Announced by Microsoft in July and greeted by stunned disbelief, these HP Stream laptops deliver on the promise that a Windows device can be affordable without being cheap. They aren't just good enough. They're great.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/mobile/hp-stream-1113-best-tech-deal-2014" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/mobile/hp-stream-1113-best-tech-deal-2014#comments Windows 8 Windows 8.1 Windows 8.1 Update 1 Windows 8.1 Update 2 Hardware Mobile Sun, 21 Dec 2014 15:50:00 +0000 47731 at http://winsupersite.com Windows App Studio Adds Support for TouchDevelop http://winsupersite.com/software-development/windows-app-studio-adds-support-touchdevelop <div class="field-deck"> Now it's only for universal apps too </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Microsoft has updated its web-based Windows App Studio developer tool with support for TouchDevelop, a powerful, touch-friendly programming language that includes a physics engine.

But the firm today explained why it halted the releases when it did.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/microsoft-explains-lack-new-windows-technical-preview-builds" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/microsoft-explains-lack-new-windows-technical-preview-builds#comments Windows 10 Wed, 17 Dec 2014 18:26:00 +0000 47601 at http://winsupersite.com Here's Where the New OneDrive Strategy Falls Apart http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/heres-where-new-onedrive-strategy-falls-apart <div class="field-deck"> Basically, everywhere </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Microsoft's decision to revert OneDrive in Windows 10 to the system used by Windows 7 is a controversial one. On the one hand, the company argues that it needs to make this change so that OneDrive can be more reliable, and can more easily pick up support for shared files and better photo access. But as I'm coming to realize the more I use this system, this change severely cripples OneDrive. And surely there is a happy middle ground to be found here somewhere. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/heres-where-new-onedrive-strategy-falls-apart" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/heres-where-new-onedrive-strategy-falls-apart#comments OneDrive Windows 10 Tue, 16 Dec 2014 17:33:00 +0000 47531 at http://winsupersite.com On the Road with Windows 10 Build 9901 http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/road-windows-10-build-9901 <div class="field-deck"> Some highs, some lows </div> <div class="node-body article-body">I'm on the road this week and figured the trip might be a good way to stress test the recently leaked Windows 10 build 9901. And stress is perhaps the right word: In using the build regularly this way, it's become obvious that this build isn't ready for prime time despite its initial sheen of quality.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/road-windows-10-build-9901" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/road-windows-10-build-9901#comments Windows 10 Tue, 16 Dec 2014 13:44:00 +0000 47521 at http://winsupersite.com Windows 10 Comes Into Focus http://winsupersite.com/windows-10-comes-focus <div class="node-body link-body">In late January, Microsoft will hold a special event for press and analysts at which it will unveil more information about Windows 10 and how it will work on all kinds of devices, not just traditional PCs. But we don't need to wait until next month to gain a clearer picture of Windows 10: Thanks to a number of leaks, we can already see some of the hidden features that will make this release a more cohesive whole.</div> <div class="field-image-promo"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_promo" width="595" height="335" alt="" src="http://winsupersite.com/site-files/winsupersite.com/files/win10-hero.jpg?1418734512" /> </div> <div class="field-link-target"> <span>Open In New Window:&nbsp;</span> No </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-10-comes-focus" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Windows 10 Tue, 16 Dec 2014 12:54:00 +0000 47511 at http://winsupersite.com Windows 10 Tip: Pin Items to the Start List http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/windows-10-tip-pin-items-start-list <div class="field-deck"> A wealth of pinning options </div> <div class="node-body article-body">With the return of the Start menu in Windows 10, we suddenly have a wide range of places in the UI where we can pin frequently-used items for easy access. Which of these you use will depend on how you work, of course, and some options may be superfluous to one user but be indispensable to the next. The Start list in the new Start menu is one such example.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/windows-10-tip-pin-items-start-list" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/windows-10-tip-pin-items-start-list#comments Windows 10 Mon, 15 Dec 2014 20:51:00 +0000 47451 at http://winsupersite.com Windows 10 Build 9901: New Settings http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/windows-10-build-9901-new-settings <div class="field-deck"> Some changes that really matter </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Not surprisingly, some of the biggest changes in Windows 10 build 9901 can be found in Settings, the new Modern replacement for PC Settings. Here, I take a quick look at some of the settings changes I see in this build.
