So, you know how to change the wallpaper in Windows 10.
But have you noticed something very odd, when you selected the deskyop background?
You know what I’m talking about. It’s the taskbar, it has changed its color, hasn’t it? Try opening the the Start Menu, do the tiles have the same color as well? It should, because Windows 10 will automatically personalize your theme for you, when you change the wallpaper. It chooses an accent colour based on your wallpaper’s. And yes, sometimes Windows 10 does pick an annoyingly flashy colour which is not easy on the eyes.
Don’t worry, if you don’t like it, or simply want to use a [...]
Notifications are something we have grown accustomed to on our devices today.
Gone are the days when we had to keep refreshing the screen to see if an email has arrived.
To be honest, web-mail hasn’t changed much, but you an of course use mail apps (like the built-in Outlook app in Windows 10) for notifications.

You may already be aware of my criticisms, from my previous articles, including where I recommended free/paid alternatives for the Windows 10 Start Menu.
The second most hated feature would be [...]
Microsoft’s latest promotional video in the 10 Reasons to Upgrade to Windows 10 campagin, feayures Action Center, Task View and Snap Assist.
I have been predicting for a few days now, that the multitasking features will be shown off, and gladly, I wasn’t wrong.
But I did expect Microsoft to feature Action Center in a separately video. Though it does make sense to feature it along side the other two multitasking options. Action Center does have access to several toggles and grants access to various system apps, thus helping users to quickly switch to the apps.
