Let’s face it: Windows 10 is a hodgepodge of garish tiles and goofy icons. It’s like a kid playing dress-up on costume day.
On the one hand, Microsoft has made substantive improvements to the operating system. Windows 10 is spunky, nimble and secure. And it’s so amazing Microsoft skipped over 9 so everyone would forget about all the deprecating thoughts we held about Windows 8.
But on the other hand it’s still hard to get around. Where do you go to get things done? Google? Yes, but today I wanted to show you 6 tricks, actually 6 shortcuts, that can improve your experiencing as you go clicking through the labyrinth known as Windows 10. Most of these shorties also work in older versions of Windows but I included them anyway because… well I can do that since I’m the one blogging right? haha.
When you walk into a T-Mobile store or apply for a cellular plan online or over the phone, T-Mobile runs a credit check on to make sure you’re good for repayment. But here’s the big news: if you applied between September 1st 2013 and September 16th 2015 you may have had your personal identifiable information… stolen.
Well today I want you to know about a few privacy issues that most people aren’t paying attention to.
Earlier this week I published two 10 minute YouTube videos about some glaring privacy issues. You absolutely need to know about this. I want you to know what you’re getting into before you click the upgrade button.
In the first video I walk through a Windows 10 installation and zero in on the equivocal language Microsoft puts in the setup screen. There are a bunch of settings turned on by default that could seriously put your privacy at risk. Please watch my demonstration below and then leave a comment. I want to know if I’m the only one who thinks these default options are ludicrous.
In my second video I give you 4 tips for regaining control of your privacy and getting Microsoft off your back. Check it out and leave a comment!
Incidentally, I’m still adjusting to the change of life here in Virginia. I won’t be updating the site as often as I have for the past year or so because I need to rearrange some priorities. Right now, my main goal is to finish and launch my much anticipated Windows eBook and then work on creating high quality videos for you guys. I appreciate you coming to my site, signing up to my list and remaining a loyal fan! Don’t worry – I haven’t forgotten about you. Even though updates will be less frequent just realize it’s because I’m gearing up to bring you even better content.
