Accessibility option for people with low vision
I was looking in to the different accessibility options that windows has to offer, and I found this cool article https://community.windows.com/en-us/stories/windows-narrator where it explains how to set-up and use Windows Narrator in your computer. ❤ the Microsoft approach on accessibility. What is your favorite accessibility future or what accessibility future you would like to see in Windows?

Conversation Guidelines - Windows Community
Windows Community - Conversation Guidelines: I was looking through the site for the Windows Community guidelines. Perhaps I missed it, but I couldn’t find a compiled set of rules and guidelines to read and reference. A guidelines document should help the community prosper and communicate effectively. It should represent the community goals and facilitate information sharing, creative brainstorming, idea generation, and a positive encouraging environment. For the Community! > Here is an opportunity to help grow the community and encourage open, positive, fresh ideas and communication. What are your questions and concerns? Ideas? > >

Windows Update giving error 0x80070002 before downloading
I have that issue that I was unable to download last three OS builds. I thought the only solution is downloading the OS and by pass the Window Update. Windows update repair tool did not find any problem. I was able to locate a way to download the last OS Build. Somebody with same error 0x80070002 but it was able to download the last Build up to 7%. My issue was worse. After downloading and installation of the last Build, I was able thanks to God, to fix the issue with Windows update. I checked updates and no more errors. I did CHKDSK and disk errors found. I fixed it and all was ok. I had another issue with stand by and hibernation in which the PC froze after I tried to awake up. After all done, I was able to fix that too. I write this to share my solution with other people with the same issue so they can resolve their issue too..

Nearby sharing in Windows 10 lets you share documents, photos, links to websites, and more with nearby devices by using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. To use Nearby sharing, both PCs—the one you’re sharing from and the one your sharing to—must have Bluetooth and must be running Windows 10 (version 1803 or later).

Update-- nearby sharing does not work on my old computers that have been running Windows 10 fine and been updated to 1803. It does not even have the option to select it in Notifications and Alerts. However, normal file sharing works ok now.

Hello, Does anyone know a method of disabling nearby sharing by an automated method? I can't find reference to this service in the downloadable Group Policy Settings spreadsheet. I know it can be individually toggled by an end user in the settings, but I need a way to disable this feature ... · Hello, AFAIK, there is no GPO setting available till date ...

Hi. I have windows surface pro 4 and a laptop both running windows 10 1803 but cannot connect via Bluetooth therefore nearby sharing does not work.
