Explaining 21H1 AND 21H2
1. 21H1 is as follows & the operative word is MINOR: Windows 10, version 21H1 will have a scoped set of features improving security, remote access and quality. The features we are releasing in this update are focused on the core experiences that customers have told us they’re relying on most right now. So, we optimized this release to support our customers’ most pressing needs. New features include multicamera support for Windows Hello and security related performance improvements. Windows Hello multicamera support to set the default as the external camera when both external and internal Windows Hello cameras are present. Windows Defender Application Guard performance improvements including optimizing document opening scenario times. Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) Group Policy Service (GPSVC) updating performance improvement to support remote work scenarios. 2. 21H2 is MAJOR: 21H2 in the Fall of 2021 is a massive overhaul, for the 1st time in 6 years since its birth, to the Windows 10 GUI. The project devoted to this work is called Sun Valley and it is based on Fluent Design. Fluent Design is responsible for the new icons coming to Win10. 21H2, internally code-named 'Cobalt', is a huge re-imaged, mdernised, re-design of the Win10 UI that affects Start, Taskbar, Action Centre, File Explorer, Animations, Dark and much more. 21H2 will be very cool, very exciting. It is fluid, 'alive', colourful, artistic and dynamic. You are going to REALLY like 21H2❗👍👍
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 🙏😊
New MSN News Pages Layout In MS Edge
Hello Windows Community Members And Staff, I Just noticed the other day the New Article Page Layout when using my MS Edge Browser and reading the MSN Articles. I truly Enjoy this clean new look and feel to the pages especially towards the top or beginning of a article where we can "Rate" the Article with a emoji. To me this is a very nice touch, and we can see the majority of the peoples votes and feel that we are participating . Thank-You Microsoft! this really improves the look and feel and allowing us to Participate. How Many Others Are Using This New Feature ?... Likes/Dislikes ?...
PC Temperature and Performance
Hello, How can I view the temperature and other performance of my laptop at present on Windows 10 Home ? Regards, Tomislav
The Emoji Panel in Windows 10 is a really cool feature, just very easy to insert and find the emojis we need. Very useful in chats. Shortcut: Windows Key + Period(.) And in MS Edge we just got to right click to open the panel. Thanks MS for the cool stuff. 😎👍
Why were Cortana and Search separated into different icons?
Prior to the Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version 1903), there was one icon. It allowed me to search and access my Cortana interests. Now, there are two different icons. The Search icon allows me to search, and that's it. The Cortana icon allows me to see my interests from Cortana. My question is: Why do we now have separate icons?
see which apps are affecting your battery life
I have few things to ask. Under see which apps are affecting your battery life and under Windows Explorer, the percentage goes up even while not using it. It is still going up. How to get it to go down while not in use? The percentage for Edge will go down when not in use. Windows Explorer did go down 1% from 21% to 20% but went back up 1% to 21% (when Windows Explorer is not in use). So, what does that mean and what fixes are there?
Win 10 1809 Chinese won't show on Language Bar.
HI All, We are on Windows 10 1809 64 Bit. I have been working to get the Chinese Simplified keyboard to show up as an option on the language selector on the taskbar. I Have the language bar enabled and set keyboard preloads via registry keys, but it does show for just about every other language I've tried (Swedish, Finnish, Hebrew, etc.) but once I change the code to Chinese Simplified (0000804) It does not populate as an option. I am not sure why this is the only language that does not show, but I need this for a Chinese class at our district. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thank you!
Time for a joke!
What do you call me and other people on the Windows Community who love math? The answer will be posted later.
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.
