Compressing C:\ drive
My system - NVME SSD, i7-8750H CPU and 16 GB RAM. Would there be a "noticeable" performance hit if I compress my C: drive using the "compress this drive to save space" option? The C: drive contains Windows system files, image and video files, games, etc. I have already compressed my D: and E: drives but maybe the C: drive is an exception since it contains the Windows system files.

Adding an warning App to Laptop or PC.
Many of us with Laptops and PCs go through issues like updates and cyber attacks, errors and corruption issues. Many of us have been away from out devices when something happened. Could Microsoft add an app to all of their window devices that could send a warning alert to a cell phone or other device to let us know that something is happening? If so, could that app be used to shut down to go into safe mode to help a PC or laptop remotely to prevent further damage?
If there was a new file system what would you want over NTFS
Ok, so as many as you know, the ReFS file system is essentailly gone now, as there really isn't much point for it to exist. The problems were essenitally it uses more power, it can't be booted from, and despite it's slightly faster speed and emulation safety and "Resilient File System" what would you want from a hardware prespective? As you do not know, NTFS basically stores information in this format NTFS Boot sector-You know, to boot the device. MFT-Master file table-Basically stores the metadata, and location, retrival as a result. File system data- The actual files are stored here. MFTC-Copy of the Master file table if something goes horribly wrong. (Below significantly generalizes significant amounts of information.) I would want, significant focus on multi-core optimization of the file system(Such as utilizing the cache of the cpu much more effectively, 3mb L1 cache pls), such as allocating metadata of a file in a seperate location as a "cache" possibly including thumbnails directly into the file system(meaing goodby thumbxxx.db)(and add more security if stenography is that scary) I would also prefer the MFT or a replacement of it, to become optimizable for redundant file access, such as prioritizing OS files by linking it directly to the file system with secure boot. Please do not just say "I want reliability, security, and improved performance for the next file system XD🐍" I know my wants are completely ignorant of device security, but I do not care about it.
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.

i am unable to update my computer and its become too slow
please help me get out from this
Prior to 2004, I used a Windows-based computer. I was unhappy with Windows because of constant "blue screens of death", hackers planting viruses, etc...When I became a truck driver in 2004, I mainly used a mobile phone and started using Google products. I like their products and they all work seamlessly with each other. Now, I am a full-time Care-Provider for my mother and just purchased a new computer with Windows 10 Pro installed. I decided to give Microsoft apps a try once again because I do like their products. On my PC there are no problems, but on my Android phone, I just can't seem to get Cortana to work hands-free, and with certain apps. I do understand that there is a war between Microsoft, Apple, Google and any other companies that are out there, but, the customer (that would be you and I) should be able to use whatever Assistant we choose to work with any apps that we like and use. Case in point: the Google Assistant comes on automatically when I say "OK Google" (hands-free), and I can set a timer, ask about the weather, play my favorite music in the Google Play app, etc....no problem....Today I downloaded Cortana to work with all my apps and I cannot even get it to turn on without tapping the microphone button. I made it my default app, turned on all the permissions, etc...and I am discouraged with Microsoft again. I haven't given up yet, but I had to switch back to the Google Assistant just so I can do the things I need to do hands-free, which comes with a cost of not being able to use some of the Microsoft apps unless done manually. I like Microsoft's To-Do List, but Google Assistant will only open Google's Task app. It just defeats the whole purpose of downloading all of Microsoft's apps if I can't use everything seamlessly. I use Amazon Music now, and neither Assistant will open it. I would really like to use whatever Assistant I choose with the default apps that I select. Now, am I doing something wrong or does this sound about right?
