Reddit user FalloutBoS has posted a salutary warning to others thinking of upgrading to Windows 10: be careful it doesn’t result in your wife finding out about your porn collection.
FalloutBoS says that he installed at the end of last week.
When his wife got up the following morning, the computer was merrily rotating through his carefully curated collection of x-rated images, using the hardcore pics as a screensaver:
Loaded up WIN 10 last night and left it on to do its thing. Woke up to wife asking why I set it to rotate all my porn images right on the desk top view. I have no idea how to shut that feature off and that computer is staying shut down until I do.
Free windows and a free trip to the doghouse. Thanks Microsoft!!!
Edit: Don’t make my mistake, keep your private pictures out of My Pictures, no matter how deep you hide them in sub folders. My wife is very happy I admitted my mistake on this sub. She said I took my medicine and she now finds it quite funny. ‘Ain’t love grand?
I guess it’s a good thing Aunty Hilda wasn’t staying with them over the weekend…
If you have content on your computer which you don’t want other users to see, it might be worth creating an encrypted archive and ensuring that you haven’t placed any (ahem) compromising content in the My Pictures folder.
You have been warned.
