7 things we want to see in Windows 10 Redstone 3

Now that the Windows 10 Creators Update (Redstone 2) is old news, we're beginning to turn our attention to Redstone 3, Microsoft's next-next major update to Windows 10 coming in the fall of this year. We know basically nothing about it at this point, apart from the fact that it'll probably house a number of delayed features that were supposed to show up in the Creators Update, like MyPeople.

So without further ado, this is our wish list for Windows 10 Redstone 3.

MyPeople

This is an obvious one, but only because Microsoft announced it as a feature for the Creators Update, but had to push it back at the last minute. MyPeople was, in my opinion, the most exciting "for everyone" thing that was supposed to arrive with the Creators Update, so I'd definitely like to see it show up in Redstone 3. Perhaps it'll be able to hook into third-party services too?

Project NEON

Another super obvious one, but I'd like to start seeing more Project NEON elements being used system-wide with Redstone 3. We've seen the concept shots, NEON looks good, and I can't wait to start seeing that show up in my taskbar, Start Menu and more. Will that all arrive in Redstone 3? We can only hope, although I think Microsoft may be planning to wait for CShell before any major redesigns to system elements takes place.

CShell (Mobile)

Speaking of CShell, I'm hoping we'll see CShell show up for Mobile with Redstone 3. This will bring a familiar desktop experience to Continuum, as well as improve upon the phone experience itself by introducing more similarities between the Start experience on desktop and the Start experience on phone. It's unclear if CShell will be available to existing handsets or new ones, however. We'll have to wait and see.

Landscape mode (Mobile)

I'd like Microsoft to finally add some kind of landscape mode to the Start Screen, as this is probably one of the most requested features from Insiders. It'll be incredibly beneficial on bigger devices like the HP Elite x3 or Lumia 950 XL, where using your phone in landscape mode makes sense. Perhaps with CShell, this is something they'll consider implementing, finally.

Better feature parity between Mobile and Desktop

The fact that Night Light isn't part of the Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update really grinds my gears, but only because this is supposed to be "One Windows". It's incredibly frustrating when features show up on desktop but not on Mobile, and Night Light was one of those features that just make sense coming to Mobile. I'd like to see more feature parity between Mobile and Desktop with Redstone 3, and they can start by bringing Night Light to Mobile users.

Floating Cortana

This is a feature that was rumored to be in the works for Redstone 2, but didn't make the cut. Microsoft looked at making Cortana more contextual, for example when in an Office document, Cortana could float up on screen and offer you images, excerpts from other documents and more without you needing to open File Explorer and digging for what you need. A smarter Cortana would be an excellent edition for Redstone 3.

Smarter notifications

If you're using the same UWP device on both Mobile and Desktop, you'll get double notifications on your desktop — one from the app on your PC and another synced from that same app on your phone. It's annoying, and while it's something you can tweak via Cortana, I'd like notifications to automatically know if they should sync to avoid this, and display only on the device I'm using at that time.

