It’s been scarcely over a week since I’ve had a post published on this blog. The lack of contact through WP has all been so that I can make some decisions that may or may not make any difference in my life. I’m not one to put things off. I want problems solved the minute they come up. But, I’m mystified as to even accurately construe these issues. One thing is for sure though. This process in trying to figure this all out is tiring. Something I wasn’t expecting at all. I had been thinking it would do the opposite, making me too hyper. Stubbornness will see me through.
Ten is out. I’m talking about Windows10. I didn’t have to pay the $119+ to get it due to a promotional giveaway Microsoft was doing. (Sorry, the giveaway ended July 29th.) There aren’t a lot of differences that are noticeable to the user, but the ones that are, I have to say, I’m kind of impressed with.
The seen changes:
- The side start menu is back on the desktop. It looks different, of course. The apps fit into it making the entire window wider. It doesn’t look obnoxious though.
- The taskbar at the bottom can be adjusted for what you want at the click of an icon on the same bar. You can decide between having the taskbar color blend with your desktop screen, another color of several to choose from, or just have it black.
- The search is no longer in the start menu. It’s on the taskbar. One less click.
- The Control Panel on the start menu is now called Settings. The interface for all that is in this section is more user-friendly. And, they’ve added Tablet Mode to this section.
The rest is like Windows 8.1 as far as I can see. If you’re thinking you need to upgrade your Windows program, I’d say go for Windows10.
I tried the new browser, Edge. Except for being able to actually put notes and draw on the websites, I was disappointed. I guess if you had reason to keep track of a website for whatever reason, you could make notes on it, circle things, and keep the webpage handy somewhere. However, because of what I find wrong with the program, this little perk isn’t worth it. The browser runs slow and sometimes stalls. It isn’t set up to transfer favorites/bookmarks either. In my opinion, it’s a failure.
