The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your
kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming
questions and please don't post ads.
1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions. Or if you must, use the Back Room[^] - but enter at your own risk.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen. For those discussions where you wish to be a little more frank, use the Soapbox[^]
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.
My latest annoyance with windows 10 is I have killed the calculator. I had brought it up and it was in programmer mode. I did a couple of calculations and then needed a function that wasn't available so I wanted to switch it to scientific mode. I clicked the "Scientific" label and it crashed. Now every time I call it up I see a blank window for about two seconds and then it goes away. I can't get it back. It's all done.
I'm at work now so my dogs aren't around to get scared like last time and my co-workers are already convinced I have Tourette's syndrome.
That's life for me with windows 10. I despise the user interface and it keeps doing stupid things and on and on...
I did and it couldn't find anything beyond the class-type stuff. I didn't find configuration settings anywhere. I would think there are some somewhere because it does "remember" things but I couldn't find where they are kept.
This is likely a Win Core issue. I saw this once upon a time. To test the theory, open any UWP app (i.e. something from the Windows Store). In fact, Windows Store itself may fail to load for you. There is a simple reset command you can run on the Windows Store to correct it:
Analogy: So he has to blow up and rebuild Macy's to fix a wobbly leg on his table?
To reset the calculator to the default display because Win10 is so Improved and Robust he has to do something completely unrelated to the calculator when it breaks doing something incredibly simple that it is supposed to be able to do? Wow! Lucky this O/S is less than a decade old or it might be in danger of just working.
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
You'll be thrilled with this video from Build 2017 then. They spent nearly an hour explaining all the visual effects that have gone into some upcoming version of calc.exe. I'm almost not kidding. That's almost an hour of my life I'll never get back.
You know you've dropped the ball somewhere along the way when you have to spend that much time explaining visual effects that are so subtle, people wouldn't have noticed them otherwise.
Back on the topic at hand: Just grab calc.exe from Windows 7. Or XP. Or 95.
Back, shortly after Windows 10 just came out, I had a similar issue with the weather icon. It just did not work, and nothing I did seemed to make any difference. In the end I re-imaged the systems drive with an image taken when the weather app did work. I always keep a fairly recent image around, just in case I need it in situations like these, and for other situations where you may want to re-mage.
Unfortunately I have installed so much stuff this past week an image wouldn't help me very much. I would have to spend about an entire day installing everything and that's not worth it for the calculator. I'll have to use the one on my phone until I can resurrect the other one.
But in case of Switzerland: The "owner" of the WIFI- Network is responsible what happens on his net... means if somebody uses your unsecured network for iligeal things you (the Network owner) is responsible for that. So I think I helped more than I violate. ?
Not to speak about, what Youngsters can join, what they can't at home
