I'm hating signing into to Microsoft it's horrible to use!
every single fudging time I am on a work's laptop or my home I am being asked to sign into Microsoft - I can't send a simple email or use app like skype without seemingly having to change my password or wondering what sodding account I'm signed up to - honestly it's horrible and so time wasting and confusing and unintuitive - how annoying can you be Microsoft?!! UGH
Apple iCloud (iCloud for Windows download)
Apple iCloud (iCloud for Windows download) does not automatically download new photos. The only time photos download is when booting/rebooting the computer and when logging off a user and logging back on. Is there a way to get photos from Apple iCloud to download photos automatically without doing this?
The latest Windows Community Newsletter email.
I found your latest Windows Community Newsletter email interesting . However, the features described in ‘‘A world without passwords for Microsoft account users on Windows 10’, and ‘Organize your email with folders and rules in Outlook’ don’t seem to be available on my version of Windows 10 even though I have the latest update (1st July 2020).

Parental controls and Microsoft Spying
Why does Microsoft make you sign into an account in order to use parental controls in Windows? Why not just have the parent be able to control the computer by NOT allowing changes to the Hosts file (which a 12 year old can easily figure out)? Why isn't there a way to set yourself up as an Admin and PREVENT your kid from changing it by simply resetting the BIOS or some other method? I think it is because Microsoft makes money when the kid is on-line gaming, etc. Thus, there is no real incentive other than to make the parent set up a Microsoft account so that Windows can collect "basic" data and sell it.

Windows product key verification
Hi there, I have a laptop that came with Windows 10 Pro. I use my pc for work, the company added a work user as the admin on my PC. When I leave the company they will remove that user and its information, which is fine. The problem comes in that I once this has been done I want to do a PC restore, so that I am sure that any permissions or restrictions etc they've put on are removed. What I'm worried about is that I don't know if the laptop originally came with Windows 10 Pro or whether the supplier simply upgraded it to Pro. I have found my product key using the CMD function, but I was wondering if there is any way I can verify that it is in fact a Pro license and not a Home license. Please assist if possible on how/where I can verify this.
