Q: Yoga 2 Pro: Download 'Yoga Picks Desktop application'

Hi, I accidentially delete the desktop version of 'Yoga Picks'. I would like to reinstall it, but can't find the download. I'm not looking for the 'Yoga Picks' Metro App - I'm looking for the common desktop verson. Can someone please provide a download link? Best regards,Dodson65

Preferred Solution: Yoga 2 Pro: Download 'Yoga Picks Desktop application'

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I accidentally deleted this software too when I cleaned up the system. I need the link to a free download, too.

Hi, I like to have an application check for (updated) drivers for me. With the Yoga 900 i find it quite stupid that Lenovo companion - which claims to do that - can't find anything ever ...even when I ran it before installing any drivers - nor after installing all drivers and finding a new one on the web site. It just doesn't work - says "There are no applicable updates found for you system." I tried using the old Lenovo System Update application which I had on my Y50 - Only to get a different message: "There are no applicable packages found for your system.  It is irritating because right now I 3 non-updated drivers - that I am aware of.Are these tools useless for you too? Thanks

Hi All, Any ideas how to get rid of the following error in the Application Log? It repeats every 20 minutes.---------The description for Event ID 0 from source PLCoreService cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.-------- Cheers PB

How do I migrate my applications (not data) from my old Lenovo Ideapad running Win10 to my new Win10 Yoga to avoid reinstalling?

A:Win10 application migration to new Yoga

Hi lowercase,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Some application may be pre loaded to a specific marketed model that is not available from the support site.
Other application software are tied to the Windows registry and cannot be copied and pasted but needs reinstallation.
 
Checking on the D drive for application and driver may help if present.
Cloning would copy the entire software and OS so it may not be a good option as the drivers may be different

Hello All, I have an issue with my YOGA 700 laptop when logged in multiple accounts simultaneously. Whenever an account is left logged on and the user is switched as opposed to logging off, the cpu usage ramps up very high with several RUNDLL32 processes being the culprit. I have checked the RUNDLL32 processes with Process Explorer and the command line are as follows:C:\Windows\system32\rundll32.exe C:\ProgramData\LenovoTransition\Server\x64\EnableAutoRotation.dll,RunCustomMonitor The directory is as follows: C:\ProgramData\LenovoTransition\Server\x64\ The only solution I have found is restarting the laptop. The problems comes back when again more than one user is logged in. Also, the rundll32 processes only run high cpu on one account at a time and there doesn't seem to be a preference for a specific account, all of them are plagued one at a time with the problem. Disabling the Yoga Mode Control service is a fix but that breaks the mode control which is essential in this laptop. I have tried installing all the available software on the Software page foor the YOGA 700. The rundll32 processes drain the battery very fast and I can't always log off other users when they have apps open!  I have posted a screenshot of process explorer showing 2 rundll32.exe processes using 25% cpu usage each. However, sometimes up to 4 rundll32.exe processes open up and they use combined 100% cpu usage, which makes the laptop run very hot and slow. In t... Read more

On the surface, both the Yoga 910 and Yoga 920 look nearly identical, but in my testing, I prefer one over the other. Let's dig deeper to see the differences between the two!To get this out of the way, both machines have 1TB PCIe storage, 16GB memory, and the Yoga 910 has the 7th gen i7-7550U processor, and the Yoga 920 has the 8th gen i7-8550U processor. 
 
Hardware & Design
Both the Yoga 910 and Yoga 920 are built out of aluminum, which gives them a high quality feel to them.  Both laptops have the keyboard integrated into the chassis, which means less keyboard flex. One thing that I find better in the Yoga 920 is the fact that it's all smooth edges around.  The Yoga 910 has pretty sharp edges which means you could scratch your surface or yourself.  The sharp edges of the Yoga 910 was a common complaint, and I'm glad they rectified it.

Hello Dws520Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.Was this the creators update?
If so, have a look on the following post, this should show if your device has been tested with the update yet:
https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/ht503655
 
From what I can see, your unit does not seems to have made the list, which leads me to believe that this will be the cause of the issue, I would recommend that you revert back to the previous version of Windows, and observe if the fault still occurs or not.
 
Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.==================================================================================Did someone help you today? Thank them with a Kudo! If you find a post helpful and it answers your question, please mark it as an "Accepted Solution"!

