I've been mainly using Bing for the past 3 months on Windows
I've been mainly using Bing search engine in the last 3 months. this is my honest opinion. I enjoy Bing more than Google because Bing has a better layout, Bing has so much more features, like when I want to reverse image search, It shows me the name of the person in the picture or in cases where there is a text in the picture, it uses OCR (Optical Character Recognition) to let me copy the text from the pic and automatically search for it. Bing also gives me lots of categories in image searches. I did a side by side comparison of a subject just yesterday. in Google there was no categories to suggest but Bing suggested lots of categories at top, they were so specific that I was surprised how far it went. Bing has Microsoft Rewards and what it means is that you get points when you do normal searches, you don't need to go to Bing Rewards dashboard to do any additional tasks, but if you want you can and get even more points. These points accumulate and once they reach a certain amount, you can redeem them for a wide range of prizes. I usually redeem them monthly to get free Xbox game pass which I can use to play all news AAA games on PC and Xbox. so basically I always and forever have free game subscription. Bing is integrated into Cortana on Windows 10 which means I don't have to open a browser to type anything, I simply press Windows key and start typing and it shows me search results, when I click on a result, it opens it on the new Edge browser which is my default browser and it's also better than Google Chrome for a long list or reasons. (de-googled browser, Tracking Prevention, Collections, Reading view and all of its features, Read Aloud with custom natural voice etc etc..). Bing also gives me peace of mind knowing that my data and privacy is being handled by a company that revolves around providing services and not data mining. Bing has really and i mean REALLY improved in the last few years and that's why I'm writing this because I'm simply impressed.
Setting default action when connecting a USB drive
In my Windows 10 (latest update of Pro at home office), I am prompted each time I insert a USB flash memory drive about what to do. In the past, the selection dialog included a check box to set the selected action as default. There is none shown now. I can't find a way to set such an option.
Why does Windows slow down overtime?
A year back when I got my pc it was all snappy and stuff now when I try to open my notifications panel, file explorer or even right clicking to correct a word that was spell checked everything takes a solid second or two. A lot of people complain about this and windows updates, so what's the deal Microsoft? What are your people opinions on this issue? Does your PC also slow down overtime? Do you even notice this or do you just roll with it? Do you think Microsoft will ever fix this issue?
If you are WFH, what is your setup/tools used?
With the Covid-19 Pandemic outbreak, many of us are working from home this days. This new challenge made us do some changes to get the job done. If you are WFH, what is your setup/tools used? I'm using one laptop (Windows 10), one extra monitor, Microsoft Surface and Mobile Phone. Regarding software, Corporate VPN (Always use one...), Office 365 and specific bussiness applications. For mettings, Microsoft Teams and some times, Skype. Please share your thoughts and add some suggestions/ideas on how we can improve all this experience! Thanks!
Webcam is not working with Microsoft Teams
Hi, I upgraded my windows 7 to windows 10. My webcam was not working with my upgraded windows and black screen was coming. I managed to fix that issue using installing an optional update in "Windows update" section. But now that i am opening Microsoft Teams for any meeting, my webcam does not work there and same black screen is showing over there too. My web cam was working fine with Microsoft Teams in windows 7, it is working fine in "Camera" App in windows 10 but it is not working with Microsoft Team. I checked Microsoft Teams settings and my web cam driver is showing there but in preview or in meeting, the camera is showing all Black. I checked my camera privacy settings and all enabled. Please help in fixing this issue. Thanks
How many people wish that win10 has that one thing.
This talks in regards to the animations of windows 10, a focus on a user input settings app, a better "What's new" orinetation, or just a fix to make it work right. Or a removal of the automatic "Remove previous versions of windows" Honestly who still thinks that is a good idea?
Transfer Photos to PC
Since getting Windows 10 I have been having trouble transferring photos from my camera and I phone to my desk top. There must be an easy way as it was very easy with Windows 7.
I am using a Lenova desktop at home with the latest Windows versions. I use Windows Defender. When I check the status everything is okay except the virus protection. It has an x and says my virus protection is being handled by me company. This is a personal computer and is no way affiliated with a company. How do I enable virus protection? Thanks Stan
Clean Install and still running into problems.
When ever Windows came out I run into problems on the regular. Every Clean install is from a CD or USB and I downloaded it that day. I just downloaded on 4/2/21. After 2 days of running it becomes unstable. How? 1. I run a program called BOINC "the reason I run it 24/7". And the Project it's running is Asteroids@home for GPU work. Windows runs fine for nearly 2 days and then my computer is laggy. After I suspend all GPU work... It's fine. After restarting my computer and start running the SAME GPU work. It's fine now. That's not all... 2. Taskbar crashes, well... disappears and reappears and some programs that run in the background that put icons on the bottom right are not running "meaning not there anymore. It loves taking out EVGA Precision X, X OC, X 16 of any version. 3. Can't lower resolution lower then 4K. When lowing it from Windows settings is says it's at 1080 but my TV still says 4K. Games can't lower it either. Gams that don't support it I can't play "exp: Bejeweled 3". It did for a while on older versions of Win 10. 4. HDR does or doesn't work. I have an HDR TV. Certain games will enable HDR? Even though the game doesn't support HDR. 5. Devices randomly disconnect and reconnect because I hear the audio prompt and/or popup notice. 6. Keyboard stop working in Feedback Hub but backspace works just fine. After switching from Sticky Notes to Feedback Hub it started working again and it did it again. It's been 4 days now. The only thing I didn't do is install a Windows 10 DVD drivers that came with the MoBo. To see if that was the issue. No. X99 MoBo P.S. On another computer on an HP all in one here APU video drivers stopped running and had to reinstall it to get it back up and running. I wondered why the back light would not go out.
Impressive Update To Microsoft Edge Appearance
Hello Windows Community, I really enjoy the New Small Transparent Icons on the home page of the Microsoft Edge Browser Version 85.0.564.44 (Official Build) (64-bit). I'm referring to the Quick Links Icons, toward the center of the page. (IMO) these new transparent Icons add a Much Cleaner Appearance to the Home screen. I sure hope this is what Microsoft has in mind for the new soon to come start menu In Windows 10. 🤔😊 What are your thoughts? Likes - Dislikes ?
