    Erratic File Explorer

    Method 3 works !! It is a workaround and does its trick. Also "Iobit Unlocker" works well. I would have thought that the "Eject" in File Explorer would do it without jumping the hoops to do it! For the time being I am still inclined to stick with my subject heading "Erratic File Explorer"...

    Erratic File Explorer

    The Windows File Explorer accepts a USB device in its proper way, and displays the content as expected. After I finished whatever I was doing with the USB device (Memory stick) I attempt to disconnect the device by rightclicking on the device ID. This brings up the "reject". Clicking on this...

    The evolution of OneNote

    I am glad that you agree that there should be only one MS ID and PW. But the fact remains that the 2016 version of OneNote rejected the login. Yet my normally used login ID and PW still work on other MS stuff. The disaster that my Outlook has lost all its contact info was a real pain, but like...

    The evolution of OneNote

    msolok : I followed your instructions to the letter and was successful to have OneNote2016 as an alternative to plain OneNote (the more up to date one) on my start page. But here is my problem: Using OneNote2016 requires me to sign in with my Microsoft account. I used the same ID and PW as I...

    You might be right, but let me regurgitate your info and let me express it in a form that my young grandson might be able to understand: I have an Account (ID and PW) registered with Microsoft. This enables MS to put data on a remote computer (it might be in Timbuktu, for all what I care) that...

    Discussions on sync (syncronization)

    It will take some time to digest the info given in the last two replies. But first I need some clarifications on some terms used. It is my understanding that an account is the gateway that permits entry to the data and tools of an app. You might consider it as a key (open sesame). So you don't...

    Discussions on sync (syncronization)

    I can do even better, I can add my Acer Laptop as well. It still would not enlighten me how the sync would accomplish the task when different operating systems are used. But to add one more question to the subject: I would like to know what apps can be synced and what cannot be synced. e.g I...

    Discussions on sync (syncronization)

    I have three active computers on my home network: iMac, Surface pro 6, and a Surface 2. They have each a different operating system, but each have OneNote installed. Making changes on one will show up on the two others. This surprised me somewhat, because I was under the impression that...

    Upgrade to Win10 Pro

    I have some difficulty in understanding the negative reaction of some for the lack of Win10 Pro. The added features of the Pro version are only useful for some and not every business users. The ones who desperately need to have the extra capability should easily afford to invest the extra U$...
