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
Password Managers: LastPass vs: Windows Password Manager
I recently had an event, where I could not log into my BofA account on line. I had had this happen before with my Verizon account, and after doing some searching I found the culprit was the interaction between the websites and Microsoft's Password Manager and LastPass. Every once in a while they would not play nicely and get along. If I updated one or the other and inadvertently forgot to update the other, well, you get the picture. What I found yesterday though was really troubling. While making sure that my password in Microsoft' Password Manager was correct, I saw multiple accounts with multiple login credentials, that I haven't used in quite some time, and in fact should have been updated. But multiples? troubling to say the least. My Verizon was the worst with 5 different sets of credentials. Once I cleared all but the ones that I needed, all has been well. Same with BofA. LastPass has really begun to annoy me too. When I log into a site, it nags me with a screen that asks if I want to update that login info.... Seriously! Every single time! And every time on my Android phone if highlight something that need input it asks if I want to auto fill with LastPass. Sheesh! I've been using LastPass since Windows 8, and the

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.
I have a BOSE NC 700 headphone, with Bluetooth. It used to work well with WIN 10. Not sure what happened after several WIN updates. Now the the headset Bluetooth pairs but when I click to Connect, it gives a msg that it is not "discoverable". I have tried so many options, per many suggestions, including "remove" and re-pair again. Turn off Bluetooth then turn on. Tried uninstalling Bluetooth, restart then try again and again same msg. Uninstall and reinstall Bluetooth Enumerator, same results. Remove/uninstall Bluetooth Device, restart the PC, again tried to reconnect, same msg that my headset is Not discoverable. I and at a loss!!!! I have tried numerous ways to make the BOSE headset discoverable, still same issue that it is NOT discoverable. The strange thing is that the same BOSE Headset pairs and connects to my iPhone XR, my iPad Pro, my Mini Apple and my other iPad, but NOT with this WIN 10. So I assume the issue is NOT with the Headset, but rather with my WIN 10. Can someone help? Keeping in mind that I have tried all the options listed above. Need help! Appreciate any help, guidance or suggestions.

Setting default action when connecting a USB drive
In my Windows 10 (latest update of Pro at home office), I am prompted each time I insert a USB flash memory drive about what to do. In the past, the selection dialog included a check box to set the selected action as default. There is none shown now. I can't find a way to set such an option.
