But I hope I’m wrong. Not particularly exciting, is it? I never liked Aero, and I feel the same way about Fluent. I turn off as much of this annoying stuff as possible. Time will tell. As for the People thing, I don’t like anything on my task bar because I don’t use the task bar. I don’t keep anything on my desktop, either. It lives on my Start Menu or remains in the All Apps area. The People app works perfectly fine for me. Finally, regarding Cortana, I’ve written on this issue many, many times.

I rely on Cortana on my Lumia. I prefer hands free use over all else. I want the Iron Man experience. Cortana is unique entities on the Xbox, the PC and the phone. Cortana has almost no clue about its other “selves” on these devices. They are unique front ends that happen to share, sort of, a back end. If Cortana is configured to listen and respond on multiple devices, they should ALL immediately be able to recognize when the same command was given by the same person at the same timethis requires that Cortana needs to do a MUCH better job of recognizing MY voice versus someone else’s which it currently doesn’t, regardless of how much training it gets 3.

When multiple devices receive the same command from the same person at the same time, Cortana needs to either recognize that a particular device may be the ONLY one that can actually execute it as in some Xbox commands OR it needs to ask you to clarify which device to respond through. Example: “Hey, Cortana, what’s the weather like tomorrow? Cortana: “Which device would you like this on?

Similarly, Cortana needs to allow you to INCLUDE where you want a particular request executed as part of the command when multiple devices can hear you and could respond. I don’t understand why Microsoft can’t seem to understand this. The technology is here. There’s no way I’m buying yet another piece of hardware. It’s just stupid. I have every flipping device in my house using Cortana and they are ALL always listening. There’s no excuse for me not being able to interact easily already.

Do you use the same Microsoft account on all of these devices? Have you allowed Cortana to have full learning access? Scubadog I hear you about the Cortana comments – they talk a lot aboit it’s “AI” but it has not quite “got it” yet – and my gripe is MS generally about some stuff it has for defaults hide known file types in File Explorer- really – then tell people to avoid.

EXE files! I am surprised you dislike desktop icons! I have used them ever since 3. I know that from the early days of W95, a lot of people with low-end desktops thought that having more than a dozen on the desktop screen affected performance, but that does not apply today. Your ahead of the program here.

Marketwise, these devices are not on the market as of this time. I guess though you might be onto something that will futuristically be problem. I just want them to work on making it feel less like a beta. I’m enjoying Windows 10 but there’s always something that feels unfinished about it, especially when using it on a tablet like the Surface Pro. There’s still no singular vision for it and it still doesn’t know whether it wants to use modern or legacy settings and everything feels a bit of a mish mash.

Forget this kitty crap. Don’t need morons at the helm at Microsoft. They need a phone maker willing to use this OS. My Samsung Windows phone was pretty good, as well as the Nokia one. Both were better than Apple and more secure than Android. I really like my Lumia XL and don’t need a new phone yet. I always found plenty of good utility apps, and don’t play many games.

Banking apps never came. Still, they have killed all those relationships as well as their relationship with the biggest carrier in the US Verizon. I tried to move my Lumia to Verizon and they refused. A few years ago when a friend was showing off his new iphone with Siri, to search for information, I demonstrated the same function with my Samsung Windows phone with better results.

It made no difference because the Apple bias was too strong. Continuum is still not fully functional, fine for Office apps, but video streaming apps are not supported. If Microsoft wanted to have a phone, they could buy some Samsung, HTC, or other hardware and put Windows on it, but the press would still say there aren’t enough apps. Hardware is absolutely useless without software. How can RS4 be the “next scheduled update” when RS3 hasn’t come out yet? Still no switch of telemetry option and still no kill cortana option.

I would need that and complete control over updates before 10 can even be an option to consider. That would be a good start, but there would still be a lot of work to do, from a desktop perspective. I want the ability to remove not just disable every ‘app’ and anything that uses Modern, UWP, Fluent, or whatever you want to call it as a “design language. I don’t use touch screens, so none of this is an improvement; Windows already had a UI designed for mouse and keyboard, and that will continue to be just fine for me.

Moving from a UI designed exactly for my usage paradigm to one that aims to be a master of all trades in order to accommodate dissimilar form factors I don’t care about at all is not an upgrade, and universal-fit items whatever they are are always inferior to custom-fit ones. Every new announcement of this half-year’s upgrade misses the basic glaring deficiencies and instead adds more useless garbage that only serves to increase the distance between where the product is now and where it should be.

It just gets worse and worse Does MS understand the difference between an OS and a social-media website? The stuff they’re talking about has no place being part of the OS I have to use Windows 10 as windows 8.

I do not know if this is something MS have done to stop people using older versions of Windows on newer hardware or just something to do with my hardware, it did get better when I updated the UEFI, but still crashed now and again. I know Ms have put a block on updates for Windows 7 and 8.

As for Windows 10, cortana can be done away with, but it would be nice if there was a proper option to do it, most of the apps can be got rid of, including the store, using the powershell, but you can use thrid party software like ccleaner whihc is easier like I have. Edge you can not get rid off, but I never see it, just like I never saw internet Exploder on older versions of Windows. MS idea to split the control panel is a pain, they should have either kept to the control panel or go with the settings, this is one of the reasons I class windows 10 as not being compleated and we are the beta testers.

I agree that there are a lot of stuff on windows 10 that do nto make it better, in fact some just get in the way in my opinion, MS really should make it easier to get rid of stuff we do not rerquire..

Look at this Story remix thing, is it really needed? Just a gimmic, fine if people want gim micks, but all I want is something to show photos like a preview, so give us the option Ms, stop shoving rubbish like Story remix in our face. My main problem with Windows is the telemetry, while there is software that say they stop it I wonder if they do, still even if it stops some of it and giove false readings to MS, that is not a bad thing.

