Ramblings of an old Doc
17 hidden (and good) features
Published on April 2, 2017 By DrJBHL In Personal Computing

 

This just in from an early updater to the north of us (me, anyway)...

"Microsoft may have talked up the creativity aspects of the Windows 10 Creators Update, but some of the best things about Windows’ major releases are all the little conveniences that fly under the radar.

Some of these are truly new additions—USB Audio 2.0 support, for example—while others are once-buried features that have gained new prominence, like the family options breakout within Windows Defender. Some features only show up if you have the proper hardware—how’s that for a hidden feature?...

...Gaming, 3D content creation, Cortana, Edge, Windows Ink: These may be the high points of the Windows 10 Creators Update, as evidenced by our review. But on the following slides we shine a light on some of the fun little features we couldn’t dive into in our main story. Heck, you might find these more valuable than anything else!" - Mark Hachman, PCWorld

Take a moment...it's a nice slide presentation.

@Wizard1956......you're right. I apologize.

That's ok, Ross. No harm, no foul.  It was meant in a light-hearted way. Just putting things into perspective.

 I'm not the only member traveling down that road.

We all are, bud. No one can see his 'expiration date'. Some have a better guesstimate than others, but no one really knows.

Hope they effed up royally with yours, btw...for purely selfish reasons, mine and of course, yours.

So...here's the deal. Wiz is right about antiquated. I've decided to go with what really works, aside from my experimenting with SMX. The only non-SD proggies left are Rainlendar and Rainmeter. I've done rainies but not Rainmeter. I did two walls and they turned out pretty good. I've done docks and tiles. So what's left? WindowBlinds! I'm going to indulge in all of the above, even if SKS scares me. LOL

So what's left?

You could try CursorFX and Iconpackager, as well as various loose icons for a number of programs and services.  You could also contact the WindowBlinds skinners to see if you could add these elements to those blinds that don't have any 'complimentary' cursors and icons to go with them.

There's also Winamp... Jafo's goto media player.  It may have lost on-going support from the developer, but many people still use Winamp as their default media player.

No, not leaving anything out, just adding some that you hadn't mentioned.

Now why on Earth would you want a cat?  They stink up the place and hack up furballs all over the joint. Oh, and if you say it's to keep you rodent free, we got a couple of [not smelly] dogs that do that rather effectively.

However, if it's a digital cat that don't crap inside and is economical cos it only eats bytes, then that's okay.

Does anybody want one? I got 8! Mr. Fidge who's almost 9...Khaleesie, Tieren and Tyler, all a year old. Lil Dak, Khaleesi's baby, 3 months old and three little males about two weeks old, give or take a day. Those are Tyler's brood. Four AM hijinks!

I knew there was something I liked about you.

We've had up to four indoor cats at once but at our home in Minonk IL, Theda cared for 39 of the little critters outdoors rain or shine, below zero temps and a foot of snow wouldn't keep her from feeding and caring for  "her kids"

I've had a fascination with cats for as long as I can remember. Maybe its their independence. Only got room for five though. The kittens will need a good home. I've got people looking.
