    Hi there

    For me

    LONG FILE NAME SUPPORT (Caps intended). Often have problems with Windows - the restriction of 260 Chars for directory + file name is 100% archaic these days - especially if you have fairly descriptive names for music files and are serving them from any sort of Linux / non Windows type of server.

    I've posted this type of stuff before but : here we are (Music files in this case)

    Linux :

    Live Tiles are about as useful as a Screen door on a Submarine. It is just like when Microsoft though that everyone needed Gadgets on your desktop that you will never see. Just like having wallpaper that you will never see, because your open window covers it.
    I have a large monitor, and all my Windows 7 Gadgets were on the right edge of the screen. I got into the habit of not covering them. The live Weather, CPU, and Network gadgets were quite useful. And unlike Live Tiles, which in Windows 10 you must get to by clicking Start, the Windows 7 gadgets stayed on the screen as long as you wanted them to.

    Eliminate the cryptic hex codes in error messages once and for all.

    Ever had an update fail on you with an error message with a code like 0x80243004? Then you have to ask Microsoft or TenForums what the damned code means?

    Microsoft already knows what the error codes mean. So why don't they just tell you the error code, plus what it means? Why force you to look up hexadecimal error codes? With all the money that Microsoft pours into making their OSes more user-friendly, didn't anyone suggest not leaving their users wondering about hex codes?

    A Windows 10 Mobile version that will run on a Raspberry Pi SBC. I don't see it ever happening, but I'll keep asking for it anyway. Windows 10 IoT just doesn't do it for me.
    Have you started to notice that they are using the term "Internet of Things" to generalize the whole structure. That is just going to really make things a mess when we have to break it down, like trying to explain Cloud Computing.

    There was a post earlier that I need you to pop in on. Same subject as this post. Windows 10 IoT Unviersal App executable? - Windows 10 Forums

    Just because you personally don't use live tiles, doesn't mean the rest of the world doesn't. I like them and use them. Only problem is the Start Screen won't stay open if you switch focus to anything else. Kind of defeats the whole purpose, especially if you run multiple monitors like I and many other do. I end up leaving the weather App open full screen. I would love to leave the start Screen open on one monitor and do other stuff on my other two.
    That was always the argument when 8 came out. When I had dual screens at work, having a Calculator open or minimized is great. But when you start having different tiles that could be coded either poorly or very well, or they are programs converted to Tiles, we never know what could happen.

    My only gripe that I had with the State of Illinois was that the so called LAN coordinators did not know what a Forest for the Trees was, nor could they fix the issue when we would have a huge memory leak from a internal Website that we would use for plugging in received faxes. By the time you left for lunch, Internet Explorer would already be eating up 1.5GB of the 8GB installed. At first it was 4GB, then they realized that the crappy programming by those who just threw something together was not worth fixing, so solution was to just add more RAM and then if the system locked up in the middle of something before you could save, just shut down and reboot.

    The only thing that I would have open if I needed it on my second screen at work, while having windows opened on my main that was Acrobat and Internet Explorer for data entry at one job.

    Other screen was usually a Spreadsheet for items requested to pull or a email for a request, with the Calculator or task taking sheet as a small window on the other.

    I just cannot get into hiding stuff behind the windows when you can minimize and then click to pull up, since most work stations are the most basic of the basic and I have had too much loss of work when the system died in the middle of having over 50 pages scanned in, but the file never saved, because it was set by the programmer to make it to be that way. State Government at its finest.

    The other was for imaging, so the main monitor was the image capture for the Microfiche/Microfilm machine and Adobe or Nuance to stitch multiple PDF's together before emailing, until we went to just capture and save to a Data Management System that our research unit for court documents and medicaid financials switched after we got flooded out of our work location at the main Child Support building I worked in the Basement. So out of it we pushed through over 1 Million pages in less than six months. All of that was documents that were not in the greatest of shape when they tried to dry them. But we had to get them electronic because we were being used as the test unit to have all states start doing the same.

    Couldn't you write a batch script that closed and reopened the page automatically when the system was idle, and give you a warning when the system was running out?

    Being able to choose priority like you can in Linux with low risk to high risk and what primary and secondary servers. Also have where you can set to create a task to wake up and pull the updates or if on a Domain, it can be set with the server to poll for the updates.

    If windows was not so locked down, there is a lot that could be done to fix what they have royally screwed up with 10 every time they think that it is better for the end user. Who knows what is going to happen when the Peasants grab the pitchforks and torches when Redstone 2 rolls out next year.
