Windows 11 Photos app gets a redesigned editor with new update

Visual Studio Code, PSPad. If you're working with large text files, both are a better option.
Good to know. Thanks.
Windows 11’s Alt+Tab is getting design changes in Sun Valley 2

Don't worry about hardware compatibility on Win 11. Yes it's a pain if your hardware doesn't meet the standard.
However when it does after you do some upgrades (more expense) you will be happy to know that even though it didn't support some of your hardware it still supports floppy discs
I pity anyone that requires the use of them. I removed my floppy drive when I found it would no longer read any of the disks I had. They don't seem to last more than a couple of years before they become unreadable. I just searched to see if you can even still buy the disks. I see that Amazon has them and they cost about $30 (U.S.) for a box of 10, making them about $3 each. That same price (for the box of 10) will get you a 1 TB flash drive.
I had to look up online what a floppy disk could hold. The most advanced one is 240 MB? omg.
But when I ran Windows 11, I could enable CSM for legacy devices in the BIOS and then theoretically at least, could run floppy disks (in an unguarded moment).
Sounds more like a zip drive disk? Standard floppy disks were 1.44 MB with 1.38 MB of usable space after formatting. At least the 3.5 inch were. The 5.25 were even less.
Well, this is the source I got that from--it's under the 3-inch section near the bottom. Unreal how things have evolved.
The 240MB floppy is for the SuperDisk, which was released in 1997.
Same company that made the Zip and Jazz disks. I think they all required proprietary drivers and patented disks so I'm not going to count them as standard floppy disks.
Windows 11 OS Struggles To Crack 1 Percent – Lansweeper
I'm hoping it's just me but I just finished installing Dev build 22538. The taskbar tray looks terrible. The alignment doesn't match and the little chevron on the right shows a tootip that says "show hidden icons" but clicking it does nothing.
Living life on the edge lol.
it looks hideous. what were the designers thinking?
i hope it's just a bug.
Anyone here on the beta channel by chance? How is it running for you?
Have they split the beta channel from release preview? They have been the same for a while and I am unaware that anything has changed lately.
No idea to be honest. Have not tested an insider build in awhile.
MS has finally resolved (by optional update KB5010793) the nasty bug that was crippling VPN to such an extent that it was unusable.
Is that for Windows 10? For 11 I got this one. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us...-of-band-2d2b9310-d845-41c4-9907-aeea24f36a63
Right, I'm on Win 10. This bug plagued me heavily as I couldn't work on my office stuff.
Got you. I was only asking since this is a Windows 11 thread.
Yeah, my bad, sorry I thought I'm in Win 10 thread :-/
