Another good reason for using Edge Dev, instead of GA... This is exciting❗ BOTH Dev & Canary (GA will have) have this, now. > Settings > Privacy, Search & Services, look down a bit and NOW this 👇 is what we have 👍👍👏 The Auto HTTPS flag IS, still, needed only with Dev, not Canary❗ Microsoft Defender SmartScreen Help protect me from malicious sites and downloads with Microsoft Defender SmartScreen. ON Block potentially unwanted apps ON Blocks downloads of low-reputation apps that might cause unexpected behaviors. Automatically switch to more secure connections with Automatic HTTPS ON Using HTTPS can help keep your personal info more secure ☑ Switch to HTTPS only on websites likely to support HTTPS Always switch from HTTP to HTTPS (connection errors might occur more often) NB: Canary is now showing this with NO flag... Dev shows same now but STILL only WITH the flag. Cheers, Drew

Microsoft Windows 10 UI Design Is Still Inconsistent
In January2020, we here that Microsoft is discontinue the legendary Windows 7 OS after almost 12 years support. The windows 7 users should not be get any feature update expect the Security Patch update. Well frankly say it's really a tough decision for Microsoft, Because over 200M+devices are still running on windows 7 in 2020, Microsoft continuously try to push it's user to the latest Windows 10. It's fine and i am not complaining about this. But the real problem comes in terms of Windows 10's UI element design and user experience..... In Windows 10 Microsoft was introduced Fluent Design System, and that is the new user interface by Microsoft in Windows 10, Microsoft really work on it and continuously try to improve it. But the problem is The new Fluent Design of Windows 10 is very unstable and it is only support just few apps and System. The Core User Interface of Windows 10 is still look like 2009's Windows 7 in 2020. Here is the few Point that you should be noticed it: 1.The Windows 10 Setting Application has a new good look, but you can also find the old Windows 7 style in Control Panel in Windows 10. 2.The File Explorer of Windows 10 is Still look like 2009's Windows 7. 3.Most of the old core applications of Windows 7 is also present in Windows 10, Like Paint, The worse Internet Explorer, Windows old Media Player etc., you can find it on Windows Accessories folder in start menu. I know many users are still love to use those but is those app really need? think rationally.... 4.The most of the Internal Core application and program still look like windows 7 in 2020, they need a big revamp of windows new fluent design. It's complicated the system and make things more harder. My Suggestion is that, Please Windows 10 Developers Short out this Issues and Solve the Problem in next Windows 10 feature Updates. If you are agree with me, please Comment.. For more details please watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hn5QjtpjW_U
The Story of Windows Defender
Do you feel your devices are safe when you're online?
Can't switch out of S mode- Help!
I am not a fan of S mode and need to switch out, but every time I go to the app store and try to download Switch out of S mode it says "try again later something went wrong on our end".
why does Hotmail allow so much spam emails?
I get so many spam emails from HOtmail, that I deleted that account from my IPad as it just floods me with spam emails. Why doesn't Microsoft do more with stopping spam when we report it?
Staying safe on public Wi-Fi
Public Wi-Fi networks pose security risks that are avoidable with these safety tips.
To turn on potentially unwanted app blocking go to Start > Settings > Update & Security > Windows Security > App & browser control > Reputation-based protection settings. There you'll find a control that lets you turn potentially unwanted app blocking on, and select if you want to block apps, downloads, or both. Why don't I see this?
The potentially unwanted application (PUA) protection feature in Microsoft Defender Antivirus can detect and block PUA on endpoints in your network.
For a description of the criteria used to classify software as a PUA, see Potentially unwanted application. Protect against PUA with Microsoft Edge. Microsoft Edge (version 80.0.361.50 or later) blocks PUA downloads and associated resource URLs. You can set up protection by enabling the Block potentially unwanted apps feature in Microsoft Edge.
Microsoft Defender Antivirus tries to block malware before it can infect your device. Potentially unwanted apps (PUA) aren't malware, but they might display advertising, use your PC for cryptomining, or do other things you'd prefer they not do.
