Why is the Microsoft Rewards page so problem ridden?!
Microsoft Rewards...a great incentive...that is, when it works! Why are the so many buggy issues on this page? I've had 2 simultaneous issues lately. The most annoying is the Rewards Monthly Quest incentive. In January, I completed all punch card requirements, including the mobile search. It showed 4/4 weeks completed on all searches and daily sets, but the green arrow never showed, and I did not get the 500 point bonus. Now...in the February Quest, the mobile searches are not being counted again (Microsoft acknowledged this bug in January's Quest, and claimed to fix it...however, even though the 4/4 weeks showed completed, the green completion arrow never showed!) This month, February, the same problem is occurring and mobile searches are not registering! These are just a couple of the long list of bugs on the Rewards page. Another bug last month was the quiz deselection issue...when they asked for 5 selections to a question, the answers would deselect the previous selection each time...only allowing one selection and not completing the answer to the quiz question. Why so many bugs and issues on the Rewards Page?! Will these ever work correctly? Microsoft only knows! Why offer rewards if Microsoft doesn't make good on their offer?!
some problems installing updates (0x800f081f)
I have not been able to install any updates for the past 1 month. And this message show is happening. I have searched the internet for the last 1 month to solve this problem but the update is not being installed. I am a student of computer science myself. Try all command prompts. The update formats the registry. But this problem is not being resolved. I have given a manual window update but not installing "There were some problems installing updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may help: (0x800f081f)"
Update ver. 2004 Let's hear about your problems.
There are always tricks and hacks to bypass some unwanted updates and their side effects, and the previous update made the sound volume go up to 80% ,this time as well 80%. Some of you experience it too, and for those like me using headphones it's no joke, especially that the level i listen to music etc. is seldom beyond 6%. (Feedback has been sent by me many weeks ago.) The 2004 version finally prevents me from using the old search, where the results get updated as i type in the file explorer search box, and ever since i was ok with the search being slow or not showing all results, it was ok as long i did not have to take additional steps in order to get to any results. As of today i am literally forced to perform one more action in order to obtain the search results, which as most of you know, is by either clicking on the arrow in the file explorer search box, or hitting the enter key on keyboard. I may mention the tool i found today that is not the best, but is not missing any file out of the search results, is fast & allows a lot customization. The name of that search tool is 'Everything.exe' and can be integrated in the shell menu as well as in the file explorer drop down menu or mouse right click. This thing can literally search for any file and despite being set to use index created by windows search, it shows all files. After clicking on 'rebuild' which creates index from scratch the 'Everything.exe' did still show all files....so a 3rd party executable is capable of something widnows after all these years is not. This is just sad. The previous update asked me about location preferences and so on. Why do i have to select same check boxes each time? Now the last thing would be Cortana, which i disabled, but after the update not only the cortana symbol appeared on the taskbar, but cortana got enabled. Apparently Windows is about productivity, yet updates will not be complete unless i confirm some settings, and the search takes more time. Productivity?
Someone told me they were able to complete PC searches fron their mobile device/phone.. Is this possible? Is anyone else able to do this? If so please walk us through it and tell us how.

Character map extended characters
Is there a way to use the Unicode characters (key combinations like Alt + ****) for the "U+****" codes without having to open the "Character Map" and searching for and copying the characters?
File Explorer very slow!!
When I open file explorer it scans the C: drive. When I single click a file, it scans the C: drive. If I open or modify a file (change the name) it scans the C: drive. These scans vary from 5 seconds to 20 seconds, EVERY TIME. I searched Windows defrag with the start menu search button, it brings me to optimize drives. When I run the optimizer, it completes the process in 5 seconds... but i see ZERO change in the performance of my laptop. Secondly, video media I have that used to play smoothly, suddenly plays very choppy. If it does or does not have any relation to the above problem. Thank you, Nick
Funky as N&I is...
Funky as News & Interests is, personally, besides the weather on the taskbar, I prefer the Edge Widget. Can place it anywhere Can be vertical or horizontal (or just its Search/Address bar) Can be sized Can always show OR NOT Can search or go to a URL in it/from it. Its weather has more info Its content (Feeds) can be customized same as N&I & offering the same choices. N&I & the Widget are built on the same platform; they are the same thing, but different. Widget has functionality & abilities N&I doesn't. If you haven't explored the Widget, you really should. Cheers, Drew
