How to personalize the lock screen more
I want to know if I can personalize my lock screen. I want to have weather summary, a mini-calendar, my to-do list, etc. accessible from the lock screen. It would make things a lot easier. Can I? If I can, How?

I wonder why DHCP broke, stopped working, fails after 1909
I did a windows update/upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and it installed 1909. Once I completed the install/upgrade most things worked except the network driver would not obtain an IP address via DHCP. Once I manually set it up the network works but I would love for it to get its address dynamically so I don't have to set up another reservation. :) Any thoughts regarding this?
What is your Favorite Cortana Command?
You might have used Cortana in Windows 10 or in your device. You could have a conversation with Cortana and have a chat with her. I am wondering what is your favorite command in Cortana? To give you some hint, some of them are: Do I need a Coat? Do I need an Umbrella? Tell me a joke Sing me a song Where am I? Where is the nearest restaurant? ...
Pick and Choose Update Packages
Please, it would be a life saver for many if users could pick and choose update packages. I had a big headache today uninstalling an update that led my Lenovo desktop to blue screening right at sign in and when I want to restart, it crashes immediately. Worse, I couldn't enter safe mode with my USB recovery drive because the PC didn't detect it. Fortunately, after trying each single USB ports I could boot into my USB drive and uninstall the update. Oh, there should be an easier way to access safe mode too. I remember with Windows 7 there was such a thing like boot menu. Yep, that one less second at boot costs me hours of productivity. Simply genius...
I just bought an HP laptop and want to play poker on Bovada.com. I have to download their poker software. After I click SAVE it doesn't start downloading. It stays at 0% forever. My computer meets the requirements, Windows 10 and such. Any help?
Shoutout for Microsoft Teams 🤩
We are more than aware of the ongoing situations with CoVid19. ☹ Many people have been confined to their homes or, self isolating for their health protection. For those people who are confined (like a contributor to this platform) as an example, they are able to carry out their job responsibilities from home because many of us live in a connected world. This could not have been possible without the advancement of computer technologies to the level as they are today. Just imagine this kind of situation 20 years ago?! Having just been contacted by an individual who is working under these conditions, they expressed the opinion and I quote 'thank goodness I am able to do this'. My colleague is using Windows 10. So Microsoft please accept this person's thanks. Guys you are cosmic 😃 and so are the people using this platform, offering their help and advice to other contributors - co cool .
Is there a way to wait to install an update
I have tried to turn off windows updates but even when I go in and disable them, they still manage to turn themselves off. I only find out when I got to turn off my laptop and my options are update and restart or update and shut down. I like to be there when it's updating and sometimes I want to go to bed. So what are my options ....I have to sit there and wait for it to update. Why can't they give me an option to ignore update for now and shut down normally. I feel like I have no control over my computer updating. On my apple devices it tells me when there is an update available and I can decide when it's a good time for me to update. Is there some way around this? I'm in the market for a new laptop and I am seriously wondering if I really want to get another windows laptop because of the lack of control over the updates.
Ability to create Local Account Removed from OOBE in 1903
Yesterday I attempted to set up my PC but during the New PC setup the computer refused to allow me to set up the computer with a local account, and it forced me to log-in to my Microsoft account to set up the PC. I even called MS support and told this was an intentional change and the only way around it was to login to the MS account, and then remove the MS account after I got into windows. I was able to work around this by temporarily disconnect my house's internet, and at that point it allowed me to create a local account, but it's absurd that the first time set up is now FORCING people to set up a MS account linked to their computer. I understand that MS wants to put pressure on people to do it that way, but TOTALLY REMOVING the option to create a local account is a low blow. I often reset my PC to help clear out the junk and get it running fresh, and I prefer to set up my PC as a local account during set up so I can specify what my user folder is named, and get a chance to disable some system apps like Skype that I don't want to run before I log into my MS account. (ps, since I'm not sure if OOBE is a real term or something I made up, it's short for Out Of Box Experience, the first time set up wizard that windows puts you through the first time it boots after installing windows or resetting windows.)
In Cyberpunk Photo Director
All the sudden in Cyberlink Photo Director when I click the Print icon it won't print, it will only say; save file. Even when it is saved to file you still cant print the picture. Nothing has been changed because you can't change Cyberlink Photo Director settings. I have gone to Cyberlink site and there isnt any info about this problem. Mine is version 5 and you cant even message a question because they want to know which version I have from there drop down box and version 5 isnt listed. I uninstalled then reinstalled it yet it is still the same and I use Windows 10 that was already installed. I contacted HP which is my brand and they said since it is a third party app. They cant fix it. Anyway I just wondered if anyone has had the same problem or knew a fix. Thanks, Sidnee
