Bug fix: Export or share function does not work in the Windows 10 Photos app

Export or Share Function Not Working in Windows 10 Photos App

In the Windows 10 Photos app, the Export/Share button that allows the user to export or share photos and videos from the app may not work. This can be annoying if the app is already installed as the default image viewer in Windows 10.

The problem is most noticeable when a user tries to use the “Remix” feature for photos or videos. It can be photos, videos, or a combination of the two. If you try to do this with video, the problem will result in the video no longer be visible. Sound is audible, but no video is visible, just a purple blurry screen with no export/sharing option.

What is the Microsoft Photos app?

What is Microsoft Photos App

The Photos app on Windows 10 lets you enjoy, organize, and edit photos and videos from all your devices, making it a good choice for transferring photos from iPhone to PC. However, as convenient as it is, it’s not without its problems when using the Photos app on Windows 10. According to users, quite often the Windows 10 Photos app does not display photos or the Windows 10 Photos app does not open, which is a sign that the Windows 10 Photos app is not working (Another problem with the Photos app is that iPhone photos do not appear on Windows 10 PC; solutions to this problem are also discussed).

Microsoft Photos (formerly known as Windows Photo Viewer) is an embedded Windows application that can be used as a photo viewer, photo organizer, video clip editor, bitmap editor, and photo-sharing application. It’s available in Windows 7 and 10 and is the new version of the app (you can’t download the old one) included in Windows 10. You can also get it for free from the Microsoft Store by searching under “Microsoft Photos.”

The Microsoft Photos app lets you “draw” on photos and videos and browse your photo gallery by date, folder, or album. OneDrive lets you collect all the photos from all your devices in one place. You can create, share, and view your own albums with OneDrive. Albums are created automatically, but you can edit them at any time. You can also enhance photos by improving lighting, contrast, and color, removing red-eye, straightening them, etc. There is a comparison feature that allows you to compare enlarged images with the original ones and choose the ones you prefer. A number of editing tools are available to make basic corrections and more (like adding filters and other effects).

Despite these features, Windows 10 is not a perfect operating system, and sometimes crashes happen. An example of this is the Microsoft Photos crash. Some users have reported that the Microsoft Photos app doesn’t work correctly or doesn’t work at all. The app crashes when opening an image, can’t be opened at all, or the performance of the Microsoft Photos app is very poor, causing problems for Windows users. If you experience any of these symptoms, this guide will show you how to fix the Microsoft Photos app when it fails, doesn’t work, runs slowly, or doesn’t work at all. For detailed solutions, read the guide below.

If you are experiencing the same problem, reading this article will not only help you solve the problem with the solution options provided but also help you learn another way to view photos from iPhone to PC or transfer photos from iPhone to Windows 10 PC without the Photos app. Read on for more details.

 

What causes the problem?

What causes the problem?

The Photos app on Windows 10 is the default photo viewer. However, sometimes problems can occur when using it. One problem with the Photos app recently reported is that users try to export or share photos and videos from the app but are unsuccessful. This can really be a problem when you open photos on your computer, especially since the Photos app is the default photo viewer in Windows 10 and you don’t have another photo viewer app.

 

  • A similar problem in the Photos app can be seen when trying to use the “Remix” feature for photos and videos. In other words, this problem can occur with pure images, videos, or a combination of both. For example, if you try to play a video with this app, you won’t be able to play it back. In this case, you will only hear the sound, but you will see nothing but a blurry purple screen with no export or sharing options.

 

  • Feedback from users on social media suggests it could be due to an update that was pushed through the Microsoft Store in May, or Windows 10 version 2004.

 

  • The problem occurred when users opened an image from File Explorer or the desktop, causing the Photos app to appear on a black or white screen, after which the UWP app crashed.

 

  • Unfortunately, the error message is not generated or recorded by the event viewer, which means that you cannot diagnose the problem or report it to the Feedback Center with the correct information.

