a list of Trending Topics, which I’m assuming will vary depending on feedback and known issues:

win10 help-trending topics

Each topic title is clickable, expanding into more related options and guides. For example; clicking on “Fix sound problems” leads to the following guide with a list of further options accessible from the left hand menu:

win10 help-fix audio

The remainder of the page provides links to guides for various Windows 10 options and settings divided into categories:

win10 help-categories

Again, clicking on a category will open up a number of related sub-menus, each one expandable and containing its own specific guide(s):

win10 help-connectivitywin10 help-cortana

Many of the step-by-step guides include additional screenshots for a better understanding, with only the more simple procedures being text only. Whether you’re contemplating upgrading or already a Windows 10 user, this is an exhaustive resource to help with just about every aspect of Windows 10, and it’s available here: Need help with Windows 10?

  1. Please tell me how to get rid of the annoying panel on the left side of your web page with icons for facebook, twitter etc – they block the text for me!

  2. I refuse to ever go back to windows 10….ever. Too may issues fr me, the whole thing was nothing short of a disaster. I don’t care if windows 7 is no longer supported, I just will not update.
    The new help web page still doesn’t address issues I had

  3. Jim, I have had an annoying problem with my browsers, especially Edge, where they were infected with some kind of virus that pops up a window in the middle of browsing either telling me I have a problem and need to call a number or trying to send me somewhere where I know I don’t want to go. I have searched the web and applied numerous scans from various anti-malware companies. It has rid the problem from my other browsers, but not Edge.
    The Microsoft help site is of NO help. I cannot find enough info on Edge to solve the problem. So my solution is never to use Edge again.

  4. Thanks mate! As always, interesting posts from you. Please keep up the windows 10 items as they really are of value.
