Results for: computer screen
Hello everybody, I recent misplaced my laptop which probably found it's new owner by now. In a classic case of idiotism, I have not turned on the Find my device feature, so I have basically said goodbye to it. I would like to ask for some advice though. Is there anything I can do remotely about my data protection? I have performed the basic stuff like changing passwords to everything I could think off, logging out remotely from gmail and facebook. But how about the data on the laptop itself? Regards Jan
Pick and Choose Update Packages
Please, it would be a life saver for many if users could pick and choose update packages. I had a big headache today uninstalling an update that led my Lenovo desktop to blue screening right at sign in and when I want to restart, it crashes immediately. Worse, I couldn't enter safe mode with my USB recovery drive because the PC didn't detect it. Fortunately, after trying each single USB ports I could boot into my USB drive and uninstall the update. Oh, there should be an easier way to access safe mode too. I remember with Windows 7 there was such a thing like boot menu. Yep, that one less second at boot costs me hours of productivity. Simply genius...

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.
