    For a moment there, I thought MS had gotten into a completely different kind of hardware.

    Shame there's no modern equivalent to TweakUI in there.

    I like the look of fancy zones. Means i could make it easier to split the screen i have running in portrait to 2 rows so they get half the screen each the nice way instead of the rubbish that you get at the moment in column only.

    Re: First two Microsoft PowerToys released to preview (Win 10)

    I like the winky overlay...

    Not sure about fancy zones, unless you can customise individual app window sizes. I do that already my own self, but with one app taking something like 4/9ths of the lower screen overlaid onto GIS/Map views, where necessary... and several variations of other odd/unequal screen splitting.

    But yeah, cool.

    Power tool was just one app really and that was tweakui, the rest and what they have done here is just more junk.

    I remember, back in the day, when I could be bothered with Regedit and changed the "start" menu to the "stop" menu.

    Boredom. I wish I had that now.

    Re: First two Microsoft PowerToys released to preview (Win 10)

    I'd love FancyZones if it could handle more than one monitor - my second is in portrait, so needs a horizontal split between windows, but my primary is landscape.

    The shortcut guide should be in normal windows, it's useful for a lot more people than just power users
