Ransomware blocking legit applications
Has any one else ran into the problem where a legitimate app is being blocked from installing by Windows. How about constant reminders from Windows apps being blocked from controlled folder access? Did you find a solution, or did you wait for it to reside. My VPN app just got an update, then Microsoft started blocking me from installing it, at all. I've paid for this service, and there is no reason it should be blocked, I'm at a loss as to why, or how to fix. I have allowed everything that was blocked, and Microsoft still blocked the .tmp file to install. If this is the case, Microsoft owes me a refund for this month.

Windows 10 Virtual/Multiple Desktop Usefulness
Just started using virtual/multiple desktops, and I'm finding it quite useless, so I think i may be missing something. I can't seem to get apps opening nicely on both desktops, I get very inconsistent behavior. Skype/Battle.net client/etc - Opening on 2nd desktop swaps me back to the first desktop Edge - Opens new windows fully separate on 2nd desktop Outlook - Opens new window nicely on 2nd desktop, 1st desktop sees two windows (1st and 2nd desktop instances) I didn't test much more than this, but makes a 2nd desktop quite useless as i mostly have to swap back for particularly chat apps. Am I doing something wrong? BR, Andrew
new issues account issues
hi there: I created a new user account because my old one was corrupted. Two issues. 1) I switched from local account to my MS account. Issue is, the background color, like having folders in the dark mode, etc. did not sync or carry over. What is happening there? 2) Why are apps from the store like Candy Crush gets installed automatically? What is happening there? Possible bugs? Can someone have the team check it out? I can send a feedback, if it is a bug.
