Project to your PC screen
Windows 10 comes with yet another great feature. You can project another device to your PC screen. Though most devices are not designed to be projected to, it is possible. With this feature, instead of just projecting to your PC, you can also control the device from your PC. I find this best helpful when you would like to monitor someone else's PC, like a minor. Unlike Remote desktop, the device does not need to be connected to the same network as your PC. Such like devices include Smartphones through Miracast and other PCs through Miracast or intel WiDi. All you need to do on your PC is click on the start menu or search and type 'connect'. The app will appear and open it. Before connecting, windows will open the 'projecting to this PC' setting and confirm if your PC is compatible with Project. if it is compatible, change the settings to your liking. Once done, Open the connect app and on your other device, if a PC, click Windows key + P and select connect to a wireless display. On the connect tab, yo will see your PC's name. Select it and follow any instructions required, and enjoy your connection. you can also access the connect tab through the action center.

Windows Defender team: Make security easier
Do you feel your information is safe when you’re online? Meet the Windows Defender team and hear the story behind the feature that protects you online!
I have just recently noticed that on both of my laptops when I open them up and do a search Yahoo has replaced my Edge browser. My two laptops aren't on a network and I haven't had any suspicious emails etc This seems to have occurred shortly after I have installed downloads from Microsoft. Is there a connection, and more importantly, how can I remove Yahoo and return to Edge.
How can I stay safe while connected to Wi-Fi?
Use an encrypted Wi-Fi while online. Wi-Fi that is encrypted with WPA-2 is more secure than Wi-Fi that's just open for all to access. If you're working from home, make sure that your home's Wi-Fi network is securely encrypted and using WPA-2. All home routers support encryption.
adding the user account/profile troubleshooter
Microsoft came out with many useful troubleshooters, like the update troubleshooter, network troubleshooter, etc. but one important troubleshooter is lacking. That is the user account/profile troubleshooter. I have gotten corrupted user accounts before in the past (mostly has something to do with temporary internet files not being able to delete) but had to create a new one. I have posted this in the feedback hub before. https://aka.ms/AA62lx7 Will there ever be one? Hopefully someone can let the engineering team know about it.
ISP Problem of Windows Update?
"website (www.microsoft.com) is online but isn't responding to connection attempts." This is the error detected by the troubleshooter. I cannot update my windows 10 whenever I connect to a certain WiFi network or ISP. I've tried ipconfig /renew and /release but it still doesn't work, and other recommendation here in this community but none of those work. Meanwhile I just updated my windows using my data connection. It is clear to me that the problem is not on my machine but it's either on my router or ISP. Do you have any recommendation aside from calling the ISP?
