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.
I do not have enough space for windows to update on my PC
I now have 3 external Seagate hard drives that are 6tb each the last two drives filled up in 3 days. Because of file history. the last drive I attached was just so I can use it to store my pics, vids and docs. It seems to have taken it upon itself to assume the responsibility of file History. Can I format the 1st or 2nd hard drive since the 3rd one now is full. Does this mean everything on the first two hard drives is now on the 3rd. Also, why is my C drive full and telling me I can free up 760 GB on my C drive from other people and local accounts. I am the only one who lives here and use a Microsoft account not local one The only settings on file history are daily and by the hour. My C drive is at capacity and anything I plug in go straight to max capacity. Anyone else have a problem with this and have a suggestion I would sure appreciate it! A. Stain

Is there a way to wait to install an update
I have tried to turn off windows updates but even when I go in and disable them, they still manage to turn themselves off. I only find out when I got to turn off my laptop and my options are update and restart or update and shut down. I like to be there when it's updating and sometimes I want to go to bed. So what are my options ....I have to sit there and wait for it to update. Why can't they give me an option to ignore update for now and shut down normally. I feel like I have no control over my computer updating. On my apple devices it tells me when there is an update available and I can decide when it's a good time for me to update. Is there some way around this? I'm in the market for a new laptop and I am seriously wondering if I really want to get another windows laptop because of the lack of control over the updates.
The Continuing Hardware Mystery
Perhaps there is a sleuth within our community who can shed a light on a vey peculiar issue. Background:-I have a HP Touchsmart 300 (All-In-One} bought in 2009 - operating system Windows 7 Home Premium. Naturally I jumped at the opportunity to upgrade to the new Windows 10 in 2015. Yes I am aware that my HP 300 is 10 years old and that some of the issues may be put down to age, however It has been well maintained and is still in perfect physical condition so I am hesitant to say age has caused certain devices/hardware to stop functioning. In a nutshell after an Insider Preview update a device/hardware suddenly no longer works. The first to go was the microphone array and to date this no longer works and I had to install a external device. Other devices/hardware that suddenly stopped working which I thought was linked to the sound problem although the sound problem is now resolve. Sound issue resolved after further insider updates. At the moment I have to continually change the display drivers after each Insider update back to the original agreed Microsoft/AMD 2015 drivers which work perfectly with my display hardware. The new drivers they install each time they update OS results in a display out of focus, stretched and overall it looks very dull and wrong. The resolution is far lower than the capabilities of the display. Has anyone else encountered the above issues or perhaps have an explanation?

When is the Inbuilt Support to Mirror iPhone to PC arriving?
Does anyone know if Microsoft has any plans to manage smartphones (iPhone, Android devices specifically) from PC ? I am talking about features like Mirroring your phone notifications to PC (Call, Text notifications etc.), Mirroring screen to PC etc. Currently, there are only third party apps that enable users to do that. But that comes at a cost.

Will Microsoft ever re-launch Windows based phone(s)?
I for one,and with great certainty, am unhappy with the Google/Android cabal. I currently own and use an Android based phone, because I don't like the costs and controls inherent to the Apple World. The Chrome "Operating System" and Google browser are tools for the data mining hordes that are Alphabet/Google/Chrome/Android. I make every attempt to shut-off, delete, and never use Google based products; still they track my location(s), and attempt to force recommendations to my phone. I turn-off all location and data sharing options daily. Every time I charge my phone Android resets my defaults. I use Microsoft Launcher, Edge, Bing et al; because I choose to limit access (whenever I am able) and believe that the Microsoft people are slightly more trustworthy, and have treated better since the 1970's. When attempting to use Bing Maps, via Android phone, I am often blocked or switched/defaulted to Google Maps, and all Android location services are switched-on. I daily get Google/Android push notices telling to adopt the Android way of life. When first introduced, I saw little green Android droid as a cute logo. I now believe that it a symbol of semi-conscious forced assimilation. Whatever happened to the "Don't Be Evil" header? Have they collectively choked on the Irony of the very Idea? Mister Gates and Microsoft have accepted Android as the "Winner", in regards a mobile platform. I am using Android "only " because there appears NO viable option(s). I currently see Huawei and Alphabet/Google/Android as being equally "Trustworthy", and only marginally different in motivation for controls.
Setting default action when connecting a USB drive
In my Windows 10 (latest update of Pro at home office), I am prompted each time I insert a USB flash memory drive about what to do. In the past, the selection dialog included a check box to set the selected action as default. There is none shown now. I can't find a way to set such an option.
