Project to your PC screen
Windows 10 comes with yet another great feature. You can project another device to your PC screen. Though most devices are not designed to be projected to, it is possible. With this feature, instead of just projecting to your PC, you can also control the device from your PC. I find this best helpful when you would like to monitor someone else's PC, like a minor. Unlike Remote desktop, the device does not need to be connected to the same network as your PC. Such like devices include Smartphones through Miracast and other PCs through Miracast or intel WiDi. All you need to do on your PC is click on the start menu or search and type 'connect'. The app will appear and open it. Before connecting, windows will open the 'projecting to this PC' setting and confirm if your PC is compatible with Project. if it is compatible, change the settings to your liking. Once done, Open the connect app and on your other device, if a PC, click Windows key + P and select connect to a wireless display. On the connect tab, yo will see your PC's name. Select it and follow any instructions required, and enjoy your connection. you can also access the connect tab through the action center.

If you are WFH, what is your setup/tools used?
With the Covid-19 Pandemic outbreak, many of us are working from home this days. This new challenge made us do some changes to get the job done. If you are WFH, what is your setup/tools used? I'm using one laptop (Windows 10), one extra monitor, Microsoft Surface and Mobile Phone. Regarding software, Corporate VPN (Always use one...), Office 365 and specific bussiness applications. For mettings, Microsoft Teams and some times, Skype. Please share your thoughts and add some suggestions/ideas on how we can improve all this experience! Thanks!
What Do You Think About Skype?
Nowadays we are in situation where we should participate in social distancing and that's leads us to relay on Social Media ,Instance Messages and other means to do remote communication. Skype is great program to communicate remotely and if both parties have a device which Skype could be installed on it, they could have a Video and Voice call communication. Skype is also good if you just want to have quick chat with someone who doesn't have Skype and you could send invitation link and they could join the chat using browser without installing Skype. In worse case, when the other party doesn't have Smart Phone, Internet Connection or there is other issue, you could purchase Skype credit and call Skype to Landline or Cellphone which is available for most places around the world. I am Wondering, are you using Skype? Why? Why not? If you are using different technology, please name it and tell us why you are using it?
Inclusion for all disabilities 🤩💯✔
Many contributors on this platform recognise and applaud the 'Ease of Access' features on Windows 10. Microsoft teams are to be congratulated 👏 with a personal thank you for me. From my very latest experience helping another visually impaired User to use Word in particular the screen reader and Narrator, I have the impression (I could be wrong) that marketing/raising awareness to disabled users could and should be improved. By way of explanation, the other day, I was able to assist a colleague to create a simple Word document. Imagine please 😊 'Anne' sitting at her desktop with the landline telephone stuck to my ear and my colleague doing the same in her own home. Although it was a prolonged process, I was able to help her discover some of the basic features such 'read aloud' and Narrator. When I discussed this experience with a community group, some people that they were 'afraid of breaking their computers' and not being adventurous enough because they were unsure of what they were doing. Something about technophobia perhaps. I replied that they would have to hit their computers with a very heavy item to break them. I also mentioned that operating systems are usually reliable and have their internal routines to resolve faults/errors. One person said that computers are an enigma to him. I replied that it is an enigma to me at times 😊 🤣. But, there was a general sense from this conversation that computer technology was for the 'clever people' and those who had all their faculties. I disavowed that presumption with my colleagues/acquaintances. Quite strongly actually. But it has made me think about how we can change this 'perception'. So, I am challenging Microsoft (respectfully of course 🤩😊) to comprehensively engage with users who have disabilities ; raising their awareness of the opportunities that information technology affords. FAO Moderator - please do not hesitate to socialise this with MS colleagues. Many thanks all 🙏😊
What does being lockdown mean to me? Well, apart from the obvious of not being able to venture beyond the perimeter of my home, I find myself doing more of the following....... listening more, thinking more and hearing more; in particular the thinking bit. So here is my idea and it may come across as being 'nuts' 🤔🤯 When I power-up my computer every aspect of my personal operations of use should be coded into a simply use panel. Currently, when I log on my Internet access is automatic via my provider. However, if I wish to send an email I am faced with log-on panels etc. The usual website that I visit could be done via the Windows control panel. I am fortunate enough that my Internet usage is predictable and I very rarely surf out of the norms. Probably boring I know, but there it is. Thinking a little more about automated connectivity, there are masses of technologies that functions and self maintain themselves - some of them are extraterrestrials. I have to think that somewhere in a Microsoft development lab this 'intelligent' connectivity to our preferred websites is being developed, without using 'favourites'. The software needed would have to be intuitive (actually perhaps beyond intuitive). As I mentioned, the idea is a bit on the nutty side.
