  1. Windows 10 Task View / Timeline


    After years of flawless operation, Task View / Timeline now only shows accessed files word, excel, pdf, and so on and random web activity for instance, among 7 or 8 web pages I have accessed, it only shows one or two or even none at all.

    Any suggestions for fixing? I have already put every switch in Privacy to on.

    Thanks.

  2. Changes in Task View

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand your query related to Task View on your PC. I would like to know the version of Windows 10 that you are using.



    Starting with Windows 10 April 2018 Update Task View was renamed to Timeline with several new features that enhances Task View to show you currently running apps and past activities.

  3. Unable to sign in to Timeline within Task View

    Hello,

    Have a user that cannot sign into the "Timeline" within "Task View", for myself i click it and it does a MS account check and logs right in. For this user however it just brings up the "Your Info" page from within settings, which he's signed in with a O365
    Domain account anyways. It proceeds no where :{

    If this sounds familiar I'd appreciate any input

    Thank you!

  4. Windows 10 Task View / Timeline

    Timeline (after April feature patch): How do I see it? It is enabled, but there is nothing (Task View)

    "Activity history" in Settings has both options checked (collect from this PC, sync to cloud).

    According to a webpage that explains the new "Timeline" it should be in the "Task View". However, when I click on the Task View button I get - the Task View (as it always was). Looking at collected activity data for my account on microsoft's website shows
    a lot of entries.

    Where is the Timeline view hiding???

    For a feature that is listed as one of only four new main features of the April patch it is VERY well hidden!
