How to get the Windows 10 October 2020 Update
The Windows 10 October 2020 Update - also known as Windows 10, version 20H2 - is now available! Windows program manager Mabel Gomes explains how easy it is to update your device and access all the latest features to help you stay protected and productive. Keep in mind that you may not see the "Download and install" option on your device, as we are slowly throttling up availability over the coming weeks. In addition, your device might have a compatibility issue for which we will apply a safeguard hold until we are confident that you will have a good update experience.

"Win 10 nearing end of service" mean?
I got a message on my home screen today that states, "your version of Windows 10 is nearing the end of service. Restart & Install the most recent version of Windows to get the latest security updates and support" . What does this mean? Am I going to have to start paying for this after I originally purchased it or something? Please advise. Debbie K
Surface Pro 7 and Squarespace - incompatible?? :-(
Hello, I hope someone can help... I purchased a Surface Pro 7 last week and am currently trying to update my website in Squarespace. I can log in, but it won't let me edit text or recognize clicks. Whaaattt?! Is Surface Pro 7 incompatible with Squarespace? Do I have to hold on to and use my old chromebook to make these changes? This is a big reason I upgraded my technology! I hope someone can help. I hope it's just me and there's a solution I'm missing. :-) thanks in advance! Nicole
Microphone in Teams
Has anyone else suddenly had their microphone stop working in teams on their laptop? It works when in anything else, just no-one can hear me in Team calls. All the settings are set to allow access, and nothing's changed from when i used it the day before. I've looked at the support pages but have already tried any suggestions there. thanks, Susan
Can't adjust screen brightness.
Helllo. I recently updated my Laptop with the latest version of Windows 10. Everything works fine EXCEPT the screen brightness. Earlier I could adjust my screen brightness, but now no matter how much I increase or decrease the level in the control panel, the actual brightness level remains the same, and I think it's at the highest level, since the battery is going done by a scary 10% in 20 minutes. I am currently working on my laptop wearing sunglasses. Please Helpp ! P.S My laptop has got two Display Adapters, Radeon Graphics and Intel Graphics, and I've tried updating both the drivers, and it says that you've already got the best drivers for your device, after searching on the internet.
