"The device is currently in use"
I try to safely eject my USB device and get the message "The device is currently in use. Close any programs or windows that might be using the device, and then try again." I get this message 99% of the time - even when no applications or windows are open. Why is this happening? Is there a way to get around this? I never get this message at work or school, unless the USB device is actually in use. I do log in as a standard, non-administrator user. I only elevate to administrator privileges when necessary like installing applications (I also only temporarily elevate privileges; I never log on as an administrator). So when I get the "The device is currently is use." message, I right-click on start button and click Disk Management. I know that I can safely remove the device by going into Disk Management and taking the device offline. However, I cannot elevate to administrator privileges to get into Disk Management. I get the following message: "You are logged on as a standard user. You can view device settings in Device Manager, but you must be logged on as an administrator to make changes." I don't want to log on as an administrator, but I do want to temporarily elevate to administrator privileges to take the device offline. Is there a way to do this? When I'm logged on as standard user and want to install an application, I get prompted for an administrator password. I want the same thing to happen when I go to Device Manager and other areas that require administrator rights.
What one piece of advice would you give to a new user?
Say someone had never used Windows before, what piece of advice would you give to them knowing they are starting from scratch? As someone who works as a Services Advisor in a Microsoft store, I'd personally make sure they knew that the left click is for selection of items and the right click will (usually) give you a menu with more options. I see a lot of new users struggle with that.

Microsoft versus Chrome
I came across this analysis written by Lifewire concerning these two giants. The paragraphs below are just two that attracted my attention. 'Microsoft has decided to discontinue EdgeHTML and other core components of Microsoft Edge. Instead, the company plans to create a new version of Microsoft Edge based on Chromium. Microsoft is going to build Microsoft Edge on the foundations of Chrome, meaning that key elements like the rendering engine will be identical. What's likely to remain different are the connected services. For example, you may still sync your bookmarks with your Microsoft account instead of a Google account, and Bing will likely be the default search engine for Microsoft Edge. A common platform will make it easier for developers to create content and apps that are consistent across the major browsers'. Source: Lifewire - https://lifewire.com - February 2020 I fully anticipate that Edge' et al will have to evolve as users' demands for greater connectivity and dynamic use increases - perhaps exponentially. 🤔 Post script: I did not get on with Chrome - niggly things I suppose - but irritating as a user.
Like many of the finer things in life, File Explorer has gotten better with age. To check it out in Windows 10, select its icon on the taskbar or the Start menu, or press the Windows logo key + E on your keyboard.
Search File Explorer: Open File Explorer from the taskbar or right-click on the Start menu, and choose File Explorer, then select a location from the left pane to search or browse. For example, select This PC to look in all devices and drives on your computer, or select Documents to look only for files stored there.
I have been feverishly looking for a good file explorer app for quite a while & I have found it! I love this app! It has such a good UI! My favorite feature is the ability to choose & attach files to new email messages in the Mail App (through the Share Charm), which the native desktop Explorer cannot do (through the Ribbon).
