sl in terminal
If you don't have it, standard sudo apt-get install sl, pacman -s sl, or whatever your distro use.
Fun fact - there's couple locomotives included with different parameters, go and discover!
If you are sitting on Windows you can always look at gif.
E: I was proven mistaken, you actually can run it on Windows 10 and it takes like 5 minutes to get it done.
How to get it to run -
10: Settings->update&security -> for developers -> turn developer mode on
20: Control panel ->programs->programs and features ->turn windows features On or Off ->Tick the Windows Subsystems for Linux
30:win+r or win+s -> bash
40: wait till it gets downloaded, create the admin account, get the pc to reset.
now you can start it with 'bash' as before
50: sudo apt-get install sl
e2: Also, if you are on Windows Insider Program you can get the SUSE instead of Ubuntu, if you so desire, by downloading OpenSUSE or SLES directly from the store instead of step 30 onwards.
It's my pleasure to finally, after a really long hiatus, the release of TranslucentTB's next version. It adds a couple of things that where long asked for, such as a fluent style option for the taskbar (on build 17134 of Windows) and fixed the ghost UWP apps that dynamic windows saw. (a pretty frequent problem)
It also increases the reliability of dynamic Dtart, and adds two new modes, dynamic Timeline and dynamic Cortana.
You can download it from the store here and read the release notes linked by the post for all the details.
Please close the older build of TranslucentTB before upgrading, as the migration from an event to a mutex to detect single instance causes a name conflict in the kernel object manager if the event is not destroyed before opening a mutex with the same name.
Feel free to drop a message on our Discord or create a GitHub issue if you have any problem.
I think it has potential but it is fairly barebones right now. It is also buggy - I found 3 bugs after playing with it for about 10 minutes.
I like the UI. I'm definitely keeping an eye on it. For now I'm sticking with 2Day.
There's a lot of apps that get the images off spotlight and just apply those without the buttons. I use Dynamic Theme, not because of the buttons (I don't mind ads, like at all), but because it automatically saves the images to my hard drive. Works nicely and can also do it to your desktop if you want.

It is forked version of 7zip but with windows 11 context menu support. You can checkout it's GitHub repo here.
If it is not showing option in context menu for some reason then you can try turning on Tools > Options > Settings > Show system menu and restarting file explorer should work.
Can I throw my app Hivemind in the ring as well? :) It has features, performance and animation smoothness that matches and even in some cases surpasses both clients.
It's still new however so might be some rough spots still, and the UI follows its own paradigm that you'll probably like or dislike, but give it a try!

Here is my game I recently published to the Xbox One via the Creator's Collection:
The WPDev subreddit is the place to get help with developing UWP apps (which is what you need to use to develop for the Xbox One Creator's Collection).
I'm working on a guide for building and publishing UWP for Xbox One, but I don't know how long it will take me to complete. There are a few gotchas, and Microsoft's documentation is a bit lacking in detail.
Hi u/ambassodortim, did you notice any patterns in the crash? Like, does it happen after any specific actions or a certain amount of time, or is it random? Also, how long has this specific issue has been going on?
Install the beta from here. If the crash happens in the beta, there should be an error message the next time you launch it. Take a pic of the error and send it to me. If it crashes and there's no error message, let me know. If the beta version doesn't crash at all, still let me know (though it honestly would be really unfortunate if it doesn't crash).
EDIT: I think I may have identified the issue. If you're getting this crash, install myTube Beta from here and wait for the 3.1.3 update this Wednesday or Thursday.
I recently added a caching mechanism to the app, which is constantly saving and deleting files from device storage as the app runs, sometimes dealing with up to 500 files at a time. The app is still works fine for me, and this caching has worked fine on PC & mobile for over 2 years in older versions of myTube, so I can't be 100% sure this is the cause. However, dealing with so many files at once seems like the exact kind of a thing a gaming console isn't really set up to handle.
MyTube as Picture in Picture Support works across all applications. If you want it for any streaming side (Netflix, Twitch, and so on) or website in general get either Monument Browser, a full featured UWP Browser or a bit simpler Compact View. Disclaimer: I am the developer of Compact View. All three only work on Creators Update or later since CompactView was introduced then.

