OT: Windows 10 tips?

I'm not here to bash windows. But, I really hate Windows. It now has
multiple desktop support, can I swap them conveniently like in Linux?
What is with these washed out title bars? I can't tell where the title bar
ends and the window begins? Hey, I can set the color of the title bar for
only the ACTIVE Window? What about the inactive?
Where is the start menu items? I have icons for things I can't remove
because the aren't installed.

I will have many more frustrations later as I encounter them.

=============================================================== From: Stephen Kraus ------------------------------------------------------ I love my Windows 10, but I can understand why it might frustrate you.

=============================================================== From: Chad Smith ------------------------------------------------------ Unkmar - you might like High Contrast Mode. https://winaero.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/Windows-10-high-contrast-mode.png https://winaero.com/blog/enable-high-contrast-mode-windows-10/ it's not as customizable as Linux obviously, but it's something. *- Chad W.

=============================================================== From: "Alex Smith (K4RNT)" ------------------------------------------------------ Also look into ClassicShell. " 'With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains us all irrevocably.' Those words were uttered by Judge Aaron Satie as wisdom and warning... The first time any man's freedom is trodden on, we=E2=80=99re al= l damaged." - Jean-Luc Picard, quoting Judge Aaron Satie, Star Trek: TNG episode "The Drumhead" - Alex Smith - Kent, Washington (metropolitan Seattle area) ast-mode.png ar

=============================================================== From: Michael Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ Just setup a Win10 laptop for someone. also boots Linux Mint with Cinnamon. Libre office, VLC, Gimp, Firefox and Chrome on both. Had to use CLI/cmd on Win10 to enable Guest user. WTF!?! And Win10 wants to identify users somehow within the Microsoft account ecosystem. Took extra steps to just have a Win10 local user not tied to accounts. (This laptop needs to be used by several people/roles at a church). So far, for the intended uses, Linux Mint is winning. They seem to like it and have no clue what it is.

=============================================================== From: Phil Sieg ------------------------------------------------------ I am reading this on a Lenovo laptop running Linux Mint/Cinnamon. FTW. Phil On Sun, Sep 9, 2018 at 12:09 PM, Michael Harrison wrote:

=============================================================== From: Stephen Kraus ------------------------------------------------------ Meh, I'm not a fan of Mint, and Linux/Unix will remain purely a server/development thing for me, Windows 10 is sufficient for my daily use/gaming/engineering work.