  • I want to see a revamp of notifications syncing. The notifications from my phone should not be grouped under my phone but should be grouped under their respective app. This will allow us to configure banners and sound settings etc. on per app rather than the entire phone. I have to disable banners for all notifications from my phone just because of this issue. Also, where is universal dismiss? It really never worked for me.
  • Maybe I'm not quite understanding what you're refering to but you can already edit notofications on the app level. In the notifications&actions section, when you scroll to the apps list and select an app it allows you to edit in there.
  • I think they are referring to the notifications which get synced to your pc via your phone. I believe those all show up under a Phone heading rather than under specific app...
  • Exactly
  • They show like that only if you don't have same app on PC. If you have an app only on mobile, you get notification as my phone. If you have same UWP app installed on both mobile and PC, than notifications shows separated. When you tap or click on that notification, on PC or mobile, it disappears on other device.
  • but that is partly the point. I don't have Skype for Business on my personal PC yet because it is on my Phone I still get the notifications on my PC. was frustrating when it first started happening, and if you click the notification it takes you the Store to install the app. Needs cleaned up!
  • For example, I have telegram installed on my phone. It's an 8.1 app for 10. So my PC, which has the 32 bit version installed, gets windows mobile notifications from telegram, but if you click on them, it takes you to the store page and declared that the app is mobile-only. It's infuriating. Readit is the pinnacle of UWP apps, being able to pick up your phone and launch the link to your PC, or answer universal notifications anywhere. It's also scalable.
  • MyPeople is a flawed idea. To start with, on pocketable devices there is no task bar.
  • Pocketable devices with Windows don't sell anyway. 400 million PC users would like to enjoy this feature though. Not to mention that it Microsoft finally implemented actionable live tiles those could be used for that purpose on Mobile. And there are different ideas from other systems, like chat heads on Android.
  • 400 million,. how can you be so sure? it sounds like it will be useful to a moniority, just like Cortan is and a floating cortana?? oh good grief. i killed Cortana as it is, it would annoy me if it popped up when i am doing something.  Tiles are another useless feature on a desktop, it was bad enough on Windows 8 anmd now MS moved them to a start menu, get rid of til,es and go back tot he old style menu./  
  • Agree, I turned off Cortana as step one. After that I removed all the tiles from the start menu. I would like them to allow me to set what browser launches with start menu searches. I use edgedeflector to circumvent edge right now. I shouldn't have to though. Let me delete edge too... And all the built in stuff I don't want, without having to PowerShell all the crap out of my system... Looking the you groove music(aka zune)
  • Wow, would be easier to just go back to XP.
  • Or 3.1 😉
  • Just because we do not like the spy crap and the cloud vision of MS?  
  • This is the problem, why should we have to use powershell to get rid of stuff we do nto need because Ms do not make it easier? The Creator update will add stuff i will never use, whihc is fine, but allow us to uninstall it, allow us to have a choice. the same with Cortana, don't just let us think it is disiabled when it is still running int he background, it need to be disbaled correctly.
    I know the MS fanboys will vote this down, but they seem to just go with what Ms does and got no mind of their own,  if people want to use cortana, or Edge or other apps then fine, i have no problem with that, but just give us that chjoice of uninstalling them. 
    The same with Cortana, if we do use it then allow us to use the search engin we want, i know people will come sout with you do not get a choice on Androlid, but that is a phone OS and even so it does annoy me that the google search bar is on the home screen of my phone and unless I use another launcher I can not get rid of it.  The difference here is that it is a phone not a computer, I know what I am getting when I buy a Android based phone and it is my choice, i could go for an IPhone, but I am not fond of them or I could go for a normal non-smart phone, it will still do the basic stuff I use a phone for. 
    Computers are different, what choice do we really have in the computer Os market? Yes we can go for Apple, i like Macs, I think they are nicenmachiens with a nice OS, but they are expeanisvive and pretty limited and also Apple got as much control over them as what Ms wants over Windows and I also got the same complaints, Siri can not be disabled, too much intergration. Linux is a great OS, choice of desktop and distros, i use Mint on a second hard drive and on my laptop  and I love it, but the software is not there, sure for basic browsing, office stuff, maybe a bit pf basic photo eiditng and video editing it is fine, but the software is not as poilished or powerfvul as Windows based software, if it was i would have dumped windows a log time ago. So we are left with Windows, but Ms is taking windows in the wrong direction, they seem to want more info off us, want us to use the cloud more and have more control over the OS, some of us do not want that and yet when we disable things that is wrong and get comments like should have stayed with XP, but if we did that then we would be moaned at for doing that.  I installed the creator edition on my machine at the moment just to have a nose, it seems faster and more resposive than other versions of 10, I always thought 10 was les repsonsive than Windows 8.1 to be honest. but it does undo some of the security stuff I have changed, like I disabled cortana well and trully and now it is back. My problem is I do not like Windows 10, i do not like the syping, I do not like the Os as a service thing that Ms is chucking at us.. In other words we will do what we want and keep updating. 
    But I need to update my computer hardware wise and MS have said that Windows 8.1 and below will not be supported on the newer processors, so I either have to stick with Windows 10 or just not bother to update the computer. Oh yes, I use start is back as the menu, no windows 10 menu then and it is cheap enough to buy.  
  • I'm tired of explaining why some apps are uninstallable for a reason. Educate yourself but hint - it's not don't to annoy you.
  • i have done searches for why some apps can not be uninstalled and come up with very little, I did get a lot of how to uninstall the apps Ms do not want you to uninstall. i do not see the point in not allowingf us to uninstall the apps we are not going top use, like Groove music, i have no interest in using this, I have spotify for music and if  i do play anything I have stored on the hard drive i will not use groove music. Onenote, again i have no interest, so again why not just allow me to get rid of it? films and Tv, I will never use, messenger what ever it does I will not use either, connect will not even work on my machine and yet I can not get rid of it. 
    something called mixed reality portal, no idea what it is and i do not it, but Ms seems to think it should stay on my computer.  Paint3d, photos, people Xbox and others I do not need them. i do not even have an Xbox. i could understand a few years back when MS made the excuse that we could not get rid of IE because it was intergrated into the Os, but they do not even have that excuse now.    
  • They could integrate it in other places.
  • The new share function kind of do the trick for phones. So, no need to have People implemented on the taskbar for Mobile.
