Below are some notes on our progressive study of Windows 10 in the classroom. And additional problem solving for unrelated Windows 10 issues

  ONE DRIVE querks
On a personal note, I have been using One Drive for photo sharing and for writing documents into the Cloud. I have discovered some revisions of my files that I cannot reverse.
First, if you MOVE your photos to One Drive, some programs you have for editing ( Photo Gallery ) cause the program to stop working. Maybe it’s just my system , but I doubt it.
Another problem, is with documents. Once you edit this file in the Cloud you can only use either the Cloud Word version or Word 2007. Since I don’ t have Word 2007 , I'm stuck editing it in the Cloud. The features I wish to work , like table indexing or table of contents are not able to work in the Cloud version. The choices in the Cloud version are limited. , 

Windows 10 Facebook Connection is no longer available

Q: Before upgrading to windows 10 I was able to connect facebook photos to my people contacts. I can’t anymore. What happened ?
A: Facebook has made an update to their Graph API that will impact Microsoft apps and services. Facebook’s Graph API is the tool that we use to connect your Microsoft account to Facebook. It brings contact information from your Facebook friends into and the Windows People app, keeps those contacts up-to-date, and provides options in apps and services like Photo Gallery, Movie Maker, and to share to Facebook. We collectively refer to these features as Facebook Connect.
Due to these changes, Facebook Connect features will no longer be supported. This article explains how these changes will impact your connected apps and services.

Where Can I Find the best Free Apps?

Google play has a great number of Apps in a variety of  categories. Here’s a good resource for Apps in general from Digital Trends. These are for androids and mobile devices.  
    How Can I use Photo more effectively in windows10 Photo App
What you can do now is organize your photos into Albums. Albums are automatically created for images from certain sources, such as your camera roll, saved pictures you've edited, and screenshots. Like Google Photos, the Windows 10 Photos app also creates Albums for you; for example if you import a bunch of photos of a friend at the beach it may create one, but it won't include all images.

Save and Share Your Photos
When you're done editing a photo, you can either update it or save a copy. At the most immediate level, Photos has a button that will start playing a slideshow of your collection. An odd thing about this feature, though, is that you can only start it from an individual photo view, rather than from a group of selected photo thumbnails.
For sharing further abroad, you can tap the Share button to open a panel populated by any apps that can accept photos, including Mail, Facebook, and Twitter (assuming you have those apps installed). Helpful for this kind of sharing is the app's multiple selection button, so you can select a bunch of photos to slap up on Facebook in one shot.
