How to get help in windows 10: If you are facing problems with Windows 10, you can get quick answers to all your queries and resume your work sooner. Microsoft offers a range of support services with its operating system along with live support through chat or phone. Let us understand the five different ways in which you can get help when using Windows 10.

 

Ways to get help in windows 10

1. Get Help in windows 10 Using F1 Key

The actual windows 10 help section is represented by the F1 key. When you press F1 in a particular app it normally directs you to the help menu. On the other hand for Windows 10, the button directs you to Bing search in the default browser and shows “get help in Windows 10”, which you can perform on your own.

In case upon hitting F1 you didn’t get help, you need to activate it yourself. This can be accomplished when you hold down the Start button while pressing F1 key. Lacking that, a few systems ask you to disable – Function Lock, which can be done by hitting the Fn lock key.

 

2. Get Help in Windows 10 From Microsoft Support

For getting connected with a Microsoft representative directly, you can simply choose a dedicated app already present in your computer. Press the Start button and simply scroll to get Contact Support. In case you can’t view that, search for Get Help.

      In my experience, Windows 10 runs lighter as is even compatible with low end devices. So if your PC could have run windows 7 successfully i don’t see why it can’t run Windows 10.

      About your problem, are you actually trying to re-install windows 10. If yes, can you link me to a screenshot of the error you are encountering?

      That way i will be able to help you better.

      Hi Nicholas, I think it is the hardware problem. The first thing you can do that open the fan and clean it. If it does not work then you have to replace your laptop fan.

    For the life of me, I need to know how to increase the font size in Microsoft Edge. I have to use a magnifying glass to read the tiny, almost non-existing font.

      Hi Jeanne,
      One thing you can do in Microsoft edge is zooming, Just press “Ctrl and +” to zoom in page and tiny fonts will be visible.
      You can zoom a webpage upto 500%
      I hope this will help you to read tiny fonts in edge.

      Hello David,
      Type “hotspot” in search bar and you will get windows 10 hotspot settings.
