I still think Windows 11 is wonderful, and I'm running it on a Core 2
You remind me of Butters, 11 is

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull​

Wasn't MS trying for years to wean us off Snipping Tool and PrtScr+Paint, onto Snip & Sketch instead? Now with 11, they refreshed both Paint and Snipping Tool, and canned Snip & Sketch instead? :confused: I don't mind either application, but can they pick a line and just stick to it?

Also appears to be the case that while you can retain Snip & Sketch due to updating from 10, as soon as you install whichever update includes the new 11 UI Snipping Tool it also uninstalls Snip & Sketch.

Quick fix for snipping tool bug seems to be to manually set the Windows date to some time before Oct 31, then open Snipping Tool to verify it's fixed, then switch back to auto date. Still fixed after reboots.

Thank You for that. Now we all know who's opinion to ignore going forward.
(Just an FYI there bud, Indiana Jones & the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was an excellent movie! For you to compare 11 to it is indeed saying much, but your implication of it being a negative connotation is deeply flawed.)

Maybe, but it's not going over very well with a lot of people.

So I'm unable to update, I assume I need to go into bios and enable TPM and convert over to UEFI etc... which I can do...

But how the hell does M$ expect the average user to know how to do that stuff.

The average PC/tablet/laptop user would not have to do anything if the system is about 5 yrs old or younger. By default the UEFI bios & TPM stuff will be enabled either on the motherboard on in the CPU.

:laugh::roll: If this were not so obviously sarcastic, I would genuinely be sad for the person making this statement. Funny as hell!!

Obviously we need lootboxes on win11 to drive adoption

Virtualization was disabled so idkwtf.

Its like when Apple downclocks your SOC.. great, thanks..

Wait.. I upgraded from 10.. not a clean install because I like it dirty. Should I try a clean install? Cleanliness is godliness right?

Edit:

Forgot the screen cap :D

On many Motherboards TPM is disabled.
Probably boards that came out when win11 was not officially launched but it doesn't matter a lot. As long as either the cpu or the mobo has it, then all is ok.

I know you were being funny, but realistically, microsoft just needs to officially & publicly drop the hardware limitations and TPM/SecureBoot crap.
They won't I'll bet. HW security is the new "normal".

On another note; I'm not mucking around with circumnavigating HW fixes for win11, this is why I side graded my "General PC" to Zen+ platform now. To take advantage of the win11 upgrade option that has now, but I'm still in no rush whatsoever to upgrade. Win10 is still fine for the time being.
