    Please let the users customize Windows in a more easier way.


    I like the Windows 10 design, it's beautiful for me. But I think that this system could be more customizable.

    I'll talk first about icons:

    • the user could change icons of main system folders, start menu and the taskbar more easier;
    • also, let them create themes with those customizations, like what already exists, but now with more things.

    The Start Menu could be better too:

    • name the Start Menu tile groups;
    • content tabs in Start Menu (instead of icons in the top, let the user put them in the small sidebar (the one that has an hamburguer & power buttons) and select an icon from files or a list of icons that are in the same style);
    • more custom tile sizes (like, small height, but with normal width);
    • let us change desktop application tiles to more things than small and normal;
    • "horizontal scroll for Start Menu" option;
    • change tile color;
    • change tile name;
    • custom categories in the Start Menu "applications" sidebar (Note: I know that there is a way to add folders to it, but it feels so inconsistent and i think that UWP applications can't go there);

    about Taskbar:

    • icon groups (when the group is clicked, it shows a pop-up with the icons inside it);
    • taskbar opacity options;
    • fix the non-colored scroll bar when the taskbar has multiple lines/pages;
    • [WEIRD IDEA] option to "break" the sidebar into three blocks: one for the main icons (Start Menu, Cortana & Task View), other for applications and other for the system tray (plus "My People", Clock and Notifications). NOTE: this would work better with auto-hiding the taskbar. (It's a bit Chrome-OS-like)

    about Cortana:

    • let her answer to questions typed in the box;
    • integration with IFTTT and Zapier;

    and finally, about Windows Explorer:

    • tags group in the left sidebar (at the bottom);
    • dark mode;
    • let the user add custom "master groups" to the left sidebar;
    • customizable Quick Acess view (add more types of groups);

    :)

    Current active users that are friends

    The other reason I suggested this is that users can add characters to their username that are not alphanumeric (e.g. user*). This confuses things somewhat when looking at the list.

    Windows 10 1709 System Restore problems...


    That seems to be an attempt at Option 2 in the tutorial, which requires you to
    a. Boot to a command prompt (Did you?)
    b. You then seem to be mixing steps 3,4 and 5, thus your command is incorrect.

    I suggest Option 1 is easier.

    If you still have problems, please repost listing each specific step and saying which option from the tutorial you are using. Thanks.
