What do you use for working secure with Windows 10 ?
I'm using several security features on my Windows Insiders Build ( Windows 10 Preview fast ring) like logging in with Windows Hello on my Surface and my disk is done with Bitlocker. Keeping Windows Defender up-to-date, Windows Device security like ( Core isolation, Secure Boot, ) Firewall active and using MFA and Two-factor authentication with internet Apps. My Question do you use extra (third party) security features on Windows 10 and what do you miss in Windows 10?
Laptop keeps on sleeping mode
I am having an issue with my laptop that keeps on sleeping mode even though I set the set the timer for every sleep settings to Never. I tried the usual online suggestions but nothing works for me. It will be okay for few weeks but the issue will surface again. There are also no magnetic objects around that may be causing the issue. Thanks in advance for your help!

When do you use the touchscreen on your PC most?
Working in a Microsoft Store, I tend to use my touchscreen a lot because of the convenience. Once I got passed the fingerprints on my screen, I found it to be beneficial in my daily tasks. I am curious, in what ways have you used it?

Stolen tablet - now what
My Surface was stolen yesterday. I logged into Microsoft account and I can see the last location. The thief did not connect it to the internet after stealing it. And as they did not take the charger, it might take a while before they get their hands on a charger and power it on. Now, in the Microsoft account, you have to first Locate and only afterwards you can do the Lock option. This translated to: you have to spend the next days with your eyes glued on the Microsoft Account browser window, hitting refresh continuously, hoping in the 100 hours you will be monitoring non stop this window you will notice the 1-2 minutes your tablet will go online and you get to push the Find button and then the Lock button. I am thus wondering: how could a Microsoft engineer think of such a logic of a security system ? Why even bother to implement such an abomination of a 'security' feature !?
FAO Moderator 😊 Windows 10 Quick Guide (PDF) Feedback #1
Hello What follows, are comments from my two neighbours/friends who read the guide. I preface my comments by indicating that these people are big fans of Windows/Microsoft. 'Most likely we would not read the guide as we are very familiar with Windows'. 'However, as you requested we did read the guide and we think it is very good - we are able to follow the videos and instructions with no trouble whatsoever'. 'We normally flip over to the search engine and ask our question if we get stuck with something - we think this is a better way for us'. 'For visually impaired people, videos will not be that helpful'. 'Keep us in the loop Anne'. 'BTW, we like the new Edge - very fast on our new Surface devices'. So Moderator 😊 - this is the feedback from my friends who are Windows fans 👏. I will leave all the other feedback on this platform as soon as I have received it. Keep well and regards to the Windows Teams 🤩
Google browser hijacked by Microsoft
As of yesterday, Microsoft has hijacked my downloaded Google browser on my 7 month old Surface Pro X - it had to be done in the latest update. As soon as I try to open it, the REAL Google screen shows up for .5 of a second, then I am auto redirected to “gooogle.com” (one too many “o’s) (a VERY BAD FAKE looking Google) then quickly to Bing, if you type in anything to search. Is this even legal? It’s my computer, no matter who makes it, and I should be able to use whatever browser I want. Sounds like a class-action lawsuit, similar to the one against Apple when they were using new Updates to slow the older phone models down so people would buy new ones. I am also greatly offended that they would actually think I wouldn’t notice! Do you SEE my email address? I feel violated in the strangest way.