 

  • “The Photos app seems to have a tendency to crash when viewing a large number of images, with several photos being opened at the same time and left open for a while. “After a while, the Photos window returns to the main Photos page and the recent photo is lost (can’t be used in fast-forward),” a user wrote in a Feedback post.

 

  • “The photo window opens but remains white/black with no content. This has been happening randomly and inconsistently for weeks,” another user wrote.

 

  • Windows 10 Photo Import Something Went Wrong – According to users, sometimes something goes wrong when they try to import photos. This can be a big problem, but you can solve it with one of our solutions.

 

  • Import Photos In Windows 10 Is Prohibited – Sometimes you get a message that access to a certain directory is prohibited. This can be a big problem, but you can solve it by choosing a different import directory.

 

  • Windows 10 Photos app doesn’t import – Depending on the users, you may not be able to import photos using the Photos app on your computer. In this case, you should check your camera settings.

 

  • Import photos not working, very slow – In some cases, you may not be able to import photos at all. This may be due to your antivirus software, so you may need to disable or uninstall it.

 

Fortunately, Microsoft has begun deploying Photos v2020.20090.1002.0 for testers in the Windows Insider development channel, which fixes the crash. However, it should be noted that there are no official answers as to the probable cause of the crash.

This problem can have several causes and can be solved by updating your display/graphics driver or disabling hardware accelerated video encoding. You can also try updating, resetting, or reinstalling the Photos app. Follow each of the suggestions below for more information.

Bug fix: Xbox Game Pass does not work on Windows 10 PC

XBOX

Microsoft has done a great job with Xbox Game Pass, a relatively new service that is seen as the future of games. At first, it made its mark on Xbox One, but now the service has moved to Windows 10, with some problems here and there.

 

What’s the problem?

XBOX - What's the problem

Expanding to a Windows PC is not without problems. While you can easily access your Xbox One game pass right from the dashboard at home, finding games with a game pass on your PC is a whole different story.

Not so long ago some users complained about problems with Xbox Game Pass for Windows 10. There is nothing unusual about it, so much so that it is irreparable, but still very annoying. From what we now know, people say they have logon problems when using Xbox Game Pass for Windows 10. Obviously, the application is being updated to get back to the main page and that can be quite annoying.

Unfortunately, that is not all. When downloading a game from the Microsoft Store, the Game Pass application, or the Start menu, nothing happens but the black screen. Sometimes the game starts, but the “back” button does not work, and no one likes it, even a little.

 

What is Xbox Game Pass?

XBOX - What is xbox game pass

Xbox Game Pass from Microsoft is a subscription service that provides on-demand access to dozens of games. This is a huge advantage if you like to play and discover new games, and now that it’s on your PC and not just on your console, your subscription can take you from your Xbox One to your Windows 10 computer.

Xbox Game Pass for PC was launched in June and is part of the new Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Super subscription, which includes Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass for PC and console. But the journey didn’t go smoothly as some users had trouble accessing the Xbox Game Pass for PC, while others – including me – found that a seemingly random range of Xbox Game Pass for PCs couldn’t be downloaded while others did.

 

How do I get Xbox Game Pass to work on my PC?

Make sure that Windows is updated

Make sure that Windows is updated

The hint is almost as superfluous as “you tried to turn it off and on again”, but it’s still worth checking that you have the latest public version of Windows installed on your computer. Although Xbox Game Pass for PC was released in mid-June, the ability to download games that it contains was included in an ironic May 2019 update that was released a few days after XGPPC was launched.

As Microsoft continues to try to integrate all its services, it is reasonable to assume that future Windows updates may change the way the store operates and therefore XGPPC. So, if something breaks, first check if the next update will solve the problem. Here’s how it works:

  • To use the built-in Windows update tool on your computer, just click Start
  • Then go to Settings > Update and Security > Windows Update.
  • From there, some updates are waiting to appear, or you can select “Check for Updates” and see what the program returns.

