    Im looking for a way to use my Windows Phone (LUMIA 950) with my PC in a way like AIRDROID for android or all the Apple thingies.

    --> PICK UP PHONECALLS / START PHONECALLS on my PC
    --> write SMS on PC and send over my phone
    --> click contact in my outlook 2013 and lumia starts phonecall.

    anyone any ideas - not even anniversary update brought something like that.

    You can do the SMS from Cortana on PC. It used to sync SMS with messaging app on PC but that was ripped out of the later builds because it will be in Skype soonTM

    The other stuff might be on the way but I've not yet seen any feature lists for Redstone 2.

    Agreed, a year ago the buzz word was device integration. we liked it and they dropped it with only vague promises of future support.

    This bug was introduced by version 1607, which corrected a translation bug in version 1511 : scan with Windows Defender was translated as "Numériser avec Windows Defender" (Digitalize with Windows Defender).
