    How do I upgrade the wireless card in my Dell XPS 13? One small complaint with the stellar Dell XPS 13 heard from some users: the stock wireless card sucks. To be more precise, these users have a hard time finding bars while not located directly next to a wireless router. While this might not be such a big deal at home, you can't exactly move your desk at work or your seat at college. Other XPS 13 users who installed a Linux-based operating system discovered that the stock wireless card didn't want to play nicely with their new install. The solution to both problems? You can try a driver or a BIOS update, or you can invest about $20 in a new Intel wireless card. The Intel wireless card has both better reception overall and also plays a lot better with Linux. The process to replace your wireless card takes about 10 minutes and is super easy with the right tools — best part is you probably already have the tools lying around the house. Want to take the plunge and completely repla...

    Seeing as another major round of updates to Windows 10 is about to take place next week it only makes sense to see some fear-inducing articles. In fairness, the articles themselves aren't that bad (see PC World) as the content mostly explains away the so-called controversy. Nonetheless in the age of "I only read the headline" things like "You can't turn off Cortana in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update" with the fine print "...but you can lessen her awareness" does a disservice to the community. Normally, I ignore such articles as in June we wrote a detailed guide called "How to turn off Cortana and stop personal data gathering in Windows 10". That guide mostly applies to the current version of Cortana, but a lot of the privacy tips are relevant for the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. How to sign into Cortana in Windows 10 AU Now, in fairness, Microsoft did change some things around. The criticism that an "off switch" for Cortana is removed is technically correct and likely whe...

Plugging in or unplugging headphones sometimes won't register, drivers will sometimes stop working, and Windows 10 updates will sometimes decide to work against you. There are countless forums across the internet that attempt to fix this problem, most with a different, unproven fix method. Here are some fixes that have helped other XPS 13 users and will hopefully get the audio in your Dell XPS 13 working again. Ensure Windows isn't still asleep Troubleshoot your audio settings Perform an ePSA test Uninstall and reinstall XPS 13 audio drivers Perform a light system restore Audio still not working?

    Have you ever taken your Xbox One to another country? If you have, you may have stumbled across some rather inconvenient barriers. Until now, things like the interface language and the keyboard language were locked by region. This created issues when living abroad while maintaining a Microsoft Account and payment options in your home country, as well as for nations which practice multiple languages. Additionally, some titles simply have poor localization in certain countries, with multi-lingual users preferring to play games in a language separate from their console's store region. Thankfully, Microsoft has listened to user feedback and opted to grant language independence from the console's store region. You can follow the steps below to unlink your console's region from its language. You can use this method to activate Cortana if you're in an unsupported region too by selecting the United States or the United Kingdom as your console's language. Here's how: Double tap the Xbo...

    The Windows 10 Anniversary Update includes an easier way to refresh your computer and remove bloatware, and here we tell you how to use the new tool. When your computer is not working properly, or you simply want a setup free of bloatware, the best solution is to start from scratch doing a clean install of Windows 10 Anniversary Update. However, it can be a tedious process, and even though Microsoft offers a reset feature to reinstall the operating system, it only restores the copy of Windows 10 that originally came with your computer, which may also contain a lot of software and configurations you don't need.

    Use this simple app from Microsoft to force your Windows 10 PC, tablet, or laptop to grab the latest version of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update! Microsoft released the Windows 10 Anniversary Update today to millions of PCs and laptops. We have a detailed guide on ways to get it. Then the official ISO files became available for those wanting to do a fresh install or upgrade. Now, a fourth way has appeared using a very familiar app: Windows 10 Update Assistant. If that name rings a bell it is because many of you likely used it in the past to upgrade Windows 7 or Windows 8 to Windows 10 for free. The same app has now been repurposed for use with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. So why use it at all and not just Windows Update (via Settings)? Simple, not all PCs "see" the update on Microsoft's servers. Case in point, my favorite Huawei MateBook has been stuck on build 14383 for weeks now on the Insider program and still can't see the official update. I have no idea why that is the...
