      UPDATE 7/29: We are very excited to announce we are releasing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22000.100 to Windows Insiders in the Beta Channel! We highly recommend Insiders in the Beta Channel check out this blog post from June 28th that highlights all the new things in Windows 11 to check out and give us feedback on as you use it! As always, be sure to check out the list of known issues in the blog post below on anything that could impact your experience on your PC. We have also added a few new known issues discovered from Insiders in the Dev Channel since the release last week.

      Register your thoughts in the Feedback Hub. If there are enough people voicing the same complaint Microsoft may change its stance.

      Wired or wireless?

      Is it all PCs?

      Feature updates only or monthly cumulative updates?

      @Charlie,

      You ought to check out T-Mobile internet service if they have good service in your area. It is relatively inexpensive. Not sure of the speed. They claim high-speed service. You can check availability on their website.

      Use the Feedback Hub to register your disappointment in the strongest but still polite terms. If enough people bring it up, Microsoft will entertain changing it.

      All of the hotmail, msn, live, outlook, and any other Microsoft variations have been migrated a long time ago to be serviced under the outlook.live.com umbrella. They are all essentially outlook.com aliases. No need to sign up for a new account. Anywhere you can sign on with an Outlook.com address you should be able to sign on with any of the other variations.

      Have her sign on to a different computer at home if possible. If that does not work,  have her change the password at home, sign on with the password at home, then test at the senior center. If it works then she is most likely not entering the correct credentials at the senior center.

      I think it will depend on why your system is not able to upgrade. Have you run any of the available tools that analyze your system and tell you why you can’t upgrade?

      Every email is saved in the All Mail folder. The other “folders” are just views of All Mail.

      I generally agree with Bruce. Going back to Windows 3.11, I can count on one hand the number of BSODs I’ve encountered. And a couple of those I know I caused when I was messing around with graphics drivers. I’ve installed every version of Windows since 3.11 on my personal PC. For a number of years, I was running every preview build of Windows 10 as my production OS. I switched to a VM last February with a new PC. When I find the time, I’m going to switch back to running whatever the preview build is at the time as my production OS. I do regular backup images of my machines so that I can recover easily should a disaster strike. I’ve gotten less and less concerned with tweaking WIndows and generally messing around with Windows. I just use it to do what I want pretty much out-of-the-box. I generally check for updates several times a week and let it update whatever is there. I’ve had one BSOD or GSOD since I started running preview builds and once again it was me injecting a video driver that was unstable.

      If you don’t check webmail first, you don’t know for sure that your account has actually received the email. It could be the sender server or another along the way that is delaying the email.

      No need for extended support when Windows 11 is released. Windows 10 will be supported until October 2025.

      Microsoft has claimed that each new version of Windows is more secure than its predecessors. That is to be expected. I would hope that they learn along the way and do not create more holes than they have plugged. Who would get a new version of Windows that proclaimed it was less secure than its predecessors?

      I guess that it has to be an Exchange account to have that tab. All my accounts are now Exchange accounts and each has that tab.

      The free upgrade to Windows 10 is still available too.