  • It looks like a redux of the People Hub we had back with WP7, and which lost 3rd party app coordination with WP8 and W10m. I have missed it ever since.
  • Exactly.
  • I've been wanting them to reorganize how windows 10 mobile is laid out. A couple changes could help to realign mobile and pc. For example, swipe to the right could bring up the notification and action center, just like it is on pc. Float the Taskbar at the top (or bottom which I think might actually be better.), there you could have Cortana sitting ready for use, most common people and the ability to scroll for more, etc. Imagine jumping into an app and the Taskbar disappearing. Then, you are at a website you want to share, swipe from the bottom or top to pull the Taskbar up (just like you do for pc with full screen apps) and click a person, click share website via your favorite app, whoosh, keep on surfing. So slick. And much more consistent.
  • Windows capture 3D experience is the one that I recommend for the redstone 3 update.
  • Yep, we saw it demo'd let's get it in our hands for real.
  • New Lockscreen, New tab UI for edge
  • More personalization for Mobile, please. Just invent something.. XD
  • MyPeople needs Skype for Business/Office365 integration Agree 100% about Cortana.  She needs more space and customization options. Need desktop tiles – even large ones – Cortana is a perfect example of a large tile on the desktop.  So it weather.  So is email, etc.  Think of them as square widgets that open an app. Reimagine the start menu.  It’s not great Reimagine the systray.  It’s not great on touch. Want a slide-from-left and slide-from-right peek action. Meaning, when I slide in and don’t pick up my thumb, I should be able to slide back out.
  • Definitely fix the Start Menu. The ABC crap makes the menu 10 times longer. I know Word starts with a "W". Because of the ABC's I have to scroll and scroll and scroll. I have too many programs to create tiles and making desktop icons is a bad fix. I might as well go back to Win 7.
  • You can click the header of each letter (the letter itself) to bring up an alphabet list, then click "W" to jump to that section. Just like on Mobile.
  • Thank you
  • I just start typing in the start menu. WO.. and click on Word. Make Live Tiles on the Desktop optional. I have a super clean desktop - SUPER clean - and would like to see a huge Cortana tile and a few others. What's the point of a LIVE tile if it is buried in the start menu.
  • The alphabet section heading concept is to enable you hot-link to the apps with names starting with any letter or number - very fast and intuitive when you know it's there.
  • Click on a letter. Click W. Done.
  • Night light for phones. More features need to sync between mobile and pc.
  • Microsoft Arrow launcher for Android as a Windows launcher with tiles, to replace current Start screen.
  • I want this so badly
  • Me too
  • Me too...wish for the same
  • SquareHome is another launcher that is exactly as you describe. 
  • Me too
  • I'd like an Office/Document Hub on toolbar and Edge needs 'frequent' on jump list.
  • Agree with the Edge suggestion. Long overdue.
  • How about faster installation of updates. It's beyond ridiculous that a windows update takes longer to install than a clean install of Windows 10. That includes store apps which don't even show the size of the download of the apps it's updating.
  • 30mins isn't bad (from "update and restart" to "enter your pin/password"). And I have a pretty old PhenomII CPU.
  • Why do we have Cortana as an assistant and then something next to it a lot more abstract, which is serving us notifications, Action Center?
  • Great point (why the downvotes?) for desktop certainly. Cortana should notify me of everything, she's my assistant. She could use differing sound alerts or text colours or tones of voice to express the type and urgency of the notification. It would solve the tiresome repetition of dismissal on my (far too many) devices.
    Yes, I could become henpecked by her chirruping every time candycrush gets reinstalled after I’ve deleted it but I’d like to think I could adjust the level of notifications from her globally - from one device for all. (option to ex/include this/all/specific devices)
  • Lots and lots and LOTS of us don't have Cortana yet, and judging by their implantation rate we won't get it in another 50 years... So no, Cortana can't replace anything.
  • Any commitment to mobile would be a nice change from the last 18 months of garbage. Maybe we could even get a new phone for a change!
  • Swipe capability on full Windows touch keyboard. For Cortana to recognize that I'm talking to my Xbox, not my PC, and vise versa.    
  • **** I accidenty reported this thread when I meant to vote up. How do you unreport  
  • I can't understand why they can't give us the swipe functionality on the desktop version for the on screen keyboard. I don't use a keyboard with my Surface 3 and the lack of swiping makes it so slow to type stuff out with compared to the keyboards on Android. They have this functionality on mobile and even bought up SwiftKey not too long ago, so there's real excuse to not have it.
  • Xbox streaming and desktop app streaming of any app from cloud servers or an online win 10 pc.
  • 1. Cortana to all
    2. "tap to pay", decent wallet app to all
    3. Landscape mode for startscreen
    4. Night mode for tired eyes
    5. Better notification center, notes keep dropping as time goes by---> soft reset
    6. Edge improvements, still behind Chrome
    7. More consumer based future features, not only enterprise push
    8.More "remote apps", got LG app for Tv, works great
    9. Equalizer in notification center
    10. Battery livetile with percentage left, more information, great to pin from settings
  • 6. Edge improvements, still behind Chrome   Will always be dude, we only want that Edge works well, for me this is enought.
  • Im agree with 2, 9 & 10.
  • What do you mean by 1.? My region is set to Finland. In search settings, I have the option to choose Cortana language to enable "her". My phone language is set to US though (since that's what I'm used to).
    My point is, at least for me, Cortana is enabled. It's not localized but it's there with "hey Cortana" and all that
  • Of corse, Im not born yesterday. I mean my own setting language and region and all the nice features, compability. Im not looking at a basic version and I give a **** about sports in USA. You know what I mean now don't you👍
  • Lucky you. My 950XL here in Denmark can't enable Corrina unless EVERYTHING is set to US. And yes, I've been through all walkthroughs I could find, including a few hard resets. No dice.
  • On mobile: Mirrorlink support so we can use the maps app on recent cars' stereos; The ability to run overlay apps; Dual window mode.
  • Picture lock for phones
  • I want search from start as great as windows 7.
  • All i want is split screen multitasking on phones 5.5 in and higher, UPDATED facebook and messenger apps, the same word flow keyboard on pc and mobile and more reliable notifications
  • Duel boot option to andriod
  • Hey!
    -Windows defender for mobile will be great 😊
  • Ur right
  • For what? Mobile don't have viruses
  • I want to see an option for the stock apps to have an option to choose a colour for the tiles ,instead of using the transparent or system colour
  • nr1:
    I want native file preview capability for creative files. its there for .npg .jpg but nog for .gif .psd .ai .eps and so on. This should have actually be in the creators update in my opinion.  Apple had fugured out a way to support a beautiful small and fullscreen preview of these file types in the finder. They may have licenced some to make it work. Mircosoft should do the same.  nr2:
    Colomn view in windows file explorer. 
    The overal design design of windows file explorer could use an (neon) update to. 
     
