Microsoft Store = WORTHLESS !!!
I am stunned that after spending HOURS talking to someone at Microsoft and re-installing Microsoft 10, I still cannot get something as simple as the calculator app!!! I have read hundreds (literally) of complaints on this same issue. WTF!! Pathetic and a waste of time. Maybe I need a divorce from Microsoft and go back to a Mac.
Update ver. 2004 Let's hear about your problems.
There are always tricks and hacks to bypass some unwanted updates and their side effects, and the previous update made the sound volume go up to 80% ,this time as well 80%. Some of you experience it too, and for those like me using headphones it's no joke, especially that the level i listen to music etc. is seldom beyond 6%. (Feedback has been sent by me many weeks ago.) The 2004 version finally prevents me from using the old search, where the results get updated as i type in the file explorer search box, and ever since i was ok with the search being slow or not showing all results, it was ok as long i did not have to take additional steps in order to get to any results. As of today i am literally forced to perform one more action in order to obtain the search results, which as most of you know, is by either clicking on the arrow in the file explorer search box, or hitting the enter key on keyboard. I may mention the tool i found today that is not the best, but is not missing any file out of the search results, is fast & allows a lot customization. The name of that search tool is 'Everything.exe' and can be integrated in the shell menu as well as in the file explorer drop down menu or mouse right click. This thing can literally search for any file and despite being set to use index created by windows search, it shows all files. After clicking on 'rebuild' which creates index from scratch the 'Everything.exe' did still show all files....so a 3rd party executable is capable of something widnows after all these years is not. This is just sad. The previous update asked me about location preferences and so on. Why do i have to select same check boxes each time? Now the last thing would be Cortana, which i disabled, but after the update not only the cortana symbol appeared on the taskbar, but cortana got enabled. Apparently Windows is about productivity, yet updates will not be complete unless i confirm some settings, and the search takes more time. Productivity?
MS Edge Version 90.0.818.42 Official Build "Question-?"
Hello Everyone, I have a question about the new Version of MS Edge 90.0.818.42 (Official Build) (64-bit) running on my Windows 10 Home Version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.928) with all current updates applied. The thing is, in Edge Under Settings/Profile/Personal Info, there is a list of Autofill information that Edge uses to speed up filling out forms on the net. I have turned this feature OFF (Just Now) the "Save and fill personal info" and it no longer suggests the information there. However! How do I "Delete" the information still visible there under this setting???... I have tried "Resetting Edge" and almost everything I could think of to try. With NO luck. What am I missing?... I know it's probably something very simple that I'm just not seeing👀 Thank-You For Any Help You Can Offer ______________________________________________________________ I Found It! 😲 If you have this same problem go to : 1-Clear browsing data 2-Choose what to clear 3-Autofill form data (Includes Form and cards) That's it 😊 Enjoy!

can't see albums in the MS Photos App
I use the Microsoft Photos app from the store a great deal. I have lost the ability to see my albums in the photos app. They are in the web OneDrive and prior to last week they appeared when I wanted to see "all" in the photos app. This enables the user to add photos to albums and then have it uploaded to OneDrive. I'm of the opinion that installing a Windows 10 S0H2 update, KB5001330 may have caused this problem, when I installed it on 4/14/2021. At the same time I've lost the ability to see photo albums in the Desktop OneDrive app. I know the photos app is closely integrated with OneDrive and I suspect something has caused the two apps to not be in sync. Are others who use these apps experiencing the same problems? Does anyone have an idea of what I can do to get the photos app and the Desktop OneDrive app working properly? Ken84

I'm looking to gift a Windows 10 S to Pro tablet and have read the good and bad about switching. I've read the articles, watched the videos, still don't have to T-shirt though. If you've done this what was your experience, and was it worth it? To others in here, not to hurt your feelings but if you haven't done it please don't bother replying, as I've said I've watched the videos and read the articles. Thanks
