Last update changed DOWNLOADS from Library to List! HELP!
On both my laptop and my PC, after a recent automatic update, my DOWNLOADS folder no longer appears as a Library where I can select the picture I need based on my past configurations in folders followed by individual pictures as I myself named them! Now, the folder appears only as a vertical configuration of my most recently-downloaded or used pictures! I'm unable to navigate, to choose photos I have NOT used recently! This is ridiculous! (My PICTURES folder appears unchanged on my PC, though I think it too is now a vertical "list" on my laptop.) PLEASE SUGGEST A WAY I CAN REVERT TO THE PREVIOUS DEFAULT CONFIGURATION! So far, nothing I've done has remedied this situation! THANK YOU!
What is Productivity?
I'm often baffled by the way people use the word "productivity". It would seem I may have the wrong idea of the definition of productivity. In my view, productivity describes the most direct way to achieve a desired result. It means, responding to a request with a direct action towards producing the desired result : eg: "open the window", should cause someone to open the window. Conversely, when I ask Microsoft to do something , I usually get a response in the form of a question. " Are you sure that's what you want me to do?" or perhaps, " Do you have the authority to request that ?" Very often, on the internet, I get an even more non-productive response. " Sorry, we cannot find that site" or another inane response is , " We notice you are using an ad blocker. We'd like to give you the opportunity to remove it or disable it so we can feed you the kind of crap you put the ad blocker in place to prevent ." Am I wrong in assuming that Microsoft is asking me to remove my,"productivity" measures so they can waste more of my time with unsolicited sales pitches instead of doing what I asked them to do?
Edge problem fix in High Contrast.
I use Windows 10 in the High Contrast, yellow on black theme almost exclusively. On certain apps this causes minor problems, e.g. my Excel spreadsheet didn't print out darkly enough. On a hunch, I switched back to the "normal" black on white theme and it printed out perfectly. When I'm using Edge in the HC theme, on certain websites, e.g. L.L.Bean, Edge abruptly shuts down when I try to enter data. This stops happeniong when I switch back to the "normal" theme. This does suggest that HC and Normal need to be better synchronized (?) I hope this proves helpful

Preventing Shut Down From the Sign-in Screen
In order to prevent users from using the sign-in screen to shut down whether users are signed in or not, you can use Local Security Policy or the REG command. Here's how: Method 1: Local Security Policy NOTE: This method only applies to Windows 10 Pro. 1. Press WINDOWS LOGO + R. 2. Type "secpol.msc" (without the quotes) and press ENTER. 3. Double-click Local Policies. 4. Click Security Options. 5. Scroll down until you see Shutdown: Allow system to be shut down without having to log on and double-click it. 6. Click Disabled and click OK. Method 2: The REG command WARNING: Incorrectly using the registry editing tool can cause serious, system-wide problems that may require you to reinstall Windows 10 to correct them. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the incorrect use of the registry editing tool can be solved. Use this tool at your own risk. 1. Press WINDOWS LOGO + R. 2. Type "cmd" (without the quotes) and press CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER. 3. Provide confirmation or type in the password if you see the User Account Control dialog box. 4. Type REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v shutdownwithoutlogon /t REG_DWORD /d 1 and press ENTER. 5. Type EXIT and then press ENTER. Now, whenever you press WINDOWS LOGO + L or you're not signed in yet, the Power icon that normally appears at the bottom-right corner of the screen will not be seen.

Large tiles, small tiles, or no tiles? What do you prefer?
Do you use tiles on your device, or do you prefer the start menu without tiles? If you use tiles, do you customize them, such as the size? Personally, I like to make different groups for productivity and entertainment. - Brandon C, Services Advisor from a Microsoft Store
Artificial Intelligence? Bring it on!
Some people I have spoken with are concerned about the rise and usage of 'artificial intelligence' in their daily lives. The thought of 'connectivity and integration' appears to be the nub of their concerns. I respect these views; however, my own view is very different. Artificial intelligence are algorithms that have intuitive code embedded in the source programs. Nothing really complicated in that. The more we inculcate AI in our computing devices, the more we can utilise 'machine power'. So here is my challenge to Microsoft - bring it on ladies and gentlemen, bring it on - let this community test the AI computing power and even suggest their own ideas on maximising AI on their devices. The recent new build of Windows 10 with the enhancements in assistive technologies are fantastic - it is possible to improve on this current offering. Just my #PoV. As a follow-on to my post, I understand that a vigorous antibiotic has been designed in the United States using AI - so cool 😎 The field and practice of medicine is probably one of the many fields that will benefit using AI. 😀