If you are not sure that you have the latest update from the automatic service, it may not have been officially implemented in your region. You can skip the queue and download the latest version directly.

  • Warning – sometimes there is a reason why Microsoft has not yet released a new update for your system, and this may be because there are still some adjustments to be made. Save everything before you update manually.

 

If the store does not work, try to download the Xbox application (beta).

If the store does not work, try to download the Xbox application (beta)

As far as we can see, the Xbox application (beta) should be a place to view and download at some point after this shaky introduction or Xbox Game Pass for computer games.

So if you have any problems with the good old Windows Store, download the Xbox app (beta) and try to download the game from there. This is the first time that I have had success with some, if not all, games.

You can get the Xbox (beta) app from the Windows Store. Log in to your XGP account and you will see a special Game Pass Store that you can download to your computer.

But your problems may not be over yet. Here we found out that players can download some things and which can’t – they usually get a 0x80070005 error code.

Among the games that seem to be affected by this problem, there is a vampire, a Hollow Knight and Proof, although it is not certain that each user has the same experience.

 

Make sure that you are an administrator or set up a local administrator

Some have reported that some downloadable games may receive a 0x80070005 error message if you are not currently using Xbox (beta) or the Store as a system administrator, while others have said that you should explicitly open the application as a local administrator (for example, on a PC that has not logged on with a Microsoft account) and only log on to Xbox (beta) when it is open.

Although none of these methods has solved our particular problem, there seems to be enough evidence that this method can work.

To check administrator rights or to log in as a local administrator, go to Start > Settings > Accounts > Your information. It is possible to log on as a local administrator.

Attention – make sure that you have saved everything you need, as this will disable the main user account.

To make sure that you are using the Store or Xbox application (beta version) as an administrator, find any of the applications in the search bar, right-click the desired result and click “Run as administrator“. Once you have successfully downloaded and launched the respective games for the first time, you will be able to go back to your normal account and continue the game.

 

Re-Register the Xbox Game Pass

Step 1: Enter Powershell in the Windows 10 search box and select the one that best suits you.

Step 2: Right-click and select Run as administrator to continue.

Step 3: Copy and paste the following codes into the pop-up window and press Enter to continue.

  • Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like “*SystemApps*”} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}
  • Get-AppXPackage | % {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDe\velopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml” -verbose}
  • Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}

XBOX Re-Register the Xbox Game Pass

After you have completed all the steps, you have re-registered your Xbox game card. You can then restart the Xbox Game Pass to make sure that the problem with the Xbox Game Pass not running on your PC is solved.

 

Run your Windows Store Troubleshooter

  • Click Start and select Settings.
  • Select Update and Security.
  • Select the Troubleshooting option.
  • Scroll down and click Windows Store Apps, and then Run the Troubleshooter.

XBOX - Run your Windows Store Troubleshooter - Step 1 to 4

  • The troubleshooter analyzes your system for problems associated with the Windows Store and recommends appropriate solutions.

XBOX - Run your Windows Store Troubleshooter - Step 5 and 6

  • Wait until the fixes take effect, then restart the Windows Store. Check to see if the bug is fixed and if Game Pass games can be installed.

 

Change the Region of your PC

XBOX - Change the Region of your PC - Step 1 to 6

  • Then click Start and select Settings.
  • Select the “Time and language” option.
  • In the Time and Language section click on Region.
  • Click the Country or Region drop-down menu and select one of the countries from the countries page supported by Game Pass.
  • Reboot your computer (optional).
  • Run the Microsoft Store and try to install the Game Pass game.

 

Reset the Windows Store Cache of your PC

XBOX - Reset the Windows Store Cache of your PC - Step 1 to 3

  1. Press the Windows key and type wsreset.
  2. In the search results, select the Wsreset option (execute the command).
  3. Wait for the command to reset the Windows Store cache. Run the Windows Store app and see if there are any improvements.

Microsoft changed the name “My Computer” to “Computer” and then to “This Computer” and for those who prefer it one way or another – or something completely different – it can be easily renamed.

