MS has made an announcement stating that AI (Windows Copilot) is to become part of their new OS, just like Edge and their Office apps (also to have their own AI assistants). You can read more at the article linked. I'm thinking maybe call it Clippy AI-nstein? What could possibly go wrong?

For whatever reason, databases become corrupted. In Windows File Explorer, the thumbnails displayed are a convenient link to files you've been working on, recently. When the database becomes corrupted, these pictures display incorrectly. Hankers forwarded me the link to this article on Windows Central which describes 3 ways to fix the problem and recreate the information using the Disk Cleanup legacy tool and Command Prompt. Not going to scrape the article (linked above) which is e...

Was cruising and saw this summary (on Neowin) of what you can expect in W11's Moment 3. There appear to be some good changes, but as in the case of widgets, they don't go far enough: They sadly won't be enabled for use on the desktop.  There'll be more "Recommended for you" links stuck on the start menu, so get Stardock's Start11, and remain the boss of your start menu. Head to the linked article for the article, and screenies...and have a good day, people!

Greetings! In recent years, "Early Access" has meant "Game is basically done but with bugs". And while it's true that the engine for this game is pretty "done" we are trying to take advantage of early access to try out a lot of crazy new things to get your ideas and feedback on. GalCiv IV: Supernova is being developed by the GalCiv II team and so some of the changes the team wants to make are things that come from the things we really liked in GalCiv II but in a GalCiv IV game. Some of ...

Found a nifty, free utility which does just about everything paid utilities do, for free. It even has a light and dark theme. It's for use with W11.  I put together a composite of the available screens in the utility, below (numbered 1-6). As you can see, it offers quite a bit for a free utility, available in the Microsoft Store. I have to say, I'm impressed. You also have the possibility of changing the settings and offering feedback to the developer from inside each screen. &nbs...

This surfaced this morning...from Gizchina: If true, W12 will be many new features. The taskbar, Start menu, explorer...all revolutionary. The dynamic dark mode looks gorgeous.  To be clear, MS hasn't confirmed anything, and this is a concept video, but: "The highly reputable concept creator, Addy Visuals has come up with something new that shows how Windows 12 will look like, and it’s stunning. This same concept creator has a long standing hist...

Earlier this week, some coworkers and I piled into a couple of cars and drove out to Ann Arbor for a showcase of games created by students from the University of Michigan (UM) and Eastern Michigan University (EMU). They throw this showcase twice a year at the end of their semesters and it’s a fun way to meet people who are passionate about games and all of the work that goes into making them. I went last December and had a fantastic time, so I was excited to get to go again. Back r...
