Can't delete individual files on a CD in D Drive

by ksyznet / October 14, 2013 11:13 AM PDT

I wanted to delete some audio tracks from a cd I made.\
They won't delete.

The Windows 8 message says to go to
Disk Cleaner and chose "D Drive " from the drop down menu, however, there is NOT Drop Down Menu and the only thing Disk Cleaner goes to is to clean files on the C Drive.

Doesn't microsoft even know how its lousy operating system, which is universally detested, works?

What a disaster Windows 8 is., At least I got a older type starter button through the MIT guys, which makes it more palatable. Oh yeah, the Windows Explorer also leaves a lot to be desired.

Any ideas on the above, I would appreciate.

Most audio CDs are write once read many media so you can create a new CD with just what you wanted.

You bring up a good point. Since you don't see folk hitting classes or books do you think Microsoft should have more online classes?

In reply to: True.

I don't think that today's breed of computer user is interested in learning how to get their computer to run correctly, but are looking for a chance to complain and or Bash Microsoft and get anything and everything handed to them on a silver Platter.

The above is my opinion and mine alone and doesn't necessarily reflect that of Microsoft, it's employees, or any other member of this forum.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