I just bought a Yoga Pro 2 for Windows 8.1   I bought the optional Lenovo USB Portable DVD Burner Model DB65. Yet when I put in a DVD to play, the system recognizes it (the drive lights up and the DVD and files show up in Windows file explorere) but nothing happens.  There does not appear to be any software included with the system to play DVDs.  This is puzzling as other computers I have bought that included DVDs always had player software.  I spent about an hour and a half scouring Lenovo support pages and forums to no avail.  Surely there is a download somewhere on the Lenovo sites for this? Or is the expectation of Lenovo that you have to buy player software in addition to the DVD Burner? If the later, can Lenovo recommend the best player software to buy?

A:Where can I download the missing DVD player software for the Yoga 2?

I think you might be running into the issue that: 1)  The Yoga 2 Pro does not have a DVD player built-in, and therefore they don't include DVD playback software2)  Windows 8 (or 8.1) no longer includes the codecs to play DVDs and such.  You have to upgrade to the Professional edition of it.  (silly, yes). I would personally just grab VLC Player from videolan.org, and use that.  Works perfectly fine, and it's free. (Did the external USB DVD not come w/ software?  That's actually strange).

Disclosure:  I received these laptops from Lenovo as part of their advocacy program, so huge thanks to the folks over at Lenovo. I don't receive compensation for my review, and as always, all opinions are my own.

Hardware & Design
Even though both laptops carry ?yoga? in their name, the hardware behind them is vastly different.  The ThinkPad X1 Yoga has the classic ThinkPad black design, which is made of a carbon-fiber hybrid for the top cover and a magnesium-PPS hybrid for the bottom cover.  The Yoga 910 has a similar design from the Lenovo?s Yoga lineup, with an aluminum build throughout.  
 
 
 
The ThinkPad only comes in two colors: classic black and silver; whereas the Yoga has a whole suite of colors to choose from, such as silver, copper, bronze, and even a few exclusive designs, such as the Vibe designs for the Yoga 920 and the Star Wars themed designs for the Yoga 910.

Just curious.
 
I've got a friend who needs a new laptop. She likes the touch/fold aspect of my 1st gen Thinkpad X1 Yoga. Do you all think she would be happy with the commercial Yoga 910? 
 
Any real reason to get the new plain FHD ThinkPad X1 Yoga instead of the similarly equipped commercial Yoga available at Best Buy besides spending an extra $1000 for the ThinkPad brand name?
 
I've owned 6 various ThinkPads since 2011 FWIW. I get it, they're cream of the crop. But I kinda got sticker shock when I just priced out a plain FHD (and we need nothing more) X1 Yoga. About  $2,800, wow!
 
Opinions and advice -- no spam please (thank you!) -- welcome.
 
Best to everyone...

A:Why is the ThinkPad X1 Yoga $1,000 more than a similar Yoga 910?

@Jelks, The biggest difference I see between the X1 Yoga (2nd) and the Yoga 910 is active pen support which seems to be missing from the 910. You could use a capacitive stylus, but expect fingertip resolution, not pinpoint, and no pressure-sensitivity. Fewer USB ports: no HDMI or MicroSD; no Thunderbolt. No TPM module, if you need to store encrypted creditials, e.g., for BitLocker. Not sure about battery life; they claim up to 9 hours of local video for the 910 vs. up to 15 of MobileMark for the X1. Not an apple-to-apple comparison. You're not going to get the (soon to be patched, at least for now) security hole that is Intel's vPro management tech. You may not get Windows 10 Pro, possibly just Home (but you could always give Microsoft the money to upgrade if you need BitLocker or Remote Access). You're not going to get all the "mil-spec" design and testing etc, but if it's a personal machine, you're probably going to avoid abusing it. As you suggest, the "wave" keyboard -- including the trackpoint "eraser nubbin" -- is definitely going to be more expensive on the ThinkPad than the plain Yoga keyboard. I used two generations of ThinkPads (T61p and W520), but about 3 years ago I switched to a Dell XPS 13. A year or so ago, I ordered a X1 Yoga 1st gen for my wife and she likes it very much, so I am pretty familiar with the design and capabilities. TLDR: I think most people would be happy with the 910 vs. X1 unless they want the active pen. Als...
