Do you use gestures on your laptop trackpad?
Windows 10 has many options for custom gestures you can use with your laptop's trackpad. By default you can do things like: show the desktop, tab between applications, launch search but you can also customize them. Have you customized any gestures to your liking? -Rob Murray, Cloud Technical Expert at Microsoft.
in place upgrade vs. reinstall
Sometimes, our devices may run into issues that doing the sfc /scannow command or creating a new user account, etc. will not fix the issues. Here are two popular methods to fix problems. 1) in place upgrade: What is an in place upgrade? It is basically reinstalling Windows while we get to keep our files, folders, settings, etc. It basically gives us a fresh couple of the Windows system files. Meaning, we might do the sfc /scannow command and it found corrupt system files that cannot be repaired. The in place upgrade will give us fresh system files. pros: We do not lose any files, folders, settings, etc. when choosing the in place upgrade. cons: When choosing this method, it will take a while to complete. It requires several restart of the device. If the device has a good CPU, etc., then it will be a little quicker but will still take time to complete. p.s. After the in place upgrade is finished, we might have to update few drivers again. Usually, the in place upgrade will revert the newer drivers to the previous ones. Remember, it will create Windows.old. That will take a lot of space. The best way is to go to storage under settings and Storage Sense to delete Windows.old. You can free up over 10GB of temporary files and can regain some C drive disk space. 2) reinstalling Windows 10: What this does is basically reinstalling Windows 10 again. Giving us a fresh start. pros: This method is usually quicker than the in place upgrade. cons: The cons of choosing this method is it wipes out everything. p.s. When choosing this method, I generally only wipe out the C drive but do not wipe out the D drive. If you want to choose this command, I suggest you to copy everything in the desktop or if you have put files, folders, etc. in the C drive to a portable drive. Also, download the bookmark from Edge, Chrome, etc. and save it to a portable drive. It is because after reinstallation of Windows 10, they will be gone.

I think Microsoft is controlling my Computer
I used to be a member of the Windows Insider group, but I have not been active in almost a year... until I started researching Microsoft Windows ;E 5, then I noticed that thea few months ago I was testing software for a client, I was testing/researching Microsoft 365 E5, I tested it for about a month with my client to demonstrate everything that it can do for his company... Since then, I have done a factory reset on my computer, and changed my Microsoft account information, when Windows 10 Home was complete,, I purchased the Upgrade to Pro, I have tried to use bitlocker with problems from the Group Policy telling me that for Security some settings are managed by my system administrator, I am my own system admin. In recent weeks I purchased 2 YubiKey's so that I can use them with either Bitlocker or within windows for better and faster logins... but I have hit another road block and I cant get the Keys to work because some settings are not in my control. Windows Insider group was connected to the business programs... I ended that subscription... I cleaned and reinstalled Windows.. Help Please
