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.
win10 ver 2004, folder options bug? (fixed)
(Edit, not bad, not even 30hrs from first update with the bug and another updates that fix it were available) build 2019.10.17.6232201; Control panel -> File Explorer Options-> tab 'View' or any file explorer window -> tab 'View' -> Options-> Change Folder and search options both open almost same settings, and the 'Advanced settings' apply in both cases to all folders; now when i select 'Show hidden files, folders, or drives' and unselect 'Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)' which asks for confirmation, then i click on 'Apply' and 'OK' nothing happens, i go back to File Explorer Options-> tab 'View' , and what i selected & unselected before has been undone, i repeat everything once more and now the hidden files appear and the advanced settings has been successfully altered, however if i want to hide all those files again, i need to repeat it twice in order for it to work; can anyone confirm if it happens on his/her PC as well?
HP HP Stream laptop
I am looking to find a way to update my window 10 since I have HP Stream laptop that my wife order from HSN. It hasn't be update for awhile no matter what I did by following all the instructions on almost every available website or using Youtube. I do have an external drive but it will not let me use it to update my window. I rather do this the easy way then to follow someone instruction that contains too many pages to follow. I need the quickest way to resolve this unless I have to pay for a remote assistance to repair this laptop.

To change the default Pc administrator name
When installing windows in my computer the installation boy gave a odd name "user" which I want to change and at that I want to give my name. I tried to change the user profile manly times it was changed but it also shows the previous name "user" and after changing I couldn't get some of the permission such as to open folder option using shortcut menu asking for a permission from the administrator but previous one was not asking for the permission to do this simple tasks. Overall I want to remove that previous admin.. name and give my name a new admin... name. Please clarify how to do it. Thank you,
Project to your PC screen
Windows 10 comes with yet another great feature. You can project another device to your PC screen. Though most devices are not designed to be projected to, it is possible. With this feature, instead of just projecting to your PC, you can also control the device from your PC. I find this best helpful when you would like to monitor someone else's PC, like a minor. Unlike Remote desktop, the device does not need to be connected to the same network as your PC. Such like devices include Smartphones through Miracast and other PCs through Miracast or intel WiDi. All you need to do on your PC is click on the start menu or search and type 'connect'. The app will appear and open it. Before connecting, windows will open the 'projecting to this PC' setting and confirm if your PC is compatible with Project. if it is compatible, change the settings to your liking. Once done, Open the connect app and on your other device, if a PC, click Windows key + P and select connect to a wireless display. On the connect tab, yo will see your PC's name. Select it and follow any instructions required, and enjoy your connection. you can also access the connect tab through the action center.
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?
