  1. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. display options for dyslexic users

    I recommend that allowing users to change the background colour to allow those of us that read better with a different colour background or overlay. This is something that is missing on all internet browsers.

  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. With high-contrast black theme used, in Edge the YouTube player playback controls are on an opaque background

    When the new techniques for rendering web pages when using a high-contrast mode/theme in Windows 10 were introduced to Edge, this was a big improvement in terms how the pages were displayed in high-contrast mode.

    One of the websites that benefited was YouTube and its HTML5 video player in particular. In that HTML5 player, the background where the text and controls were situated became semi-transparent. That allowed good visibility for both the controls and text of the player in the foreground and for the image from the video in the background.

    Since October of 2017 however, the YouTube theme has…

  12. 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.

  13. 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!

  14. 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.

  19. Ransomeware and EDGE

    FLOTUS IQ comparison ad in EDGE led to a Ransomeware Attack Monday April 2, 2018 - the message included {Microsoft reporting that your computer has a problem) and BTW, I shouldn't have to spend so much time looking up where to report an obvious oversight by you folks - please do something about these parasitic rats who prey on people.

  20. Please consider adding ANIMAL WELFARE CHARITIES to your Microsoft Rewards program. I am a Dog Advocate. The animals NEED our help.

    Please consider adding ANIMAL WELFARE CHARITIES to your Microsoft Rewards program. The animals need our help worldwide.
    Offering rewards such as fast foods, etc. unfortunately, only contributes to continuing violence against animals, in slaughtering billions of animals. Stop and think how Microsoft Corporation can be a BIG VOICE for animals in need around the world. There are many, many animal welfare organization's you can list as rewards choices:
    SOI DOG FOUNDATION
    FREE KOREAN DOGS
    DUO DUO PROJECT
    INTERNATIONAL AID FOR KOREAN ANIMALS
    FIGHT DOG MEAT
    STOPPINGTHEDOGANDCATMEATTRADEWORLDWIDE.ORG
    PETA
    Thank you for all you CAN do to help our animal friends,
    Tammy …
