    It's a shortcut to the Fonts Folder, pinned to Start from Control Panel.
    Ah, mine was Fonts from Settings...
    Shortcut from Control panel opens the folder (of shortcuts :)) Could be Controlled folder access issue. Disable and re-enable it

    Got on comp first thing this am to find all done! That is the easy way to do it!

    Sympathise with the people with sleep issues. My comp was one of the ones that had sleep issues with 8.1 so feel your pain and frustration.

    Edwin, did you break it again??

    It was fairly useless so I turned it off.
    You think it's useless to be able to pull up different chronological versions of documents and projects you work on, on different devices? Or to be able to work on a spreadsheet on one computer and continue on another device, without having to save it, copy it to a drive and then take that drive put it into the other computer and copy it over... I guess I'm in the minority. But from my perspective, this is the single most exciting feature of anything they have added in years. What this will allow us to do once it is fully coded and accepted, will change the way people are able to use their devices. The fact that it has some bugs in a beta isn't surprising. But useless? Lol. If you say so. I guess a more important discussion is whether my pc can sleep or not, or having an in depth discussion on rather a particular folder is included in a new updated build...

    I never tried Timeline but I'm curious. What's the difference between Timeline and just saving files to the cloud?

    With Timeline, your devices become the Cloud.

    First of all, Timeline isn't something you have to remember to do. It does this in the background all on it's own. And you can actually control if you don't want it to work with anything you're doing. What Timeline does is keep hourly chronological versions of your docs, spread sheets, projects, webpages, and almost anything that you looked at, worked on, or are reading or watching. So if I am working on a spread sheet at 8am this morning, and continue to update it throughout the day, Timeline will allow me at any given time, to go back and look at any particular version from any hour I was working on it. So if I made a big mistake on some calculations without realizing until it's too late, I could go back and pull up the version from before I did it. Or if I'm reading a book on my desktop computer at home, and later am sitting bored at the doctors office with my phone or tablet, I can pull up that same book on a different device, and right from where I left off. And the phone or tablet can be an Android or a CRapple device. It is an unbelievably useful feature, and can be revolutionary in almost every aspect of what we use computers and mobile devices for. And it's as easy as clicking the taskview button next to start, and scrolling through it. So when you put "Timeline" together with "Sets", this will be a gigantic movement in Windows. It will help me at work more than anything they have introduced since Windows 10 itself.

    Thanks for the explanation. I can definitely see how that being able to use what ever device you have available to go back in a project to a point just before a mistake was made would be a very helpful.

    You are correct! Will be awesome if they make it work properly. Personally I use proper version control software for this kind of stuff. But that's me. :)
