Turn Off Windows 10 device driver updates

Turn off windows update from updating device drivers automatically

Only do this if you want to be in control of driver update “Manually”
This will fix issues with Windows updating to an “Older” or “Incompatible” driver
due to version and dating issues used hierarchy scheming

Windows has made it difficult to navigate in the newer Win10 versions
I have tried to find a way from the menu but cannot, Please post here if know a faster or better way..

1. Fastest (Requires Typing)
Left click the menu >> Choose “Settings Gear”
Type in the search box “Advanced System Settings” and choose it.

2. Click “Start” Scroll down and expand “System” Click “Control Panel” “Click System”

3. (No typing required)
Right click start menu >> Choose “File Explorer”
Right click “This PC” >> Choose “Properties”
Click “Advanced System Settings” in the left menu pane
Click the “Hardware Tab” Choose “Device Installation Settings” button
Tick the box for “No (your device might not work as expected) and “Save Changes”

You can also make a Desktop shorcut:
When in the “System View” use the address bar, drag the computer icon onto your desktop.
Now all have to do is double click the icon.


Lumia Windows Phone Jack Settings, What happens when I plug something in.

A while back I used a selfie stick on my Microsoft (Formerly Nokia) Lumia Windows Phone.
I needed an extension pole to take pictures that were up high, and in places I could not reach.
In doing so I setup my phone to automatically open my Lumia Camera app.
After sometime went by I could not figure out how to change this.
I did not want my phone to open the camera every time I plugged in a headset or Aux cable.

So after searching the web I could not find any information on where this was, I searched all through my settings with no avail.
I finally found that it is an app that comes default on your Windows Phone called Gadgets.
Open the Gadgets App there you will find the settings to change what happens when a certain device is plugged into the headphone/headset jack.
You can select a device to automatically open an app, or select the device to NOT open an app..

I hope this info. has been helpful, as I was getting frustrated with the issue.

BF3 CPU GPU Bechmark Battlefield 3 console



If you want to monitor your CPU to GPU ratio, and Frames Per Second in game.
there is a nice overlay built into BF3

Hit the [`] key and open the console
then type the following, and press enter after each line

FPS type – “Render.drawFPS 1” without the “‘s
this will show current frames per second, 60+ is ideal if using vertial sync it will match your monitors refresh rate, 60HZ monitor = 60FPS, 120HZ = 120FPS if you are dropping below then lower your settings for better gameplay.

CPU/GPU type – Render.PerfOverlayVisible 1 without the “‘s
this will display a performance graph – Yellow is CPU, Green is GPU (graphics)

If the CPU/YELLOW is below the GPU/GREEN then the CPU is bottlenecking the graphics cards.

found it by googleing benchmark tool BF3, I wanted to get my settings perfect.
