Results for: find my device
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?
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.
On-line Shopping 😉
Whilst we have all been on lockdown (except for front-line workers bless them🙏) have your online shopping transactions significantly increased, remained the same or even decreased? I have been an online shopper for several years which I find so convenient and cost-effective. Since lockdown though, I have used the 'Amazon' platform more than I had originally anticipated even taking into consideration the difficulties of lockdown. Here in the UK during the first few weeks of the pandemic, supermarkets experienced panic buying by many, many customers resulting in stripped shelves and getting a delivery slot was very difficult 🤔😮. Thankfully supermarket shopping delivery slots are much easier to book. But I had to resort to doing more virtual food shopping and found a source form a pub in a near-by village. 🥛🍇🥬🥦🥔 Restrictions in England are being lifted slowly and non-essential retail shops will be permitted to re-open on June 15th. I have to wonder though, whether shoppers in general will return to the High Street/Main Street in the numbers prior to the pandemic. The retail sector has suffered significant losses and several large department stores have gone into administration. Do you think that the pandemic has fundamentally changed the way we will shop in a post-pandemic world? For myself, I think it has. I find on-line shopping so very convenient - even buying printer cartridges and other desk essentials was easier than trooping to the retail park. I think MS/Windows/Skype et al had made my daily life much easier - thank you to all the teams. Now I can shop around the world, hold virtual meetings, keep in contact with friends and come to this platform any time of the day/evening. So cool 😎 Many thanks to all MS teams. Views? Many thanks all and keep well 😊

I'm hating signing into to Microsoft it's horrible to use!
every single fudging time I am on a work's laptop or my home I am being asked to sign into Microsoft - I can't send a simple email or use app like skype without seemingly having to change my password or wondering what sodding account I'm signed up to - honestly it's horrible and so time wasting and confusing and unintuitive - how annoying can you be Microsoft?!! UGH
News Weather and Interest on the taskbar.
When this first showed up I liked it on my Surface Go 2 tablet, but not so much on my laptop. Now I'm finding that with all of the changes that Microsoft is making to their MSN News, that News, Weather and Interest thingy is becoming quite useful, well at least to me it is. YMMV. I wish I could customize it a little bit more, but we can't always have everything we want. Good job Microsoft! and Thanks
