Microsoft's new competition from Google "Stack"
This one I must ad is rather formidable too. Google's Area 120 has released an app called Stack. https://www.androidcentral.com/google-area-120-develops-stack-document-scanner For those that have not read about it, it is a mobile scanner app much like Microsoft Office Lens. Being the curious type that I am, I had to try it out. Here is what I found. This is going to make Microsoft sit up and take notice! plain and simple. Why? Mainly because of the AI features that they have built in, but also the "Stacks" are easier to access, than are Microsoft's, upload locations. Also you really don't need to center the device on the object to be scanned, just over it. You'll just have to try that one. But let's talk about the AI. What got my attention there, was when I scanned an item, which happened to be a bill, when it was ready to save to their "Stack", it showed me the name of the Payee. Where as with Office Lens I would need to edit their random file name to reflect the payee name. Maybe not a big deal, but certainly noteworthy. for those like myself that use Office Lens fairly frequently. Those are the 3 up sides. The down sides are, it's still in Beta, I felt that the UI was clunky, and although it says you can save the scan to somewhere other than Google Drive, I didn't find anywhere to change that. I saw where to turn it off, but not where to change. it. Bottom line from a lay person: Google Stack can when polished give Microsoft Office Lens a run for it' money, But Office Lens is tried and true and just keeps getting better and better. I'm staying with it
Shutting down, restarting, or hibernating your PC
To shut down your PC: > Click Start, click the Power button, and then click Shut down. To restart your PC: > Click Start, click the Power button, and then click Restart. To put your PC to sleep: > Click Start, click the Power button, and then click Sleep. To hibernate your PC: > Click Start, click the Power button, and then click Hibernate. Notes and Tips: - If you enable Hybrid Sleep before putting your PC to sleep, it writes information to a disk, and then turns it off. If a power loss occurs, turning your PC back on will restore information that was written to a disk before it was put to sleep. - For fast start-up to work, your PC must have hibernation enabled. Check with Power Options in Control Panel. - You can also right-click Start and then point to Shut down or sign out. - You can use Power Options in Control Panel to configure your PC's power button or keyboard's sleep button to do other things like shutting down your PC or putting it to sleep. - If you have a laptop, it'll hibernate itself automatically after it's been to sleep for amount of time that you set in Power Options, found in Control Panel or Settings. - If your PC uses InstantGo (also known as Connected Standby), its screen will turn itself off if not used for a long time and continue performing background tasks like updating apps and syncing emails. There's no need to shut down your InstantGo-compatible PC, but if you wish to, hold the power button for four or five seconds, and then slide down from the top of the screen to shut down. - If any pending updates need to restart your PC, clicking Shut Down from the Power icon on the Start menu will configure updates in a first phase, restart your PC, configure updates again in a last phase, and then turn your PC off. - Some devices like keyboard and mouse may wake your PC up from sleep. To put a stop to this, go to Device Manager and check whatever device will wake your PC up from sleep.

Update failures for Window 10
Hi everyone Is anyone experiencing updates failures for 'cumulative updates for Windows 10 version 2004 for x64-based systems #KB4550936. This has failed four times or perhaps even five times. I have gone through the usual routes of trying troubleshooter - unsuccessful. When I have clicked on the support thread, I am taken to a landing page which indicates 'sorry page not found'. I have to think that this will be fixed. I would just like to understand what has failed and why. I am a curious person. Views anyone?

FAO Moderator 😊 Windows 10 Quick Guide (PDF) Feedback #1
Hello What follows, are comments from my two neighbours/friends who read the guide. I preface my comments by indicating that these people are big fans of Windows/Microsoft. 'Most likely we would not read the guide as we are very familiar with Windows'. 'However, as you requested we did read the guide and we think it is very good - we are able to follow the videos and instructions with no trouble whatsoever'. 'We normally flip over to the search engine and ask our question if we get stuck with something - we think this is a better way for us'. 'For visually impaired people, videos will not be that helpful'. 'Keep us in the loop Anne'. 'BTW, we like the new Edge - very fast on our new Surface devices'. So Moderator 😊 - this is the feedback from my friends who are Windows fans 👏. I will leave all the other feedback on this platform as soon as I have received it. Keep well and regards to the Windows Teams 🤩
I have not down loaded the GlobalSigncom. but when I open my Virgin Media Email account, the message suddenly appears at the left of my email address that Virgin Media are not safe and some one could be reading what I am looking at. It is GlobalSign that is telling me this issue. I have tried to remove GlobalSign, but have not found a way to do this. Not sure what to do next apart from contacting Virgin Media to deal with this issue. Any one had the same problem, if so let me know or explain how to remove it from my computer. Regards
