Clearing Task View History
Hello Windows Community, How can I clear my task view history?
What's the future of Win32 and UWP?
For those who aren't familiar, Win32 applications are your traditional desktop programs. They are typically installed via a downloaded installer, can be run directly from their exe files and are located in the Program Files folder of every Windows computer. UWPs, on the other hand, are essentially glorified mobile apps as part of Microsoft's last-ditch effort to gain developer support for Windows Phone. They can only be distributed via the Windows Store, designed from the ground up to be mouse-unfriendly, and use a completely different application architecture than traditional programs. UWPs cannot be launched directly from their exe files; their program files are hidden away in special directories that regular users are not allowed to access. The idea behind UWP was to create an application that could be programmed once and run on all Windows devices, both phone and desktop. This way, it would be easier to create software for Windows Phone, thus incentivizing developers to write more mobile apps. However, with the demise of Windows Phone and the failure of Windows 8, it doesn't seem that UWPs need to exist anymore. Yet, despite this, Microsoft is throwing more and more resources into UWP. They've converted all of their first party-software to the UWP platform, made it the only kind of software that can run on Windows VR/AR/MR headsets, and stopped adding new features to Win32 entirely. Where is Microsoft going with this? Does Microsoft plan to eventually deprecate Win32? Microsoft hasn't made their goals or intentions very clear, and it's causing no small amount of concern in the developer community. The fact that they have no public plans to deprecate Win32 at the moment is little comfort- everything Microsoft has done so far has indicated otherwise.

Complete mirrored backup (Everything)
Hello, I know I can make a backup of the OS (System Image Recovery) , but is there a way to also back up all the programs and apps installed? In case a hacker threatens to wipe out the hard disk it would be so nice to not even bother and as the ransom will not bde paid, just reinstall everything. I´m sure I'm not the first to wish this. Thanks for any idea, Ingemar
When is the Inbuilt Support to Mirror iPhone to PC arriving?
Does anyone know if Microsoft has any plans to manage smartphones (iPhone, Android devices specifically) from PC ? I am talking about features like Mirroring your phone notifications to PC (Call, Text notifications etc.), Mirroring screen to PC etc. Currently, there are only third party apps that enable users to do that. But that comes at a cost.

Ability to pin a Sticky Note?
I've used Windows 10 Sticky Notes for a while, and I can't find any "pin to top" feature on the application. If I could pin a Note on top of windows so that it wouldn't disappear when I click out of it, it would be very useful. For now, I'm stuck using third-party applications. Thanks :)
