 In Win10's game, Minesweeper, the entire far-right section of the game is not visible and I can not complete a level!

 

Worse, the exact same problem exists in Treasure Hunt!

 

This is just terrible!

 

I haven't been able to sleep for days.

 

Please tell me there is a fix, 'cause I need one!

I am only guessing but have you tried dragging where you want it?

Thanks for the response Doppleganger.

 

Essentially, yes, I have.  You can get the little guy to go into the "grey area" where the graphics no longer show, but he disappears and nothing seems to happen, though you can get him back.

 

It is a problem that many others are also experiencing and I've seen it discussed on other boards.

 

Just thought if it was bothering anyone else here they could join me in my misery in this thread.   :bounce:

Thanks for the suggestions, ranchhand_ and Condobloke,

 

I'm gonna try both!

 

Don't see how it will help the little guy in the games, but, hey, anything is worth a try!

I needed to drag and drop over 40 photos I have online to my computer, but Windows 10 won't let me do it.

All I need is the information to sue these people for changing this.

Now I have 30 minutes to turn in my portfolio and I can't!

How do I contact these people to let them know that they are going to owe me 0ver $5,000 for failing this class?

Where online are the photos?

Where on your computer are you trying to drop them?

He's probably referring to Microsoft. Even thought they cannot be sued for that.

I do find it surpising how features in windows 10, which have been reliable built-in programs on older operating systems can all be so buggy. Given that ms has experience with these little games and such things since before windows xp surely they could just make really tiny tweaks to the older versions and put these into the new OS, just because they've designed a new OS doesn't mean they HAVE to redesign every program which is bundled into it.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB
