Which Microsoft Defender feature(s) really annoys you?
I'm looking forward to know your reactions regarding the annoying feature(s) of Microsoft Defender, if you have. The one I hate is Defender scanning the dead virus files which have been removed, but cached in Protection History. I had to deal with a stupid PUP for 3 months because Defender constantly gave me fake alerts regarding the dead thing. :(
Adding an warning App to Laptop or PC.
Many of us with Laptops and PCs go through issues like updates and cyber attacks, errors and corruption issues. Many of us have been away from out devices when something happened. Could Microsoft add an app to all of their window devices that could send a warning alert to a cell phone or other device to let us know that something is happening? If so, could that app be used to shut down to go into safe mode to help a PC or laptop remotely to prevent further damage?

When do you use the touchscreen on your PC most?
Working in a Microsoft Store, I tend to use my touchscreen a lot because of the convenience. Once I got passed the fingerprints on my screen, I found it to be beneficial in my daily tasks. I am curious, in what ways have you used it?
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.
Microsoft Anniversary Rewards Points
Just a shout out to the good folks at Microsoft, I just received my 500 Anniversary Points through the Microsoft Rewards program and wanted to take a minute to Thank-You for them. I play the Microsoft Rewards every day and Never miss a day. Great Job Microsoft 😊 How Many Others Play The MS Rewards? Like/Dislike?
Can no longer write to files in my home Documents
My files in my home Document are no longer writable. I've suspected Dropbox, Bitdefender and Windows Account, but am unable to fix. If I try to write to a file in \Users\me\Documents it says: You'll need to provide administrator permission ... So if I chose 'Continue', it says You need permission to perform this action. You require permission from me-DESKTOP\me to make changes I am logged in to me-DESKTOP as me. I am the Administrator and only user on this box and for years all has been fine, until recently. Another interesting find is that I seem to only have this problem with a compressed folder. I cannot Uncompress it either, 'An error occurred applying attributes to the file: Access is denied". When I open Properties, Security, Advanced I can see that the Owner is me (me-DESKTOP\me) and if I click on the 'Change' button NOTHING happens except the Change button becomes grayed out. If I do the same steps in SAFE mode, I can actually change ownership to me, but when I boot back to regular mode the problem returns. I've disabled my anti virus, uninstalled dropbox but continue to have the issue. I've found that if I copy the files to a new location they become writable. I also have another weird issue where I am regularly being advised by Windows that my Windows Account needs to be updated and opens a dialog asking me to login with an old email address that I no longer have. I have gotten a reset code (on an alternate email address) and updated my account to use a new email address but when I get the notification that my windows account needs to be updated I just repeat - as in, just read this paragraph over and over and over.
"Win 10 nearing end of service" mean?
I got a message on my home screen today that states, "your version of Windows 10 is nearing the end of service. Restart & Install the most recent version of Windows to get the latest security updates and support" . What does this mean? Am I going to have to start paying for this after I originally purchased it or something? Please advise. Debbie K

Constant changing of my choice of web browser.
Why do I not have control of my web browser? Every time I reset to Chrome some 'other powers' decide to change it back to Edge. I feel that MY choice is taken away from me.
