[Windows] How to use the troubleshooting tool Leave common errors to this guy!

Tips / Knowledge

Hello!This time, I would like to introduce from the startup of the troubleshooting tool that comes standard with Windows 10 to the execution of the tool.

Overview What is a troubleshooting tool?

Simply put, it's an automatic repair tool.As it is ...

In the old days, these types of tools that were comprehensively identified and repaired by the tool itself were often not very useful.After all, the main thing was to search online and find a solution.

I also remember that Microsoft seemed to come up with some pinpoint repair tools.I had to reach it on my own by making inquiries and being introduced in forums.

However, since this tool seems to integrate such a large amount of know-how, it is often possible to clear problems that are relatively common by leaving it to this.I feel the evolution of the times ...

Now, I would like to take a look at the steps from startup to execution.


Until startup

First, open the Windows settings.
Personally, I think the quickest way to open it is to press the "Windows key + X" and then the "N key".

Of course, you can also open the start menu and click the gear mark.

After opening the settings, click Update & Security.

A troubleshooting item will appear in the left menu, so click it.
Then click the blue text for additional troubleshooting tools on the right to see a list of troubleshooting tools.

Clicking on the nearest function will bring up the "Run Troubleshooter" button, which you can click to launch.

Let's run

When you run the troubleshooter, you will see a screen like the one below and the problem detection will begin.

In this way, the problem is automatically detected, and if it can be detected, it will be repaired as it is.
Therefore, it is easy because you only have to wait once you can execute it.

Explanation Effective usage and problems

I tried to roughly execute it.
I would like to explain a little about what kind of situations it is useful for.

Effective usage

It's a pretty good tool for solving Windows Update problems.There are many invisible problems related to updates, and there are also many checkpoints due to the mechanism.In other words, it takes a lot of time to look at it from the beginning.

If the hardware is simple, it may be solved.
It will find simple things such as driver malfunctions and network setting mistakes.

It is very helpful to be able to perform these investigations automatically, and it will show you a little bit of what is wrong, so I think it will be a good decision even if you are working on it in earnest.


In many cases, you will not be able to obtain useful information unless you are connected to the Internet, and it is not possible to fix it with certainty, so it is often impossible to solve problems that are a little deeper.

Depending on the order of investigation, it can be confusing, especially if there are multiple issues.
If you solve one, you have to run it again, and so on.

It is also a drawback that it can not be executed unless the OS is started.


This time, I introduced the procedure to execute the troubleshooting tool.

The OS is running, but something is wrong?I think you should execute it when you feel it.
Unexpectedly, you may have some ridiculous problems, so if you run it regularly, you may find something interesting.

I often use this tool with Windows Update errors.
I'm grateful that you can see various things automatically.

However, if everything is automatically resolved, you may not know what was the real cause (which operation caused it), so if you abuse it, you will feel like your brain is degenerated.

It's a useful tool, so if you have a problem, you should rely on it.

I hope it helps you.
