What do you use for your desktop background? Lock screen?
What do you use for your wallpapers? I've been using Bing Desktop, which changes your desktop background every day to the lovely pictures provided by Bing (they also do the daily pictures on your Lock Screen before you log in). I would say many users I see (I work in a Microsoft Store as a Services Advisor) usually have some place they went on vacation or a picture of their family. I've even seen some people have a slideshow as their background, to change to different pictures on an interval.

Friends Email Problem
I have a friend in the "Bible Thumpin" South that I get email from. Lately though I've been getting emails from her name but with a totally fictitious email address. I alerted her to the problem and she said that she would get with her tech people down there an have them look into it. Last week, I got another one, but this one was to me at an email address that I only used for less than a month when I first when on Facebook to get info on out upcoming class reunion. It was an oops moment using that email address and I changed it within a short time. That was telling me that whoever is spoofing her if using her Facebook account friends. Agree? I again alerted her. Received an email back and she replied that her HP guys couldn't tell her why that was happening, and that no one else had said anything. She's running Windows 10 and has her email @Yahoo.com. "Light bulb" going off... She needs to call Yahoo or Verizon not HP! So besides the usual virus scans yadda yadda. Anything else I can have check.... More minds are better than one. Thanks All
My Ode to Outlook Client
I started out using Microsoft Internet and Mail, which was then morphed into Outlook Express which then became my main mail handler back in 1996. Over the years there have been many good and some not so good changes to the product. In 2010 when the whole of the internet really started to change, Microsoft made some of the worst changes to Outlook. IMHO Microsoft really screwed Outlook up. Functionally it was still the same, but navigationally it was a total mess.( Yeah, I’m talking about the original “Ribbon”) I guess I wasn’t the only one that though so, because what we have now is an easy to navigate tool email client again! Now that I am retired, I still find Outlook invaluable. While there have been many fantastic enhancements to the email side of Outlook over the years, Microsoft in their infinite wisdom did not change the one that was and still is invaluable to me. It is so invaluable that it keeps me from using their other Outlook, or the Mail and Calendar. You see in the Calendar when you set up an appointment or meeting, you are given the option of setting a reminder. Now while you can set a reminder in the other Microsoft Mail products, those reminders are preset, and cannot be change. With Outlook if you need a reminder in 45 minutes, or if you need one in 2.5 hours, you can change that to that time or for that matter to any time that you may need. Microsoft, thank you for not changing that. If you were to bring that one feature to your other email programs, apps, whatever you want to call them, then even an ‘ole $%art like me might start using them, although I doubt it though, muscle memory you know! Really enjoy the mail Quick Steps as well
Since the last windows update I've not been able to switch between audio outputs. Normally I can click on the speaker icon and change my output from there, but now it just doesn't switch. I have a 4 channel sound card plus a link to my Bluetooth speakers Anybody else having this problem? Dave

Email: the more things change the more they stay the same
I started really getting into the internet back in the early '90's. When I got connected I had my US Robotics 33.6K modem, an independent ISP, Netscape, and thought I was the cat's pajamas.. Ha! The ISP gave me a disk that contained everything I needed to get connected, and to set up an email account. Wow! It didn't take long for the junk email to start rolling in. I called and asked, and was told how to get rid of it but that didn't stop it to my satisfaction. I went to a different ISP, and he showed me what to do, and explained how to do it, so I could teach my friends, so that they wouldn't fall into the same trap that I had. I won't explain that suffice to say that it was a lesson learned and it is no longer really applicable. So why did I bring it up? This morning I received 2 emails. One was from and old friend of mine and was addressed to me using her name, but not her email address, and was addressed to an email address that I first signed on to Facebook with, over 10 years ago, and changed it immediately there after. Other emails using her name have come to me using my correct email. I told her about this but apparently she has done nothing. Too bad. Also I received an email from PayPal telling me my account was in jeopardy of being closed because of some total nonsense. I looked at the email header and with a laugh forwarded it to firstname.lastname@example.org. People please, it's not rocket science. If an email sounds to good to be true it probably is, and if doesn't look right check it out, and by all means do not give out personal information ever in an email. Microsoft Outlook 365, Outlook 2016, and Microsoft Email all have made it extremely easy to add these senders to your blocked senders list. Please do so, and protect yourself.
