new Edge Chromium: no feedback capability?
hi there: I remember when I was using the Edge Dev. and when I needed to send a feedback, I was able to do it from the upper right corner. Now, when I installed the new Edge Chromium, I couldn't find anywhere where I can send a feedback. Where did it go? I am in the In-Private mode. Please see the link, https://i0.wp.com/www.windowslatest.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Microsoft-Edge-Dev.jpg?ssl=1. There is a smiley face in Edge Dev. on the upper right, just to the right of the user account logo. But the new Edge doesn't have it. That is why I want to know if they taken it out or it is hidden?

in place upgrade vs. reinstall
Sometimes, our devices may run into issues that doing the sfc /scannow command or creating a new user account, etc. will not fix the issues. Here are two popular methods to fix problems. 1) in place upgrade: What is an in place upgrade? It is basically reinstalling Windows while we get to keep our files, folders, settings, etc. It basically gives us a fresh couple of the Windows system files. Meaning, we might do the sfc /scannow command and it found corrupt system files that cannot be repaired. The in place upgrade will give us fresh system files. pros: We do not lose any files, folders, settings, etc. when choosing the in place upgrade. cons: When choosing this method, it will take a while to complete. It requires several restart of the device. If the device has a good CPU, etc., then it will be a little quicker but will still take time to complete. p.s. After the in place upgrade is finished, we might have to update few drivers again. Usually, the in place upgrade will revert the newer drivers to the previous ones. Remember, it will create Windows.old. That will take a lot of space. The best way is to go to storage under settings and Storage Sense to delete Windows.old. You can free up over 10GB of temporary files and can regain some C drive disk space. 2) reinstalling Windows 10: What this does is basically reinstalling Windows 10 again. Giving us a fresh start. pros: This method is usually quicker than the in place upgrade. cons: The cons of choosing this method is it wipes out everything. p.s. When choosing this method, I generally only wipe out the C drive but do not wipe out the D drive. If you want to choose this command, I suggest you to copy everything in the desktop or if you have put files, folders, etc. in the C drive to a portable drive. Also, download the bookmark from Edge, Chrome, etc. and save it to a portable drive. It is because after reinstallation of Windows 10, they will be gone.

Windows Mail Contacts
I am using Microsoft Mail with my Windows 10. for a hotmail account When I am sending mail I sometimes use the Cc or Bcc . Names and email addresses come up that are not in my list of contacts. They appear to be old contacts and with old email addresses that I do not use. I can not find a way to either change or delete them.
I experience lagging on Windows 10.
I am a Windows 10 user. I experience lagging and my computer has slowed down. I tried the following tips given in your website ( https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/tips-to-improve-pc-performance-in-windows-10-b3b3ef5b-5953-fb6a-2528-4bbed82fba96 ). What am I supposed to do right now ?
Donating with Microsoft Rewards
I have been using my points to donate to a non-profit charity, ReLax Collections, to help promote education around the world. It took me 6 weeks and 5 different "helpers" from Microsoft to finally tell me 1. if the money was actually donated to ReLax Collections. The money was debited from my account but the charity had no record of receiving the funds. After repeated emails back and forth I finally got the answers. Shame on Microsoft for taking 6 weeks to donate the funds and having 4 agents answer my emails with the same generic responses.
