Probably just a coincidence.

Yes, this is cross posted to Mac and Windows. LOL So don't forget to
hit "Reply All" when answering this post.

A friend of mine has linked her SO's iPhone 6S, I think, to his Windows
8.1 computer. She did this trying to get the contacts from his old
pre-Android Verizon phone to the iPhone. She thinks she did this by
using Bluetooth, which makes no sense to me.

Don't ask me why she did this, and I don't want to ask! LOL

I have a previous thread in the Mac group about getting the contacts moved.

Now she would like to break that link between the two. I'm sure it can
be done. I use a Tracphone (mobile devices don't work where I live) and
have no other devices that will sync, and actually no reason to do so.

Her searches on the web have been unsuccessful, and she is smarter than
the average user.

Since I don't use any devices that do this, I don't know what terms to
use for searching to find out how to do this.

Anyone know of a good web site that has easy to follow instructions for her?


Unplug the USB cable Einstein.


Well, Einstein Jr., she didn't use one.

Idiot.

I was able to get her to run Teamviewer in the "run once" mode, which
means the program wasn't actually installed.


Well duh!

And then a surprise...


No surprie.

My conclusion is Acer hid it for some reason.


Completely irrational.

Apparently, OneNote would start for the SO when he turned the computer
on. And the iPhone was with him. Last night OneNote did not start, but
there's no iPhone in the house.


Hounting, huh?

After a cold
boot OneNote did not start, but we need to wait until the iPhone comes
home to see what happens.


Are you intentionally obtuse?

You can remove Metro apps, but it's a rather convoluted process.


Clearly for you.

So it's now a waiting game, waiting for the iPhone to come home and then
see what happens.


We're waiting with baited breath.

HINT: Tech Support ain't you strong suit.

Quite possibly. However, OneNote starting at bootup is a recent event,
not something that happened when it was taken out of the box.

Hence my thought it was something her SO did out of ignorance.
Apparently he does a lot of this. :-(

It seems removing the one file has solved the problem. OneNote hasn't
started since removing the file. It may not be the smartest way of
doing it, but it wasn't my solution either.