End-to-end encryption? Mobile stuff? Mobile will probably get a new wallpaper and another ringtone. How about HomeHub? Improvements to Mixed Reality Platform? And ARM support, is that on a different kind of versioning scheme?

Is RS4 going to be a smaller update to basically pick up on some stuff, because they are actually focused on C-Shell and Andromeda?

Or maybe they will shift to a different code name than Redstone once C-Shell is ready? The moment when Microsoft’s front is arid desert for some time now. Absolutely nothing for the general public to get excited by. Places like this website and such have nothing to write about except Jason Wards imagionation essays. I am starting to feel this site is becoming more and more obsolete for daily visiting, even weekly.

Sounds about right. Not sure about Cortana. I’m looking forward to see more improvements of the tablet experience in rs4. The option is longer available but you can get access by tweaking the registry.

You can now pin more than three contacts to the taskbar, and you can organize contacts pinned by dragging their icon left or right. What’s more, you can drag new contacts out of the My People Hub and directly onto the taskbar, and vice versa. A smaller yet useful new feature in Redstone 4 is Nearby Share.

This allows you to share files between devices that are physically nearby, without going through the hassle of having to send it via an email or moving the files onto a USB drive for transfer. Nearby Share works with Bluetooth and picks up other devices that are nearby that it can share files with.

The other device receives a notification that a PC nearby is attempting to share something with it, and that PC can accept the file or decline it. Then, after just a few seconds depending on how large the file is, that file will appear on the recipients PC.

It’s super simple and intuitive, and it works just like you’d expect. As with every Windows 10 release, Microsoft has updated Edge with new features, changes, and improvements. Its design, as mentioned above, has been tweaked with new Reveal and Acrylic effects, its Hub area has been redesigned with a more clean and simple UI, EPUB support has been updated with a brand new reader, and a whole lot more.

PWAs are very important, and it’s great to see Microsoft adopting support for them in Edge. Edge has also been improved under the hood, so it should perform better in Redstone 4. That’s our list of the top five features and changes coming in the next Windows 10 release. What are you most looking forward to?

See all comments I sincerely hope for bareable touch keyboard for SP 4. I don’t even expect perfect or amazing, considering the state o in on FCU, just bareable will do It went from usable on RS2 to unusable in RS3. From what they said, it’s because they remade it from scratch in XAML. Hopefully it will be decent and fully usable in RS4, if not 5. They add spit screen keyboard in RS4. I want them to fix all the bloody bugsand omissions.

Instead they just introduce more. The current insider build is unusable, at least in tablet mode. You’re using an insider build and complaining about bugs? I get bugs from using other OSs too. Damn, the journey to find a bug free OS continues. Who would’ve thought? Same here. Not a single change I care about, and I’m sure it will bring with it a bunch of new bugs, some revived old bugs, and plenty of installation problems, I’d love to be able to pass on it.

Same here to be honest. Timeline needs an MS account to be used to it’s full and i do not have one of them, People I have no interest in what so ever, I have a phone to keep in contact with people.

Nearby share will not work with my copmputer as it does not have bluetooth, anyway I use an app on my phone that can send files via wi-fi to my computer, not that I have many files on my phone. So I think I will not bother with the update for a while, because I bet it will change my defaults and reenable cortana, just like the other major updates do,. Looking forward to Edge improvements. I’ve finally started using it as my default browser on one of my computers but there are still issues.

Hoping one day soon it will work as well as Chrome does. The biggest change I want is for Edge to stop leaving a persistient message on the bottom of the screen telling me that I’ve swtiched to full screen mode after I click on the full screen button.

What kind of assine message is that and why does it come up every time and persist until I close it for the millionith time. Windows 8 nagging all over again. I either turned off or don’t use those features. I find myself resorting most of the time to IE The latest updates seemed to have fixed all those problems for me. Are you doing regular updates? I would maybe give Edge another go, but some of the extesnions I use are not available and if they are they are awful anmd i only use four extensions on my browser, so how do people cope that uses a lot more?

It is, I guess. It is. Unigram had it for a brief while, as it was experimental — can’t quite remember if Fela brought it back in the stable version. Fluent design is a shame! They promised a lot, I liked the idea. It brings some great effects but in a very limited of elements. And the rest is still ugly, too contrasted: most elements are only black and white especially the background of the apps.

It hurts the eyes. Look at the Skype: in one hand you have a nice conversations list, and in the other hand you have the conversation in black and white or white and black depending on the theme. It looks like half baked. To make the comparison, Google’s Material Design was finalized before it was published, even if it has evolved since then, the first version was OK and it involved all the UI elements and not just the navigation panel.

If MS doesn’t move forward and finalize a complete version of the Fluent Design, the new uwp file explorer will be horribly catastrophic even if it’s functional. By the time they have finished Fluent Design, they will have decided on a different design language. Wave one is pretty much all in RS4. I couldn’t agree more with you, sephorostoj. That’s why I still believe they don’t have a proper, capable, overall UI design chief.

But each team of technicians is concerned to follow just some rules If only I could see how well this one’s doing in a handheld device.

This is Microsoft’s last hope for any type of mobile presence. I am able to send a webpage on edge on my Android device to my sp That’s what I want the most. Yawn, nope don’t need any of that. All good. I just wish they’d fix the damn audio bug in Edge. It’s my default browser now on all my PCs and my Pixel.

Get the audio fixed and I’ll be a much happier camper Nearby share is cool. Timeline looks amazing. Maybe and the idea is good, but a security problem and also will be limited as not all software will work with it, so while MS office will work with it, do not expect something like Libre office to, well not yet, it may ion the future.

All the froth and bubble can wait till the fundamentals work.