edit: found the store link: https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9wzdncrfjbq6 . It is a universal app and can be installed on desktop and mobile Windows 10 versions.
Just a heads up, the mobile link will open all pushed webpages with Edge.
SearchWithMyBrowser can fix that. You can download it on GitHub or get it on the Windows Store for $1 if you feel like donating and/or want autoupdates (currently rewriting it from scratch to also redirect search engines when searching with Cortana).
It looks like Flipboard is still using the old Metro/modern interface rather than the newer UAP interface that apps are moving too. It likely hasn't been updated in forever. Their email is , I'd contact them to see if they are going to update to a Universal app anytime soon
Regarding sharing, you have to do the old Windows 8 way with the sharing charm. In the upper left is the three lines that bring down a dropdown menu, click that and press Share. This will bring up a menu on the right, where you can share the content too. On a default Windows install there is no way to share to clipboard, so if you pick Mail it will start a new email that has the link you can copy paste. If you want to save a step, you can install "Clipboard" app, which will add a clipboard option to the share screen

I'm the developer of Windows / Windows Phone app, Giant Bomb Video Thing. Unfortunately this means I have to discontinue the app because I have no way of protecting video content in my app. The other option is to use the embed player, but at that point you might as well just use the website.
Just open it up, go through the guided setup process and you are done. This isn't Win95 where you need to spend a week tweaking and installing stuff to get everything right.
>Do you guys have recommendations for any programs every Windows user should have?
This will greatly vary based on your use, but most things will be installed right out of the box. I recommend getting Readit, it is the best Reddit client on Windows.
>I heard that Windows 10 has things like privacy issues and automatic updates, how do I fix these?
During the initial setup, if you don't do the express setup you can adjust some settings. Once in Windows if you open the Settings panel, and select Privacy, then you can adjust some more settings. Most of what you read online is alarmist FUD.
As for automatic updates, I don't recommend you disable them, but if you go to Settings then Update and Security, you can adjust some settings. If you set it to notify you, it will give you a toast notification that updates are ready to install, just shut the computer down when you are done and it will install the updates then. If you postpone the updates, eventually it will force install them, and usually at the worst possible time.
>On that note, will I need antivirus/spyware/adware etc? I haven't used them on my Mac, but I rarely go to shady websites to begin with.
Windows Defender antivirus is built in and works great, no 3rd party needed. Between that and using common sense you will be fine. Some also recommend installing an adblock extension to prevent some potential malware.
Readit has the most features and a Nice UI. It has options for banners and flair icons and much more like RES settings data optimization and more features are coming.It's free but has adds and its 3.99 to remove ads, but its worth it.
Incase you want to try other reddit apps:
Reddify for Reddit

It does cost $4.99 ($5.80 CAD). For people who want to check it out there is a 24 hour free trial per /u/zenmn .
Thank god for this. I sincerely hope this makes it onto the X1. Spotify said they don't have any plans currently to bring Spotify to the Windows store (and by extension Xbox). Maybe this convinces them to make their own app for the platform. Here's hoping.
It's my favorite comic reader I have ever used and has opened every comic file I've thrown at it. It's a 'metro' app, so you can read comics in beautiful full screen. You can map the app to the folder you keep your comics and it'll display all your covers in a front page library which you can select from.
I highly recommend it.

