  • Win10 improvements in the last five years, based on Insider feedback

    The Windows Insider team just posted a fascinating list:

    As Windows Insiders your feedback has helped drive many changes over the years. From small fixes to big features, you’ve been a key part of helping us evolve Windows. In honor of our fifth anniversary year, we’re taking a moment to look back at some of our favorites.

    Here are the top picks:

    • Emoji, kaomoji & symbols. Meh.
    • OneDrive Files On-Demand. That was a Windows 8.1 feature, dropped in the first incarnation of Win10.
    • Cursor & pointer size and color. I guess there are a few more options than those we had in Win 3.1.
    • GPU performance in Task Manager. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    • Feedback Hub Collections. But Google still doesn’t index the Feedback Hub – and the Internet Archive doesn’t distill it.
    • Sticky Notes updates. Now there’s a real barn burner.

    Anyway, take a look at the best of the best and tell me what you think.
