I am wondering if the WannaCry scare will result in more upgrades to Windows 10?
Would MS consider extending free upgrades of even pirated versions to Windows 10 S? Might be a boost to adoption and address a cyber weakness as well - something of a win/win situation.
I have been having a problem with Windows Mail (The built in app) that I was hoping the CU update would fix. It didn’t. The problem is the names of subfolders have been replaces with IpmSubFolder. I have tried deleting the account and reinstalling it without success. Seem there is some residual cached info that deleting doesnt remove. Where does Windows Mail store the messages locally

I was chatting with a friend and I was discussing when I might wish to upgrade my SP3. It is three years old and working fine. No breaks, no blemishes.
so this got me thinking what would compell me to upgrade. The SP3 has few moving parts. The obvious being the stand, the fan and speakers. If any of those fail, I will have to upgrade as a repaire wouldn't be worth the cost. I suppose if the battery fails to hold a charge, that would be another reason.
the perfomance boost of the newer processors is not compelling.
new feature may be. Hello didn't cause me upgrade the SP3 but I did get the type cover with the fingerprint reader.
what reasons to others value to cause them to replace a well working computer?
I woke up with a pending update. I am on the Preview Ring and it was the CU 1703
timing is everthing. Is this an April Fools joke?
The forum navigation needs some improvements.
One thing I find aggravating is when finishing reading the comments, I have to scroll up again to the where the comments started to choose the Premium Tab... a small annoyance but one that annoys often.
moving from comment to comment (next - previous) shouldn't require going back to the comments root to select the thread.
related - clicking on comments in the Thurrott Now sidebar should open the comments, not just the thread.
Where is the right place to post suggestions? is this monitored by the dev team for suggestions?
When clicking the COMMENT link, I would expect to navigate to the comments. Instead, I must scroll down and click comments again. the COMMENT link is should take me to comments.
Something I would like to see covered on WHW is how to survive with small storage Windows 10 tablets. what is a strategy for maximizing storage and have smooth Windows Updates? I have heard/read about:
- System Disk Cleanup to remove Windows.old backup
- Compress Drive
- Unlink OneDrive
are there other strategies that should be considered?
I have three accounts in my Windows Mail program - a Hotmail, Gmail and FIOS account. I recently noticed that instead of the account names, I see lpmSubTree for the Gmail and Verizon accounts. it has even started to replicate folders in the lpmSubtree...
wtf - this sucks. I deleted all accounts and reinstalled them but I see the same thing. I tried to rename the Account and it didn't stick... I may punt and go back to Outlook but before then, Any ideas how to fix this?
For video chat? I have to use Chrome (I may just cave and switch to Chrome) whenever I wish to use Messenger for video calls
I have mostly converted from Outlook to the new Windows 10 Mail app. I just noticed today that when I Send from Excel, it uses Outlook… Help, I prefer to stay in one mail ecosystem. How can I make Excel use Mail instead of Outlook. I do have Mail as the default Mail app, not Outlook! Where does Excel find the mail app to use?
I could uninstall Outlook but there are occasions where I have to use it to move mail between accounts and folders. For some reason Mail won’t let me move email from my Verizon account to a folder in my Hotmail account – I can do this in Outlook.
are you guys coming to DC for the Inspire?
will there be a Thurrott/Foley gathering to sample Beer be scheduled?
With all the new laptops and 2-1 choices being offered by OEMs, which provide the 3:2 display found in the Surface line?
I hope that some OEMs start offering the 3:2 display when my SP3 needs replacing. it is now 3 years old - and still running well. I like the 2-1's that hinge over with a real keyboard for my next machine but seems that Dell, HP and Lenovo are still providing 16:9 displays - I hope other can point out other options that are out there
I have a NuVision tablet. for some reason, it won't log me into Thurrott.com Premium account. I tried to clear cookies - still now luck. Clicking the log in button just fails to do anything.
I am wondering about the value of having the Display Dock for connecting devices other than the phone to a monitor and keyboard through a single cable. Thinks like 2-in-1s or tablets.
I believe that the Surface family are NOT compatible since they do not support USB-C but the future is clear that this is where things are heading. I expect SP5 and SB2 to support USB-C an hopefully Thunderbolt.
is the Lumia Display Dock a good value @ the $60 price ATT is charging or are there better choices — or just wait till I need one?
found this article http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2016/12/windows-phone-loving-shareholders-question-microsofts-mobile-strategy/
that I thought others would appreciate.
Can the surface 4 pen magnetically attach to a Surface 3?
Are the magnets in the tablet or the pen or both?
this will be interesting to watch play out

The yikes moment from the article
Yet, the overall market for wearable devices is experiencing turbulence. Worldwide sales for smartwatches plunged 52% in the third quarter compared to the same period a year earlier, according to a recent report by IDC.
Surely this is not a saturation moment - too early for that. Are fitness bands losing their appeal?
Perhaps this is common knowledge but I thought I would post here in case it is unknown to others
I recently read that Cortana can be activated over in-car bluetooth by dialing (555) 555-9876. I added that number to my Tundra and it worked. a Little clunky “Dial by name”, “Cortana”, but much safer than fumbling with the phone.
I have wanted something like this for a long time – only accidently stumbled across it while reading other articles. Nice feature
FINALLY received the transition to Outlook.com to Outlook Mail for my personal hotmail.com account. It looks nice. I added my FIOS and Gmail accounts to it and that seems to work well.
I wanted to add another outlook.com but that didnt work - it asked me to manually setup so I followed the instructions at https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Add-your-Outlook-com-account-to-another-mail-app-73f3b178-0009-41ae-aab1-87b80fa94970 under "Apps that support POP and IMAP" to set up an imap account, but that too failed. How can I add a second microsoft cloud email account to an outlook.com instance?
I have 4 email accounts that I used to access through Outlook. I have managed to move over to Windows 10 Mail but I am having some challenges that I hope others may be able to chime in on
While in Outlook I could move messages from one account inbox or folder to another account and folder. I do not see how to do this in Mail... Is it possible? Seems when I highlight messages and choose to Move, the only locations are withing that account and I do not see how to choose another accounts folder.
All Mail accounts are using IMAP
I posted a forum message and inadvertently didnt put in a Subject title. The message cannot be selected or navigated to because there is no clickable subject.
Will "Next message/Previous Message" buttons be added to forum navigation?
is there a way for me to delete one of my postings or edit it to fix things I notice such as the no subject line.
repost with subject:
I purchased the 8" NuVision tablet in the Windows store and I was surprised that the power settings only suported the Balanced option and there does not seem to be support for Sleep or Hibernate. I am continually finding the battery dead in the morning - seems to be continually draining the battery overnight. All that is open is Edge with tabs opened to a few websites (Facebook, CNN, ESPN, Thurrott, Windows Central).
why would Suspend and Hibernate NOT be supported? Is there something I can do to change the Power setting options? I would like to change the behavior of the power button to hibernate the tablet.
any expert advice would be appreciated!
