Disappointed in Surface Laptop 3
Have a Surface Laptop 3 (1+ year old) which has the same problems especially Windows Edge browser frequently becoming dormant with a message " Edge is not responding". In addition system seems to degrade over time: sound, light takes longer to take effect, and MSN.com window gives me the same message and have to reboot to use. Can't really tell if it is Edge or the Computer. Called support multiple times. They run the fixit tool, reset the Windows Edge browser and I'm good for a while and the process begins again. I use to take it to the store but now that's gone. Support has gone from US to foreign country and frankly is getting less than satisfactory. I find this new support crew very unsure. They often have to check with someone else before they do anything. My impression is that Microsoft is degrading also, since the stores are gone. Hate to see that happening. Will not purchase a MS computer next time.
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.
Windows Photos blocking images after edit
Usually when downloading files from tze internet, Windows 10 will block them. This can be prevented if one would disable security by turning the Windows Defender completely off, which you do not want to do. It's all nice and fun until you move files from other devices to your PC, which i did from my phone via WiFi. Surprisingly no picture was blocked....until i used Photos app to edit a picture, after which i clicked on 'save copy'. Needless to mention, the most useful function in editing pictures is the 'clarity' , this does some amazing things with a picture. But now, after saving a copy i wanted to compare the original vs the new one, and so i opened the original picture and used mouse wheel to go to the next picture, and the new picture got skipped. I immediately checked the properties, bcoz windows apps may not open files if those are blocked. I am now wondering, how come the app designed to replace Photo Viewer, changes the files so that they are being recognized as a threat? Why did windows block a file changed by a windows app????? 😅 Of course the blocked picture opens, but then i can not toggle between pictures. Does someone care to try it out? *Edit* Blocked pictures may not be used for lock screen but can be used as a wallpaper.
Windows 10 Update fails entire OS Win10, 2020 Update failur
I had an Old PC with Windows 8.1 pro, which 4-5 yrs ego updated to Windows 10 Pro by Microsoft. Yesterday I got ultimate 2020 update offer from Microsoft site and after hours of download and installation, my PC had every kind of problem, and now it does not even boot to OS. Searching on Internet, I found I'm not alone, and millions of peoples having the same problem. First I think it was very stupid for Microsoft to put this update out there, and making people to somehow go for buying a new version of Windows 10 (base on its 7-8 yrs cycle of new OS release). It could done this honestly by releasing a new Windows for sale, and I would not lost tons of file and $100s worth of installed Software on my PC. Now there is not even a USB tool or USB Trouble shooting neither any clue, where the problem is. My system on my most used PC I had is blocked, and no any reference on Microsoft attack the problem the way to solve, but leading to get a New Window OS, use installation USB, and here you go Now you have a new Windows 10 sold. Seems like Lebanese Gang working with Indo-Bangeladeshi Programmers to run Microsoft 2020 !

'Your account settings has been changes on Sunday' 😅🙅♂️
First let's ignore the spelling mistake in the title...in that email i got from a bot : title 'Re: Notification from Amazon - Your account settings has been changes on Sunday, 03. 2021. ETC: 88979234' and content: 'A m a z o͏ n <................@............online> Sun 03/01/2021 22:52 amz Dear Customer, Wе havе placеd a hοld οn yοur Amazon accοunt and all pеnding οrdеrs.

Thank yοu fοr yοur attеntiοn. Sincеrеly, Amazon Suppοrt.' 🤷♂️ i took a look at it bcoz i actually ordered something on Sunday, turns out not to be an actual notification, but a click bait~ A warning for all of you to check their emails not on a mobile device, you sometimes will not see the sender of the email, and thus the email will appear more convincing. This very email has yet been sent to 'email@example.com' , which obviously is not me, in what way did someone manage to redirect emails is a puzzle for myself, but the fact remains it found it's way to my junk folder automatically. Well dome Outlook for categorizing it as junk, but not so well for even sending it to me 😑
