You are running Adblock...
We're really sorry for the inconvenience, but please would you disable your ad-blocker? Our adverts are relevant and non-intrusive, they appear only at the top and the sides, never in the content. They don't include auto-playing audio either, they really won't spoil your enjoyment of the site. Thank you in advance!
Want to see this appeal go away forever? Support us on Patreon and we'll make that happen! Click the button on the left to find out more.
"I'm not running an ad-blocker!" - Refresh/reload the page, if you still see the panda or have other problems then click here to contact us immediately, thanks.
"Why are you doing this?" - Frankly we're struggling to make ends meet here especially since the site got more popular. The only way we can think to cover our costs is to run ads, but if so many of you keep blocking them...
"But I never click ads!" - Doesn't matter, you should only click them if they interest you. We get paid based on the number of views AND the number of clicks.
"You ruined the site!!!1! I want to send you hate mail!!" - Sure, click here.
Another fact - We have the software and the power to completely block adblock users from our site, but we're not going to, at least for now. We figure most of you would like to support us and you only installed Adblock because of other sites that aren't so considerate with their ad placement. Please, don't punish us because of them, in the seven or so years I've been a blogger/webmaster I've ALWAYS considered the need to balance monetisation with reader experience. I want to build an audience not send them away.
So go on, whitelist us and any other site you love. If it wasn't for ads, the internet would lose a whole chunk of really great niche content like this, which would be a real shame in our opinion.
Now, go ahead and read the page if you want to, but wouldn't it be much more convenient if you just whitelisted us? :)
Windows 10 is on its way, due to be released to the public at the end of next month. Unfortunately that means I won’t have time to test any games for a while, as I have to get all new training materials and books etc ready for Top-Windows-Tutorials.com. Once that’s out of the way though I’ll get to a few of the requests we’ve had.
What are my impressions of Windows 10 so far? Generally positive on the desktop, but not so much on my tablet. Perhaps in pandering to the “Windows 8 sucks” crowd, Microsoft are throwing the baby out with the bathwater and undoing much of what makes Windows 8.1 so stinking awesome on things like Surface and other high end tablets and convertibles. Like Windows 8 though, if you don’t like any particular design change (e.g Start menu) it’s probably only a matter of installing Classic Shell or something similar to put things back to the way they were in Windows 7 (anyone want to code ‘classic’ start screen? There’s going to be a few Surface owners who want that).
I’ll be tweeting regularly about Windows 10 from my “serious” Twitter account @TopWindowsTuts if any of you are interested.
