No more symbiosis
If one sizes the ( hardly ever used or needed) Start menu, that impacts the size & shape of Search (Win+S). But, as of 21H2 this will no longer be the case. Sizing Start will have no effect on Search's dimensions. Having mucked about with this in both, I can confirm the validity of the above statement. Cheers, Drew

Confused about Microsoft Mail accounts
I'm considering disconnecting from my Google account and my first step is moving to a Microsoft Mail option. But I'm really confused about the different mail options in Microsoft. Can someone explain the difference between the Mail app that's in the Start menu versus the Outlook app that's in the Start menu versus the Outlook.live.com option that opens up when I select Outlook from my Microsoft 365 menu? (I think there might be more options for this list but I can't remember them :) ) Also, I'm told that since I'm "subscribed to the Microsoft 365", "you have a Microsoft office email" but trying to clarify what that email is has not been easy with the responses that I'm getting from Outlook Support.

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.