It is also very simple: just right click and rename the file. We tested it on Windows 7, 8, and 10, and it works on all of these operating systems – although there are a few places (like the home screen) where it doesn’t update with a new name.

Settings are made everywhere, although sometimes you may need to update your desktop or close Windows Explorer and open another window to see it.

BSOD Stop Error 0x0000001e

But do you know what can cause an error BSOD 0x0000001e? In general, this error 0x0000001e can be caused by several reasons. This error kmode_exception_not_handled can be caused by a faulty RAM module or damaged or outdated device drivers.

Regardless of the cause of error 0x0000001e Windows 10 BSOD, the most important is to correct the BSOD Stop Error 0x0000001e.

So in the next section, we will show you how to fix the error kmode_exception_not_handled. Please keep reading.

Before continuing with the solutions, the first thing to do is to reboot your computer and make it a normal Windows system.

 

What is BSOD Stop Error 0x0000001e?

BSOD Stop Error 0x0000001e is a hexadecimal error format used by Windows and other software vendors for error identification. The 0x0000001e error occurs when the system is unable to intercept the kernel-mode exception.

BSOD Stop Error 0x0000001e is a critical error from which the system could not recover and displays a shutdown message or blue death screen. The error may contain additional parameters depending on the system configuration. These additional parameters describe where the instructions were loaded when the error occurred.

The BSOD Stop Error 0x0000001e can occur in any Windows version. No version of Windows is exempt from BSOD messages, others such as the blue bluescreen bccode 9f, 0x0000007b error, and 0x000000d1 error, and so on.

When the system collides with Bluescreen 0x000000001e, it displays messages and shuts down sharply. When this error occurs, it does not show a warning message on the screen. These errors are a nightmare for any user as they are the main cause of data loss.

These people will surely understand the need to find the cause of this error, who had to rewrite their work report because of the blue screen error 0x0000001e. If you know the cause of the error, you can take preventive measures to prevent it from happening again.

 

What is the cause of the error BSOD Stop Error 0x0000001e?

We investigated this particular problem by examining various case studies and widely used repair strategies to correct this accident on the blue death screen. It turns out that several different criminals may be responsible for this accident:

  • Windows 7 Bug – if this problem occurs repeatedly in Windows 7 or Windows 10, it is most likely caused by an error that was introduced with a security update. If this scenario is correct, you can solve the problem by installing the appropriate patch (Windows 7) or by installing all the pending updates until the patch is installed automatically (Windows 10).

 

  • Insufficient power supply – According to several user reports, this particular problem may also occur if the power supply is not powerful enough to provide enough power to internal components and connected devices. You can test this theory by disconnecting devices that are not absolutely necessary. If the problem is actually caused by the power supply, you should be able to solve it by switching to a better power supply or using a self homing USB hub to unload the power supply.

 

  • Poor RAM – Poor RAM may also be responsible for this type of BSOD. You can check if this scenario applies to your situation by running the Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool. If the results show that RAM memory is bad, the only way to solve the problem is to invest in a healthy equivalent.

 

  • System file corruption – System file corruption is one of the most common causes of this problem. In most cases, the problem is related to the corruption of boot configuration files. If this scenario is applicable, you should be able to solve the problem by performing a DISM or SFC scan or (in exceptional cases) a repair installation.

 

What does “kmode_exception_not_handled” mean?

It can be a bit tedious and dry to go into details of the “KMode Exception not handled” error. Simply put, this error occurs when applications overwrite each other’s memory, which can lead to BSoD and possibly a complete system crash. Fortunately, this bug is easy to fix.

Before looking for solutions to fix the bug it is necessary to make sure that we have identified the bug correctly.

This message appears on the screen when an error 0x0000001E occurs: “A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer“.

