general information on windows 10

Question

I'm new to this forum and my technical knowledge is extremely limited!

1) Does anyone know if Microsoft are going to produce a Windows 11? I have found only conflicting information on the Internet.

2) I have found lots of Windows 10 books on the Internet. Any recommendations for a good basic book on Windows 10?

Thanks for the information!

Anyone willing, or able, to suggest a good, clear, basic book?

The Visually series has always been very good for beginners. This one is called Teach Yourself Visually, but if you want something more in-depth, Windows 10: The Missing Manual by David Pogue should be good. I have not read this particular one, but I have read some of David's other Missing Manual books and they have been great.

I can suggest you Windows 10 Inside out by Ed Bott, Carl Siechert, and Craig Stinson. I think it will be very helpful and you will understand everything in depth, but its a bit expensive.

Yeah, Ed Bott is another good author. You may also want to check your local library. All of the books we referenced here may be there for free. Or at least you can thumb through them before you buy online.

      We pre-purchased and pre-installed the game Shadow of War on our gaming PC through Steam this week only to discover it would not launch when we clicked Play. I wanted to post our fix here in case anyone else searching the Web for clues to this needs help. 

      Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game (all 100gigs worth). 


      Tried rolling back the nVidia graphics driver.


      Tried cursing (made me feel better but did not fix the issue). 


      Scanned and verified the game from within Steam


      Ran sfc /scannow from the command line to make sure Windows was OK.



      I ultimately realized the issue was with Visual C++ Redistributable

      I had multiple version installed. Some we very old. I removed them all and installed Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 from here and that fixed it. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48145

      If anyone else had problems and found different solutions, let us know.
