    It is always nice to see what will change (sometimes for the better) in a next major update of W-10. However those cosmetic updates are not necessary for me in using W-10 as an operating system. What I would like to see in a new version are p.e.: A simple switch to disable Defender totally from Firewall till virus and malware protection. A simple list of all apps delivered (for free) within Windows. This list should be in such a format that you can uninstall all the, unnecessary and unwanted windows shit FOREVER.

    One thing that continues to happen is Windows 10 has updates anywhere from two to four a year and yet they don’t tell the end users the changes they make on each iteration. You’d think they would send some sort of email that comes along with each major update noting the differences and how to use them, rather than just dumping them on us and letting us try to figure out what was done and how it effects the OS.

    Great article that summarizes the changes in the upcoming May updates. Hope there is an official article like this from Microsoft. At least have a Bill Gates’ seal “I approve this message!” 🙂

    All-in-All I felt Microsoft never knows where to focus their effort through all these years of development since Windows 3.0. Windows is an operating system, focus on it.

    It looked like they constantly wanted to get into application development, browsers, windows store and easy menu item re-allocation and color changing and call them “updates”. Keep them separate from the OS.

    May they know it all, just it is lot easier to take on these superficial change tasks than to make hard core improvements to the OS and normal users won’t understand any of the internal core improvements anyway.

    The Win 10 search function is remarkably bad. I have been using.Untrasearch and Wise jet search both of which do an excellent job. Hopefully, the update to Win 10 will finally result in a quality search function. I will do the update this evening and wait in excited anticipation.