Emerging issue 70008 can be problematic and can cause many other problems. Users reported the following problems on their computers:

 

  • The emerging problem 67758 is another common problem that can occur in Windows 10. However, we have already covered this issue in our article about the new 67758 release, so you should look for detailed solutions there.

 

  • Emerging message 6619 – This error message can sometimes appear on your computer. In this case, make sure that you have updated your system and downloaded the latest updates.

 

  • Emerging Issue 97275 – In some cases, this error may occur due to your antivirus program. To solve the problem, turn off the antivirus program and see if it solves the problem.

 

How to fix Emerging issue 70008 in Windows 10

 

Fix 1 – Download the Microsoft Troubleshooting Software

Microsoft is aware of this problem and has already published a solution to address it. To apply this solution, you need to download and run a diagnostic program.

After you start the troubleshooting program, follow the instructions to fix the error.

Depending on the users, this problem can be solved by creating a new user account. However, it seems that this problem occurs if you have more than one user account on your PC and if so, we recommend you to download and use the diagnostic tool.

  • Open your web browser. After the program window appears in the address bar or in the existing Google search text field you need to enter the following code: cssemerg70008.diagcab

 

  • In the displayed list of results, click on the first element (usually a link to the Microsoft support site). View the information on the page if you want. Finally, scroll down to the Resolution menu and click on the Troubleshooting link to download the desired file.

 

  • Your browser should extract and save the file on Microsoft servers. Once the download is complete, you need to click or double-click on the downloaded item to start it. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to ensure that the troubleshooting process identifies and resolves the Emerging issue 70008 problem you encountered on your Windows 10 PC.

If all goes well, you may have to reboot your system for the changes to take effect. If the procedure is successful, you can now launch or open Universal or Microsoft Store applications without problems.

 

Fix 2 – Check your antivirus program

According to users (too significant to ignore), the Emerging issue 70008 in Windows 10 may sometimes arise from your antivirus program. Your antivirus program may interfere with some Windows 10 features, causing this problem.

However, you can solve the problem by simply disabling some features of your antivirus program. If this does not help, you may have to completely disable the antivirus program.

In the worst case, you may need to uninstall the antivirus program. If uninstalling your antivirus program solves the problem, the next step is to switch to another antivirus solution.

We recommend also that you perform the necessary procedures step by step to reduce any consequences or inconvenience that may arise.

  • You can start by turning off your antivirus program to see how it works. Open its application, go to its settings or menu, and find the real-time protection feature or a similar feature you want to disable. Turn on any other dominant feature to which you have access, and look at the new status of your PC.

 

  • As usual, you may need to reboot your system for the changes you make to take effect. If nothing has changed (which means your problem persists), you may have to go to more intrusive procedures.

 

  • If you strongly suspect that your antivirus program is causing your headaches, no one can blame you if you have gone uninstalled. Whatever happens, make sure that you follow the installation process correctly to make sure there are no leftovers or remnants of your antivirus program that could cause problems. At the end of the process, you will need to reboot your computer for obvious reasons.

 

When your computer is turned on and Windows has calmed down, you should check that you can now open and run universal applications or the Microsoft Store itself. If all goes well, you will get almost complete confirmation that the antivirus program is responsible for your problem.

But you can’t leave your system without any security or protection. Your current configuration can cause other problems, some of which are even worse than the ones you just solved.

 

Fix 3 – Use PowerShell

To solve the Emerging issue 70008, some users suggest using PowerShell. It is a powerful tool and if you are not careful, you can damage the operating system.

If you want to be completely safe, you must create a restore point for the system before running PowerShell. To solve this problem with PowerShell, follow these steps:

1.) Press the Windows + S keys and type PowerShell. Right-click PowerShell, then select “Run as administrator” from the menu.

