Oh no a keyboard oopsie 😮🤔
I preface this posting by indicating that I reported this oopsie to the 'Hub' yesterday evening. 😊✔ At 19:40 UK local time, I attempted to use my computer. However, I found that my Bluetooth keyboard was unresponsive to my 'tapping'. I had several attempts to remedy the problem; the keyboard remained unresponsive. I had to ask a family member if there was anything happening on the screen 🤔 - there was not. I decided to do re-start - the keyboard remained unresponsive. I then powered down the device, unplugged all device and peripherals and plugged back in and powered up. I was able to check settings using my mouse pointer and I located a system message that read my email provider settings were out-of-date, My email settings have never been out of date. I concluded that Windows had been checking my system. No problems with that. 🤩 I clicked on the MS account panel and proceeded to go through the checking process. The Bluetooth keyboard was re-initiated. 🙏👏 #JustSharing 😊 Keep well all.

Is there a way to wait to install an update
I have tried to turn off windows updates but even when I go in and disable them, they still manage to turn themselves off. I only find out when I got to turn off my laptop and my options are update and restart or update and shut down. I like to be there when it's updating and sometimes I want to go to bed. So what are my options ....I have to sit there and wait for it to update. Why can't they give me an option to ignore update for now and shut down normally. I feel like I have no control over my computer updating. On my apple devices it tells me when there is an update available and I can decide when it's a good time for me to update. Is there some way around this? I'm in the market for a new laptop and I am seriously wondering if I really want to get another windows laptop because of the lack of control over the updates.
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.
Is there a maintenance service that the customer can purchase (annual basis) from Microsoft? I thought I came across this kind of thing the other week (perhaps I am wrong). The purpose of this service is for Microsoft to (via proxy) to keep the system up to date and problem free? I cannot find the link now 🤔 Many thanks

Windows UI has a problem
Today, after opening my laptop, I found some of windows and apps have wrong layout. The minimize, maximize and close button look like Windows Server versions, they become larger. Also, I can't see some texts because they aren't displayed, or displayed but have exact same color as background. Thank you in advance!
