The Bitlocker recovery system!
WTH is this thing! It blocks my system on start-up, and I've tried all the on-screen suggestions to get rid of it. The only thing that seems to work is restarting it twice. This is awful. I don't think it's the hardware. Pretty sure this is Microsoft's fault, especially since they won't discuss it with me via chat or over the phone. This is a huge annoyance and I just bought this computer.

Lock/Login screen - select account / set default account
On the first screen (well, after I entered my Bitlocker PIN ;-)) the account I use most is listed last in the left hand corner, and not the default account. I always have to select it using the mouse (or touch). I would like to use my keyboard (e.g. up/down arrows) to select the account I want to sign in with. Also, I would like to have the most or last used account selected by default (or have a way to configure it somewhere in the settings). The device I use is my personal laptop, it is just that I have multiple accounts on it for different purposes.
I think Microsoft is controlling my Computer
I used to be a member of the Windows Insider group, but I have not been active in almost a year... until I started researching Microsoft Windows ;E 5, then I noticed that thea few months ago I was testing software for a client, I was testing/researching Microsoft 365 E5, I tested it for about a month with my client to demonstrate everything that it can do for his company... Since then, I have done a factory reset on my computer, and changed my Microsoft account information, when Windows 10 Home was complete,, I purchased the Upgrade to Pro, I have tried to use bitlocker with problems from the Group Policy telling me that for Security some settings are managed by my system administrator, I am my own system admin. In recent weeks I purchased 2 YubiKey's so that I can use them with either Bitlocker or within windows for better and faster logins... but I have hit another road block and I cant get the Keys to work because some settings are not in my control. Windows Insider group was connected to the business programs... I ended that subscription... I cleaned and reinstalled Windows.. Help Please
What do you use for working secure with Windows 10 ?
I'm using several security features on my Windows Insiders Build ( Windows 10 Preview fast ring) like logging in with Windows Hello on my Surface and my disk is done with Bitlocker. Keeping Windows Defender up-to-date, Windows Device security like ( Core isolation, Secure Boot, ) Firewall active and using MFA and Two-factor authentication with internet Apps. My Question do you use extra (third party) security features on Windows 10 and what do you miss in Windows 10?
Parental controls and Microsoft Spying
Why does Microsoft make you sign into an account in order to use parental controls in Windows? Why not just have the parent be able to control the computer by NOT allowing changes to the Hosts file (which a 12 year old can easily figure out)? Why isn't there a way to set yourself up as an Admin and PREVENT your kid from changing it by simply resetting the BIOS or some other method? I think it is because Microsoft makes money when the kid is on-line gaming, etc. Thus, there is no real incentive other than to make the parent set up a Microsoft account so that Windows can collect "basic" data and sell it.
The BitLocker Recovery Password Viewer tool is an extension for the Active Directory Users and Computers Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in. By using this tool, you can examine a computer object's Properties dialog box to view the corresponding BitLocker recovery passwords.
Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption is a feature that encrypts one or more volumes (drives) attached to your computer and that can use a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) to verify the integrity of early startup components.
BitLocker in earlier Windows versions could take a long time to encrypt a drive, because it encrypted every byte on the volume (including parts that did not have data). That is still the most secure way to encrypt a drive, especially if a drive has previously contained confidential data that has since been moved or deleted. In that case, traces ...
