  1. Soundscape + Minecraft Earth = Blind Friendly Minecraft

    Just trying out Minecraft Earth and I'm being reminded of the scavenger hunt I had at CSUN 2019. Microsoft, I think if you are able to implement both of these together, you may have a game changer plenty of pun intended.

  2. Can we give Microsoft Contacts and Microsoft Calendar their own Domains ?

    I can't export Microsoft Contacts and Microsoft Calendar as separate Web Launchers because they are bunched inside Outlook , can we give them their own domains like calendar.live.com and contacts.live.com ?

    I'm actually not going to use them at all if they are bunched inside Outlook like this , if they had their own domains , they could have easily rivaled Google Contacts and Google Calendar .

  4. Microsoft Edge print screen has unconventional option to close or dismiss

    The PRINT screen for Edge has an annoying format. The print dialog does NOT have a close button "X" in the upper right of the window. The user is forced to close an unwanted print dialog using a CANCEL button at the bottom of the dialog or window. Why is this frustrating?

    FIRST, it is unconventional. Most print dialogs have a close button at upper right of window. Microsoft apps use the backdoor under FILE to print, but the edge print option differs from the appearance of a Microsoft Application such as WORD.

    SECOND, it is easy for the user…

  12. Microsoft Edge and Photos on Linux

    I understand that making a DEB Package is downright frustrating and discouraging , when big companies are told about Linux , they go straight to making DEB Packages but there are very easy ways to port to Linux .

    If you just create a working Tarball made inside a Linux Environment and send it to the major Repository Maintainers , they can do the rest .

    The Major Repository Maintainers in the Linux World are openSUSE , Arch , Red Hat Enterprise , Linux Mint , Mageia , Debian , Solus and Ubuntu .

    If you want to reach out…

  14. increase the notification/system tray icons to at least 32 pixels option, its important for tray indicators,

    increase the notification/system tray icons to at least 32 pixels option, its important for tray indicators, for example processor and disk real time indicator, upload, download, indicator, antivirus indicator, keyscrambler indicator, cups lock indicator, etc, for years we are still stuck n 16px for tray icons and nobody cares, its too small for some people who wears eye glasses, i think to increase system tray icons to 32 pixels will be something inventive for the new windows os, if it will be possible to make this changes on windows 10 so better,
    this is very important, for some people, even…

  16. Bitlocker screen gives no indication that the eyesight impaired can use

    My customer has many eyesight impaired users, but they also use Bitlocker with PIN on startup. The Bitlocker screen doesn't give these users any indication that they are on the Bitlocker screen and need to enter their pin.
    The screen times out after a short while, so the user never knows where they are in the process if they forget to count after pressing the power button or the machine doesn't respond in the expected way.

  17. Please fix the taskbar issue

    Each time I click into a full screen game in certain areas, the task bar minimizes my game and automatically begins to type into a search bar. This issue is worse when navigating through webpages. Please add an update to fix this issue. This is causing alot of frustration when even doing simple webage navigation.

  20. "point to input" is active no matter where you point it when using on-screen keyboard.

    I am a muscular dystrophy patient. Only a small movement of the wrist.

    If you are using the on-screen keyboard, the input function is only enabled within the on-screen keyboard.

    Furthermore, make sure that "point to input" is active no matter where you point to it.

    For example, you can click on the taskbar icon, scroll the internet screen, move the on-screen keyboard, etc.
