Safely Remove USB Hard Drive
Hi, Some times I get this message when I try to eject my hard drive. "This device is currently in use. Close any programs or windows that might be using the device, and then try again." I have tried many suggested methods that I found on google search. None of them worked. Is it safe to just pull it out as suggested on this article (please see below) Thanks Thiru -- hide signature -- Microsoft Ditches ‘Safely Remove USB’ Requirement — Just Pull It Out 8 April 2019, 7:31 am EDT By Carl Velasco Tech Times It's common practice to hit "Safely Remove USB" before pulling out a flash drive from Windows devices, but Microsoft has officially called it quits on that requirements. As part of a new update, the Redmond company has modified the way Windows 10 handles disconnecting USBs or Thunderbolt storage devices. The change applies to USB thumb drives, external hard drives, flash drives, and even data transfer connections between PCs and smartphones. It took effect with the wide deployment of Windows 10 version 1809, which is the October 2018 update. https://www.techtimes.com/articles/241057/20190408/microsoft-ditches-safely-remove-usb-requirement-—-just-pull-it-out.htm ---------------

Why I can't find Windows as comfortable to use as Linux
I use Windows only for some games, and if Windows 10 had more features, I could use it on daily basis, but at the moment it is missing a few very important features. First problem is filesystem support. Windows 10 supports only very few different filesystems, which means I can't access devices like my Raspberry Pi's SD card, and also NTFS isn't actually very good filesystem. Second thing is, I can't customize Windows 10 enough. (PLEASE tell me if any of following features exist, I would love to use them!) I would like to set custom shortcuts for moving/managing windows, and I would love to have at least partly similar behavior as tiling window managers on Linux have, by which I mean that by default, program would open full-sized (not fullscreen though), but if I open another program, it would automatically split the windows. Also, I find it actually harder to search programs from internet, and then download an installer, then run it to get the program installed, and then being able to use it. On Linux (I use Arch Linux btw.) there is a thing called package management, so with package manger I can search for programs and install them straight away, and then instantly being able to use them. Also through package manager I can update all my packages = whole operating system and all programs (which are installed via package management). Also I can't do as much stuff on Windows CMD or powershell as I can in Linux terminal, and especially on Arch I like that I've hand-picked each part of system, so I know what it can do, and what it contains. And in Linux terminal, with sudo (or root user) I have the rights over all the operating system. I understand that some of these will never be accomplished in Windows, but I hope that at least some of these will be picked up as an actual suggestions. If I had to select three things to include from these, they would be package management, filesystem support and waaayy more customization options.
Assigning Channels for Bluetooth Speakers on Windows 10?
Hi, all! New to here. There's a problem I failed to settle from the Internet, thus gonna ask here. It's about output my Windows 10 Home audio to multiple Bluetooth speakers WITH stereo effects. The speakers are Bose SoundLink Minis, which are stereo themselves. What I wanna achieve is assigning each speaker for a particular channel (say, Speaker A for Right Channel & Speaker B for the left one). macOS is pretty easy for this with MIDI setup which allows users to mute either channels of each speaker. I cannot do this on Windows 10, even after installing third-party apps like Voicemeeter, which is a very professional yet complicated virtual mixer, let alone the native Stereo Mix app on Windows. The problem is they only duplicate exactly what is to be sent to Speaker A to Speaker B. Can anyone help? Thank you a lot if this issue can be addressed!
