Will You Save Your System or Format it?
Let say you are facing a technical problem in Windows and you have the following options: 1) You could just format and reinstall Windows (e.g. using reset or refresh) and reinstall and recover everything and go back to world. 2) You will work on find and fix the problem and solve it without formatting your Windows. The first one might be easy but you will need to reinstall everything and second one might be time consuming but you won't go for reinstall and recovery process.

Why do I have to keep signing on to One Drive?
I have Windows 10. Ever since an update in September I get these message several times a week from notifications-it used to be every day. "We need to fix your Microsoft account (most likely your password changed). (NOT SO) Select here to fix it in shared experience settings". Sometimes I get the message that I must be using a new device. (NOT SO) Anyway I got to setting and check "Fix" Then I sign in with my email and password. Then I have to wait to get an email with a code. If I use my computer, I have to sign in to my email which wants 2 step verification so I sign into another email to get that code. On an on it goes. It is very frustrating. Even after going through ALL the steps, if I want to save a Word Document (Word 2019 not 365) I have to sign in to the cloud again. The nerdy computer help for microsoft can't understand my question of she will connect me with a person, then after a few minutes it times out and says try again later. I am at my wits end and considering buy an Apple Computer.
What one piece of advice would you give to a new user?
Say someone had never used Windows before, what piece of advice would you give to them knowing they are starting from scratch? As someone who works as a Services Advisor in a Microsoft store, I'd personally make sure they knew that the left click is for selection of items and the right click will (usually) give you a menu with more options. I see a lot of new users struggle with that.
