I have a backup Windows 7 laptop at my home and forgot the login password. Is there any easy way to get it unlocked?
How to Easily Reset a Password in Windows 7

A reset disk is required AFAIK which means that you should
made a USB reset password, first time.

Restart your PC. Press F8 to enter Windows® Boot Menu and then choose
Safe Mode with Command Prompt.

Then enter the following:

net user root /ADD

Then neter the following:

net localgroup administrators root /ADD

Then finally, enter the following:

net localgroup users root /DELETE

The reason we are deleting the root from
localgroup Users, is because the new account
would be in both the Administrator group and
the (restricted) Users group.

It will look like this in group details:
Users,Administrators.

Either the dvd writer is faulty or dvd is faulty.Another reason may be your dvd writing software is faulty(this you can easily test by installing another dvd writing software).

iTunes software is not starting up in Win7. Error message that iTunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Indeed there is a problem with the audio jack of my desktop but does that mean iTunes won’t start?
How to bypass this?

But will they port DirectX 12 to Windows 7? That's what I want to know.
From above link:
The Windows maker also clarified that buying Windows 7 ESU doesn’t mean that organizations will receive Help Desk support or any regular bug fixes and patches, as updates will only bring patches for bugs rated “critical” and “important.”
So I guess the answer is no.

Windows 10 - crap = LTSC . Its for enterprises , so things like cortana, windows store, those Candycrush apps are not present and not downloaded. Breaking updates are also optional / infrequent. Only negative is that some win 10 exclusive games don't work - AOE definitive edition. Which is bummer, as normal win 10 is horrible IMHO.

btw if you can look past the hate, try windows 8.1. Its been 100% stable for me for years.

There is a way to add MS store functionality to LTSC/LTSB.
