Trying to Delete from Settings -> Email and Accounts
I was trying to “fix a problem with one of my accounts” in Windows when I realized that it was an old work account that was complaining. The problem is that “Email and Accounts” in Windows 10 only provides a “Manage” option, which requires login:
The answer: Settings -> Access work or school
This is a pretty simple one but I eventually found the answer here. By going to Settings -> Access work or school, you can [Disconnect]:
Click on the account that you want to disconnect:
After clicking [Yes], Windows will churn for a bit and then you should be all done:
Okay, I get annoyed with Windows’ design on a regular basis, but I don’t know that defaulting to showing file extensions for known file types is the right answer.
I guess the real problem is that Windows 7, like every other Microsoft-designed Operating System, relies on the extension to determine filetype/action, including whether to attempt to execute the code in the file or not. Until the GUI file managers appeared in the *nix OSes, this was a limitation of *nix–if a file was not explicitly executable for the user, an error would be returned.
Today, Nautilus and Konqueror have mimetypes registered in their file managers, just like web browsers do. However, they still rely on the “execute” permission bit being set on a file–which is not default behavior on a downloaded file (rusty Linux brain cells showing). To execute the file, one of two things have to happen: You either have to set execute permissions on the file or run the file as root/sudo/admin user. Of course, execute permissions can still be stored in an archive file (.tar, .bz2, .zip), so an executable file can still appear on your system without you knowingly setting it to execute.
Back to Windows… The default behavior of “Hide extensions for known file types” is user friendly for users who don’t want to know the legacy of file extensions and their uses. However, in the absence of a useful non-administrative mode and explicit execute permissions, this opens the door for some really simple ways to dupe the user. Fixing this problem goes beyond not hiding extensions or showing annoying “Are you sure you want to do this?” pop-ups.
For me, this was happening on a Lenovo T61 with 2GB of RAM… and for every time that I tried to hibernate.
Microsoft Knowledge Base Article (KB909095) : The computer occasionally does not hibernate and you receive an “Insufficient System Resources Exist to Complete the API” error message in Windows XP with Service Pack 2, in Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005, or in Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005.
This problem typically occurs when the computer uses 1 gigabyte (GB) or more of RAM.
INFO: Run, RunOnce, RunServices, RunServicesOnce and Startup:
I believe this is pretty much a bulk of the information set by Xteq X-Setup. For those who don’t want to make the purchase for a very simple edit, the following is the except from the Microsoft KB article
HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRunOnce Not supported in NT 3.51 and ignored by XP and 2000 in safe mode
With the exception of the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE…RunOnce key, all keys and their entries are loaded asynchronously. Therefore, all entries in the RunServices and RunServicesOnce keys can potentially run at the same time.
Entries in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE…RunOnce key are loaded synchronously in an undefined order.
Because the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE…RunOnce key is loaded synchronously, all of its entries must finish loading before the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE…Run, HKEY_CURRENT_USER…Run, HKEY_CURRENT_USER…RunOnce, and Startup Folder entries can be loaded.