Already there, dude :)
Here's my latest game: https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9mtp8951hqnc
Single build runs on Xbox One, Windows (PC/tablet), and Windows 10 Mobile.
There are a handful of very minor platform-dependent bits of code in the game. Off the top of my head:
There might be more things that I can't remember, but each of those has code basically like:
// do this
// do this
I found a few quirks with the Unity engine (I assume it's the engine, but it could be the UWP platform), such as the gamepad would work perfectly on PC, but not have focus on the Xbox. In these instances, I just fixed my code to take the Xbox into account.
So yeah, it's here!
I think myTube Beta might be the best, but the reason nobody makes desktop-focused YouTube apps is because desktop users are probably fine with the website
Halo 5: Forge is free within the Windows Store to all who have Windows 10. It allows you to build, play, and share maps/modes/prefabs created on both PC and Xbox. It also includes all of the dev-made maps and modes included in the Xbox version of Halo 5 (yes, this is full Halo 5 custom games on PC). There is no matchmaking, but something similar to a server browser is confirmed to be coming later this year. There is no cross-play between PC and Xbox at this time.
Here's the link to the store page where you can download it.
It might not be available yet, as its official release date is Thursday the 8th.
Make sure you meet the system requirements. Having the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607) ~~and a GPU with DirectX feature level 12~~ are common issues for people.
Edit: DirectX feature level 11 now works.
If you don't have Windows 10 version 1607, check for updates in Windows Update. If that doesn't work, click "Learn more" in Windows Update. That will take you to a page where you can download a tool to manually update your Windows 10 to the newest version. All it takes is 1 click within the tool, and your computer will update itself automatically.

Yes. I'm not sure if my favorite uBlock0 is available or not, but you can try AdBlockPlus now if you have the Anniversary Update installed. Open the link with Edge after updating the OS. You could also install it from Windows Store.

You can transfer the messages backup file to your PC and figure out ways to make it printable in a readable format. The figuring out part isn't difficult.
First update for ParkenDD, an app for viewing live data of the parking situation at public parking lots where there's open data available (mainly Germany/Europe for now).
source (currently 781,267 ± 23,144 Steam owers)
Standalone version is also available on GOG and Windows Store.
I doubt it, but MyTube! will probably get it. The dev is pretty active on various Reddit subs, simply a top-tier app.
It's a much, much better YouTube experience than the official app would ever dream of. Background music support and no ads!
I can assure you, the Expansion Pass says "Xbox One only" but to actually install Blizzard Mountain, you'll need to check all the DLC for FH3 in the store and install it manually.

You're fine and ready to go, and enjoy the slopes!

Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9WZDNCRFJBB1
This used to work with mobile. It isn't available to download anymore. Alot of us bought the Microsoft hardware for this for continuum. I assume this is what the comment was referring to
The compass in my 950XL is off 90 degrees (I look North and it thinks I'm looking West). Calibrating doesn't fix the issue. This has been an issue since the creators update. It is very frustrating because it messes up apps like Maps and Star Walk 2.
Every day I get a notification that my Microsoft account needs to be fixed for shared experiences. I click on it and I got to settings and nothing is wrong.
I can't update firmware on my Microsoft wireless display adapter.
Network Data no longer shows accurate data (everything is duplicated). Resetting the app doesn't help.
My old pinned websites now just open Bing searches with a garbled URL.
I have to restart my device almost daily because it eventually gets really hot and everything slows down. Most of the time I'm not doing anything with my phone when this happens.
If I am listening to music over Bluetooth it is really bad.
Bluetooth randomly turns back on by itself.
Bluetooth says it is on when it is really off (or vice versa).
Bluetooth says it is still connected to my car even though my car is off and in the parking lot when I'm at work.
Basically the whole Bluetooth stack is worse now than it has ever been (I didn't think that was possible).
Edit: There are more issues but these are the most annoying.
Forgot to mention that Edge likes to unload webpages on me all the time too. I stream audio off a website and after about 5 minutes it cuts out. When I turn my phone back on edge is reloading the website. Before the creators update I could listen all day and this wouldn't happen.
Also sometimes my screen fails to turn on. I turn my phone on and the screen stays black. My Windows Hello camera turns on but nothing else happens. (This has always been an issue thought it seems more common in the creators update.)
You might like to try Xodo Reader from the Windows Store. Use it as my regular PDF reader.
For editing PDFs, PDF Assistant Pro isn't too bad (Though the UX is probably more useful for Surface Pen users like myself :)

