9 laptop bags we legitimately love

Everybody needs a good laptop bag. These are Team Windows Central’s current favorites. A laptop without a good bag to tote it around is like toast without butter or jam; an ice cream sundae with no cherry; a margarita minus the tequila; a you get the point. Laptops are purposefully portable, but if you want to really get the most of your notebook PC, you need a quality bag to pair it with. Laptop bags aren’t simply about function, however. They’re expressions of individual style and personality. 9 laptop bags we legitimately love

Chime in: Are you confident in Microsoft’s future consumer strategy?

After Windows 8 and Windows 10’s both being fails, i am not confident with anything from Microsoft whatsoever.

 

Is Microsoft keeping up with the times? Microsoft has faced a fair share of criticism for its consumer-facing efforts, dropping products across several categories over recent years. With Windows Phone and Groove Music prime examples of products failing to resonate with consumers, the company is gaining a reputation for failing to support its long-term followers. While Microsoft is commended for many of its top products, others in its wide portfolio fall short of the competition. The Microsoft Edge browser misses notable features seen across Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, with several competitors overshadowing its market share. One Windows Central forum user drew attention to Edge’s downfalls, which led to them leaving the browser behind. Chime in: Are you confident in Microsoft’s future consumer strategy?

How to access XPS Viewer in the Windows 10 April 2018 Update

If you’re running the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, this is how you can get back support for XPS files. XPS is a file format that Microsoft created to print content to a file very similar to PDF. It was originally introduced with Windows Vista, and even though it never really gained popularity it continued to ship with Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10. Now, starting with the April 2018 Update (version 1803), Microsoft is finally retiring support for the file format and removing the XPS Viewer app on new installations. This means that if you’re doing an in-place upgrade from version 1709 (Fall Creators Update) to version 1803, you’ll continue to have support for the format, but if you’re setting up a new device, or do a clean installation, the XPS Viewer app will no longer be available. If you’re among those people who still use XPS files, and you can no longer find the app, you can get the XPS Viewer back using the Settings app. How to access XPS Viewer in the Windows 10 April 2018 Update
