Why ? Have not anyone come up with a solution...?
Hello...Greeting smile!! Yes, that is a question, Why not ? Just think of the powerful impact this would have... 1. To be able to use headset/mic in a gaming world,working with the "CC" that is short for "Close Captions", as you see on most T.V. platforms for the Deaf and Hard-Of-Hearing world. But, does it end there, NO it does not... 2. While yet it is a small spectrum of people who rely on having to read lips or a simple text messages on their phones/T.V. It does not stop there, for example...one could be of a different nationality ,not knowing the language/s of whom they are trying to listen to and how to gain a understanding of... could simply put on the headset with a mic, and presto the language/s can be understood by both parties, because of the languages barrier/s is now understood as a 'minor obsequy"....Now no longer is there a barrier to not understand a unknown language/s. 3. Or simply wanting to have no sound, but just a text messages ,and a piece of mind knowingly that you will have a record of the conversation/s with... *the market is open to something new and bold. Why not give this a starter in an known format as in CC. Thank you for reading this, And please help those who have great ideas...to better the world now and tomorrow.
Support options for individual Special Needs users?
OTHER THAN high level large enterprise support contracts - And other than paying some high hourly fee, or a high per call fee, regardless of problem resolution > What Microsoft support options are available for . . . 1> . . . the work needs of any single small business and/or professional user? 2> . . . the special and unique personal and work related needs of the single business and/or professional user? For the purpose of this discussion . . . 1> "SUPPORT" requires an assigned personal contact (a human). All other support tools (internet resources, documents, AI chat, forums, etc) are part of a comprehensive package, and improve service while limiting total personal cost. However, a human element is required for consistency and trust worthiness of the support. 2> The special and unique needs involve Cognitive disabilities of the otherwise functional professional worker. The challenge of cognitive disability in this context requires attention (beyond product capabilities) to product usability, learnability, special training, product structure, and adaptability to the unique special needs of the individual. Cognitive and learning disabilities most often involve overlapping issues with adult Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD,ADD-inattentive type), Depression, Trust issues, OCD, Anxiety disorder, Bipolar and/or Manic episodes. Additionally, normal difficulties that accompany age, exacerbate prior difficulties, such as prior lifelong Adult ADD and depression. 3> It is expected that a combination of tools and enforced (yet customized) structure can assist the challenged functional professional; improving quality of work and life, work / personal life balance, health (reduction of stress, reduction of anxiety and coincident issues worsened by work stress). This allows the aging challenged individual to remain productive, successful, and confident of contributions, empowering the individual to continue work successfully and staving off self-imposed "forced" retirement.
Value of Microsoft Games and Tools
On a scale of O-150 for Alzheimer's I am 120 and my Doctors are amazed at how well I am doing. I tell them it is because I spend 3 plus hours a day on my computer doing challenging puzzles, games and word games. I read a legal and medical article ( I was a crime victim advocate for 20 plus years and retired from a surgeons office. The products I have found through Microsoft are invaluable for me. I just wish I could track my progress. Is that possible in the future? And the variety of games for us "older" challenged helps! Thank you

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 🤩😎💜
