Microsoft's new competition from Google "Stack"
This one I must ad is rather formidable too. Google's Area 120 has released an app called Stack. https://www.androidcentral.com/google-area-120-develops-stack-document-scanner For those that have not read about it, it is a mobile scanner app much like Microsoft Office Lens. Being the curious type that I am, I had to try it out. Here is what I found. This is going to make Microsoft sit up and take notice! plain and simple. Why? Mainly because of the AI features that they have built in, but also the "Stacks" are easier to access, than are Microsoft's, upload locations. Also you really don't need to center the device on the object to be scanned, just over it. You'll just have to try that one. But let's talk about the AI. What got my attention there, was when I scanned an item, which happened to be a bill, when it was ready to save to their "Stack", it showed me the name of the Payee. Where as with Office Lens I would need to edit their random file name to reflect the payee name. Maybe not a big deal, but certainly noteworthy. for those like myself that use Office Lens fairly frequently. Those are the 3 up sides. The down sides are, it's still in Beta, I felt that the UI was clunky, and although it says you can save the scan to somewhere other than Google Drive, I didn't find anywhere to change that. I saw where to turn it off, but not where to change. it. Bottom line from a lay person: Google Stack can when polished give Microsoft Office Lens a run for it' money, But Office Lens is tried and true and just keeps getting better and better. I'm staying with it

I just realized on file explorer you can optimize the folder
You can optimize the folder for general items, pictures and some other things. However what I realized is that when I selected pictures in a massive picture libary it drastically improved the performance on the photo app. But it also cannot be modified on my surface device for some reason, hence I cannot test this out. I also believe this to be the cause of the massive cpu usage on the photo's app. But eh, I'm wondering how many people how significant it is, it think it focuses on background optimization, and not just adjusting it's layout.

Want to have Windows 10pro version 1703 updated to latest.
Dear community, I have on a laptop Windows 10 Pro version 1703 running. The laptop was not used for a while anymore but now I want to use it again. However the current version is to old to have the security updates all installed. I looked at the windows website and did not find the right update, at least I did not want to ' downgrade' to the home edition. Could someone help me how I could update my version to latest and keeping the license and PRO version? Thanks in advance, Rick.
I have been using a tp-link brand router for over 2 years now. I have recently been experiencing a lot of lag times. When I checked my download speed, it was 104 when wired directly to the modem. Through the router,d it was only 42. I contacted tp-link and was told by them that their routers typically deliver only 40-50% of mbps. I find this very hard to believe. Any advise?
Never Jump To Conclusions! 👀
Hello Everyone, I'd like to share a little True story with all of you. The other day on patch Tuesday I downloaded all the updates and installed them to my system and all seemed fine. So the next day I was surfing the net and all of a Sudden my Microsoft 1850 Wireless Mouse froze-up and stopped responding after my system made that little noise that it does when you remove a device from a USB Port. So I thought maybe a reboot will fix the problem. And it did for a little while and then it did it again. So naturally my first thought was """OH NO A Bad Update!!!""" It wasn't doing that until the Update!... It's just gotta be that. Then I took a second and thought well maybe It's a mouse going bad, Yeap! you guest it, I jumped online and ordered a new one. Anyways!... After that I started thinking and I decided to remove the Mouse Dongola from the extra USB Port that came on my cooling pad and insert it into a different USB port on my device itself. Well Low And Behold It Worked Perfectly!... It seams that the USB Port on my Cooling pad has gone bad after many years of service And NOT the fault of Microsoft at all. The Moral Of The Story : Never Jump To Conclusions Because The Problem May Just Be On Your End.
