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.
Project to your PC screen
Windows 10 comes with yet another great feature. You can project another device to your PC screen. Though most devices are not designed to be projected to, it is possible. With this feature, instead of just projecting to your PC, you can also control the device from your PC. I find this best helpful when you would like to monitor someone else's PC, like a minor. Unlike Remote desktop, the device does not need to be connected to the same network as your PC. Such like devices include Smartphones through Miracast and other PCs through Miracast or intel WiDi. All you need to do on your PC is click on the start menu or search and type 'connect'. The app will appear and open it. Before connecting, windows will open the 'projecting to this PC' setting and confirm if your PC is compatible with Project. if it is compatible, change the settings to your liking. Once done, Open the connect app and on your other device, if a PC, click Windows key + P and select connect to a wireless display. On the connect tab, yo will see your PC's name. Select it and follow any instructions required, and enjoy your connection. you can also access the connect tab through the action center.

Password Managers: LastPass vs: Windows Password Manager
I recently had an event, where I could not log into my BofA account on line. I had had this happen before with my Verizon account, and after doing some searching I found the culprit was the interaction between the websites and Microsoft's Password Manager and LastPass. Every once in a while they would not play nicely and get along. If I updated one or the other and inadvertently forgot to update the other, well, you get the picture. What I found yesterday though was really troubling. While making sure that my password in Microsoft' Password Manager was correct, I saw multiple accounts with multiple login credentials, that I haven't used in quite some time, and in fact should have been updated. But multiples? troubling to say the least. My Verizon was the worst with 5 different sets of credentials. Once I cleared all but the ones that I needed, all has been well. Same with BofA. LastPass has really begun to annoy me too. When I log into a site, it nags me with a screen that asks if I want to update that login info.... Seriously! Every single time! And every time on my Android phone if highlight something that need input it asks if I want to auto fill with LastPass. Sheesh! I've been using LastPass since Windows 8, and the

🤔 Have you ever wondered, what was happening inside your PC/Laptop if leave it power on for 10 minutes straight without doing anything or any open app/s. If you want to know. ✔ Open your TASK MANAGER (right click on the taskbar, choose Task Manager). ✔ click PROCESSES (if you don't see it, click MORE DETAILS on the bottom left). ✔ click either CPU, MEMORY, DISK or anything except name (lots to choose, if you right click one of those there is e.i. PROCESS NAME, PID, etc). ✔ leave it for 5 to 10 minutes (don't touch your mouse, keyboard & be sure your screen saver, is set more than at least 10 minutes. Sit & Relax you are the boss, let the manager do its job). *** Percentage(>10%) or colors changed, when it is working at your watch. *** Wait until percentage or colors normalize e.i. <5%. For RAM no movement. *** If a CERTAIN INSTALLED APP/s at the top of the list even you didn't use it, meaning it is RUNNING ON THE BACKGORUND with or without your knowledge. Here is the list of your TASK MANAGER DO. ✔ open EVENT VIEWER (type in the search box, EVENT VIEWER) ✔ click WINDOWS LOGS ✔ click SYSTEM (all KERNEL-GENERAL source, that's what your manager do). ENJOY!! HOWS YOUr MANAGER DOING ITS TASK...(that is why its called THE TASK MANAGER)
When I open the Edge Browser on my Surface Go 2, it opens with Bing, and MSN News as it is supposed to like my laptop, both are updated to the latest version, However the Surface Go browser on MSN seems to be stuck and wont let me sign into MSN. and won't sign in automatically like it should. It keeps saying that something went wrong and we can't sign you in right now. Please try again later. Then I get a message about too many authentication attempts. Never gave me one? The only difference I am able to see in the browsers is that the on the laptop when I click the profile picture there is browse as guest, and add profile. On the Surface Go however, I noticed one time that it wanted to log me in under one of my alias accounts, but I stopped that. But under the correct profile pic besides the browse as guest, and add profile, it also has a profile 2? I'm thinking that that had to have been my alias. So now how to get that off of there. I've done some searching and it would appear that I may be looking at going into the registry? Hope not! Open to Ideas guy and gals! thanks in advance

Every browser is lagging in my win 10 p c.
Hi.. This is Rajiv. I am having a serious issue here while using any browser in my windows 10 p c. Wheather it's Google Chrome which I used to prefer, Edge or Firefox. Every browser is showing a time delay of almost 30 seconds or even more to show up what I type there on search box or on my blog. Because i don't have any technical knowledge so I tried out on help forums like windows, Google, or internet and done a lot of steps to set up this problem like clearing cache and cookies, resetting to default settings, clearing history, updating chrome, uninstalling chrome, Firefox and reinstalling it. Deep disc cleanup, cleaning up even unnecessary system files, and last formatting window and updating it again. I cleaned up even every single app which I installed from internet and even files also. Now my p c is having only default files and apps which came with windows only. Even then I am having this issue and not able to use my p c for any work at all. I even tried a tech expert for this problem but even then nothing is working till now. Please help me in this issue. It will be a great favour to me. Thanks for your concern. Have a good day ahead
