I am taking bets as to how long it takes "The Clever Ones" to "fix" the windows 10 monitor issue ‪#‎windows10‬ ‪#‎gnfbcomment‬

Sheesh... We've been asking for mind-reading since Win 3.11 and you still haven't delivered it? That's it. I'm installing Linux.

Cheers - N :-)

They are working on it.
It will have to be a hidden feature, as allready there are so many complaints about
MS 'reading' other stuff on the PC   :-)

Perhaps if google or Android do the mind reading app first, there will be less room to complain when MS do it .

Good post. No explanation, no link to an explanation or even hint at what this is about. Hashtags mean nothing and Google turns up nothing either.  I genuinely can't figure out if you're referring to something to do with computer monitors (i.e. screens) or it's some tinfoil hat post about windows monitoring users...??

To get a couple of games working, I had to change which was listed as my Primary Monitor etc, is that perhaps what you are referring to ?

be warned that some of those free tools have adware bundled in them.

Or worse...  wouldn't trust any of them TBH. Much the same way as I wouldn't trust pirated software downloaded from the internet :p
