Problem navigating between web pages
I log in to my email page (call it source page) and click on to email which links me to another web page. At this point the forward/back arrows on top left hand corner disappear. When I close the linked page I'm on it closes my source page. To get back to my source page I have to go to History (which doesn't always work as I often get a blank page) or log back in to my source page, This seems, to me, to be a relatively new problem. So question I have is this normal and if it not is it a Windows 10, Bing or my email provider problem?
Update ver. 2004 Let's hear about your problems.
There are always tricks and hacks to bypass some unwanted updates and their side effects, and the previous update made the sound volume go up to 80% ,this time as well 80%. Some of you experience it too, and for those like me using headphones it's no joke, especially that the level i listen to music etc. is seldom beyond 6%. (Feedback has been sent by me many weeks ago.) The 2004 version finally prevents me from using the old search, where the results get updated as i type in the file explorer search box, and ever since i was ok with the search being slow or not showing all results, it was ok as long i did not have to take additional steps in order to get to any results. As of today i am literally forced to perform one more action in order to obtain the search results, which as most of you know, is by either clicking on the arrow in the file explorer search box, or hitting the enter key on keyboard. I may mention the tool i found today that is not the best, but is not missing any file out of the search results, is fast & allows a lot customization. The name of that search tool is 'Everything.exe' and can be integrated in the shell menu as well as in the file explorer drop down menu or mouse right click. This thing can literally search for any file and despite being set to use index created by windows search, it shows all files. After clicking on 'rebuild' which creates index from scratch the 'Everything.exe' did still show all files....so a 3rd party executable is capable of something widnows after all these years is not. This is just sad. The previous update asked me about location preferences and so on. Why do i have to select same check boxes each time? Now the last thing would be Cortana, which i disabled, but after the update not only the cortana symbol appeared on the taskbar, but cortana got enabled. Apparently Windows is about productivity, yet updates will not be complete unless i confirm some settings, and the search takes more time. Productivity?

Windows 10 100% Disk Usage
Hi Everyone, I have been having recent problems with many computers that are running 100% disk usage. My computer is not running this, but my brother's computer (lenovo thinkpad X131e) is running 100% all the time. I fully cleaned the drive, and disabled Windows Search and SySmain (aka Superfetch), and alot of other things. It seems to work now, but still is not like a new computer. I jumps to 100% when opening a basic app like Microsoft Edge. The only time when it is low is when idiling with no programs open. (still at 10 - 20%). I also have another computer that is running the same thing (Lenovo iDeapad 310). Does anyone know why this happens? My dad has a Lenovo P910 that is 5 years old, and runnig windows 10 Pro. This does not have the 100% disk usage though. Is it different versions of windows?? The thinkpad and ideapad are both windows 10 home. THank you for your time! Joseph
Just sharing about Privacy Concern
When printing out emails, they are printing out in very small print. In the preview window, they are normal. Anyone have a fix? This just started in the last week. Thank you.

Catastrophic Failure: icloud-windows integration
Hello Windows Community Thanks for sharing the lead to the new update Windows 10, which leads to Catastrophic Failure, Which leads to corrupt files, which leads to the close of another day and nothing created and lots of wasted time but there really is nothing else to do during the pandemic. I still type really slowly, my fingers don't always do what I intend them to do, but I can get that system that never wants to comply up and performing even after a total crash out and catastrophic failure warning and no access to USB device. Shall I call that progress or comedy?