  • Hopefully the actual Redstone 3 will have more than the 7 useless things mentioned here. When I work on the computer I work with files, not people. I need a better/easier file management and organization system, rather than a people management system.
  • I tend to agree. I miss the functionality of WM6. It was much more business or work oriented, as I see it. Would really like to see a stylus included, with handwriting recognition. Perhaps like PalmOS. Some of us have big fingers and the skinny keyboard buttons are cumbersome.  How about sync capability to the desktop versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint?  AND, add that to the Windows Phone app for MAC.
  • How about on Xbox you can give people "nicknames" so I can say hey cortana is Max online rather than cortana guessing their gamertag.
  • I would like a feature that a program called AllSnap had on Windows 7, Magnetic Snapping. https://cdn-images-1.medium.com/max/716/1*dj0xNjp-KntTSmTKpP5VkA.gif
  • Multiple "desktops" (start screens) - like on the PC ...
  • I would like a feature that a program called AllSnap had on Windows 7, Magnetic Snapping. https://cdn-images-1.medium.com/max/716/1*dj0xNjp-KntTSmTKpP5VkA.gif   Of course, it would be optional to turn off.
  • Floating Cortana is an amazing idea :)
  • More floating apps in general would be great on a desktop setting.  I always have Hangout bubbles open in the side just like a Chromebook.  It is the best of both worlds!  The app takes next to no space, but is always up front and available for use/notifications.
  • I'd like Cortana to take over. Just becoming one with Windows. She can take care of everything and be everywhere. E.g. Action centre, translate, etc. Make sure she's everywhere, well, she can be with Bing too!
  • I want to see transpartent notification bar on windows mobile  
  • Exactly!
  • I hope they won't leave Lumia 950 & 950 XL users behind with the CShell.
  • I'm pretty sure they'll leave us behind. It's probably going to require a Snapdragon 835 or better.
  • I don't exactly see what would they achieve by making it available for literally no devices as latest snapdragon in w10m is the 820 but i am afraid you are right.
  • Interactive live
    tiles
  • Game Changer!
  • Me personally I'd like the ability to load Android apps. It's my phone so give me the freedom to install them. If I install a rouge app or one with a virus then it's on me and I'd suffer the consequences.
  • I think that has more to do with Google than Microsoft, why don't you go ask them?
  • ability to pin-to-start any file or folder in File Explorer (Mobile)
  • Nice idea.
  • Id like Cortana to know I'm on holiday and stop work reminders, time to leave etc.
  • Cortana available to all markets. Even with limited functionality, it would be great to be able to use features like let's say Quiet Hours without having to set my location to another country...
  • You no longer have to. I have my language as US but my region is my home country and Cortana does Quiet Hours just fine. Wish she did the "time to work" reminder that way as well, though, that was neat.
  • Yes, but I would like to set the language to my own as well....
  • Not working on my Danish 950XL; only with EVERYTHING set to US.
  • There is not even Bing for all markets, how could Cortana work without Bing?
  • Side-by-Side (well, top and bottom) UWP apps like on Android N Float video player like on Android O Night Light Improve Bluetooth support, including finally fix the audio shutter issue on any CPU activity Android Auto support for car integration (its open source, just add it.. output Continium to start with. ​
  • I was really excited for MyPeople. I hope this lives up to the promise. I would love to not have to think about who I need to message on which platform. Night Light on Mobile would be great as well. I currently try not to be on the computer within two hours of bed, but I don't have that same rule for phone. And lastly, smarter notification sync needs to happen. When I first heard there was notification sync between Mobile and other Windows 10 devices, I assumed I would be able to clear a notification from an app on one device and it wouldn't be there when I turned on another device with the same app later. Nope, I just get notifications twice on the desktop - one from the app, one from the phone - plus on my phone. Sure it means I don't have to look at my phone for all notifications, but now there's more on each of my 4 Windows 10 devices.
  • Troubleshooting for every problem in mobile......
  • What I want to see in Win10 Redstone3: (after waitung more than 2 years now):  Placeholder icons in file explorer for OneDrive files being online only.
  • I want Microsoft to push far-field microphone and Cortana.  (Right now, when we ask Hey Cortana, the focus switches to the TaskBar which isn't good.) a UWP tabbed File Explorer.  (might finally do away from those left-overs from win95.) A new Networking UI.  (Homegroup is terrible.  I know of no one that uses it.  Something easy to pick up and handy.  Also accessible from W10M.) DLNA and DIAL incorporated in MS apps.  (It's all there waiting to be used!)
  •   I want the Windows 10 interface on the rest of the system, example (context menus and file explorer)
  • - Hold Back to exit app (optional)
    - Close all apps button in Task Switcher
    - Swipe down tab preview to close tab in Edge
    - Extension support in Edge Mobile
  • Really nice ideas
  • One more: SET DEFAULT APPS.
  • What I want to see in Win10 mobile : 1. OneDrive client like in Win10 desktop, being able to sync DIRECTORIES (not only single files!). 2. To forget about all the apps doing upload of files (pictures of foto-app, officelens etc, whatsapp media, etc etc...) to OneDrive, sometimes in 'strange' directories, and replace all this by a proper OneDrive client doing sync to server (and also from server if I decide) of directories on my decision. 3. Mirroring or 'real' continuum - screen should be able to be switched easy - not like to go to settings / screen / extended settings / external sreen / and then I found it (?!?) 4. Edge explorer should have very similar settings as the desktop version of edge; e.g. switch to 'inprivate' - setting as stndard, delete on close, etc....      
  • Start Menu Sync between Mobile and Desktop. I have both setup the same and would like it to do it automatically on my phone. Detailed click reduction. Analyze ways of reducing mouse clicks to get certain to certain interface settings. Get rid of the old windows GUI left over from Windows 8 and earlier, IE switch everything over to a Metro looking interface including explorer.exe and all control panel and windows context menus. Seems kinda silly to be using Windows 10 Metro unless you go into Control Panel or Explorer and suddenly your back in something that looks more like windows XP/9x. Yeah I know, none of these things will ever happen but I can dream ;)
  • There's this issue in which if you have your color to automatically change from the background, it refreshes all Explorer windows and resets the scroll bar. It's highly annoying. It needs to be addressed. Microsoft says the fix is to turn off the automatic colors but I want to be able to have that.
  • What about interactive livetiles they promised us?
  • I don't know that they were "promised".  But yeah,  I'd like those too.
  • They showed them at ignite i think
  • Way back when, I was able to draw a single persons name, title, address, and so on into a doucment I was writing. I would like and could really use that feature as I do a lot of single person (not bulk)letter writing. I would go to the area were I could select the word processor I wanted in the database program fire up a word temple I created with in that data program WaLa the persons infomrtion was instered to the letter. Sooooooooooo I would like "People" to be able to work with "Word" to do that.  I want this to work on my Windows 830 phone as well so when I am on the road I can create the letter right then and there, before I forget the details of the meeting. Then have my office HP print it out via e-mail, which it does now anyhow. But in the case it comes out on my letter head so I can mail it when I get back. Bet  you thought nobody wrote letters anymore it was all e-mail, tweets and other things. I have been waiting for the updates to Widnows 10 to sync' my start screens on my Desktop and my notebook (It never moves, but has to beable to move should it be required to so I don't lose my business to a fire or somthing). I can't seem to dublicate the back ground that is on the START screen on  the notebook on the PC.  They have the same titiles but on the PC the titles are on a background to far left and behind a two line Task Bar.  But wait, there is probably more to come...........  
