Can the Photo's app performance issue be "high severity"?
I was thinking about what was causing my surface pro 7 to have a static issue on the top right of the device, I think this is where the CPU is located, and I had two clues in which caused the device to malfunction with a excessive static and fan issue. -Photos app, this app has severe CPU Drain, it's completely unreasonable for it take 100% of the CPU, and the basic form of the app didn't have this issue, whoever optimized it needs to update it again with strict performance and battery life fixes. I'm thinking this app specifically takes soo much performance, it almost renders the device susceptible to internal damage, with the surface pro 7 the i7 can get quite hot, and such the fan blows. I'm wondering this has something to do with the overall usage -General Bad Motherboard, Some intel motherboards may have a bad CPU, the first one laptop I got had a issue in which a screen test would appear showing the colors RGB, and etc. Soo, is it possible that I can classify the performance of the photo's app, aka the new one as high severity? or is it just intel turbo boost that needs to be somehow turned off?
Lock/Login screen - select account / set default account
On the first screen (well, after I entered my Bitlocker PIN ;-)) the account I use most is listed last in the left hand corner, and not the default account. I always have to select it using the mouse (or touch). I would like to use my keyboard (e.g. up/down arrows) to select the account I want to sign in with. Also, I would like to have the most or last used account selected by default (or have a way to configure it somewhere in the settings). The device I use is my personal laptop, it is just that I have multiple accounts on it for different purposes.

Latest update "broke" my Surface Pro 3
After installing the latest update my Surface Pro 3 went haywire. Windows for any/all apps were resizing and or closing themselves spontaneously. The caret/cursor was flying all over the place. Apps that had settings e.g. a metronome app, would reset all on its own. Thankfully, I was able to revert back to the previous build. So, WTF?
Yes! How do I know what my pin is when I sat up windows actually I don't remember setting one up. And when I had a camera I set up a face to log in. And that picture is still being the log in but since the new update to 2004 the picture is to big I can't click some parts of it to log in so I hit forgot pin then I get a box for a code then I hit cancel and windows lets me in. But this is very frustrating how can I just go back to logging in by a password and that picture goes away or don't use nothing and just log in?

Large tiles, small tiles, or no tiles? What do you prefer?
Do you use tiles on your device, or do you prefer the start menu without tiles? If you use tiles, do you customize them, such as the size? Personally, I like to make different groups for productivity and entertainment. - Brandon C, Services Advisor from a Microsoft Store
is it necessary to use Outlook as the default email client?
I keep getting the following "error message" after startup of my Windows 10 desktop system: "Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please run Outlook and set it as the default mail client." I have 2 email accounts that work just fine without Outlook being installed. Why do I need to install Outlook?
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
