Latest finding re: win10

Found that I can change the font size per window. I keep Skoolies set at 150% zoom so it's easier to read. I have to drop my game site King.com down to 100% for it to fit the screen.

Win7 I had to change the font each time I went from one window to the next. With Win10 I can permanently set up each independently.

I also learned yesterday that I can write on my screen. Unfortunately I don't have a touch screen so my handwriting with the mouse reminds me of my days years ago learning how to write my name on an etch-a-sketch. At least I can just choose to erase it and don't have to turn my laptop upside down & shake it

Each & every day I find something new that I'm really liking.

Expect lots of updates in the next few months. I'm still getting updates to my win7 system 4 years after it's launch.

Android gets constant software updates that do nothing but bog the system down. Osx gets hardly any because apple gets it right first time.

It sure worked out great for the jews under that tyranny didn't it?

There are multiple examples where mass surveillance/control have resulted tyranny and genocide.

While you may be a good hearted person who has no will to dominate and dehumanize your fellow humans, there are those who will stop at nothing to attain total control.

What other purpose could such a system serve? The only logical conclusion is that this control grid is designed as a system of total control. Whistleblower and former Technical Director at NSA William Binny has said as much on multiple occasions.

Windows 10 is a giant trojan horse system. Are you aware that the entire contents of your hard drive will be uploaded to microsoft's cloud? Do you trust that there will never be a breach of this system? Are you ok with the entire contents of your computer being available on the internet?

We must all oppose widows 10 and our loss of freedom through the elimination of our privacy. The 4th amendment is still the law of the land despite some faulty court opinions. It was the courts opinion that blacks could be held as slaves and that those who performed poorly in school could be forcibly sterilized. Their OPINIONS on law are just opinions. Only congress can make law and it must adhere to our Declaration of Independence and Constitution including the bill of rights.

Not really. I wasn't familiar with this "law" but after reading the provided wiki I see that the rule does not apply to what was said.

From wiki page;
'The law and its corollaries would not apply to discussions covering known mainstays of Nazi Germany such as genocide, eugenics, or racial superiority, nor, more debatably, to a discussion of other totalitarian regimes or ideologies'

Is a surveillance state not a mainstay of Nazi Germany?

If you don't care about this thats fine but at least understand what is being done with your data. Trust Microsoft and the government at you own peril.

Since I took the plunge to upgrade to Win10 I decided this was a good time to upgrade my PC too.

My old Gateway is only 5 years old and has had a rough life. We actually had to bring her back from the dead a few years ago and she just hasn't been the same since.

We've gotten along fine, I can handle slow (don't we all get that way as we get older?). I hated or should I say have always wanted a backlit keyboard so when this HP 17 in with 1T of storage came up as a "todays special" I jumped on it.

I was sooooooo tired of having to shine a light on her or tilt the screen to see what I'm typing. Along with the wireless mouse I picked up I'm in love.
