OneNote 365, OneNote Web App, and OneNote 2016 - Parity?
For the life of me I cannot understand why there has to be three different forms of OneNote when probably like Excel one would do. Of course I understand that there are mobile versions of Excel, so lets not go there. The other day I decided that my Kindle Fire 10 needed to be replaced. I got my new one, and started in downloading Microsoft apps, like OneNote, from the Google Play Store. When I was done I opened up OneNote and noticed straight away that there was no Sticky Note icon on this version. If this is supposed to be the mobile version, then why is there no Sticky Note Icon? I also installed Office 365 app, and not to my surprise, like on my phone there was my Notes. When I'm on my laptop, I normally choose to use OneNote 2016, as it is more robust, even though I have to open a separate app to use my Sticky Notes, (WBTW I've come to rely on more than I used too) So let me ask this Why can't there be some parity for OneNote. I have the OneNote app on both my phone and tablet, as OneNote is not available in Office 365 on my tablet or phone, like it is in the desktop version of Office 365, but Word, Excel, Sticky Notes are?
How to speed up your computer?
It finally happened. My computer started loading sloooooooooowly, even settings was a problem to open. I tried disk cleanup as this article suggested: https://community.windows.com/en-us/stories/device-health . It worked. Previously though, I had to add RAM to my setup cause Forza Horizon 3 was stuttering.
Ability to create Local Account Removed from OOBE in 1903
Yesterday I attempted to set up my PC but during the New PC setup the computer refused to allow me to set up the computer with a local account, and it forced me to log-in to my Microsoft account to set up the PC. I even called MS support and told this was an intentional change and the only way around it was to login to the MS account, and then remove the MS account after I got into windows. I was able to work around this by temporarily disconnect my house's internet, and at that point it allowed me to create a local account, but it's absurd that the first time set up is now FORCING people to set up a MS account linked to their computer. I understand that MS wants to put pressure on people to do it that way, but TOTALLY REMOVING the option to create a local account is a low blow. I often reset my PC to help clear out the junk and get it running fresh, and I prefer to set up my PC as a local account during set up so I can specify what my user folder is named, and get a chance to disable some system apps like Skype that I don't want to run before I log into my MS account. (ps, since I'm not sure if OOBE is a real term or something I made up, it's short for Out Of Box Experience, the first time set up wizard that windows puts you through the first time it boots after installing windows or resetting windows.)
I had been hacked in the past; Xfinity provided Norton anti virus but, it discontinued that service. I wanted to use Windows Defender and Antivirus but without success, as I got a message saying "your organization provides antivirus". Is there a means to let Windows know that is no longer true, and get the anti virus protection?
How do you take screenshots?
Did you know with the Windows 10 May 2019 Update, you can set the PrtScn button on your keyboard to open the Snip & Sketch app? I find this to be the fastest way to take and share a screenshot. How do you take your screenshots? -Joe, Services Advisor at Microsoft

Generic Vs OEM Display Driver? Which one is better?
Hi there, As we know driver software is the essential part of our windows 10 os. And windows developer team countineous try to improve this for better experienc. I noticed that most of the important driver software update automatically vai windows 10 updater. But sometimes I noticed few of driver update still delayed. For example: I am using an intel display driver and I installed intel driver support and assistance app for updating my driver manually. So recently I noticed an display driver update pop out, so usually I update it through intel driver support and assist. But updating time I noticed it's a generic display driver and it overright my OEM customised display driver. So after carefully i sucessfully install it. But after that I didn't find any issue or missing any features. So my doubts is which one is better an OEM driver or Generic display driver?
