Windows 10 Start Menu and Action Center Won't Open

Jul
17



If your Windows 10 PC or Laptop won't open the Start Menu or the Action Center when you click on them, usually a reboot will fix it. But who wants to shut down all programs, close all their files and wait for a reboot? No one.

Microsoft has still not fixed this issue. It's been listed as a priority issue on support forums for a year now.

There is a way for a quick fix without shutting down or rebooting.

Steps to fix the issue:

Dear Microsoft Support ....

Jul
17

Dear Microsoft Support. Thanks for taking my call about my Windows 10 issue. But, let us be honest and clear about my Windows issues. I did not call you unprepared. Yes, I've rebooted my PC. Yes, all hotfixes and updates are installed. Actually, my problem arose after I installed the latest hotfixes. Oh, wait, no I did not install them, you did, automatically, without my input. So yes, this is your fault and please stop asking me to reboot and if I have installed updates. Can I please talk to a real Microsoft engineer and not someone in a 3rd party and foreign call center?

Attending Citrix XenMobile 10.x Virtual Instructor Training

Jun
27

Another virtual class is underway. This time I am taking the Ingram Micro sponsored "Citrix - Deploying Enterprise Mobility Solutions with Citrix XenMobile - CXM-303" online, virtual instructor led class. Students are in all US time zones, yet we are taking the same class at the same time. Citrix's GoToMeeting and GoToTraining are awesome products. I plan to take the XenMobile certification exam next week. That gives me all Citrix certifications under my belt. Honestly, I haven't seem much adoption of XenMobile (or other MDM, MAM, EMM) in the SMB space.

Conference Badge Zip Line - What?

Jun
18

Every year I attend a multitude of I.T. conferences attributed to the top tier hardware and software vendors such as Citrix, Microsoft, VMware and more. ... and every one of them gives you a badge to wear. One with your picture, another with a RFID chip in it so every vendor attending can scan your badge to place you on their email list. Truthfully, these conferences are all the same and they are getting lame. Time for a new format, are you listening dear vendors? Anyway, that's another story. Back to the badge dilemma.

Ten Commandments for Stress Free Programming (Shared)

Jun
09

Too funny not to share. Not sure who the original author was.

Ten Commandments for Stress Free Programming

1. Thou shalt not worry about bugs. Bugs in your software are actually special features.

2. Thou shalt not fix abort conditions. Your user has a better chance of winning state lottery than getting the same abort again.

3. Thou shalt not handle errors. Error handing was meant for error prone people, neither you or your users are error prone.

Just Started Using Twitter Ads For Business To Drive New Business

Jun
07

I have used click advertising before with Google, Yahoo, Microsoft and other search engines. It's hit or miss. No pun intended.

Years ago, when I was selling after market toner and inkjet cartridges, and even a book on bankruptcy called "The Credit Secrets Bible", I was spending thousands of dollars on click advertising a month - and it worked well. Until the big box stores got involved and were outbidding my click budget and were selling the product cheaper than I could purchase at wholesale. Thanks Walmart!

Cost Effective Thin Client That Is Enterprise Ready For $89? Yes!

Jun
07

Not cheap, but low cost, is how Citrix describes their new HDX Ready Pi device. List price is a measly $89 but you get something that is astounding. A enterprise ready thin client with full capabilities due to Citrix integrating their HDX SoC (Software on Chip) directly into the hardware. No longer reliant on just software such as the Citrix Receiver installed package, the HDX Ready Pi device comes with high performance software pre-installed on a computer chip on the actual device's circuit board. Included are a separate GPU and a Quad Core ARM processor.
