Re: Whatís New in Windows 10ís October 2018 Update

Thanks Omah, following your post I've found notebook and wrote this mornings blog using it. I can see the simplicity of it, not having the many distractions that 'Word' contains, and I enjoyed using it. However, unlike word, it doesn't automatically start a new line so you can write off the page (so to speak) which becomes a problem when copying and pasting.


I became a victim of Microsoft Works when I found that it couldn't be read on windows 7. I became quite an expert at making data bases and had lots of files in works, so using Vista on my desk top computer, I had to convert many works files into excel, there are still some that need converting.

If you select Format/Word Wrap, Notepad will move the current word to a new line when end of line is reached.

However, this is only a visual aid and the line will revert to single on transfer to Word BUT Word will insert "new line" as appropriate .

Update on Desktop complete.

I did get a message saying directory "Documents" not found but that appears to have resolved itself.

ETA :

https://www.zdnet.com/article/window...river-warning/

As noted by one Windows 10 user on Twitter, documents saved in the user directory and not OneDrive will be deleted.

"So if your 'Documents' or 'Pictures' don't have a OneDrive symbol, MIGRATE IMMEDIATELY."

Re: Whatís New in Windows 10ís October 2018 Update

I have not read anything here that would interest me in the least. I never use Notepad or Paint, for example, having superior third party tools. The only such things I do use are the Snipping Tool and Character Map.

If there was anything of particularly useful value in the Windows Updates, I'd be happy to accept them, but I have yet to see them.

The most annoying thing, though, is the fact that these updates are both obligatory and, in my experience, problematic.

I've got superior third party tools, too, but sometimes all I want is simple and effective .....