Emerging issue 70008 - Use PowerShell -

2.) When running PowerShell, type the following commands and press Enter after each command:

  • Get-appxpackage -packageType bundle |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + “appxmetadataappxbundlemanifest.xml”)}
  • Emerging issue 70008 - Use PowerShell - Step 2

 

  • $bundlefamilies = (get-appxpackage -packagetype Bundle).packagefamilyname
  • Emerging issue 70008 - Use PowerShell - Step 3

 

  • get-appxpackage -packagetype main |? {-not ($bundlefamilies -contains $_.packagefamilyname)} |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + “appxmanifest.xml”)}
  • Emerging issue 70008 - Use PowerShell - Step 4

After running all the commands, close PowerShell and see if the problem is solved.

Few users have reported that running the first command solved the problem, so you may not have to run all the commands to solve the problem.

Also, some users have reported that they have solved the problem with the get-appxpackage -allusers | remove-appxpackage in PowerShell, so you might want to try this too.

 

Fix 4 – Install the latest Windows 10 updates

If the Emerging issue 70008 still appears on your PC, you can solve the problem by simply installing the latest updates.

If the problem is caused by a problematic update, you can block the update installation with the Show/Hide Update tool.

To use this tool effectively, you need to know exactly which update is causing the problem, so keep a close eye on the recently installed updates.

 

Fix 6 – Perform an SFC and DISM scan

Depending on the users, this problem can sometimes occur due to system file corruption. However, you can easily recover damaged files by performing several scans on your PC.

To do this, follow these steps:

Press the Windows + X button to open the Win + X menu. Select the command prompt (Admin) or Powershell (Admin) from the menu.

How to solve ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED problem in 12 steps

 

ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED Windows 10

The ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED error usually appears when trying to connect to a website. When this error occurs, a message appears indicating that the web page is unavailable. You will not be able to overcome this error and will not be able to access the website.

Essentially, the ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED error is caused by problems with your DNS address. Your DNS address on the Internet is blocked for various reasons, so the ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED error occurs.

 

This Webpage Is Not Available ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED

ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED Windows 10

If you suddenly receive an error message saying “Error 105 (net:: ERR NAME NOT RESOLVED): Unable to resolve the server’s DNS address” while browsing, this means that the DNS lookup failed. This type of error is one of the most common errors that can occur when using the Chrome browser. And since it is a fairly common error, the solution is also quite simple.

Do you get ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED when browsing in Chrome browser? Sometimes this error affects several web pages while in other cases it only affects certain web pages. In any case, this error prevents the loading of web pages. An unrecoverable name error in Google Chrome technically means that the domain name cannot be resolved. As we all know, DNS (Domain Name System) is responsible for domain name resolution, and every domain on the Internet has a name server that allows DNS to resolve domain names. If for some reason DNS cannot resolve a name server, it is because the site is unavailable: ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED.

There may be several reasons for this error. In general, the error may be caused by an incorrect computer or router configuration, or a problem with the web page you are trying to visit and which may not be available. Whatever the reason, here you can try an effective solution to fix the err_name_not_resolved chrome. And I am sure that one of them should solve the problem.

 

What causes the “ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED” error?

There are several reasons why domain name resolution may not work. One of the most common reasons is that the DNS server is (temporarily) unavailable. In this situation, if there is no record for the site you want to access in your browser’s cache or in the DNS cache of your operating system, the DNS cannot resolve the domain name. The above-mentioned address records by themselves may be a possible cause of the “ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED” error in Chrome.

This error may occur, for example, when a browser tries to reply to a DNS query with a cached address if the IP address has changed during this time.

Other possible causes of this error are router problems, misconfigured Internet settings, Chrome’s prediction service for faster page loading, malware, and faulty security software.

 

What does the error message “ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED” mean?

If you received an error message “ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED“, Chrome reports that it was unable to find the IP address that matches the domain name of the site you entered.

In this case, you will not be able to access the site because the IP address is required to connect to a web server.

This error may occur regardless of whether you are using Chrome on your desktop (Windows, macOS, or Linux) or mobile device (Android or iOS).

This error is not limited to Chrome; it may also occur in other browsers such as Firefox or Safari. However, you will get another error message from Google Chrome if DNS cannot resolve the domain name when you try to access the website.

