Trying to find a suitable App for video editing
Hello, I am interested in creating film reviews to upload to youtube. I am considering using Adobe apps such as Adobe Premiere or Premiere Rush. However, I am advised to download from the Microsoft store only to ensure the smooth and efficient running of my PC. I can't seem to find apps there that would be as suitable or useful for my purposes. A Microsoft or Google Play version of the Adobe products does not seem to be available, but there are plenty of tutorials and courses for Adobe products. This seems strange. Wondering could anyone help me with this issue. Perhaps there is a suitable app on the Microsoft store I am unaware of. I want to upload film clips with recordings of my own voice reviewing the films.

What do you think of Microsoft's UI Design?
Since Windows 8, Microsoft's taken the lead in pioneering modern UI design standards. The goal seems to be to make a cohesive touch-friendly UI across Windows, with an emphasis on flat, sharp elements and icons as well as tiles that have defined a lot of Microsoft's design language. With the inclusion of fluent design, subtle references to skeuomorphism, like lighting, highlights, and texture have been added back to Windows, without compromising any other modern design guidelines. These efforts are commendable, and demonstrates Microsoft's progressive design standards. However, the focus on mobile-friendly and touch-friendly interfaces has become concerning, especially since new designs have changed from a mobile-first to a mobile-only style. Large fonts and buttons, excessive padding, and limited customizability might be fine on mobile apps because mobile devices are limited, and more difficult to work with, but these same design elements are hostile and inefficient to mouse-and-keyboard users. If you compare Windows 10 apps to their Windows 7 counterparts, you can see that the newer apps take up more screen space while doing more or less the same function. This is a problem. A focus on Mobile-friendly design should not ever mean mouse-and-keyboard unfriendly, especially since this is the primary method of input on desktop computers. I was once especially fond of the Microsoft Office interface as an example of crisp, modern design that does not compromise mouse and keyboard usability. Most importantly, Office came with a "touch mode" and "mouse mode" option, creating the most optimal interface for each input method. However, the latest redesign of the Office ribbon seems to move further and further from these sensible design guidelines. The new simplified ribbon has no changes for mouse and touch mode, along with a host of other issues. I'm concerned over the direction of Microsoft's UI design, and I'd like to bring up these issues for consideration.

How are you using Windows to increase your productivity ?
My personal favorite Windows 10 feature is Snap. Snapping in Windows 10 a great way to use your screen real estate more efficiently if you have several pages or applications open. To snap a window, all you need to do is drag the top of an app window to the side. Then snap assists brings up other pages that are open, you choose your preferred one, and then pages/apps are placed side by side. This is extremely helpful for all the avid multitaskers!
