Windows 10 disabled me.
Before the windows 10 update i was reasonably computer literate. I have a bachelors degree (soc) and have been a regular online user since 2000. I could handle most tech issues, hook up a printer etc., make AND RETRIEVE my documents, up/download things, play my games, watch videos and play music just fine. After the windows 10 update I became technologically illiterate. I cant find anything because Microsoft organizes my files now, not me. I routinely get locked out of my accounts, apps and even my computers. I've had to do a factory reset on my machine twice now because i could not remember the password or which email i used for it. The machine is worthless without an internet connection. The language is convoluted, new words are not defined, the same word is used to describe different things or one thing will have multiple names. Often no words are used, just a symbol or an anacronym and it is not explained. New words are being invented and that's great, but they are never defined, just trotted on out like everyone knows what they mean, and when you finally do learn what it means THEY CHANGE THE DEFINITION!!! Near constant pop up? (thingies) distract me all the time, i cant finish one task before another app wants me to do something else. I used to only have to do heavy research if something was broken, now i have to google routine things like how to log in. I do not under stand the cloud system AT ALL and its getting worse. We got clouds in clouds now??? I did not realize how drastic a change this was until recently, when I had to drop an online masters program not because I did not understand the material (I'm an honors student) but because I NO LONGER KNOW HOW TO USE MY COMPUTER! Is there a class action lawsuit I can get in on? I want Microsoft to pay to put me through IT classes, it seems you now have to have an IT degree just to use a Microsoft OS. Can I go back to windows 8 or will there be a user friendly, functional update anytime soon?
Do you have more than one email address? 🖥📫
Literally, there are hundreds of free email services online. 👀I have five email addresses. Each email address has a different purpose. Job email, personal email for friend correspondence, personal email for online purchasing, separate email for android phone (don't sync to PC), and one for my online personal financial use. It doesn't get confusing because it separates my usages like separate filing cabinets in an office. Your thoughts? 🤔

Microsoft versus Chrome
I came across this analysis written by Lifewire concerning these two giants. The paragraphs below are just two that attracted my attention. 'Microsoft has decided to discontinue EdgeHTML and other core components of Microsoft Edge. Instead, the company plans to create a new version of Microsoft Edge based on Chromium. Microsoft is going to build Microsoft Edge on the foundations of Chrome, meaning that key elements like the rendering engine will be identical. What's likely to remain different are the connected services. For example, you may still sync your bookmarks with your Microsoft account instead of a Google account, and Bing will likely be the default search engine for Microsoft Edge. A common platform will make it easier for developers to create content and apps that are consistent across the major browsers'. Source: Lifewire - https://lifewire.com - February 2020 I fully anticipate that Edge' et al will have to evolve as users' demands for greater connectivity and dynamic use increases - perhaps exponentially. 🤔 Post script: I did not get on with Chrome - niggly things I suppose - but irritating as a user.
Really Microsoft? Money?
Back in the early days of computing, Microsoft had an actual program called Microsoft Money. While it wasn't perfect, back then it was pretty leading edge stuff.at least that and maybe more, when I downloaded this version. This is nothing more than a locked, and IMHO useless template, that someone put together. Quite frankly I'm appalled that Microsoft would allow their name to be associated with it. It took 2 tries to get my accounts in, but hey really that's ok. When it got done downloading my information, I noticed that not ONCE did it see what the category was that I had set on the banks page. I have set hose categories up over many years, and Mint picks 90 % of them up! Which brings me to beef #2 Categories! While you can add new categories and sub categories to the new categories you cannot 1: Add sub categories to the existing ones, 2: Your Added categories are separated from theirs, nor can you alphabetize any of them. I finally gave up after 10 minutes of trying to switch to another account, Whether or not that is because it is a locked template or not I don't know. All I know is that for now I'll be sticking with Mint, and hoping that Microsoft does a real program and not just an Excel template.! A Microsoft Fan Man that is SO DISSAPOINTED!
