Hello 👋!! I am Yash and I am from India and I really like Microsoft. Did you notice that Windows icons and Microsoft Edge icons are changing? They are more circular? I think that is linked to the major UI update code named Sun Valley. I think that Windows is changing from the square-ish icons to circular icons. These circular icons are more modern and these circular icons as well as most of the updates in Sun Valley are linked to the new Windows operating system, Windows X. Everything is the same except some changes such as: Windows X does not support legacy apps, these are apps which can be downloaded from the web. Windows X are for those people who like to work with ChromeBooks. People are hoping that more apps and games come available to the Microsoft Store with the new Sun Valley update. The update is expected to appear in the early year of 2022. But some new features and updates will roll out on the Windows Insider by October. Thats it for me today! I will keep you updated. Thanks!😀🙂👋
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 to make the print "darker". As a Senior, I find Windows 10 hard to read as the print is much lighter than Windows 7. Windows 7 allowed us to pick out the script that was the best for us..Windows 10 does not offer this option. Any suggestions? Thank you
Differentiating Simultaneous File Explorer Sessions
I frequently need to open multiple instances of File Explorer to facilitate file management among different clients or projects. It requires high concentration and effort to ensure placing the correct items in the appropriate folders. Is there a way to customize each simultaneous Explorer window to differentiate them, such as by changing the Folder/ File name text or font, or Explorer Page Header or Page Color? This would also be useful for other apps such as Word and Excel.

Office 365 Tips and Tricks How we Learn
Office 365 Tips and Tricks. Do you have a tip or trick you would like to share with the class? My trick is in Excel, and uses the Format Cell feature. When people look into formatting a cell, they rarely look beyond font, color, time, and currency, They rarely look into the Custom part of the Numbers format section, and that is where I'm going to take you. In Excel when you type something like 25#, or 25lb., there are several ways to get the adjacent cell to either x, /, -, +, that cell. Or for example you have a list where every name is the same, only the quantity changes. So why, type that name in each and every time, and why enter some outed formula to take advantage of the number only. So here's a way of doing both. When you choose to format a cell or row or column of cells, highlight Number, then scroll down to custom, Under the word Type, where it says General type in "mmHG", then hit press enter. Now when you enter your number in that column of cells, the letters mmHG will also appear. Next for the numbers. Under the word Type, where it says General you can type is something like this 0.0 "lbs." Notice that there is a space between the last 0 and the first quote mark. That is optional, but after you hit enter go a cell in that column and enter a number and let your eye make your decision. When you enter a number in the cell now, it will appear as 25#, but it will be able to be X, /, *, -, +, as if the # wasn't even there. As for both scenarios, what I've shown you in between the quote marks can be anything you want. Have fun! What are some of your tips or tricks?

Locate custom fonts on the Web . In addition to acquiring and using fonts installed with other applications, you can download fonts from the Internet. Some fonts on the Internet are sold commercially, some are distributed as shareware, and some are free.
Always create new fonts based on proportional-sized variations of the system font. Given the system font metrics, you can create bold, italic, larger, and smaller variations. A simple way to ensure that your program respects users' settings is to test using a different font size and a high contrast color scheme.
The display fonts, used at larger sizes, while clearly related to the text fonts, have a more dramatic impact. Paul : I find a typeface begins as either a mental picture that takes a visual form or an abstract idea that is given life by constantly assessing its forms against the abstract idea.
