WARNING: Windows 10 will randomly delete files without your knowledge or permission due to a defect.
In my opinion, computers are barely improving in the responsiveness of the user interface. I have been suffering under the tyranny of inadequate microchips sold by deceiving
merchants since the early eighties.
They just won't work. The simple things they are supposed to do, they won't do
Windows 10 is no better. The whole operating system is incredibly slow on my new Acer desktop PC, worse than anything this century. It may run programs better, but is slower than XP.
Software makers choose to be evil, but this goes beyond that.
Here's how Windows 10 secretly deletes or loses your files:
In the old days, you could just indicate a file by clicking on it, and it turned blue. Then you could move or activate it.
Now there is a sometimes-hidden checkbox in front of each file that you click on to indicate the file.
Microsoft has set things up so the folder checkboxes are incredibly "laggy". It takes a second or two to activate a checkmark in front of a file or folder, and even longer to deactivate it.
Nothing has ever been more dangerous in the world of software (with the possible exception of the USAF making their nuclear codes all zeroes).
Sometimes this system freezes. Clicking a checkmark a second time will not deactivate it, but you won't notice.
If you try to activate the checkbox in front of a file or folder, Windows 10's defective software may still have active checkboxes in front of other files or folders, beyond the visible part of the screen.
What this means is that when you are deleting a file, Windows 10 will also delete other files and folders you never intended to mark.
After a while you may notice some of your important files and folders are missing.
If it's not too late, you can scour your recycle bin to find them. Of course that only works if you haven't emptied it yet.
IMPORTANT USER WARNING:
If you use Windows 10, you should NEVER delete a file. Instead move it to a big inactive folder. I challenge anyone from Microsoft to comment here.
