    I know we've covered this before but, how do you disable the "Last item that had mouse focus" rectangle?!
    I forget!
    Will Escape key work?

    The bank and the whole online banking ecosystem. No private data is stored...if someone try to hack their way in to an account. That person, IP and app would get banned from the servers forever. And the account would get frozen. Only way to unlock everything again is to go to the bank, show my face and some ID.
    And that's exactly why I won't use my phone. When I moved a couple states away, I contacted my bank and they said they were glad to leave everything intact. Soooooo, if my account should be "hacked at" through my phone and I had to go to those lengths to fix it, I'd be a goner.

    Bottom line is that there is no way I'll take that chance . . .

    Online banking might work a bit differently here in Finland, compared to the US...but I know I am safe.
    I have to go to bank once a month when my pension cheques come from Canada and I dread it although I must admit girls are nice. Also have to pick some cash because I don't have a machine close by. Everything else is done from my and only my computer over internet but passwords and pins I keep in my head. I keep my money in $CDN but have to transfer some to RSD (Serbian Dinar) because only that is legal tender here. I save a lot of money because bank charges for those transactions done in the bank but not online. There are multiple checks when banking and final code is sent to may phone which I have to enter on the bank APP on the computer or transaction can't go thru. There's a time limit of 15 seconds to enter that code and 3 minute limit to complete transaction.

    Anyone utilize the 'Phone Link' Setting?
    Yes and have been since devices have been registered in one's MS account. Not sure exactly when that was. 8/8.1?

    Haven't tried it yet, does it work with windows phones ?
    Yes. If you haven't, you should add it to your devices.

    I tested this with MS Word on Android. Continued on my Laptop in browser, in Word Online. :)
    Not sure what you mean by this. I keep some files and pics on OneDrive to access any time on any device. Unless you mean what Edwin means below.

    Yes but, that may be the Cortana 'Pick up where I left off' thing.
    Something else to learn I guess.

    So far as banking with phones > Use the app, not the browser. Apps are much more secure. If it gets hacked the bank is liable.

    Admittedly one thing that Windows phones lack is that few institutions don't offer apps for them. They simply don't spend the money to have them developed. I just wrote my $multi-million electric utility company that just released apps about why they have not one for Windows phone. I get the standard answer "We are not offering that at this time, but I will pass it on to the development department". Yeah, that'll happen.

    One of largest mobile phone and internet service provider here, Telenor, offers complete mobile banking service, just a virtual bank. They do everything normal banks do but no physical bank branch to go to. There are apps for all 3 OSs and you can use the phone at many stores just like with a debit card.

    Telenor is a really good company. Like them a lot. Used all their services they could offer when I was living in Norway for a while.

    I was with them for 15+ years but they started to screw with my account, changed contract as they wished, changed packages without my consent, stuff like that, so I had to switch to VIP which is Austrian owned. Saved bunch of money and got better internet at same time.

    I should have stated U.S. companies or at least the ones I deal with.
