What is your favorite kind of PC?
There are desktops, tablets, laptops, workstations, and more. Mine is a standard office workstation with a lot of installed RAM (16GB or more) because I tend to use 40 applications at a given time, most running in the background, with a large hard drive (1tb or more) to fit all my files and software on it. I also like tablets for when I need to go somewhere other than home and they can run flight simulator fine on them so its all I need for a few days. Laptops though. I do not like most as they tend to heat up no matter how good the cooling system and I have to actually keep internal and external fans running for a long time on the highest power setting to stop this. Desktops will always have better cooling.

Shutting down, restarting, or hibernating your PC
To shut down your PC: > Click Start, click the Power button, and then click Shut down. To restart your PC: > Click Start, click the Power button, and then click Restart. To put your PC to sleep: > Click Start, click the Power button, and then click Sleep. To hibernate your PC: > Click Start, click the Power button, and then click Hibernate. Notes and Tips: - If you enable Hybrid Sleep before putting your PC to sleep, it writes information to a disk, and then turns it off. If a power loss occurs, turning your PC back on will restore information that was written to a disk before it was put to sleep. - For fast start-up to work, your PC must have hibernation enabled. Check with Power Options in Control Panel. - You can also right-click Start and then point to Shut down or sign out. - You can use Power Options in Control Panel to configure your PC's power button or keyboard's sleep button to do other things like shutting down your PC or putting it to sleep. - If you have a laptop, it'll hibernate itself automatically after it's been to sleep for amount of time that you set in Power Options, found in Control Panel or Settings. - If your PC uses InstantGo (also known as Connected Standby), its screen will turn itself off if not used for a long time and continue performing background tasks like updating apps and syncing emails. There's no need to shut down your InstantGo-compatible PC, but if you wish to, hold the power button for four or five seconds, and then slide down from the top of the screen to shut down. - If any pending updates need to restart your PC, clicking Shut Down from the Power icon on the Start menu will configure updates in a first phase, restart your PC, configure updates again in a last phase, and then turn your PC off. - Some devices like keyboard and mouse may wake your PC up from sleep. To put a stop to this, go to Device Manager and check whatever device will wake your PC up from sleep.
change text colors of desktop apps shortcut, folders, icons
Wouldn't it be nice if users can change text colors of desktop apps, folders, icons~like the recycle bin, my PC, etc. to be able to match the background image? I would like to use a photo and set it as the background image but the text colors of desktop apps, folders, icons, etc. are not clear. I mean like if I have a white background color, then I will not be able to see text of the desktop apps shortcuts, folders, icons, etc., since they are white by default.
