4) Type or copy paste the below commands and hit enter after every command.

  i)  reg delete “HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\TileDataModel\Migration\TileStore” /va /f

ii) get-appxpackage -packageType bundle |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + "\appxmetadata\appxbundlemanifest.xml")}

iii) $bundlefamilies = (get-appxpackage -packagetype Bundle).packagefamilyname

iv) get-appxpackage -packagetype main |? {-not ($bundlefamilies -contains $_.packagefamilyname)} |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + "\appxmanifest.xml")}

How to connect Bluetooth in Kali Linux 2019.2 or how to enable or problem fix bluetooth on latest version of Kali Linux this would be the great problem experienced by beginners of Linux, particularly if you are Kali Linux user. The Reason is, 

When you opened the bluetooth using the normal GUI, it will display "Bluetooth Turned Off, Turn on to Connect devices and receive file transfers", even when you slided the option to right side on the top right corner (which normally indicates the option is turned on).

So, what you need to do ?

You don't need to perform any vast operations, all you need to do is to just start bluetooth service in your Kali Linux OS.

OK, but how to do it?

Just follow the below steps.

2) Type the following command and Hit Enter

sudo systemctl start bluetooth.service

or you can even use this simple command 

 service bluetooth restart

3) Hit enter.

That's it.

Now, open the same bluetooth screen, you can see your Bluetooth device and linux scanning and displaying nearest devices.


Sometimes, if you are using the Updated version of Kali or any different GUI versions, then u will miss the application. So, the fool proof way for that is using terminal..

Do,this you won't be disappointed.

1) Fire up your terminal

Write Sudo service bluetooth restart and hit enter (if you had logged in as root, simply type Service bluetooth restart)

2) Once service is restarted, type bluetoothctl and Hit Enter.

Makesure, your bluetooth devices are in paring mode.

4) Once your device is discovered, type Pair "Mac address of the device ID" for example Pair 00:18:00:00

Hi, Since the Fall update I have had nothing but problems with a bootable USB drive. Windows media creation tool returns an error 0x80004005 - 0xa001a, which the internet seems oblivious too and the windows 7 USB/DVD download tool creates a drive which is none bootable.

I spoke to microsoft who advised me to download the windows 10 ISO and use the windows 7 USB/DVD download tool to create the media but it failed to boot.

I searched online for solutions as to why windows 7 USB/DVD download tool would not create a bootable USB drive from a windows 7 ISO and I was given directions to use Diskpart. This also failed.

So does anyone have any solutions to fix the 0x80004005 - 0xa001a error with the media creation tool.

I also tried both windows 7 and windows 10 USB Drive in 2 systems and neither would boot the windows install program.

Since, i had experienced the same problem, i decided to figure out the solution myself. So i found a simple solution that work in most cases.

So, what you need ?

Just download the ISO using browser, create a bootable USB and enjoy.
