Not Sure What Is Happening With The Non Marked Responses
Hello Fellow Windows Community Members & Staff, Sorry for the confusing Title but I could only post 60 characters in there. Anyways!... has anyone else noticed that almost 90% of the members here have "Stopped" using and Supporting the " Like - LOL - Helpful - Awesome " areas in the original OP Posts, and in the Reply's to the OP as well. (IMO) it always gives me a great feeling inside if I can answer a members question and I then received a "Helpful" response back from the OP and of course a reply. By using these features we also accumulate badges for our participation and involvement in Our Community. I know these badges are just for fun, and have No value except to the person who has earned them. Since I've been a member here I Always try and leave one of these selections marked in Every Post. a new member can learn a lot from other members posts that may have had the same problem and is looking for a solution when they come across one of our old posts with the answer already there. What are your thoughts on this Matter?.. Likes / Dislikes?..
Google browser hijacked by Microsoft
As of yesterday, Microsoft has hijacked my downloaded Google browser on my 7 month old Surface Pro X - it had to be done in the latest update. As soon as I try to open it, the REAL Google screen shows up for .5 of a second, then I am auto redirected to “gooogle.com” (one too many “o’s) (a VERY BAD FAKE looking Google) then quickly to Bing, if you type in anything to search. Is this even legal? It’s my computer, no matter who makes it, and I should be able to use whatever browser I want. Sounds like a class-action lawsuit, similar to the one against Apple when they were using new Updates to slow the older phone models down so people would buy new ones. I am also greatly offended that they would actually think I wouldn’t notice! Do you SEE my email address? I feel violated in the strangest way.

Microsoft Store - MSN Weather has an error downloading
Hi everyone!, Microsoft has their MSN weather app where it tells you the details of the Earth's weather. I recently bought a new PC and the MSN weather app, which i use a lot, was not downloaded. I went to the Microsoft store and downloaded it, but it kept saying error downloading. I clicked on see details, and I restarted my computer, like it said. It still has not fixed the problem. Also, whenever i start my computer up from sleep, it automatically keeps trying to download the app again. Does anyone know how to get rid of the error downloading thing, and if not, how to stop it from automatically downloading? Thank you everyone!

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.
Sound output from win 10 device
I need my computer to generate a beep sound thru headphone jack to trigger an audio relay switch to commence a race timing countdown clock. The issue is that when the race software is maximised on my screen the audio relay switch fails to pickup the audio signal from the jack. I have checked that there is still sound playing in the headphone jack even when race software is maximised but when the software is maximised the audio relay doesn't work. I would appreciate any help in cracking this issue because we need the race software maximised at the same time as the beep. I even tried getting the race software to generate the beep but the same thing happened Thanks John

How do you take screenshots?
Did you know with the Windows 10 May 2019 Update, you can set the PrtScn button on your keyboard to open the Snip & Sketch app? I find this to be the fastest way to take and share a screenshot. How do you take your screenshots? -Joe, Services Advisor at Microsoft
Helpful ways to protect your Microsoft account
I have seen more times than not, users reaching out about their accounts being hacked. Just a few tips for everyone who stumbles upon this post. > It is advised you change your password atleast once every three months. > Activate two-step authentication to ensure you receive a 6-digit code to a trusted e-mail or cellular device each time you attempt to login. > Never share your account details with anyone and remember, Microsoft employees will never ask for your account password. > Do not click on any suspicious URL's and always ensure you are on microsoft.com or windows.com before typing in any login credentials. This will prevent information phishing. > Never use the same password for more than two accounts. This prevents hackers from accessing other accounts on other websites. If at anytime you believe someone may have access or has had access to your account, change your password immediately. It is also advised that you change the e-mail address associated with your account. Should there ever be a need for further assistance, you are always welcomed to contact Microsoft customer care.
