Do you use Timeline to maintain your work history?
How many of you utilize Timeline to keep track of your work? I use it on my device to see what documents I was working with on a specific day, and what information I might have been referencing with Edge. I can even keep track of projects in Visual Studio, allowing me to look back at all different types of work I've done. - Brandon C, Services Advisor from Microsoft Stores

Windows 10 - create a desktop icon? Help please 😀
When I used Windows 7 I could easily create an icon for my desktop. I do not seem to be able to do that now. Desktop icons are very helpful and speed up the connect process. My bot (computer) is an HP Combi and is currently operating in tablet mode. I have tried the process of using themes but was not successful. Any suggestions? Many thanks PS - I understand that Microsoft Edge doesn't allow desk-top shortcuts to be created. Have to revert several clicks to get to a website 🤔
Microsoft Maps Location
Anyone know if Maps or Microsoft's location services were changed recently? I moved from one side of the country to the other and built a new computer. It showed my location as my previous address much to my dismay. I turned off all location services and set my time and weather manually as well as clearing any incorrect locations from my account. We then went back to visit for a month, and after returning, I tried turning location back on and it correctly showed my new address. Starting at the beginning of this week, my location had drifted by a couple houses, and today it went back to my old address on the other side of the country, thus making my weather and time settings wrong as well. I'm hoping this isn't going to require me to take another trip just to get it to work correctly again.
Does anyone here remember Windows XP?
It was a great Windows OS. I think Microsoft should make a Windows 10 theme based off of it, even with the classic Windows XP-esque start menu merged with the Windows 10 start menu. How does that sound?
Does the "Search" Tool Make Navigating Your Computer Easier?
I use the "Search" feature frequently, I'm a big fan. For years I've wanted a simple search bar on my computer that could find mostly anything I'm looking for. That little magnifying glass in the bottom left side of the task bar can locate the files, programs, settings, even websites that best match my search. I work at MSFT and I'm curious about your thoughts & feedback. Thank you in advance!
When do you use the touchscreen on your PC most?
Working in a Microsoft Store, I tend to use my touchscreen a lot because of the convenience. Once I got passed the fingerprints on my screen, I found it to be beneficial in my daily tasks. I am curious, in what ways have you used it?

Windows Boot Problems
I recently built a PC and have a number of problems with windows 10 since installing. I have since had to reinstall windows (after wiping my ssd) multiple times and don't want to have to continue doing so in the future. Is there anything I am doing wrong? Maybe I messed up installing my hardrive or something i truly don't know

How do I pin a specific notepad file to the taskbar, rather than the Notepad program itself. I've actually got two questions, the first one the most important, the second I'd love to have answered by a Microsoft Employee but I know it won't. ... than simply pinning a shortcut to the file dropped on the taskbar. As mentioned before, I only ...

I've noticed since Microsoft has forced me to now install Skype for Windows 10 app that I no longer have a ...
Pinning temporarily locks the data in its current memory location, thus keeping it from being relocated by the common language runtime's garbage collector. The marshaler pins data to reduce the overhead of copying and enhance performance. The type of the data determines whether it is copied or pinned during the marshaling process.
