Microsoft's Dona Sarkar will be joining us for the Windows Central Podcast
This week's podcast will have a special guest! Make sure to tune in.
If you're already not tuning into the Windows Central Podcast every week you now have a good reason to start. On Friday, April 14, at 2:30 PM ET (11:30 AM PT; 6:30 PM GMT; All Timezones) Zac Bowden and I will be joined by Dona Sarkar, chief of the Windows Insider Program (WIP) and #INSIDERS4GOOD advocate.
Many of you already follow Dona on Twitter (@DonaSarkar) and are enrolled in the Insider program, but today we'll be diving a bit deeper into how it all works. For thirty minutes, we'll be talking about refactoring, how the program works, how features get implemented (and cut) and more!
To watch the live podcast, simply bookmark our Beam or stream it on our YouTube. You can even now watch on your Xbox too.
- Follow Windows Central on Beam
- Watch the podcast on YouTube
- Check out the Xbox Community Calendar (opens in new tab)
As always, if you cannot make it we'll repost the mixed and finalized podcast sometime on Monday, April 17th where you can re-watch the video or listen to the audio through your favorite podcast app.
Finally, on a note about expectations. Ms. Sarkar's duties relate specifically to the Windows Insider Program as such, do not expect us to grill her for a half hour about unreleased hardware or unannounced features for Windows 10. Not only are those outside her purview but she would not be permitted to answer.
In the meantime, read about Dona and her history at Microsoft (opens in new tab) as a primer for tomorrow!

But on my three-monitor setup, I believe it launches on the last closed screen, I think it remembers until you reboot your machine or something. Would prefer it just launches on the 'active' screen.
I have several feedbacks for multi-monitors, upvote if you think it should be improved to make our live easier. Some of them are for your scenario where screens are not all next to each other to form a bigger desktop, and which needs better way to manage apps between connected monitors. - Show app on monitor it's been launched from: https://aka.ms/T1sb91
- Allow taskbar extensions on secondary taskbars : https://aka.ms/P76puu
- Show Action Center on monitor it's been called from : https://aka.ms/Ed95wu
- Enable Task View to move a window to the monitor it's been called from : https://aka.ms/A255gi
- Keep mouse cursor visible when using touch on multi-monitors : https://aka.ms/Uvxl79
- Make targetting size buttons of fullscreen apps in vertical multi monitors easier : https://aka.ms/Dakuyb
- Don't allow UWP apps to go fullscreen with no way to move them to another monitor : https://aka.ms/Vfisf3 We really need as many of the multi-monitors users to make their voice heard for this to get prioritized at some point, even more so for the few of us that are experimenting with multiple monitors that are not immediately next to each other.
And plz, no polite answers, just straight up vinegar on a wound.
