Anyone else miss the old windows phones produced by Nokia?
Okay no disrespect is meant towards Microsoft in anyway or form what so ever. Okay now with this statement out of the way, lets move on towards the main focus as this conversation's title states. So anyway yeah I was wondering if anyone else out there was lucky enough to own, or even use any of the original Window Phones, that were created and produced by Nokia? Don't get me wrong, for what few phones I have tried and even seen sold by Microsoft, we still very nice, fun, and well made, however I feel like they took over the phone market a little to soon. In my opinion they should have either waited a few more years, or at the very least came to some sort of agreement that allowed Nokia to continue building phones. The reason I say this, is because of two reasons. The first of if when Nokia was creating the phones, the were offering way better phone specs, features, and sizes on the market with use with prepaid services than Android and Apple, (And to think Apple still hasn't even bothered creating a cheap affordable device for low to mid low income individuals... talk about being all loyal to their Boujee class of peoples. LOL) And the other reason being, that their top of the line model phones, where created with amazing and not to mention most incredible cameras to still ever be found on a cell phone. For examples of what I am talking about, look at both the AT&T Windows Nokia 1020, (the phone had decent memory, was shaped like a small digital camera, and had a back facing camera that took 41megapixal photos), and the AT&T Windows Nokia 1520, (A pretty well design and durable phone that was bigger than the Note 3 and Note 4 which were the best Android Phones at the time. It had a back facing camera with 20 megapixels). *A Little Fun Fact: It is mainly all thanks to Nokia with their creation of Window Phones, that we have the decent size and as good as quality cheap android phones on the market as we do today. So anyway, does anyone else miss them?
Windows 10 cannot start!
I have a Dell desktop running Windows 10. Three days ago, when I turned on the computer, first it showed a blue window with white dots circling around beneath. A few seconds later, the blue window disappeared, and only the white dot(s) circling for hours. The screen is in black. I tried to roll back the update and failed. I even tried to reset the PC, it still could not finished. I tried Microsoft support or Internet search, and I cannot find any solution. Can someone help me to resolve this extremely difficult problem? Thanks.

Groove Music Issue
Hello Microsoft Community! I've been having a problem with the Groove Music app on Windows and I wanted to see if anyone could help me. So, I'm big on music and one thing I like about groove is the fact that you can add custom album art which is great for my techno artist and albums that groove can't find album art for but, for some reason, when I try and add this art myself sometimes, I just get the default image photo instead of the album art itself. Even when I save it, It's still this stupid default photo. Can anyone help me at all?
Movies & TV App
As a Microsoft Store associate, I see a few customers that come in with questions about the Movies & TV app. Out of curiosity, how do you usually access the Movies & TV app? Mostly on your Windows device or on your Xbox (if you have one)? What is your favorite feature of the app or least favorite?
Just thought I would surf by and 'see' if you are all okay and keeping well. With all the online work being done at home by millions of people Microsoft (my fav provider) has most definitely demonstrated its relevance in our twenty first century. Please all, keep well and remember to give your devices a clean especially keyboards. I have just done mine (I did remember to shut down the computer first 🙄).

Windows randomly starts failing
About once a day now I will be playing a game or watching a show and windows will start to fail. If I am playing a game my controller will cutout and my audio or sometimes my voice may start cutting out on discord instead and no one can hear me any longer and my stream will close. If I try to open any programs they do not. In this state I can only interact with random already open programs. If I try to move a currently open program at the bottom of the screen it creates a strange fading cascade effect. The only way I have found that I can fix it thus far is through a full restart of my PC. Any suggestions?
Do you use Timeline to maintain your work history?
How many of you utilize Timeline to keep track of your work? I use it on my device to see what documents I was working with on a specific day, and what information I might have been referencing with Edge. I can even keep track of projects in Visual Studio, allowing me to look back at all different types of work I've done. - Brandon C, Services Advisor from Microsoft Stores
