Microsoft MAIL App and Account explanation on Side toolbar
Curious if someone can explain very simply exactly the ways in which the accounts are being structured for the end-user on the side toolbar inside the Windows MAIL app? I see a couple of "Accounts" if that's what the correct term for it is. Under each account I see "Calendars" If that is correct as well. So my main questions is this- I see: -Cortana -Microsoft Account -Outlook Each one has an enclosed downward facing arrow! Upon expanding the Microsoft account I see Calendar, and when I go to Outlook I see Calendar. I hope that the sentence alone shows my confusion? Please explain how I as an end user should be understanding this structure so i am able to use it to my favor and incorporate some sort of workflow without getting to overly explanatory. Thanks for your time.
user account troubleshooter
hi Microsoft: We would like Microsoft to add a user account troubleshooter to be included with the other troubleshooters like network, Windows update, etc. Last time, my user account was corrupted because I could not delete temporary internet files. Had to create a new one to fix it.
Windows Find My Device with a different account
I have an important question about Windows Find My Device. My laptop got stolen and I was able to see the location where it is but wanted to know if that means the culprit was able to login to my account or not? The laptop was protected with a strong password so I'm very curious how they got in. The question is: if I was able to locate them, does that mean they logged in into my account? Or it could be that they wiped the computer and used a different account to get in. It's very important for me to know this information. Another question: The computer is still attached to my Microsoft account, is there harm to keep that? Or should I delete it from my account. I'm trying to see if I can locate them again.

Helpful ways to protect your Microsoft account
I have seen more times than not, users reaching out about their accounts being hacked. Just a few tips for everyone who stumbles upon this post. > It is advised you change your password atleast once every three months. > Activate two-step authentication to ensure you receive a 6-digit code to a trusted e-mail or cellular device each time you attempt to login. > Never share your account details with anyone and remember, Microsoft employees will never ask for your account password. > Do not click on any suspicious URL's and always ensure you are on microsoft.com or windows.com before typing in any login credentials. This will prevent information phishing. > Never use the same password for more than two accounts. This prevents hackers from accessing other accounts on other websites. If at anytime you believe someone may have access or has had access to your account, change your password immediately. It is also advised that you change the e-mail address associated with your account. Should there ever be a need for further assistance, you are always welcomed to contact Microsoft customer care.
