Why were Cortana and Search separated into different icons?
Prior to the Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version 1903), there was one icon. It allowed me to search and access my Cortana interests. Now, there are two different icons. The Search icon allows me to search, and that's it. The Cortana icon allows me to see my interests from Cortana. My question is: Why do we now have separate icons?
Keeping current day streak alive
I log onto Bing every day and complete all my daily chores, yet for the past 6 months, it seems that I get advised that I have broken my consecutive day streak, despite getting on Bing every day, and doing all the tasks every day. Has anyone else in the community experienced this, and how do you address it?
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!

Microsoft screensaver changes when I don't want it to
So I get some nice scenery picture. I say I like it. 2-3 days later it's gone but I'm not tired of it. Can I somehow tell Microsoft to not change so fast? Or can I somehow say when I'm ready for an image to change? And why, when I've said "no, thanks" to pretty much every 'city' image, do they keep showing me downtown MegaTown shots?? Thanks for any advice or assistance!
