Sticky Notes Insights not working as web site shows
I love the new version of Sticky Notes and how it interfaces with all of my devices. I use it constantly! But I haven't been able to completely use Insights. Here's my notes from the FAQs for Sticky Notes. I am using a Surface Pro 4 (OS build 18363.1016) and Surface GO (OS build 19041.450) and Sticky Notes 22.214.171.124 Does anyone have a similar experience? Did you resolve it? https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/sticky-notes-faq/b9018fdd-41ba-41c2-ba0f-5d2a45ab5ceb?LastReply=true#LastReply What insights are currently supported and how do I enable them in Sticky notes? A: Here are some tips for creating insights: WORKS Type a phone number with dashes to make a call with Skype. DOESN'T WORK Flights are best recognized with both the airline code and the flight number, such as BR26 DOESN'T WORK Stocks are recognized only when the ticker symbol is preceded with a dollar sign, such as $MSFT. DOESN'T WORK Cortana reminders can be created when times are recognized, like 6pm, today, tomorrow, Saturday, next week, July, etc. Once a time is recognized, click Add Reminder. Start a list of items with bullets, dashes, or numbers to have it formatted as a list, which you can then modify, move around, and change the order of list items. WORKS Type an email address to see the option for sending email. WORKS Type a web address (URL) to see the option to open it in a browser. WORKS Type in a full (physical) address to see it on a map. Q: Why are insights not working? How do I turn on insights? A: Insights are only available in the English (United States) Windows keyboard display language at this time, with more languages coming soon. This is found in Settings > Time & Language > Region & language > Languages > English (United States) Windows display language. I HAVE MY LANGUAGE SET TO ENGLISH AS REQUIRED. SINCE SOME OF THE INSIGHTS WORK THIS DOESN'T APPEAR TO BE THE PROBLEM BUT WANTED TO DO ALL TROUBLESHOOTING BEFORE ASKING FOR INPUT FROM THE COMMUNITY.

Win. 10 disk cleanup: How to delete temporary files
hi all: I wonder why is it that when it gets to like the 7th or 8th day, especially day 7, going to Storage and Temporary Files, I noticed the temporary files is there. It doesn't happen from day 1 to day 6. I have to clean it up. But it still appears in disk cleanup. I actually delete temporary files from manually before going to Storage. I thought it could be a bug in Windows 10. Wondering under temporary files, why it will not state 0 bytes in disk cleanup. For mine, it will state 2.07 MB. For some of you, it might state GB. I searched online and found a way for the temporary files to state 0 bytes in disk cleanup. Here are the steps: reminder, the following steps involve registry and do not modify other things, as it might cause serious issues with your device. 1. Please type reg under search and it will show Registry editor. Please click on run as administrator. 2. Then, go to, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\VolumeCaches\Temporary Files 3. In the right-pane, double-click LastAccess. 4. Set the value data for LastAccess to 10. That is what I did for mine. After you are finished and go back to Storage and Temporary Files or the disk cleanup, you will notice under temporary files, it will state 0 bytes. A reminder: Even though it might state like 2.07 MB under temporary files, but when you actually delete the files manually, it will have no affect at all. You don't lose disk space because of it. Hope this helps.