  • -Pay method for all countries with easy steps .
    -Long life for battery.
    -New way for notification.
    -Cortana must be smarter .
    - Build environment must understood user automatically.
  • 1. Mobile Night Light. 2. Mobile VR. 3. Apps! 4. Support for the Lumia 920. Pretty much resigned to getting the new Galaxy s8 when it comes out for items 2 & 3 mentioned above. But would probably keep my 930 as a night time news reading phone if item 1 is addressed. If items 1 & 4 are addressed I'd use my old 920 instead of my 930 for night reading as it's far more ergonomic with its rounded edges and also has glance screen so I'd get my night clock back as I use the wireless charge stand.
  • Forgot a few
    5. Interactive live tiles, think I just gave up hope on this one and forgot about it..
  • 6. Wish predictive text would remember a full email address, especially my own.
  • I don't use my pc for work. So I would like some eye candy. I would like to see aero brought back the way it was in "longhorn".
  • How about customized text tones?
    Had customizable text tones in Win8 mobile and since flipping over to Win10, I've lost all my customized text tones. I have not found a fix for this. I've rebuilt my phone twice from a fresh build.
  • You can have these now. You just can't change your default text tone or the ones assigned to specific people don't work.
  • Cortana in Dutch! ☺
  • I'm an old Unix guy, and using CShell to refer to the Composable Shell is very confusing (CShell refers to the Unix shell created by Bill Joy -- I don't know if there's a version of CShell for Linux -- Bash generally superceded all the older Unix/Linux shells).  Anyhow they need a new name or a less confusing moniker. Since Terry Myerson alluded to "cellular" PC's and tablets, I'm guessing that at some point we'll see devices that contain cellular modems, and far field microphones.  When that happens, I'd like to be able to say: "Cortana, call my mother", and then carry on a conversation while walking around the room.  "Cortana, take a letter" would be pushing the envelope, but would be amazing for those of us that don't type so well. I agree with everything else in the article.  I would like some completely unanticipated features that nevertheless amaze and delight us -- something groundbreaking (:grin).
  • When are we gonna have all desktop app working on mobile?
  • an improved and stable windows media player
  • an improved and stable windows media player, please
  • My BIGGEST wish though is for them to follow through on their developer feature that lets you perform an action on a notification and for it to dismiss/update. I'm SOOO sick of getting a reminder on my phone and pressing snooze, then getting the reminder on my work pc and my pc at home and my tablet at home, and my android device at home. Then as a nicety I'd like to see split screen on mobile.Microsoft was first to market with this idea on windows RT then samsung implemented it on Note, Apple eventually implimented it. And iI believe it's a standard feature on Android 6 and up right? Seems like there could be a threshold where they could say okay this cpu and higher gets that specific feature.    I'd also like to see changes to file explorer on mobile so I can see specific paths such as c:\users\me\onedrive
    That way I can make groove playlists with offline files and sync them to my phone into that folder and the play list will just work and I wont have to stream or download them from cloud to phone.  This will also allow us to do things like say with universal emulator play the game on pc but have roms and save files in one drive so you can pickup exactly where you left off when you're back on mobile.
  • Question if landscape mode waspart of WM(back in the days) why is it so hard to get it now? better yet why was it not an option from day one??
  • 1. I want car support for mobile. I know people are gonna say blah blah they left the Mirrorlink alliance blah blah mobile is dead, but couldn't they just reverse-engineer the Android Auto protocol and use that? 2. I really hope the MyPeople feature has an interesting mobile version. Anyone hear any news on that front? 3. Tile design is sorta not working anymore. Before, each app had its own color, but since they introduced transparency in WP8.1, everyone has migrated to accent-colored tiles, and since apps are universal, on W10 desktop, all tiles are just monochrome. That doesn't help finding that app you need real fast.
  • CShell could serve as a perfect environment for a truly superior W10 automotive platform. I too wish they would throw some attention on car usage.
  • Cortana for everyone and more consumer features
  • I want to see a better support for mobile, more app(from Microsoft), and maybe a bit' smarter ' Cortana in the same way as the smart notifications.
  • Cortana for all region, at least in English initially (dont know what's the problem in releasing Cortana in English in non-Eng regions, later they can bring the native language support there)
    More aero-glass like blurrness/transperancy in the UI,
    More and more animations which will be fluidic like was on 8/8.1 metro UI.
    More consistency between the UWP environment and the traditional desktop environment(titlebar, menubar, context menu etc-which apple has been done succesfully)
    In built dark theme for file explorer. 
    More quick actionable button for notifications in the action centre.
  • 1.USB tethering and reverse tethering for.mobile.
    2. Simultaneous audio output to all audio devices .
    3. Customized field for people app, not just mobile 1,mobile 2.
    4. Static ip, volte,SIP support, different ringtones for dual sim, (for mobile)
    5. Use own word to call cortana.
    6. Be able to Use 5ghz wifi on airplane mode.
  • Just an idea, but given (almost all) WC users are probably also in the insider programme, couldn't articles such as this include links to the respective feature requests/bug reports so that these topics gain some serious attention and those, let's say "less active", insiders start to cast feedback.
  • i dont use insider anymore, to many times its messed up my computers to the point of formating and reinstalling the os.  Thats a issue on both desktop and mobile, actually on my lumia 930 i think ive only been sucessful in restoreing my phone from a saved image 3 times out of hundreds cause it always seems to leave killer bugs behind.
  • All I wanna see really on Windows 10 Mobile, is the ability to add a static IP to a wifi network profile. This is a basic feature that has been missing for quite some time now. It annoys me.
  • RSS
  • i would like Cortana to actually be useful, tell me when deliveries are turning up, did this for 5 min but dosn't anymore, cards seem out of date, using google gives so much more relevent info traffic updates etc. option for larger tiles on mobile, folder for tiles on pc (is this in redstone 2 not sure).  improved one drive app access from system, so i don't have to download the files to pc, worked great  in windows 8    
  • Curved keyboard.
  • Solid wish list Zac. I agree within everything you mentioned and would add full GATT functionality (if it's not coming with the Creator's Update); universal copy and paste; and keyboard enhancements a la iOS Flow keyboard (backgrounds, etc.)
  • Faster Camera 📷 and an OTG support would be great!!
  • I personally find no use of Cortana on my PC.. Needs to be more integrated with the core features of the OS and other tasks. In the recent builds I don't find any use of Cortana whatsoever after boot
  • i use cortana on my computer to load up my pc games, netflix, music and for reminders, calender dates, calculator, quick searches.  it works great, unfotunatly i still cant get it to play specific movies in plex or netflix.  i think in 2015 cortana awas the best ass but now 1 year later i feel rivals like alexia have overtaken cortana in apps like plex and netflix, Big shame but not a surprise as microsft often introduce a killer feature or software then let the competion take over.  Droping the ball is nothing new to microsft.  Examples include, skype, groove which still doesnt have a app on a ipad lol or a app on android that can read sd cards from the s7 series phones.  But honestly without a strong mobile phone presence i dont feel microsft will be relivant in a few years, well at least to me anyway and i love windows 10.
  • I would love to be able to set up a virtual desktop and then save it for future use. This way I could create a desktop for working on photo projects with all the necessary tools I need or a support desktop and have then saved as a shortcut on my main desktop ready to go.
