Know about Windows 10 OS updates through the store app?
I've read a few articles eluding to the fact that we may not be seeing full updates for the entire OS through Windows update. Instead, we would be seeing modules updating through the Microsoft store app. This is great for someone like me with no access to broadband, and I was wondering what everyone knew about it, and if they were interested.
Stolen tablet - now what
My Surface was stolen yesterday. I logged into Microsoft account and I can see the last location. The thief did not connect it to the internet after stealing it. And as they did not take the charger, it might take a while before they get their hands on a charger and power it on. Now, in the Microsoft account, you have to first Locate and only afterwards you can do the Lock option. This translated to: you have to spend the next days with your eyes glued on the Microsoft Account browser window, hitting refresh continuously, hoping in the 100 hours you will be monitoring non stop this window you will notice the 1-2 minutes your tablet will go online and you get to push the Find button and then the Lock button. I am thus wondering: how could a Microsoft engineer think of such a logic of a security system ? Why even bother to implement such an abomination of a 'security' feature !?

looking for the hardware troubleshooter in Win. 10?
hi all: Some people have wondered as to where the hardware troubleshooter is in Windows 10. Microsoft took it out starting from 1809, because it has the lowest usage. One website I found stated that it is not gone, but rather, it is hidden. To use it, please type msdt.exe -id DeviceDiagnostic via cmd (administer privilege). The hardware troubleshooter will appear. Hope this help.