Thanks for the guide for my optimizer! :) btw. there is a web version of it too. The W10 version has more features though.
W10 app: https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9nblggh5f9gg
Web version: http://tool.swop.one/
On friday I will release a new version with a fair amount of new and useful features, so stay tuned.
Not sure if this helps but there is an app Dynamic Theme which basically allows you to choose spotlight/bing images as your lock screen background or you desktop background. However, unlike the windows spotlight you can't vote and chose what kind of images you want.
Right, apps doesn't support features will just get thrown out. Like, there's already 7zip fork, that supports the new context menu — https://github.com/M2Team/NanaZip (store: https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9N8G7TSCL18R)
Just look through the settings app, there's lots of useful stuff there (such as different wallpapers on multiple monitors 😉). Other than that you might prefer the taskbar at the top but there's not much beyond that. QuickLook replicates the macOS function where you press Space on a file to get a preview
This bug occurred to me multiple times too. For now, the best fix is to download Dynamic Theme from Windows Store and setting the lockscreen background to Windows Spotlight from the app. Maybe Microsoft will fix it in future, but this bug has been in Windows 10 since the release (at least for me)

Thanks. That's a very strange error message though. Would you happen to be in the Xbox Insider Program? Also, if you have a Windows 10 PC or phone, can you try a 360 video in myTube Beta (https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9wzdncrdt29j) on it and let me know if it works there?
EDIT: Forgot to mention 360 video requires the Creator's Update, so you'll just get a distorted video if you don't have the update on your PC.
It's open to anyone. Just have to find it through a URL since it isn't listed on the store.
Just "claim" as if it was a free games with gold. Next time you're on your console, it should be in your ready to install
I recently released my UWP app SonicWeb (https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9pfnxs8cbkhn) for Windows 10, but only for Desktop. I quickly realized that many of the people downloading windows store apps are the windows phone users this article mentions. A friendly community that is very thankful for new, good apps. Almost every mail with feedback contained the wish to release it as a windows phone app. Guess what I am working on at the moment.
In regard to the future of windows phones I think MS is working hard toward a fully unified Windows. Windows runs on many kinds of devices. Some of them are able to connect to the internet using cell networks. And some of them enable you to make phone calls. These are called windows phone devices today. Tomorrow they will be just another type of device a unified windows runs on. And if this strategy really works out, my UWP app will be ready.
Yes they do, and it is up to the developer to decide when and by how much and for how long.
When it's a popular app usually some news sites like WinBeta, WindowsCentral or MSPU will cover it otherwise there's often a featured collection in the Windows Store of apps that are on sale, OR you can use an app like Win Store Deals
It's third-party UWP app, but it's open-source and listed on official Telegram website, so it's safe.
It supports secret chats, voice / video messages and more that is not supported by Telegram Desktop app.
Telegram X isn't third-party app btw, it's completely official.
AB and AB+ were ported in time for the Anniversary Update, and can be found on this page https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/collections/edgeextensions/pc

