Windows 10 Universal File Explorer update hints at interesting future

Windows 10 Universal File Explorer update hints at interesting future

When Microsoft launched its touch-centric Windows 8 for the desktop, it was met with a great deal of resistance to the radically different way of interacting with desktops. Microsoft has since then stepped back a bit and offered the familiar traditional Windows desktop again. It has, however, flip-flopped between touch-based and non-touch UIs. Case in point is the telling lack of a touch-based file manager on Windows 10. Things, however, seem to be changing with some surprising updates to the UWP universal File Explorer that might be setting the stage for the ever-elusive Project Andromeda foldable device.

Surface Go: what you’re really paying for

Surface Go: what you’re really paying for

There are few things in tech history that have gone down in history to be so polarizing, like Apple’s removal of the headphone jack, the notch, and the Surface Go. Reviews are all over the place but, unsurprisingly, they can be easily grouped into the +1s and the -1s. And it is one of those rare cases on the Internet where both sides are actually right. Because at the end of the day, the Surface Go’s real problem isn’t its specs, the iPad, or even Windows 10 S mode. Its real enemy is perception.

Windows 10 Sticky Notes coming to Android, iOS

Windows 10 Sticky Notes coming to Android, iOS

Despite the move to digital and the flood of digital note-taking apps, there is never a shortage of digital sticky notes on almost any platform. There is, perhaps, something to be said about colored (mostly) square notes you can place almost anywhere on your screen. But while most sticky notes app, Windows 10’s included, have gone beyond some of the limitations of physical sticky notes, they’re often still stuck in one OS. Microsoft, however, might soon liberate its Sticky Notes so you can stick them on your chosen smartphone as well.

Windows 10 app makes Android photo transfer magic

Windows 10 app makes Android photo transfer magic

There's an app out for all users right this minute from Microsoft called "Your Phone." This app allows the user to get photos snapped on a phone over to their PC with the greatest of ease. The fact that this app even has to exist should be fairly embarrassing for someone in the smartphone development process ... but so far nobody's stepped forward in shame.

Snapdragon 850 for Windows 10 on ARM is already in trouble

Snapdragon 850 for Windows 10 on ARM is already in trouble

While the idea definitely had lots of appeal, Microsoft’s Windows 10 on ARM, specifically on Snapdragon, fell flat on its face during its first generation. It was largely attributed to performance problems which was, in turn, attributed to the not-so-recent Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 used in that first batch. Back in June, Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 850 that would fix that mistake. Benchmark sightings, however, aren’t exactly encouraging.

Microsoft Your Phone app available already on Windows 10 version 1803

Microsoft Your Phone app available already on Windows 10 version 1803

Microsoft has been giving Insiders a foretaste of features and changes that are coming in the next Windows 10 version. Naturally, it is presumed that those features won’t actually be arriving until that version rolls out later this year. That was definitely the presumption for the “Your Phone” app that promises a seamless connection between Windows 10 and, at least initially, Android smartphones. It turns out, though, that the app is now generally available to all, even on the current 1803 version of Windows 10.

Chromebooks dual-booting Windows 10 is a terrible idea

Chromebooks dual-booting Windows 10 is a terrible idea

After years of being ignored, if not ridiculed, Chromebooks are slowly becoming more interesting and more appealing. Chrome OS, combined with Android and Linux, is transforming into a platform that can make both Microsoft and Apple worry. All of that, however, might be for naught. Because come October, Chromebooks might be declared dead or at least on their way to becoming pointless. And that will be thanks to an admittedly appealing feature that will be introduced by none other than Google itself.

Chromebook Campfire could make or break Chrome OS with Windows 10

Chromebook Campfire could make or break Chrome OS with Windows 10

There's an "Alt OS mode" coming to Chrome OS on Chromebooks, and it seems that it'll be activated soon. In the code mix is the name Campfire, what can only be described as a clever call-out to Apple computers' Boot Camp. That part of an Apple Computer allows the user to run Windows if they do so choose - making the MacBook appear to be the dominant figure in the relationship. Now Google's considering the same thing, but for Chrome OS.
