    Take Screenshot mode - security?


    I'm liking the take screenshot mode available on the new version of Firefox! However, are there any security concerns I should be aware of? When you take a screenshot, you're given the option to save the whole page, which I think works better than trying to save a complete webpage. If you do opt to save the whole page, you're given the option to copy (so you could paste into Paint for example) or 'download'. Question is - would you be comfortable to do this - either copy of download entire webpage - if you're working on say bank applications of anything else with personal information on? Whilst I'm on security - how safe is it to print to / save as PDF using PDF Creator - again when working with sensitive information?

    :)

  2. Unable to access Windows Security after switching out from Windows 10 S mode

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We understand the concern as you have switched out from Windows 10 S mode to Windows 10 Home and now you are having difficulties in accessing Windows Security.
    In order to get clarity and to assist you accordingly, please reply with the answers to the questions below:



    • Are you getting any error message/code while accessing Windows Security?
    • How did you switch out from Windows 10 S mode?


    Please help us with the screenshot of the Activation
    window (Press Windows + I key and select Updates & Security > Now click on
    Activation from the left pane) and Windows Security
    window where you are redirected to Microsoft Store for further investigation. (Please follow the steps mentioned in the
    screenshot posted
    by Shawn ‘Cmdr’ Keene on Oct 2, 2015 to post the screenshots.) Do not share any personal information in the screenshots.



    Meanwhile, we would suggest you to perform these steps and check if that helps.



    Step 1: Run DISM & SFC scan

    We would also suggest you to run the DISM & SFC Scan tool to check if there is any windows file corruption causing this issue, refer this article:

    Lock vs Login screen screenshot

    Hi Josey -

    Thanks for the quick reply. While your suggestion does change the sign in process, it doesn't address the differing screenshot question. Following the steps doesn't make the login screenshot the same as the Lock screenshot. As I mentioned, I can't even find the screenshots being used for both screens.

    Still looking a solution to this. Open to any other suggestions you might have to the problem. Thanks!

    Take Screenshot mode - security?

    Corporate Security Solution

    That made me so facepalm. Some people have absolutely no clue. I hope they don't take you for granted with all this you're doing for them.

    SonicWall is a good security product, so Mindweaver's suggestion sounds like a good one and should make for a rather bigger baby step. Let's hope they take it.