 

How to fix the ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED error in Chrome?

Solution 1: Try another browser

If you don’t want to waste time trying to figure out how to get around this error, you can just switch to another browser.

 

Solution 2: Check your antivirus program

Depending on the user, the err_name_not_resolved error may sometimes occur due to your antivirus program.

DNS PROBE FINISHED NXDOMAIN: 9 guaranteed solutions to the chrome problem

If your Chrome browser reports an error saying “This web page is not available“, it is because of the DNS PROBE FINISHED NXDOMAIN error. Here you will have the guaranteed steps you need to take to fix this error on your Windows 10 computer.

DNS PROBE FINISHED NXDOMAIN - Google Chrome Error

DNS PROBE FINISHED NXDOMAIN error in Chrome

When you try to access a website by entering its name, your computer’s web browser uses the help of a DNS server to find the IP address of the website you are trying to access.

For example, if you type youtube in your Chrome browser, the DNS server automatically returns to Chrome the IP address (216.58.218.110) of that site.

However, sometimes the DNS server does not provide this information to Chrome, which leads to DNS error messages.

The DNS PROBE FINISHED NXDOMAIN error code in Windows 10 is essentially trying to tell you that the DNS lookup failed when the Chrome browser tried to access the desired website.

 

What does DNS PROBE FINISHED NXDOMAIN mean?

The DNS_PROBE_FINISHED _NXDOMAIN problem starts because the IP address does not match the DNS computer. More technically, DNS translates all messages of the target domain into an IP address.

The real problem occurs when someone enters a URL into their browser; finding a server with the corresponding server IP depends on the DNS. In general, the search process is redirected to the target site, but if DNS does not work, it will cause errors. In this case, the browser will display an error message “DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN“.

The message “NXDOMAIN” is an abbreviation for “Non-Existent Domain“. This error occurs very often and there are effective solutions for the same error. Usually, different browsers offer different solutions which will work depending on the connection to the server. For example, in Google Chrome there is a message “This site can’t be reached“. In the case of Firefox, the message will be “Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site“.

 

What is DNS and why does this error occur?

DNS is an abbreviation of the Domain Name System, which is responsible for matching the IP (Internet Protocol) address with the domain name. As a rule, we use a domain name to visit a website (for example, google.com). In fact, it is the IP address that allows us to successfully visit the site. Each domain name has a valid IP address (for example, one of Google.com’s IP addresses is 74.125.224.72). We use a domain name instead of an IP address because the domain name is easier to remember.

Every time you enter a domain name in your browser, DNS looks for the IP address of the domain name and returns the result. If DNS finds the IP address, you can successfully visit the website. If DNS does not find the IP address, you may get DNS errors such as “DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN“.

 

What causes the DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN

As mentioned earlier, the DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN error is caused by a problem with the domain name system, usually because the user’s computer cannot resolve or translate the IP address of the target website. This error is very similar to the “DNS server isn’t responding” problem. If you encounter a temporary DNS error, you will also encounter the INET_E_RESOURCE_NOT_FOUND error.

The computer uses the DNS defined in your router or modem. Usually, this is the DNS of your ISP (Internet Service Provider). In most cases, using a public DNS server will be the most effective choice. However, the problem may also be due to a wrongly configured HOSTS file.

Due to this problem, the user may be denied access to some or all of the web pages. In this situation, it is difficult to understand the meaning of the error and its cause. Many users start looking for answers to the Internet; however, users almost are never given detailed instructions with pictures.

Fortunately, we have prepared a detailed explanation of how to fix the error code: DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN in chrome.

DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN-Google-Chrome-Windows-10-Error

  • TIP: One thing we recommend is to try to access another site first. If you find that you can access other sites but not a specific site, the problem may be on the other end and not with you. If so, you may have to wait for a while and try again later.

3.) After restarting your DNS client, close the Services window and make sure that the problem is solved.

