Is there a way to wait to install an update
I have tried to turn off windows updates but even when I go in and disable them, they still manage to turn themselves off. I only find out when I got to turn off my laptop and my options are update and restart or update and shut down. I like to be there when it's updating and sometimes I want to go to bed. So what are my options ....I have to sit there and wait for it to update. Why can't they give me an option to ignore update for now and shut down normally. I feel like I have no control over my computer updating. On my apple devices it tells me when there is an update available and I can decide when it's a good time for me to update. Is there some way around this? I'm in the market for a new laptop and I am seriously wondering if I really want to get another windows laptop because of the lack of control over the updates.
Windows 10 takes long time to show desktop screen
Hello All, I use winodws 10 licensed version will all the latest updates installed. I am facing a strange issue with my desktop. Fresh windows boots very fast. Gradually the boot times gets increased. Right now the issues is: Enter password screen appears within 30 seconds to 1 minutes. After entering the password it takes up to 10 min to show desktop. Mostly its a black screen and hard disk running all the time. After desktop screen, system works fine. There is no issue. Shutdown process is normal. Maximum time for shutdown is 1 min. as lots of applications running. Restart has the same issue as startup. For 5 to 10 min. it shows please wait, then boot from zero and again delay of password screen. I have tried all the things available on internet to repair. No 3rd party tool used. It is difficult to format system everymonth as sometimes data loss happnes. System Config. i5 - 2320 cpu @ 3GHz 64Bit windows 10 RAM: 4+4GB Display: NVIDIA 1GB. 1TB HDD + 120GB HDD I have tried with main HDD also. I removed all the BIG apps and tried. But there is no luck with the boot time. I request you to please suggest a solution. Cheers, Neraj
Microsoft's Support really sucks
I am unable to send an email to a client - seriously, COMPLETELY UNABLE - to send an email to one of my clients with Microsoft Windows 10 Outlook because every time I type in her email address, the program 'corrects' her email address to her phone number. And there is NOBODY at Microsoft willing to fix it or answer the problem. I expect better service from a company with this much of our money and with this much market saturation. I have already looked at several conversations and the only answers I have seen involve trying to find every email, text or other communication I have ever had from any source with this person and try to delete them all - which is not possible. Anyone else?
Outlook POP to IMAP change
Hello, I use a local MS Office Outlook installation with POP download from my MS Outlook e-mail account. Question: Can I change from POP to IMAP for an existing e-mail address? Or do I have to open a new e-mail address for this. Another question: I have set Outlook to include my first name and last name as the sender. However, I am unable to ensure that this also happens when I use an alias address. How can that be achieved? Thank you for help.

How many people read feedback comments?
I read a feedback comment that said: Solved the situation: Uninstalled the app, deleted the app folder C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.MSPaint_6.2004.20027.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe and re-installed the app with Microsoft Store.

Catastrophic Failure: icloud-windows integration
Hello Windows Community Thanks for sharing the lead to the new update Windows 10, which leads to Catastrophic Failure, Which leads to corrupt files, which leads to the close of another day and nothing created and lots of wasted time but there really is nothing else to do during the pandemic. I still type really slowly, my fingers don't always do what I intend them to do, but I can get that system that never wants to comply up and performing even after a total crash out and catastrophic failure warning and no access to USB device. Shall I call that progress or comedy?
