Prior to 2004, I used a Windows-based computer. I was unhappy with Windows because of constant "blue screens of death", hackers planting viruses, etc...When I became a truck driver in 2004, I mainly used a mobile phone and started using Google products. I like their products and they all work seamlessly with each other. Now, I am a full-time Care-Provider for my mother and just purchased a new computer with Windows 10 Pro installed. I decided to give Microsoft apps a try once again because I do like their products. On my PC there are no problems, but on my Android phone, I just can't seem to get Cortana to work hands-free, and with certain apps. I do understand that there is a war between Microsoft, Apple, Google and any other companies that are out there, but, the customer (that would be you and I) should be able to use whatever Assistant we choose to work with any apps that we like and use. Case in point: the Google Assistant comes on automatically when I say "OK Google" (hands-free), and I can set a timer, ask about the weather, play my favorite music in the Google Play app, etc....no problem....Today I downloaded Cortana to work with all my apps and I cannot even get it to turn on without tapping the microphone button. I made it my default app, turned on all the permissions, etc...and I am discouraged with Microsoft again. I haven't given up yet, but I had to switch back to the Google Assistant just so I can do the things I need to do hands-free, which comes with a cost of not being able to use some of the Microsoft apps unless done manually. I like Microsoft's To-Do List, but Google Assistant will only open Google's Task app. It just defeats the whole purpose of downloading all of Microsoft's apps if I can't use everything seamlessly. I use Amazon Music now, and neither Assistant will open it. I would really like to use whatever Assistant I choose with the default apps that I select. Now, am I doing something wrong or does this sound about right?

How do you change default search engine in Edge on a new tab
I use Chrome and Edge interchangeably. I have set Edge's homepage's search engine to be google, but when I open a new tab, it defaults back to Bing. I want to change this, but cannot find the setting to do this. Again - it is when you open a new tab.

Has anyone used the new PowerToys?
I'll preface this by saying I work inside of a retail store for Microsoft. I know we have a diverse range of users here on Windows Community. Was wonder if anyone has used the new PowerToys?

It includes some cool stuff like the ability to bulk rename files and a shortcut guide for all of the handy Windows Key + [Button] shortcuts. The .msi installation file can be grabbed from our Github (Or at this link if you don't know how to get there https://github.com/microsoft/PowerToys/releases )

Password Managers: LastPass vs: Windows Password Manager
I recently had an event, where I could not log into my BofA account on line. I had had this happen before with my Verizon account, and after doing some searching I found the culprit was the interaction between the websites and Microsoft's Password Manager and LastPass. Every once in a while they would not play nicely and get along. If I updated one or the other and inadvertently forgot to update the other, well, you get the picture. What I found yesterday though was really troubling. While making sure that my password in Microsoft' Password Manager was correct, I saw multiple accounts with multiple login credentials, that I haven't used in quite some time, and in fact should have been updated. But multiples? troubling to say the least. My Verizon was the worst with 5 different sets of credentials. Once I cleared all but the ones that I needed, all has been well. Same with BofA. LastPass has really begun to annoy me too. When I log into a site, it nags me with a screen that asks if I want to update that login info.... Seriously! Every single time! And every time on my Android phone if highlight something that need input it asks if I want to auto fill with LastPass. Sheesh! I've been using LastPass since Windows 8, and the
