How can I eliminate the above noted issue when using "Your Phone" on my windows 10 version 1909. I have asked for and received assistance, remotely, from two (2) Microsoft techs with no results. Am I the only one experiencing this issue? If so, how can I resolve it. My phone is a Note 8. My cotacts do not ontain the "+1" designation.

Redirect a game from MS Store App to a different Drive ?
Hello Community, In the old days when you wanted to install a new game a small window would pop open with a suggested drive and path to where you wanted to install the new game. You could select and accept there suggestion - Or - change the default drive letter to a different drive and path. However in the most current Windows 10 May 2004 build and the most current MS Store App I don't seam to be able to do this simple task. It always goes ahead and installs then to the OS C: drive. I know its probable something I'm missing or overlooking. I'm not a gamer, so I'm kind of at a loss and would really appreciate any Help! you can offer. So my question Is : How do I install a game from MS Store App to a different internal hard drive other than the default OS C: drive?... 🤔 Thank-You In Advance For All Your Help.
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.
Photos app being ridiculously slow
The title speaks for itself, but how do i determine it is so slow? Well, any other program and even other windows apps open any image withing less than blink of an eye. For example, Paint, Paint 3D, Windows Photo Viewer or Photoshop open any images instantly. Does anyone else have that problem? I would like to continue using Photos app for one reason only - it has full dark interface. This issue came to be either with last update or the one before that.
I continuously get print error 0x00000bbb when trying to print any file from my Dell laptop. This happens on both an Epson and HP printer. The printers always test positive so the error is caused by Window 10 and I suspect one or more Windows Update are to blame.

Will You Save Your System or Format it?
Let say you are facing a technical problem in Windows and you have the following options: 1) You could just format and reinstall Windows (e.g. using reset or refresh) and reinstall and recover everything and go back to world. 2) You will work on find and fix the problem and solve it without formatting your Windows. The first one might be easy but you will need to reinstall everything and second one might be time consuming but you won't go for reinstall and recovery process.

Blue/Green Screens 🤔 Part Two
Is there any way, I can apply a sound to a blue/green screen to alert me that of the situation. This would be so helpful to the visually impaired person. I have applied sound when I receive a notification - that is very useful. But I think error screens such blue/green warrants something special - like a sound of crashing musical symbols 🔊 🔔. Something that would immediately grab my attention. On December 28 2019, I experienced a serious interruption of my computer system when Windows was downloading an update. My computer ceased to work and I was unaware of the problem. Being unable to see the screen I inadvertently clicked on an error message which necessitated my having to contact Microsoft that day. I was so fortunate that the engineer on the other end of my link was helpful and very sensitive to my situation. 😊 I ask fellow contributors to take my posting as a serious request for help. The green screen oopsie the other day, heightened my concern. Many thanks and keep well.
