Laptops with keyboard lighting
Hello Windows Community, What are your favorite choices of laptops with keyboards that have lighting?
Why were Cortana and Search separated into different icons?
Prior to the Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version 1903), there was one icon. It allowed me to search and access my Cortana interests. Now, there are two different icons. The Search icon allows me to search, and that's it. The Cortana icon allows me to see my interests from Cortana. My question is: Why do we now have separate icons?
The Narrator and I
The Windows 10 Narrator bot is such a valuable resource to me. In fact I would be unable to fulfill my professional and personal commitments without Narrator. So, I am sending this message to the Windows team that design systems which are based on inclusivity especially for those of us who have some form of disability. The 'Ease of Access' function is another aid that guides the users to adjust the system to their specific needs. I am in the throes of theoretically building a bot that is personalised to my needs. I have not even started coding - still masses of learning to do. My project is an exciting challenge for me and Narrator is my partner in this venture. The AI School Platform is fantastic. Thanks to the Microsoft teams for developing inclusivity aids - great work guys 🤩😍💜
Shoutout for Microsoft Teams 🤩
We are more than aware of the ongoing situations with CoVid19. ☹ Many people have been confined to their homes or, self isolating for their health protection. For those people who are confined (like a contributor to this platform) as an example, they are able to carry out their job responsibilities from home because many of us live in a connected world. This could not have been possible without the advancement of computer technologies to the level as they are today. Just imagine this kind of situation 20 years ago?! Having just been contacted by an individual who is working under these conditions, they expressed the opinion and I quote 'thank goodness I am able to do this'. My colleague is using Windows 10. So Microsoft please accept this person's thanks. Guys you are cosmic 😃 and so are the people using this platform, offering their help and advice to other contributors - co cool .
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.
Audio Muffled on HP Pavillion 15-cw1063wm after update
My audio has become muffled on my HP Pavillion 15-cw1063wm after the most recent windows update. Unless it's something else? Also, my B&O Audio Control is not connecting "Can not connect to RPC service".
Beta Version Cortana 👍
I was sceptical of Cortana prior to April 2020. 🙄 I found this feature not very helpful (for me). With Beta Cortana which is now on my device I am more positive. The tests that I ran this morning on the whole produced good outcomes. 😀 This Beta version still has some way to go before I could really make use of this feature. However on the positive side, Windows has made significant upgrades to this feature - way to go Windows Team. 😀 ✅ I will continue to beta test.

In Cyberpunk Photo Director
All the sudden in Cyberlink Photo Director when I click the Print icon it won't print, it will only say; save file. Even when it is saved to file you still cant print the picture. Nothing has been changed because you can't change Cyberlink Photo Director settings. I have gone to Cyberlink site and there isnt any info about this problem. Mine is version 5 and you cant even message a question because they want to know which version I have from there drop down box and version 5 isnt listed. I uninstalled then reinstalled it yet it is still the same and I use Windows 10 that was already installed. I contacted HP which is my brand and they said since it is a third party app. They cant fix it. Anyway I just wondered if anyone has had the same problem or knew a fix. Thanks, Sidnee
win10 ver 2004, folder options bug? (fixed)
(Edit, not bad, not even 30hrs from first update with the bug and another updates that fix it were available) build 2019.10.17.6232201; Control panel -> File Explorer Options-> tab 'View' or any file explorer window -> tab 'View' -> Options-> Change Folder and search options both open almost same settings, and the 'Advanced settings' apply in both cases to all folders; now when i select 'Show hidden files, folders, or drives' and unselect 'Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)' which asks for confirmation, then i click on 'Apply' and 'OK' nothing happens, i go back to File Explorer Options-> tab 'View' , and what i selected & unselected before has been undone, i repeat everything once more and now the hidden files appear and the advanced settings has been successfully altered, however if i want to hide all those files again, i need to repeat it twice in order for it to work; can anyone confirm if it happens on his/her PC as well?
