Q&A with CIPCUG Session 120

Microsoft Launcher for Android Phone

John Weigle   Is the Avast safe browser incognito mode automatically installed or does it have to be downloaded separately.

Andy Toth   I’ve been experimenting with a OneNote file filename.one. I put it my OneDrive folder on partition E:\. When I open the app OneNote that file does not appear in the file/folder listing. If I browse from the OneNote app the file, which is visible in windows explorer, is not visible. If I right click filename.one and use open with OneNote it opens. It makes no difference if I use the Windows 10 installed OneNote, or OneNote in Office 2016. I am logged-in with a local account on the computer. Then I log into my MS account. The file only exists in the OneDrive folder.

If I go to another computer and log into my MS account. I can see the cloud drive the other folders and files but

filename.one is not visible. Logging into OneDrive on my phone, I can see filename.one but, when trying to open, I get the message that it cannot be opened.