Here are a couple touch friendly Steam curators which list a bunch of games that work with touch:
Also, don't forget about the Windows Store. I know it only has a fraction of the games available on Steam but there are some decent games and they should all be designed for touch.
Another option is to download an emulator from the Windows Store, I like Nesbox Emulator https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9nblggh3szfq and you can play hundreds of old school games with touch controls on the screen. You won't be able to play fast, action games but this works great for RPGs or strategy games that don't require precise input. One note is that Nesbox has a bug when you use a controller so keep that in mind, but if you are only using touch then it won't matter.
I would vote 'Cast' by David Catuhe. Also a UWP app on desktop/mobile but not sure on Continuum support though. I believe it also syncs all subscriptions, play progress in a podcast and settings these days.
What do you mean by "first party". Is there a company that owns the txt standard? Every text editor is a first party app.
There is an excellent txt editor and viewer though. NotepadX.
I recommend MPC-BE if you're using a mouse and keyboard or at least an IR based Media Center remote control (which MPC-BE supports as well). Otherwise look into Kodi for a Media Center type deal that is suitable for touchscreens.
If you want a Metro program, try the VLC one: https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9wzdncrfj3t0
For music I recommend Foobar2000 even though MPC-BE can play music files as well, its optimized for use as a video player more than a music player. AIMP if you want a skinned interface that resembles WinAMP. Other free ones are MusicBee, Dopamine, Clementine.
Not an ideal fix, but try this:
It's the Messaging + Skype preview, should hopefully at the very least get messaging up and running again!
I would be interested to see what happens if you received a text message though, or attempted to start an SMS from the People app.
Gonna chime in here and say Note Sphere. This is an impressive note taking app. It really does market itself so check it out. Free of course.
Edit: for those who will notice the IAP, these are voluntary donations only. No functionality is hidden behind a pay-wall.
Hmmm, it's definitely still on the Store so you won't risk ownership by uninstalling. However, whether or not you're able to reinstall is unknown.
Perhaps you could try installing myTube Beta from here and see if it works?
Hmmm, that error code page makes it sound like uninstalling and reinstalling would work. Perhaps you could try installing the beta version first, then try reinstalling the main app. If you're unable to reinstall it, at least you have the beta until it gets fixed.
He means the old Realtek control panel application is no longer bundled with the driver, it's been replaced by a new universal app that you have to download from the Microsoft Store
Just forget about the Telegram Desktop client and use Unigram, it's much prettier, has a dark theme, lots of options, is open-source, has responsive design and interactive native notifications with inline-reply and action-center support
It depenc a bit on what you are looking for if you just want to annotate PDF's you want something different then when you want to take meeting notes or lecture notes. (IMHO)
A full on notebook replacement:
Drawboard PDF ($9.99 right now on sell for $6.99)
A perfect PDF annotation App.
Xodo PDF Reader & Editor (Free)
I can not say much about this one since I have not used it yet.
I personally use OneNote to keep my Notes organized, school, work, life. I have Notebooks for everything. Each Semester I make a new notebook for school, each Client has their own notebook, and big projects in life have their own notebook too. (Yes I have a Notebook dedicated to my 2 year old)
I use Drawboard for reading long PDF's and highlighting. I tried using it for note taking in class but I always run out of space. I don't use it for meeting notes either since I sometimes have pictures or web links in them and I find OneNote more useful for that.
There is a way though, you could set a darker image for your Background, that way All apps list will be darker, giving you almost the result you wanted. Try something like this: link
Or you could use Dynamic Theme app https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9NBLGGH1ZBKW and set size of your picture to Fill, Fit, Stretch or Center on you Background, just like on PC Desktop!
>I want a burgundy pen and a burgundy mouse to match my goddamn burgundy type cover. Let me look like a burgundy god!
I never used Apple Dashboard myself but you describe the Windows Start menu and Cortana. You can always just typ calculations and conversion (or say them) into Cortana and there are several apps with live tiles for stocks MSN Money. I think MSN Money and Cortana sync your Stocks between them. While you are at it you can also put Cortana on your Androide Phone and sync reminders as well as notifications.
Countdown widgets Apps exist too. I like this one Upcoming Now
Your Start screen could look like this:
You can also add tiles for News, Reddit, Sports and other thinks.
I have a HP Photosmart. After I updated to Creators Update the scanner didn't worked anywhere.
I asked HP and they said to try to use the HP Smart app on the store and it worked. So you could try that.
MS made it in 8.1 days but then they gave up on it. So the tiles are based on the further distant ones in 8.1. Still works great if you do it right.
I listen to 50+ podcasts and I use Podcast+ Pro. I've posted this before:
> I love the ability to tag my podcasts and setup custom playlists. Plus it has a great driving mode.
> I tried Grover Pro and OneCast but missed the ability to tag my podcasts and setup custom playlists.
> Tagging podcasts in Podcast+ Pro is such a useful feature. For instance I subscribe to several podcasts from Twit so I've tagged them all as "Twit" this allows me to quickly view just the new episodes from Twit.
Look at android store, If I find an app I use like tumblr then I look it up on the store, download it and try it out.
App Developer Accounts through the store. For example you can look at this app scroll down and find the developer's name click and see of they have other app already created. It's how I found his clipboardX app and I enjoy it very much.
Not 100% complete, but the best list yet:
one notable item missing from the list I can think of is Adobe Photoshop Elements 15:
Power Golf and Bomberman '94 are both available for $2.49. At least, they are here in the US. Can't speak for international availability. There's far more PCE games on the Windows Store in Japan, but we at least got these two?
I've tested them on Win 10 and they work great. Haven't tried in Win 8, so I can't speak to that. They don't appear to be available for Xbox One, but they may support Windows Phone. At least, I hope they do, since they have giant obtrusive touchscreen controls (which can be turned off).
Xbox One can play music from your server with VLC:
VLC has been around for 15 years as a desktop application for Windows, Linux and Mac. It has since been released for all mobile platforms.
After Microsoft opened Xbox app store for all developers and xbox became part of UWP, VLC developers released the app for Xbox One as well.
We've just released our successful Hue app for Lifx. Now available for Windows 10, Windows Mobile and Xbox One.

