F'n Microsoft & Others...

1) pretty much solved the "not responding" problem...found an article about this, and although there are different fixes, I followed one guys recommendation, to go back to a default page that eliminates all toolbars and stuff...only have had it happen one time since ive done it, instead of 5+ times a day...

2)was looking at Chromebooks, for when im sitting on the couch early morning, drinking coffee, and playing with dogs...
I saw at Staples buying a new keyboard, a coupl weeks ago, and the guy showed me a Lenovo laptop, with SSD, on sale for $329...
$100 more, but has more storage, etc, etc. than the Chromebook.
I didn't get it that day, but we were at a different Staples, getting earbuds for my Grandaughter, and I saw it was on sale again, so I bought it...

returning it tmro...

spent some time over 4 -5 days trying to set it up...

kept locking up...first at "which country", then which "wifi", power down, power up, over and over...

then, next morning, when I turned it on, it said it looks like ive been having trouble...we'll do an update.

ok, so I get thru those problems, and it asks me for an email...OK...then it asks me for the password...NO WAY
so I go on computer and make one up
get thru that, and it wants my cell phone #...there is a "do it later" box, but wont do anything.
ok, so I put my phone in, and now it wont go any further till I install the Microsoft app...Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo...!!!
did that once before, and it changed my phone all around...

I guess its going to be a Chromebook...don't want to spend the money for a MAC...

one day, while I was in Uniontown, I stopped at that Staples, and told the tech guy the issues I was having...no help...I might as well talked to the janitor...

so, on Friday, I returned the laptop...at Greensburg, where I bought it...after the return, I went and talked to Dylan, the tech guy...told him the problems...
He seemed pretty knowledgable...said to eliminate email/phone issues, I should have clicked on the "make an offline account" tab...I didn't know what that was...!!!

I guess I might try another Windows laptop...

I wanted an SSD, but may go with the HHD...

I know they cost more but since I have started buying apple products my problems have gone away. Doesn't hang up. Got rid of that awful Internet Explorer/Edge Browser.
