Enabling "Hey Cortana" in Windows 10 Build 9926 Commented on: 8 weeks ago (January 29, 2015)

If you use the registry fix to bring back the 9879 Xaml start menu it breaks Cortana. Don't know of a way to use both at the moment--but hopefully this is just temporary and next build will see an...

Getting your bugs on Apple's radar Commented on: 8 weeks ago (January 29, 2015)

Using Macs for business is creating a lot of extra work for essentially nothing and often a deficit in capability and/or performance. It's like going around your elbows to get to your nose...;)...

Windows 10 Registry Tweaks for Hidden Features Commented on: 9 weeks ago (January 28, 2015)

There's another dword you can change along with EnableXamlStartMenu (brings back the 9879 start menu but disables Cortana search (for me, anyway.))

That's EnableStartMenu If you "0" this...

Gotchas with Windows 10 Build 9926, Known and Unknown Commented on: 9 weeks ago (January 28, 2015)

These three I have experienced:

*You can no longer drag tiles from the new Start Menu to the desktop.

Microsoft may be close to releasing a new Windows 10 Technical Preview build Commented on: 9 weeks ago (January 28, 2015)

9926 is very stable for me thus far. One thing I will never do is to install an intermediate build between official build releases--9901 wasted a lot of my time.

A Formal SuperSite Intro from Me, Jason Snell Commented on: 9 weeks ago (January 23, 2015)

Well, at least I know on this site the forum won't be full of people talking about Windows as it existed a decade ago, or longer, as if nothing had changed. One of the funniest, yet typical "...

The hardware I use (Richard Hay) Commented on: 9 weeks ago (January 22, 2015)

Good deal, Richard. (I have a Navy background, myself--didn't go the career route, though I was tempted at the time!) Your desktop system may serve to fill the large gap in Trent's otherwise...

Windows 10 Free for a Year for Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows Phone 8.1 Upgrades Commented on: 10 weeks ago (January 21, 2015)

Doesn't look good for a non-subscription deal for Win10, with subscription costs beginning year #2, so with Win7 good for another 5 years of updates and Win8.x probably for another 8-10 years,...

The Hardware I Use (Rod Trent): January 18, 2015 Commented on: 10 weeks ago (January 21, 2015)

I Made the Switch to iPhone 6--and Now I Miss My Windows Phone 8.1 Commented on: 10 weeks ago (January 16, 2015)
