    For me file explorer is the big thing. It's look needs to tie in with the app windows cos in windows 10 it feels like you are using 2 different devices. File explorer needs to be cleaner and more efficient with more customizable options and ways to easily navigate to recent places. But great job Windows team. Amazing work.

    Well if that's his idea of beautiful, I'd hate to see his life partner - cause this thing is plain and dull looking. Oh and we are tracking you now more than ever. You can have completely different desktop looks depending on what you are doing - so that we always know what you are doing... Just another way they are tracking you now. As for the games, well they kind of have to make them available to all platforms, cause they clearly can't get the XBox Series X to you any time soon. lol

Then, I'll turn on dark mode, but only if they fixed the context menu. LOL I hope they didn't mess with Magnifier. Everything I saw on this video looks bloody hard for sight impaired users to access.
