In an effort to enhance and speed up changes to Notepad on Windows 10 it will be moved to Microsoft Store.  From Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18963 | Windows Experience Blog:

Making Notepad store-updatable

Notepad has been a well-loved text editor in Windows for over 30 years. Over the last few releases, we've been making a number of small improvements to Notepad based on your feedback (including expanded line ending support, wrap around search, and indicating when there's unsaved content.) Starting with this build, we're making a change so that future Notepad updates will be automatically available via the store. This will allow us the flexibility to respond to issues and feedback outside the bounds of Windows releases. As always, if you have any feedback for Notepad, we welcome it in the Feedback Hub under Apps > Notepad.

Other changes already made to Notepad include wrap around search, text zoom, search autofill, line numbers when using word wrap. search with Bing, and better UTF-8 support.

Security Alerts & Briefings / Re: Microsoft August 2019 Security Updates
« on: August 14, 2019, 02:10:38 PM »
via Twitter,

Microsoft are blocking this month’s security patching (inc RDP patches) on PCs and servers with Symantec and Norton AV as the AV vendors haven’t added SHA-2 support still

This applies to Windows 7, from KB4512486:
Microsoft and Symantec have identified an issue that occurs when a device is running any Symantec or Norton antivirus program and installs updates for Windows that are signed with SHA-2 certificates only. The Windows updates are blocked or deleted by the antivirus program during installation, which may then cause Windows to stop working or fail to start.    

Microsoft has temporarily placed a safeguard hold on devices with an affected version of Symantec Antivirus or Norton Antivirus installed to prevent them from receiving this type of Windows update until a solution is available. We recommend that you do not manually install affected updates until a solution is available.
Guidance for Symantec customers can be found in the Symantec support article.

Dev channel update to is live

The update has many fixes and new behaviors as well as new features, several of which are the following:
  • Added an option in Settings to choose between light and dark themes.
  • Added the ability to import cookies from the existing version of Edge.
  • Added a policy to enable deleting browsing data upon exit.

You (guess I should say, "I") wouldn't expect a Zoning Board to be using a malformed Outlook account unless it is the member's personal account, which doesn't seem appropriate for "official" correspondence.