Thanks. Well it involved a bit of a journey and some experimentation, which luckily I can cut out for you and you can skip to the good bit! :D
The icon pack is from Deviant Art.
To get them displayed correctly you need to use an app to configure it, then a "helper" app that runs all the time to manage the interactions - this means you can create a shortcut for almost anything. (There are lots of apps that do this function, however the one below is the only one I found that maintains transparencies.)
The main app is Better StartMenu - windows store link once you open that up there are links to the helper app and i'd recommend going through their site if you have any questions.
Be aware it can be a slightly tricky getting links to all the apps - especially windows store ones, but you should be able to figure it our from the FAQ. If not drop me a PM and I'll help out.
Oh, I didn't know, that they shut down their site. :o Well, I'm the developer of the other optimization app / site. So if you have W10, you can use the W10 rune optimizer (https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9nblggh5f9gg) or use the web version of it (http://tool.swop.one/)
Make sure you meet the system requirements. Having the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607) and a GPU with DirectX feature level 12 are common issues for people.
I'm working on adding this to Spatial Weather, but I'm a little curious as to exactly one would like to see on the lockscreen as far as detailed text goes. The weather for the next hour or more of a summary for the day going forward? There's three lines of text play with.
Easiest would be just upcoming weather within the next 3 hours, min-max temperature and amount of rain and descriptive wind speed... but I'm not sure that's optimal.
I'm also thinking about doing a persistent toast in the notification center that you can expand for an hourly view, might be useful to check the weather without unlocking. Unfortunately you can't pre-expand toasts otherwise i'd be even better

Edit: If you just look at hero photos (big photo notifications) any app that that gave photo notifications in TH2 should give that as its just a appearance change.
For Windows 10 users: There's 2 Factor Authenticator. Simple, to the point app. Syncs with your Microsoft Account, so if your device fails it'll still restore all your accounts thanks to OneDrive. Available for Windows 10 PCs, tablets, and phones.
Highly recommend for anyone on Windows 10.
Edit: That being said, I still highly encourage everyone to make sure they have backup codes saved somewhere safe! You can never be too careful.
I wrote an app that can resize a bunch of pictures so you can easily send them by mail. Unless you want to send them in the original resolution, that might work for you.
You can use Bing images as an alternative, or wpapp[SpotBright] to download Spotlight images.
Hm, the bot doesn't cooperate, here's the link for SpotBright: https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/spotbright/9nblggh5km22

Readit UWP (Universal Windows Platform) for Windows Mobile 10, Windows 10, Xbox one, etc.
There's also an incredibly good one for the older Windows phone 8.1.
It's best on phone, but the unified version for windows is getting better.

