I can't add any Androids Bluetooth device to play games.
Hello, I can't find any android phones Bluetooth in the add a device option. Even I can't find the setting of my PC's Bluetooth. I need to know whether my PC's Bluetooth is discover-able or not to the other devices. Anyways, my problem is I can't find any Bluetooth device in my PC. It's not showing any device name, though my androids Bluetooth is already on and connectable to other PC. How can I connect to my androids Bluetooth to this PC? How can I add a device to my PC's Bluetooth? How can I understand my PC's Bluetooth is discover-able to other devices or not? Thank You
What do you use for your desktop background? Lock screen?
What do you use for your wallpapers? I've been using Bing Desktop, which changes your desktop background every day to the lovely pictures provided by Bing (they also do the daily pictures on your Lock Screen before you log in). I would say many users I see (I work in a Microsoft Store as a Services Advisor) usually have some place they went on vacation or a picture of their family. I've even seen some people have a slideshow as their background, to change to different pictures on an interval.

Chromebook with Microsoft Office (not 365)
My uncle is pretty old (over 70) and is used to Win 7 that is no longer going to be supported. He does not accept change well. I was considering getting him a Chromebook and adding a permanent copy of Office 2016 (1 time purchase) or similar. Any recommendations?
The great dilemma.
Over many years, starting with DOS, I have seen operating systems come and go. When they do, forums like this always throw up the views of lovers and haters. Unbalanced views are the main reason I stay away from social media in general, because I try to look past my own narrow view of what is best. The world turns, not about me, but about every user and their diverse needs. In my world, computers do something useful like engineering calculation or photo manipulation. Things I couldn't do realistically or creatively without one. In the days of DOS, a computer did amazing things for me. I wrote software that designed and plotted timber frame homes. Something way ahead of what most companies at the time had to work with. Windows arrived on the scene and was more trouble than it was worth, to me, being hampered by a graphical interface that served no practical purpose. The mouse was the most useful advance of the time, back then. We all hate change when we have to face learning a different way of doing something that we did perfectly well before. As I saw it, newer versions of windows added many different ways of doing the same thing. Another unnecessary distraction because those changes bloated the interface making it harder to work quickly. I could still revert to DOS, (no I couldn't, actually) or an earlier OS like my favourite Win 7. Why don't I, probably for the same reason as those who have progressed to Win 10, latest update version. We hope we will discover something new and exciting in it. Sadly, we don't make that discovery, but we do still upgrade and chase that foolish illusion. I can't help myself and I doubt anyone else can, either. What I also see in these advancements is the challenge Microsoft (and Apple) have. How to invent a new wheel, one that looks better than the old round one and does all the things their own advertising agents think customers desperately want. The customer, like me, seems to be the problem. Stop using what we don't need.
No Dark Mode File Explorer on Work PC
I am a huge fan of everything dark mode on my P.C. My personal has everything dark, even the file explorer folders. However, on my work P.C. that is not the case. I cannot make this setting dark. Is this because my system is administered by the organization?
What one piece of advice would you give to a new user?
Say someone had never used Windows before, what piece of advice would you give to them knowing they are starting from scratch? As someone who works as a Services Advisor in a Microsoft store, I'd personally make sure they knew that the left click is for selection of items and the right click will (usually) give you a menu with more options. I see a lot of new users struggle with that.
Do you use Timeline to maintain your work history?
How many of you utilize Timeline to keep track of your work? I use it on my device to see what documents I was working with on a specific day, and what information I might have been referencing with Edge. I can even keep track of projects in Visual Studio, allowing me to look back at all different types of work I've done. - Brandon C, Services Advisor from Microsoft Stores
