"Microsoft Warning-- Install the "Emergency Patch"09-24-2019
Janet Perez of Komando.com under Kim Komando's Emails, Kim is a well know tech guru, put out an email to Kim's subscribers on 09-24-2019 on the above subject and said "Microsoft is telling users to download an 'emergency' out-of-band security patch immediately." Komando further says "the security flaw affects more than 7% of all browser users...running affected version of Internet Explorer 9, 10 and 11'. I have an updated Windows 10 computer, and I do use Internet Explorer and Edge, as well as GOOGLE regularly, but I don't know if I should download anything regarding this "Microsoft warning"! I just down's understand what, if anything I should do. My computer has the latest Update from Microsoft. I rely on my installed Malware Bytes Premium protection and Webroot Security, both of which are paid services. I also have Windows Defender doing periodic scanning. I have not been alerted by any of these three security and protection systems that my computer is in any way under attack or been infected. Komando has appended 16 Downloads from which to choose for dong the "emergency patch", however, none of them state in their titles/descriptions that they are for Windows 10? The Article states that the Department of Homeland Security takes the threat serious enough that it is issuing its own "advisory urging the public to get the patch." The Article states: "You can find the patch here (https.//www.catalog.update.microsft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4522007). Further, "from the list, "choose the update that corresponds with the versions of Internet Explore and Windows that you are running." I cannot seem to determine, despite instruction, what version of Internet Explorer I'm running, but if I could, the download list seems not to reference Windows 10 in anyway. COULD ANY OF YOU TECHIES SHOW ME THE LIGHT, AND GUIDE ME SPECIFICALLY AS TO WHAT I SHOULD DO BY WAY OF WHICH IE PATCH I SHOULD DOWNLOAD, IF ANY? I really would appreciate any help and wisdom from you. Thanks! Jim B.

How do I disable dumb overtype PERMANENTLY? OneNote Web
This feature is very annoying. I cannot seem to identify when and how it gets triggered. A bit of searching reveals that "Insert" or "INS" should toggle the setting for overtype but this it is not working at all for web version of OneNote. I am forced to reload the OneNote tab and then finish writing/ editing the sentence in normal mode but then again It comes back when moving to next line or bullet. As per my research if it is enabled it should be enabled throughout regardless of application but as I am writing this very post in normal mode in another tab within the same chrome windows. the very next OneNote tab is suffering from useless feature called overtype. How is this possible. Or have I gone insane. Please help I may be PEBCAC

Pop-up on answer.microsoft.com page
Hello, Wednesday 21st October, I used google to search for some information, I found the interesting topic from “answer.microsoft.com” page so, I clicked link, it brought me to page but just a few second while I was reading that topic, the pop-up appeared. It said “ Help us help you! Got 30 seconds? Want to help Windows be better? Participate in our study“ with the option “Cancel” and “Join” (I can’t remember), I clicked ok and it brought me to “ https://community.windows.com/en-us/“ Is it legitimate user research from Microsoft? Does it have something I should be worried about? Detail: I found this pop-up when I opened “answer.microsoft.com” on my notebook (Browser: Chrome) but It doesn’t appear when I opened the page on mobile device Thank you
Is Windows 10X gonna fail? No win32 support
This is really important, Windows 10x is designed for foldables but as I take it, it's like a downgrade in everyway from Windows 10. Windows 10x is coming to single screen devices, to replace those trash computers that people use. I find it to be WAY to agressively pushed as a chromebook competitor, and virtualized apps running to a server really doesn't help. The thing is, I would like it if it had a option to run locally using another server computer as a way of a "Battery saver" mode for windows 10, but windows 10X is really pushing it too far, espically when the Microsoft Store hasn't been updated properly. The store looks ugly, spaced out akwardly, collections placed in a non-agressive spot, apps not priorized as they should be on search, and improper spacing overall. So who is Windows10x for? --addtional(edit)-- What makes it better than linux?
See httpS settings & more 👍👍
Another good reason for using Edge Dev, instead of GA... This is exciting❗ BOTH Dev & Canary (GA will have) have this, now. > Settings > Privacy, Search & Services, look down a bit and NOW this 👇 is what we have 👍👍👏 The Auto HTTPS flag IS, still, needed only with Dev, not Canary❗ Microsoft Defender SmartScreen Help protect me from malicious sites and downloads with Microsoft Defender SmartScreen. ON Block potentially unwanted apps ON Blocks downloads of low-reputation apps that might cause unexpected behaviors. Automatically switch to more secure connections with Automatic HTTPS ON Using HTTPS can help keep your personal info more secure ☑ Switch to HTTPS only on websites likely to support HTTPS Always switch from HTTP to HTTPS (connection errors might occur more often) NB: Canary is now showing this with NO flag... Dev shows same now but STILL only WITH the flag. Cheers, Drew
