I would so appreciate a solution to this. I am on my email constantly, and since Tuesday I cannot send nor receive emails. I don't know what I did nor how to fix it. Would so appreciate any suggestions. I have Windows 10, Google, and Outlook Express....
Has anyone used the new PowerToys?
I'll preface this by saying I work inside of a retail store for Microsoft. I know we have a diverse range of users here on Windows Community. Was wonder if anyone has used the new PowerToys? For those not in the know, it's an application developed by Microsoft that includes some very handy utilities. It includes some cool stuff like the ability to bulk rename files and a shortcut guide for all of the handy Windows Key + [Button] shortcuts. The .msi installation file can be grabbed from our Github (Or at this link if you don't know how to get there https://github.com/microsoft/PowerToys/releases )
Problem Printing Word Document
l have been printing the same word document for years with no trouble. It still prints from my old laptop HP OMEN with Windows 10, to my old printer HP Envy7640. I have just tried to print the same document from a surface go 2 in Windows 10 s mode, using word to my HP Envy 7640. It won't print. Word says there is an error with my margins. quick fix is to print as PDF file then print the PDF file using my HPsmart App to my printer. Anyone know why the file won't print normally from word on the surface go 2? I know word uses the printer driver to work out margins but could this error be anything to do with s mode? Apart from that the surface go 2 is brilliant. I am using the basic model and so far it handles all my basics well. Good job Microsoft: Wish I had one of these at school in the 60's. Wouldn't it be great if every school could give one of these to everyone at school. I'm actually writing this with a pen just like I did before l left school. The more we advance the more we stay the same.
MS store bug in 20h1
I found a possible bug in the MS store for Windows 10 2004. I checked for updates, apps got updated. But when checking again, it updated again. Goes around in circles. Created a new user account twice but same issue. Can someone ask the team to check it out?

When you update, why do you change all my settings?
Every time I get an update to Windows, I have to reset all my options, you have forced me to use only your products, and that is NOT my choice. I have had to spend hours re-entering all my settings and my passwords (I have over 300 different passwords), and when I do an update, I have to re-enter everyone. It seems you could either get the updates tested before you release them, or at least give us a choice if we want to update (and after spending hours re-setting my settings and passwords, I think you know I would choose not to update!!) I not only have to do this to my comupter, but my husbands also.
I can't scan to the computer from the printer
After scanning a lot recently with out any problem, now the message comes up -"the scanner is in use or unavailable ( E1460 - B 305". I have tried a few things without any success such as : uninstalling the scan software and then re install, checking the connections and switching everything off, unplugging the printer and then after a minute reconnect the printer and turn back on. The computer is an Acer desktop with Windows 10 and the printer in an Epson XP - 8500 (printer and scanner ). I am still able to print from computer files as normal. Any advise/ideas would be much appreciated. Pete V
Cannot Completely Disable Password on Wakeup
I have tried every solution everywhere on the internet to make it so windows NEVER asks for my password, and although it is, in theory, NOT supposed to ask for my password anymore, ever, it still does in *one* circumstance. I have changed the settings so it is not to require a password after waking from sleep, and that works in every instance except for when the computer sleeps because I closed the laptop lid. If it goes to sleep just from sitting without being used for a while and I start it up again, it does not ask for a password, even if it’s been days or longer. But if I close the lid and then start it up again even just a moment later, it requires a password. I have stopped it from asking a password after starting from a shutdown or a restart, and I have turned it off after starting from sleep in all other cases, but for some reason, disabling password after wakeup does not work when sleep was because of closing the laptop lid. What am I doing wrong? I’ve tried all the different settings options I could find, then I googled and found another one or two, which fixed the last of my problems, except this one. I do not want to EVER have to enter a password. All I use my Windows laptop for is games that I can’t get on my Mac, because I hate windows, but there are some games I really like that require it. I grew up using Windows, so I’m very familiar with it, and I can generally fix anything with it that crops up without needing to go to anyone for help, but this is one thing I just can’t fix. On Mac, you only have to change one or two things to never have to enter a password again except for major updates or downloads, and all the settings are easy to find. On windows, I have had to change many more things, and I’ve really had to dig for the settings to change, and I am STILL having issues. Can someone PLEASE tell me what I’m missing?
