Anyone who’s upgraded to Windows 10 has probably experienced one or two problems with the operating system. Some even encountered most, if not all, of the most annoying issues with Windows 10, the worst being the blue screen of death.

The good news is some of these issues have the appropriate solutions.

Slow boot times, for example, can be fixed right from the Start Menu. Simply search for Power Options, run the matching Control Panel applet and, on the left hand pane, click Choose. From there, you can change the settings to improve boot time.

The lack of a DVD player, on the other hand, can be fixed by installing a third-party player.

But you have to admit that an operating system is supposed to work well for you, without the need for fixes, minor or otherwise. What if you have no idea how to do more than the most basic computing stuff?

Worry no more. There are now free tools that can fix any Windows 10 problem.
