Windows 10 nonsense

Postby watkins » Sun Aug 09, 2015 10:48 am

As there are more tech-savvy people on here than in the real world, I figured I would ask you lot.

I "upgraded" to Windows 10 last night for sh*ts. Played with settings and Im mostly OK with it all. One big problem remains though. I am a consummate center clicker. I use that like its going out of style. New tab here, new tab there. But now for some reason its a shortcut to open Cortana. I dont want that garbage opening ever. How the hell do I disable the mouse shortcut? I cant find Cortana settings for that anywhere.

Mine's not doing it, but a search finds a thread on reddit that indicates there should be settings in Settings --> Devices --> Mouse and Touchpad --> Additional dealing with the middle click functionality.

The options unfortunately are to have middle click enabled or not. I need it on.

So I just disabled it and turned it back on. Oddly that seems to have solved the issue. Completely illogical.

I signed up for the upgrade and it immediately started to download it. I told it "heck naw!" and put that download on hold. I'm waiting for a month or two so a few patches can be rolled out.

Windows 7 forever. Swear I'll never upgrade. You can't turn off the privacy invasion completely, they track your data and usage, track programs and hardware you have installed (and can prevent you from installing certain things), can push ads to the start menu and w/e, it just isn't worth it. Its being pushed because of enhanced DRM which I don't agree with either. Part of what lead me to standard transmissions is me being a control freak, and I'm sorry but Windows 10 is the wrong direction, like they're trying to make it like OSX. I don't need more automation and **** getting in my way.

Yo dawg, once you get it installed, just don't plug it in to the internet if you're that paranoid. It can't send any data if it's not connected to anything. And don't forget the tin foil hat.

You gave up your privates a long time before Windows 10 came along.
