I opened the store on a computer I do not use very often to add a program from the store that I needed. Selected the "My Library/All Owned" option and was greeted with the message, "Add some apps. There's nothing in your library." I switched to the list of Installed apps, and a few, but certainly not all those installed showed up. The same list showed up in the Downloads view. Nothing displayed in "Ready to install" or "Included with device".
I then searched for an app that I know is owned and installed on my machine, and it was found, it was confirmed as owned and installed. I then checked for another app that is owned but not installed and it found it, confirmed it was owned and offered the Install option.
Is anyone else having this issue?
How can Microsoft screw up a list of purchases attached to an account? This is not a hard computer science problem.
Today, the Outlook web client is refreshing itself as soon as I select an email to read, as if selecting an email is issuing a postback. This clears the reading pane. It is happening on two machines. It began yesterday evening but I had other things to do and was not concerned. It basically makes the site useless. I can get by with the Mail app or Outlook desktop, so it is hardly a show stopper. Just wondering if others are having issues.
Has anyone gotten DNS over https working with Edge? I have enabled the flag #dns-over-https, but when I check at 188.8.131.52[/]help, it shows that I am not using DNS over HTTPS. When I check with Firefox, I get a "Yes".
My FiOS router is set to use 184.108.40.206 for DNS lookup.
Any other setting that I might need to check?
Is anyone else having font rendering issues in the new Edge? I am seeing random amounts of text display as hieroglyphics (more appropriately, different alphabets such as Thai, Khmer, Greek/Cyrillic, Kanji, Chinese, and generally slightly larger and bold) in the middle of paragraphs. Selecting the paragraph will correct the display, though the problem may pop up in a different paragraph. FWIW, I have no language packs installed on the computer.
I have reported it in Feedback, but cannot screenshot it because the screenshot functionality in feedback has been showing a black screen for the last few builds. I am running the Dev Channel. Classic Edge, and Firefox do not suffer from this issue. I have removed Chrome from all computers with the advent of (Chr)Edge, so I do not know if it is Chromium or Microsoft specific.
So, I was just setting up a new iPhone for my son, following the directions for "iPhone for the Windows Guy, using Microsoft Accounts"...and things have changed with iOS 13 and the Mail app. He has an outlook dot com personal email and an Office 365 account for school so it is easier to use Outlook.
- To get contacts to sync, on the phone, the Outlook account has to be added to the Mail app on the iPhone, not through settings.
- You can change the settings to not sync notes, calendars and reminders, but you cannot disable mail.
- You then delete the Mail app.
Just as the new Edge is about to be deployed, Google is phasing out user-agent strings in Chrome. Clearly, they are fearful of losing share, as other vendors use Chromium as the basis of their browsers. They can talk about how it is all about keeping sites from fingerprinting visitors; but all of the non-Google Chromium browsers must be cutting in to their data hoovering.
With the death of UWP, is there any chance that Microsoft will walk back the decision to force users towards the UWP version of OneNote, despite the fact that it is significantly less capable than the desktop version? It would be good to see a OneNote 2019 rather than have any more effort spent on a version showcasing technology that they are clearly walking away from.
Apparently, Chrome 75 was released with a hidden reader mode. Perhaps the first bit of Microsoft's additions to Chromium making it into Google's product.
Sort of surprised that Chrome did not have a reading mode, as it has been available in Edge and Firefox for a while now. Oh wait, it takes out the ads, never mind. I guess that is why they are hiding it.
Last week, I made the move from a Lumia 950XL to an iPhone XR (absolutely miss the camera button.)
Today, I received an email from Apple stating that I have used over 50% of my iCloud storage. I was bewildered, since I do not use iCloud for anything other than backups, and when I checked in settings, I was using 142.9 MB of 5 GB, or 2.8%. Maybe this is how they increase service revenue.
Every time I think I might be able to tolerate Google's behaviour, they do something like this. I guess they figured that if 2FA is good for authentication, then 2 Factor Opt-out is necessary to really tell them you do not want them tracking location.
Of all the things I am going to miss about Windows Phone, I think the single biggest is the lack of a hardware camera button. It is a small thing, but it makes such a difference for one handed operation.
Considering the amount of me-too features in phones these days, one would think that would have been recognized as an idea to borrow. If everyone can get on board with a notch, why not something that is actually useful?
End of rant.
I was just checking a photo in OneDrive from my camera roll, and I got an ad for ink and paper from Staples or Office Depot. It was a toast style notification. It appears the slippery slope is getting steeper.
Has anyone else noticed this?
Does anyone have a link to a the ISO for 1709? I have a computer that has failed to upgrade to 1803 several times, and I would like to take it back to a clean state of 1709. It is running enough Win32 applications that I would prefer to repair it rather than do a clean installation.
My wife has an older friend who is having technology issues, which, I think are related to even older hardware, and possibly a dial up connection.
I think the best solution would be a low cost laptop or a Chromebook. Windows 10S would probably be fine. An option for LTE connectivity would be great too. I originally thought an iPad would be good, but 32Gb is a bit skimpy for memory, and the 128Gb version pushes the cost over what they might be able to handle.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
So, the five user limit works just fine for the nuclear family. Currently, each member has a live.com address. I can find no information on how one adds the additional accounts, and if one can, if one does not have a custom domain.
If you have a custom domain, do you need to specify the new domain email as well as the existing account, in order to add it as an alias on that account.
If you do not have a custom domain, can you link the accounts at all?
