So hard to use the search function in File Explorer of 1909
Hi, I am a so old Windows user since Windows 3.2. I found it so hard to use the updated search function in File Explorer of 1909. 1. In 1903 and earlier, I click the search box, the search ribbon tool appear immediatelly, and I can modify the search options, like search by time/size and/or other properties. In 1909, the search ribbon tool does not come out immediatelly, I have to type something before the tools appear, and delete what I have typed to search all the files with just the modified option. It is not satisfied. 2. When I click the search box, the history list does not jump out smoothly. Sometimes it has no response, no input icon, I have to close the file explorer window, which is quite annoying. 3. The appear of address and search box are changed, they look taller than before, I perferde the slim design.
how can i make the bottom right corner of my taskbar compact.?
Differentiating Simultaneous File Explorer Sessions
I frequently need to open multiple instances of File Explorer to facilitate file management among different clients or projects. It requires high concentration and effort to ensure placing the correct items in the appropriate folders. Is there a way to customize each simultaneous Explorer window to differentiate them, such as by changing the Folder/ File name text or font, or Explorer Page Header or Page Color? This would also be useful for other apps such as Word and Excel.
Hello Windows Community, Does anyone use Teams? My office uses it working remotely and it is such a useful tool for communication and workflow.
How about creating audio instruction books/guidelines?
I am using the new build of Windows 10 with really good assistive technologies. I wonder whether it would be possible to provide audio instruction leaflets for those users who have visual impairments. The new Narrator is great; surely we can improve on this by offering an audio clip. Perhaps something to consider for future builds. Many thanks.
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.

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 ---------------
