Changing computers/emails and how it affects Microsoft 365
Here is my scenario. I have a Microsoft 365 account with an email address of firstname.lastname@example.org. I have moved and changed carriers and soon will not have that email address. I also bought a new PC and when I was setting it up, I did so with my new @gmail.com address. My problem is, after doing some reading, it seems I can't just change/link my existing Microsoft 365 to the gmail address because it says it's already in use?? Does that make sense? These Microsoft accounts and 365 accounts seem like a pain to me. My uses are simple, as I don't link or sync devices or anything like that, I just want to be able to simply log into my PC and have access to my 365. It seems every time I turn around they make a change and I end up having issues. Basically I'm concerned that I will get locked out if I try and switch something and lose access to my paid 365 subscription.
The WINDOWS LOGO + X Power User Menu
Right-clicking the Start button or pressing WINDOWS LOGO + X shows you a list of power user options that you can use.

What Do You Think About Skype?
Nowadays we are in situation where we should participate in social distancing and that's leads us to relay on Social Media ,Instance Messages and other means to do remote communication. Skype is great program to communicate remotely and if both parties have a device which Skype could be installed on it, they could have a Video and Voice call communication. Skype is also good if you just want to have quick chat with someone who doesn't have Skype and you could send invitation link and they could join the chat using browser without installing Skype. In worse case, when the other party doesn't have Smart Phone, Internet Connection or there is other issue, you could purchase Skype credit and call Skype to Landline or Cellphone which is available for most places around the world. I am Wondering, are you using Skype? Why? Why not? If you are using different technology, please name it and tell us why you are using it?
Can no longer write to files in my home Documents
My files in my home Document are no longer writable. I've suspected Dropbox, Bitdefender and Windows Account, but am unable to fix. If I try to write to a file in \Users\me\Documents it says: You'll need to provide administrator permission ... So if I chose 'Continue', it says You need permission to perform this action. You require permission from me-DESKTOP\me to make changes I am logged in to me-DESKTOP as me. I am the Administrator and only user on this box and for years all has been fine, until recently. Another interesting find is that I seem to only have this problem with a compressed folder. I cannot Uncompress it either, 'An error occurred applying attributes to the file: Access is denied". When I open Properties, Security, Advanced I can see that the Owner is me (me-DESKTOP\me) and if I click on the 'Change' button NOTHING happens except the Change button becomes grayed out. If I do the same steps in SAFE mode, I can actually change ownership to me, but when I boot back to regular mode the problem returns. I've disabled my anti virus, uninstalled dropbox but continue to have the issue. I've found that if I copy the files to a new location they become writable. I also have another weird issue where I am regularly being advised by Windows that my Windows Account needs to be updated and opens a dialog asking me to login with an old email address that I no longer have. I have gotten a reset code (on an alternate email address) and updated my account to use a new email address but when I get the notification that my windows account needs to be updated I just repeat - as in, just read this paragraph over and over and over.
