Windows 10 device notifications appearing on mobile device
I call it Reverse notifications i.e. critical Windows 10 notifications appearing on mobile device i.e. on Your phone app installed on mobile device. It will be great to have critical windows 10 notifications appearing on your mobile device having Your phone app installed. For e.g. if my Windows 10 laptop's battery is running low then if I get a notification of my Laptop's batter running low as a Your phone notification on my mobile phone it will be very useful for me in cases when I am not near my laptop, I can call a person sitting next to me to plug in the charger to my laptop. It can also be useful for cases where say, my laptop has finished restarting after a long (taking hours) successful update completion and again I am not near me laptop, I get a notification on my mobile device, Windows Updates installed successfully. Another example can be when the Windows Laptop is disconnected from an internet source (Wifi/Lan), it sends out a notification to your mobile device having Your phone app installed. Have some more ideas around it!
Memory Use in low-memory devices
With each feature update (since 1607, at least), Windows 10 uses more memory (and disk space, but that's another day). It's getting to where 50-60% of RAM in a tablet/2-in-1 (2GB RAM, Win10 Home 32-bit) or older laptop (4GB RAM, Win10 Home 64-bit) is taken for a multitude of services and other tasks most of which just site there - seldom actually using CPU cycles after system startup. Yes, we should buy new computers with more RAM, on a never-ending cycle. Sorry, not going to happen in the real world where budgets are tight. What Windows needs is to be more cognizant of what the machine it's running on has available, and adjust its running footprint to match. A good rule of thumb might be: 50% of RAM when not running apps explicitly opened by the user is probably too much. If I don't have a lot of RAM, load those services only when they're needed and unload them afterward. Yes, that would slow down things when the services are needed and have to be reloaded, but the overuse of RAM is slowing things down anyway by pushing things into swap when any significant app is opened. Using swap is a real pain with spinning rust, but not great with eMMC or slower SSDs either. Look in Task Manager sometime and note how much is sitting there at the bottom of the process list nearly all the time, using no CPU once the system has stabilized following startup; those tasks and services should be candidates for killing during normal use. At minimum (assuming a reasonably-sized C: drive), those should be swapped out after a certain amount of "dead" time without waiting for something else to be loaded that forces the issue (and slows the load of a task that is actually needed). ???

Night light: Why Windows won't keep you up at night
The light shining from your PC screen does more than just display your work. As Windows engineer Tyler Donahue explains, one of a computer screen's eye-opening effects led to creation of the night light feature in Windows 10.
All of my devices crashed simultaneously. Help please???
This seems like paranoia but it is true. Had 5 devices crash at the same time August 5, 2020. Went to different town and purchased new phone. Set phone up and it new who I was and had already had update with malware waiting. As well as being controlled by third party. The sophistication was unbelievable. The possible outcomes are nightmarish. Lost all contacts, passwords simultaneously. This is my last hope. Hacked Edge AND Hacked Google
