Does the "Search" Tool Make Navigating Your Computer Easier?
I use the "Search" feature frequently, I'm a big fan. For years I've wanted a simple search bar on my computer that could find mostly anything I'm looking for. That little magnifying glass in the bottom left side of the task bar can locate the files, programs, settings, even websites that best match my search. I work at MSFT and I'm curious about your thoughts & feedback. Thank you in advance!
Oh no a keyboard oopsie 😮🤔
I preface this posting by indicating that I reported this oopsie to the 'Hub' yesterday evening. 😊✔ At 19:40 UK local time, I attempted to use my computer. However, I found that my Bluetooth keyboard was unresponsive to my 'tapping'. I had several attempts to remedy the problem; the keyboard remained unresponsive. I had to ask a family member if there was anything happening on the screen 🤔 - there was not. I decided to do re-start - the keyboard remained unresponsive. I then powered down the device, unplugged all device and peripherals and plugged back in and powered up. I was able to check settings using my mouse pointer and I located a system message that read my email provider settings were out-of-date, My email settings have never been out of date. I concluded that Windows had been checking my system. No problems with that. 🤩 I clicked on the MS account panel and proceeded to go through the checking process. The Bluetooth keyboard was re-initiated. 🙏👏 #JustSharing 😊 Keep well all.

Do You Remember the old Shutdown?
Long Long time ago, I guess it was Windows 95 or Windows 98, I remember when we click to shutdown the PC, it will show message like your PC is shutdown please turn off the power button. Anyone remember this? Those days, there wasn't ability to automatically turn off power button and you have to manually press it to turn it on or off. Later on new power button come around and when you shutdown your PC , it will automatically turn off power button too like what we have nowadays.

Disappearing weather widget
Hi, had the quality update that gave me the weather widget on my taskbar and which I liked as I've missed my weather widget from Windows 7. I had to reset my PC, and now I can't get it back. I've updated and all the build numbers match with my other PC which does have it and the feature experience pack, just no weather widget. Any ideas?
Volume slider on Action Center
It would be very usefull to have a volume slider below / above the brightness slider on the Action Center, let me explain : My main laptop is a 2in1 and when i'm in tablet mode and full screen, if i have to change the volume i have to exit the fullscreen app, look in the taskbar for the volume icon, click it and then adjusting the slider which is in my opinion extremly annoying since i don't have dedicated volume buttons on the side of the laptop. So instead i would love to see a volume slider accessible just a left swipe away, i tried looking for advanced solutions like 3rd party apps, widgets and i even tried to code a widget myself that does something similar, but a native feature would be best.