 

Fix #6: Disable your VPN software

Many users use VPN to protect their network privacy, and while VPN clients are extremely useful, they can sometimes cause some problems with the DNS.

To solve this problem, it is strongly recommended to temporarily disable your VPN client and see if it solves the problem.

If disabling your VPN client does not solve the problem, you may need to remove the VPN client from your PC temporarily. Users have reported problems with the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client, but almost any VPN client can cause this problem.

To completely remove the VPN from your PC and avoid any problems in the future, we recommend you to use uninstall software to remove it.

If you are not familiar with it, the uninstaller is a special application designed to remove programs from your PC. Besides uninstalling programs, this application also removes all files and registry entries associated with this program. So it will be as if the application has never been installed on your computer.

 

Fix #7: Disable your proxy

1.) Press Windows Key + I to open the Settings.

2.) When the settings app opens, click the Network & Internet.

DNS PROBE FINISHED NXDOMAIN - Disable proxy - Step 1 and 2

DISM failed: absolute fix to the Windows 10 error

DISM-Failed-dism-sfc-fix-windows-10

In this topic, we will talk about DISM Failed which is a common error in Windows 10. Deployment Image Service and Management or DISM is an integrated tool that allows network administrators to prepare, modify, and restore system images, including the Windows Recovery Environment, Windows Configuration, and Windows PE (WinPE). However, you can also use this tool to solve common problems related to the hidden image recovery of your computer.

If your device does not start up properly, has performance problems, or if you need to fix a specific error, you can usually use the System File Checker tool to scan and replace missing or damaged system files using a hidden recovery image in your installation.

The only caveat is that the SFC tool will not work if one or more files in the Windows 10 image are corrupted. If you are in this scenario, you can use DISM to restore the “install.wim” image and then use SFC to restore the installation without having to reinstall the operating system from scratch.

 

What Does DISM Do

The Deployment Image Servicing and Management Control Tool provides three options for Windows 10 image recovery, including Check Health, Scan Health, and Restore Health, which you want to run in this order. Depending on the severity of the problem, you can also use special settings with the Restore Health option to restore a locally available image using different source files.

In this DISM Failed Windows 10 fix, we will look at the steps to use DISM and SFC tools using a command prompt to restore your device.

Important: Although these are non-destructive commands, you will make changes to the system. It is recommended that you make a temporary full backup before you get started.

 

The most common error messages for DISM Failed and why it happens:

DISM-Failed-Error

      1. DISM failed no operation was performed
      2. DISM failure when attempting to copy boot files
      3. Error Code 87, 112, 11, 50, 2, 3,1726, 1393, 1910, etc.
      4. Dism.exe failed validating command line, to load wim manager
      5. DISM failed while processing command cleanup-image, add-package
      6. DISM failed 0x8000ffff, 0x800f0954, 0x800f081f: The Source File Couldn’t be Found
      7. DISM failed to load the provider, to unload offline registry, to flush file buffers, to set the windows directory, mount the image

We execute a DISM command to recover damaged system files. This is therefore a very important command for diagnosing problems with Windows PC error. If a DISM failure occurs, several error messages may appear. However, the solutions are very common.

 

How to Fix DISM Failed

Solution 1: Check your Antivirus or Security Software

Antivirus software installed on your computer can cause many problems (e.g. compatibility problems and file loss). Unfortunately, it will also cause a DISM Failed error. Antivirus software in the security program is able to interfere with your system and any critical process.

Therefore if possible, I advise you to disable all antivirus/protection programs or remove them temporarily and then repeat the DISM scan to see if it works.

  • If this has helped solve the problem of DISM not working, you should consider modifying the antivirus software or disabling the security features.
  • If this method did not help, it means that the DISM error has nothing to do with the antivirus software and you should continue to see other methods.

 

Solution 2: Execute DISM Command in “Clean Boot” Mode

This method works when a DISM fails due to a service conflict.
