Foldable vs. Day Runner
I got to thinking this morning about how far we've come with smart phones and laptops, and now foldable phones and soon foldable laptops, since the hay day of things like the Day Runner. Yea! how many of you remember when those were in their hay day. And it's still available too. Back then when you wanted to take a note, you opened your Day Runner and wrote the note. Today, you open your gadget (laptop or phone), open OneNote and write you note with a pen too! Need to jot down an appointment or see if you're busy? Open your gadget, open Outlook and look at your calendar. Need to make a new appointment or shuffle some around? Grab you pen and write it down in Outlook. Other than the obvious that everything now lives in the cloud and is sharable, have we really come that far?
I've been using my phone a lot lately and noticed that Microsoft Rewards work differently. On the desktop there is a scroll of the latest news. Clicking on the link will get you 5 points up to 150 points in addition to the info you see on your mobile. Those missed points add up quickly. For me that's 600 points this week alone. So where are if they are on mobile Bing?
What's the future of Win32 and UWP?
For those who aren't familiar, Win32 applications are your traditional desktop programs. They are typically installed via a downloaded installer, can be run directly from their exe files and are located in the Program Files folder of every Windows computer. UWPs, on the other hand, are essentially glorified mobile apps as part of Microsoft's last-ditch effort to gain developer support for Windows Phone. They can only be distributed via the Windows Store, designed from the ground up to be mouse-unfriendly, and use a completely different application architecture than traditional programs. UWPs cannot be launched directly from their exe files; their program files are hidden away in special directories that regular users are not allowed to access. The idea behind UWP was to create an application that could be programmed once and run on all Windows devices, both phone and desktop. This way, it would be easier to create software for Windows Phone, thus incentivizing developers to write more mobile apps. However, with the demise of Windows Phone and the failure of Windows 8, it doesn't seem that UWPs need to exist anymore. Yet, despite this, Microsoft is throwing more and more resources into UWP. They've converted all of their first party-software to the UWP platform, made it the only kind of software that can run on Windows VR/AR/MR headsets, and stopped adding new features to Win32 entirely. Where is Microsoft going with this? Does Microsoft plan to eventually deprecate Win32? Microsoft hasn't made their goals or intentions very clear, and it's causing no small amount of concern in the developer community. The fact that they have no public plans to deprecate Win32 at the moment is little comfort- everything Microsoft has done so far has indicated otherwise.

Staying safe from call scams
Windows Defender engineer Erik Wahlstrom shows you some ways to spot and avoid technical support call scams, and what to do if you get a scam call.
Prior to 2004, I used a Windows-based computer. I was unhappy with Windows because of constant "blue screens of death", hackers planting viruses, etc...When I became a truck driver in 2004, I mainly used a mobile phone and started using Google products. I like their products and they all work seamlessly with each other. Now, I am a full-time Care-Provider for my mother and just purchased a new computer with Windows 10 Pro installed. I decided to give Microsoft apps a try once again because I do like their products. On my PC there are no problems, but on my Android phone, I just can't seem to get Cortana to work hands-free, and with certain apps. I do understand that there is a war between Microsoft, Apple, Google and any other companies that are out there, but, the customer (that would be you and I) should be able to use whatever Assistant we choose to work with any apps that we like and use. Case in point: the Google Assistant comes on automatically when I say "OK Google" (hands-free), and I can set a timer, ask about the weather, play my favorite music in the Google Play app, etc....no problem....Today I downloaded Cortana to work with all my apps and I cannot even get it to turn on without tapping the microphone button. I made it my default app, turned on all the permissions, etc...and I am discouraged with Microsoft again. I haven't given up yet, but I had to switch back to the Google Assistant just so I can do the things I need to do hands-free, which comes with a cost of not being able to use some of the Microsoft apps unless done manually. I like Microsoft's To-Do List, but Google Assistant will only open Google's Task app. It just defeats the whole purpose of downloading all of Microsoft's apps if I can't use everything seamlessly. I use Amazon Music now, and neither Assistant will open it. I would really like to use whatever Assistant I choose with the default apps that I select. Now, am I doing something wrong or does this sound about right?

Is there a way to make a shortcut for this Community's home page or my home page to this community and have it on my laptop. I would prefer to make the shortcut on my Laptop as opposed to an app on my phone. Would be nice to simply click an icon or even have the icon show messages as does the Skype icon...
