    PASSWORDS! on Windows 10


    This is my first post so here goes! Lately I have been so frustrated to the point of pulling my hair out over being "passworded" to death! I know there are more security risks, etc. than several years ago but I thinnk now a hacker would have abetter chance of getting into my files than I would! And I am also talking about my Galaxy A50 phone and my Amazon Fire Kindle. I have to do so many things to even begin to use my phone. I try to keep an up-to-date written list of my passwords, but they are hardly ever right. I think I have purchased 2 password managers but they are not behaving!! I would like some advice from some wonderful person out there who can maybe help me with this. Thanks so very,very much!

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

      • If you're using a Microsoft account, you can reset your password online. ...
      • If you're using a local account, use your password hint as a reminder.