  • As a heavy Continuum user, there are some basic things that would make me really happy: 1. First of all, I would extremely enjoy having COMPLETE mouse settings, like in Windows. I always use the fastest cursor speed, with the longest trail and other accessibility features that are just not there. 2. As a polyglot, I frequently write in different languages. But in Continuum, there is no easy way of switching languages. Alt+Shift, to my demise, is not yet implemented. 3. I use a lot of external displays with my Lumia 950XL. On some hotel TVs, the image is nice and dandy. But on many, too many, it is not clear and would require ClearType which, can you guess?, was not yet implemented. Furthermore, the screen resolution seems to be stuck at 1920x1080. But most hotel TVs that I have seen only support 1366x768. If you connect wirelessly, via the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter, you cannot set the resolution and the image is just bad. Thus, I would love to be able to manually set the resolution of the external display. All in all, if Continuum had the usability features Windows 95 had, that would be great!
  • 2. Win+space = switch keyboard layout.
  • 1. A more consistent tablet experience: -support for rotation of snapped apps between landscape and portrait orientations. Is currently locked to desktop mode for the last 2 years (too long). -support for snapping two apps, one above the other in portrait orientation in tablet mode. -a more consistent and finished palette of features similar to mobile and pc: for start menu and live tiles. For example landscape orientation for the start menu for pc and mobile, selecting and editing multiple live tiles (supported in windows 8.1), being able to control the tranparency and vibrance of individual live tiles (currently mobile only) - support the option to hide the side panel in the start menu for a mote consistent look between mobile and oc start menu - support the option to disable live tile groups in the full screen start menu in tablet mode. This would allow a similar experience of freedom to pin live tiles as mobile. 2. interactive live tiles. I think Mypeople would be a better implementation as a collapsible interactive live tile dash in conjunction with the people app, rather than a function of the taskbar. Plus interactive live tiles would allow more options with regard to start menu customizability and functionality such as a groove interactive tile with play/pauze next button, or a stopwatch tile with a play/pauze/reset buttons, or a contact messging tile with an interactive notification system and more. 3. More live tile sizes. Currently 1x2, 2x2, 2x4 and 4x4 formats are support. I think they should be expanded with 4x2, 4x8, 8x4, 8x8, 1x2 and 1x4 sizes. 4. Support for windows ink in mail and calendar. Expanding of windows ink functionality with maps supporting multiroite planning with windows ink. 5. ink to text conversion as part of windows ink 6. Continuum with support of being able to snap at least two apps side by side in mobile. 7. Expand incentives fir UWP app support for continuum 8. Further expansion of Cortana language support. In esscence I have seen Cortana only work relevantly enough for the US market. Elsewhere it hardly has any value. Yet it is presented by microsoft as a relevant marketing feature and increasing functionalities are increasingly tied to Cortana, without Cortana to be able to have enough power to be able to used in the global market scene, simply because language portfolio is too small. 9. Hopefully project neon will bring consistency in context menu design 10. Further integration of control panel and start menu. 11. Further integrated design of the explorer and onedrive. CurrentlybI think the use of onedrive with explorer is very patchy and inconsistent and confusing in conjunction with the onedrive app. 12. indeed search results frim external drives that actually show up in the search results listing of windows search.  
  • These comments are for Mobile... NEON - Yes! Smarter Cortana with Context - Yes! Landscape desktop - Don't really care.  I rarely use my phone in landscape nor want to. People Hub - Don't see why it's so important.  Then again, I'm not a big collaborator with Office or social media person. Better feature parity - Yes, but I don't see what the major let down was about not having Night mode. What I think they really need to work on is making text input, suggestion, correction, and UX paramount.  This is what people spend the most time doing on a phone and it needs to be flawless.  I am tired of fumbling.  Also, there is no reason we should have to enter values in for fields.  Ex:  we are forever asked for our email address in websites.  Why doesn't Edge Mobile auto fill those things in for me?
  • As a long time Prosumer user, these are the improvements that would be welcomed... - Read aloud in Edge Reading View. - Cortana voice as default narrator voice. - Maps should have option to avoid non-tarmac roads (stone/brick roads) its unsuitable for regular cars - Notification LED light enabled for calls and battery status. - Store wish lists
    Edge should allow extensions in Continuum - Xbox Play Anywhere for Continuum - It needs to support Background downloading of large files when screen times out - It needs a Restart option
  • I would like the option to shut down, restart, or lock the phone, like on Android devices and PCs.
  • Can they bring back the square photos like on Windows 8.1 foe the phones please?
  • square photos?   i hope you dont mean photoes you take being square.  On thing i miss on my lumia 930 now im on a s7 edge is its automatic hd res  and wide screen photo ratio.
  • Sorry meant in the People app for contacts.
  • - Allow multiple instances of apps to be opened in Continuum - Allow multiple apps to be opened split screen (side by side) in Mobile mode - Outlook calendar needs a search function to find scheduled events - Maps should be able to reveal GPS co-ordinates to supply to first responders in the event of an emergency - We need an option to change Outlook Mail font size independently without having to change the System font size
  • Getting Skype without preview and much better integration in Win10....
  • they tried intergrating skype into windows 10 but they claimed users didnt like it.  What they failed to say was that the app was missing a slew of settings and features previous skype illiterations had, hell on desktop i couldnt even send photos or videos lol.  shame they didnt do it properly the first tinme.  shame they rebooted.  Lets not have another reboot cause that wouls mean another 2 years of missing features.
  • I would like to be able to see the top area of the phone during a phone call.  So I can still view the time and/or battery life remaining.
  • I want to see Cortana and speech functionality.
  • 1. World flow on my surface would be great.
    2. Are we ever getting back tab syncing like we had with IE on 8.1?
    3. They need to do something about notifications between phone and pc. It's annoying when I turn on my surface and it's just loads of notifications coming through .
    4. A close all option in mobile task switcher
  • More keyboards! At times I cannot see what I am writing and it's frustrating. Okay when you can move the keyboard but still the is still too big.
  • Onedrive On-Demand Sync!!!
  • gestures beta would be nice with speakerphone option as its never been on the windows 10 mobile platform but was brilliant on the windows 8.1 platform.  Why is it 2 years later such a simple and great feature is still missing?  Its one thing wishing for new features but another when theres so many old features taking way too long to apear in windows 10, its pushed me over to a s7 edge.
  • Move phone away from face and speakerphone is automatic? Already there, just have to enable the setting.
  • (1) I'd like to be able to give comments on WindowsCentral without having to open the site in IE (2) rename virtual desktops (3) as others mentioned, a little more control over notifications when using multiple devices (4) Teach cortana shortcuts and macros in our voice - ie give an app a name of our choice, which could be as simple as namiling OneNote 2016 "OneNote" so I don't have to chose between it and the touch version (5) It's absurd that basic features like quiet mode are only available in regions where you can use Cortana! I'm sick of my Swedish wife's 950 waking me up all night with notifications (she sleeps through it) while my 950 set to english is in nice quiet mode. If you're not going to internationalize Cortana (why not, Apple and Google can) then at least don't have essential features tied to it. (6) bring back auto-quiet mode based on calender appointments. I loved that feature. (7) allow "renaming" of cortana so that she doesn't respond on multiple devices in the same room. Maybe even just "Hey, XBOX Cortana" (8) multiple profiles with own sessions in Edge.
     
