    I don't but I try to help when I can. The point I'm trying to make is would it be more helpful if you posted/helped out in the OS that you're more familiar with??
    I'll be doing that anyway. I log on to Eight forums several times a day and check most sections for anything I can help with.. Having a look see here isn't going to impact that much.

    Hmmmmmmmmmm!. . .just wondering. . .does this mean that all of you who claim you won't be using Win 10 will no longer be posting about how bad it is will also not be posting here any more about how bad it is. I mean if you aren't going to use it will we still be getting post from you telling us it really is bad. If you don't use it how will you know. . .again just wondering. . .
    I've said several times that, while it won't be running as my primary OS, it will be running in a VM. So I actually will be using it. And yes, I'll be commenting about it - both the good and the bad, as I did re 8 and 8.1.


    Wenda.

    🖕 Reversed Hand With Middle Finger Extended

    💁 Information Desk Person With Cream White Skin Tone

    Timeline Of Windows Emoji Support

    Some may be surprised to learn that emoji support on Windows is not new. It dates back to 2012, with the release of Windows 8. The lack of support for emoji when using Chrome for Windows may be a factor in this.

    July 2009: Windows 7 is released, with no emoji support. Emoji only becomes included as part of the Unicode Standard in 2009, and is not in any form of widespread use outside of Japan.

    October 2012: Windows 8 is released, which includes emoji support out of the box; but only in black and white. Windows 7 receives an update which installs the same Segoe UI Symbol font used in Windows 8.

    October 2013: Windows 8.1 is released, which includes support for color emoji for the first time, provided by a new Segoe UI Emoji font. This uses the same images as Windows 8, but not shown in color for the first time.

    July 2015: Windows 10 is expected to be released. This is the first update to emoji characters since Windows 8.1 in 2013. There’s been a lot to catch up on in the past 18 months.

    It doesn't seem to matter what Microsoft does its alway wrong. In the past they didn't listen to people and that was wrong, now they're listening to everybody and that's wrong. I personally wish they'd stop listening to people or they're going to end up with a Platypus.
