by Jeffrey Sward
  1. Power settings - start up clock and usb detection
    1. => power options (icon on control panel) => choose what the power buttons do link in left column) => => change settings which are currently unavailable => unchecked turn on fast startup
  2. Manually add resolution to cintiq monitor 1920x1080
    1. => turn on and connect monitor => desktop => nvidia control panel => make sure wacom is selected => display => change resolution => customize => create custom resolution => 1920x1080 => save => back => select
  3. Privacy - check all settings
    1. => settings (gear icon) => privacy => click every item in left column and check settings on right
  4. Check notifications
    1. => settings (gear icon) => system => notifications and actions
  5. Reassign color profile to wacom monitor
    1. => color management (icon on control panel) => select wacom monitor => use most recent swine setting => no color setting on main monitor
  6. Restore fonts which may have been destroyed
    1. There is now a windows font cache which is separate from the actual fonts in the windows\font folder. The font cache file may have been restored to contain only the default windows fonts.
    2. Method #1 - Tested - Working - reinstall all fonts from backup
      1. Note: the font files themselves are likely still in the windows\font folder.
      2. If a workable fonts folder backup is available, use it.
      3. Otherwise
        1. Create folder c:\oinkfonts
        2. From a dos window navigate to c:\windows\fonts
        3. While still at c:\windows\fonts execute xcopy *.* c:\oinktemp
        4. Open two file explorer windows
        5. In the freest file explorer window select all files in c:\oinktemp\ and click copy (or workable backup source if available)
        6. In the second file explorer window navigate to c:\windows\fonts\ and click paste
        7. Copying files back into this folder will generate a "font already installed" message. Check the apply to all files check-box and click install anyway.
    3. Method #2 - Tested - Not Working - rebuild the font cache directly:
      1. From the services window
        1. Stop Windows Presentation Foundation Font Cache
        2. Stop Windows Font Cache Service
      2. It may be necessary to grant permissions to folders in the following steps.
      3. in c:\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local and c:\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local\FontCache
        1. Delete files beginning with ~FontCache-.
      4. Restarting the services may suffice other wise reboot your computer. When Windows restarts, it will rebuild a new font cache. Now you should not see any misplaced or strange font's issues.
  7. Disable brush pop up menu with wacom tablet
    1. Control Panel (you may have to type it into cortana to bring up the desktop app)
    2. Pen and Touch
    3. Change Tablet Pen Settings
    4. double click Press and Hold > UNCHECK the box that says to enable press and hold function.
