    What % do you use the desktop vs. modern UI?

    My hybrid has a 3200x1800 resolution screen. Most desktop apps don't scale well at this resolution, but on the modern UI, the display is simply awesome. I use the desktop at 1920x1080 when I need to be productive. About 25% of the time, when I'm just chillin', I fold my machine to tablet...

With 8.1, my MS account is often "forgotten" by various apps, and I'm prompted to switch my local login to a MS account. I just sign into that app again, but this has gotten old.

    Disable saving copy of sent mail

    Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, that doesn't work. There are some 3rd party clients I might try, but I'm skeptical. I'll likely end up using Outlook.
