Hello again, we have another build and, thus, another hands on!

Up till now we’ve seen Microsoft Windows Store provide and update the so-called Modern Apps. Although the Windows 8.1 Store provide ability to download and install Win32 or as Microsoft will have you call them these days, Desktop Apps, neither of the two Operation Systems provided means to update Desktop Apps until now.
Lately there has been debates online with accompanying polls asking whether Microsoft will be able to deliver the final version of Windows 10 before the end of Summer as promised by them. Many people does not believe Microsoft will be finished with the “Final” version of Windows 10 before then. See, that is exactly theContinue reading “Explaining the Final Version Windows 10”
I’ll give you the poison pill straight away: Windows 10 cannot and will not be as Power-efficient compared to Windows 8! Not on an x86 device. On ARM, it’s another ball game. This is why MS is having issues with ARM devices and Desktop for Windows 10 generally. See, the reason here is simple, sinceContinue reading “Understanding Windows 10 TP Battery Performance on Mobile Devices”
The Sound Recorder App was one of the updated apps for Windows 10 January Technical Preview. The Sound Recorder App in Windows 8 was excellent, but it has a nasty design fault; you can’t get to the recordings unless you’re a geek that knows how to hack your device. The files then were always savedContinue reading “SoundRecorder now saves to Documents folder in Windows 10 JTP”
[Update] It seems this is a false alarm folks. You can now stop pressing the Retry button. We’ve just been informed by @GabeAul this upgrade is meant for Microsoft internal. We may eventually get it, but for now, it’s no go.

A few weeks back we informed of a development in Windows 10 Build 9879 in which Microsoft changed the name of Network node in File Explorer to “Computers and Devices”. Well guess what, they’ve changed the name back to Network with January Technical Preview (Build 9926) as you can see in the image above.
Awesome! Microsoft finally implements in Windows 10 January Technical Preview one of my most requested Security feature: Extended PIN. Since Windows 8, we’ve had three options to login to Windows after the initial First Time login with password: By Password By PIN Picture Password

Via the watchful eyes of our good friend @WinObs came a simple tweet about the new Alarms App in Windows 10 JTP with the screenshot as above. Of course I became curious as I haven’t had the time to checkout the app. I was instantly blown away. It is the most complete Alarms App we’veContinue reading “Windows 10 JTP Alarm App Blew Us Away”
With Windows 10, Microsoft will bring dynamic context menus to the desktop. In Windows 8.x and earlier, context menus on the desktop and desktop apps are too small to tap with the finger comfortably. In modern apps in Windows 8.x, the context menus were large enough to tap, but some might have found it tooContinue reading “Windows 10 Will Bring Touch Friendly Context Menus to the Desktop”
You thought MS was done with Windows 10 this year? You’re wrong!
They are still sneaking features into the OS while were all busy feasting.
Here is something geeky and not for the fainthearted. If you’re like me, you’ve not listened to Microsoft with the advise not to install Windows 10 Technical Preview on your production Machine. You believe every tech problem is there to be resolved.
