OneDrive and Photos What!
After I reinstalled Windows 10, I opened OneDrive and started getting things back in order. I noticed several images were gone, but it was time to replace them anyway. Naturally I opened up File Explorer, and that is when panic set in. What I noticed was that the folder known in OneDrive, called SkyDrive Camera Roll, was no longer there. Panic started to set in, but luckily I have every thing backed up on an external hard drive so we didn't have to get out the portable defibrillator, just yet. I started back into OneDrive in both accounts, as they are linked together, as well as File Explorer and noticed that there was now a folder call simply named Camera Roll. Ok, now that I know, I can live with that, but what puzzles me now is that on my Android phone and Fire tablet OneDrive still shows SkyDrive Camera Roll. Do I dare uninstall on those devices and reinstall, or let alone?
What's the future of Win32 and UWP?
For those who aren't familiar, Win32 applications are your traditional desktop programs. They are typically installed via a downloaded installer, can be run directly from their exe files and are located in the Program Files folder of every Windows computer. UWPs, on the other hand, are essentially glorified mobile apps as part of Microsoft's last-ditch effort to gain developer support for Windows Phone. They can only be distributed via the Windows Store, designed from the ground up to be mouse-unfriendly, and use a completely different application architecture than traditional programs. UWPs cannot be launched directly from their exe files; their program files are hidden away in special directories that regular users are not allowed to access. The idea behind UWP was to create an application that could be programmed once and run on all Windows devices, both phone and desktop. This way, it would be easier to create software for Windows Phone, thus incentivizing developers to write more mobile apps. However, with the demise of Windows Phone and the failure of Windows 8, it doesn't seem that UWPs need to exist anymore. Yet, despite this, Microsoft is throwing more and more resources into UWP. They've converted all of their first party-software to the UWP platform, made it the only kind of software that can run on Windows VR/AR/MR headsets, and stopped adding new features to Win32 entirely. Where is Microsoft going with this? Does Microsoft plan to eventually deprecate Win32? Microsoft hasn't made their goals or intentions very clear, and it's causing no small amount of concern in the developer community. The fact that they have no public plans to deprecate Win32 at the moment is little comfort- everything Microsoft has done so far has indicated otherwise.
Regarding Conversation Categories: Accessibility
Accessibility is, where? .. When creating a conversation, the community member is asked to select a category for the conversation. Specifically: "Choose a category below *Entertainment- Use Windows for fun activities and playing games on your devices *Productivity- Learn how to use Windows to be more productive *Creativity- Explore creative tools and applications *Security & Privacy- Get tips for keeping data safe and private on your device *Windows Updates- Discover what's changing and why *Behind the Scenes- Meet Windows creators and see the stories behind the features *Other" .. Accessibility is the critical issue for all different persons with disabilities and challenges. Some questions and issues may be directly related to a single Entertainment product or particular to an aspect of Productivity with Windows. However, there are broader aspects of Accessibility that are important and critical to those impacted. And somehow, "Other", just doesn't seem to belay a recognition of import. .. Recommend making a category of "Accessibility"; to recognize the importance of having the conversation, and the broader overarching impact to those in the community with differences and disabilities. .. What say the rest of the community?
looking for the hardware troubleshooter in Win. 10?
hi all: Some people have wondered as to where the hardware troubleshooter is in Windows 10. Microsoft took it out starting from 1809, because it has the lowest usage. One website I found stated that it is not gone, but rather, it is hidden. To use it, please type msdt.exe -id DeviceDiagnostic via cmd (administer privilege). The hardware troubleshooter will appear. Hope this help.
