Windows 10 Quick Tips – Questions, Future



Hello everyone,

Dave’s Computer Tips is founded upon the principle of providing useful, easy-to-understand tips and “How To” articles delivered in plain English. The idea was originated by Dave, of course, and it is hoped that we haven’t strayed from that original goal. The intention was to provide explanations for sometimes complex computer problems in a way that was understandable by the not-so-computer-savvy user by eliminating all the technical jargon and using plain old English as a form of communication. What a concept!  🙂

(Over time, that not-so-computer-savvy crowd has evolved into a very computer-savvy crowd and I always have to keep a careful watch that I don’t miss something our readers will most definitely espy. Lovely keen-eyed devils…)

Quick Tips

I believe, and don’t quote me on this, that the first Windows 10 Quick Tips article was published on September, 7, 2016. I have made a concerted effort to provide a “Quick Tips” article every Wednesday ever since. What I would like to know at this point is if you, dear readers, find them informative and useful to the point where they should be continued? Or have they become long-in-the-tooth and have extended beyond their usefulness?


I find many instances across the internet offering “tips” which are empty of substance, in my opinion. Sure, you can change this or that to your liking, in a thousand ways, but are they earth-shattering? Not really. A little tweak that you won’t ultimately notice? An interface change in the Registry that won’t matter to you a week from now? I simply don’t want to waste your time with trivialities.

The Future

No matter what your opinion may be –positive, negative, or in between– we would like to know so we will be able to continue providing information that will both benefit and interest you. Consider this an end-of-year query. Perhaps you would rather see a different presentation? Maybe you’d like to pose specific questions to our writers in a different format? It’s up to you. How would you like to to get those pressing questions answered?

The Questions

DCT has many resources at its fingertips. You only need to comment on this “poll” to take advantage of those resources. Each one of our writers has their own individual personal experiences and knowledge to share, plus we have access to various affiliates who have always been most helpful when problems with software arises. Then, of course, there is the mysterious, titular Dave, who seems to magically have all the answers at his fingertips whenever we ask.

If you would be so kind, please take a moment of your time and leave a comment expressing your views. Armed with this information, we will be able to better provide you with the types of articles that are important to you. Your thoughts are important to us and they are the only guide we have to being truly reflective of your desires in the future. A new year is upon us– please share… ask questions… we will answer…


Thank you for your anticipated input, and may you have a wonderful holiday experience with your friends and family,
