My Top Requests for Windows 10 Redstone 2:
1) Bring back Messaging app
2) Tabbed File Explorer
3) Add ability to set default value for NumLock for when Windows boots

How about a new UWP PodCast app? And fast boot like the desktop?

Surface Phone and Surface Band! :)

I'm on the slow ring and today, I started getting messages saying my version of Windows is old and it's been rebooting me every few hours. But MS hasn't released a slow ring build, so I can't...

Microsoft is really making it hard for people to stay in its eco system.

If they drop the Band, I'll have to get a FitBit (or AndroidWear or Galaxy Gear). If I have to switch to a...

I bought my last replacement Band 2 on May 2 and the band started ripping over the weekend - almost 3 months of use!

I got the tape you guys recommended. Hopefully, it will stop it from...

If you want to see the Messaging app back in Windows 10, please provide feedback to Microsoft via the Feedback Hub:

A tabbed File Explore would best most of those features.

Wednesday, June 29, 2016 - 20:29

I don't use Skype.

Wednesday, June 29, 2016 - 12:32

Sadly, one of the features I was most looking forward to, being able to read and send text messages from your desktop/laptop, has been dropped. :(

I hope they don't change the power cord again. I already had to get rid of two Band 1 power cords when I bought the Band 2. I now have three Band 2 power cords. It would be nice if they lasted...

Thanks. There was already a request for improved security. I upvoted it and added a comment.

Wednesday, June 29, 2016 - 07:53

One thing I would like to see is security. Right now, there's no way to secure the device. If you left your Band laying around, anyone could walk up to it and read your text messages and e-mails...

Well, for no apparent reason, Sticky Notes started working again today. No idea why.

Thursday, June 23, 2016 - 10:04

Sticky Notes isn't working any more for me. I can't even get the app to launch.

Is anyone else having this issue?

Monday, June 13, 2016 - 15:54

Well, the particular use case I'm thinking about is if I take the Band off to charge, go to another room in the house, will Basic track these steps, or is it only for longer walks?

"The first for data collection in either the Basic or Detailed modes. The only difference between these is the frequency with which data is collected."

Do you have any more detail on this?...

Thursday, June 9, 2016 - 07:48

Are you sure that the Slow Ring is more stable than the Fast Ring? Aren't the Slow Ring builds the exact same builds as the Fast Ring except you get them later and not as frequently? I say this...

Monday, May 16, 2016 - 10:02

Since the rips always seem to be at the top of the band, maybe the connectors extending out of the screen aren't angled enough?

BTW, when I tried to return mine to the Microsoft Store, the...

Yep, the Microsoft Band is poorly constructed. I just had to replace my band because it had the same problem.

Sunday, May 8, 2016 - 07:04

No, this happens after normal wear and tear. The Band is poorly constructed

Sunday, May 1, 2016 - 09:51

How about a band that doesn't tear?

Wednesday, April 27, 2016 - 11:54

It would be nice to see some actual numbers as to how much this improves charge times (ex: turning on Airplane Mode cuts charging time by 25% (or whatever the real number is)).

Monday, April 18, 2016 - 10:19

I like Cortana, but one problem - a fairly big one - is that you can't change your default personal assistant on other platforms. It's definitely not possible with iOS. I don't have an Android...

Saturday, March 26, 2016 - 09:10

Still horribly, horribly buggy:
- Refuses to sync with my Microsoft Band 2.
- Bluetooth controls don't work in my car (no FF, no rewind)
- Mail Live Tile is stuck with 6 unread e...

My 950 XL upgrade went fine. It didn't charge over night, but maybe I didn't fully connect it or something.

Saturday, January 16, 2016 - 14:12

As web developer, I know from first hand experience how much time, effort and money gets wasted supporting legacy systems. At my company, we still support IE8. Supporting obsolete browsers such...

Edge does have one significant advantage over Chrome is you're using a touch screen in that the scrolling is much better.

Wednesday, December 30, 2015 - 21:20

I'll also would like to see full support for file paths greater than 255 characters. This was a problem again at work this week. We shouldn't have to jump thru hoops just to do something simple...

Ah, thanks for the tip on notifications. I've made the appropriate changes to my computers and phone.
