Microsoft Team Platform - excellent resource 🤩
I have been skyping with a family member who is currently self-isolating due to the CoVid19 situation. My family member indicated that her team uses the MS Team Platform as does other members of my family. All indicate very positive results from using this platform and will continue to do so even when the CoVid19 pandemic is over. It is a very effective and dynamic environment. 🤩😎
Happy about the Surface Duo, unhappy about Android system.
The idea of the Surface Duo is great, The idea of it running Android sucks. I choose to avoid Android/Google/Gmail, et al, when and where ever possible. I don't trust Google at all, and wish to cut ties to them in every way possible. I have chosen to trust Microsoft, this trust does NOT extend to Google. Within the Android operating system(s) I am REQUIRED to have (and use) a Gmail account. Even to download Microsoft apps (Launcher, Edge, Bing, Authenticator). These actions open all access to any of my information, location(s), search histories and any other data that may choose to mine to Google over-lords. I don't trust Google and hoped to use Microsoft as a buffer to their potential evils. The costs, closed system policies, and the guilt by association feelings have a;ways kept my from Apple products. I could never justify Apple when Steve Jobs was alive. Will it be my only choice be to assimilate to the Apple borg, as now guided by Tim Cook? I have never believed that Apple products were worth the costs, fees, and stigma that the brand represents in my mind. I am pleading with Microsoft, to find a better way. As much as I like the concept of the Surface Duo, the Android operating system forces us all toward Google. Who wants that? Please reconsider. What options might I consider, to keep me from accepting all of Google's Crapware and data-mining menace? I ask these things seriously, and don't know what to do.
Do you notice and\or don't you notice?
I am wondering maybe its just my laptop, but every time I open up someone's conversation dialog box. The footer box jumps to the top of the header and displays all those words in the grey matter? Why can't the dialog box just open without the bottom part appearing? This occurs in Windows Community only. This is too annoying all the time and it should remain fixed. 🤔
Desktop PC, tablet or smartphone?

Where to learn?
I wasn't brought up with computers; I'm 66, but want to learn how to do more. In particular, I want to learn how to track the sources of scammers and spammers. I haven't fallen for any of the scams I've received, but want to be able to have papers served on the scammers, or have the police haul them off. What book(s) should I look for, or where can I find free or low cost instruction?
Microsoft Rewards Points
Has anyone had (or currently has) a rewards streak for more than 100 days? Or even more than 300 days and still going? When you're in a streak past 200 days, do the bonus points ever go past 150?
My Email content is not downloading automatically
It is taking 5-10 minutes for an email to download the content of an email now. It was automatic and super fast. It did not slow down over time. It just stopped downloading and taking forever overnight. I have a Samsung laptop and run Windows 10. Also have an Apple iPhone. Nothing is new. My 4 month old computer is gathering dust. So slow it is useless. Thanks for any suggestions!
Tips of the day: Exploring and maintaining your computer
To see how much disk space is free, hold down ALT and double-click the icon for the drive in the This PC window. You can solve disk space problems by accessing Storage in Settings or Disk Clean-up. To free disk space, try emptying the Recycle Bin. Deleted files and folders are saved in the Recycle Bin until you empty it. You can use File Explorer to see all the file son your computer. You can use Paint (normally launched by clicking Start, scrolling down to Windows Accessories, clicking Windows Accessories, and then clicking Paint) to draw pictures and view bitmap files. When a folder is open, you can press BACKSPACE to open a folder one level higher. Use Preview Pane in File Explorer to preview a document without opening it by clicking a document. When you display files in the Details view, you can sort them by clicking the column headings. To sort the files in reverse order, click the column heading once more. You can right-click anywhere to see a menu of available commands. You can try many useful programs by clicking Start, scrolling down to Windows Accessories, and then clicking Windows Accessories. In File Explorer, you can set options to show or hide three-letter filename extensions.

You can also take your phone with you and allow your computer to lock automatically; this is called Dynamic Lock.
Groove Music vs. Windows Media Player
Which is the better of the two? Do you have another one that you like even better? I like Groove Music for listening to music, but I prefer the simplicity of Windows Media Player when listening to voice mail messages attached in e-mails.
