  1. Allow setting for Surface pen so that if I want to use it to write in web browser I can write without having to hold the button down.

    If I want to write on something within the browser (like to grade an online assignment), I have to hold the button down, since the default pen function is to use it to scroll. Can there be an option where we decide which function (scroll or write) is the default? It's almost impossible to write or draw while holding down the button.

  4. Select specific spot to read in edge

    Users should be able to highlight any text in Edge and have it read to them at that spot and not have to start at the beginning each time.

  5. Narrator + Edge in Win 1809 seems unable to cope with websites in different languages

    When browsing the web on Edge with Narrator on Win 1809, and one navigates on a page authored in any other language than the one set for Narrator's synthesizer, Narrator will not switch to the correct language synthesizer but will attempt to pronounce the content in the default synthesizer, which will make the content unintelligible. This seems a rather basic feature. Am I missing a setting, or something, to make it work? NVDA, for instance, switches between languages smoothly as one browses through multilingual content with the correct lang attributes set.

  6. Return to Windows Live Mail

    Windows 10 deleted Windows Live Mail and downloaded something that never works and has no features. It eats up your hard drive with updates and stops working at will. The tech that downloaded it . Took seven hours trying to figure it out. and never did. Hardly spoke English! Microsoft email is a joke! Their flash player leaves a lot to be desired as well. My next computer will be an APPLE!!! So much better and it works!

  7. Have Screen Readers not read "blank" on role="presentation" or aria-hidden="true" SVG Elements

    At the moment, when JAWS or NVDA with Edge, you have no way of fully ignoring an SVG. The screen reader will always read "graphic," unless you enable role="presentation" or aria-hidden="true," in which case it will read "blank."

    If you add an aria-label to a parent div, that label will be reread multiple times depending on how many SVG elements and <text> elements are contained within that div.

  9. Regarding Cortana -

    It would be very good of you could get Cortana to be more like a "sophia" AI, to be able to hold intelligent conversations and responses.
    Further more, after Cortana tells a Joke, a pun, or sings a song, etc. Leave the mic on and leave Corrana LISTENING for a Response or Reply to whatever she just said, did, quoted, etc.
    Allow an actual conversation to take place. Let Cortana become more personal and more friend like to people.
    You might be asking what are the benefits? How would this benefit people?

    Well, in short, a quick answer;
    People whom…

  10. Make edge work with Dragon Naturally Speaking

    Many people rely on Dragon Naturally speaking to access there PC. Edge has no support for Dragon so is not usable, the only option is to revert to Internet Explorer.

    Either Edge needs to support Speech recognition programs or Internet Explorer needs to continue to be supported. Otherwise a community of people will not be able to use MS products to access the internet.

  11. Narrator in browsers

    Hey, I'm using Windows narrator and the Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge browser. So when I start the browser and navigate to the address bar or the search bar or anywhere and want to type anything it says "unavailable" every time I want to type a character, so I can't type anything. Why's that and what can I do against this?

  13. Sticky Note Problems

    I used sticky notes on a daily basis on a different computer (the notes stayed on my desktop all the time with notes) and loved it
    On the computer I am currently on ( Windows 10) sticky notes 2.1.18.0 I can not change the fonts or make the fonts larger, It is absolutely horrible and I hate it. I can not read anything on it. Can you please fix this problem so that I can use sticky notes again? I need it for school.
    I need the font size larger and i need different font styles. A.S.A.P.
    The sticky notes…

  14. Enable Reading View on the public web page which describes Reading View!

    On the web page which describes Reading View - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/17204/windows-10-take-your-reading-with-you - Reading View is not enabled. This seems almost cruel!

  15. Let there also be an option to make background for apps (including windows explorer) to be transluscent.

    If the background for for apps (including windows explorer) is transluscent (just like the light and dark modes) then it would show fade wallpaper in the background and it would look really cool.
    Also I think it's a really great idea.

    P.S. I couldn't find any category befitting my suggestion so I put it in Microsoft Edge category. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  16. Edge is always freezing. Please improve its performance. Please update this ASAP.

    Edge is always freezing. Please improve its performance. Please update this ASAP. I have had nothing but constant problems with Edge. The developers really need to make major improvements on it or go back and fix Internet Explorer, as I hardly have too many issues with it, but something desperately needs fixed in both. Thanks, Ed

  17. Add touch area for next and previous page for pdfs in Microsoft Edge

    For pdfs in Microsoft Edge, alongside swiping left and right for page navigation, there should also be touch areas at the edge of the screen to navigate back and forth between pages. The touch area can be a square down in the corners, or they could be defined as rectangles somewhere along the edge.

    E.g look at the Amazon kindle devices.

  18. Make visual focus indicator more prominent.

    Please make the visual focus indicator more prominent, the thin-dotted outline is barely visible especially against dark backgrounds. I have relatives with low-vision that I assist and it is incredibly frustrating for them. I wear glasses and my vision isn't that bad and in some instances, i can't see it either. Please please make it more prominent! Thank you!

  19. sticky notes is not disability friendly

    The sticky notes in the Microsoft Store are not disability friendly at all. It is so frustrating that many programs have been made without us in mind. It is such a shame. I am a college student and I cannot utilize a lot of things offered in the Microsoft Store. I am so disgusted my this.
