Nokia Lumia users-success stories upgrading to a new phone?
For Nokia Lumia Windows/Microsoft users needing to upgrade to a new phone, any suggestions, any positive experiences with a new phone in this circumstance? Samsung or Google pixel experience & success stories anyone? Perhaps an I Phone, or a basic phone (abandon smart phones)? Thank you in advance for any success stories - positive experience moving from Nokia Lumia to a new phone.
File Explorer very slow!!
When I open file explorer it scans the C: drive. When I single click a file, it scans the C: drive. If I open or modify a file (change the name) it scans the C: drive. These scans vary from 5 seconds to 20 seconds, EVERY TIME. I searched Windows defrag with the start menu search button, it brings me to optimize drives. When I run the optimizer, it completes the process in 5 seconds... but i see ZERO change in the performance of my laptop. Secondly, video media I have that used to play smoothly, suddenly plays very choppy. If it does or does not have any relation to the above problem. Thank you, Nick
White / Black screen
Why when I just logged in with my pin before it went to that screen it was a white screen I never seen that happen before. and when I open chrome it blinks for a min black screen. I ran all the test like SFC /scan now before I was gone a bit and it said windows didn't find anything. and I have no viruses. Please give me some insight why this happened.
I'm sure some of you may have noticed, while others may have not, but you can no longer pin websites to the start screen, even by pinning it to your taskbar and dragging to your start screen, it can no longer be done. I've been aware of this, and have working around it, but after this last update....... ok, well we'll leave it at that... I was chatting with Microsoft Tech support this afternoon, and after I finally got them to try and pin a web site to their start screen, they admitted they couldn't do it either. Funny though they had a work around? So here's the work around, and it involve Google Chrome! Open the website you want to pin to your Windows 10 Start Screen in Google Chrome. Yea, you read that right! Once your website is open, click on the three dots located in the upper right hand corner. Scroll down until you sees More Tools. Hover over that and choose Create Shortcut... a pop up will appear where you name your shortcut, and here is where it gets important! You need to check the box that says Open as Window, then click create. Now go back to your start screen and under recently added apps you will see your recently added website. There is one last step. With it there you will not be able to move it around. So while it is in the Recently Added Apps right click and choose Pin to Start Menu. Voila! You're done, and your websites are now back on your start screen. Let's do hope that the boys and girls in Redmond fix this!
Thanks for the help with my New Computer!
I have it up and running! It is taking a little time getting it closer to how I want all the set points configured but I have made progress. No serious compatibility issues, yet hahaha. The i9 9900K is everything I had hoped it would turn out to be ! Linking the 2, GTX 1070 Ti, GPUs with, RTX & SLi, has lined out very nicely. I am hitting the 5 GHz speed with the CPU overclocked with the onboard AI. The Corsair H115i RGB PLATINUM CPU Liquid cooler is the one I finely went with. I did go a little overkill with the 1600 WATT Rosewill HERCULES, power supply but it does what it is meant to do and the deal I found was just right. I am going with a Samsung 250GB 3D NAND M.2 SSD for start up and Optane Persistent Memory for the built in Raid platform. Looking into getting a cooling block for the, 64 GB RAM. At least all 4 sticks are the same. I unlinked my windows 10 pro for workstation from my other PC since it is a single Volume and have it installed on the New PC but it will not activate to original in any of the 4 ways I am aware of and it can only be installed by a commercial Tech but since I have it installed maybe a regular tech can activate it! I love the Cougar, PANZER MAX, Full Case! Over all, I had a blast getting it all worked out to my satisfaction. I still have a long way to go but I am close to what I want. Overcoming the learning curve has been a challenge but I memorized 72,000 words before I became a past master, which gives me an edge on how to proceed on just about any task.
Bad Computer / Bad Boy Part II
In this episode!.. I started this trek because not only because the computer wasn't acting the way it had been, and because certain things, like the Microsoft Printer weren't working at all. Ok, so I went a little nuclear and bombed the entire system! Truthfully I hadn't been that nervous in a while. The last time I decided to do that I took it to my near by Microsoft store at the Chandler Fashion Center Mall, and let them deal with it. Not this time!. I reset the PC, and didn't care about personal files as everything was on OneDrive and an External Drive anyway. The reinstallation of Microsoft 365 went fairly well, with a few exceptions that I'm still clearing up. There were a few other glitches, but again nothing really unsurmountable. The Microsoft Printer came back of course, and here is where I learned something new, or for the first time noticed something. For many years when I've gotten an email that I need to keep, I simply click on Send to OneNote and choose the appropriate folder and away it goes. A real time saver. What I noticed in the Microsoft Printer was that I could print to OneNote for Windows 10, and to Windows 10 Desktop! You talk about time savers! That at least to me is huge! I use Microsoft 365 OneNote Desktop , Microsoft Outlook 365 Desktop, and Microsoft Excel 365 Desktop, and the Microsoft Printer on a daily basis. How I didn't know that that existed in the printer is embarrassing. If you haven't played with it you really should check it, or if you already know about, please humor me and don't make too much fun of me for missing something like that ... LOL

Trying to find a suitable App for video editing
Hello, I am interested in creating film reviews to upload to youtube. I am considering using Adobe apps such as Adobe Premiere or Premiere Rush. However, I am advised to download from the Microsoft store only to ensure the smooth and efficient running of my PC. I can't seem to find apps there that would be as suitable or useful for my purposes. A Microsoft or Google Play version of the Adobe products does not seem to be available, but there are plenty of tutorials and courses for Adobe products. This seems strange. Wondering could anyone help me with this issue. Perhaps there is a suitable app on the Microsoft store I am unaware of. I want to upload film clips with recordings of my own voice reviewing the films.
