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.

Windows 10 - create a desktop icon? Help please 😀
When I used Windows 7 I could easily create an icon for my desktop. I do not seem to be able to do that now. Desktop icons are very helpful and speed up the connect process. My bot (computer) is an HP Combi and is currently operating in tablet mode. I have tried the process of using themes but was not successful. Any suggestions? Many thanks PS - I understand that Microsoft Edge doesn't allow desk-top shortcuts to be created. Have to revert several clicks to get to a website 🤔

Microsoft - bouquet of thanks
This is just a flying visit this morning 😃. May I ask the Moderator to send my thanks to the team that sent me the email concerning my suggestion of sound clips for notifications. The team responded by providing really good information and I will try out some time today. If successful, I will let my colleagues, friends et al know that this function is available. 🤩 So, my experience on this platform is - if you have an idea/suggestion/comment (respectful ones), Microsoft listens and helps - really whizzo of the team 🤩😎💜

Windows 10 S May 2019 Update?
So I have had some security issues recently. I bought a new laptop PC specifically with windows 10 S. I see a lot of threads downplaying it’s functionality/usefulness - but for me, in this moment, the more secure the better. When I went to update my new laptop, it stopped updating at the 1809 windows update. Is there a 1903 windows update coming for S or is that only if I convert to windows 10 Home? I’d like to avoid conversion until/if I feel it truly necessary .. but would also like the latest windows features and updates. Any news/info? Thanks for any reply!
