    UI still looks dreadful. Icons are always going to look bad stuck inside a box. Compare to the taskbar which looks much nicer.

    Check out %SystemRoot%\System32\moricons.dll if you want icons from Windows 3.x and for MS-DOS apps, untouched since the good old CGA days.

    In what way is this different from Apple forcing the same thing for iOS or macOS devices (or Google doing the same thing for Android devices)? Basically, it isn't.

    I'm not sure about macOS, but I believe Google and Apple have always required accounts for phone devices. The issue here is that MS is removing functionality for no reason other than business purposes. It's interesting that this change will only ###### people off. I don't see anyone saying this is a good thing. Another reason this is a bad idea is now this will be a huge hassle if you're trying to create a virtual machine or just install a copy for testing purposes. Neither Google or Apple require accounts for their devices. You can bypass both logins during the initial OOBE.

    No thanks. Microsoft knows that they will lose all Windows users to Linux and Mac OS eventually so they are trying to secure that data flow of information they get from Windows 10. If there is such a thing as perfection in creating malware, that would be Windows 10 which by itself is the biggest and the most sophisticated malware software ever created.

    Anyone remember when you could just easily chose whatever the hell you wanted when installing Windows? Now you have to “trick” the operating system in order to gain some control. A damn shame what has happened to my beloved Windows. Just embarrassing.

    How long until you can't even do that and they tell you that you are required to have an internet connection to install Windows?

    Of course Google wants to lure people to use their own browser instead. This is a dirty tactic and I hope Microsoft takes the initiative to block the message...

    I'm glad I purchased the DVD versions of these games back in the day. It's appaling that music has been removed from the Steam version over time. I understand that licenses etc. expire but they managed to work around this no problem with Vice City where only new purchases of the game are missing the affected tracks. It's a bit disappointing that a company such as Rockstar would cheap out like this in my opinion. It just doesn't look good.

    The only thing that can and will flop harder than a new Windows Phone is the Surface Duo running Android - in a world overflooding with Android phones and entrenched Android OEMs, the Surface Duo is indeed DOA. Now I don't really mind, but it sucks that it takes the pretty cool Surface Neo down with it.

    Mines similar, but don't actually use my Gmail for anything but YouTube. i only have chrome installed for google products. And i use Brave on my iPhone to watch youtube only. I dont use their search, or their email. Its not easy to stop using google. But it can be done you just have to change the way you do things. Well Youtube is pretty useless without a Gmail account Why do i need a gmail account to watch youtube?

    Oh please, move to Linux. Go ahead. People like you complain and "threaten" Microsoft with moving to Linux all the time. They very rarely do. When Windows 10 came out tons of people said "I'm moving to Linux" and "When Windows 7 is EOL I'm moving to Linux". Not many of them did so. Well, count me as one of the people who has I guess. I was a Microsoft cheerleader for years. Started a job where I was given a Mac, coincidentally about the same time Windows 10 released and was causing me problems on my home machines. Now I run Debian everywhere with a Windows VM for the single app I haven't found an equivalent for. I won't even run MS Office on any platform anymore, since most of my usage is spreadsheets and Libre Office fxxks with the data a lot less than Excel and makes my life so much easier. For the record I loved Windows 8, totally onboard with that. They screwed the pooch with 10, and it's hardly gotten better since the first year when it repeatedly force installed a broken driver on my main machine. I don't miss it. At all.

    I noticed the same thing a while back. However, I found if you click "sign in with my Microsoft account" and type in a gibberish fake email it will give an error and then allow you to create a local account.

    Wrong. You can install one of the *several* alternative app stores on Android and never have to use a Google account at all.

    Is it possible that one stick of RAM is broken? It worked when you only had 8GB right? You should start with testing if the PC boots up fully and properly with one stick (then swap it for the other one in the same slot) so you can rule out if it is a RAM or motherboard problem.