  • GDPR will have lots to do with why Cortana is not in specific countries. Bear in mind that by using Cortana, your PII flows back and forth and is subject to lots of laws and regulations as it hops across oceans or from country to country. Encryption being at the top of the heap of concerns... Your #5 made me laugh so hard, I swear! I had originally read it as: "I'm sick of my Swedish wife waking me up all night....she sleeps through it..."
    I had to finally re-read it to get your point...
    Too funny...
      +1 for your bullet #6
  • Better notification panel, sliders for volume and brightness on tablets, gestures as on windows 8.1, horizontal start screen as in windows 8.1
  • 1. More "Send to Phone/Tablet" options. Especially in Maps.
    2. "Open on Device" for apps, websites, thongs like that.
    3. Close the App Gap!
  • I agree with this list
  • I want split screen multi tasking and qr scanner add to Cortana,as well as city lens added to maps. Bring back all our good windows phone 8/8.1 features
  • Wasn't there talk a few months ago about making your Windows 10 device as a sort of smart home hub so you can control smart home gadgets and use your PC as a family device?
  • I'd like them to release the 3D capture app for mobile. Technically not part of the OS but promised nonetheless.
  • Also I'd like to be able to pin map searches to calendar events and to share appointments by email from within calendar
  • I'll revive my old complaint from a year ago.
    Rooms in WP8 were one of major reasons why my wife and I switched to WP8 and created our our Family room where we shared appointments, shopping lists, to do lists, pictures, texted each other....
    Then, they axed it. I really loved the way it was integrated, all in a single fluid app.
    Why can't they build a simple aggregator for Skype, Calendar, OneNote and Photos?
    This should not be that hard. People hub is a step forward, but not quite on par with Rooms.
  • My wishlist is they make tablet mode like Windows 8.1. I miss horizontal scrolling and swipe task view.
  • I have put  up with my Windows phone for 3 years,  I like the phone (Lumia 930),  the ability to use my Office apps,  but as an actual phone it is missing something that makes it less useful to me than my old Nokia N95 and previous phones. When I receive an SMS , if I am not next to the phome and don't hear the alert, it stops after a few seconds and that is it.  With my older phones the alert tone repeated over and over for 10-15 minutes,  or I could select a reminder that would alert me periodically that there had been an sms that was unread. I would like to see options to customise the alerts for received SMS,  and perhaps missed calls.  When I first bought the phone I I spent some time trying to find out how to do these things, and researched several user forums , and was surprised to find it was simply not possible. I waited software updates and am now running Windows 10 mobile. Smartphone features etc are great - but I also want my phone to be convenient as a phone.  
  • I want on-demand WIN10 voice to text whenever I have a text input box, just like on W10M. That's all I want. Otherwise this ecosystem does so much so well.
  • Night light's not in Mobile?? Now I am really mad! I was really anticipating that!
  • lack of nightlight on mobile makes me so freaking mad I want to explode, and not yet having landscape start, after asking a bazillion times, and then have some big dude on w10m ask if we really want it, then to do nothing, jeez
  • What I really want the People App to have the option to use flipping squares instead of circles on the live tile.
    Seriously.
  • How about what needs to come back for phones?
    Like...
    +Kids Corner
    +Rooms
    +Carousel-like apps
    +Stability
    +The "squish" when you scrolled too far
    +All the cool Cortana animations
    +Flippity-flip-flip tiles that flip-flip constantly
    +Squares in the People Live Tile
    +Less hamburger menus
    Yep. That's what I want/need for mobile.
  • Now PCs....
    +Horizontal option for full-screen Start (like in W8.1)
    +The option to have the Charms Menu (8.1) again (action center built in?)
    +Screen brightness was controlled by a slider (8.1). Now it's by button (10).
    +Time popped up (8.1)
    +More fluid swipe controls (like 8.1)
    +Live-er live tiles
  • 1) Landscape mode for start screen
    2) Start button with landscape mode
    3) New video edit options for camera
    4) Transp. Notification Center
    5) A good selfie app
    6) New sound control system
    7) New 3d effects for live tiles
  • Fix the Maps app. I keeps saying no GPS signal, and doesn't work properly when I try to get directions. I did all the trouble shooting. When I use the Waze navigation app the GPS works fine. That's why I know it's the maps app. It started happening when I got the last major update.
  • Both Desktop and Mobile should have taskbar Both Desktop and Mobile should have icon-desktop [with icons as tiles] Vertical Scroll in Mobile and Horizontal view in desktop is inconsistent  
  • I want: - Libraries working as they should ( https://aka.ms/q8cvvh ) - Split screen multitasking in portrait Tablet Mode ( https://aka.ms/Vrsrxs ) - Selecting and organizing of multiple tiles ( https://aka.ms/a8esma ) along with many other handy Tablet features from Windows 8.1.1 ( https://goo.gl/zzdYZW ) - Aero, I simply can't stop missing this from Windows 7, fortuantely, looks to be coming back in the form of project NEON - Interactive Live tiles ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUfMszCJSwI ), simply the outright best way to have Widgets on Windows (seriously needed) - Built-in Clipboard history manager that works seamlessly between Tablet Mode and Desktop Mode ( https://aka.ms/S68ijk ) - A built-in customizable radial menu that can be triggered via a user-configurable shortcut at Settings > Devices > Pen & Windows Ink, similar to Wacom's offerings, but doesn't break continuum ( https://goo.gl/APhpYJ ) - Cortana being useable without 24/7 spyware requirements ( https://aka.ms/Pskgo6 )
  • Wasn't there talk a few months ago about making your Windows 10 device as a sort of smart home hub so you can control smart home gadgets and use your PC as a family device? http://www.joymart.vn/
  • My top three: 1. [MOBILE] Local Network support; they recently improved 'Devices' with DLNA device detection, so now my Lumia 640 can see that I have a MyBookLive NAS, but no native apps that I know of can access it. (3rd party app "Sharefile Explorer" has been able to do it for years, but it's not really a media streamer). Not only do I have documents I want to send back and forth without incurring ISP data usage (as I would with OneDrive), but I also have music, photos, and videos on my NAS that I want on my phone. And I have plenty of storage on my phone, and it will play everything without issue, so what's the problem? WM2005 could do this (though the CPU couldn't handle a lot of video playback) so by 2018 it's really not too much to ask and expect, is it? 2. [ALL] Photos > RESIZE option. So you can create things in Creators Update but they never gave a thought to sharing creations? Here's a creation: a photo I just took on my Windows Mobile 10 phone, it's 3MB in size and 2500px wide or something. If I want to upload to a web forum, share it on WhatsApp or access it on my W10 PC via OneDrive, why do I have to jump through hoops to resize the photo to something more manageable? Again, isn't more than about time, Micrsoft? 3. [MOBILE] Improvements to the keyboard. Spacebar row needs to be taller, as my thumb and index finger tips are fatter/wider/taller than the current spacebar key's height, so I often inadvertently tap the 'c','v',b','n' in the row above it and insert one of those letters instead of a space. Top row should be letters+numbers, and a short unconnected swipe upwards should insert a number. Swiping ("shape drawing") should include the SHIFT key so that capital letters can be written without interruption. Punctuation improvements - add apostrophied variants to the 's', 't' and 'd' key flyouts.
  • 'Ask Cortana' for windows 10 mobile.
  • Call recorder for all the windows 10 mobile.
  • Enable a feature to text,call,mail from pc with the help of cortana.
    Like:
    On pc:Hey Cortana,"please call AB on my phone".
