I'm sure some of you may have noticed, while others may have not, but you can no longer pin websites to the start screen, even by pinning it to your taskbar and dragging to your start screen, it can no longer be done. I've been aware of this, and have working around it, but after this last update....... ok, well we'll leave it at that... I was chatting with Microsoft Tech support this afternoon, and after I finally got them to try and pin a web site to their start screen, they admitted they couldn't do it either. Funny though they had a work around? So here's the work around, and it involve Google Chrome! Open the website you want to pin to your Windows 10 Start Screen in Google Chrome. Yea, you read that right! Once your website is open, click on the three dots located in the upper right hand corner. Scroll down until you sees More Tools. Hover over that and choose Create Shortcut... a pop up will appear where you name your shortcut, and here is where it gets important! You need to check the box that says Open as Window, then click create. Now go back to your start screen and under recently added apps you will see your recently added website. There is one last step. With it there you will not be able to move it around. So while it is in the Recently Added Apps right click and choose Pin to Start Menu. Voila! You're done, and your websites are now back on your start screen. Let's do hope that the boys and girls in Redmond fix this!

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.

RE: Past Conversations Thanks Microsoft for Paying Attention
I'm going to take you all back to a couple of conversations I started on here, the first being Unable to Comment https://community.windows.com/en-us/conversations/unable-to-comment/9694c4ba-5b04-4c37-b42b-82d3caebd580?from=notifications in which I stated that I was no longer able to leave comments on certain websites. I am happy to say that Microsoft fixed whatever the problem was in Canary, and I am able to comment and even sign in again, instead of having to use either the regular version of Edge, or Chrome. Thanks Microsoft. BTW, the sites were mspoweruser.com, and disqus.com just in case you were wondering. No longer able to Pin Websites. https://community.windows.com/en-us/conversations/pinning-websites/79d9cb89-e558-4d17-ac96-4e6cf2b683cd?from=notifications This isn't totally fixed. The fix that is once again available is just the same as you see in Chrome, without the word shortcut is all. I suppose it will work for now.

Many users find that using an external keyboard with keyboard shortcuts for apps for Office helps them work more efficiently. For users with mobility or vision disabilities, keyboard shortcuts can be easier than using the touchscreen, and are an essential alternative to using a mouse. Here you can find links to most keyboard shortcut articles for apps for Office.
In Windows 7, and before, all you need to do is right click on the desk top and choose "new" - "shortcut" from the menu, and then paste the full URL from the target website into the shortcut target box. That doesn't work on Windows 10. The method, (probably relating to Microsoft's new Office web apps), is as follows -