    As far as being comparable, the OnePlus and Samsung devices are going to be about as close as you're going to get right now I believe unfortunately. As much as I'm invested in the Android ecosystem I may actually consider an i device depending on the price of their next SE model once announced. I'd miss being able to customize my home screen but Apple has come a long way in a lot of other areas in iOS. Yea, I had a Samsung S5 and S7 and it was okay, my Girlfriend had the S8 and it was brutally slow. There was so much Samsung bloat on it it was crazy and the battery was garbage. It has sort of made me leery of Samsung. Beyond that, her S8 had like 1 major Update and was left. I don't want to pay >1000$ for something only supported for 2 years. At least I am not alone in my consideration in moving from Android to iOS pretty much purely due to the device options and support,. The funny thing about Samsung's is their flagships for some reason perform worse than their mid-tier models. My friend has had the last few Note devices and they quickly slowed way down and the batteries all started to crap out. I have a Galaxy A6 and it's still performing rather well a year and a half after I got it. Can't explain it lol guess it's the lack of that extra flagship bloat/gimmicks they add.

    yeah they probably started improving again since then. It's past the point for me personally to care though. Their phones are priced to high for me anyway in my general budget. I'm on a no contract carrier so I buy phones outright when I get new usually. I tend to stay in the $350 or less range.

    Did you read the LE page? Looks like nothing has to change client side, just they will do a verify check from multiple servers in multiple locations. As warwagon said LE is designed to be set up as an automated task to handle re-generation... Are you on shared hosting and unable to control your own cron jobs or something?

    It's probably because Samsung will actually work with MS so this stuff works like it should while trying to get it to work with Googles stuff is a one way street. And who knows if Google won't just do something silly at some point that breaks any integration MS does only to turn around and say "oops".

    This factory and forest aside, can you please explain what your plans are with the millions of tons of toxic waste with the dead Lithium batteries after they wear off? It's a tricky question that Musk always dodges. Yes, you can (kinda) recycle Lithium batteries, too bad the process costs around 5 times more than mining it, so in essence no one on Earth is doing it. And the process also emits greenhouse gases by the way. The US is all about Tesla now, Musk this, Musk that, Made in Murrica, such green, so innovation, but in reality, it's just a different, somewhat "better" form of pollution. Someone's definitely clueless in this case, but curiously it's not the green league this time.

    So a OS for mobile dual screen devices is targeting mobile devices, you don't say? Who said anything about running this on desktops? Though dual screen laptops are a different story and those will run this. Though I've already seen twitter posts from people who'd like to have this shell on their desktops already, so you're clearly not talking about everyone here. And the "mobile" ship hasn't sailed, the "smartphone" ship did. Dual screen and folding devices are a whole new mobile market that no one has really taken control of yet. laptops are also mobile devices. No they are not. 🤣🤣🤣

    When will Linux or Mac ever be relevant? I am starting to see a sad trend on Neowin now with Windows bashing for clicks and comments. Don't become like dead Betanews.com When will broken record players stuck on a loop ever be relevant? I guess never, just like yourself.

    Everyone was freaking out about Hauwei but out of the major carriers in the USA, Verizon, Spring, AT&T, T-Mobile... they generally don't use Hauwei, it's usually smaller ones that do to save money.. so it's a big surprising that US Cellular is going samsung, but hey if they want to spend the money go for it

    This is old news. They've been doing this for a month or two, which I discovered awhile back when I tried setting up a new computer. All you need to do is unplug your ethernet and/or disable your wi-fi, type in your local username, then go through the setup until you're past the Q&A asking for email addy, Cortana and other preferences etc., then plug it back in and proceed. Problem solved. (Sorry if someone else posted this workaround!) Have a good day, all.

    Not as easy as that.....My S10 doesn't let you record directly to an SD card. It needs to be internal storage. I guess it's probably something to do with the speed Well, at the very least you can move the file to SD once it's captured.

    It’s literally tree farm forest that was destined and grown for logging. Along with Tesla having to replant any tree they cut down its German law. Absolute nuts stopping this.

    Be cautious with this. I am not a fan of their website or this particular tweaker as I had a bad experience. Many of the tweaks on The Windows Club are flat out wrong or don't work. And the tweaker is the same - sometimes causes irreversible damage by tweaking wrong settings. They don't know what they are doing - sort of like amateur developers. Instead I would recommend Winaero Tweaker which is very reliable and safe.

    You don't know that at all, the container vs native is said to be pretty close. I doubt you'll notice the difference. At that point you are better with Linux and running Windows Win32 apps through Wine. I hope someday you find a topic that is easy to understand. Keep trying. Let's talk about Windows 10x in two years, I will remind you of what I said today Same, old timer
