The settings are laid out pretty much the same as they were.  They have tweaked how large DPI is handled and also I have a new monitor so it now appears as a column instead of a grid on my screen, but otherwise looks similar enough.
 
Mostly the whole things looks similar to how it looked before with a few tweaks here and there and some things work better and some have new features.  Cortana for instance has new features which I can't comment too much on as to be honest I never really use it :)
 
You can apparently get Cortana to show notifications from your Android device, which is nifty and you can reply to text messages and things, although apparently it's not compatible with my phone (it's fairly old - another reason for me to get a new phone!) so I can't test it directly just now.

Hi Quentin,
Thank you so very much. I have been wondering what changes we will have in the new build. I like how the start area sounds being able to use first letter navigation to get through the all apps, and having three columns in the start area. Is the settings app laid out pretty much the same, or does the settings app have new categories, sub categories with in each category and so on?
Thanks a lot, and I am really excited for next week.

Hi Steve,
 
To be honest, one of the biggest changes I have found, is that the start menu is now three columns wide.  The left column has user account / file explorer / settings / power, the middle column has recent apps then all apps (first letter navigation jumps straight to first app of that letter in full apps list), and the right column has the windows 8 style tiles.  You can still only pin to the right column but at least you can press the context menu to get recent files for any program there now which is nice.
 
What annoys me is that to shut down from here involves:
1. Windows
2. tab (takes you to the left column first, if you'd press down arrow you'd have started moving down the middle app list column).
3. down arrow four times.
4. enter
5. down arrow
6. enter.
 
If you want to do it quicker, you can press WINDOWS+X , press U then U again, or windows+m to go to desktop then alt+f4, or just press the power button on your machine (I know that last one is easiest of all, I've just never got into the habit of doing it as that used to be strongly avoided due to data loss :)
 
There's a new dark mode which you can get to without a registry hack now which affects mostly just settings but does make it a bit easier for some.
 
Regards
 
Quentin.

The easiest way for me to shut down is to go to the desktop, hit alt F-4 and hit enter. I also like the windows X, u and u keystroke too. It's similar to how you'd shut down in windows XP.

Hi, Quentin,

The easiest way for me to shut down is to go to the desktop, hit alt F-4 and hit enter. I also like the windows X, u and u keystroke too. It's similar to how you'd shut down in windows XP.

Hi Steve,

To be honest, one of the biggest changes I have found, is that the start menu is now three columns wide.  The left column has user account / file explorer / settings / power, the middle column has recent apps then all apps (first letter navigation jumps straight to first app of that letter in full apps list), and the right column has the windows 8 style tiles.  You can still only pin to the right column but at least you can press the context menu to get recent files for any program there now which is nice.

What annoys me is that to shut down from here involves:
1. Windows
2. tab (takes you to the left column first, if you'd press down arrow you'd have started moving down the middle app list column).
3. down arrow four times.
4. enter
5. down arrow
6. enter.

If you want to do it quicker, you can press WINDOWS+X , press U then U again, or windows+m to go to desktop then alt+f4, or just press the power button on your machine (I know that last one is easiest of all, I've just never got into the habit of doing it as that used to be strongly avoided due to data loss :)

There's a new dark mode which you can get to without a registry hack now which affects mostly just settings but does make it a bit easier for some.

Regards

Quentin.

Hi Arlene,

Yes as you are doing now will work exactly the same in Windows 10.  It's only if you access shut down from the Start menu that it's in a different place.

Hi, I’d just go to the desktop then do alt f 4 that would shut off the computer. I usually do that and I’m on 7. So if I ended up with ten. I’d be able to shut down from the desktop?

Re: Windows 10 Anniversary Update

The settings are laid out pretty much the same as they were.  They have tweaked how large DPI is handled and also I have a new monitor so it now appears as a column instead of a grid on my screen, but otherwise looks similar enough.

Mostly the whole things looks similar to how it looked before with a few tweaks here and there and some things work better and some have new features.  Cortana for instance has new features which I can't comment too much on as to be honest I never really use it :)

You can apparently get Cortana to show notifications from your Android device, which is nifty and you can reply to text messages and things, although apparently it's not compatible with my phone (it's fairly old - another reason for me to get a new phone!) so I can't test it directly just now.

Hi Quentin,
Thank you so very much. I have been wondering what changes we will have in the new build. I like how the start area sounds being able to use first letter navigation to get through the all apps, and having three columns in the start area. Is the settings app laid out pretty much the same, or does the settings app have new categories, sub categories with in each category and so on?
Thanks a lot, and I am really excited for next week.

Hi Steve,
 
To be honest, one of the biggest changes I have found, is that the start menu is now three columns wide.  The left column has user account / file explorer / settings / power, the middle column has recent apps then all apps (first letter navigation jumps straight to first app of that letter in full apps list), and the right column has the windows 8 style tiles.  You can still only pin to the right column but at least you can press the context menu to get recent files for any program there now which is nice.
 
What annoys me is that to shut down from here involves:
1. Windows
2. tab (takes you to the left column first, if you'd press down arrow you'd have started moving down the middle app list column).
3. down arrow four times.
4. enter
5. down arrow
6. enter.
 
If you want to do it quicker, you can press WINDOWS+X , press U then U again, or windows+m to go to desktop then alt+f4, or just press the power button on your machine (I know that last one is easiest of all, I've just never got into the habit of doing it as that used to be strongly avoided due to data loss :)
 
There's a new dark mode which you can get to without a registry hack now which affects mostly just settings but does make it a bit easier for some.
 
Regards
 
Quentin.

Re: [NVDA pronouncing "County" as "Company" in address line

Peter,

 

Clever you! Thanks, that sorted everything out. So, now I understand that when say word excludes the punctuation it refers the substituted letters to the dictionary for pronunciation and hits the “co”  and thus speaks the letters rather than expanding the contraction.

 

Thanks to everyone for help with this!

 

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

Try replacing the upper case c with a lower  cae c in the replacement field.

Quentin,

 

I did not see your response when I was replying to Kevin just now. This explains the three dictionaries very clearly, thanks.

 

I have taken your advice and have included the dot after the Co. However, I found that when I am reading this sentence with control-right arrow (Word by word in other words!) the “Co.” is still being pronounced as: “company” followed by “dot quote”.

 

I’m almost there but would welcome any suggestions about covering the Say word issue. Is there another dictionary operating ?

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall
