is it necessary to use Outlook as the default email client?
I keep getting the following "error message" after startup of my Windows 10 desktop system: "Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please run Outlook and set it as the default mail client." I have 2 email accounts that work just fine without Outlook being installed. Why do I need to install Outlook?
Project to your PC screen
Windows 10 comes with yet another great feature. You can project another device to your PC screen. Though most devices are not designed to be projected to, it is possible. With this feature, instead of just projecting to your PC, you can also control the device from your PC. I find this best helpful when you would like to monitor someone else's PC, like a minor. Unlike Remote desktop, the device does not need to be connected to the same network as your PC. Such like devices include Smartphones through Miracast and other PCs through Miracast or intel WiDi. All you need to do on your PC is click on the start menu or search and type 'connect'. The app will appear and open it. Before connecting, windows will open the 'projecting to this PC' setting and confirm if your PC is compatible with Project. if it is compatible, change the settings to your liking. Once done, Open the connect app and on your other device, if a PC, click Windows key + P and select connect to a wireless display. On the connect tab, yo will see your PC's name. Select it and follow any instructions required, and enjoy your connection. you can also access the connect tab through the action center.

In Cyberpunk Photo Director
All the sudden in Cyberlink Photo Director when I click the Print icon it won't print, it will only say; save file. Even when it is saved to file you still cant print the picture. Nothing has been changed because you can't change Cyberlink Photo Director settings. I have gone to Cyberlink site and there isnt any info about this problem. Mine is version 5 and you cant even message a question because they want to know which version I have from there drop down box and version 5 isnt listed. I uninstalled then reinstalled it yet it is still the same and I use Windows 10 that was already installed. I contacted HP which is my brand and they said since it is a third party app. They cant fix it. Anyway I just wondered if anyone has had the same problem or knew a fix. Thanks, Sidnee
I'm not technically inclined.
I rely on my Microsoft Windows ten 🔟 to solve most problems and 99% hasn't let me down. I will not insult the Technician's intelligence by presuming to suggest how to better the system. I do want "people-friendly" included in the future. People such as myself are not Technicians.
HP HP Stream laptop
I am looking to find a way to update my window 10 since I have HP Stream laptop that my wife order from HSN. It hasn't be update for awhile no matter what I did by following all the instructions on almost every available website or using Youtube. I do have an external drive but it will not let me use it to update my window. I rather do this the easy way then to follow someone instruction that contains too many pages to follow. I need the quickest way to resolve this unless I have to pay for a remote assistance to repair this laptop.
Shoutout for Microsoft Teams 🤩
We are more than aware of the ongoing situations with CoVid19. ☹ Many people have been confined to their homes or, self isolating for their health protection. For those people who are confined (like a contributor to this platform) as an example, they are able to carry out their job responsibilities from home because many of us live in a connected world. This could not have been possible without the advancement of computer technologies to the level as they are today. Just imagine this kind of situation 20 years ago?! Having just been contacted by an individual who is working under these conditions, they expressed the opinion and I quote 'thank goodness I am able to do this'. My colleague is using Windows 10. So Microsoft please accept this person's thanks. Guys you are cosmic 😃 and so are the people using this platform, offering their help and advice to other contributors - co cool .
Time for a joke!
What do you call me and other people on the Windows Community who love math? The answer will be posted later.
What do you think of Microsoft's UI Design?
Since Windows 8, Microsoft's taken the lead in pioneering modern UI design standards. The goal seems to be to make a cohesive touch-friendly UI across Windows, with an emphasis on flat, sharp elements and icons as well as tiles that have defined a lot of Microsoft's design language. With the inclusion of fluent design, subtle references to skeuomorphism, like lighting, highlights, and texture have been added back to Windows, without compromising any other modern design guidelines. These efforts are commendable, and demonstrates Microsoft's progressive design standards. However, the focus on mobile-friendly and touch-friendly interfaces has become concerning, especially since new designs have changed from a mobile-first to a mobile-only style. Large fonts and buttons, excessive padding, and limited customizability might be fine on mobile apps because mobile devices are limited, and more difficult to work with, but these same design elements are hostile and inefficient to mouse-and-keyboard users. If you compare Windows 10 apps to their Windows 7 counterparts, you can see that the newer apps take up more screen space while doing more or less the same function. This is a problem. A focus on Mobile-friendly design should not ever mean mouse-and-keyboard unfriendly, especially since this is the primary method of input on desktop computers. I was once especially fond of the Microsoft Office interface as an example of crisp, modern design that does not compromise mouse and keyboard usability. Most importantly, Office came with a "touch mode" and "mouse mode" option, creating the most optimal interface for each input method. However, the latest redesign of the Office ribbon seems to move further and further from these sensible design guidelines. The new simplified ribbon has no changes for mouse and touch mode, along with a host of other issues. I'm concerned over the direction of Microsoft's UI design, and I'd like to bring up these issues for consideration.
