Microsoft MAIL App and Account explanation on Side toolbar
Curious if someone can explain very simply exactly the ways in which the accounts are being structured for the end-user on the side toolbar inside the Windows MAIL app? I see a couple of "Accounts" if that's what the correct term for it is. Under each account I see "Calendars" If that is correct as well. So my main questions is this- I see: -Cortana -Microsoft Account -Outlook Each one has an enclosed downward facing arrow! Upon expanding the Microsoft account I see Calendar, and when I go to Outlook I see Calendar. I hope that the sentence alone shows my confusion? Please explain how I as an end user should be understanding this structure so i am able to use it to my favor and incorporate some sort of workflow without getting to overly explanatory. Thanks for your time.

Do you like the search icon or search box or it hidden?
At any point, we would like to customize our Windows desktop, isn't it? By hiding the Cortana icon, task view icon and removing unnecessary apps pinned to the taskbar could make your taskbar more tidy. I personally hide the search box and add the search icon, I don't know why. I feel like I don't even need the search icon too, I mostly use the shortcut Windows + S to open search, but even when I hide the search icon I pretty much feel like my taskbar is not complete. What do you prefer, the search icon or the search box or nothing at all?

How can I see what happened to my computer while I was away?
Can event log be deleted in Windows 10? Hi, I was away from my computer for approx. an hour and want to understand what I can do to ensure nothing was done with my computer while I was away. NB: The machine would have been password protected at the time and locked. My first point of call was running an event log "eventvwr.msc". I have two questions: 1. Can system login be deleted? If so, is there something I can do to show it was deleted? 2. What suggestions are out there for checking anything was done suring this period? I really appreciate your thoughts and comments.

Know about Windows 10 OS updates through the store app?
I've read a few articles eluding to the fact that we may not be seeing full updates for the entire OS through Windows update. Instead, we would be seeing modules updating through the Microsoft store app. This is great for someone like me with no access to broadband, and I was wondering what everyone knew about it, and if they were interested.
