Can't adjust screen brightness.
Helllo. I recently updated my Laptop with the latest version of Windows 10. Everything works fine EXCEPT the screen brightness. Earlier I could adjust my screen brightness, but now no matter how much I increase or decrease the level in the control panel, the actual brightness level remains the same, and I think it's at the highest level, since the battery is going done by a scary 10% in 20 minutes. I am currently working on my laptop wearing sunglasses. Please Helpp ! P.S My laptop has got two Display Adapters, Radeon Graphics and Intel Graphics, and I've tried updating both the drivers, and it says that you've already got the best drivers for your device, after searching on the internet.
Changed my default picture folder name somehow
I somehow changed my default picture folder name that I also don't know how and now it shows (/D) only. And I am not able to rename it now. I don't know much about operating computer and learning to use it. So please somebody help me in this issue. My C drive shows 47 GB free out of 97, D Drive 437 GB free out of 450 GB and E Drive 445 GB out of 450 GB. So you see not having much files but stil my laptop runs very slow and takes a lot of time to start and reboot almost 10 min for each one. And runs super slow. Please guide me in these matters. I shall be very thankful for any help provided on here.

What is the best antivirus software out there?
I always wanted to ask this question since I honestly don't know enough about computers. I always wanted to know if I am wasting my money buying McAfee or is the windows updates enough? Is it harmful to have too many antivirus software on your computer. If one computer has it at home does it effect the others that are on the same network?
What is Productivity?
I'm often baffled by the way people use the word "productivity". It would seem I may have the wrong idea of the definition of productivity. In my view, productivity describes the most direct way to achieve a desired result. It means, responding to a request with a direct action towards producing the desired result : eg: "open the window", should cause someone to open the window. Conversely, when I ask Microsoft to do something , I usually get a response in the form of a question. " Are you sure that's what you want me to do?" or perhaps, " Do you have the authority to request that ?" Very often, on the internet, I get an even more non-productive response. " Sorry, we cannot find that site" or another inane response is , " We notice you are using an ad blocker. We'd like to give you the opportunity to remove it or disable it so we can feed you the kind of crap you put the ad blocker in place to prevent ." Am I wrong in assuming that Microsoft is asking me to remove my,"productivity" measures so they can waste more of my time with unsolicited sales pitches instead of doing what I asked them to do?
Safe Hardware Removal Icon
Where did this icon go?
Amazon is telling me I don't have security or firewall protection in order to use/connect with my Echo. Everything was fine until I canceled Amazon Prime. Now Echo/Alexa tells me "Can't connect" I spoke with DELL, and they told me the security that was pre installed on my desktop was all the security I needed and didn't need to "PURCHASE" more which is what Amazon was telling me I had to do.. After I canceled Amazon Prime, I installed just Amazon because Echo told me I had to have an Amazon acc't to use Echo. but not Prime. So now I'm faced with not being able to use Echo/Alexa ( that's what Amazon is telling me anyway ) I'm not in a position right now financially to purchase another security because of Covid, and my Windows Security seems to be doing a good job ! Can anyone help ??? Thank you, Rick

This very email has yet been sent to 'email@example.com' , which obviously is not me, in what way did someone manage to redirect emails is a puzzle for myself, but the fact remains it found it's way to my junk folder automatically. Well dome Outlook for categorizing it as junk, but not so well for even sending it to me 😑

In Windows 10, action center is where to find your app notifications, as well as quick actions, which give you quick access to commonly used settings and apps. Change your action center settings at any time from the Settings app. Select the Start button, and then select Settings. Go to System > Notifications & actions.
Windows 10 puts notifications and quick actions in action center—right on the taskbar—where you can get to them instantly. Select action center on the taskbar to open it. (You can also swipe in from the right edge of your screen, or press Windows logo key + A.) Notifications at a glance
Under Get notifications from these senders, do one of the following: Turn on or turn off a notification sender. Select a sender's name and then turn on or turn off notification banners, lock screen privacy, and notification sounds, and set the priority of notifications. Choose and rearrange the quick actions you see in action center
A notification informs users of events that are unrelated to the current user activity, by briefly displaying a balloon from an icon in the notification area. The notification could result from a user action or significant system event, or could offer potentially useful information from Microsoft Windows or an application.
