Re: Windows Does Not Detect The USB Drive Formatted In a Linux PC

Are you sure the USB memory is not corrupted? Do you see any error messages while connecting the drive to Windows 11 device?

Find The Phone Number of Your Google Meet Friend

This trick is cool Alex. But, it will not work to find the phone number if the google meet friend does not add it in public profile.
