Windows 10 is coming…here’s what to tell non-technical parent

Windows 10 is coming on July 29th! I’ve been doing Build to Build videos on my YouTube showing what’s changing and how it will affect you.

I got a request to do a video showing Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10 and how to reserve your upgrade, as well as a little demo of the Start Screen. Here’s that video!

NOTE: I apologize for the mediocre audio. I had a microphone failure and ended up using the laptop microphone for the last part because I was excited to get the video out. It’s not representative of the quality I’m known for, and it won’t happen again.

Are you the IT manager for your extended family? Will you be upgrading non-technical parent to Windows 10 or letting them do it themselves? Sound off in the comments below.

How to use Process Monitor and Process Explorer

I was chatting with Phil Haack today about a weird little bug/feature we were seeing in GitHub for Windows. I don’t have the source code for the application, but I wanted to explore what was going on and get some insight so I could give Phil a decent bug report.

He and I spent some time on Skype sharing screens today and he commented “we should be recording this.” So I went back and did just that.

In this short video I remind folks how Procmon and ProcExp work, how powerful they are and I learn some interesting things about GitHub for Windows!

Let me know if you find short videos like these useful, and if you do, suggest topics in the comments!

Also, a reminder, if you’ve got non-technical family or friends who want help with Windows 8, give them a YouTube Playlist designed just for them! http://hanselman.com/windows8
