I'm using a full windows 10 installation (not an upgrade). I needed to record from mic, checked from start bar and i got the new app, voice recorder. It gave me error while saving. Then i noticed another sound recorder, little little hiding there. I opened it and it was the default windows 7 sound recorder (and for instance it seems to me that old good ".exe"s work far better than new horrible apps ).
anyway, i used that one and it worked properly. Then i closed it. Was going to open it again and guess what? it vanished!
i was like
(1 minute of silence)
^i think you got the idea.
Anyway i've done a little search in internet and i've found out 2 things:
1) that recorder exe shouldn't even have been there, since it's not included in windows 10 default files. (but meh it was, i've used it!)
2) noone apparently ever had a similar problem.
So my question is:
How could it disappear like that? And how can i recover it? (don't tell me to use the new app pls -.-)
i'm used to like windows over linux and mac, i still like it over but they all together falling always lower -.-
Why did microsoft ruin a whole world of perfectly working nice executables bringing out horrible apps? why? What's that groove? i want my WMP back (restored)! what's that i-don't-even-know-how-it's-called picture viewer? i want my windows image viewer back! (i've done that too, but it was hard).
I mean think about the image viewing default app. The old one had all buttons near (next, previous, slideshow). It was perfect. The new one has buttons on opposite sides of the screen- PERFECT! but we are not going to install windows only on touch devices! Can i use my mouse pls? at least leave it to me as an option, i don't want my arrow to be shoot through sides of the screen only to go to next image!
And what to say about that 1-2 seconds blue screen on every single app? You need to calculate something? Sure i open calculator. Oh wait, the new one wants you to sleep for 2 seconds before it changes from a blue rectangle to the actual calculator. Because you haven't a life with something else to do, right? I mean the new programmer mode is useful, but why the do i have to wait your blue rectangle!!!
sry but i had to complain somewhere, forgive me if it ended up to be here. Still waiting to an answer to the main question
