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!
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 🙏😊

VPN or not to VPN
I asked the question What is VPN , should I have one?, which is the best, what can it do for me? I ask for your help and advice on this question. I like to watch American tv channels from the UK via apps downloaded on the Microsoft store however some apps have been blocked by SucriFirewall website stating blocked due to location issuses. It was suggested that by having a VPN subscription my address would be disguised allowing me to watch the apps without problems. I would like to know even if this did not solve my problem is it still worth having and using a VPN subscription. thanks to anyone who comments.
Which is The Best Window For A Small Business Owner?
Hello, I am currently using Windows 8 but this is not because I really liked Windows 8 and its performance but the real reason for installing in my Pc is that in 2013. When I first bought my Pc then Windows 8 is so much popular and new to its edition in my country and so without any proper investigation and reading any informative blog I just go with Windows 8. Then after 1 or 2 years, I release that Windows 8 is not as great as people thought in the past or if we just simply compared it with Windows 7. I want to shift to Windows 7 but before it an another Windows edition appeared and everyone just surprised and it becomes popular version too at that time, Yes I am talking about Windows 10. Now I am reading hundreds of articles to decide which version is the best for me. I am a beginner so I have no proper knowledge about this stuff but I want reliable and best Windows for me. I am handling several clients' projects or say I am a small businessman so on basis of this which windows are best for my work? Thanks for giving me a platform to ask my query.
Never Jump To Conclusions! 👀
Hello Everyone, I'd like to share a little True story with all of you. The other day on patch Tuesday I downloaded all the updates and installed them to my system and all seemed fine. So the next day I was surfing the net and all of a Sudden my Microsoft 1850 Wireless Mouse froze-up and stopped responding after my system made that little noise that it does when you remove a device from a USB Port. So I thought maybe a reboot will fix the problem. And it did for a little while and then it did it again. So naturally my first thought was """OH NO A Bad Update!!!""" It wasn't doing that until the Update!... It's just gotta be that. Then I took a second and thought well maybe It's a mouse going bad, Yeap! you guest it, I jumped online and ordered a new one. Anyways!... After that I started thinking and I decided to remove the Mouse Dongola from the extra USB Port that came on my cooling pad and insert it into a different USB port on my device itself. Well Low And Behold It Worked Perfectly!... It seams that the USB Port on my Cooling pad has gone bad after many years of service And NOT the fault of Microsoft at all. The Moral Of The Story : Never Jump To Conclusions Because The Problem May Just Be On Your End.
