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.

Crash with loss of restorepoint
After installing Build 19619.1000 a few weeks ago, I had a crash today. Windows rebooted and everything was brought back to November 2019, so everything between then and now yesterday is gone, also my restore point. Can anyone help me with this please. Thanks in advance
Edge Beta / Office not working on the latest insider build
I was just finished installing latest insider build of Windows 10 (Build 19613). My only problem is that the Edge beta (Chromium) doesn't open at all same with my Office 365 programs. I tried reinstalling both applications, updating to latest version, restarting pc but it doesn't work at all.
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
How do you take screenshots?
Did you know with the Windows 10 May 2019 Update, you can set the PrtScn button on your keyboard to open the Snip & Sketch app? I find this to be the fastest way to take and share a screenshot. How do you take your screenshots? -Joe, Services Advisor at Microsoft
Where can I learn more about the Event Log?
I have figured out the basics in Event Log, but I want to be good at it. Where can I find what the error codes mean? And, how to fix them? The link you always get to help you just take me too a search page. Most of the times I dont even know what to search for. This is probably a lot of information for your engineers, for me it just makes me feel like an idiot: Microsoft.Windows.ShellExperienceHost_10.0.18999.1_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy SID (S-1-15-2-155514346-2573954481-755741238-1654018636-1233331829-3075935687-2861478708). This security permission can be changed with the Component Services administrative tool. Component service I get, but it doesn't help me very much when I don't have the slightest idea of what to change. It would be so much easier to provide relevant and good reports in Feedback Hub if I could find a way to learn more. Sincerely LokePus

If there any MS tool that can parse CBS.log and DISM.log?
The DISM and SFC commands are one of the most powerful and best tools users can use to fix tons of issues with their system. However, even I, as a "poweruser" Should NOT be in powershell and run commands. Nor should users be in the regisitry, which Microsoft suggestest as a fix to certain problems. Microsoft gives the correct info. Users should NOT touch the registry, EVER! Nor the Powershell for that matter. Why? Because you need to be a mechanic to fix a Tesla car. One mistake and you can ruin big parts of windows. Win 10 is FANTASTIC at leaving logs! However, users dont not know what they mean, should NOT LOOK at them! It will only sorry people, and they could damage their system. Question: Is there any tool that can parse the Dism.log, CBS.log, update.log (And do the powershell commands to make the log). Also, I am lacking a tool that can check your Image against .xlm lists in MoSetup, "Waasmedic" and the live kernal reports. These tools should generate a report AND offer fixes that a normal user can understand. Before the user does anything with the tool. The tool creates a system restore. EASY. - FixWin 10 does this. - UWT 4, does this. - CCleaner have started to offered it now (DONT EVER USE CCLEANER TO CLEAN THE REGISTRY IN WIN 10! Why is Microsoft lacking tools like these, when the commands and features the tools uses, are Microsofts own. But in powershell command mode. There are 3:e party tools, but I do NOT want to use them. Microsoft needs a tool that can parse logs, Use ALL DISM/SFC/Repair-image and offer option to FIX things. Report "nothing is wrong. Just to prove I am not just negative. Questions to MS devs/techs: 1. Microsoft dev/techs: Doesn't running "SFC /SCANNOW" 3 times in a row, in a powershell as an administrator not Fix A LOT of problems? 2. As do cmds like "analyseStore", "repair-image" and many other COMMANDS? 3. There is no command to check WHERE your image is? CheckHealth from -Source-. needs you to point where the image is.
Beta Version Cortana 👍
I was sceptical of Cortana prior to April 2020. 🙄 I found this feature not very helpful (for me). With Beta Cortana which is now on my device I am more positive. The tests that I ran this morning on the whole produced good outcomes. 😀 This Beta version still has some way to go before I could really make use of this feature. However on the positive side, Windows has made significant upgrades to this feature - way to go Windows Team. 😀 ✅ I will continue to beta test.
