Disappointed in Surface Laptop 3
Have a Surface Laptop 3 (1+ year old) which has the same problems especially Windows Edge browser frequently becoming dormant with a message " Edge is not responding". In addition system seems to degrade over time: sound, light takes longer to take effect, and MSN.com window gives me the same message and have to reboot to use. Can't really tell if it is Edge or the Computer. Called support multiple times. They run the fixit tool, reset the Windows Edge browser and I'm good for a while and the process begins again. I use to take it to the store but now that's gone. Support has gone from US to foreign country and frankly is getting less than satisfactory. I find this new support crew very unsure. They often have to check with someone else before they do anything. My impression is that Microsoft is degrading also, since the stores are gone. Hate to see that happening. Will not purchase a MS computer next time.

Microsoft Windows 10 UI Design Is Still Inconsistent
In January2020, we here that Microsoft is discontinue the legendary Windows 7 OS after almost 12 years support. The windows 7 users should not be get any feature update expect the Security Patch update. Well frankly say it's really a tough decision for Microsoft, Because over 200M+devices are still running on windows 7 in 2020, Microsoft continuously try to push it's user to the latest Windows 10. It's fine and i am not complaining about this. But the real problem comes in terms of Windows 10's UI element design and user experience..... In Windows 10 Microsoft was introduced Fluent Design System, and that is the new user interface by Microsoft in Windows 10, Microsoft really work on it and continuously try to improve it. But the problem is The new Fluent Design of Windows 10 is very unstable and it is only support just few apps and System. The Core User Interface of Windows 10 is still look like 2009's Windows 7 in 2020. Here is the few Point that you should be noticed it: 1.The Windows 10 Setting Application has a new good look, but you can also find the old Windows 7 style in Control Panel in Windows 10. 2.The File Explorer of Windows 10 is Still look like 2009's Windows 7. 3.Most of the old core applications of Windows 7 is also present in Windows 10, Like Paint, The worse Internet Explorer, Windows old Media Player etc., you can find it on Windows Accessories folder in start menu. I know many users are still love to use those but is those app really need? think rationally.... 4.The most of the Internal Core application and program still look like windows 7 in 2020, they need a big revamp of windows new fluent design. It's complicated the system and make things more harder. My Suggestion is that, Please Windows 10 Developers Short out this Issues and Solve the Problem in next Windows 10 feature Updates. If you are agree with me, please Comment.. For more details please watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hn5QjtpjW_U
Windows 10 Update fails entire OS Win10, 2020 Update failur
I had an Old PC with Windows 8.1 pro, which 4-5 yrs ego updated to Windows 10 Pro by Microsoft. Yesterday I got ultimate 2020 update offer from Microsoft site and after hours of download and installation, my PC had every kind of problem, and now it does not even boot to OS. Searching on Internet, I found I'm not alone, and millions of peoples having the same problem. First I think it was very stupid for Microsoft to put this update out there, and making people to somehow go for buying a new version of Windows 10 (base on its 7-8 yrs cycle of new OS release). It could done this honestly by releasing a new Windows for sale, and I would not lost tons of file and $100s worth of installed Software on my PC. Now there is not even a USB tool or USB Trouble shooting neither any clue, where the problem is. My system on my most used PC I had is blocked, and no any reference on Microsoft attack the problem the way to solve, but leading to get a New Window OS, use installation USB, and here you go Now you have a new Windows 10 sold. Seems like Lebanese Gang working with Indo-Bangeladeshi Programmers to run Microsoft 2020 !
What is Productivity?
I'm often baffled by the way people use the word "productivity". It would seem I may have the wrong idea of the definition of productivity. In my view, productivity describes the most direct way to achieve a desired result. It means, responding to a request with a direct action towards producing the desired result : eg: "open the window", should cause someone to open the window. Conversely, when I ask Microsoft to do something , I usually get a response in the form of a question. " Are you sure that's what you want me to do?" or perhaps, " Do you have the authority to request that ?" Very often, on the internet, I get an even more non-productive response. " Sorry, we cannot find that site" or another inane response is , " We notice you are using an ad blocker. We'd like to give you the opportunity to remove it or disable it so we can feed you the kind of crap you put the ad blocker in place to prevent ." Am I wrong in assuming that Microsoft is asking me to remove my,"productivity" measures so they can waste more of my time with unsolicited sales pitches instead of doing what I asked them to do?

I had a work PC configured, then Microsoft forced an update
Hi, I would like to ask a Microsoft Manager, (any department will do), how would you feel after you find that your working PC is not working anymore, while you have a customer in front of you waiting to start a recording session he paid for. I have a DAW, configured with 3 monitor and one professional Dante audio interface. I run a recording studio. My work is to record musician sessions in a dynamic way, following and inspiring artists to focus on creativity and music, not on technology. Today I had to cancel the session, a band that arrived from abroad, because the last Windows update left my system in a non operative status. I am working hard to recover the technical situation, but I think I have lost a customer. They asked me: why you do not use MAC? I decided to use Windows because I was curious to see if the belief that Mac OS is better for professional recording studio was correct. I gave Microsoft credit. But, this is the third time I have this problem. It is not acceptable. I will update (should I say upgrade) the systems to Mac, but as a short term solution I have to reconfigure the DAW. Do you know what I have to do to reconfigure my system and how long it will take me? I will tell you. Read the following log. 1. AMD Radeon HD 7770 Ghz Edition - driver gone - I had to reinstall - 40 minutes 2. wrong resolution on display n.2 (LG ultrawide HDMI) - 10 min. 3. three desktop - on the display n. 1 I have icons of the previous n. 2 / on display 2 there is nothing / on disp. 3 a mess - 20 min. 4. The color management is gone! I had to run Spider5Express on 3 monitors to recalibrate the colour - 1 hour and 30 minutes 5. Audio: reconfiguration I will continue later... but... Gentleman, my feeling now is that my DAW is not really mine! Microsoft have the control on my belonging. I pay for something that I have to disconnect physically from Internet otherwise I can not avoid updates? This is unacceptable and ridiculous.
