Now build a new phone with SD835 with full Windows 10 ARM, with normal Win10m UI when using normal phone mode and that allows running desktop apps when connected to Microsoft Display dock and external monitor while providing here full Windows 10 UI. This is what everyone waits for, no tablets or small laptops, PHONES is what business people want!
What in detail is different between System and System (Enhanced) in the app compatibility options?
With System I see no real difference/improvement. With System (Enhanced), it is better, but here I have the issue, that I need to invalidate the window/entry on the other monitor otherwise the text looks ugly (3rd item):
Do you know if WPF applications will be able to take advantage of Per Monitor V2 improvements?
target your app for .net 4.6.2 and you have permonitor awareness by default :
WPF applications are now enabled for per-monitor DPI awareness. This improvement is critical for scenarios where multiple displays of varying DPI level are attached to a single machine. As all or part of a WPF application is transitioned between monitors, the expected behavior is for WPF to automatically match the DPI of the app to the screen. It now does.
- the most annoying part of Visual Studio is the UGLY UI since VS2012. SInce 2013 only a few icons have color again. Add the 2010 icons, not those blurry 16 color icons. That's the reason why my main system is still VS2012, here I have an addon to change the icons to VS2010 (https://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/a36021f0-770a-4258-854e-724e9d12b8a6). Using vs2013/2015 causes a headage for me because of the ugly icons. those Flat, blurry 16 color icons are criminal assault .
- I would like to have a system for extension to allow me to skip an extension update and go back to an older version. Currently I always see the update but there is no way to hide itif I want this (similar to older WindowsUpdate dialog in Win7/8)
ms designer have no taste, so they replaced the glass ui with this 16 color monochrome crap in Windows 8 and made it even more worse in Windows 10. I use glass8.eu with the aero 8 Release preview theme:
nice to see that several features of Resharper now come to VS as inbox features.
The roaming manager is nice, but it misses a button to download all missing extensions. Going to a list of 30 extensions is a pain.
Will it be also possible to sync extension settings?
And the new streamlined installer is the best news for the next VS version. I always unselect unwanted features and was shocked when those options were removed (I think it was in 2010). I only need the desktop .net + EF tool but no azure and web tools.
