I need a HYBRID OS to do the necessary, clearly.

Although, since I'm running a laptop, isn't it already HYBRID, since it runs both on battery and mains power?

RE: Every fucking time, without fail...
Anyway, about Outlook.

It's git this little icon in the system area of the task bar, that lets you know you have unread mail. It also has a nice feature where a window pops up in the corner f your screen, when new mail arrives. offering a preview of said mail, and a couple of clickable actions, like "mark as read", "delete", etc.

But when you perform one of those actions, it immediately assumes you are no longer interested in any other unread mail, either, and switches the notification icon back to "all quiet on the western front." Awesome.

I love those notifications. Especially when the presenter leaves them on. You learn all kinds of things.

RE: Every fucking time, without fail...
So, Outlook lets you create rules to deal with messages as they arrive. Which is nice. In theory. Were it not that this functionality is gimped beyond belief.

Anyway, once you've managed (despite the unnecessary and seemingly random limitations set by the rule creation process) to create a rule, you might want to run it on your inbox, to filter out any messages that are already in there. Luckily, Outlook offers to do just that after creating a new rule! Yay! Wait, my rule doesn't work? What did I do wrong? Well, you did nothing wrong. This functionality plain doesn't do anything. Future incoming messages will be filtered, but trying to do it on existing ones fails every time. Don't pull your hair out; you didn't fuck up. Microsoft did. Of course. You might have known.

I haven't seen this, as it appears to have worked in my inbox.

The problem must be a few inches behind the keyboard. ;)

Not enough inches below the keyboard?

If you drag the scroll bar (I NO RITE) in most, if not all apps, the window content will scroll, letting you read more than fits on the screen. Not so in Outlook, because interface consistency is for losers and we gotta push this Windows 10 look on you!

RE: Every fucking time, without fail...
I was having issues with Office 2010 (stunning, I know) so IT upgraded(?) me to 2016. It's just different enough to be annoying. But at least it doesn't randomly freeze, I guess. It also appears to be more efficient with system resources, as the large Excel files I have that would choke 2010 seem to work fine with 2016.

I hadn't noticed the scroll bar thing, so I tried it. It works as it should within a message and within the favorites pane but not within the mailbox pane. I wonder if that's a preference somewhere or if its a move to be more judicious with system resources.

I think I would have struggled even in 2015 to find a machine with a CD-ROM drive. At work, that is, not at home. But I collect classic computers, so that doesn’t count.

I'm glad that they've taken the time to trademark Plug and Display™

Because you know, it also means plug it in and it fails to play. That's why it's so damned clever -- or would be, if it weren't a registered trademark of your peripheral company.

RE: Every fucking time, without fail...
You wanna have fun, try migrating a Windows install to a larger disk. Glutton for punishment that I am, I've done it twice now (first from an 80 GB hard disk to a 128 GB SSD, then to a 256 GB SSD). The first time, I somehow got it to work properly with my system partition actually being upsized to fill the free space (while also not screwing anything else up). The second time, it got buggered and I got so damn frustrated I just reformatted the entire thing and reinstalled Windows 10.

If I were doing it on my Mac, no problem: Disk Utility > restore smaller disk to bigger disk. Done.
There is no dark side of the moon, really…matter of fact, it's all dark.

RE: Every fucking time, without fail...
The CD above is for a USB3 "docking station". As I walked into the office yesterday morning, I found that they ripped all the cables from my Lenovo docking station, and transferred most of them to this new abomination. Because it only has one DisplyPort, they left one of my LCDs unplugged. And my phone headset. Since I had little time before I had to be in a teleconference and there was a long list of tasks to perform to get the damned thing to work, I plugged everything back into the old docking station and threw the new one into my closet.

I have very bad experience with these things from my time in Switzerland. I had to deal with a (HP) USB-C docking station there, and it would crap out at the slightest: unplug your notebook while displaying a picture? Docking station locks up and has to be replaced. Closed the lid before shutting off your wireless mouse? Docking station short circuits and has to be replaced. Fuck that crap, the Windows world can't get the simplest of things right, so why in the name of Satan's fetid foreskin would I add another layer of shoddy driver software between my machine and its peripherals?

All this in the name of "flexible workspaces". Well, this is my desk and no-one else sits there (or else!) and I'm not having it. Come to think of it, not having that docking box on my desk will hopefully be a deter others from using my desk while I'm on holiday, because "hey, there's no docking station on this desk!" That's right: fuck off.

You can blame Apple for that. Otherwise you would be using that proprietary dock that you plop your laptop onto and only supports the one laptop model and brand - but usually worked forever.
