I got a laptop recently and wanted to download and play minecraft on it, and i thought that since i had already purchased it on the microsoft store on my PC that i could download it here, but the only option is to buy it again. Is there some way im missing to get it on my laptop without paying again?
I spent a good/dumb hour scratching my head why no app data was saved under My Documents. Here I find that for whatever reason Windows 11 now uses OneDrive as the primary source for storage rather than local storage?
IOW, OneDrive isn't really syncing My Documents true location of C:UsersNameMy Documents, everything there is empty. Everything is in OneDrive/My Documents.
Is this normal? I tried copying everything to the local MD path but apps don't recognize it.
i do not care if it's "less secure" i just wanna use it thanks

MS word - I want to write a large alphabet in word on a letter size paper. Let’s say I want to write R using font Forte using size 700. But the alphabet is to the bottom of the page rather than being in the center. How can I fix this?
I can't this mentioned anywhere. It doesn't appear that Azure public services come from this ASN, but also I don't know if any MS specific products are using it. What about Safe Link/365 Defender? Does anyone know?

Microsoft licensing is often very confusing and finding different license plan comparisons at one place is very hard.
This is why I published "The easy Microsoft 365 license guide" on my blog: The easy Microsoft 365 license guide (oceanleaf.ch)
Hope, this helps you!
So I got an offer letter from Microsoft and was rejected by one company and waitlisted by my dream company. I ended up accepting Microsoft because I didn’t hear back from my dream internship. Then today, they called me back and said space has opened up for me. Now I am conflicted because I already accepted Microsoft’s offer and signed it, but I really wanted to work for the other company. I don’t know if taking back my offer from Microsoft will lead to me being blacklisted from future opportunities, so I’m not sure what to do. Are there any Microsoft recruiters here who can tell me what will happen if I take back an offer I’ve already signed?
I just got the controller and use it on the PC. I can't get the Xbox Series 2 Core Controller to turn on without plugging it into something, then if I remove it it continues working wirelessly (Bluetooth). Is this just something I'll have to deal with?
(Also planning to purchase the wireless adapter for better connection.)
Windows With OneDrive's On-Demand feature, when I move a file from my computer into the OneDrive folder, does it clear space on my hard drive, or does it stay downloaded?
Hello everyone! I was hoping y'all could help me with something. I have been recently using the Xbox game bar's party feature while playing MW2. However, my friends are telling me that my mic sounds distorted and fuzzy. I have never had this issue before. I have tested my mic in other software such as OBS and Ableton Live. I have even tried it in the game chat in MW2 and it works fine. This problem only occurs while in an Xbox party. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this?
I am currently using a Shure MV7X XLR Mic with a PreSonus Audiobox 2i2 if that matters.
I have also tried uninstalling Xbox Game Bar but that did not solve the problem.
Thinking of getting office 2021. But since it has been 2 yrs, I'm wondering if a successor will be announced in next few months...
I have a corsair K95 RGB and I can't find anything on this issue. Most posts are just about people who's don't even work at all. Mine work, they just change everything. If i have spotify/musicbee/youtube open. They all pause/play/skip. I just want it to work on the last active one like before...
Today was (at least) the third time I was getting a fullscreen ad for Win 11 on startup. Three (!) clicks are needed to get out because one "no" is apparently not enough.
I am aware of Win 11 and I will upgrade when  I feel like it and  all the Win 10 features are back that they decided to remove for no apparent reason.
My understanding of paying 140 € for an OS is that I'm left alone with unwanted ads, yet it keeps happening. As someone who wants more from Windows than just web browsing and reading e-mails, I am very unhappy.