    On pc:Calling AB.(all the options that would appear on windows 10 mobile need to appear on the pc screen)
  • An quick option in the settings to enable/disable action centre on mobile and pc.
  • An alarm has to ring when the battery has reached to certain percentage(according to the % that we have set)while charging.
  • I'm wondering if they can integrate the mobile and PC OS to an extent where I can access my mobile phone from the PC when connected (continuum, but without a separate window. Merging of the devices at a brain level). I'm ahead of myself though :P
    Would love to be able to make phone calls from my laptop, as I used to on Symbian phones
  • This feature (or something similar to it) is coming through Skype at some point. Basically you open the skype app on your desktop and it will use a BT connection to your phone which will relay the call through your carrier's network. Been in the works for a while, and there is half a chance we will see this some time this year or next.
  • Cool! Thanks for the info :)
  • Hello, I wish to follow and know where my kids are using there Windows Phones, and wish also to have the quite mode synchronisation back with my events from my calendar so it will automaticaly shot down all notification on my surface or phone when I am in a meeitng. Thank you in advance.
  • I wish to have an off line international dictionary wich works on any application in order when I click on any words in any application I can find the explanation from Cortana's Dictionary, even if I am offline. Translation could be nice to....
  • 1) dark mode for File Explorer. I mean seriously... it was talked about being in development over a year ago... this should not be hard.
    2) some sort of tab browsing in File Explorer
    3) middle-click in File Explorer should open a new window/tab just like it does in a web browser.
    4) a revamp of the audio manager to be able to route sources to specific outputs on the fly rather than having to select the output first, then re-open the application. Also, master volume should be on the right of the mixer, not the left.
    5) some replacement for Windows Home Server. I understand that MS does not want to do Home Server as it really under-cuts their small business server market, but man... it was so useful! Most of it could be taken care of with yet another revamp of the child account management capabilities, but it would also be nice to have access to basic DNS, DHCP, and print/file share capabilities built into Windows for small networks of 4-10 users. Even if it was a sort of add-on for Windows instead of a full-on server OS feature set I would be happy with it. Just something to make it easier to manage user permissions on the file server so my kids can watch stuff without deleting crap 'on accident', limit their space usage so they stop filling it up, etc. I ran the beta of Server 2016 on my home network, and while overkill I miss having those features available now that it is no longer 'free'.
    6) Fix NFC Tap to Send. I used this option a lot back in the day, and recently got a NFC enabled phone again only to find it no longer works right in win10.
    7) Bring back the ability to use Windows as a Bluetooth device instead of host. In win8 I could use my laptop as a 'headset' for hands-free office use, and they broke this ability in win8.1 when they redid the bluetooth stack. I would LOVE to be able to use the nice mic and speakers on my laptop for a glorified speakerphone in my office space rather than my phone's crappy mic and speaker. It worked better than a fancy poly-comm device! Sucked when it broke.
    8) The death of Control Panel with ALL features integrated into the settings app. Having to go in one place to change one setting, and another place for another related setting is getting old. Give us one place to control everything on our devices, with a basic mode for default users, and an advanced mode that gives us all the nerdy detail we want in a settings app just like we got from Task Manager
    9) Integrate more of Resource Manager into Task Manager. I mean... some 80% of the info is already in task manager... why not merge it the rest of the way so we have 1 good tool instead of 2 OK tools that are mostly redundant?
    10) Re-skin legacy applets for a more 'modern' expierence without loosing functionality. Things like Disk Management, Resource Manager, Event Viewer, etc. all work great... but on displays with high resolution or display scaling they are getting rather difficult to look at. Re-skinning these apps with a modern UI that scales well would be a welcome overhaul.
    11) Fix Remote Desktop so it shows up over the host UI!!!!!!!!! Seriously, it is so annoying to move my host start menu off to the right so I can get to the remote desktop's start menu! I use RDCM most of the time which works far better, but sometimes I go somewhere new and don't want to make a RDCM entry for a one-off login to a system.
    12) Find something useful for Cortana to do. I like the idea of having a personal assistant, and I have tried to use a few of them over the years, but it is often for things that I don't really need (ie adding steps to my life rather than simplifying it), or they are gimmicks that aren't useful to begin with.
    I long for the day when I Cortana has powershell capabilities and I can just say 'hey cortana, reset joe-bob's password at company X to default12345" and Cortana will know who I am, and can send the right commands with the right admin rights to just do it and then email the user and let them know their new temp password. It would just remove so much busy-work of my job.
  • Oh, also night-light is fantastic, but it would be even better if it could distinguish between a normal application window and movie/game content. So many times I am playing a game or watching a movie at 10:30 and it kicks in. The movies and games are already pretty dark so they don't really need it, but when I open an exporer window I don't want to be blinded at 10:30 either.
  • Cooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool!!!
  • I only want one thing. Edge to work reliably with Windows Central. I am useing other browsers for this website because of the constant issues. Could wc not work with the edge team to fix the issues?
  • I would be really happy if that damn Edge browser on my L950 would work. On most web pages text is not displayed correctly and it's not possible to read. 
  • I want Cortana to be able to intelligently use my contacts. It has access to them (I can say "Call John Smith Mobile" and it will correctly call John Smith's mobile) however I can't say: What is John Smith's phone number? When is John Smith's birthday? Navigate to John Smith's House Call John Smith's wife (If that relationship is defined in the contact card) Why these fundamentally basic commands are not available is a complete mystery, I'd love to see them implemented and made useful. One other showstopping bug is Outlook on mobile *STILL* refuses to honour the Reply-To header. It just ignores it completely, making responding to ticket-driven systems where the sender is a website buy the intention is to reply to the user (Gumtree, Ebay, those kinds of systems) utterly unusable. The frustration from this one alone has almost driven me to Android on many occassions.
  • Holy ****, that Project Neon Screenshot Content does look REALLY awesome! Can't wait to see that in an Insider Build or in the finally release!
  • I don't know why they haven't implemented a persistent switch setting for the taskbar 'input indicator' yet. I really hate having to turn it off (again) every time my computer restarts.
  • Let my phone turn off while charging , have more colors option on personalise and changing front writing let start screen in landscape in mood. And please fix the bug which let my phone froze and restart automatically . Thank you
  • I'm starting to worry about Java being removed from Chrome, Firefox and Edge. 
    I can only use IE11 to connect to my work PC from home, I really don't want to see IE11 in Windows 10 Redstone is removed, please keep supporting IE11 since its only browser that lets me use Java applets to connect from home.
  • You should really start using a different method of remote connections...  There are plenty of free ones out there, including Chrome Remote Desktop and TeamViewer and they all work wonderfully.  
  • 1) setting for transparent tiles for EVERYTHING