If you're on Windows 10 (or 8.1) and open to a third-party solution, I made an app called Achievement Art which I think is pretty useful for browsing unlocked achievements.
I'm a developper myself I just posted 2 days ago a new app called Parents Panel on Windows 10. sorry for the app promotion :D. I really like the Platform the ease of software development and the idea of developing one app for mobile tablet and PC. I am a Windows developer since 2002 I think. I tried XCode and it is like stone age compared to Visual Studio.
However, what matters at the end is how much do you get from your apps. It is still a large gap in this context between Windows and other platforms. Maybe if they get their 1 billion users things will change and then the store will be relevant.
I'll throw my tiny app DailyPic into the ring, feel free to test it out. Gives you more or less full access to everything you can imagine what can be done with the Bing daily wallpaper (and all of the past Bing wallpapers of the last 6 years!!)
Oblytile doesn't work on Windows 10, which was the way we used to do it on Windows 8. So far best way to do so is this
In short you need two applications. First you need snowy dune launcher . And the other app is Pin More, which is available in the app store . While snowy dune launcher is free, Pin More costs $2.99 if I'm not mistaken, I cant see the price after Ive purchased it. There is a trial available. It will let you pin 3 things (applications, websites, folders, documents) and be able to use them before you have to buy.
The way it works is that you use the launcher to create an app ID which you then send to pin more to create your custom start tile. You can set a wide, squared, tiny and large images for your custom tile. You then, create the tile and it appears in the start menu. The only problem with this method is that in order for the apps to open Pin More has to open first then open the desired app. While this is a fast action, the window for Pin More remains open in the background. The way to fix this, or rather work around it, is to make the taskbar not transparent and drag the Pin More window under the taskbar. The app must remain open like before and will open before the desire app, but you will not see the window in the way.
I'm sure we will see the next Oblytile for windows 10, but in the meantime this seems to be the best option.
You can install Window Subsystem for Linux and if you use the Ubuntu base image just install with sudo apt install clustalo
sudo apt install clustalo
I've built a few computers recently and ran into this issue.
Apparently, it's been migrated to a Windows Store app. It's supposed to auto install when you install a driver update through GeForce Experience, but it didn't for me, with the recent drivers. But you can install it manually, which worked for me.
More info from Nvidia.
TL;DR: Install the control panel from the Windows App Store.

If I recall correctly, you first have to install the ROG Aura Component, and only then the ROG Aura software from the windows store. Since your laptop has the per-key RGB, this is the correct software: https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9nqh3p2dzffn
I had the same thing happen on my new GL504 (also $2000 machine), they should be really more specific about it, it's way too much money for such issues.
I've found some instructions for your model here: https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1036500/ It should work if you install the correct software (not core).
Let me know how it goes.
Check out alternatives to the native player like MyPodcasts (which supports PC + Xbox as well) and Podcast+ Pro. Most 3rd party apps pull from the iTunes directory (unlike the native app). So you'll have better luck finding the shows you want. And most are either free or have an unlimited free trial of some sort.
Spotify also supports podcasts now but their app has always been buggy on Windows Phone.
Full Disclosure: I made MyPodcasts.
The app was renamed about a month ago due to some certification issues. Look for TMX in your installed apps/store if you still can't find it you can use this link: https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9NBLGGH3ZWTF from edge
Hi! Sorry to hear that! You mind installing myTube Beta from here, and then letting me know if it works for you? The recent update fixed a bug that could cause a crash during sign-in.
I noticed this too, The only way to get around those Ads is to install a Windows 10 App called Unstream, Its a Twitch streaming app that can bypass all the adverts.
So if you don't want to deal with all the ads that show up on a stream, just use that app, you can log into your account, check on the channels that you follow or any other stream, I think this is 10x better then the official Twitch Desktop app, which also plays Ads.
So you have a choice. :)
You can get SUSE on Bash on Windows now too, to be fair.
Please tell me if this works. Damn, it's possible that it's only for Germany or something, in which case I'd have to apologize for being a cocktease because the app is very good...
The Web App is something completely different and I was about to question you sanity for using it with the Pen :D. It is by a different developer and every thing. I Love using OneNote for everything, especially school related and can only recommend it.
If you want to keep your current work flow I can recommend InkPaint and use the export feature to export as png
You could try setting it as one of you pen shortcuts.
