Remember when Microsoft was obsessed with adding “3D” features to Windows 10 ? From Paint 3D to 3D effects in the Photos app , it was endless. The “3D Objects” folder is an artifact from those days, and Microsoft is finally getting rid of it. Whenever you open File Explorer on Windows 10, the 3D Objects folder is front and center. But how many people use it? Almost no one, surely. That’s why we’ve listed it as one of the many useless features Microsoft needs to remove from Windows 10 . Someone at Microsoft must be listening: On February 24, 2021, Microsoft announced the 3D Objects folder will be hidden from File Explorer. This change is part of the Insider builds of Windows 10’s 21H2 update , which we expect will be released in Winter 2021. RELATED: All the Useless Windows 10 Features Microsoft Should Remove The 3D Objects folder isn’t technically going away—it’s being hidden. You can still find it in your user account folder.

There’s more than one Ubuntu. You can download Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, or Lubuntu: But what’s the difference, and which should you choose? The answer depends on what you’re looking for: Linux is all about choice. What’s the Difference? To pick properly, you’ll need to understand the strengths of each “flavor.” That might be the bling and polish of Kubuntu, the “set it up and forget about it” of Ubuntu, the retro simplicity and stability of Xubuntu, or the ability of Lubuntu to run on older and less powerful hardware. Despite the different names, all of these are based on the same underlying Ubuntu software. They include the same Linux kernel and low-level system utilities. However, each has different desktop and flavor-specific applications. That means that some are more full-featured, while others are more lightweight—so each feels a little different. Since these flavors are built to make Linux more accessible, they’re not necessarily going to score upvotes in a geeky … [Read more...] about How to Choose Between Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and Lubuntu
There’s one font that is almost universally reviled. Just the sight of it causes people to cringe in disgust. You know exactly what font I’m talking about (even if you ignore the title.) Why does everyone hate Comic Sans? Comic Sans is one of those fonts that seem to have been around forever. It’s as iconic as Times New Roman and Arial in the font world. Who created Comic Sans? Was it always as hated as it is today? Let’s learn about the ugly duckling of fonts. Who Created Comic Sans? The origin of Comic Sans is intertwined with another much-maligned Microsoft product: Microsoft Bob . While Microsoft Bob failed so quickly that many people don’t even remember it, Comic Sans has lived on. Microsoft Bob was a wildly re-imagined desktop interface made for Windows 95 . People could create their own virtual “rooms” that acted as desktops, and guiding them through everything were cartoon companions. RELATED: Why I Loved Microsoft Bob, Microsoft's Strangest Creation … [Read more...] about The Origin of Comic Sans: Why Do So Many People Hate It?
A while back we showed you how to customize your OS X Dock with themes and other kinds of changes with a small, free program. Today we want to take that a step further and create unique custom themes using that same application. If you’re not familiar already with cDock, we suggest you read our article so you know what it can do . It’s best to relocate the tiny cDock executable to somewhere like the Applications folder so it’s always there if you want to use it, plus it can automatically check for updates so you’re always using the latest version. With cDock open, go ahead and play around with it if you like. Today we want to familiarize ourselves with the custom options, so click the menu next to “Dock theme” and select “Custom” and “Apply.” Your Dock will reload plain white and semi-transparent (50%). Two text documents will also open, “settings info.rtf” and “settings.txt”. It is recommended you place these docs side-by-side to facilitate easier … [Read more...] about How to Create Custom Dock Themes in OS X
